    China to Drill Off U.S. Coast?
    A top U.S. chemical industry official is warning that Chinese companies may soon drill for oil and gas 50 miles off the U.S. coast. American Chemistry Council President Jack Gerard cited a production contract between Cuba’s state-owned Cubapetroleo and China Petroleum & Chemical Corp. (Sinopec) for Sinopec’s development of Cuban offshore oil reserves, noting that by longstanding convention the territorial waters boundary between the U.S. and Cuba is half the distance between the Florida Keys and Cuba’s coast, less than 100 miles. “That means that a Chinese company is or will be drilling for oil and gas within 50 miles of the U.S. coast even though under U.S. policy American energy companies are barred from drilling along most areas of the U.S. coast,” Gerard said.

    Ya know, America has laid down and been walked on for so many years that this is no surprise. It will be a surprise if we take action. If we don't, there's more to come. Hell, everyone knows we have 20 million illegals in the Country, why worry? We have become PUSSIES and IDIOTS!!! Trying to (whatever) Iraqi ragheads why this Country falls apart!! Both Clinton and Bush SUCK, we need a leader with BALLS!! One that will tell Fox, yer taken em back, like it or not. One that says, Drill in our water yer toast! It needs to be done, before we spin down the drain.

    That's my 2 cents!

    The only reason we're not drilling there is due to the enviro-whackos. Next thing ya know, India will start drilling ANWR.

    "Be True to your School" Beach boys

    When some loud braggart tries to put me down
    and says his school is great
    I tell him right away
    " Now what's the matter buddy ain't ya heard of my school
    it's number one in state"

    So be true to your school now just like you would to your girl or guy
    Be true to your school now and let the colors fly
    Be true to your school

    I got a lettermen's sweater with a letter for football and track
    I'm proud to wear it now when I cruise around
    the other parts of town-I got a decal in back
    So be true to your school now and let your colors fly
    Be true to your school

    On Friday we'll be jacked up on the football game-and be ready to fight
    We're gonna smash 'em now
    My girl will be working on her pom-poms now
    and she'll be yelling tonight

    So be true to your school now
    Just like you would your girl or guy
    Be true to your school now and let the colors fly
    Be true to your school

    Rah rah rah be true to your school
    Rah rah rah be true to your school
    Rah rah rah be true to your school
    Rah rah rah be true to your school



    There thats my two cents worth! :funnyface

    Im so sick of this crap. USA, the nation that laid down and died. Our politicians have killed us softly with their songs.

    I have to give you props for the Beach Boys reference. They are one of my all time favorite groups. Brian Wilson is a genius. Song writing, production, layering the vocals. Way ahead of his time.

    Pet Sounds - One of the best all around albums ever produced.
