Let’s draft Al Gore

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

There are already a few lonely voices out there trying to jump-start a draft Al Gore political movement.  Maybe it’s time to help these voices to grow into a choir. 

Suggesting a draft campaign for the presidency in the current political environment is, of course, hopelessly naïve.  Today’s presidential campaigns are all about stockpiling money; and with the current front-loaded primary process, the fattest early bird is almost guaranteed to get the worm.

No, suggesting a draft campaign is as quaint and starry-eyed as, well, as the very idea that a politician might actually dare to take on Big Oil, the automotive industry and our entire SUV loving, gas-guzzling culture in order to fight against something as esoteric (if terrifying) as global warming.

But I can’t help myself.

A long overdue message from Steve

Sunday, April 30th, 2006

To post, or not to post: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler to force others to suffer
The slings and arrows of fatigued utterance,
Or to by silence save them a sea of troubles.

I haven’t posted for quite a few days; much thanks to Greg for filling in, as hopefully he will continue to do, at least on occasion, for a little while longer until I’m home.  In the meanwhile, I am going to try to start dropping in a few posts here and there.  

This one probably won’t be up to of my usual literary standards (C+ level composition for a 5th grader).  I’m dead tired.

My elderly father recently developed a critical and very complex cardiac problem.  For a number of reasons I won’t bore you with, it was important I be present to help manage things.  So, on very short notice, I flew through bumpy skies to Bangor, Maine.  No sooner had I jumped off the plane then they decided to transfer him by ambulance to Boston.  So I took the rental car and drove Mom down.  We’ve been here three days so far. 

At first, they were going to perform surgery on a semi-emergency basis (they kept saying it would start in one more hour, one more hour, one more hour), but ultimately they put off out of concern over a possible infection.

I’m not sure how long I’m going to be here, or how often I’ll be able to “speak” with you (even aside from spending most hours at the hospital, the wireless Internet service at the hotel moves with all of the speed and grace of an intoxicated slug), but I’ll try to stay in touch.

And thanks to those of you who have written or posted comments with words of support in response to my earlier obscure post.

Best,

Steve

Politicians, Hookers and Your Tax Dollars

Friday, April 28th, 2006

Kos collects the latest on the Duke Cunningham/MZM corruption investigation and it’s more bad news — and potentially lethal news — for Republicans.

Republican  ‘Family  Values’  in action

I don’t like to snicker at anyone’s downfall (I hate those “Funniest Home Movies” shows and “American Idol” because they seem to be more about laughing at and taking advantage of the painful misfortune of others), but it makes for such a great weekend kickoff when the meanest group of politicians I’ve ever known keeps getting dragged back into the oily quagmire they created for themselves.

Like the large creatures who still inhabit the La Brea tarpits, we can only hope they remain encased in their misdeeds and stand as examples for all who follow.

Exxon Mobil Made $8.4 Billion in Three Months

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

As John Stewart might say, “Whuuuhhhhhh?

Exxon Mobil Corp., the world’s largest oil company, said Thursday that higher oil prices drove first-quarter profit up 7 percent from the prior year.

Net income rose to $8.4 billion

Three Months. That’s net: $2.8 Billion a Month, $93 Million a Day, $3 Million an Hour, $64,000 a Minute, $1080 every second for three months. Let me repeat that: $1080 in profit, every second, for three months. Can someone check my math, please, because that’s simply mind-numbing.

Meanwhile . . .

High Gas Prices Impact Vacation Plans

So what’s behind the rise in gas prices?  Analysts blame the record cost of crude oil on concerns over Iran’s nuclear ambitions, combined with tight U.S. gasoline supplies.  Supply problems in Iraq, Nigeria and the Gulf of Mexico are also pushing oil prices higher.

What does Bush do to help the gas price? A useless suspension of environmental regulations. Well, useless as far as gas prices are concerned. Oil company profits will likely rise, again.

Fortunately . . .

The president has authority to relax rules for only 20 days at a time without additional congressional approval.

But, when has congressional approval ever got in the way of the Bush administration.

Here’s a list of the most fuel efficient vehicles. Get ‘em while they’re hot.
