All the talk about the surge and now it seems we are considering another round of “the splurge”. Personally I think we could put money to use in much better ways than just sending everyone in the country a few bucks.
We could create jobs in the alternative energy space if we would just focus some attention on it. It would be nice if the winner of this election truly decides to focus on alternative energy. There is a reason oil has cut in half lately, if it stays at the $150 a barrel range then we will be forced to make a beeline for alternative energy. If they keep us happy around $70 per barrel then the sheep will just turn a blind eye as we have done for decades.
