The Energy Policy Joke

The United States Congress continues to live up to Mark Twain's assessment of the body as an exact replica of an insane asylum. The inmates, led by Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi, have reached out to make a great impression on the starving around the world. Now that US agricultural production will be devoted to the energy business prices are naturally rising. The demagogue leaders of poverty stricken nations can now truthfully blame the United States for promoting starvation in their lands. The liberals must be feeling hurt that the rest of the world doesn't recognize their good intentions; "the road to hell is paved with good intentions", that reliable chestnut is always ignored by liberals.

While Brazil, Mexico, Cuba, and Venezuela mine the oil in the Gulf of Mexico American idealist nuts are working to ensure that the US cannot do the same. Rather wind power, solar power, geo-thermal power, corn power et al is being hailed as the salvation of the planet.

The campaign started in the 1950's as an educational forum to rid the US of litter has turned into a gigantic way of life for those who cannot find one anywhere else. The so called leadership of the American people is incompetent and largely impotent when it comes to uniting the nation in a sensible way. When it comes to resolving conflicting interests the task has become impossible. There is no shading in opinions these days. Everyone is correct and wrong at the same time.

The United States has plenty of fossil fuel ready to be extracted for use by the nation. As a matter of fact fossil fuels by definition are still being created; as long as fossils remain buried in the earth they will continue to be squeezed into liquid form. Why should one suppose that the earth is no longer having an effect on fossilized animals and plant since the process began?

If only the self absorbed, frightened, liberal wackos could abandon their sleeping pills and simply go outside and contemplate the universe, it would become apparent to them that mankind can never have a major impact on creation.

The new energy policy of the United States of America will be much more devastating to human life than any sun flare that slightly warms the earth.
