  • Are Americans Willing to 'Wait for the Wind'?

    Great moment of honesty at the end of this article in The Hill on liberal energy policy. The body of the article covers how the Democrat leadership in the House is in full retreat on energy policy after realizing that the American people prefer conservative policies on the issue, which call for more development of U.S. domestic energy resources such as drilling in the Outer Continental Shelf.

    Summing up the current liberal zeitgeist on energy, one Democrat aide told The Hill: “Right now, our strategy on gas prices is ‘Drive small cars and wait for the wind.’”

      I don't know why, but it really is comforting to see that liberals still think and act like liberals.

      "Wait for the wind?" I'm scared as hell for the future of our country.

      I encourage Congress to re-think one of the alternate energy programs, i.e., wind turbine.

      I am presently pursuing the State of Ohio rebate program for installation of a wind turbine ( 15 KW ) for my farm–Shamrock Farm.

      It would be most helpful if we also had some type national program, as well.

      I have no doubt that my Ohio Edison Electric utility power obligation each month will increase drastically without some auxiallry power.

      I have communicated with my senators: Voinvitch and Brown. I have received some encouragement from Brown, but nothing from the Republican.

      Sincerely,

      Scott Gray
