Suicide

March 15, 2010

For some reason… when I think “Obama” and “Suicide”… I smile…

Until I saw this:

More Economic Suicide: Obama Administration Bans Offshore Drilling For 3 Years
Source: Gateway Pundit

In 2009 Democrats scrapped oil and gas leases in Utah, permanently banned drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR), and nixed offshore drilling.

For decades Democrats have blocked efforts to responsibly develop this nation’s energy resources, transforming vast areas of opportunity into “The No Zone.”

A recent study examined the cost of these democratic policies of not drilling and developing domestic oil reserves. The SAIC Corporation discovered that democrats will cost the US $2.36 Trillion through 2029.

And then there’s this…
Obama’s Secretary of Energy recently announced a three-year offshore drilling ban.
Investor’s Business Daily reported, via Planet Gore:

Our secretary of energy pushes bio-refineries and windmills to oil executives at an energy conference as the administration announces a three-year offshore drilling ban. This is a policy for economic suicide.

They don’t qualify as an official group of victims, but carbon-Americans, as they have been called, did not have much to cheer about last week, when Energy Secretary Steven Chu addressed CERAWeek 2010, a premier industry conference hosted by IHS Cambridge Energy Research Associates.

With an economy struggling to regain sound footing, Chu advocated a starvation diet devoid of additional fossil fuels that are to remain under the ground and seabed. Instead, he supports 53% more funding for wind research and a 22% jump for solar research.

Subsidizing alternative energy fits the classic definition of insanity. Despite huge subsidies, it has proved to be neither cost-effective nor a reliable, significant contributor to our national power grid. Yet we keep subsidizing it, expecting a different result.

“Oil is an ideal transportation fuel, so it will be with us for decades,” Chu conceded, even as the administration forbids us from getting more of it here, creating energy jobs, lowering energy costs and cutting our trade deficit. Instead we’ll rely increasingly on foreign and often unfriendly suppliers.

Chu acknowledged the role cleaner-burning natural gas can play in electricity generation, but only as a “transition to other fuels” in coming years. And the administration continues to gobble up lands where it might be found and impose environmental regulations that curtail the use of new technologies such as fracking to get more oil and natural gas from America’s vast shale deposits.

Can we all agree now that this administration is purposely trying to destroy this nation?

Sigh. Not the kind of suicide I had in mind.

    These scumbags know exactly what they are doing. They are systematically destroying our country so that they can take total control under the guise of saving us. The whole tribe should be tarred, feathered and run out of town. Start in November 2010.

      They’re doing the best they can with what they’ve got… which isn’t a whole lot, really. Majority of the American people are against this bullshit and are becoming MORE and MORE vocal about it. Come November, the American people WILL speak their minds. We will make it known that we’re not going to take this bullshit anymore — and the fact that it’s reached THIS point is NOT ACCEPTABLE.

      TREASON.

      Fishleg came up with this brilliant thought:

      Apparently the Republicans/Conservatives are the party of “no”. But, when it’s spoken; perhaps it’s meant as the party of “Know”. We “KNOW” this agenda is bad for America. We “KNOW” what America was founded on. We “Know” what we have to do in order to protect our nation. We “KNOW” the difference between right and wrong. We “KNOW” the importance of our constitution, of our liberty, rights, freedoms. We “KNOW”.

      😉 He’s a smart cookie.
