Obama via satellite..

I had a chance to talk to Sen. Obama via satellite from Indiana today...

Here's a litte bit of what we talked about..

Short term gas price fix- He opposes 3 month gas tax holiday, supports $1000 middle class tax "cut"

Rev. Wright - believes it has hurt him in recent polls but hopes next 4-5 days will get back to the issues and it won't impact him any more.

Easley - wasn't surprised that he endorsed Clinton then went on to praise his own superdelegates (Reps. Watt, Price, Butterfield) and said Americans are more concerned with gas prices.

Missing layup against Hansbrough - upset he missed that moment and said it was really tough to keep up with "thoroughbreds"

You can see the full interview at or check out an hour long edition of Political Connections Friday at 6pm and Sunday at 11am.

Tomorrow I'll be working the late shift to cover the Jefferson-Jackson dinner. I believe we are planning on carrying the Obama, Clinton speeches on News 14 Carolina if you couldn't get a ticket.

Hey North Carolina . . .

Wanna BUY an old obsolete nuclear power plant? YES? OK, then, just VOTE for Obama.

The nuke industry is planning to build 29 new nukes. ONE of them in North Carolina. (Those Plans are Far advanced - with licensing hearings already scheduled for the first few)

(See Map at NY Times LINK: )

Excelon Corp, (largest nuke operator on the planet) headquartered in Illinois, has been one of Obama’s largest contributors ever since he first ran for office.

Obama voted FOR the Cheney Energy Bill of 2005 (H.R. 6) - which ENABLED the nuke industry to start planning to build nukes. (No new nukes have been built for the past 30 years because the banks would not loan the money - too risky.)

The Cheney Energy Bill solved that problem for the nuke industry by GUARANTEEING Taxpayer PAYBACK of any of the nuke loans that default (The Congressional Budget Office rated the risk of default on the nuke loans at 50% or greater).

GE, Westinghouse, CHENEY, the nuke industry are planning to Reap $BILLIONS --- RISK_FREE from building those nukes, AND, $BILLIONS more from the HIGHER Electricity RATES produced by nukes ... for the next
30--40 years.

Here’s the kicker: Obama has been getting BILLIONS of Dollars worth of FREE Sales PROMOTION *Campaign HELP* From: NBC & MSNBC, and CBS … because GE owns NBC/MSNBC and Westinghouse owns CBS.

(If you check on the NY Times MAP you will see that GE & Westinghouse are planning to build the reactors at most of the planned nuke sites.)

Clinton Voted AGAINST the Cheney Energy Bill & says we can consider nuclear in the future only IF they can MAKE IT CHEAPER, and, find a way to dispose of the nuke waste Safely.

That’s the reason WHY the MEDIA has been rabidly PUSHING to SELL YOU an Obama & slamming and smearing the Clintons on TV all day everyday.

COPY & PASTE and Pass the Word to everybody on your email list and to any blogs, TV, Radio, newspapers you can....particularly in all the upcoming PRIMARY States.

p.s. McCain is pro-nuke too & voted FOR the Cheney energy bill. Its the NEXT Big Cheney MONOPOLY POWER ----Energy Ripoff---- just waiting in the wings for Obama OR McCain to get elected.


We Need NEW Clean Renewable CHEAPER DE-Centralized, off the Grid, NON-Monopoly energy.

Does it make a lick of Sense to CONTINUE building an extremely complex, expensive, and dangerous technology -Nuclear power plants ... to SPLIT ATOMS ... to Make STEAM? --- When we can INSTEAD, for example, use newer versions of Solar Power Towers like the one in Odeillo France:

To make STEAM. Simpler, Cheaper, Safer.

All the good Energy Technologies suitable for our future will be starved, neglected, UN-Developed in order to GET the MONEY for Nukes & MAINTAIN the existing Large -Scale MONOPOLY Power Energy Grid - While most of the rest of the world becomes Cleaner, Greener, And RICHER than U.S.

Say NO to NUKES ... go Forward, NOT BACKWARD.
