Hippes can suffer. The evidence is mounting of the great success of fracking and the astonishing failure of hippie power projects:
Enter the Apollo Alliance, which is a project of the George Soros-funded Tides Foundation. Apollo forged a new labor/environmentalist that would both limit fossil fuel use and spend billions promoting green energy.
Since renamed the BlueGreen Alliance, the group launched with a report calling for $500 billion in spending to create a “New Apollo Program” for the U.S. economy. It included federal subsidies for green car companies and solar firms, cash to make existing buildings energy-efficient, new power line construction and billions for new mass transit systems.
The New Apollo Program called for a cap-and-trade plan designed to drive energy producers away from fossil fuels and toward renewable energy like solar, wind and biomass. Apollo promised these new initiatives would create 5 million new jobs.
The Obama campaign fully embraced the Apollo vision, producing its own New Energy for America document that largely mirrored the Apollo report. The only real difference was that Obama’s plan created 5 million new green economy jobs for just $150 billion. Read more »
This looks hilarious…doubt it will screen here though.
A group of Muslim-American standup comedians go on the road counter Islamophobia using the only weapon they have: jokes. The Muslims Are Coming! follows these comics as they visit big cities, rural villages, and everything in between to do shows, meet locals, and counter the haters. Commentary from pop culture icons like the Daily Show’s Jon Stewart, Rachel Maddow, Janeane Garofalo, CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, David Cross, and Lewis Black pepper the film as the comedians travel through middle America. Will audiences laugh? Will they make a difference? Will they make it back? Rest assured, you’ve never laughed this hard at a Muslim!
This is so funny…even the hippies divided into a class society.
Jon Stewart talks about the “Hack-job from Wasilla”
Barack Obama promised “Change”. Americans have got chump change and you know things are bad for the President once Jon Stewart starts whaling on your ass.

The Lions were comprehensively beaten in Christchurch tonight.
The weather was absolutely appalling as was the Lions ability to catch a rugby in a line out.
Ali Williams is the stand out player for the forwards….hope they replace Justin Marshall with those woefully slow and wobbly old passes and the backs did a reasonble job considering the weather.
We should see a good old fashioned hiding on a good track with fine weather.
I heard somewhere that this Lions team was supposed to be the best prepared ever…..hmmm….hate to see what they look like un-prepared.
