OK the presumptive Democratic nominee Senator Barack Obama did not that say that but he did say this
Senator it’s true that keeping you tires inflates saves on your mileage; That’s common sense! However, opening up drilling offshore and in ANWAR, creating new types of batteries for your car and trucks, making solar energy affordable to the masses, maybe moving vehicles to natural gas safely, open Nuclear power plants, wind turbines; etc.(I think not to uses of bio-fuels which may have contributed food shortages around the world.)
We all types of products to end foriegn dependence oil and have a real energy policy, Senator not platitues.

Yesterday, the House of Representative did a nice gesture by apologizing for Slavery, the bill introduced by Representative Steve Cohen of Memphis (D),TN. The motion was carried by a voice vote. Here the article via brietbart.com:http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=080730134027.m9puooa5&show_article=1
Full disclosure, I am 41 year old American of African and Afro-Panamanian decent (Dad from Texas and Mom is naturalized US citizen back in 1990 originally from Panama) ;the congress did a nice gesture. But It not going to Change my life or my relatives life at all. But again it is very good gesture.
Tomorrow, a bipartisan coalition House Democrats and House Republicans a so-called gang of 10 are presenting a bill that would allow off shore drilling, no drilling in ANWAR, tax credits for solar panels, wind turbine etc. but Speaker of the House of Representatives want noting to do with drilling According to this article calling from PR Newswire via Breitbart.com and the drudgereport:http://www.breitbart.com/article.php?id=prnw.20080730.DC29223&show_article=1 Pelosi states; the president’ call for drilling a hoax. Saying the president own says it takes years to see any change in the price or oil to the fore. The truth is According to Eric Bolling commodities trader and Fox Business Network correspondent. Bolling has talked to several oil industry researchers and they told him oil can be available in 18 mos on the low side and 3 years high side. And the price of oil has dropped 15% since President Bush signed Execuctive order allow off shore drilling.
Will Pelosi allow the comprimise tomorrow to a vote??? Don’t hold your breath!!! And you wonder why Congress has a 9 % approval rating! Sheesh!!!!!!!!!!!!!

i was in bed not feeling well when I was rattled out of the bed from a 5. 8 magnitude earthquake. The earthquake was center in Chino Hills an upscale suburb 30 miles east of Downtown Los Angeles. I jumped up and ran to the door frame of the room. A few minutes I walked out the room and check the house and everything was fine. Of course the media is in overkill mode. I which I expect. So friends and neighbors all is well.

The senator’s trip turnout to a success meeting with world leaders including iraq’s Nouri Al-Maliki who agree in principle to the 16 month; although he back pedaled a couple days later said Al-Maliki was sticking with the General Petraus plan. Senator Obama, when interview by CBS Evening News Anchor Katie Couric about success of the surge and he denied that the surge is working. And the flap of not visiting the wounded troops in Germany may hurt in the public standing. So far So Good but he needs to widen his lead.

Mc Cain need to get a vision ,2nd he needs to focus the success of the surge, 3rd drill. drill, drill McCain need to focus on the energy independence issue. not only its an energy Independence issue but a national security issue. 4th get excited He need the equivalent of political Viagra in large doses!
