Open thread for night owls: Senate panel says no to Buck Rogers for now 20.6.2011 Daily Kos
At the Danger Room, Spencer Ackerman writes Power Down: Senate Zaps Navy’s Superlaser, Railgun : General Atomics Blitzer Railgun The Senate just drove a stake into the Navy’s high-tech heart. The directed energy and electromagnetic weapons intended to protect the surface ships of the future? Terminated. The Free Electron Laser and the Electromagnetic Railgun are experimental weapons that the Navy hope will one day burn missiles careening toward their ships out of the sky and fire bullets at hypersonic speeds at targets thousands of miles away. Neither will be ready until at least the 2020s, the Navy estimates. But the Senate Armed Services Committee has a better delivery date in mind: never. The committee approved its version of the fiscal 2012 defense authorization bill on Friday, priced to move at $664.5 billion, some $6.4 billion less than what the Obama administration wanted. The bill “terminates” the Free Electron Laser and the railgun, a summary released by the committee ...

Schumer Asks Incredulous Schieffer: Hey, GOP, Where Are The Jobs? 20.6.2011 Crooks Liars
Click here to view this media It's rare on the Sunday shows to give a Democrat uninterrupted air time and even rarer still the chance to respond to a Republican's segment on earlier. Watch the shows, most of the time Democrats appear with a Republican at his/her side and almost never given the last word. Which is why Chuck Schumer appearing after Mitch McConnell to refute all the same tired talking points is such a novel experience. Schumer says EXACTLY what every Democrat should say the minute a camera is pointed in their direction: "Hey GOP, where are the jobs???" In the five months of the Republican majority, we've had nary a single jobs bill, but bills reducing regulations on corporations and increasing them on women seeking reproductive health . But that's not what Americans wanted...the Republicans promised jobs and that's what Americans are looking for. The New York Democrat said his colleagues in the Senate would be introducing a number of measures aimed at creating jobs - ...

Think Big: Energy spring is here and you can join the uprising 19.6.2011 Daily Kos
Don't think revolution. Think redirection. An F-16 streaks over burning wells in Kuwait, 1991 It's too simplistic to say that addressing our energy issues will make everything else easy. It's not too simplistic to say that failing to resolve our energy dilemma will make everything else impossible. Developing a new generation of energy sources, and the means to conserve and utilize energy effectively, stands to return the United States to the forefront of world technology. Every time we pull back from this challenge we increase the risk that we will find ourselves in the rearguard of nations still dependent on resources that are ever more expensive to secure. Every delay only entrenches us more deeply as members of the fossil fuel third world. And we do pull back. All too readily, we declare this issue insolvable or too complex to understand. You can bet that more than a few readers turned away as soon as the word "energy" appeared in the title. We do exactly what the people who are ...
