    Default Intersesting, comparison of "Oil and Gas" States..

    This is interesting.

    The 5 States with Highest known reserves.
    CA sticks out like a sore thumb in nearly every comparative category with the other States.

    Why is that?
    Looking for opinions of the mob here.

    Obviously population, illegals, etc. are going to "juke" the stats somewhat, but what other reasons do you think makes CA fail in the different comparisons?

    Bottom Line - The reason it's called Texas Tea: Most oil-rich states

    I have thought about this a lot and it's time somebody said it. The problem with Ca is..... it's run by a bunch of dumb fuck Liberals! There, now it's out in the open for all to see.


    Seriously though, I am born and raised right here in So Cal. I remember surfing at the "cliffs" in HB in the early 70's. I lived 5 miles from the pier in Seal Beach.When you went to the beach you saw those "rocking horse" oil pumps everywhere. You could smell the refineries in Long Beach and Wilmington. Sometimes when you would come out of the water you would have little tar balls all over you and your board. Point is something needed to be done to clean up and protect the coast, as well as other industrial and mining areas in Ca. But instead of fixing problems and using technology to make things better, cleaner, or more efficient, we decide to shut down whole industries.
    Enter the liberal take over of the state of Ca in the mid 70's, enter Jerry Brown and his marry band of clowns. At least as I recall it, this was the beginning of the entitled class of leadership. Jerry Brown, kind of like our President has never worked a day in the private sector in his life. Yet his visions set the stage of what we all are dealing with today. His short sightedness on building the freeway system that we now continually have to add on to because he went against other peoples judgment of building them bigger for the future. We didn't need them that big, why spend all that money when what we need is mass transit. Even then he wanted to see mass transit. Think about the price of land and the openness of So Cal back in the mid 70's in comparison to today. How much easier would it have been to do it right the first time. He started setting up the state employee unions. He partied with rock stars. In short he took a Hollywood, Utopian vision of what Ca could be, and set the wheels in motion for a lot of what we have today. He and many others, like Pelosi, Boxer and Feinstein started attempting to build their vision and forgot all about the working class of Ca. To much Hollywood elite, Big Money types made all the decisions at the expense of the common people who made this their home for years. Instead of fixing problems, they eliminated them. We don't want all those stinky refineries, or all those wells messing up our views. We don't need industrial plants like Kaiser Steel who employed thousands of people with nice paying jobs messing up our air. Shut them down. Then we'll build houses, thousands of houses out in the "burbs". Only problem is there are mining operations and agriculture operations and farms that stink, so shut them down too. Look what they are doing know at the port of Long Beach and the harbor area with the smog restriction they are putting on the trucking industry. They are forcing thousands of small companies out of business, all on bogus science.

    This is getting way to long for me and I'm not sure I'm even addressing the question anymore. I haven't even touched on Affirmative action, or people like Maxine Waters and the poverty pimps turning Ca into the welfare capitol of the nation so I'll shut up for now.

    Ice, I grew up in So. Cal as well. I was down at Huntington in the '70s. With all that's changed in So Cal since those days, I'm glad I left. It'll never be the same. Too many liberals, too many criminals and those that defend them, and too many illegals. We've been living in Utah for the last 10 years. It's a different culture and takes a little getting use to but it's way better then Cal. Cal is becoming a terrible place to raise a family and it's not going to get any better. I will never move back there if I can help it.

    Those little tar balls most likely came from ocean floor fissures, leaching naturally and has nothing to do with drilling or any other manmade causes. Its been said that in the So. Cal area natural leaching amounting to about 100-150 barrels daily with no help from mankind and no amount of law, regulations or wishing from liberals is going to stop it.

    I feel that even with the strain of illegals and population by comparison, the topics covered by Wolfie point to why the State with the 3rd largest reserve of a revenue producing resource FAIL in every category to produce and capitalize from it to it's full potential.

    Again, like in so many other ways, this is a clear example of CA being a microcosm and blueprint for what direction this admin. is attempting to steer the Nation as a whole.

    3rd largest reserves, yet bankrupt and failing.

    I was born in Hollywood! I remember at the beach getting tar on my feet and chewing cigratte butts I found! Which really pissed my mom off... We left to go East. I started 2nd grade in Alexandria,Va. When returning to CA. we stopped in Tucson for the night and stayed! I started 4th grade in Tucson, Az. Still here! ...............I occassionally wonder how life would have turned out had we moved back to Californa? Who knows?

    Thanks for the personal insight.
    Btw, in FL we occasionally had tar on the beach, still happens once in a while.

    Apparently we need some Arab sheiks running the place. Those guys know how to drill for oil and get rich. WTF is so complicated about it!

    Just a glance now and then at how the 4 other States run their business would be a good clue. No need for a Sheik.

    We do not need any Arab to show us how to drill for oil...The US and the English taught them everything they needed to know. Before 1937 they were still riding camels, hearding goats and living in tents.
