Democrats insist that we shouldn't drill off the Pacific coast or in Alaska or in the Dakotas because they claim we wouldn't get a drop of oil for at least 10 years.
And that's true, but only if the same left-wing idiots who are more concerned with moose than with people won't allow the oil companies to build new refineries.
Also, even if it were true that we wouldn't be any better off for an entire decade, what do you suppose they'll be saying in 2018, when gas is going for 25 bucks a gallon?
The U.S. military is building seven pilot plants they claim will give us a million barrels of oil a day. If everything pans out as they think it will, they claim we'll be free of dependence on foreign oil within five years.
Best of all, it suggests that all those gas bags in the House and Senate will finally be of benefit to America.
It's my guess that hooked up properly, Nancy Pelosi, alone, could supply all the energy needs of Dayton, Ohio.
Do you realize that Speaker Pelosi, who is only a few heartbeats from the Oval Office, owes all of her power and prestige to the fact that about a hundred thousand people in San Francisco, a city in which cross-dressers constitute a voting bloc, voted her into the House and about 125 House Democrats then elected her to the speakership?
You need more votes than that to be elected the mayor of Fresno.
I probably shouldn't belittle those so-called public servants in Washington, D.C. After all, how would you like to have to wake up each day, knowing you are going to have to listen to the likes of Barbara Boxer, Robert Byrd, John Kerry, Barney Frank and John Murtha flapping their gums, and all the while pretending you're paying close attention?
But enough about politics. Let's discuss religion. That brings us to Barack Hussein Obama, the presumptive messiah of the Democratic Party. It's a funny thing about Democrats. Although they tend to be secular in nature, they are strict fundamentalists when it comes to their candidates. They refuse to acknowledge that their standard bearers have any shortcomings. Republicans, on the other hand, when discussing their own candidates, are eager to point out their every conceivable fault. Republicans are simply more honest and far more realistic than liberals. They acknowledge they are not voting for God, merely the better candidate.
For many of us in the GOP, the problem with John McCain is that he strikes us as wrongheaded when it comes to illegal aliens and campaign reform. On the other hand, he is in favor of appointing conservative judges; he is for attacking radical Islam on their home turf; he is for doing anything and everything to prevent a recurrence of 9/11; he is for lower taxes and for drilling our way out of dependence on the sorry likes of Russia, Venezuela, Iran and Saudi Arabia; he is for siding with Israel, America's single ally in the Mideast, and against the degenerates who support al-Qaida and Hezbollah, who honor suicide bomber, and who danced in the streets when their friends and relatives brought down the Twin Towers.
