Can you believe liberals after stopping drilling in the United States want to stop Oil Companies more?

from drilling in Iraq? Kinda like Ted Kennedy wanting you to use wind power but won't have wind power near his house.

    Hgldr is 100% correct. The oil companies are holding millions of acres of oil options that they refuse to drill on until the price goes higher. They are quite happy to be charging four times what they should and the government pretending it can't do anything about it. But because it is "war time" they can tap your phone, torture people being held without charges, declare you a terrorist for disagreeing with them and confiscate your property.

    Stop ranting and look into what is going on. People who swallow propaganda them vomit it back up are not doing anybody a service.

    Yes I can believe it. I have noticed that several people have mentioned the millions of acres they currently have but are not drilling. Have these smart, intelligent people thought that there may not be any oil under that acerage? Also, did they know that the total amount of acerage leased to oil companies accounts for less than 1% of all possible federal land that could be leased? That probably goes right by them. Instead of trying to come up with a solution, they just want to tax the oil companies, not realizing in their infinite wisdom that the cost will be passed right back to the consumer. Better yet, several esteemed members of Congress have said they want to socialize the oil companies. There is a great idea, I would just that these wise folks read Ayn Rand's "Atlas Shrugged" then tell me what they think.

    Liberals hate America.

    Of course they drag out this whiny complaint that oil companies have all this acreage that they aren't currently pumping oil from.

    That oil companies are currently exploring much of that acreage to determine a) if there is oil, b) how much oil, and c) how much will it cost to get the oil, is beside the point. Because liberals don't understand machinery they think oil can be pumped from the ground immediately.

    Then there is all the property the oil companies have to pay for that they have already determined is useless.

    Why not open more land to drilling, the federal government gets money from those leases.

    What else could we expect from the Libs?

    Certainly nothing but complaining and being mad at oil companies for making huge profits. Wait until they figure out that oil companies aren't the only companies making huge profits. Nevermind, they wont.

    They just never seem to "get it" and still have the nerve to talk down to those that do get it.

    They are deranged.

    all democrats and anyone who votes for these vermin should be banned from using any product that uses oil.

    not only gasoline and motor oil, but plastics too.

    And one particularly big-mouthed perverted democratic constituency will have to do without vaseline petroleum jelly too.
