In Light of My Last Post

My last post concerned Saudi fears that their protégés in ISIS could invade Saudi Arabia in an effort to capture Mecca. While I certainly wouldn't cry if the Saudi authorities were deposed by their own creation, the fact that gasoline prices would probably spike is of some concern.

It's a damn good thing that the Bush Administration, in the wake of the Saudi-funded and Saudi-implemented 9/11 attacks, decided to make energy independence based on renewable power sources a priority, and ushered in a "Project Apollo" scale push for clean, cheap energy.

Damn, my knee is bruised from all that slapping, and if this is a joke, why are my eyes red?

It's not hard to be slightly better than Bush and Cheney. Thing is, we need way better.

Yeah, it's crazy how stupidity reigns when we really need some intelligence to bail the species' chestnuts out of the fire.

Short-term greed, though, is trumping long-term survival.

We came so close, too, until the Cheney administration decided to renege on the Kyoto-agreement discussions. The basic premise of 'The Arrival' -- aliens in our midst, sabotaging the human race's attempts to organise because they have their own plans for the planet -- seems depressingly plausible at times.
