8-1 Obama Blows Smoke Up Your...Tires
Well, Nancy Pelosi and
her henchmen (& women) pulled up stakes in our nation's capitol
and headed of for parties unknown (whoops, that should read - parts
them out of town for awhile is always a good thing as our remaining freedoms will
remain untrammeled until their return and our incomes will not be taxed any
more. Of course they hit the road without a vote on the
minor issue of re-instituting off-shore drilling or other ways to
increase our independence on foreign oil. Pelosi couldn't risk having
that come to a floor vote because the mood of the American People has
shifted so much she was afraid of a stinging and embarrassing defeat if
the will of the people was honored. (
I love writing about Pelosi because her names' not in my spell checker
and every time it asks me I just say 'Ignore'. If it was only that
Did you know that a group of Republican lawmakers stuck around to
debate the issue and Pelosi
ordered the lights, microphones & cameras turned off
and the chamber doors locked? As of recent reports they
had the doors open and the lights and microphones powered back
up but the issue can't be transmitted to the American people showing a House devoid of Democrats.
Probably becaused if people saw things getting accomplished when the
Democrats weren't around, they might actually wake up and make it a
reality. Naw, that's just silly talk.
Pelosi et. al. would rather feed you the li(n)e that prices have
dropped like a rock the past month because we Americans all did such an
excellent job of driving less and conserving such vast
quantities that we
shifted the WORLD balance to an over-supply of oil.
Apparently China and India also curbed their gluttony for the product
as well so Arab
countries are now awash in oil with no buyers in sight so
they're cutting prices. Yeah, that's what happened.
Well, that plus I know
we all rushed out and checked
the air in our tires to make sure they were properly
inflated and got
tune-ups to assure that our vehicles are running at peak
performance. Because as our erstwhile candidate for President, Barack H
Obama, tells us - those two simple things can save as much oil as we would
gain from new drilling. Hmmm, even by Democratic low-ball
estimates that amounts to a few million barrels a day. Properly
inflated tires could save that much? Puh-leeze. You've gotta love it
when Obama speaks off-the-cuff because he is not as good an extemporaneous
speaker as the media would have you believe. He is prone
to this kind of mis-statement because he IS SIMPLY TOO INEXPERIENCED TO
KNOW THE FACTS.
it be that OPEC producers realized that with this latest ploy they may
have gone too far
and riled up the American hornets nest? That Bush and most
prudent voices are calling for increasing our domestic exploration
& production, reducing our dependence on them, seriously
looking at nuclear, solar & wind alternatives and so they
pulled back. Get the
Americans back in their comfort zone which seems to
currently reside somewhere just south of $4.00/gallon and they'll shut up about
drilling and exploring like we did last time, and the time
before that and... Then they'll start the slow creep until our new
comfort zone becomes $5.00/gallon by this time next year - especially
if Obama becomes Pres and Pelosi & Reid continue their control
Go ahead - tell me this isn't true. I hope you're right and I'm wrong
on this but I don't think so.
