Read about some of it here on another peakoiler's blog. This is quite disturbing news. All Republicans and I believe between about 9 to 11 Democrats voted it through. I really can't believe it. I'm semi-tuned in to politics but less so, of late, due to focusing my concerns around peak oil, other fossil fuel depletion, and trying to make my community a better place to live for the future.
Just in case the voting isn't rigged yet (it may very well be at this point, I don't know), I think everyone that can vote should try it and see what we can do about this. Our whole government (both sides) needs cleaned up. I lost hope after '04, however, this really needs some attention. People! Wake up! Please!

Anyone catch this little editorial online yet? Good informational editorial on peak oil. I don't know what to think about the cheap gas that has surfaced so near to the elections here in the U.S. I've been saying it would happen since January! Now that everyone else is on the bandwagon, I want to jump off! ...I'm such the contrarian! If the markets are being manipulated by the powers that be, they certainly won't hike the prices up now that everyone believes it is so! We'll wait and see but I now feel the low prices will extend through the holiday season to boost consumer spending. Not sure why, as I am no educated economist nor a market expert, but it seems to work this way. Maybe I just better stick with posting the links and let them speak for themselves....
