Perhaps someday distant.
And now, a message from our unpaid
We all know that oil is high priced right
now. Some say there is the need to
explore alternative energy sources. I
agree, we need to find an energy source that
doesn't necessarily require hydrocarbons.
However, with the geopolitical condition of
the world today, and the status of the
United States, I will implore this message
of wisdom upon the Congress of the United
DRILL, DRILL, DRILL!
We need to ensure the future of our
country and we cannot be left at the whims
of those who would like to see us wiped off
of the earth. However, that's just
what's happening as we cannot explore our
own oil fields in this country, yet we get
oil from the middle east.
Wake up, people! Oil is not going
away. It is our primary energy source,
like it or not. The truth is that
alternative energy sources, explored since
the mid 70s with the first oil panic, have
still not matured to the point where
we can rely on them in place of oil.
Ethanol? Not if we have to endure
higher corn prices to get it.
Biodiesel? Excellent idea, except
those that would push it are the same who
would like to see fast food gone.
French fries are good and the oil they cook
in can easily be made into biodiesel.
Let's start drilling here again wherever
we have oil, and we can bring the boys home
and enjoy lower prices at the pump that are
not at the whim of someone who would like to
believe it's still in the year 765 AD.
