Solar World Round Up 11-06-09

While the GOP keeps up the steady drum beat about doing nothing to address health care - in other words doing the insurance companies bidding. America falls behind.

I'm sure the GOP will be staking out the same do nothing position when it comes to energy reform doing Exxon/Mobils bidding, and America lags behind. The Status Quo wants every last one of our dollar bills for themselves. Who cares if they cripple the entire national economic system and chew up our "disposable" income crushing our economic backbone - small business.

Meanwhile China is spending multiple billions of dollars on clean energy technologies across the board, wind, solar and electric cars while we fight to preserve our outdated business models and the enormously rich and vastly few they benefit.

Hurry up and pass this health care reform so we can reform the energy sector and spur on jobs for our unemployed. Boehner doesn't even know the difference between the Constitution and the Deceleration of Independence and he wants to run Congress. He doesn't speak for me that over tanned freak. Get off the golf course and pick up a history book asshole.

Here's the rest of the world beating us to the punch while we protect the uber wealthy's profit margin on outdated health care and energy systems.

Hi Paul. First, thanks for your visit and comment at Politics Plus. I added Journey Home to my blog roll there.

On topic, the best opportunity we have ever had to restore our manufacturing base is to take the lead in green energy technology. I feel outraged that our Senate has put the energy bill off until next year.

Thanks for an excellent article!
