In an unusually personal speech, Reid said, “I will not be lectured
about civility by the junior senator from Pennsylvania who has repeatedly disrespected veterans.”
The Senate energy bill is not an energy policy for
the 21st Century as it missed opportunities to address some of our nation's most pressing energy problems. Even with gas prices
at record highs, the Senate rejected an amendment to increase fuel economy standards, which would have reduced our dependence
on foreign oil and ultimately saved consumers money. Additionally, this bill allows for an invasive inventory of offshore
oil and gas, which could pave the way for drilling off our coasts. While it makes some modest investments in energy efficiency
and clean, renewable energy technologies, like wind and solar, overall the bill falls short of a what is needed for a sustainable
and affordable energy future. League of Conservation Voters Press Release

'The most obvious change must occur within American seminaries,
many of which demonstrate the same brand of cultural liberalism plaguing our secular universities... It is startling that those in the media and academia appear most disturbed by this aberrant behavior, since they have
zealously promoted moral relativism by sanctioning "private" moral matters such as alternative lifestyles. Priests, like all
of us, are affected by culture. When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for
this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the
center of the storm.'
