if we "spread freedom" to Iran we're gonna be in a whole lot of trouble. although i can't verify this, my brother told me that he read an article around the first of the year where China claimed that if we attacked Iran they would "stop us". I don't really know what entails "stopping us", and quite frankly, i don't wanna know.
along with being all-around mean spirited folks, they're also law breakers.
i'm in the publishing industry, and you wouldn't think it, but copyright infringement cases can get ugly. USA Next better hope that photo isn't copyrighted (but in that letter it sounds like it may very well be).
and i hope those two men sue them for defamation of character.
I have not one problem with gay people. I've known gay people all my life and I see no reason why they should be denied rights.
I'm sure there are probably gay democratic politicians. what i find so striking about the fact that Ken Mehlman 'might' be gay is GWB's strong opposition to gay rights. I mean Ken is the chairman of the GOP! The party of (ex)clusion!
I did some searches on the web earlier and found that many of these Ken Mehlman rumors dwell mostly in the left-wing blogosphere, so I don't want to go around yelling "He's gay!". by doing that I stoop to the level of the GOP...God forbid.
I've been hearing a lot lately about Biodiesel. If you don't know what Biodiesel is, here's a brief description:
Biodiesel is the name of a clean burning alternative fuel, produced from domestic, renewable resources. Biodiesel contains no petroleum, but it can be blended at any level with petroleum diesel to create a biodiesel blend. It can be used in compression-ignition (diesel) engines with little or no modifications. Biodiesel is simple to use, biodegradable, nontoxic, and essentially free of sulfur and aromatics.
It's basically made up of vegetable oil.
So, I was wondering what everyone thinks about this stuff. Do you think it could possibly give petroleum a run for it's money, thus, lessening our dependancy on foreign oil? I mean, we're gonna run out of oil someday, right?
or do you think gas-electric hybrids are a more likely solution?
I know this isn't straight politics, but given our current president's association with the oil industry, I thought it might be an interesting discussion. besides, there are fairly obvious political points (the environment and foreign dependancy on oil).
