Looks like Congress is voting on my compromise for an energy idea. Drill and use the proceeds for alternative energy investments. This will probably pass the Senate by stall in the House because of Nancy "Midget" Pelosi. (Seriously, she's a midge. My sister worked in Congress for a short while and saw Pelosi take her heels off and shrink by a full foot in height.) I'm personally excited about opening up oil shale in the Rocky Mountain states and the nuclear proposals as well as the funding of alternative energy.
This is good. This is a step. Maybe it will get passed. We can only hope.
