    news. No carbon tax, no large scale alternative energy programs, I don't know whatever happend to high speed rail.

    Everyone is talking cuts, not stimulus.

    •  Pet peeve: alternative energy programs (6+ / 0-)

      I hate the phrase "alternative energy" because it implies something other than the "rightful" energy sources. Frankly, petroleum and coal are just as much alternative energies ans wind, solar, geothermal, etc.

      I like "sustainable" much better. Petroleum and coal can't glom on to that one, because they will, by definition, run out one day.
