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? Out of the ground just like oil, there is trillions of dollars worth in Afghanistan; the Pentagon says so:

Better look this over good before we jump. Can lithium-ion batteries be recycled? How are lithium-ion batteries to be disposed of? How long are lithium batteries going to last? How many miles? Is there another path we can take to get off oil as soon as possible? Which path is the most ecologically sound? No, we will put profit ahead of all.

I am sick of Resistance from senators bought off by the insurance and pharmaceutical industry’s. Resistance from teabaggers and other pawns who would rather not think for themselves. Get real people we need medical reform that includes a public option. People are dieing because they can’t get proper care every one has a right to good medical care but we won’t get it because there is cruel resistance, profit and greed before compassion; because we are bankrupting our country fighting two overseas wars where people are also dieing and the drug war. so we can’t afford to help our neediest sick and injured people. shame on the resisters shame on the politicians who think more of reelection then of what America needs,shame on the profiteers, shame on the simple-minded nut cases that put their desire to wreck  President Obama ahead of real patriotism.

Rep. Maurice Hinchey (D-NY) claimed on MSNBC this afternoon that the Bush administration purposely let Osama bin Laden get away in 2001 so they could use al-Qaeda as an excuse to invade Iraq.

Hey it worked!; They  have made FOOLS of  us all. I believe  the hand-picked Whitehouse crew accomplished what they wanted; Bush got to be “a war president” and the wars got them the pipeline, Iraq oil, profits for KBR, Halliburton and the rest  of the MIC. We are paying the bill with our young peoples blood. So now almost nine years and thousands of casualties too late here we go listening to these chicken hawks and sending 30.000 more “troops” to do the short work 4.000 marines  were ready to do in 2001.  Remember those “Troops” all have faces, maybe your kid or the paper boy or the pictures in the current high school year book.
I think we better pull every one out now give the people of Afghanistan and Iraq what they need to rebuild there countries as they see fit.
Congress should go ahead with an investigation of the Bush administration. No matter what happens Afghanistan will always be George Bush jr’s war
