God bless our military servicemen. They fight for our freedoms in foreign wars and they fight for our energy future here at home. Makes you wonder what the hell the rest of us are doing to make this a better world.

..."if wind requires a subsidy, it tells us it costs more than it's value" said David Kreutzer, an energy fellow at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank" I think Mr. Kreutzer said it best and we need to end ALL subsidies to the gas and oil industries as well.

The right wing Heritage Foundation guy said that you can build all the wind farms you want but it won't affect our oil consumption. True, if we continue to use nothing but gas hog cars. Try pairing those wind farms with electric vehicles ! NOW you have a winner. My all-electric Porsche is fantastic to drive, uses American wind-power electricity which costs only 75 cents per gallon equivalent. And I get wolf whistle from ladies. Dig it !!
