51. Something like nationalizing oil would not likely have been part of any
Edited on Sat May-07-11 07:02 AM by No Elephants
formal party platform, so I would not take that literally. (Maybe the poster meant JFK said or threatened it while he ran for President?)

Also, not everything is on the free internet, even though it sometimes sees that way. Poster may have read that in a book or once heard someone from FDR's administration speak.

Not saying the other poster's assertions are accurate or not, 'cause I have no knowledge about the info referred to.

" It would give me evidence to show how unacceptably to the right the debate has shifted."

See the links in Inna's reply, below.

Also, I've bee thinking green energy subsidies may be the new oil subsidies. We all like to hear "green," so we don't mind them. However, it's a very similar principle: pay folks to try tp make private money from something like wind, without holding them
accountabble for very much.

I haven't really developed my thinking on that yet, though, so I probably should not be posting it.
