  • Quote: "If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom and yet deprecate agitation are people who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. That struggle might be a moral one; it might be a physical one; it might be both moral and physical, but it must be struggle. Power concedes nothing without a demand." - Frederick Douglass.

  • In the US gas tax is fixed, not percentage. Rather than a gas tax, there are those in Congress who say to have a road tax instead, using GPS in every vehicle to measure how many miles people drive. It is not related to carbon usage, and heavier cars, for example SUVs, tear the road up more.

  • Article: Obama 'wasted' reform chances by Edward Luce. According to Nicholas Brady, the former US Treasury secretary.

    "You cannot conduct the biggest overhaul in 75 years by trying not to offend too many people. When you're relying on the chairmen of committees on Capitol Hill to help get healthcare reform through, or cap and trade, then you don't want to offend them by removing their turf. Again, what's the hurry? Why not take the time to get this right?"
