"€œGod willing, with the force of God behind it, we shall soon experience a world
without the United States and Zionism."€ -- Iran President Ahmadi-Nejad

"There are things you can do individually, though, to save energy. Making sure your tires are properly inflated – simple thing. But we could save all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling – if everybody was just inflating their tires? And getting regular tune-ups? You'd actually save just as much!" ------ Barack H. Obama “Barack Obama remains opposed to new offshore drilling (although he now says he would accept a highly restricted version as part of a comprehensive package). Just [recently], he claimed that if only Americans would inflate their tires properly and get regular tune-ups, ‘we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling.’ This is bizarre. By any reasonable calculation of annual tire-inflation and tune-up savings, the Outer Continental Shelf holds nearly a hundred times as much oil. As for oil shale, also under federal moratorium, after a thousand years of driving with Obama-inflated tires and Obama-tuned engines, we would still have saved only one-fifth the oil shale available in the United States.” ------ Charles Krauthammer

It would be foolish not to be in support of conservation, but seriously, conservation is not an energy policy. It is - well - just conservation.

Drill now. Do it for the children - so they have an adequate oil supply line. We have no real alternate even close to replacing the dredded fossil fuel. Wind power and solar power is not going to fly our planes or propel our automobiles.
