Saving The Oil
George W. Bush said on Tuesday there was no quick fix to lowering record fuel
prices and that oil in the U.S. Strategic Petroleum Reserve
should be saved for supply emergencies.
President Bush on Monday
lifted an executive ban on offshore oil drilling and challenged Congress to
follow suit, aiming to turn the enormous public frustration about gasoline
prices into political leverage.
Democratic lawmakers rejected Bush's plan as a symbolic stunt.
Bush signed a bill giving phone companies immunity for letting the government
spy on its customers without a warrant. Isn't that unbelievable? President Bush
said 9/11 changed everything. And you know, he's right, because violating the
Constitution and breaking the law used to mean jail time. Apparently no more."
boils down pretty simply. If you are the Obama campaign, would you prefer to be
spending this week talking about his Iraq plan, which is their message of the
week beginning today, or dealing with the New Yorker visuals, I suspect they
would rather be talking about their change plan for Iraq." -

...really miss you. I feel like an addict going thru withdrawal when you don't post. lol I hope your day off went well.
Awww, big hug Ben. As you know, I rarely take a day off unless it is very important.
Yesterday was a day of extreme highs
and lows. I drove my son to the Atlanta airport to begin his yearlong journey
studying in China. (fist bump to his grandmother for giving him this life
enriching opportunity) I told him I wanted two Chinese grandchildren by
this time next year. ;)
One funny incident did occur at the airport. My son and I were posing for a last picture before he entered the security checkpoint, a TSA official, courteously told his father who was taking the photograph, not to take a picture of the security checkpoint and to turn the opposite way for the photograph, which we instantly did. I love Atlanta airport, they are so polite.
I hope you had a good time today
