Something To Say-World

Something to Say-World blog is a forum where I can vent and share my strong viewpoints with the world, and get feedback from others, whether they are pro or con, for or against my positions. The main thing is that we engage in a thought provoking discussion with hopes of seeing the world in a more clearer and different light than we did before initiating our intellectual dialogues. __________ MOTTO:Committed To Relentless Pursuit Of Hidden Truths -Globally-

Finally! On September 20th President Bush initiated a "tepid" request for U.S. citizens to curb or cutback on unnecessary/nonessential travels to conserve gas due to fuel shortages caused by Hurricane Rita. As those of you who read my posted blog in August calling for curbing of unnecessary driving, I am certain you will agree the President is correct in issuing his late request. I strongly believe he should have called for a "mandatory/obligatory" and enforced cutback in driving immediately after it was determined that damages incurred by Hurricane Katrina had caused shortages in fuel. I placed the word "tepid" in quotes because that is exactly what his late and weak pronouncement was; as opined by others who are more experts than I am-review the McLaughlin Group's discussion on this same issue, October 1st PBS-TV show. The President encouraged motorists to conserve energy and said he has directed federal agencies to do the same, per Nedra Pickler of the Chicago Sun-Times, Tuesday, September 27, 2005. "If it makes sense for the citizen out there to curtail nonessential travel, it darn sure makes sense for federal employees," the President said. "We can encourage employees to car pool or use mass transit, and shift peak electricty use to off-peak hours. There are ways for federal government to lead when it comes to conservation, "Mr Bush stated. I suppose it's better to be late than never, as the saying goes. But I urge you, Mr President, to come out, immediately, with a much more stronger appeal to the citizenry of this nation to conserve for the better good of our nation as a whole. The time is now, not tomorrow. Again, there is another adage that says: "tomorrow never comes." Meaning simply: "don't put off until tomorrow, what you should and can do today." That sound philosophy applies even to the leader(s) of the greatest nation on this mortal earth. So, lead Mr Presdent, and don't waver and procrastinate!
