Freeze Congress and start drilling
Americans must wake up to the absurdity of the Democratic leaders’ unrelenting demonization of the oil industry.
After some 40 years of supposed political dedication to “reducing our dependency on foreign oil,” never has it been more difficult for these companies to receive regulatory approval in their search for domestic sources of oil and other fuels.
President Obama and his covey of clowns including Chuck Schumer, Harry Reid, Barney Frank, Dick Durbin, etc., don’t have the combined common sense of a single oil field roughneck.
When you need more of something (domestic oil production), you don’t remove existing subsidies, you simply remove the regulatory octopus that is strangling this industry with its tentacles.
How about two simple things to make Americans happy? Repeal the insane home light bulb restrictions, and place a 24month moratorium on the Department of Energy and any other current agencies restricting deep water or shallow water or shale extraction production permits. Let people do what they were born to do. Maybe the only possible way to get this country back on track would be for the Congress to take a 24-month vacation, along with all of the regulatory agencies they have insanely created. William W.
