Each of us have seen the extraordinary media swarm of T. Boone Pickens about his Pickens Plan. He has funded this TV campaign out of his own dollars. That’s significant for me. If you believe in something then spend your damn money on it. It proves you really believe. Don’t just ask others to fund your campaign but get in there and use your own capital. He has, to me, proved sincerity and conviction.
I have visited his site a couple of times. He has a good written plan on the site. His media portion of the site is actually more interesting to me. He has a very detailed video that I’m including below. I thought it was comprehensive.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpQa-ibNOKM
Yes, I know he’s no political progressive. In fact he was one of the people that backed ‘The Swift Boat’ campaign. But here’s my take on America’s biggest problems:
I don’t give a damn who has the best idea. Period. I just don’t care. I care/love America and if T. Boone Pickens can drive the subject, perhaps come up with an actual plan, I’ll embrace his ideas. All I care about is the best ideas and execution. Perhaps T. Boone Pickens will drive the Congress into actually doing something. I don’t think he’s going to give up.
This is just the beginning of my writing on the energy topic.
