    No, going green is good as long as we aren't destroyed in the process. I think we can walk and chew gum at the same time.
    Drill here drill now while we are working on alternatives. Also get serious about converting vehicles to natural gas. We have over a hundred years worth. I think we can perfect a battery by then.

    we have lots of oil, but much of it is hard oil, hard to get, hard to refine, thus expensive....

    Utahbill never has anything good to say about the great lone star state. I don't think I have anything to do with his opinion.

    I don't like Obama's agenda. We will eventually get to cleaner, greener energy. We don't have to be turned into a third world country to get there.
    We have plenty of oil and natural gas if we were allowed to get to it.

    That was in reference to public sector jobs. You know, the ones we have because our government has grown way too large. Public workers out number the private sector workers now. That's disgusting in a free country.

    How? Because their 30 year old reactors that should have been upgraded were hit with one of those once in a lifetime type earthquakes?

    Anyway, it seems you think they're to low, what do propose then? Raise gas prices, and/or taxes?

    no, it isn't just you....
    I lived in TX from age 1.5 to 18.5, so I have SOME knowledge of the place and the people.
    And, all of my siblings are in East Texas except one in Louisiana...same difference...
    add in the humidity, and the bugs, and who in their right mind lives there?
