    I agree/ Both of these would create jobs and lower our energy costs. Nuclear is clean energy and although they claim nothing is off the table...its's off the table.

    I agree.....Good post.

    The theories posted against drilling and saving our reserves for the future are the antiquated leftist points of view that have gotten us to this point. The EPA needs to be neutered as mentioned in another thread as it's being used to circumvent Congress. Our petrochemical industry is being forced out of business by unfair regulation and a near impossible permitting system the national media refuses to report on.

    It must be relative to money in some way. What would you rather have if you were selling oil $90/barrel or $30/barrel? Who has the balls or ability to stop this? I dont believe we will ever run out of oil. Technology improvements will always find more or alternative ways of extracting, at the same time alternative energy sources will continue to be presented.

    50 yrs. ago, US policy was to use up the oil closest to the Kremlin first. That is no longer good policy.
    Foreign oil is costing $ NOW, we are fighting wars NOW. Sending all our cash to countries that hate us. Sending our boys to die, for what? So libs can pat themselves on the back cuz they stopped an oil well?
    If you had $10 million buried in your back yard, would you dig it up? Or would you say, "oh no, my rose bushes are in the way. Bwaaa, my poor fockin rose bushes!"

    BTW, I do NOT say this will affect short term prices at the pump.

    Can someone please explain to me why many of the same people who claim we need to push for new energy sources are the same ones saying we need to conserve our oil reserves for the future??????? Sounds contradictary to me.....

    Running out of oil prior to developing alternatives for future use is akin to declaring we are going to pump the oceans dry.......In reality, it makes no sense. Y'all think back in 1600 and 1700 they worried about running out of oats and hay.

    Absolutely right. The same people who can't stand to use oil want to save it for the future. WTF, will they be oil friendly 30 yrs. from now?

    There is defiantly some kind of game going on and i bet it has something to do with the financial hole the government has dug and the fact that it mght take 5-10 years to increase our own oil production level to a point where it will do any good.

    The $400 bil we spend on importing oil every year (same as exporting cash) is just gone money......as opposed to drill our own, and the money it generates
    benefits all of us.

    And i am thinking that within 20 years half the cars on the road wouldn't run
    on gas anyway.

    Yooooo!

    WASHINGTON – In a sharp challenge to the Obama administration, House Republicans intend to unveil legislation Wednesday to ban the Environmental Protection Agency from regulating greenhouse gases under the Clean Air Act and expect to advance the bill quickly, officials disclosed Tuesday night.
    The officials said the bill would nullify all of the steps the EPA has taken to date on the issue, including a threshold finding that greenhouse gases constitute a danger to the public health and welfare.
    In addition, it seeks to strip the agency of its authority to use the law in any future attempts to crack down on the emissions from factories, utilities and other stationary sources.
    Many [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]scientists[/COLOR][/COLOR] say that carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping pollution contribute to global warming, and attempts at regulating them is a major priority for President Barack Obama as well as environmentalists.







    Critics (aka democraps)argue the evidence is thin and that new rules will drive up the cost of business and cause the loss of [COLOR=blue ! important][COLOR=blue ! important]jobs[/COLOR][/COLOR].


    The officials who described the GOP plans did so on condition of anonymity, saying they were not authorized to pre-empt the release of a draft measure prepared by the Energy and Commerce Committee, chaired by Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan.

    Great call OT! It don't look like anybody is going to get away with any of that circumcising any more!

    What would that be? "Donk"? What?

    Is "Kenyan" racist? Or maybe "monkey". That's ridiculous!

    It seems someone hasn't caught up with the fact State Governments are not being allowed to control their own affairs.....Poor fella's not paying attention to the outside of his litle spot in the world or something to that effect.
