T. Boone Pickens Is Confused by What Direction the White House Wants to Take on Energy

August 24, 2012 | About:

A couple of videos with T. Boone, who at 84 is a marvel:

- The details of the Pickens Plan have not changed since he brought the idea forward four years ago.

- He has had no results so far despite his relentless efforts.

- The plan is very simple, “Get on Your Own Resources.” Every country in the world that is energy self-sufficient is doing very well.

- Government can help speed this plan along, but eventually even without the government this will happen.

- Trying to get something done in Washington is virtually impossible.

- At 84 years old Pickens doesn’t have time to wait for the politicians .

I'm considering starting a new exercise activity that utilizes a new, innovative technique called "muscle confusion". Perhaps the White House is also using a form of muscle confusion, possibly called "idea confusion", to come up with better outcomes. Just a thought.
