Dominant Special Interests dominate our Exports – Wall Street and the Oil and Gas Industry.

it shouldn't come as a surprise that gas is now one of our leading exports. But nothing or noone - other than lobbyists - says it has to be.

And our energy conservation efforts are still woefully difficient.

The Oil and Gas Industry propoganda machine strikes fast, hard and repeatedly to get what it wants.

Dead Wolves are politically important to Democrats found in their range.

Got to get those votes.

info about Medicare rate change

I received an email from a friend who forwarded an email he received from "Stacy". Stacy's email stated that Medicare premiums were going up 8% in 2012 to $104.20, 15% in 2013 to $120.20, and 105% in 2014 to $247.

That is the position of education: there is no knowledge. They simply advertise ignorance as knowledge.
