Dependence on Oil America

Did not see the full report on Obama's initiatives today on this subject. Fuel efficient cars and alternative energy sources must be the focus.
My apartment building changed from oil heating to a ground based "heat pump" solution just over a year ago before the oil price surge. Our costs dropped dramatically. We still depend on electricity however. As the apartment is in Switzerland most of our electricity is Hydro.
What is happening where you are?

A Call for Action with Obama

Are the American people ready to respond to President Obama?
The first indications are that they all ready doing so...

Will the politicians play ball or will the the Lobby boys and girls gum up the system as they have done so much in the past?
Sadly there were some uncomfortable looks being passed between the old conservatives in the crowd yesterday... Perhaps the people will overcome!

Will the some of the "Clenched fists" yield to the offer of an open hand?
Sadly they probably will not... Let us hope for a surprise!

Let us hope for decisive action in the months ahead, and Good Luck to President Obama, his Family, the American People and the Rest of Us.

Inauguration - Oh What Can Obama Say!!!

What can Obama say in his inauguration speech to the Wifes, Husbands, Children who have lost Loved ones in Afganistan and Iraq.... Can he tell them Why?

What can he say to the sick and infirm who cannot afford the medical help they need... Is this the American way?

What can he say to the jobless or those who live in fear of becoming so in the "Great American Dream".....

What can he say to the Arms dealers who are doing so well.....

Can he Love his fellow man enough, and comfort to those who grieve in these most "interesting" of times...

Good luck and I wish you much Wisdom.....

Obama Politics and Love - Views and Opinions

These Opinions on Obama Politics and Love are mine alone.

The heady attraction of power and more importantly the responsibilities that it brings offer Obama a great opportunity to do real good for the American people and the the larger world population.

Can he finally bang heads together in the Middle East so that the senseless killing stops and the politicians recognize their responsibilities to protect their citizens and not use them as tools through which to exercise power?

Will he be able to help the poor at home? Particularly the ill and weak...

And can he survive the cowards who would do him harm because of his position and background?

What do you think.....
