Should Be Us

Here's a major oil company that is trying to get the lead on new energy. How businessly astute. How forward looking. How progressive. This is showing some leadership. Too bad it doesn't describe an American company. I want my country back!

Norsk Hydro is a major player in offshore oil fields that make Norway the world's third largest oil exporter, after Saudi Arabia and Russia. It is also involved in developing alternative energy sources, including wave and wind power.

News You Might Have Missed

You know, the liberal media is missing this stuff all the time. See, here's another one! I'm starting to wonder if they might be doing this on purpose! It's a vast left wing conspiracy to protect Bush and his agenda. Ya that's the ticket!

The Clue Is About To Be Got

The survey shows a growing sense of disconnection between official Washington and ordinary Americans. "There's a gap between perceptions of President Bush's and Congress's agendas and the public's agenda," Mr. McInturff says. That is reflected in the attitude of respondents like Jodie Baca, a 57-year-old waitress in Bernalillo, N.M. "They should focus a little bit more" on the economy, says the self-described "strong Republican" voter. "If the gas prices go up, our minimum wages should go up -- like soon," she says. Now, she says, she's having second thoughts about her vote last November for Republican Rep. Heather Wilson.

Hey "strong Republican" voter. Come on over and join us. We actually believe in stuff like that.

America Haters

For some reason the Muslims don't seem to like being pushed around.

The United States should emphasize its development aid to Muslim countries rather than try to persuade Muslims to support U.S. policies in Iraq or in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, according to the Council on Foreign Relations report. ...............When asked what they wanted from the United States, focus group members said respect and aid to develop as their countries choose.

Gee ya think?!

Coffee Table

Your home for various and sundry thoughts and brainstorms. Mix it up.

At Last

Finally the narrow minds have decided to let something new in. Hallelujah! Let's hope they figure this all out before it's too late. But of course there is no reason to change anything if you are always right.

The Council on Foreign Relations, which usually reflects State Department thinking, has recommended the restructuring of Iraq into six states under a single national government. The council, in a report entitled "Power-Sharing in Iraq," warned that even with elections an Iraq led by a strong central government might not be democratic......Phillips, a former adviser to the U.S. government, proposed the establishment of two or three states dominated by Shi'ites. Another state would be comprised of mostly Sunnis and a third state would be Kurdish. Baghdad would be a separate state.
"Consistent with the principle of decentralisation, federal Iraqi state and local authorities should have the ability to adopt laws that conform to local custom," the report said.

This is what I fear may happen now. Let's hope not.

I fully expect the Newsweek story to be all-consuming over the next week, at the very least. It will be dissected endlessly on talk radio, on cable TV, in newspapers. And throughout all the discussions, the points identified above will be emphasized without end, so that all these ideas become more widely accepted by more and more Americans: that the riots were “caused” by the Newsweek story, that the mainstream press is basically anti-American and not to be trusted, and that something might finally have to be done. That would be terrible, but that rotten, traitorous mainstream media just didn’t give us decent, patriotic Americans a choice, did it? That’s how this game is played, and those are the stakes

Downing Street Memo

Your Mission is....Should they decide to do so, how do they waffle this one? I'm sure it will have something to do with we just didn't know. Or something along the lines of this waving flag, ignore that man behind the curtain.

Peace Is Just Around The Corner

Well, good news! The back of al queda is broken! Even more interesting, buried at the end of the piece is the US warning them not to build their own oil pipeline.?

Welcome to the Future

I don't know if this particular idea is the right answer or not but it certainly has possibilities for brainstorming at least. Too bad we can't get people in America to start doing this more.
