I would not be surprised in the least to discover that the US had a HUGE untapped, or stored supply of oil. Based on the way our government likes to
operate it would seem logical that we would seek to use up all the oil outside of the US before we began to deplete our untaped or stored resources.
You just hit the nail on the head! At this time in history, OIL (and CREDIT) are the two major pillars of power in the world. Those that control
either or both CONTROL THIS WORLD. This is why Big Oil was allowed to place (and keep) it's people in the White House in 2000. Control of Arab oil
was also the main reason Sept.11 happened (and was allowed to), the end result being an American "Oil Police " presence thruought the middle east
to this day. Certain Saudi's wanted to remove the Royal Family from power because thy were playing ball with the Americans, and selling their
remaining 20 years reserve of crude at the bargain price of eighteen dollars a barrel, causing the country to start borrowing money from the World
Banks to stay afloat! All this while the American oil interests sat on their knownn, (and unannounced)
reserves. Even (retired) Fed Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan was recently quoted as saying ,"EVERYONE knows the WAR (in Iraq) is over (about) oil".
If anyone should know, Don't you think HE WOULD?
What gets me is that there are people who still refuse to believe their elected(?) leaders from 2000 (all having BIG OIL backgrounds) would lie to
them and mislead them IN ANY WAY, when, in spite of the media's control over this country there is SO MUCH EVIDENCE to the contrary... What will it
take for these folk to swallow their pride, admit they have been taken in and help change the direction that this country's been going? For example,
why can't there be a Federal Green energy tax credit for going solar, wind powered ect. like California's been doing? Alternative energy sources
were supposed to be viable when oil reached 50 bucks a barrel, we're WAY past that now. I would luv going off the grid and saving hundreds of dollars
each month, (even after paying for the systems), like they're doing on the left coast. But there is a reason this isn't even DISCUSSED by our
present leadership; they just throw out a "free money $1200 once a lifetime (or every 8 years) BONE out and laugh at how quickly desperate sheeple
accept it in lieu of REAL SOLUTIONS.
It's all about POWER and GREED people, for the FEW. BUT as this power must be WILLINGY GIVEN to the few by the many, it can also be TAKEN AWAY and
placed in the hands of others duly elected BY THE PEOPLE, not chosen by the FEW. Please perform your duty as citizens of this country and VOTE THIS
YEAR, if your'e tired of this mess.
btw Sorry 'bout the rant.......
