Lithium is used for batteries, specialty glass, lubricants, pharmaceuticals and lithium alloys. Lithium ion (Li-ion) batteries have become the rechargeable battery of choice in cell phones, computers, hybrid-electric cars and electric cars. Demand for lithium carbonate is expected to increase four-fold over the next decade as production of lithium-ion battery-powered hybrid-electric and electric cars rises. GM, Ford, Toyota, Dodge, Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Tesla, Saturn and Mercedes-Benz have all announced plans to build Li-ion battery-powered cars and the demand for such vehicles is currently expected to increase five-fold by 2012. Hey this is good news I think; we should receive some kind of stimulus; turn in your old car, get a new electric car and start eliminating our oil addiction. WAIT! Where does lithium come from?

Americans are hated because we support rich people who sell the resources (oil) of their country to America and only the wealthy people of the oil rich country profit the majority poor owners of the oil get nothing our big jet liners suck up most of the oil so they make wonderful targets. We don’t get it,we don’t need body searches at the air ports we need to rethink our foreign policy.

Ripped from rolling stone

I hope I am wrong but this smell’s  like a sell out. It’s not the change Obama promised or I could foresee  in my worst nightmares when I voted for Obama. The  words ” troops”, “surge” That’s Bull Shit we are putting thirty thousand more young men and women not Troops in harm’s way for what President Obama calls a “just war”.  The new boss just like the old boss”…

TIME TO HIT THE STREETS,  DARE TO STRUGGLE DARE TO WIN

…Or is the President being cagey; depending on protests to push a pull out?,  the time is right for marching in the streets  if we want to stop the war
