    The townhall wasn't open to people yelling out questions. The questions were submitted in written form and West could address them by name. These hecklers were trying to ruin the meeting and West was having none of it. The audience showed their approval by their applause both times people were escorted out.
    The video in context will only help West if he chooses to run.

    I do not mind if she was thrown out for being disruptive, but do you really think she needed to be arrested for that?

    In Cali you can do that now, as natural gas has cleaner emissions. Is it illegal to convert your car in TX?

    You do realize that Peak Oil refers to a halfway point, right? Its not running out anytime soon, there's just not going to be an increase in available supply.

    The oil industry has admitted to the validity of the peak oil concept.

    This and the fact that China is adopting the automobile means the end of CHEAP oil, not any imminent end to the oil supply itself.

    And natural gas energy density is MUCH lower than gasolines, so don't forget to include that in your math.

    Did you watch the video? She was asking for it. No mention of the other heckler being arrested. I guess he went peaceably. People should learn not to get mouthy with the cops because it seldom ends well. However I think that woman wanted to get arrested, so I'm kind of sorry the cops obliged her.

    The leftists at the EPA refused a drilling permit to Shell Oil for the North Slope of Alaska because the ice breaker used in their plan would not cause the air in a Eskimoo village 100 km away to exceed the EPA air quality standards.

    That's right. The impact would be within EPA standards, so they were denied the permit for ALMOST exceeding them. Since Obama has not fired the head of the EPA over this, Obama should be impeached. This is one of those things that are more important that the latest forged birth certificate.
    Wrizzong again.

    Chinas official policy is to use the rest of the worlds resources first, keeping their own in reserve for when the rest of the world starts to fight over the scraps.

    Of course not. I'm just saying we should get serious about using natural gas to fuel our cars. That would be a good investment in my opinion.
    If Ca is way ahead of everyone else in that regard, I guess I found something good about Ca besides the weather.

    Edit: The wack job comment was about those who stand in the way of us drilling for the natural gas.

    She was clearly walking backwards and leaving. She just told the cop not to touch her. At no point was she acting violent or posing a threat, and again, she was clearly leaving. I'm just saying it was borderline.

    I agree, she wasn't posing a threat to the cops. However she was disrespecting them and getting in their faces. She was not leaving peaceably. Then she made sure she was being recorded when they put her in cuffs.

    I really hate the whole, it ain't perfect, so its not worth doing, meme.

    The global population explosion is racing up to bite us in the ass while we wring our hands over manufactured nonsense.

    Americans used to have a "screw it we'll figure out something else" mentality, instead of this "it works now so fight til you win to keep doing it until it blows up in your face" BS that comes out of the conservative propaganda firehose.

    Not attacking you, sorry if it sounds that way. But this is an expensively manufactured lie that I find particularly offensive, so I don't respond well.
