    Maybe Obama should give 15% dividends on bonds used to build Algae farms, wind farms, solar farms,...ways to generate pure hydrogen using electricity...AC or DC....or to develop hydrogen on demand for our cars and trucks..or trains...Just how much DC current or AC current is needed to double the mpg of a vehicle..Tripp;e the MPG...could you add another AC alternator, or DC generator to the vehicle....$5.00 a gallon might get that technology going, funded by the public, and watched, to make sure the big oil boys don't buy it and shut it down...We need to get off imported oil....if we grow our oil from Algae, do we have to sell it on the world market??? What about getting cellulose fuel going from switch grass,...Switch grass grows in poor soil, does not need chemicals or a lot of water..like corn...give a 15% dividend on bonds for cellulose development...for domestic use only...is that possible??

    Newt Gingrich called Obama the most dangerous President in history...Newt a PHD in history..forgot he said the same thing about Ronald Reagan...for talking about a nuclear arms reduction treaty with the USSR...or that Newt thought Reagan's foreign policy of arming anybody with weapons to fight our enemies.... was a good idea..Like Reagan making Bin Laden a hero in Afghanistan and leader of Al-Qaeda...and selling WMD's to Saddam in Iraq..like Anthrax, Sarin Gas, Mustard Gas, Botulism, Diluted Agent Orange...All with help of GHBush, Rumsfeld,Cheney and Newt from 1980 to 1989...

    And mental sanitarium occupier Rick Santorum a member of the Jack Abramoff K-Street lobbyist club...Does not understand the separation of church and state...forgets that churches in many states have the same insurance coverage as what Obama wants...and it is still up to the women to decide what they want to do...wants to save some lives but is quick to talk about waging a war with Iran....A country run by a strongly religious leader that thinks he has the right to tell everyone in Iran and in the middle east just how to live their lives based on his religious beliefs....
