    This is typican instant gratification republican thinking. Live for today, pollute the environment, use up all our resources and don't worry about it. Our kids will solve the problems. 100 years from now we will be riding horses again if we haven't eaten them all.

    Re: Oil rises above $90 amid US crude supply drop

    on the topic of ENERGY, we have fantasies on the one hand

    and raunchy reality on the other

    for example, obama's interview with the sf chron:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlTxGHn4sH4

    we must "do the right thing"

    "under my plan electricty rates would necessarily skyrocket"

    "if someone wants to build a coal power plant they can, it's just that it will bankrupt them"

    with ideologues like this in the white house, how's america ever gonna solve its energy problems

    BAN, baby, BAN!

    Why didn't the republicans do something? They had 6 years of total control. The truth is the oil companies are happy with the way things are. They like shortages and huge profits.
    Using our own reserves up even faster will not solve anything.

    Are you sure you used the correct currency value and converted from liters to gallons properly ??

    By the way, did you go fishing there? I caught two fantastic Pacific Sailfish (9 footers) the last time I was there.
    We were on a cruise, Disney ship, 13 of us.....now we are broke...

    No, no, no. Read it again.

    I don't worry about it because I have full faith in American ingenuity and resolve. We're working on it right now, probably at a level and pace that would dumbfound us both. There's government, then there's what's happening behind government.

    They didn't increase domestic production from '01 to '06, why would they do it if they get into power again?
    US production fell when the GOP was in control. Gas prices skyrocketed and oil company profits soared. Yeah lets get the GOP back into power.

    I have more faith in American people, and the people are awake now, much to the chagrin of both parties. Washington is being scrutinized bigtime by real people, not just a media that has its own skin in the game.

    Just look at this forum. This wasn't happening even in the coffee shops or by the water coolers 15 years ago. We're paying attention now, and there's hell to pay.
