A happy, happy day in Houston
First Exxon releases a report saying energy consumption will rise by 50% in the next few years, then yesterday I read a report that projects $60 a barrel oil in the next few weeks with $100 a barrel oil looming on the horizon, and then CNNFN.COM releases a report saying gas will rise another $.25 in the next week or so. Ah yes, there is only one city it the US where that is good news. Business is very, very good here, my friends.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
