Thought For The Day....Set Me Free

"It is error alone which needs the support of government.
Truth can stand by itself.” — Thomas Jefferson

I think what Thomas Jefferson was saying was that human beings and our activities are like a well built sailboat.  We may tip and keel over in a storm, but we will right ourselves.....if left alone.  It seems everything the government gets involved with, health care, education, energy policy, economic stimulus, the home mortgage business, interventionist foreign wars, and most everything else, they screw up.  I think human beings were designed or evolved to be self-righting survivors and problem solvers.  Quite obviously, if that was not the case we would not be here.

As I think Ronald Reagan said, the scariest words in the human language are "I'm from the government, and I'm here to help."  Think about it.

- not going all the way, and not starting."

you told people."

The "Truth" About Oil

This looks like a very interesting and worthwhile website.  I will be following it closely and hope you do also.

Watch the following video.... click on the link to the website, then watch their movie trailer...

America is addicted to oil. President George Bush said so… and now that phrase is echoed everywhere. But are we really “addicted”?

Our daily lives are dripping in oil. It’s in virtually everything we use and fuels everything we do. To be sure, it is something to worry about. Are we going to run out? Aren’t we fighting wars for oil? But, if we do slow the flow, how will that change the way we live?

When it comes to what we’re told about oil, there’s rhetoric and then there’s reality. Who can we believe? The media? Politicians? Environmental activists? You’d be surprised.

For nearly ten years, journalist turned media analyst MARK MATHIS has studied our use of oil. And what he found shocked him so thoroughly that he made a movie about the misinformation, distortions and even outright lies about oil.

We do have an “oil problem” in America (and the world), but it’s not what you’ve been told. So, it’s time to Fill Up on Truth… for a change.


Give credit where credit is due.  I must confess that Al Gore and his crusade to stop climate change/global warming, with all its consequent lies and stupidity, inspired me to create this blog.
