      James Carville said on the show that we just can't take those coal mining jobs away from the coal minors, because that's all they know. Well, if they don't get green jobs instead, they won't have a planet, much less a job on the planet. Yeah, Carville is about as useless as expecting a rattlesnake to kiss gently.

        Wow, that's the type of arrogant, lofty assumption that usually the TP throws around to stereotype their own "side."  I'm sure the magical green job fairies will show up in these historical areas and POOF!  The coal miners will live happily ever after! ;P

        Mr. Carville has been in the centrist Democratic trenches since probably before you/I were born, and I respect him.  What he means is, you have generations upon generations that have worked in those coal factories.  It pretty much IS all that they know.  

        If you want to promote and market green efficiency to these areas (and I agree with you about the critical need for green jobs), you have to convince them to let go of everything that they know -- their livelihood and security depends on this -- and once they let go of their fear and accept the realities and practicality of green efficiency, then you need to EDUCATE AND TRAIN.

      ...when I hear people say the Republicans and Democrats are exactly the same: You've been listening to the Koch Brothers.

      Every time Bill Maher makes a conservative look like a phony, narrow minded idiot with little compassion for minorities, the poor, the jobless, gay folks etc., he does this country a favor.

      Maher sends me into fits of laughter.

      He's terrific !
