Citizen Energy

In New England we are blessed to have a Santa on an oil fuel truck named Joe Kennedy. Yes, he is from the world famous Kennedy clan. When it comes to rock stars of charitable work then Joe Kennedy is the Mick Jagger of the Rolling Stones.

Some people have a problem with Joe Kennedy’s public charity that delivers home heating oil to many people in the New England area at huge discounts. For the life of me I can not comprehend why they have an issue with Joe Kennedy but some people just do not understand what real human kindness is. I’m thinking, Joe worked in our government, saw how polarizing it was to get anything done and just made up his own mind to just make it happen on his own.

Finally a Realistic Energy Policy

It only took 32 years for the Congress and the White House to finally realize that the sacrifice American’s need to make is in our energy consumption. All of the SUV’s that are gulping down the Go-go juice will have to change and that is just the beginning of the end of the oil monopoly in the world. President Bush has stated that he will sign the bill into law and frankly I thought he would have vetoed it based on some ridiculous facts. I am frankly and apologetical ly stating that I was wrong about President Bush and this issue. Stuff that up your back side Haszinski! That is another story from another post.

Through all the arguments in the House and in the Senate over the last few weeks we now have a compromise and an energy policy that just might reverse the madness that is our energy usage. Over at the New York Times they have this coverage on the only real energy policy change in 32 years in America…

The Three Horsemen of Shame Finally Retired

There are no tears in my eyes with the sudden announcement that the last of the three horseman for President Bush is leaving public service. He is following in the well respected footsteps of our first horsemen of shame, Tom Delay who never saw anything illegal and you or any court can not prove it. Then of course Trent Lott is also following in the footsteps of shame of former Speaker of the House Denny Hastert, the second horsemen of shame who pretended that a congressiona l representati ve (Mark Foley) affection for boy pages was nothing to really worry about. Trent Lott was nothing more than a yes man for anything that would benefit the rich in this nation at the expense of the masses. That makes him the end of the Three Horsemen of Shame. Over at the New York Times they have this little diamond on Trent Lott’s retirement from the Senate…

Lott to Resign His Senate Seat Before Year’s End By ADAM NOSSITER and DAVID M. HERSZENHORN
Published: November 26, 2007
PASCAGOU LA, Miss. Nov. 26 — Senator Trent Lott of Mississippi, who was forced to step down as Republican leader in 2002 after making a remark that seemed to support segregation, announced today that he will resign by the end of the year.

Speaking to a crowd of supporters at a televised news conference in Pascagoula, Miss., Mr. Lott said he and his wife, Trish, had decided that they still had enough “time left to do something else” after his 35 years in the House and Senate.

He said he had “nothing definite at this time,” but suggested he might want to teach. He said he had called President Bush and Vice President Cheney last night to notify them of his decision.

He was re-elected in 2006 to his fourth Senate term and had rebounded to become the No. 2 Republican this year after his party had lost its majority in the Senate. But in recent months, Mr. Lott, 66, has made no secret of his deepening frustration in the Senate, not only because his party is in the minority but also because an increasingly bitter partisan divide this year has left little use for his skills as a deal-maker. - New York Times

The Truth Hurts, Part II

Jeez, you think you know a guy, and then BAM!

Former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan’s memoirs, ‘The Age of Turbulence: Adventures in a New World’ doesn’t go on sale officially until Monday, but already the White House has fired back at two charges he levels.

Greenspan writes that “the Iraq war is largely about oil.” — ABC News
