Give if you can

I know, everybody wants your money. I don't have any to spare, either. But Move America Forward is so close to having to pull their pro-Bolton ads. Please make a donation, even if it's a small one. They need to raise $24,000 in the next 24 hours. Well, fewer hours now, no doubt.

Surely you don't plan to do nothing!

"Why not? It's usually the best."

Lines from Lawrence of Arabia are always current.

Another burst of common sense from the Cato Institute.
Not only would energy independence not help us, removing ourselves from international energy markets in a quest for independence would make us more vulnerable to supply disruptions for two reasons. First, it’s easier for terrorists to disrupt energy production if the sources of supply are geographically concentrated rather than dispersed. Second, if a domestic disruption were to occur and a trading infrastructure were not in place, we would not be able to avail ourselves easily of supplies elsewhere.
The bottom line? We don't need an energy bill.
