Here's one for the Weird File. A Japanese company uses a unique marketing tool that you just have to see to believe.

Brought to you by the same people who do those odd anime toons on Saturday, this has got to be a hot seller. I just don't think it will fly here in the Midwest. (What with all the flap over Victoria's Secret window displays and all.)

Fellow hacks, can we get this into a political campaign office somehow? I mean stress balls are OK, Maalox is a given, but putting one of these things in the Chief Strategerist's office would be cool.

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 them 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 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:

Mirrors concentrate solar energy on a Tower. At the focus point the temperature is hot enough to melt steel. The concentrated heat from the sun can be used 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.

Obama supporters, hold onto that HOPE Obama's selling because that's all he's GOT when it comes to getting those CHANGES Made.

Obama claims 7 years experience in the Illinois legislature - Working Across the Aisles, Bringing people together to get good CHANGES passed -as exemplified by 26 good bills with his name on them.

A Chicago reporter says all 26 bills were passed in ONE Year.

But what’s interesting, and almost never discussed, is that he built his entire legislative record in Illinois in a single year.

Republicans controlled the Illinois General Assembly for six years of Obama’s seven-year tenure.

Then Emil Jones Jr. (became the Senate Majority leader), He became Obama’s kingmaker.

Jones appointed Obama sponsor of virtually every high-profile piece of legislation, angering many rank-and-file state legislators who had more seniority than Obama and had spent years championing the bills.

During his seventh year in the state Senate, Obama ... sponsored a whopping 26 bills including many he now cites in his presidential campaign when attacked as inexperienced.
