Didn’t just hap­pen

The only true group that has caused the ex­treme gas prices are the Democrats — they have stopped any new drilling or re­finer­ies for over 25 years. We have more oil in the U.S. than the Mid­dle East, in places such as Alaska, the Gulf of Mex­ico and the Rocky Moun­tains. It is a shame that Cuba, China and Venezuela are cur­rently drilling for oil off of the Florida Coast. We have huge nat­u­ral gas de­posits in the Rocky Moun­tains, plus huge de­posits of clean burn­ing coal but the Democrats have stopped all of this to ap­pease the en­vi­ron­men­tal groups, not car­ing about the hard­ships on this coun­try.

We are not us­ing our en­ergy sources in the U.S., and our food prices are go­ing through the ceil­ing. Why? We are us­ing over 85 per­cent of our grain sup­plies — wheat, corn, soy and rice — in pro­duc­ing fuel in­stead of food for our cit­i­zens. Al­ready we are see­ing short­ages in flour, soy, rice etc. We are also buy­ing wheat from over­seas. This is all wrong. We need to use our en­ergy sources and get the dip­sticks (Democrats) in Wash­ing­ton to start mak­ing de­ci­sions that will help our coun­try. Bob Mehr Belle­vue,Wash­ing­ton
