That's what you do during a campaign, is you try to reach an audience that hasn't already made up their minds.

    First off, the continuous use of Fossil Fuels over decades does alter and damage the environment. This is a scientifically proven fact. We're in the 21st century and we're still dependent on 17th century fuel resources. Something's wrong with that picture, don't ya think?

    Second, if he's so worried about where the next Thomas Edison and Henry Ford is going to come from, then maybe he should be concerned about how our government is cutting funding to education, research/development and stonewalling new technology and industry because they are beholden to the 'Old Ones'. The next Edison and Ford, and the next big industries (Jobs!) are going to come from those new scientific and technological arenas.
    I'm not really sure why we'd want another Edison, whose greatest talent was stealing other people's good ideas. (One could say similar things about Jobs...)

    Well then, the makers of this video certainly found a good hiding place for their embarrassing ignorance of the facts. And you know...reality.

    I really think they think we are idiots just looking for the next hand out

    "Two years ago, we made history together by finally passing health reform," said Mrs. Obama. "And because we passed this law, insurance companies will now have to cover basic preventive care--things like prenatal care, mammograms, contraception--at no extra cost."
    As if gov't can just just dictate free stuff and no one will have to pay the freight

    So the Stafford Loan interest rate is currently set at 3.4% and they want to raise it to 6.8?!? That's ridiculous. That's a higher interest rate than people are getting on their homes! Savings accounts are earning 1/2-1%! 3.4% is quite adequate based on today's interest rates and doubling it is a skeevy way for the government to generate revenue on those who can least afford it.
