    That's what many observers said ten years ago.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Back in my younger days, in the 60's, Popular Science said that nuclear power would be too cheap to meter. Later on, they said fusion power was just around the corner. They said that the aircar would be the answer to traffic jams.
    some of these ideas are not as practical as they seem...
    and some of the naysayers are right....

    So it would be a win/win then. Even if all vehicles could be electric I am for getting us of foreign oil. I would prefer Solar or hydro or even wind but at this point am willing to conceder Nuclear.

    Let's start drilling our own oil, until the rest of those options can be brought on line. Just imagine all the jobs created and saved!

    We have been drilling our own oil for the last hundred years. There are over a thousand rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. US oil companies have cut back drilling since demand has dropped. Just how are you going to get them to drill more? Government takeover?

    Stop scaring the **** out of them with punitive taxes. Insure the entire private sector that there won't be a cap-n-trade. Allow the private sector to fix the economy and stop thinking that the government can do it alone.

    BTW, there aren't thousands of rigs in the gulf.

    We can't drill ourselves to independence. I wish it was that simple...

    The oil industry is one of the most subsidized industries there is.

    No, we can't, but we can use oil and natural gas to fill the gap that lies between us and energy independence and create some jobs in the process. I can't imagine why anyone wouldn't want either of those outcomes.
