We should have been doing lots of things for the past 30+ years to get rid of our foreign oil dependence. But we didn't. With either a Democrat or Republican president we did nothing. Now we're getting fucked.
It's all about the US Dollar. The buck is weak compared to other currencies. Oil gets traded in Dollars. Speculators are betting that the dollar will get weaker and the price of oil will go up so they bid on a price they want to lock into.
It's been said that if we drill ANWR now we won't see relief for maybe ten years. OK, maybe. But what it will do is relieve some of the pressure on the dollar so that speculation prices will start to lower to a reasonable amount.
You see, if it shows that we won't NEED as much foreign oil and therefore won't be BUYING as much, the price of oil on the world market will stabilize. The Saudi's, Venezuela and others that are squeezing our balls will see their shares drop so they'll have to accommodate to a reasonable pricing.
In the meantime instead of bitchin' that we've done nothing about alternative energy, we should be pushing both the short term plan (our own oil) and the long term goal of energy independence via alternative energy.
Now someone get me a drink and a Motrin please. I gotta headache from thinkin' about this shit that everyone yells and bitches about but doesn't want a real world, real life answer to.
Instead of that fantasy of instant "green" energy.
Hey Al Gore, do the rest of us a favor and at least try to live up to what you preach. Try and stay off the jet for a week, OK?

This Global Warming Nonsense, when does it end?
Texas Representative Ted Poe has hit the nail right on it's head.
In the name of "saving the planet", liberal/socialists are forcing the use of mercury filled lightbulbs.
Yes, they do save energy but at what cost?
Are we going to be required to dispose of these as we do with our old paints and other household chemicals?
Are we going to be charged a fee/tax on the disposal?
And what about all the jobs lost by the companies who manufacture the old incandesant light bulbs? I know a good amount of them are made in other countries too but many are made here in America as well.
I'm not a scientist but from my own reading and research our Sun has a much more massive effect on the Earths atmosphere than anything man is doing now. Outside of an all out nuclear war poisoning our plantet, we are having little or no effect on the CO2 content of our atmosphere.
I've not seen any conclusive proof of this so-called man made global climate change. I put the Al Gores and the Hollywood "Elite" into the same category as the 9-11 Truth movement.

Two weeks ago, he blew himself up in Iraq, brutally murdering seven people.
How did he get out of his prison cell at Gitmo? Easy. His U.S.-based lawyers walked him out the front door!
That despite strong arguments from U.S. counterterrorism analysts arguing that al-Ajmi should under no circumstances be freed since...
-He deserted from the Kuwaiti army to participate in jihad in Afghanistan
-The Taliban supplied him with arms, including grenades
-He admitted fighting with the Taliban, including engaging in two or three firefights
-He was captured by coalition forces in the Tora Bora region, an area thought to be a hideout of Osama bin Laden
-Upon his arrival at Gitmo, he demonstrated "aggressive" behavior
-And based on a review of classified and unclassified documents, al-Ajmi was declared a threat to the U.S. and its allies.
But after Al-Ajmi's lawyers denied all the charges, the U.S. government folded and sent him back home to Kuwait.
Of course, now his family refers to him as "The Martyr Abdullah".
Nevertheless, the international community is clamoring for us to close down Gitmo, Senators Obama, Clinton and McCain are all desperate for us to close Gitmo, and even President Bush wants to see Gitmo closed.
And it looks like they're going to get their wish. Just this week, the U.S. released three MORE Guantanamo detainees, including Sami al-Haj, a suspected courier for Al Qaeda.
Terrifying? Oh yes. Surprising? Sadly, no.

Thomas Paine said the following words and there is no better time to remember them but now:
"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman."
"Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... Horrid mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.”
"What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly; it is dearness only that gives everything its value."
"When men yield up the privilege of thinking, the last shadow of liberty quits the horizon."
A lot of things are being thrown at Americans now and more are coming in the following weeks preceding the National Election. There are groups of people who would have America give up it's sovereignty to the U.N. and other world bodies. We must not allow this to happen.
We hear daily from the media all the bad news about this country. Today there was a "major" report that employment (new jobs) have fallen over the previous months. But next week, if you listen hard, there will be a report that new hires have risen over last month.
Just remember to try and keep things in perspective.
Things are not as bad as you are led to believe.
