I’m happy that North Dakota is having a good boom time with the oil rush. Their economy is roaring.
And ours here is withering. Because 3,000 jobs from here went directly there. Jobs shut down here and opened there directly because of policy from the Obama Administration. Because of the actions of Ken “The Loathsome Cowboy” Salazar specifically. A lot of Utah residents are working N.D. right now… I’ve talked to several guys just today that are working over there. Companies fly them back and forth. Making great money. Pumping their economy up like an balloon.
Utah Schools is looking at deep cuts. All the County Governments are looking at deep cuts. Utah is tightening its belt, big time. But North Dakota is booming. “Hey, Ken! Where are those Oil Leases people PAID FOR? Where’s the Money, Ken?” If you didn’t want people drilling there – then don’t put those areas up for lease! Just a thought. Friggen thief.
I’m not bitter against N.D. Not at all… good for them… but the way this shook out is outrageous.
1. The US need to be an Oil Exporter, not an Importer. That means we drill the Gulf of Mexico, Alaska, Utah, and everywhere we have oil and natural gas.
2. The US needs to stop using Food to turn into gasoline. Corn is a poor energy source as it takes more energy than we gain from it. It also drives up food prices across the board.
There has been a lot of talk by Obama and his henchmen about crushing Coal. In his own words, what has Obama said about Coal? He said he wants to bankrupt them.
Yet the Department of Energy, on their own website, seems to support Coal.
Coal is one of the true measures of the energy strength of the United States. One quarter of the world’s coal reserves are found within the United States, and the energy content of the nation’s coal resources exceeds that of all the world’s known recoverable oil. Coal is also the workhorse of the nation’s electric power industry, supplying more than half the electricity consumed by Americans.
Interesting. Obama’s Energy Czar was on a crusade to kill coal, but luckily he resigned. Regardless of what happened… The intention was there.
From the DOE’s page, over half of the Nation’s Energy is from Coal. And Obama wanted to bankrupt that? In Texas they have had rolling blackouts because of a lack of energy from coal…
Here’s the deal, America is rich with natural energy. We have oil and natural gas under our feet. Energy should be CHEAP for us. But it isn’t. Why isn’t it?
