    Just do it already people. ANWR is 19,049,236 acres for cryin' out loud. The ecochondriacs have stood in the way long enough.

    Hat tip to Hot Air for the link, btw.

    Words of wisdom from the great Ed Morrissey

    Just do it! :D

    It's the principal of the thing. If Anwar was in the middle of a garbage dump the ecochondriacs would be against it. You see besides the fact that they just hate oilmen because it's politically cool to do so, they also believe that if you cannot drill and seek alternative energies at the same time.

    Why do you want to piss on Eisenhowers legacy... its not like hes got a lot of it.. granted he is at the top of my presidential fav list.

    I seriously give two shits where we drill.. What I dont like is this bottom of the ninth urgency to find more oil... I am quite suspicious of this drill drive for no other reason than if the pubs were seriously concerned about this holes would have been drilled from here to eternity when they owned both houses and the senate...

    yeah, a slight of hand....if alaska takes the land from us in a swap, they take OUR RICHES....oil, then THEY get a cut of the profits/proceeds....leaving us, the original owners, who bought the land from alaska i believe, empty handed!!!:badgrin:

    i WANT MY CUT!!! :eusa_angel: :eusa_shifty:

    care
