Caesar Obammus took the airwaves over the weekend to once again mislead the American people. This is standard operating procedure for Obama. Dear Ruler claims that he is going to keep doing everything I can to help you save money on gas, both right now and in the future. Youll believe that line only if you are government educated and dont take the time to do any research yourself. Obama wants to save you money on gas by eventually producing fuel made from algae. Yes, algae. Thats his latest solution to our gas problems one that makes even environmentalists snicker. In the meantime, Dear Ruler will continue to push his green policies and allow the EPA to impose billions, if not trillions, of dollars in regulations, all in the name of going green.
Barack Obama is wrong when he says that we cant just drill our way to lower gas prices. Herein lies the problem --- we have the capability to drill, but that is not what Obama wants. In the mind of a proggie, oil is the heart of capitalism, and capitalism is not what Marxists consider ideal. But if Obama doesnt think that we have the capability to drill domestically and make impact on our oil dependency, maybe he should visit a little town called Williston, North Dakota. This town is on top of the Bakken Shale which, thanks to fracking technology which, according to the Wall Street Journal, will soon be producing more oil than any other region in the United States. In fact, North Dakota is a large reason why Obama can claim that oil production is up since 2008 because North Dakota oil production has tripled since 2007. That has nothing to do with Obamas brilliance and everything to do with technology and the lack of extremely oppressive environmental regulations.
Let me lay this out for you:
1.While president George Bush says he wants to increase drilling and exploration for oil in the United States.
2.The environmental radicals start screaming that it would take five years or more for more drilling to start producing more oil .. and that we need to move to green energy sources.
3.George Bush starts the drilling, granting permits to private land owners especially in North Dakota. He tries to do the same of government lands, but runs into the usual problems with congress and eco-radicals.
4.Sure enough, five years after the drilling permits are issued for these private lands, we see huge spikes in oil production. George Bush is no longer in office however, Barack Obama is.
5.Obama claims credit for the increases in oil production (on private lands) that George Bush enabled by issuing the permits five or more years ago.
6.Meanwhile its back to square one. Obama says that drilling for even more oil would make no sense because it would take five or ten years before these new exploration and drilling programs produced any oil and that we need to move to green energy sources.
Does this make sense to you? Unfortunately the average government educated American cant connect these dots.
If you want to see what happens when severe environmental regulations enter the picture, read this Wall Street Journal article.http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052970203370604577265773038268282.html
It will show you the striking distinction between North Dakota and also energy-rich California. The differences are remarkable, and California only has itself to blame.
If Obama could have it his way, we would be living in a nation-wide version of California. In other words, were screwed.
