#1 He won't let us pump it because it could keep the US from the bankruptcy of socialism.

#5 Isn't shale oil extracted by mining not drilling?

#6 And here the National Geographic Society published - Yes, this time the oil shortage is real!

#7 Yes , yes this sounds so nice. The industry ia projecting 7-8 dollars for regular. We should see some increases this season as we would normally see. I would rather see everything be convered to NG.

#8 I hope it is true - iff one believes as I do that OWG-NWO is akin to [Proto]SPACE GOVT-ORDER, i.e. integrating, organizing, + unifying? the Govts, People, + Resources of Planet Earth for the exploration + habitation of Deep Space, then it should be anathema for same to see Politicos + Science Perts, etc. being seriously divided on major issues such as the availability, present + future, as per vital resources for such ventures.
BE IT CONTEMPORARY NATIONALISM, POST-NATIONALISM, GLOBALISM, POST-GLOBALISM, + "STAR/STELLARISM", THESE ARE THE QUESTIONS THAT M-U-S-T BE ASKED AND ANSWERED, LEST HUMANITY NEVER GOES INTO SPACE!

#10 Key word Is 'resources' - US has the most of those because our oil geology is by far the best-studied, and our ownership structure allows the most profit-per-barrel so attracts capital to the most 'marginal' of resources. This does not mean the US has the most petroleum in the ground or that it can be produced at a profit right now.

#12 One of the best ways to align the state and the driller would be to auction the right to drill, based on the %age the government gets to sell.
So you pump up 10 barrels, and bid 50% you give 5 barrels to the state.
Best way to disperse the money is via a dividend.

#13 The way I understand it oil shale was uneconomical until recently, with the price where it is oil shale makes sense. And if Obama was smart he'd embrace it because a source of free cash/energy is the only way he's gonna get people willing to give over economic control.

#14 JM- You couldn't have possibly been referring to the 1956 John Ford movie "The Searchers" starring John Wayne, Jeff Hunter and others...If so please explain the "Ward Bond" reference, because as far as I know, Bond wasn't in the later TV series.
And, YES; We are swimming in oil, natural gas and clean/dirty coal. The socialist pervert anarchists will soon totally cripple the USA if they are not "stopped".
