Frankly I don't care where the oil comes from. But what I do know, no matter how much Republican faithful try to spin it, is that it's not the business of the national government per the Constitution to require, coerce, cajole, or give a break to private industry on how they engage their business. If the free market, through market pressure only, eventually goes to a different form of energy that's their business, not the business of the national government.

"Third: We need to encourage children to take more math and science, and make sure those courses are rigorous enough to compete with other nations. We have made a good start in the early grades with the No Child Left Behind Act, which is raising standards and lifting test scores across our country. Tonight I propose to train 70,000 high school teachers, to lead advanced-placement courses in math and science … bring 30,000 math and science professionals to teach in classrooms … and give early help to students who struggle with math, so they have a better chance at good, high-wage jobs. If we ensure that America’s children succeed in life, they will ensure that America succeeds in the world."

How does this sit with GWB wanting to increase the number of foreign workers coming here for hi-tech jobs?

Does every thread have to be about illegal immigration?

Some people are single issue fanatics. They watch the whole speech waiting for one word to jump on. So predictable.

Cindy Sheehan was taken into custody by police in the House gallery just before President Bush's State of the Union address.

An official said police escorted Sheehan from the visitors' gallery above the House chamber after she caused a disruption.

Bush and Carter both like to pronouce it "nucular". It bugs the snit out of intellectual snotty types. I heard one scientist friend say before the 2000 election he refused to vote for anyone who couldn't pronounce "nuclear".

Switchgrass has several other environmental benefits. If it is used to produce energy, it will reduce the risk of global warming by replacing fossil fuels (coal, natural gas and oil). When fossil fuels are burnt, carbon is removed from below ground (gas and oil wells and coal mines) and release into the atmosphere as carbon dioxide (CO2). This is a greenhouse gas that increases the risk of global warming. In contrast, switchgrass (like all other plants) removes CO2 from the atmosphere and incorporates it into plant tissue, both above and below the ground.

"A hopeful society has institutions of science and medicine that do not cut ethical corners, and that recognize the matchless value of every life. Tonight I ask you to pass legislation to prohibit the most egregious abuses of medical research – human cloning in all its forms … creating or implanting embryos for experiments … creating human-animal hybrids … and buying, selling, or patenting human embryos. Human life is a gift from our Creator – and that gift should never be discarded, devalued, or put up for sale."

Im suprised by this ethanol thing WEare developing the tar sands in Alberta as we speak

I am too.

I have a feeling that behind the scenes, Stephen Harper's people and GW's people are having serious talks, very serious talks.

I am PRAYING that the Canadian government can hold on and fix the relationship.

I wish they'd institute fixed four year elections.

Oh man, we're on to gay marriage and Katrina

SHUTUP WITH YOUR GUEST WORKERS PROGRAM. I haven't read anything on this thread. I don't need to. Bush again blunders on this. He couldn't shutup on it, again this crap. That's why I'm turning him off. There are millions just like me doing the same. That alone was enough to tune me out. The Republicans are going to suffer because of this idiocy.
