Clean Energy

By Remy Benoit

Less dependence on foreign oil means less wars; less loss of lives for all.

From the Union of Concerned Scientists Clean Energy.

We demand this. Drilling is a short term non-solution to an overall continuing problem. Your voice is needed; your actions are needed. It is your government—tell it what you want and demand it for yourselves, for your children, for your grandchildren. It is your country—not that of big oil and huge profits, and huge tax breaks. Wake up, America and stand up.


Your voice, and only our collective voices will bring back tool and die makers; will bring back "Made in the USA" labels on your clothes, your cars, and everything else. If we do not manufacture, we cannot grow; we cannot thrive. If you do not even know what a tool and die maker is, visit with the US Dept. of Labor Tool and Die Makers. If you study history, you know that during WWII many of our factories converted to war production. If you do not have factories, you simply cannot convert should the need arise. Think about that and go and study some. Lend Lease Act, 11 March 1941. at the Naval Historical Center.

It is a tense day here in Louisiana, waiting to see what Gustav is going to do. If you think that New Orleans doesn't matter, consider it is the Gateway to the Mississippi and the country. And then, do study some more here at the US Army Infantry Homepage: Higgins Boats: The Boats That Won WWII.

Naational DDAy Museum: Higgins Plant.

For those of us all along the Gulf Coast—keep praying for the best and preparing for the worst. Yes, we can do it! And, we will.
You just might have noted somewhere along the line that AMERICAN ends in I CAN.

WE CAN—WHEN WE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE RED, WHITE, AND BLUE AND PULL TOGETHER.


God Bless.
