    where my husband and our nephew the beautiful tile setter have 'business' meetings and can only afford the time for 9 holes.

     I think not only are the political optics a screw you but like the ACA, this is a done deal and the energy 'experts', are letting us know that the savvy businessmen have this covered. In the State of the Union speech Obama clearly stated that climate change was to be addressed by a market based approach. The solution he offered after a nod to 'clean' energy was drill baby drill, frack baby frack and of course sand tar piped through our land and clean coal shipped to China through my state.

    I listen now to what the presidents rhetorical double speak is really saying. God knows I was chastised enough here for not listening correctly during the campaign. I do recall however that Obama distinctly said in regards to health care policy that it the health care for profit industry would no be the only ones at the table. So at least the for profit market based energy policy is not being negotiated at a table but arrogantly links.
