    I don't think anyone was surprised you are unaware that big oil was kicked out or Iraq when they nationalized their oil 40 years ago. It took an invasion/occupation/regime change to accomplish getting them back in.

    I just realized that Fox News not only sells lies, they also sell passion for the re-telling of lies.

    Look at how the Foxies and Far-righties cling to the bullcrap like honey flavored gold.

If we haven't figured something better than oil in 10 years then there will be something terribly wrong.

    I think you have me confused.

    We have the one term Marxist president Barrack Hussein Obama's very own words to consider. He said he was going to fundamentally transform America.

    Yes. I believe that is his intention.

This is something the American president has virtually no control over.

    Incidentally, the "drill baby, drill" crowd should take steps to learn more about the math behind the idea. Then they'll realize just how stupid it sounds when presented as this magical solution to rising gas prices. We can't drill our way to lower gas prices.
    So do you hold the counter-intuitive position that having more of something is worse than having less of something? Do you believe that if we produced half of the petroleum we need each day within the US it would make us worse off?

    Do you believe that the one term Marxist president Barrack Hussein Obama's extra-constitutional oppressive, anti-fossil fuel stance is increasing energy availability?

    Are you arguing that we should all switch to coal-powered cars then?

    That is not what the graph shows. In the 1980s we were producing 9 million barrels per day. It looks likw about 5.5 million barrels today.

    For real? Have a look at this...

    "Volts are being sold as quickly as they arrive," a GM spokesperson added. "We remain on target to sell every one of the 10,000 units we will build this year for U.S. consumers. Demand continues to significantly outstrip supply, [and] we expect demand to exceed supply for most, if not all, of the 2012 model year."


    Chevy Volt sales:*What's the real story?
    No doubt the increased demand is why Government Motors is closing the line and laying off the workers.

    I love propaganda. Don't you?

    Hmmmm....every years gas prices have been rising, and every year less is produced. Every year we pay a little More at the pump, and every year there seems to be something happening in the middle east.


    Yeah....The President of the United States is responsible for these things...Dayum, he deserves Kudos just for bein' such a Bad Ass.
