SOW: LIVE Energy Town Hall - Watch It Tonight!

Watch The Town Hall right here at The Liberal Lunch Live Tonight at 8PM/7PM CT

As a follow up to my HuffPo entry yesterday, President Obama: Cheap Oil = Cheap Excuses, I ask you to join us tonight for a special Live streaming town hall panel at 8 PM ET / 7 PM CST on the topic of energy with Boone Pickens (Oil Tycoon & Founder, BP Capital Management), James Woolsey (Former CIA Director), Bob Deans (Associate Director of Communications – Natural Resources Defense Council) and Sen. Tom Coburn (R-OK). The dual crisis in Japan and the Mideast has made it clear to that Washington has failed for decades to set energy policy right and it is now up to us, the American People, to lead a discussion on the importance of energy independence in America.
I, for one, am deeply concerned about not only our future energy sources but also our current dependence on oil and nuclear energy, both of which have a proven record of climate destruction and little concern for human safety. I will be watching this town hall tonight, and I hope you will join.

Whereas the sentiment, ‘In God We Trust’, has been an integral part of United States society since its founding;

Hypocrite Judson Philips Votes Plutocracy

Tea Party Nation President Judson Phillips said denying the right to vote to those who do not own property "makes a lot of sense" during a radio program.

"The Founding Fathers originally said, they put certain restrictions on who gets the right to vote," Phillips said. "It wasn't you were just a citizen and you got to vote."

"Some of the restrictions, you know, you obviously would not think about today," he continued. "But one of those was you had to be a property owner. And that makes a lot of sense, because if you’re a property owner you actually have a vested stake in the community."

"If you're not a property owner, you know, I'm sorry but property owners have a little bit more of a vested interest in the community than non-property owners."
