More Energy Stupidity

Could someone please explain to me why we are not going at this hammer and tongs and becoming a net energy exporter?

Meanwhile the current Administration is holding up drilling permits in the Gulf (in defiance of a Federal Court order) and making it very hard to develop any land-based resources by dragging their feet on leases for exploration on Federal land. Then he flies to Brazil to congratulate them on their oil exploration and pledges to buy more from them.

If the USA embarked on a very public, immediate and, aggressive campaign to develop our own resources, the price of energy on the world market would fall overnight as current producers scramble to keep their markets. The boost this would give to our economy would be much greater and more long lasting than any government stimulus plan.

As it stands now, our President has signaled to the world that we are not serious about developing what we have, in fact he is actively hindering that development. He’s basically telling the world to go ahead and take us for everything they can. As they do, we pour more and more dollars into the coffers of regimes who are all to happy to pass that money along to al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah et al.

I have said this many times before. Either he is really this uninformed and has no clue or is fully aware and is acting this way with malicious intent. Neither option is good for the country. 2012 can’t come soon enough.

Making Carter Look Like a Geo-Political Genius

These are the people we are helping to protect in Libya? We might actually start giving them weapons.

How unbelievably stupid are we?

We’re helping al-Qaeda take over another country, this time one with oil and a strategic geographic location. This whole thing just goes from bad to worse with each passing news cycle. I don’t want to hear another word about Bush and his wars. This man and his administration are an absolute foreign policy disaster! Every time I think it can’t get any worse, it does.

Rosalyn must be soooo proud. Jimmy looks like George S. Patton compared to Obama.

 

Look Away George

The PJ Tatler » Obama abdicates commander-in-chief authority, Germans pull forces out of NATO Med operations.

Did he really say that “it is our military that is being volunteered by others to carry out missions that are important not only to us, but are important internationally”

WOW! I thought the Commander in Chief decided when and where our troops were sent into action? I don’t recall where in the Constitution it states that other third parties can volunteer our armed forces for action?

Look away George Washington and Thomas Jefferson, you don’t want see this.

Garth, I love your music but in the words of Laura Ingram, “shut up and sing”.

Do as I Say, Not as I Do

The damning contradictions of Obama’s attack on Libya | Michael Barone | Politics | Washington Examiner.

The Dean of American politics nails it again!

He makes some excellent points in comparing Bush’s actions in 2001 and 2002 with Obama’s statements and actions of 2007 and today.

I’m waiting for all my friends who voted for Obama to denounce his actions like they did with Bush in 2001 and 2002. I’m waiting . . .

crickets chirping

A little consistency would be nice.

 

It’s Bad, But Not as Bad as the Media Would Have You Believe

Here is an excellent blog that’s doing a good job of cutting through the hysteria that has characterized the Media’s reporting on the nuclear crisis at the Fukushima Plant in Japan. Check out the various status updates and the March archive to get a better picture.

Here is another excellent source of information, not colored by a media agenda.

 

More Like the Chevy Dolt

The Detroit News has an interesting piece on Consumer Reports initial take on the Chevy Volt.

CR is not impressed. My brother-in-law was though when he was invited for a test drive at GM’s proving grounds. He mentioned the same things (torque and handling) that CR did as being positives. One afternoon on the test track doesn’t give you a true picture of what life with the vehicle will be like. My brother-in-law is a pretty sharp car guy. I have a feeling that if he had to live with the car day-to-day, he would come to the same conclusions Consumer Reports appears headed towards.

As time goes by, it appears that the Volt is all show and no go. A lot like the current Administration who made such a big deal about the thing.
