Inflate your tires…All will be well

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.

A nice gesture by the House of Repesentatives

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

But It not going to Change my life or my relatives life at all. But again it is very good gesture.

Pelosi” I am saving the planet, I am saving the planet”

You gotta wonder the mindset of most Democratic leaders and some left wing bloggers, talk radio and tv talkshow host newspaper columnist  who bash President Bush on his Christian Faith, meanwhile we have the Democrats like Presidential  nominee Senator Barack Obama, Senate Majority Harry Reed, Former Vice President, Nobel Peace, Oscar award winner Al Gore Jr.;and of House of Representative Speaker Nancy Pelosi who in her tour of her new book “Know Your Power: A Message to America’s Daughters.” Playing God while Talking to David Rodgers of Politco.com

“I respect the office that I hold,” she says. “And when you win the election, you win the majority, and what is the power of the speaker? To set the agenda, the power of recognition, and I am not giving the gavel away to anyone.”Its seem to me that democrats like to play God as opposed to the president living Christ like

With fewer than 20 legislative days before the new fiscal year begins Oct. 1, the entire appropriations process has largely ground to a halt because of the ham-handed fighting that followed Republican attempts to lift the moratorium on offshore oil and gas exploration. And after promising fairness and open debate, Pelosi has resorted to hard-nosed parliamentary devices that effectively bar any chance for Republicans to offer policy alternatives.

“I’m trying to save the planet; I’m trying to save the planet,” she says impatiently when questioned. “I will not have this debate trivialized by their excuse for their failed policy.”

Is it interesting that Democrats like to play God and despise  president Bush who tries to live his life Christ-like.  Just thinking

Hope for Comprimise on Oil???Eh Not so Much.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rock and rolling in So Cal

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.

Good News for Obama 9 points over McCain.

A new Gallup daily tracking poll has Democratic Presidential Nominee Senator Barack Obama ahead of Republican Nominee Senator John with a Nine point lead.  Each day  Senator Obama edge a point a day. Still we need to see how other tracking polls cover th the period of the trip from others Pollsters like, Zogby, Rassmussen, and others. http://www.gallup.com/poll/109102/Gallup-Daily-Obama-49-McCain-40.aspx

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.

Meanwhile, McCain is still struggles with the vision message( remember “The vision thing” what the President’s father George Herbert Walker Bush struggled while running for Re-election in 1992 and lost to  then Governor Bill Clinton.) 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!

Well, 100 more days to go!
