That advertisement includes video of a terrorists’ roadside bomb attack on two American soldiers, footage not unlike that often used by Al Qaeda in its recruiting videos, as Democrats seek to exploit the attack to promote Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for president.Airing footage of what's actually happening in Iraq in a political ad? That's so low. And using sound-bite oversimplifications to attack a presidential candidate ... Republicans would never do that, would they?
"Bechtel engineered the oil infrastructure for the Standard Oil Company's burgeoning empire in Saudi Arabia, building pipelines, refineries, highways and ports. When Standard Oil's Aramco partnership in Saudi Arabia was nationalized, Bechtel didn't miss a beat. Instead, the company inaugurated a profitable new relationship with the Saudi royal family and went right to work building airports, military bases and an 850-mile long pipeline from Saudi Arabia to Jordan. "Somewhere along the line, the Bechtels encountered Saudi Arabia's largest construction company, which is also a family-run empire, called Bin Laden Construction. Founded by Osama's father, Mohammed Bin Laden, the Bin Laden firm worked on dozens of joint projects with the Bechtel Corporation, which had already perfected the art of subcontracting out hard labor to low-paid workers in the Third World. Outsourcing is a strategy that Bechtel is using in Iraq today, where 92 percent of its work there is subcontracted out. The Bin Ladens and Bechtels remain close to this day."Is that all? We're just gettin' warmed up. After the jump.

My wife and I have been sharing a Prius since moving to Nashville, but I'm now on the hunt for a sturdy and (quite) affordable diesel pickup truck which I'll convert to veggie oil. The need is twofold: I need wheels, AND the Sylvan Street community garden project is coming to fruition and we need a truck in the family to move tools, lumber, soil, seedlings, etc. (more info at sylvanstreetgarden.org—site maybe not live yet). SO...your help with this would be good for me, good for the air and good for the the community. Any thoughts? Any leads would be very much appreciated.Far be it from me to mock someone's commitment to environmentalism, but when people earnestly trumpet their dedication to living a green life as if it were an emblem of virtue, I want to buy a Hummer, move to a Brentwood subdivision and appreciatively listen to Phil Valentine argue against science. Seriously. Can't we just figure out ways to drive less, recycle more and shut up about it? Maybe it's not that conservatives hate the environment—although that's not a bad point—it's that they understandably loathe people who brag about driving hybrids. OK, I'm done now.
