Rightful Place

The state of our economy calls for action: bold and swift. And we will act not only to create new jobs but to lay a new foundation for growth.

We will build the roads and bridges, the electric grids and digital lines that feed our commerce and bind us together. We will restore science to its rightful place and wield technology's wonders to raise health care's quality and lower its costs. We will harness the sun and the winds and the soil to fuel our cars and run our factories. And we will transform our schools and colleges and universities to meet the demands of a new age.

All this we can do. All this we will do. – President Barack Obama, January 20, 2009.


  1. Actually I am somewhat concerned with some points in this speech (I read the transcript, way more efficient than listening). An example from the above quotation: "... the soil ... our cars" means he intends to emphasize biofuel, which is known to be unfeasible with current and non long term foreseeable technology (bad energy/area ratio, competes with growing crops for food).

  2. yea, but secularist jesus is hooking scientists up with the moola, so we have to be reverential.
