Why do only angry Republicans have any power in their own party? The answer lies in its pivot to the South
A few months back, a day after the Republican Leadership Conference kicked off in New Orleans, Jamelle Bouie wondered in Slate “Why the Republican Party attracts provocateurs, faux martyrs, and grifters in droves?” It’s a great question. Bouie noted the speakers whose presence would raise doubts about any political body that invited them to appear — from the vermiculate gasbag Donald Trump to the hucksters Herman Cain and Sarah Palin. And he provided examples of how the inflamed rhetoric of these figures has become the vernacular of the Republican Party as a whole. But in the end, his answer to his own question seemed disappointingly wan: Salon

Here's the secret in Alabama: If you call it 'economic development' you can get away with anything
Roll out the red carpet for business, Alabama. Or just roll it out for abuse. It was way back in 2010, in Gov. Bob Riley's final hurrah, that the state of Alabama cheered the way it "reformed" Alabama's ethics law. It cut out all sorts of dangerous corruptions. You know, like the way students sometimes gave decent Christmas presents to hard working teachers. Lawmakers – surprise -- did take care of themselves. They made sure they could still wine and dine with lobbyists and the companies that hire them. AL.com

Natural Gas Won't Rescue Humanity from Its Oil Addiction -- It'll Making Things Worse
To stay on top of important articles like these, sign up to receive the latest updates from TomDispatch.com here. Albert Einstein is rumored to have said that one cannot solve a problem with the same thinking that led to it. Yet this is precisely what we are now trying to do with climate change policy. The Obama administration, the Environmental Protection Agency, many environmental groups, and the oil and gas industry all tell us that the way to solve the problem created by fossil fuels is with more fossils fuels. We can do this, they claim, by using more natural gas, which is touted as a “clean” fuel -- even a “ green” fuel. Alternet

Editorial: FL Gov. Scott should come clean about rail project
When a private company contemplates a major transportation investment stretching across 256 miles of Florida railway and dozens of communities, Floridians deserve to know what their governor knows. But vigorous efforts by Gov. Rick Scott and his administration to deflect questions and mislead the public about the state's investment in the success of All Aboard Florida fuels more suspicion about the proposed rail line between Miami and Orlando and distrust of state government. The governor already has a hypocritical record on rail, and he owes Floridians some straight answers. Tampa Bay Times

Study warns U.S. power grid will become too reliant on gas
A study by the energy research firm IHS warns the U.S. power grid stands to become far too reliant on natural gas in the decades ahead, as economic factors and new environmental regulations stand to push out power sources like coal and nuclear. The study comes as new EPA regulations on carbon dioxide stand to dramatically shift the power industry, pushing natural gas and alternative energy sources like solar and wind over coal. “The critical importance of diversity to stability in power supplies and prices is the ‘missing factor’ in much discussion on electricity,” IHS Energy Vice President Lawrence Makovich, the study’s author, said in a statement. “A diversified portfolio of U.S. power supply is fundamental to a properly functioning electricity system.” Dallas Morning News

Desperation sometimes masks itself in acceptance. Such was the case for Takelia Carter of Marion, Ark. For Carter, the mother of six school-age children in a low paying job, desperation was normative existence. This was her life in Crittenden County, Ark., deep in the Delta where unfortunately one in four families lives well below the poverty level.

There are numerous factors driving the new industrial revolution in the South. And it is a revolution, as this manufacturing surge that began in 2007 continues to break records year after year in the total number of large, capital intensive projects. One factor, of course, is that reshoring of facilities back to the U.S. continues to grow each year.
