    Well done! Informative, clever, can’t wait to see more.

    So apparently at least we have a concrete promise?

    I’m sorry that our American bureaucracy is so ridiculously sluggish and gets nothing done due to the same dissent that we all laud because we want so badly to believe that the system of checks and balances that our nation is founded on is the best system possible 😦 Let’s set fire to the Senate, leave a butt-end of the House to give the general populace an impression of representative government, and institute a benign dictatorship 🙂

    It’s a start, an hopefully he can sell the Senate on it after the negotiations. We’ll have some posts up about it after the holiday.

    I share your frustration, though the carbon emissions from burning down the Senate building might not be worth it… Seriously though, I’m not sure the issue is so much the checks-and-balances framework so much as the sheer extent to which our elected officials are indebted to industry lobbyists. If we had campaign finance reform, we might actually have a government that does what’s best for us, instead of the best government money can buy.

    And now I must shut down my computer, stop sucking energy from Central Hudson’s coal burning, Appalachian-mountain-destroying grid, and go enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. Happy Thanksgiving and we’ll talk more when we’re back.

    Would it help if we convinced the industry that going green is actually beneficial for them? Not as lasting a solution as campaign finance reform, but also something important for the environmental movement.
