The State of Our Goverment

From the United States Constitution
“The President shall from time to time give to Congress information of the State of the Union and recommend to their consideration such measures as he shall judge neccessary and expedient.” (Article II, Section 3)

If The State of the Union address is a cheer fest based on lies and empty rhetoric why bother?

The President has dismissed many aspects of the Constitution, why not this ceremonial waste of time?
Congress doesn't seem all that interested in truth. The President is incapapable of telling the truth so don't watch our government fail us right in front of our eyes on 10 different channels, let's get rid of them, again.

From Campaign For America's Future


The Real State of The Union

Education:

•2005 State of the Union:" We'll make it easier for Americans to afford a college education, by increasing the size of Pell Grants."

•2005 State of the Union: "To keep our economy growing, we also need reliable supplies of affordable, environmentally responsible energy"

•2004 State of the Union: "Consumers and businesses need reliable supplies of energy to make our economy run -- so I urge you to pass legislation to modernize our electricity system, promote conservation, and make America less dependent on foreign sources of energy."

•2003 State of the Union:" Our third goal is to promote energy independence for our country, while dramatically improving the environment"

Why is it that the "State of The Union", has little factual information to allow the American people to acurately judge the state of our union?
Why can't congress ask for and receive facts from the President?
Why do they seem content to be spoon fed crap and ask for more?
The Democrats act like neutered, yes men, more interested in politicking than representing the voting people. The Republican party who march in lockstep with the most incompetent President in recent history, act like they're nothing more than corporate whores who rely on think tanks and CEO's to dole out policy.
Our government is in need of whosale changes. While they baby step towards reform we lose our representation, our power and our voice in government.
Do not vote based on party. Register as an Independent. Force all candidates to beg for your vote. Give your vote to whoever will make the sweeping changes our government really needs.
Let's get rid of them again.

Andre M. Hernandez,

EXCELLENT !
Great points !
Lots of good information there !
The then-and-now comparisons are quite revealing.

Please allow me to add to the list of serious issues that are still not being adequately addressed.

Our government is in need of wholesale changes. While they baby step towards reform, we lose our representation, our power and our voice in government.
You’re right. We no longer have time to waste. Our troops deserve much better. The irresponsible incumbent politicians just don’t get it yet. And I am worried that the continued inaction of our irresponsible elected politicians in Congress will hasten and increase the painful consequeces. For somethings, it is already too late.

More education (like your article) is needed.
In a voting nation, an educated electorate is paramount.
Must we wait until the lesson is most painful ?

Andre,

Really great article. It’s nice to see others look beyond the pomp and circumstance.

“The Democrats act like neutered, yes men, more interested in politicking than representing the voting people.”

That’s unfortunately all too true of a number of Democrats. I almost swallowed my teeth when Kucinich extended his hand to Bush, and I don’t even have false teeth :)

gw,

There are many fine people that can run the Government.

The problem is that the Congress we have is still 90% of the same bunch that was there before. So, why do so many think it has suddenly turned over a new leaf?

Especially when our most pressing problems are still NOT being adequately addressed ?

What Andre M. Hernandez wrote above (and he is 100% right), is that there are still too many in Congress that don’t yet get it, that are still more interested in things other than the most important things facing the nation.

Based on 30+ years track-record, events just since 07-Nov-2006, and 90% of Congress are the same incumbents that were there before the election, it is essentially still:

  • the same teams (merely taking turns being the IN PARTY and OUT PARTY)

  • the same players (90% were re-elected)

  • the same old game

  • the same old results (the nation’s problems still go ignored)
The politicians don’t care, because they still believe voters will still keep rewarding them by repeatedly re-electing 90% of them.

And, unfortunately, voters are likely to keep doing just that, until the consequences of it become too painful.
And they will.
Some of our lessons are already on the way.
In a voting nation, an educated electorate is paramount, and the voters will get it one way or another.
Sooner would be better than later.

Andre M. Hernandez,
You should be commended for your objectivity and ability to see the things you outlined above.
However, you will run up against a lot of resistance from both sides.
But don’t worry.
What you are recommending is exactly what will happen in the end when voters have finally had enough.
In a voting nation, an educated electorate is paramount, and voters will get their painful education.
It’s already in the pipeline.
Much of it is already unavoidable.
The voters will be motivated by the painful consequences of their own negligence for blindly, continually rewarding irresponsible incumbent politicians by repeatedly re-electing them.

Stop Repeat Offenders !
Stop Rewarding them by Repeatedly Re-Electing them.

gw,
BTW, I completely with your statement:

gw wrote:
We are like children who did not get what they wanted for Xmas.Spoild Rotten Adults that will never agree on anything Important!!

It sad, but true.
I believe it is a cycle.

But it can’t last forever.
There is something that finally slows the decline.
It’s pain.

American voters will eventually stop rewarding irresponsible incumbent politicians when doing so becomes too painful.
And we are approaching that time.
However, it may take a long time.
It’s 2.000 steps forward, and 1.999 steps backward.
Sometimes we make a large leap forward.
Sometimes we gradually slip backwards.
We’ve been going backwards for a while (30+ years).
The pain of those consequences are starting to be felt, but they could get much, much more painful before the electorate finally figures it out.

Look, if you dont like the fact that the american people voted in president bush and the fact that he tried to do things during the last congress (and the congress bebofe that) but was held back by dems giving fillibusters, and other nonsense holdups then you can to some foreign place and start up your own little world were everything is perfect and the president of your country is some jolly happy fellow with no stress. When you have yop our own little perfect la la land then you can complaign about the man we elected. but until then maybe you should consider the fact that the dems were so rude during the speech and didnt give their boss any ovation for his goals that you guys will screw up worse then everything else he has proposed.

MANDATORY RENEWABLE ENERGY – THE ENERGY EVOLUTION –R11

In order to insure energy and economic independence as well as better economic growth without being blackmailed by foreign countries, our country, the United States of America’s Utilization of Energy sources must change.
“Energy drives our entire economy.” We must protect it. “Let’s face it, without energy the whole economy and economic society we have set up would come to a halt. So you want to have control over such an important resource that you need for your society and your economy.” The American way of life is not negotiable.
Our continued dependence on fossil fuels could and will lead to catastrophic consequences.

The federal, state and local government should implement a mandatory renewable energy installation program for residential and commercial property on new construction and remodeling projects with the use of energy efficient material, mechanical systems, appliances, lighting, etc. The source of energy must by renewable energy such as Solar-Photovoltaic, Geothermal, Wind, Biofuels, etc. including utilizing water from lakes, rivers and oceans to circulate in cooling towers to produce air conditioning and the utilization of proper landscaping to reduce energy consumption. (Sales tax on renewable energy products should be reduced or eliminated)

The implementation of mandatory renewable energy could be done on a gradual scale over the next 10 years. At the end of the 10 year period all construction and energy use in the structures throughout the United States must be 100% powered by renewable energy. (This can be done by amending building code)

In addition, the governments must impose laws, rules and regulations whereby the utility companies must comply with a fair “NET METERING” (the buying of excess generation from the consumer at market price), including the promotion of research and production of “renewable energy technology” with various long term incentives and grants. The various foundations in existence should be used to contribute to this cause.

A mandatory time table should also be established for the automobile industry to gradually produce an automobile powered by renewable energy. The American automobile industry is surely capable of accomplishing this task. As an inducement to buy hybrid automobiles (sales tax should be reduced or eliminated on American manufactured automobiles).

This is a way to expedite our energy independence and economic growth. (This will also create a substantial amount of new jobs). It will take maximum effort and a relentless pursuit of the private, commercial and industrial government sectors commitment to renewable energy – energy generation (wind, solar, hydro, biofuels, geothermal, energy storage (fuel cells, advance batteries), energy infrastructure (management, transmission) and energy efficiency (lighting, sensors, automation, conservation) (rainwater harvesting, water conservation) (energy and natural resources conservation) in order to achieve our energy independence.

“To succeed, you have to believe in something with such a passion that it becomes a reality.”

P.S. I have a very deep belief in America’s capabilities. Within the next 10 years we can accomplish our energy independence, if we as a nation truly set our goals to accomplish this.
I happen to believe that we can do it. In another crisis—the one in 1942—President Franklin D. Roosevelt said this country would build 60,000 [50,000] military aircraft. By 1943, production in that program had reached 125,000 aircraft annually. They did it then. We can do it now.
The American people resilience and determination to retain the way of life is unconquerable and we as a nation will succeed in this endeavor of Energy Independence.

Solar energy is the source of all energy on the earth (excepting volcanic geothermal). Wind, wave and fossil fuels all get their energy from the sun. Fossil fuels are only a battery which will eventually run out. The sooner we can exploit all forms of Solar energy (cost effectively or not against dubiously cheap FFs) the better off we will all be. If the battery runs out first, the survivors will all be living like in the 18th century again.

Every new home built should come with a solar package. A 1.5 kW per bedroom is a good rule of thumb. The formula 1.5 X’s 5 hrs per day X’s 30 days will produce about 225 kWh per bedroom monthly. This peak production period will offset 17 to 24 cents per kWh with a potential of $160 per month or about $60,000 over the 30-year mortgage period for a three-bedroom home. It is economically feasible at the current energy price and the interest portion of the loan is deductible. Why not?

Title 24 has been mandated forcing developers to build energy efficient homes. Their bull-headedness put them in that position and now they see that Title 24 works with little added cost. Solar should also be mandated and if the developer designs a home that solar is impossible to do then they should pay an equivalent mitigation fee allowing others to put solar on in place of their negligence. (Installation should be paid “performance based”)

Installation of renewable energy and its performance should be paid to the installer and manufacturer based on “performance based” (that means they are held accountable for the performance of the product - that includes the automobile industry). This will gain the trust and confidence of the end-user to proceed with such a project; it will also prove to the public that it is a viable avenue of energy conservation.

Installing renewable energy system on your home or business increases the value of the property and provides a marketing advantage.

Nations of the world should unite and join together in a cohesive effort to develop and implement MANDATORY RENEWABLE ENERGY for the sake of humankind and future generations.

Just because some voted for Bush doesn’t mean he has a free rein to screw up everything possible, defy the majority of Americans that don’t agree with him, and the majority of Congress that no longer agrees with him. Especially since Bush and Cheney are out of touch and only interested in salvaging their failed legacies, no matter how many have to die to prove it.

If Bush is allowed to continue with more blunders (and there’s no reason to think the blunders will now end), there will most likely be more death and destruction.
Also, is it the right thing for our troops?
Should our troops be used this way?
How many more U.S. troops must die and be maimed to salvage Bush’s failed legacy.
Is Iraq salvagable?
The quagmire in Iraq is not making the U.S. safer.
It’s time to start pulling out of Iraq.
Most Iraqis don’t want us there anyway.
Most U.S. troops don’t want us there either.

  • Most Iraqis polled want us to leave (who can blame them?). 82% of Iraqis “strongly oppose” the continuing occupation, and 45% of Iraqis feel attacks against coalition troops are justified! The battle for hearts and minds has already been lost!

  • A poll of U.S. troops in Iraq (released by the Zogby International polling firm) finds that 72% of American troops serving in Iraq think the U.S. should leave Iraq.

  • In March of 2006, 25% of U.S. troops said the U.S. troops should leave Iraq immediately.

  • Our troops deserve better. It’s not right to subject our troops to danger for nation-building and baby-sitting civil wars. Iraq will have their civil war with or without us.

The cost will be enormous (money and the lives of Iraqis and U.S. and coalition troops).

Water is the source of life - treasure it! R4.
Water is the source of all life on earth. It touches every area of our lives. Without it, we could not thrive — we could not even survive.

Sustainability – “We strive to meet the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs”.
We should discourage wastefulness and misuse, and promote efficiency and conservation.
“Conservation is really the cheapest source of supply,”
For the benefit of mankind, maintain the quality of life and preserve the peace and tranquility of world population. Water resources must be preserved - to sustain humanity. We must eliminate wasteful utilization of water, conserve our water sources and implement rigid conservation methods. We should utilize solar and or other source of renewable energy to operate desalinization projects from the oceans. Utilize renewable energy sources to purify and transport the water to its final destination. As world population increases the scarcity of water will become a cause for conflict, unless we take steps now to develop other sources of water for drinking, rainwater harvesting – storm-water and gray-water utilization. Designing of landscaping that uses minimal amount of water.
“With power shortages and a water scarcity a constant threat across the West, it’s time to look at water and energy in a new way,”
To preserve the future generations sustainability, we should look into urban farming – vertical farming. The term “urban farming” may conjure up a community garden where locals grow a few heads of lettuce. But some academics envision something quite different for the increasingly hungry world of the 21st century: a vertical farm that will do for agriculture what the skyscraper did for office space. Greenhouse giant: By stacking floors full of produce, a vertical farm could rake in $18 million a year.

PS.

Hydro dynamics: forget oil. Sharing freshwater equitably poses political conundrums as explosive and far-reaching as global climate change.
Quoted from other sources
Anyone who has ever stood on a beach and looked out into the vast expanse of an ocean knows that there is a lot of water on this planet. In fact, 70 percent of the Earth’s surface is covered by water. It may seem like water is all around us, but safe, clean, reliable drinking water is not a cease¬less resource. The problems facing drinking water range from failing infrastructure, to climate change, to insufficient supplies.

Personal Conservation
Preserving our water resources is not a job for water industry professionals alone. We all have a vested interest in ensuring that water remains safe, af¬fordable and available. Therefore, each individual American has a responsibility to monitor and control their water use, There are many simple ways for people to reduce excess water use, lower water bills and protect the environment, espe¬cially in die spring and summer months, Beyond the standard constraints of watering the lawn only when neces¬sary and washing car wisely by using soap and a bucket of water, some steps include: draining water lines to outside faucets, disconnecting hoses, shutting off outdoor water sources during cold weather and running a small trickle of water on whiter nights to prevent pipe from freezing.
Conclusion
Water supply management is an issue that affects us all. It may not be apparent to every citizen today, but with climate change and population shifts transforming the United States, it soon will be. Effective solutions need to be put into place today before we are faced with a water crisis. A focus on careful planning, treatments, innova¬tions and conservation measures will help to create stability for long-term water management. Commitment to keeping water at the top of the list for communities and citizens will better prepare us for whatever the future of water holds.

WATER!
The indispensable source of life-without water there would be no industry, no agriculture and, most importantly of all, no life. In dry parts of the world this essential commodity is even more precious. Almost all human actions involve water from taking a shower to reading a newspaper to driving a car or simply eating a sandwich - almost everything we do or touch is somehow related to this precious treasure. We ask that you stop and think how you use water and what you can do to conserve this essential natural resource.
*Water, beliefs and customs,
*Water as a vehicle of the economy,
*Water, source of art and life, irrigation and cultivation.
The people have decided to act to try and develop a real awareness program on the theme of water preservation and distribution in an attempt to help maintain the original purity of rivers and streams.
In many parts of the world water sources and wells are not equally distributed. Water as a source of life can also be at the source of conflict.
Whether we live in India, Iceland or the Atlas… we have always tried to trap and tame water. Dams, pumps, canals, water treatment centers; there are so many different ways to exploit this resource that we often forget how fragile this unique and essential treasure actually is.
Unfortunately, many of the things we do every day can harm our water. That’s why all people and government should be working with municipalities, farmers, business leaders and developers just like you to take action to protect our water and clean it up.
Small changes can make a big difference. This guide outlines practical things we can all do to preserve and protect our water. We all need to be part of the solution.
Concentrated Solar Power, which requires no solar panels at all. It works by concentrating sunlight onto a small pipe using cheap parabolic reflectors. The pipe contains a liquid that’s heated to very high temperatures by the sun and drives a steam boiler that rotates a turbine to generate electricity (much like nuclear power plants, but without the nuclear waste). It’s cheap, low-tech, and far more affordable than solar power. Plus, it can be built in practically any desert, so it doesn’t take up valuable land. As another bonus, when CSP operations are built near the ocean, they can desalinate ocean water as a side effect, providing fresh water for irrigation to grow food. This is the only renewable energy technology I know of that can produce cheap energy, fresh water and crop irrigation all at the same time. Plus, it has no emissions, no toxic chemicals, no nuclear waste and very little environmental impact..
“You can’t escape the responsibility of tomorrow by evading it today” - Abraham Lincoln said it.
“That man is richest whose pleasures are the cheapest” – Henry David Thoreau.
“To waste, to destroy, our natural resources, to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed” – Theodore Roosevelt.
“When the ‘study of the household’ (ecology) and the ‘management of the household’ (economics) can be merged, and when ethics can be extended to include ‘environmental’ as well as human values, then we can be optimistic about the future of mankind. Accordingly, bringing together these three E’s is the ultimate holism and the great challenge for our future” – Eugene Odum.

“Can the energy crises be overcome?” – I say yes!

I think that the public, the government and corporate America should treat these energy crises as a danger to our way of life.

During World War II, the America we know unified in a common cause. Everyone rolled their sleeves to chip in and Americans produced an enormous amount of hardware for the war effort. “I see a solution within 36 months”.

If we as a nation can really appreciate and understand the severity and enormity of the energy crises, the catastrophic impact on our economic stability and civilization,
we must unite and do whatever is necessary to produce other forms of energy and overcome this energy and economic crises “by putting all politics and egos aside and look for the good of our nation”.
