    Seriously. We need to find more oil reserves within our borders so that we can stop relying on people on the other side of the planet to run our economy.

    Of course we do. IT was a rhetorical question to evironmentalist pussies. I believe with the technology that we possess today, we can find a way to get oil out of Alaska and not endanger the wildlife. But so long as environmentalists throw money away on activist groups, then it won't happen.

    someone a while back posted a vid clap from a site call ANWR.org. It was of a native advocating drilling in ANWR. Kinda made me think. Libs can't have it both ways. that is lower dependency on foreign oil and not drill ANWR

    Come on guys. Dont you realize that the current inflation of oil prices is a plot by President Bush to put pressure on congress to allow us to drill in Alaska?;)

    Drilling in ANWR could happen yesterday if the republicans would back off the demand about limiting liability to drilling companies in case of spills.

    In today's sue-happy culture, I can understand the GOP's willingness to put something like that in there.

    Do you have any links to the bill, or to a summary of the bill, that talks about those provisions? I'd kind of like to read them.
