    Government never met a tax it did not like, making it all the more reasonable to conclude that they never really go away.

    That is what OPEC hopes and prays to Allah for but they may be in for a surprise. Even if shale oil shuts down for a while the infrastructure is there and they can start up again as oil prices rise. OPEC is out of the drivers seat, Drill baby drill.

    Well, drilling for oil is not a political decision at all... its a business decision.

    Yes. But what is being discussed here was the foolishness of those politicians who denounced the idea of increasing US oil production. They were wrong then, have been proven wrong now, and it is silly to defend their position.

    OPEC will be fine.. and their target is not the US shale producers, its Russia and Iran and ISIS.

    Most politicians are pretty foolish and generally shoot off their mouths in ignorance.. For the Dems to mock "drill baby drill" is just about as stupid as blaming Obama for high prices at the pump.
