Cool Vid

From a Frank Gaffney article at Townhall.com, this video to which he linked humorously illustrates the state of affairs with oil situation these days. I'm not one of those who believe the AGW whiners know much of anything useful, but I do believe it's time for drilling in this country right now. And what better reason than to reduce the amount of money flowing into countries that are less than friendly. Thus, I hope, but won't hold my breath, that Congress will follow the lead of President Bush and lift the restrictions on drilling. The time is now. Actually, the time was ten years ago, but what are ya gonna do?

Here's the Gaffney article. Check it out.

My guess, the ban will be lifted before a new president takes office. Why? Because some of these locations actually have rigs sitting on them waiting to go.

Let's reduce the flow of US money to the Saudis, Nigerians, Venezuelans and Canadians. We can do it right away. It's called conservation.

Drilling is not going to reduce the price of gas, and will only serve to increase our dependence on oil, most of which will continue to come from foreign sources. We have known this was coming for 30 years and our government has not only done nothing about it, but has worked it ass off to increase our lust for oil. The oil lobbyists are happy as pigs in mud.
