We could use compressed natural gas, plentiful and cheap in the USA, and be rid of foreign oil forever, says former Shell Oil CEO John Hofmeister.
Bumper sticker of the day: YOUR WALLET: The only place Democrats want to drill.
Remember when establishment Republicans claimed Gerald Ford could beat Jimmy Carter, but Ronald Reagan could not? Rockefeller-Ford-Bush Republicans fought against Ronald Reagan’s ascendancy to the top. They now control the party and fight against any upcoming Reagan conservatives.

He would rather you not know this.
“Charbucks” coffee, Laura Ingraham calls it. “It tastes burned,” she says. I agree. I prefer Dunkin Donuts - smooth coffee. You can buy it at reasonable prices at big warehouse discounters. Sometimes I see it at a Hallmark discount store in downtown Lawrenceville, Georgia. I never go to Starbucks.
