The Jaker

Mostly rational politics, with occasional rants about how a few crazy Republicans are ruining the country.

Not exactly a call for sacrifice
President Bush's version of "urging conservation" goes "We can all pitch in by being better conservers".

Where is the discussion of how our dependence on oil necessitates us intervening in situations overseas in which we should have no business, or how our economy is beholden to the whims of the Saudi royal family?

Where is the call for a sea-change in oil consumption habits, with a rallying-cry for investment in solar, wind, and hydroelectric energy, as there has been in Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, etc?

Where is the dramatic push for people to choose hybrid or diesel engine cars?

Ah yes, I momentarily forgot. Our President and Vice President used to run oil companies.
