Why We need to Drill for Oil: Now!
Drill. This is now a national security issue as we are now so economically weak that even a small terrorist attack (which most of the forgetful, wide-eyed, feel good, politically correct Lefties think could never happen again-mostly as a result of the fact that the Bush people have made sure it hasnt happened again) could bring this country to a two class system: the have and have nots. Mandate drilling in Anwr, in North Dakota & partially offshore. The psychological effects on futures traders alone would bring the price down in the short run. In the long run we secure our future/independence. If alternative methods of energy blossom and grow during the interim then we can shut down some of the drilling and give tax breaks to the companies that invested in the drilling operations. It's tough decision time. Stop wiping tears for caribou that may have to run around a fence or "the devastation to local eco-systems". Local ecosystems will be fine under proper mangement. You can still put on your wide-brimmed canvas hat and your multipocketed canvas vest and get out of your Subaru (with Obama sticker) with binoculars in hand and live in your delusional reality of "tending to Mother Earth." Its really pathetic that the Greatest Generation created a path for their children and grandchildred (the Baby Boomers) to become the Worst Generation of selfish, narcisstic, Godless, whining, drug taking baffoons who "think" they "changed the world" by practically destroying one of the greatest experiments by humans in all of time: America. I am not talking about the change that came with Civil Rights or Equal Rights or technological advancements that have progressed over the last 50-60 years - those results are from pure logic that any generation would have manifested. I am talking about the self-important, feel good at any cost, don't offend anyone, 'what about me' Baby Boomer idiots who rode Its a Small World too many times at Disney World and have allowed this great country to disolve into a pleasure-seeking cesspool by steering the national outlook into the murky grays of self-centered relativism. There is black and white. There are no shades of gray. If you think otherwise then just one question: Which anti-depressant are you on? Drill. Drill now. The arguments against it have illusionary foundations in the shifting emotions of a generation self-absorbed.
