Economic Boost

File this one under job creator.  I believe one of the goals of Congress in its next session should be to evaluate our infrastructure and develop at least a 5 year (or better yet, 10 year) plan.  We could reconsider building new interstates and instead look at how different mass transit could relieve congestion.  Instead of approving more drilling, we could incentivize green energy much the way Germany has: require utilities to pay back at 1.5 times the rate for homeowner generated energy from renewable sources unless the utility is already providing renewable energy.

So...  To help Congress and POTUS out, here's a helpful chart detailing how our money may be best spent if we want to help the economy and put people back to work.

Hemp v Cotton, The Trial of the Century!

So there's no real trial here.  I wish there were.  Hemp is a wondrous plant and could really improve agriculture and our economy.  For that matter, it could also help the drug problem in this country.

Guys, Don't Spill Your Seed

Along the lines of what Mr. Mourdock brought up...  If its so wrong for a woman to have an abortion, even when raped or under threat to her own health, then perhaps men should be more careful with their semen.  After all, you cannot make that embryo with an egg and a sperm.

Who Really Made the National Debt

This constantly drives me nuts.  President Obama did not increase the debt exponentially as many Republicans allege.  Actually, its been the Republicans that have raised our national debt so much.

Quote of the Week

"I struggled with it myself for a long time, but I came to realize that life is that gift from God. And, I think, even when life begins in that horrible situation of rape, that it is something that God intended to happened."  -Richard Mourdock
