The president issued a call to community service and many have responded. Volunteers have organized thousands of projects throughout the United States, repainting schools, mentoring kids, collecting canned food and donating blood.
Please join with me in promoting community service -

One hundred and seventy-three years ago today, a small force of men stood within the walls of a crumbling stone fort on the outskirts of San Antonio, Texas. They were in their ninth day of siege, and they were exhausted, haggard and disheveled. The cannons of an investing army had pounded their…Continue
It's too soon to judge the current one, but for past presidents, the verdict is in. U.S. News has averaged the results of five polls to make a gallery of the worst chief executives. The years before the Civil War produced an era of failure: Six of seven presidents who served from 1841 to 1861 made the list.…Continue

I have good news to report — last month, many of you submitted stories about being legally required to take money out of your retirement savings accounts that have been devastated by the Wall Street meltdown. I shared your stories with AARP’s lobbying team who have made it a top priority to temporarily halt mandatory…Continue

The price of fuel has dropped. We all know it, I know. I have seen the difference in activity here in the Pickens Plan website. Like I posted earlier. We can not loose momentum if the price goes down! They still have control and we all know we are going to run out of oil if we do not change our ways!
Just because the strings on the pocketbook have been relaxed a little, don't give up or think you have done enough! It will slip right back to worse than we were before! We Can Not… Continue
Hello and thank you to everyone, new members and old, for making some fantastic contributions to the Pickens Plan Community. There has definitely been a whirlwind of activity as we approach the upcoming election.
Just wanted to take a quick moment and share some exciting features and developments.
I would suggest initiating a challenge to achieve a 5 Million member army with a target date of Election Day and 20 Million member army by the New Year. If these numbers can be reached, this nation will be well on its way to achieving energy independence.
1 million is good; do not get me wrong, it is not enough to convince congress or a new administration though. Move with the voice of 20 million strong though and you become a voice to be reckoned with.
