>the paris plan.

>”Barack wants to focus on new technologies to cut foreign-oil dependency, and McCain wants offshore drilling. Well, why don’t we do a hybrid of both candidates’ ideas? We can do limited offshore drilling with strict environmental oversight, while creating tax incentives to get Detroit making hybrid and electric cars. That way, the offshore drilling carries us until the new technologies kick in, which will then create new jobs and energy independence. Energy crisis solved.”

-Paris Hilton

that’s hot.

i think we’re probably closer to electric cars than we are to off-shore oil though. which means that we’re spending extra money on two methods to create energy independence. that doesn’t mean i don’t support her idea still.

here’s what i wish was added though: nuclear power plants. mccain mentioned them last night in his RNC speech, and that excited me. i guess in a moneyless world having all three of these things sounds great, but hello taxes. it’s doubtful we’d be able to do all three at once – which would lead me to support nuclear plants and electric vehicles, but not off-shore drilling.

otherwise the RNC came across rather hokey and uncomfortable for me. mostly due to the few fanatic Republicans at the convention who come across somewhat similar to Phelps picketers. okay, maybe not that extreme, but almost that weird. but not nearly as weird as the woman that led the DNC Roll Call. she’s gotta be a half-troll.


One thought on “>the paris plan.”

  1. >It’s about freakin time we built some nuclear power plants in this country. The last time someone ordered a new nuclear power plant in the U.S.? 1973. Yep. 35 years ago. People here have an irrational fear of nuclear power.
