Thread Name: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
Subject: RE: BS: DRILL ANWR now!!!!
First, I dismiss the entire treatise above in terms of its accuracy. It is simpley more left-wing propaganda couched in pseudo-science to make you a "believer." The so-called "damage" would be miniscule in proportion to some of the benefits.
Like it or not, we live in a mechanized, industrial and technological age. While I do not debate the unhealthy lust for oil by the biggies (like US, UK, Europe and now, China!), ignoring new sources of petrol BEFORE things have switched over is not the Devil's work.
I WORKED for these guys!! I supported the "company line" for better than a decade. But I have left, and see the lies and half-truths for what they are. There is more than enough oil out there to sustain, and prospet us well into the 21st century--maybe beyond. As I said, most of the price of barrel oil is DICTATED by the Speculators--not actual MARKET CONDITIONS. Get these assholes outta there, and watch what happens to the "precious" barrels. They will drop like a rock in water. It's a fact, Jack. I learned a LOT about the behind-the-scenes fixing of prices, and illegal jacking up of the oil price. Seriously: it's a freakin' joke! It's ALL being controlled by foreign and domestic concerns. No...this is not some "Da Vinci" code, or off the wall conspiracy. It's there. Our so-called oil-rich leaders will not call a spade a spade. The ACTUAL price of per-barrel oil ought to be between 35-40 dollars. NOT $75.00.
Now, it is SERIOUSLY impacting on our economy, poor folks, borderline folks, folks all over the world. Posting here on it will not change a thing...which is why I have sent similar missles to many in upper echelon government positions. So far, the replies have been form letters, and more dissembling. But I will keep at it, because it is a national disgrace!!!!!
