Looking For A Fix

Islamophobes in this country have to find a new reason to hate Iran, as today, Russia and Iran agreed to enrich uranium in Russia. This enriched uranium is for the nuclear power plant that Russia is building at Bushehr. This means that once again the Bush administration is not telling the truth about another Middle Eastern country. And of course, I'm not talking about UAE being such a good ally, rather, I'm speaking of Iran's intentions to build a nuclear power plant.
So, barring another "terrorist" attack, the Bush administration has to find another way to stop Iran from trading the oil that US corporate hegemonists covet.
Perhaps the Bush administration will turn it's sights on Venezuela , which has threatened to cut off oil shipments to the US if the Bush administration dosn't back off it's attacks on Venezuela. When will these people learn (Evidently, never) that you can't go around threatening sovereign nations? People around the world don't hate us because we're free, they hate us because our government is a bunch of dicks who have no problem bullying weaker nations (i.e., every other nation in the world). We're like a junkie with the biggest gun in the world, breaking into everybody's house to get our fix.
Experts within the industry say Venezuela might have a problem finding a market for their oil, but I don't think so. Thanks to corporate America out sourcing jobs to India and China, their demand for oil is on the rise.
So while the flag waving, beer drinking, chemically imbalanced brain damaged mouth breathing jackanapes advocate a military solution to everything because their too busy watching NASCAR to see who is screwing the pooch, the rest of us our wondering, is there any American wet dream these people can't fuck up?



E85 enthanol, a blend of 85% ethanol and 15% gasoline is in the near future. It is a renewable fuel that is currently made from USA grown corn. Can you imagine if Walmart's buisness was reduced by over 70%? That is what will happen to our friends in the middle east once this project gains ground, and it will be in cars this year, not in twenty years. The USA is tired of this conflict, and is going to buy into a way that will avoid doing any buisness with them. I'm sure you will find something else to talk about once it is a reality.
GM starting advertising this program recently, to try to regain there usefullness. I have known about the fuel for years, as the model T ran on it. History repeats itself.

Is there anything they can't fuck up? I assume that's a rhetorical question. Of course they can fuck it up. That's the only thing they're competent at.

what do you think
I think this is a good idea. we could then stop bombing the Middle East, pull our troops back home, which would stop them from hating us, which in turn would end the terorist attacks, thus ending the need to suspend our civil liberties. And i know i will find something else to write about. (Although Kunstler has said that this actually requires more energy to produce than is gained from the process and is not much of a solution, but what does he know?)
Of course they'll find some thing else to fuck up, as general incompetence has been a hallmark of the Bush administration.

The hydrogen fuel cell was developed by GM 39 years ago. If it had been researched like computer processors we would all be driving vehicals that ran on 0 emission fuel cells. Ethanol is a bad short term solution. It's a net energy loser. The cost of production doesnt even include the government subsidies for corn production. As a nation we have a lack of resolve whne it comes to using less energy.

Hi Lew.

I don't think we've met before but I just saw your comment about homophobia on Delilah's blog. I'm the person who commented right before you.

Thank you. It's hard to let go of the ideas of a lifetime and most don't even try.

Ann (aka granny)

It's me again - just looked at your profile. Hank Snow and Lefty Frizzell? We're both in a time warp.

Most people have heard of Hank Williams but who except you and me have heard of those two? Nice going.

I don't think the Bush administration poked their noses into hockey yet, eh?

Lew Scannon said...

I'm sure it never occurrd to Bush to go after the mullet head vote.


Nice imagery today, Lew.

I'm getting to love your sarcasm... hegemony sucks, doesn't it?
