    KEYSTONE XL PIPELINE.

    Producing more oil do not affect the price of oil, gasoline as supporters of the pipeline claim. There is no shortage of oil anywhere in the worldly. If we produced more oil and the price of oil went down, producers would stop producing more oil because they don’t profit when oil goes down to $50 a barrel instead of $100 a barrel. Or gasoline goes down to $1 a gallon. It simple does not profit the oil producers to lower the price of oil. The Keystone XL Pipeline would bring in more oil but would not lower the price of gasoline. We could produce more oil if we needed more oil to lower the price of oil and gasoline.

    If you lowered the price of lettuce, the grower would grow, produce and sell more lettuce but will not make more money. Would not be profitable and they would stop producing more lettuce and the price would go up and they would make more money. Put it to your 5th grader.

    We get oil from Mexico, Canada and the Middle East in that order, not because we do not have oil in the ground, but because of the cost of getting it out and processing it would not be cost effective and bring down the cost of oil or gasoline.

    Beetles are part of the eco system and we all know what happens when the eco system is disturbed. Yes, the beetles are important. Of course the white man don’t know because he is driven by greed.

    Has it brought down the price of gasoline? NO.


    Ps.
    If people who do not quality for food stamps are receiving them, blame it on the States that issue them and not Obama.
    Obama do not control private sector hiring and firing. There were 165,00 private sector jobs added in July. Obama did not do that?

    That is because the Koch's are rat holing it all at their Witchita, Kansas tank farm. They have a lot of money invested in said oil sands. Also Boehner is invested in them heavily-- why not impeach him for insider trading etc, because as speaker of the house he should NOR preside over anything to do with this pipeline! Tar sands are more polluting than oil is itself.

    Your #1 supplier is Canada. Now this post is so whacked out, I don't know where to start.

    We don't want to behead you. That's a big plus.

    We're nice and polite (unless we lose the Stanley Cup :))

    We have great beer. We gave the world Rush, Niel Young, John Candy and many more.

    Celine??? What???

    There were moments of gold
    And there were flashes of light
    There were things we'd never do again
    But then they'd always seemed right
    There were nights of endless pleasure
    It was more than all your laws allow
    Baby, Baby, Baby

    Much of that post does make sense. When oil is $90/barrel and you flood the market with oil, you have a lot more of $90 oil. Ironically, physical supply often does not determine the market price. There's a lot of shit in the mix, and that's where we are today.

    I think there will soon be a huge correction in commodities, especially crude oil. The stock market will tank like it did in '07 and '08. But much depends on the Federal Reserve. They are printing money and buying back bonds like hell wouldn't have it.

    We are living in a pretend economy. AKA Obamaconomy.
