WTF  is going on with the freakin’ gas prices?  It is getting absolutely ridiculous once again.  The freakin’ middle east is on fire and the price of oil is once again above $100/barrel.  When Obambi came in office oil was under $36/barrel.

Do you remember this?

He clearly wants oil and energy prices to be high.  He has done everything possible to raise the price of gas.  Any good President would have been out front during the Egyptian revolution – it took Obambi 6 days to say anything.  A good President would have been out front during the Libyan revolution – Obambi took 9 days to say anything.  Jordan, Bahrain, Tunisia – and on March 11th – Saudi Arabia are currently in the middle of civil uprisings – all affecting the price of oil.

We import 63% of all of our oil from foreign countries. Here’s where that oil comes from:

America is the 3rd largest oil producer in the world at 8.7mbl/day.  America consumes 21mbl/day. It is estimated we have 150 years worth of oil in reserves. America has 21bbl in proven reserves – which if we produced ALL of our own oil – would last about 10 years.  However, there is an estimated 100bbl/d in unproven reserves.  These are the ones where geologists believe there is oil – but our government refuses to allow us to do any exploratory drilling.  Technically we have about 50 years in reserves if our freakin’ government would just open it up.

This government has done absolutely nothing for 40 years! I remember sitting in the long gas lines with my parents  in 1973. It was ridiculous then and it is even MORE ridiculous now that prices are up.  That idiot Carter created the Department of Energy that was supposed to lead us to energy independence using ALL of our resources.  Instead – we have a multi-billion dollar boondoggle federal government department that has lead us down a path of energy dependence on foreign countries. I was living in Pennsylvania when we had the 3 Mile Island scare – which subsequently resulted in the U.S. halting production of any new nuclear facilities. There hasn’t been a new reactor built in the U.S. in over 30 years. We only have 104 in the entire country and they expect only 2-4 new ones to be on line in 2018. Only 20% of our total energy production is from nuclear. Hell, even France has 75% of their energy coming from nuclear power.

Obambi and the rest of those eco-nutjobs would have us believe that we should shut down ALL coal-fired plants, ALL nuclear powered plants, and shut down ALL oil production and we should only use hydro, wind, and solar power.  Well, that is all fine and good – but – at this time NONE OF THEM are a viable source of energy.  Hydro power 3% of our total energy in this country. Every location that has strong enough currents to generate hydropower are already in production.  9% is the best we’ll get from that source.  Rather than explain it all – check out this chart:

ONLY 8% of our total energy production comes from those renewable sources.  Of that 8% only 1% of that is Solar and 9% is wind. If you do the math – that means that only .008% of our entire energy production comes from solar and .072% of our total energy production is wind.  These ARE NOT viable options yet this freakin administration is pushing solar and wind.  Why?  Even those who are experts and pro-wind power says it is not viable. Just check out the Horse Hollow Wind Energy Center in Nolan, Texas.  It spans 47,000 acres and only produces 210mw of power.  That only provides power for 2500 hours of full load. This is THE largest wind farm in the world and it hardly produces anything.  It costs about $1,2 – 2.6 Million per 1mw of power produced. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, 47,000 acres is 74 square miles.  Talk about a waste of money, time, and land.

Could someone please explain why this administration insists on playing “Where’s Obama” when it comes to doing what is right for this country?  Why is Obambi and this administration so hellbent on destroying our economy?  When gas gets to $4/gal again – we’re going to see this economy tank even further – yet – Obambi does nothing, nothing to alleviate the problem.  He WANTS oil prices to skyrocket – and I think it is so he can FORCE this alternative energy crap down our throats.

That alternative energy ain’t going to mean shit when people out in the real world can’t afford to get to work and can’t afford to buy food to feed themselves and their families.  We are decades away from alternative energy to ever being a viable means of energy production.  What needs to be done is to start drilling everything we got and to start putting nuclear facilities online immediately.  Once we are energy stable in this country – THEN start investing in these technologies.

Just saying
