How is that Green Energy Savings at the Pump Treating You? - Page 2
Basic economics dictates you can't force something down our collective throat. If there is a market then the people will flock. It is that simple. As for my opinion I say open the USA to oil exploration as we know we sit on more oil than anyplace on the planet. At least 100 years worth according to the US Govt. Why not use it? Oh that is right, we do not want to offend a few bugs or bug lovers. That is not a true argument as with the technology we have today the process is cleaner than me pumping gas.
I recall the year 2008 and the media was in a frenzy over gas prices. Day and night we heard that Halliburton owned Bush. Yet Bush left office and the National average for gas was $1.81 per. We will be above $4.00 per by next week and I have heard nary a peep. Well actually Jay Carney who is the paid spinner for the President stated just today that there is "no magic solution" to gas prices. The man can't be serious. But of course he wrote for Time magazine which tells me he knows little of economics. But he sure is for green subsidies. I guess that is what you learn in journalism school. Not reporting news, but policy agendas to get you a premium job as a paid hack.
But why the howls against Bush and his oil buddies and not mouses whisper over the current price of oil under Obama. I know conclusively they are his big offensive line. They will block for him and screw the poor who are hit hardest by $4 a gallon fuel. As long as the Hollywood set is happy, so is the President.
But finally the voices are being heard as the citizenry is more engaged and yes more angry. It hurts in the pocketbook. The media has no choice but to respond and as is their pattern they are using shall I say excuses such as the exogenous events in Iran as to deflect blame from their preferred leaders. If only they offered the same considerations to Mr. Bush as opposed to outright accusations of collusion. These lame attempts will not stand the light of day and the pain is yet to be felt as we approach the heavy driving season of Memorial Day.Continued on the next page
