government regulations surely isn't to blame for the oil not being there. And I'm not sure I can see how allowing foreign-based and domestic oil
companies to freely pollute our land is really in the interest of the US. That's what those pesky regulations DO, you know.
the only reason business and industry and the oil industry leave this country is because of liberal policies.
Funny, but absurd. And based on a false premise. We aren't talking about ANY industry. We are talking about oil. And if the oil was here to be
extracted, the companies would be there extracting it. You claim was drilling would be the panacea for gas prices, but have not given a shred of
insight into hwo this would actually work in the market. Instead, you blame 'liberals', a bogeyman indeed.
answer me this wouldnt you rather drill here instead of go invade other countries because the entire wealth of this country is dependent upon
on single commodity?
Well, the POINT, though, is that the oil isn't 'here' to be drilled. We are already extracting what we can extract. We import oil because we exceed
our own stores. Now, you could lobby for us to CONSUME less. But you cant really expect us to magically produce more oil than we actually have in the
ground. And, sure, stripping th inudstry of regulations might lower operating costs a tiny, tiny amount, but as we've seen with the recent BP
'spill', stripping regulation has some seriously bad effects on the economy.
i would think of the trillions that would be save but alas no no drilling here no thing./quote]
You keep saying that, like it will magically make oil appear. Why? And how would it save trillions to drill for oil that we dont have? PLEASE, show me
the locations of all this oil sitting untapped, hidden away by those pesky, all-powerful environmentalists.
and heres another thing that those "wacky environmentalists" are not thinking about everything else that is made from oil by products google
the list its quite large alot of things you will take a double take on.
Yes. And the price of tea in china is high this year.
quote]not to mention the new jobs and new wealth that would be created here instead of abroad and consider where all that wealth goes to.
AGAIN, you cant magically create jobs extracting oil that isn't there.
20 million on umemployement another 50 million on welfare your talking oil industry and the pay scale is pretty good how many people would be
lifted up out of poverty in this country ? how much more tax revenue would be generated in government taxes? more people working means less people on
umemployment and welfare./quote]
Mmmhmmm. STILL not seeing your reasoning for WHERE all this oil supposedly is.
or we can continue to sit back and cry and moan about how evil big oil is when it was those government regulations that have killed off the
compitetion to the point that there are only a few remaining.
Ahh, yes, back to the claim that 'regulations' made the oil disappear.
people seem to forget big goes to where the oil is and oil and oil shale is here in vast quantities.
if people really want to change us foreign policy and insure economic and national security we have the assets here what we need is the go
Again, you seem to think oil is an infinite resource. IT isn't
and people who block drilling here and offshore are perpetuating and inflating the coming disaster.
The disaster of what? The oil being all gone? You can't really blame the people you say are PREVENTING the oil from being extracted (the oil you are
claiming is so abundant) for the oil not being there, can you? Well, you just did!
Love it, bro!
