As it turns out, the fossil fuel reserves in this country has just been expanded dramatically. By the use of a technique called “fracking” the amount of shale oil and natural gas reserves has been expanded so much, it seems to me that developing these reserves should be a “no brainer”.. But wait, oh yea, our President wants gas and fuel prices as high as possible so we all volunteer, oh, I mean, are forced, into his green agenda. If the GOP, never mind the Dems because we know they don’t or won’t jump on this, we need to throw all the bums out. We as a nation MUST get a lot more energy independent. We need not only for our economy, but for the security of the nation. Click the pic for the story. Question; How long (really) has this been known and by whom? Hmmmmmmmmm
Thanks to our illustrious Governor here in Washington State, we have one of the highest, if not THE highest gas prices in the nation. The media was all over GW when gas got this high. Where is the outrage now? My guess is there won’t be because the Progressives are happy with the situation with their man in the Oval Office. OPEC leaders have said their target is $100 per barrel at least. It is disgusting! We could be much much more oil independent of our government would allow the domestic and off shore drilling and pumping we need, plus allowing the building of a few more refineries. This whole situation needs to do an “about face” and get on the proper track for the betterment of OUR country. Obama must rescind his Executive Orders shutting down drilling. I couldn’t care less about what that would do to overseas providers.. Get it done!!
ENVIRO-NAZI’S WIN BIG BY WAY OF OBAMA EXECUTIVE ORDER “Stewardship of the Ocean, Our Coasts, and the Great Lakes”
Yea, that’s right, Obama has effectively and completely given the government complete control over the entire spectrum of usage of these waterways, amounting to nothing less than a “water grab”. In reviewing this Executive Order, the language is both broad and specific in such ways that the government can and will cut off all these waterways to any type of commercial use. He handed these Enviro-Nazi’s a HUGE victory and us Americans have taken a huge hit to our liberties and abilities to make a living. This is the type of crap that cannot be allowed to stand. He did this because this type of legislation has never made it through Congress, so he very effectively took the legislative path out of the equation. No vote, no debate, no oversight,….nothing! He handed these waters and countless jobs over to these Enviro-Fascists. In my observation, it is my opinion that this is just part of his plan to dismantle America and bring you and me to our knees, to the government. To this I say HELL NO!!!! I demand that the new, incoming Republican Congress do everything it can to bring this new agency to its knees! One really glaring thing in this Executive Order really has me puzzled. Why id the Assistant to the President for Homeland Security and Counter-terrorism, a Co-Chair on this committee? What does DHS have ANYTHING to do with this subject? Huh?!?!?
The corrupt Democrat Senators, Representatives and President would rather keep you out of good ol’ US soil than stop the illegal aliens that are streaming in. “The ‘Bama” is hatching a scheme to grant blanket amnesty and citizenship to all the illegals in this country so he can secure his next term and further entrench the Democrat controlled congress.

THE WHITE HOUSE,January 11, 2010.
Now that you have read this, what do you think? This is purported to be just an effort to organize the State Governors AND their respective State National Guard resources in the event of terrorist attack. But, in my most considered AND informed opinion, this Executive Order is ripe for abuse by an Administration that has less than honorable, well meaning, well intended, patriotic intentions. It seems to me that this level of organization could be used to co-ordinate NGB/State National Guard resources for use in a declared “civil emergency”, in order to help the populace, as well as against the populace in a contrived, concocted emergency that would/could provide the excuse they need for the imposition of martial law. Yea, I know this sounds like I am talking a bunch of conspiracy theory stuff here, but, to me, taking a lot of other actions by this Administration into account, this could be a very important piece of the puzzle/plan now being put into place. You would need the Governors “on-board” with the martial law plan, who in turn would have to get their respective AG’s on-board also. It could come down to important 1 “fire-wall” to save us all. And that would be the AG’s AND the Joint Chiefs of Staff standing up and not following an order which is against the Constitution, thus making it an illegal order, one that military members are not obligated to follow by Military law. So, are we to the point when we must rely on the military to save US from a tyrannical, out of control Government? Hmmmmmmm. Maybe so……….. I’d hate to think that………
