  • The Freedom Our Forefathers fought for must be protected.

    "Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free." - Ronald Reagan

Hate Fest at University of California at Irvine

Posted by rightwinger on May 30, 2008

Yes, we have free speech in America, but not when it incites violence. I’m not an expert on the Constitution, but I do remember from my secondary education that yelling “fire” in a theater is considered illegal due to the violence that would ensue with the hoards of people trying to escape. Wake up America!!! Israel is first then they are coming for us.

Maxine Waters threatens to nationalize America’s oil industry

Posted by rightwinger on May 29, 2008

Stupidity at its best. Maxine Waters wants to nationalize the oil companies. This is what the Dems really want. The government can’t balance its budget, but it thinks it can run the oil companies. Sure Maxine, whatever.

Obama Wants You to Sell your SUV and Eat Less

Posted by rightwinger on May 21, 2008

What’s next how many kids you have??? Who is Obama to tell me I can’t drive an SUV or eat what I want. Instead of drilling in North Dakota, he wants to tell us what temperature we can set our A/C on.

Oil Independence Voted Down by Dems Again!!!

Posted by rightwinger on May 19, 2008

What!!!??? The Dems vote down drilling again while Americans are hurting and losing jobs!!! I guess they see it as a plus. See how evil Bush is, and he doesn’t care. Give me a break. I want clean air and water as much as the next person. I recycle. I don’t drive an SUV. If hybrids come down in price enough, I’ll buy one. We need oil until the next new energy breakthrough comes about. We need oil now and for the next 50 years. We should drill in America and help ourselves and not the Middle East.

Liberal political leaders, including two who happen to be running for President, constantly claim to seek American oil independence. Invariably, however, they turn around and thwart measures to achieve precisely that.

This week, a bill introduced by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R – Kentucky) once again illustrated liberals’ duplicity on this subject.

Senator McConnell, along with twenty other Republican Senators, had introduced the Domestic Energy Production Act, which sought to allow domestic oil exploration and production in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) and the deepwater Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). This would result in production of more barrels of oil here at home, creating well-paying American jobs in the process, as opposed to further increasing dependence upon oft-hostile foreign sources.

Unfortunately, the liberals who now dominate the Senate defeated this prudent measure, and once again said “no” to greater American oil independence.

We should not negotiate with Terrorists

Posted by rightwinger on May 16, 2008

Wake up America! We can’t negotiate with terrorists.

From the Congressional Hearing: 9/11 Five Years Later: Gauging Islamist Terrorism (Serial No. 109–212)

You asked for a status report on all this, Mr. Chairman. I would just say that I think there have been some steps made in the right direction. I am encouraged by some of the statements coming out of the Administration, alas, very lately, about the character of the enemy and the nature of this ideological movement. But much, much more needs to be done. Specifically, I would suggest we need to get this country on a war footing, to mobilize it as we have in the past when we faced similar kinds of problems. We have to. And I commend Congressman Sherman for this. We have to bring coherence to this effort because whether it is the Khatami visit, or whether it is the notion that we can’t negotiate with the bin Ladens of the world, rightly so, but we can negotiate with their Shiia Islamofascist counterparts in Iran is crazy making and, I think, discredits our efforts.

It is imperative, moreover, that U.S. policy be coherent and that still is not always the case. For example, it was striking that, in his excellent speech before the Military Officers Association of America on September 5th, President Bush forcefully explained why it is not possible to appease or negotiate with Islamofascists like al Qaeda and its allies. He then proceeded to show convincingly that the behavior and ambitions of such Sunni extremists are shared by their Shia counterparts led by Iran. Yet, his State Department is actively promoting the notion that we can safely and successfully engage in negotiations with Islamofascists like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and the ruling mullahs in Tehran.

Big Oil

Posted by rightwinger on May 13, 2008

Cal Thomas’ article on Big Oil doesn’t even address the huge oil find in South Dakota, North Dakota, and Canada recently found. Maybe once our standard of living goes down in the US because of high oil prices, we’ll take back our country from the environmentalists.

Robertson said there would be plenty of oil available to the United States if the oil companies were allowed to get it: “Eighty-five percent of offshore oil is off-limits.” Responding to objections to offshore drilling by environmentalists and their allies in Congress, Robertson noted that some of the strongest pro-environment nations in Europe — he mentions Denmark, Norway, the United Kingdom — lease offshore locations for oil exploration. The technology has become so good, he said, that during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, “one thousand offshore wells were destroyed (in the Gulf of Mexico), but not one leaked.” Australia, he said, has allowed offshore drilling for 40 years without any environmental damage.

According to government estimates, there is enough oil in areas accessible to America — 112 billion barrels — to power more than 60 million cars for 60 years. The Outer Continental Shelf alone contains an estimated 86 billion barrels of oil and 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Had President Clinton not vetoed exploration in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) in 1995, when oil was $19 a barrel, America would currently be receiving more than 1 million barrels a day domestically, all of it taken by better technology than existed more than 30 years ago. That was when the Alaskan pipeline was built despite protests from environmentalists who claimed it would destroy the caribou. It didn’t, but the environmentalists are back with the same discredited arguments. Because most of the oil remains “off-limits,” we are becoming more dependent on foreign oil.

No, we can’t “drill our way out” of our addiction to oil, but we can make the transition to other energy sources easier while lessening our dependence on foreign oil and propping up dictators who use our money to subsidize terrorists. A slow transition will also give us time to consider more fuel-efficient cars and greater use of public transportation, even bicycles for short trips. Bikes would help more of us lose weight and get in shape. A friend bikes to work every day, saving gas, car payments, insurance and repair costs.
