Lady Tonge resigns Lib Dem party whip over Israel remarks
Peer rejects ultimatum from Nick Clegg, saying she stands by comment that 'Israel will not be there for ever'

#1  Tonge, who was sacked as the Lib Dem children's spokeswoman in the Commons in 2004 when she suggested she could consider becoming a suicide bomber, sparked the row after raising questions about the future of Israel.

I will not pass remarks in her appearance, except to say that's what she looks like when she's trying.

Chu to Congress: We┬'re not interested in lowering gas prices
┬"We agree there is great suffering when the price of gasoline increases in the United States, and so we are very concerned about this,┬" said Chu, speaking to the House Appropriations energy and water subcommittee. ┬"As I have repeatedly said, in the Department of Energy, what we┬'re trying to do is diversify our energy supply for transportation so that we have cost-effective means.┬"

Chu specifically cited a reported breakthrough announced Monday by Envia Systems, which received funding from DOE┬'s ARPA-E, that could help slash the price of electric vehicle batteries.

He also touted natural gas as ┬"great┬" and said DOE is researching how to reduce the cost of compressed natural gas tanks for vehicles.

High gasoline prices will make research into such alternatives more urgent, Chu said.

┬"But is the overall goal to get our price┬" of gasoline down, asked Nunnelee.

┬"No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil, to build and strengthen our economy,┬" Chu replied. ┬"We think that if you consider all these energy policies, including energy efficiency, we think that we can go a long way to becoming less dependent on oil and [diversifying] our supply and we┬'ll help the American economy and the American consumers.┬"

This guy is a genius? The economy is inextricably tied to the price of oil.

#3  Well they actually said it. The O Administration is not interested in trying to lower gas prices. The higher gas prices forces people to drive less and use less gas. Get used to it - they know what is good for us and we will comply. The priority is on alternative fuels. They think US gas prices should be like Europe. They can't see beyond their own existence - high rise apartment buildings, shopping at street level, taxis and trains and mass transit. Forget about the rest of the country - Let them eat cake.

#4  Reminds me of the woman on TV talking with dreamy eyes about how glad she was that she wouldn't have to worry about putting gas in her car or paying her rent since O had been elected.
Rubes.

#5  > The economy is inextricably tied to the price of oil.

Sort of. The economy is tied into the affordability of oil.

#6  No, the overall goal is to decrease our dependency on oil...

In one respect you gotta give Chu his props. He did properly describe the US reliance on oil as a "dependency". His boss, on the other hand, prefers to call it an "addiction". In other words, when it comes to oil americans have a compulsive disorder. Always remember, if you don't agree with the progressives...your irrational.

#7  A guy who was reported (by TV) to be driving his car on Bio-Diesel in Illinois was arrested for "trying to avoid the gas tax" so advocating people switching to Nat-Gas or Electric power in Illinois would have to be viewed (by president) as advocating the non-payment of state gas tax and therefore a criminal act.

#8  So the Bammer wants the US to reduce its dependency on effec fossil fuels in order to support our new desired future national, pro-SPACE GOVT-ORDER dependency on various Internat SpaceProgs which are either budding, or in the alternate crashing???

Yet, while also holding off on dev reliable "Global/Universal" Govts, Perts Consensus on PEAK OIL/RESOURCES LEVELS in support of said SPACE GOVT-ORDER.

AND WHEN THE OIL SANDS = SHALE OIL IS NO MORE, WHAT THEN???

LACK OF RELIABLE GOVTS, PERTS CONSENSUS = the US-World could be running out of vital resources, + wouldn't know about it until it was too late.

["TANK GIRL" Movie here].

Lest we fergit, 1990's NET > GLOBAL ENERGY, RESOURCES COLLAPSE = ISLAM WINS BY DEFAULT, as per the mandatory worldwide protection of leftover resources, i.e. the NOW RESOURCES-POOR "GLOBAL DESERT/STEPPE".

SHEIKH SEAN CONNERY in "THE WIND + THE LION" > IIRC "When the Trees are all gone + the Good Soil is now burning sand/desert, My People [Berbers = Muslims] will still be here [long after the last European has died or left]".

Or words to that effect.

Home Front: Culture Wars
House Democrats have left the Iowa Capitol in protest of gun bills
Run away, run away
More cowardice from the Democrats, who once again find themselves on the losing side of an issue.
Iowa House Democrats this morning left the Capitol in protest of two gun bills the Republican majority had planned to debate today that critics contend would make the state part of the "Wild, Wild West."

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy accused House Leader Linda Upmeyer of failing to properly inform legislators about planned debate today on the bills. The short notice hindered Democrats from offering amendments to improve the bills, McCarthy said.

But Upmeyer, R-Garner, shot back this morning that Democrats did have adequate warning, and suggested their flight from the Capitol was an attempt to make a political scene.

"Iowans didn't send us down here just to do easy stuff," she said. "The Second Amendment is a question that many Iowans would like placed before them. I don't know why they're afraid to have a debate on a subject just because they don't like the subject. That seems ludicrous to me."

One bill would alter the state constitution to specifically include gun rights. Another would rewrite the law on "reasonable force" so that a person may use force -- including deadly force -- against someone who they believe threatens to kill or cause serious injury or who is committing a violent felony.

"(Upmeyer) said they will debate those bills today whether we like it or not," said McCarthy, D-Des Moines. "I told her that we've been double crossed, and we will not be debating those bills today."

In response, Democrats have moved to an undisclosed location. Republicans hold 60 of 100 seats and could debate the bill without Democrats since they have a quorum. The majority party sets the calendar for debate and guides the course of business on the House floor.

"We have been double-crossed as a caucus, and we're not going to sit back and be treated with historic misuse of power," McCarthy said.

In a statement released after the Democrats exited the Capitol, McCarthy said the Republican leadership told Democrats yesterday the gun legislation would not be considered today. Because they didn't believe the bill would come up today, he said, Democrats did not file all the amendments they wanted to offer on the bills prior to the deadline set in the House rules.

When met by a reporter after the Republicans adjourned from a party caucus, Upmeyer rejected McCarthy's argument. The gun bills were noticed in the same manner as any other bill that could come before the House, she said -- in a calendar that is updated and circulated to lawmakers everyday.

When Democrats asked what the Republicans intended to bring up today, Upmeyer said she gave them a list of non-controversial bills, but left consideration of other bills "open-ended."

"Every member knows that anything that comes out of committee and is placed on the calendar is eligible," Upmeyer said.

A House spokeswoman added that Democrats had in fact already offered an amendment to one of the gun bills, indicating that they had had ample time to develop proposed changes.

Upmeyer said she was not sure whether the House would convene and begin considering bills in the Democrats' absence. As of 10:45 a.m., the chamber remained at ease, with Republican lawmakers sitting casually at their desks or chatting in small groups on the House floor.

More guns = less crime = less need for police = lower social costs. A positive externality that should be sales-tax free.

I welcome the Deomcrat's attempt to be on the other side of this issue. Please keep up the good work.

Blue on blue: Landrieu blasts Salazar, White House over drilling moratorium
Nice collection of You tube clips and other sources at hot air. Seems the dhimocrats are starting to hear from their constituents, and the voters are pissed.
There's an election coming, I hear. I bet Landrieu gets back on the reservation in January, 2015 when she has another six years.
