2. "...still gonna be using fossil fuels..."......doh, yeah dip shit...just NOT YOURS!!
We've got enough oil in this country to take care of those needs once we get off oil from the Middle East.

These pigs can drink their oil, if it's so damn good!

3. The US hasn't been bothered to develop alternatives thus far - THAT is one big reason...
...we're in the f*cking mess we're in RE: national security and terror/oil.

The bastard JUST SAID IT "if there are alternatives...."

There are NOT alternatives and bu$hit - who is GREAT friends with the Sauds - has vehemenently RESISTED doing ANYTHING to develop alternatives - and HIS FRIENDS JUST TAUNTED US WITH OUR OWN FAILURE to develop them.

5. What I find interesting in all this oil talk is how much importance we put on foreign oil.
But the word foreign is used as a pejorative as if to demonize middle eastern oil.
If we hadn't screwed everything up over there for decades and decades we wouldn't have be a$#holes about it.
Since we get most of our oil from Canada of all places, I wonder how they feel about the constant talk of evil "foreign oil" when it has been our ally through thick and thin for as long as we were a nation.

7. SA supplies the US with 17% of our oil usage.
Edited on Tue Dec-09-08 06:51 AM by saddlesore
We should work towards dropping that 17% and we would see a whole new world...unfortunately the BFEE and the House of Saud are joined at the hip in International Crime and Terror in order to keep their iron fist on world politics.

These are my opinions...peace.

...been in bed with the Flu since last Thurs so I'm not sure what today's price is, but without feeding cheap credit to oil speculators the prices can't be manipulated, it appears
