The Sierra Club Exposed

The Federal Government (BLM, Federal forest lands, etc) owns about 50% of the State of Oregon (which is the 10th largest state). Suffice it to say, until the last spotted owl drops dead of old age, nothing is being done on Federal land. We just had an opportunity to divert Columbia River water to the arid eastern Oregon like our neighbor Washington. Our State government wouldn't hear of it. The State of Oregon has sabotaged reloading permits to move coal to the Columbia River ports for overseas shipment because someone, somewhere will burn that coal and add to global warming. Jobs lost in a State that hovers around 10 % unemployment. The Sierra Club is very strong in urban Oregon. They organization exists to destroy the industrial basis of this nation. Red to the core.
I am not a free marketer in matters of national security. I agree that tariffs can allow the inefficent to survive. I also know that a lack of tariffs allows products produced abroad by industries who do not have to abide by the great regulatory scheme of the West; worker safety, worker compensation for injuries on the job, unemployment benefits, solid and liquid waste sanitary disposal, etc. to compete unfairly. I think France, as a country, and with a need to be agriculturally independent, if the need arises, must support French agriculture. How much and whom is always the question.

Are you writing of Charles the Hammer, the victor at Tours? I agree.

I can only hope that our nascent energy independence will make the Mediterranean cesspool of politics and cultural antiquity meaningless to the US. Think of the lives and treasure we could save.
George Bush had more black people in his cabinet than President Obama. Think about it. I'm not sure a head count means much but it would have been easy to have an all white/all male cabinet. President Obama almost did.
That would make way too much sense for the US position. I mean, John McCain likes the jihadists, isn't that enough?
That's the beauty of being an ideologue. The Plan is never wrong.
And the cost of expanding and mating with the grid. As well as the cost of having conventional production in reserve in case the wind is blowing or there is cloud cover, etc.
1% my bleeding nether region. Who says. Where are the Muslim mobs in the street, renouncing violence and pledging solidarity with their Christian and Jewish fellow citizens. Any reading of the Koran will tell you, without any interpretation, that the entire religion is one of conquering army bent on world domination and the death and destruction of all the non-faithful. Wake up.
