    This will undoubtedly escape much of the coverage in today's news.

    However, one of the most momentous and historic turning points took place today on Capitol Hill.

    A key turning point regarding the future of our country and where Congress and the Administration will be heading regarding our energy strategy in the 21st century:

    Well it's not as open as the Cheney's Energy Task Force!

    But, yes, I got your drift.

    That was the big news? I thought it was when the whole Senate gave Ted Stevens a standing ovation. At least that should be a BIG WTF!

    Washington Politicians are the scum of this earth, they should all be dragged out into the street and shot.

    Many of them read this forum, I say unto them, "F-ck You All You Grinning Scumsucking Swine Vermin Diarrhea Bastards"

    .....and now another one, today.

    The pieces are all coming together regarding the U.S actually embracing the 21st century with regards to technology/energy:

    Playbook 24/7 - Politico.com

    11/21/2008

    ......SCOOP: Politico’s David Rogers hears that President-elect Obama is close to landing Retired Marine Corps Gen. James L. Jones, former Marine Corps commandant and head of U.S. and NATO forces in Europe (“Supreme Allied Commander” — one of the great titles), as his national security adviser. The omniscient Mr. Rogers e-mails: “That could be a very strong NSC like we haven’t seen in a long time.” Befitting his resume, Jones would be given a commanding role. He also was considered for Secretary of State and Secretary of Energy. General Jones currently is President and Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy. From his bio: “At the request of the U.S. Congress, Jones recently chaired the Independent Commission on the Security Forces of Iraq.”
    _______________________________

    Note carefully - - he is currently the head of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Institute for 21st Century Energy.

    Waxman yesterday and now Jones. Finally, we will be getting onto the playing field and will start competing (and winning again) with regard to the future of energy.
