Obama asks Congress for $2 BILLION for
energy research as he predicts cars that
drive from ´coast to coast without a drop
of oil´

Associated Press, by Staff

Posted By:Desert Fox, 3/16/2013 7:31:38 PM

Envisioning cars that can go ´coast to coast without using a drop of oil,´ President Barack Obama on Friday urged Congress to authorize spending $2 billion over the next decade to expand research into electric cars and biofuels to wean automobiles off gasoline. Obama, expanding on an initiative he addressed in his State of the Union speech last month, said the United States must shift its cars and trucks entirely off oil to avoid perpetual fluctuations in gas prices. Citing policies that already require automakers to increase gas mileage, he said he expects that by the

What a buffoon. Apparently, he missed the ´fantastic results´ from the *first* boatload of taxpayer money he threw at ´electric cars´.

With abysmal results. Here´s a tip for our idiot-in-chief - when the tech is functional, private industry will get the job (you can´t manage) done. Until then, get your Pollyanna paws out of taxpayer pockets for the purpose of subsidizing your ´green fantasies´.

Simply put - you don´t have the brains to pull it off intelligently.

It took about 3000 (no typo) oak trees to make a seagoing hull. England, the Romans saw it as a land covered with oak trees, ran out of trees for fuel about 400 years ago. It was the shortage of trees for fuel than forced the English to turn to another source of fuel. It turned out to be coal... and coal, it turned out, was the foundation upon which the industrial revolution was built. Now we have abundant oil. If we follow the circumstances that started the industrial revolution, think of what we´ll come up with when we run out of oil. There´s a lot of difference in spending money on premature dreams and facing the necessity for doing something serious.

If Obama wasn´t a black Democrat, this comment and most of his other comments would be viewed as delusional, if not frightening. But like Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, Charles Rangel and other members of the Congressional Black Caucus, his uninformed if not mad comments are simply reported by the AP, CNN and other news outlets.

The irony is that this fool flew a jet fuel guzzling 747 to Illinois to make these insane remarks about biofuels.

What tax will make up for the lost 18.4 cents per gallon of gasoline the federal government gets, or the 69 cents per gallon of gasoline that California now collects.

Electric? Obama is forcing all of the coal generating plants to close.

I see those magic cars often. They are on railroad cars and are being shipped to dealers. Others are on large trucks on interstate highways.

The trains and trucks themselves use diesel fuel unless that has changed. Or do they also run on magic now?

Obama´ s only approach to problems seems to be forcing society to change into the one he would like to rule.. A huge plantation.

Commanding the sources of energy would help him do that. He is already close to controlling medical care.

He has talked like this since his earliest campaign days in 2008 (and probably a lot earlier), he really *believes* that all he has to do is ask, and it shall be done. In science mostly, but also generally.

He wants everyone to go back to the original ´horse´ power. But, won´t that create as much of a carbon footprint as cows? As an alternative he said recently to start using trains, buses or bikes. My guess is he would have mentioned skates but doesn´t have the balance to use inline skates.

"drive from ´coast to coast without a drop
of oil"

No big deal - you can do it now.

At 200 miles per charge and an overnight recharge - a 3000 mile trip will take 15 days.

At 600 miles per day a 3000 mile trip will take 5 days for a gas engine powered car.

$100 per night for a hotel room - that makes it $1000 cheaper for the trip with a gas engine. At 30mpg the car uses 100 gals for the 3000miles. At $4.00 per gallon= $400 a savings of 10 days and $600.

Yeah, electric is the answer.

What is the question?

The reason Leftism can never work as intended it that it is founded upon a fundamental misunderstanding of human beings and what makes them tick.

When there are bucks to be made from alternative energy sources, someone will be sure to make them. Gigantic Federal subsidies will not be required.

Until then, however, the bucks that are to be made come from the gigantic Federal subsidies themselves, for which no shortage of applicants and candidates will ever exist.

Human beings simply do not think and behave the way Leftists think and need for them to do in order for their grand plans to succeed. But there is something about Leftism itself that defeats any learning from experience. The unfortunate but completely predictable result is that failures generate only greater and more costly iterations of the same doomed strategy. The Leftist approach to public education is but one among many such examples. We are now seeing the same pattern played out in corrupt, wasteful and ineffective Federal attempts to short-circuit the market by "investments" in unprofitable businesses.

This is idiocy. The simple fact is that the sun can never power an industrialized economy like ours because of a simple fact: the sun doesn´t shine all the time. It´s interrupted frequently by weather and nighttime. OK how about we store energy generated in daytime in batteries for nighttime. Well then you´ll need twice as many windmills and solar panels (so you´ll have to cover the oceans as well as most of the land with them) not to mention you´ll need really large capacity batteries of which there are none available in the near future.

If you want an electric car that can go coast to coast (or even as far as a gasoline powered car can go) you need that really large capacity battery again, only this time it has to fit in the trunk of a car and be quickly rechargeable.

While those batteries might be developed in the future, why does the taxpayer have to pay for it? Private companies will do it at no cost to the taxpayer when it becomes possible. Until then we have plenty of fossil fuel to last hundreds of years. The excuse has been that we have to save the planet from global warming caused by burning those fossil fuels. That has been shown to be wrong and probably a hoax. There´s no need to sacrifice the economy for a scam and a hoax.

Fast-food protests to
spotlight ´wage theft´
Associated Press, by Candice Choi    Original Article
Posted By: Desert Fox- 3/17/2014 11:32:42 PM     Post Reply
NEW YORK -- Fast-food protests are planned for several U.S. cities Tuesday as labor organizers look to bring attention to practices they say illegally deprive workers of their wages. The protests are planned for about 30 cities, but it´s not clear what the scope of the turnout will be. It´s part of an ongoing campaign by labor groups to build support for pay of $15 an hour and bring attention to the rights of low-wage workers. Organizers have also been referring workers to attorneys, who filed lawsuits in three states last week saying McDonald´s was stealing their wages in a

Maybe Barack Obama should have given Zach Galifianakis an off-ramp, like the one he keeps trying to offer Vladimir Putin. Those were some pretty barbed lines the president unloaded on the comic actor last week in their semi-parodic "Between Two Ferns" interview. In case you´re wondering why I´m writing about this—well, I am too. A Malaysian jetliner has vanished into thin air, while Russia has completed its seizure of Crimea and may yet invade other parts of Ukraine. Serious stuff, you might say. But the big story of last week as far as the president is concerned is his appearance alongside

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

Secession: Following Sunday´s forced referendum and despite U.S. and European Union sanctions, it looks like Russia will succeed in separating Crimea from Ukraine. Are the borders of every country now up for grabs? We´ve heard all the arguments, including that Crimea´s population is 58% Russian, and that it was only in 1954, during the Soviet era under Nikita Khrushchev — himself a Ukrainian — that it became part of Ukraine. But allowing Crimea to be pried away from Ukraine by threat of force after Russia´s fraudulent referendum sends a signal to disgruntled regions of the world that, when it comes to borders,

LOS ANGELES — A National Guard reservist has been arrested at the U.S.-Canada border in Washington for allegedly trying to aid al-Qaida in a plot to attack a Southland subway. Nicholas Teausant, 20, of Acampo, Calif., was charged Monday with attempting to provide material to support a foregoing terrorist organization, the U.S. District Attorney’s Office said. Teausant was arrested at the Canadian border “with the intent of continuing to travel to Syria to join the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, a foreign terrorist organization more widely known as al-Qaida in Iraq,” officials said.

In an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” that aired on Sunday night, the California Democrat said a drone spied into the window of her home during a protest outside her house, and that privacy concerns for the technology were “major.” Feinstein appeared as a pro-regulation voice in a Morley Safer segment on the legal questions surrounding the commercial drone industry. “When is a drone picture a benefit to society? When does it become stalking? When does it invade privacy? How close to a home can a drone go?” Feinstein said, listing

Putin is set to respond to Obama´s sanctions of Russian officials with his own list. Several U.S. Senators and officials will be banned from visiting Russia, including Sen. Dick Durbin. U.S. senators, congressmen and top Obama administration officials are sure to be on Vladimir Putin’s sanctions list; a response to the Obama Administration’s announcement on Monday that 7 Russian officials and 4 Ukrainian officials would be barred from holding assets or traveling to the United States. Putin is expected to release his retaliation list as early as Tuesday and while the final list is still being crafted, it will include top Obama

Paris — As Russia absorbs Crimea and masses 60,000 troops on Ukraine’s border, is the West serious about sanctions against Moscow? The best test could come this Tuesday, when the defense and foreign ministers of Russia and France are scheduled to meet for long-planned talks on relations between the two countries. French president François Hollande has already announced that “there will be sanctions Monday on visas and assets of a certain number of [Russian] individuals if there is no de-escalation.” But he absolutely must go further. Three years ago, France signed a military contract worth $1.7 billion to build two advanced-technology Mistral-class

In national poll after national poll, a majority of Americans oppose everything Obama´s doing.

What´s the matter with kids today? Dana Milbank, a grumpy old man at the Washington Post, would like to know. He´s not literally talking about kids, but about voting age adults--the "army of 15 million voters under 30" who "swept [Barack] Obama past Hillary Clinton and John McCain and to the presidency in 2008," and the smaller force, "more than 12 million," who "helped him return in 2012." "But now his presidency is on the line," Milbank warns, "and the Obama youth are abandoning him in his hour of need." Which is to say that few of them are buying overpriced

WARSAW — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. arrived here Tuesday for a lightning visit to reassure Poland and the Baltic states that the United States will protect them from any Russian aggression similar to the actions it has taken in Crimea. In two days of meetings with the leaders of Poland, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, Mr. Biden is expected to pledge new but modest military and economic measures to shore up the NATO alliance and build solidarity in the face of the deepening crisis in Ukraine. Mr. Biden’s trip is designed to send a visible message to Russia, reinforcing sanctions the

The words came out of my mouth before I could stop them. “I feel sorry for Obama,” I said. As my wife looked at me in disbelief, I quickly added a correction. “Well, almost.” Beset by failures at home and abroad, the president cuts a lonely and sad figure these days. His aura of grief reflects his profound loss. His worldview crashed headlong into reality, and reality won. Obamaism is dead, may it rest in peace. That’s sad for him, but hold the tears — his loss is mankind’s hope. If Obama wakes from his utopian visions and faces the

Catholic League president Bill Donohue is blasting beer companies that pulled their support for the St. Patrick´s Day parades this year. Donohue Mondaycalled for Catholics to boycott the companies behind Guinness, Heineken and Sam Adams for dropping their sponsorship of the parades in New York City and Boston over the refusal of organizers to allow gays and lesbians from marching under a banner. In an email, Donohue blamed the "bullying" against the parade on its "Catholic element." "I have had my last Guinness and Sam Adams. Heineken was always slop, so there is no sacrifice there," Donohue wrote. "I urge

President Obama on Monday slapped Russia with the kinds of economic sanctions not seen since the Cold War, but the administration’s supposed hard line was met with mockery and a “collective shrug” in Moscow, Kiev and Washington. One day after Crimeans voted overwhelmingly to secede from Ukraine and join Russia, the White House and its partners in the European Union responded by targeting high-ranking officials in Moscow along with pro-Russian figures responsible for the unrest in Ukraine. The move adds even more tension to a dramatic standoff between Russia and the West, but early signs suggest the latest round of

First lady Michelle Obama "has been looking for an opportunity to go to China," a White House official said on Monday. And she considers it a "real treat" to take her daughters and her mother with her -- a trip she´s making at considerable expense to taxpayers, although the White House refused to give a dollar figure. "You know, the first lady has talked about the importance of young people here in the United States learning about other cultures. She believes that about her own children, and has seen this as a really unique opportunity to share a very different

White House executive pastry chef Bill Yosses is resigning after First Lady Michelle Obama fundamentally changed his job duties to focus on healthier food. Yosses is leaving the White House in June to work on a new project focusing on “food literacy” and The New York Times says Michelle is “partly to blame.” The openly gay chef was hired by Laura Bush in 2007 to make his trademark cookie plates and sugar sculptures. Mrs. Obama took over in 2009 and ordered Yosses to make healthier plates in smaller portions. (Snip) “I don’t want to demonize cream, butter, sugar and eggs,”

Hillary Clinton may well be the most "known" politician in the world. She and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have been on the national stage for more than two decades -- traveling from Arkansas to the White House to the Senate to the 2008 campaign trail and finally to the State Department. During that time, every look and utterance from Hillary has been examined, then examined again, then analyzed, then overanalyzed. That´s why this series of photos -- shot by LIFE magazine in 1969 as part of a feature on outstanding college students -- is so fascinating. It captures

Error 404: U.S. officials plan to relinquish federal control over the administration of the Internet to something called the "global Internet community," which is full of tyrants to whom the free flow of information is a threat. In the wake of the NSA surveillance scandal, some might not be inclined to defend federal involvement in anything related to the flow of information between individuals. But the decision announced Friday by the Commerce Department to give up next year its oversight of Icann, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, to the "global Internet community" is a bad idea.

“I think we’re in for a tsunami-type election in 2014,” Republican National Committee chairman Reince Priebus told the audience at Tuesday morning’s Christian Science Monitor breakfast in Washington, D.C. Looking ahead to this fall’s midterm elections, Priebus boldly predicted big gains for the GOP, especially in the Senate. ”My belief is, it’s going to be a very big win, especially at the U.S. Senate level, and we may add some seats in congressional races,” Priebus predicted. “But I need to and we need to at the RNC make sure that we can capture the positives and the benefits we’ve been

WASHINGTON—In what was described as a major ramping up of sanctions, Secretary of State John Kerry announced on Tuesday that the United States had frozen Russian President Vladimir Putin’s Netflix account, effective immediately. “Unless and until Mr. Putin calls off the annexation of Crimea, no more ‘House of Cards’ or ‘Orange Is the New Black’ for him,” Mr. Kerry said. “The United States will not stand by and reward the annexation of another sovereign nation with a policy of streaming as usual.” While all of the sanctions Mr. Kerry announced on Tuesday were Netflix-related, he warned Mr. Putin that
