    One old man. Got your electric car yet or are you just being a little stubborn about holding on to your polluting gas guzzler? Where will all the electricity come from for all the electric cars? Not coal, that's for sure! Nuclear? Nope, too risky-no one wants to live next to a nuke plant. So far wind mills kill birds and cost more than the power they generate! Solar? Maybe but mining and refining all the metals for the batteries pollutes a lot since the sun doesn't shine at night or on cloudy days! Dang! Guess we are stuck with fossil fuels, at least until someone comes up with an affordable alternative! Me, I drive a Ford F150 with pride! I am just glad we are able to use fracking technology in N. Dakota and Texas private land which has kept fuel price lower than Obama was hoping for!

    Sven, please don't let the liars and propagandists of the extreme right fool you. Their distortions are not hard to uncover if you will make an effort.

    Oh, this is just the beginning of what Obama has in store for our nation. Consider his plans regarding our electricity:

    "You know, when I was asked earlier about the issue of coal, uh, you know ā€” Under my plan of a cap and trade system, electricity rates would NECESSARILY SKYROCKET. Even regardless of what I say about whether coal is good or bad. Because Iā€™m capping greenhouse gases, coal power plants, you know, natural gas, you name it ā€” whatever the plants were, whatever the industry was, uh, they would have to retrofit their operations. That will cost money. They will pass that money on to consumers (emphasis mine)." -Barack Obama

    This is also going to have a huge impact on trucking companies who will be forced to replace their fleet of trucks for newer ones. Get ready for food prices, and prices for all other goods and services to go through the roof.

    Our kids are going to have no economic future.
