Arm Bands and the Culture of Fear
There was one chilling aspect of the Grassroots Candidate debate in Paducah Tilghman High School, Paducah, Kentucky on February 13, 2010. It was coming face to face with a political armband at a political rally.

The Iceman Cometh.
Washington is finally waking up to Minority Leader McConnell.
The Iceman Cometh.
"The blizzard had paralyzed Washington. So it was an apt day for a chat (by phone) with Sen.

Editor's Note: Sen. Evan Bayh announced Monday that he is leaving Congress.

Environmental Legislation - busy, busy, busy
King Coal's subjects in the KY House are on the job
Environmental Legislation - busy, busy, busy

UPDATE 2/18/10 -
HB 409, the bill to let trucks block the highway, was withdrawn by sponsor Rep. Ancel Smith. He didn't realize it would apply to coal trucks. (Really?)
HB 213, allowing eminent domain for co2 lines passed the House and is on its way to the Senate.

Jim Gooch, Rocky Adkins and coal industry legislators have been very busy boys this session. Among the gems they've introduced -
HB 213 allows eminent domain for carbon dioxide transmission lines and create a 50 million dollar threshold to qualify for energy independence initiative funding. (So - did you really need to live where they want to run a pipe?)
HCR 84  to create a caucus to support coal (geez, I thought we had one called the House of Representatives)
HB 132 that will urge Congress to suspend EPA enforcement of greenhouse gas emissions  ('cause it's snowed meaning there ain't no such thing as climate change.)
and HB 409 that lets coal trucks block public roads for 60 minutes or if they purchase a permit they can block the road up to 4 hours. (Were you really planning on going somewhere on that two lane road - like maybe the emergency room?)
Here's the list of the bills and their sponsors. Thank them when you see them.
