22. actually, I listened to O's speech
but not to Maddow or KO about the speech. I cringed at the AQ moment-here we go again, terror, terror, terror. I thought the speech was just another speech-not one where you wanted to stand up a yell, "hell, yeah", let's get moving-roll up our sleeves and start working now on green energy and energy independence. And, the "god bless us everyone" at the end-I had thoughts of *. That's my perception of the speech-didn't have to listen to Maddow or KO. So flame away!

It was funny, Stewart had a clip of President Ford on last night-showing a calendar-telling the public about each month when congress didn't pass bills for energy independence. And, I thought, since Ford we've been attempting to change our energy ways-I think Carter was the most effective, then Reagan dismantled all of it for his little oil buddies. Of course, we all know that the Bush family are oil men-so no progress there.

But just like health care-years and years go by and nothing big is ever accomplished--just maintaining the status quo. If we do not grow (that means innovation, social evolution) as a country, we will stagnate and die.
