Obama to Visit Oklahoma to Talk About Oil Drilling ... by Texas Fred
LINK: http://texasfred.net/archives/15135#more-15135 Obama to Visit Oklahoma to Talk About Oil Drilling. By Texas Fred of the Texas Fred Blog
President Barack Obama will travel to the reddest of red states, Oklahoma, next week to argue yet again that he’s not against oil drilling, no matter what Republicans repeatedly say.
President Barack Obama waves as he boards Air Force One at O’Hare International Airport in Chicago, Friday, March, 16, 2012, before traveling on to Atlanta for another fund-raiser. He plans to travel to Cushing, Okla., just outside Stillwater, next week, where a new pipeline is set for construction by TransCanada, the same company that the administration blocked, at least temporarily, from building the Keystone XL pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast, an administration official said.
Isn’t it amazing how Barack Hussein Obama always wants to talk about things of which he has NO knowledge? The good folks of Oklahoma are NOT going to buy into Obama’s faux words of wisdom, bet on it!
We don’t need no stinkin’ oil, that’s what Barack Hussein Obama says:Forget oil, fuel up with algae. Louisiana and Florida swampland owners are going to make a ton of money I guess.
If you don’t buy into the algae for fuel thing, or any number of other brilliant Obama ideas designed to save the earth from man, you must be a part of‘Flat Earth Society’.
So says the Obamessiah.
I realize that I’m just a redneck, Neanderthal, knuckle dragging blogger from Texas and I don’t know much about the world, or *The BIG Picture* we hear so much about.
I obviously don’t understand the nuance of world government and the way our leaders work to keep this nation safe and solvent, that’s what the U.S. leadership would tell you, but I have got to say, in MY opinion, this story and its premise, and every action that the Obama regime foists off on this nation, is designed to destroy the American economy and to take the United States of America into the abyss of third world chaos.
In the first place; why are we importing oil from Libya? Why do we import oil from Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela? Why are we allowing ourselves to be held hostage by the enemies of this nation? OPEC is NOT our friend, they don’t care if we live or die as long as we keep on pumping BILLIONS of U.S. dollars into their economy.
Yet WE rely on the Muslim world for most of OUR oil. We are held hostage and are subject to any whim or political shift the Arab world wants to force upon us.
It appears that Obama, his fellow Muslims, and the assorted moonbats and tree huggers are good with it too. All I can figure is, these tree hugger types MUST make a lot of money, they don’t seem to care how expensive oil gets and what that expense does to the U.S. financial markets and the manufacturing segment that relies on oil for a lot more than just gasoline.
In that same piece I also pointed out this little tidbit:
New drilling method opens vast oil fields in US
A new drilling technique is opening up vast fields of previously out-of-reach oil in the western United States, helping reverse a two-decade decline in domestic production of crude.
Companies are investing billions of dollars to get at oil deposits scattered across North Dakota, Colorado, Texas and California. By 2015, oil executives and analysts say, the new fields could yield as much as 2 million barrels of oil a day — more than the entire Gulf of Mexico produces now.
This new drilling is expected to raise U.S. production by at least 20 percent over the next five years. And within 10 years, it could help reduce oil imports by more than half, advancing a goal that has long eluded policymakers.
“That’s a significant contribution to energy security,” says Ed Morse, head of commodities research at Credit Suisse.
Wow, we have new and innovative methods of drilling that can open up vast fields of previously out-of-reach oil in the western United States, helping reverse a two-decade decline in domestic production of crude. Isn’t that amazing?
Did anyone think to point this out to Barack Hussein Obama?
Oil Drops as International Reserves Are Tapped
Oil plunged nearly 5 percent Thursday after the International Energy Agency said it will release 60 million barrels of oil from its reserves to make up for a loss of Libyan exports in global oil markets. SOURCE
For those that don’t know, or don’t watch the stock markets as closely as others, the Dow DUMPED 215 points on this news. At last check the Dow was recovering and had regained some of its losses at the time this post was made, but the question is; WHY do we have to tap reserves and why are we still buying oil from OPEC?
We have made OPEC nations RICH with our purchases of oil, and don’t think I blame Obama exclusively, I don’t. This goes back a long time before he came on the scene.
There is one thing that I have known for many years; we have the oil, more than enough oil to keep the USA swimming in oil for many generations to come.
I remember Oklahoma in the 1960’s, we were buying gasoline for .16 per gallon in places, sometimes even cheaper than that if the stations decided to have a little *price war*.
For those too young to remember, at .16 per gallon, you got your windshield washed, your oil and water was checked, your tires were pressure checked with a gauge and your lights were wiped clean. FULL SERVICE at what we called, ‘A Service Station’.
There is only one thing I ever heard Sarah Palin say that I can 100% agree with, and that was her “Drill Baby Drill”.
We are being driven off of a cliff by the most anti-American individual I have ever seen. I am of course referring to Barack Hussein Obama and his dedication to taking America into the abyss of outright socialism. If we continue to allow him to do so, if he is allowed one more term in office, this nation is DONE FOR and the American way of life slips off into the annals of history.
But if America would seat a true Conservative in the White House, true Conservative, not RINOs, in the Senate and House, seat true Conservatives on the SCOTUS and would drill its own oil we could once again be paying less than a dollar a gallon for gasoline and this nation could emerge from the brink of destruction and rise like the Phoenix to a position of world greatness once again.
But hey, what do I know? I’m just a Neanderthal, knuckle dragging, flat earther, redneck, beer swilling blogger from Texas that believes Barack Hussein Obama and his entire regime are the personification of PURE EVIL
