Odd collection of thoughts

The old Chinese proverb “may you be blessed to live in interesting times” is real. Global warming is real, and we all know it — yet we don’t change our driving policies, we would never support a gasoline tax or serious mileage targets. We send 150,000  citizens to fight in Iraq, yet most of us can’t even tell you where Iraq is or why we care… Sudan is likely the source of more terrorists, and more people are dying there. But our investment in Sudan is zero…

I’m just curious as to what we are doing in this world, and I’m trying to figure out what I can do that actually matters in the world. Energy choices, p0litical structures, business environments…. there are big issues out there that no one is dealing with. How can any of us change that world?

Dick Cheney claims to be above the law, as a member of the executive branch when it suits his needs or a member of the legislative branch when that fits his needs. Isn’t the opposite true? Can’t people ask for his records as an executive, and subpoena him as a legislator?
