While our elected "leaders" are kow towing to the enviro nazis by removing sources of energy under US control from being developed such as Alaskan and offshore petroleum reserves and the vast low sulfur domestic coal deposits they are at the same time damning the "eeevil" corporations for price gouging as the costs of diminishing resources increase while demand is rising.
A large part of America's energy dependence on foreign sources can be traced to Sept. 18, 1996, when President Bill Clinton stood on the edge of the Grand Canyon on the Arizona side and signed an executive proclamation making 1.7 million acres of Utah a new national monument.[...] In fact, the declaration of 1.7 million Utah acres as a national monument, thereby depriving an energy-starved U.S. up to 62 billion tons of environmentally safe low-sulfur coal worth $1.2 trillion and minable with minimal surface impact, was a political payoff to the family of James Riady.It would appear that the economic and political dumbing down of the government educated masses is paying off big time for our "progressive" friends as it is possible that this most corrupt duo may soon to be returned to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. Let me know when a progressive politician or one of their enviro nazi minders comes out in favor of constructing a non polluting nuclear power plant to aid in solving this serious situation. Meanwhile Ms Clinton characterizes as "pathetic" the efforts of President Bush to convince our Arab "friends" to increase petroleum production. How right she is!
