    Re: Obama to Unveil Offshore Oil Drilling Plans

    if president pieface was really serious about solving our ECONOMIC woes he'd stop trying to TAX ENERGY at both ends, production and consumption, and instead mobilize america's mounting anxiety about our dismal prospects---like fdr in ww2, a national mobilization, emergency footing---in the area of POWER PRODUCTION, omnibus approach:

    oil, drilling, offshore, anwr, refineries, electrical power plants, clean coal, natural gas, offshore gas, nukes, alternatives, wind, solar, tidal, butterfly wings, shale, batteries, cars, r&d...

    tax breaks for and public investment in...

    THIS is the WAY out of our current depression

    ENERGY is an assured world CRITICAL need for at least the next century, he who produces POWER will have the entire world at his well grounded feet

    instead cap and trade actively PUNISHES both energy PRODUCTION and CONSUMPTION---in the MIDDLE OF A DEPRESSION

    typical obamite stupidity, agenda driven and extremist

    Sounds like you propose a government takeover of the energy industry. That's mighty socialist of you.

    Yeah, cut the taxes on gas, bringing us cheaper gas which will increase demand and consumption, which leads to supply shortages which leads to higher prices. Yeah, that's the ticket.

    "BP's Statistical Review of World Energy, published yesterday, appears to show that the world still has enough "proven" reserves to provide 40 years of consumption at current rates.

    We have to start cutting back on gas or that 40 year supply will end up being twenty. Conservation is the key for giving us enough time to solve the energy problem. Making gas cheaper is an extemely short sighted solution.

    You can, but it's not wise.

    The GUBMINT already spends every red cent they collect, & then some....
    It really makes me wonder when the whole Ponzi scheme will crater....
    The GUBMINT is doing legally what Bernie Madoff is in jail for.....
