Actually, you are on to something. The history of public transportation in Chicago is a sorry condemnation of the private industry model of providing a public utility. When the various competition transit lines made money, they wanted public rights of way. When they could not, they wanted public subsidies (or to be purchased when the concerns failed). GM worked to destroy a well-developed light rail network that served the midwest well...so that new, public transit companies would have to buy their buses and not maintain long lasting streetcars. We have be realistic about how does (and has done) what in our country in order to make real improvements.

"Shame on us. Since the oil embargo of the 70's we have known that we have NO control over imported oil ... USA is made up of millions of "ME" 's. " Good post! As it is, it's not just the politicians at fault, it's most everyone. I won't include myself and others like me who modify their vehicles for improved mileage, experiment with alternatives, who don't wait on the government or on the automakers or big business in-general, etc. At least you can see this and you speak out. Alternatives don't have to cost more or even THAT much more and as a whole they're cheaper over time.

excellent comments about the gulf spill and BP - you did a good job breaking it down and glad to see that someone isn't blaming obama for all of it. my dad used to say that
"hindsight in always a perfect 20-20", keep up the honest commentary.
