    Indeed there are no magic solutions

    but plenty of common sense solutions

    enable all production of domestic oil, gas, shale and coal reserves for u.s. Consumption, and the resumption of nuclear development for starters

    incentives and tax breaks should be credited

    for the past thirty years certain clueless bureaucrats cant seem to recognize the obvious

    Crap! We are exporting gasoline. So all of your 'solutions' would just allow the energy corperations to export even more gasoline, without bringing down the price of gasoline one cent.

    No you did not. You stated domestic production, not domestic consumption. And just how are you going to pass legislation telling the energy corperations that they cannot export petroleum products?

    And why should we give them tax breaks when they are making billions every quarter?

    What we need is an energy policy that encourages vehicles, homes, and businesses that use less energy for the same results. Rather than giving the billionaires even more billions, we need to be investing in R and D on energy generation and storage. Whether cold fusion, cheap and high efficiency solar panels, or truly failsafe nuclear plants, the R and D should be a priority. High capacity batteries, at a reasonable cost, would make the electric car a reality, and high efficiency solar would allow the homeowner to provide power for his home and vehicle.

    The things you are suggesting would be like the govenment funding horse breeders to provide faster horses in 1910 for better transportation for the masses.

    Pass a law forbidding all envionmentalists, green people, and liberals to own, sit in, ride in a fossile fueled mode of transportation.

    As long as Christians are banned from medical treatments that use evolutionary theory as their basis of biology.

    And fundamentalists couldn't use anything which is over 6000 years old, which I'm afraid includes petroleum...sorry!. No plastics either.

    You guys REALLY thought out this line of reasoning well, didn't you?

    When we actually have high capacity batteries, effecient solar energy, and barley power let us all know

    weve been waiting for thirty plus years for these cost effecient miracles of physics

    until that magical day we neednt depend on the saudis

    we will leave the walking, bicycling and "high speed" rails up to the regressives

    We already have that. Obama's Secretary of Energy has said that we need to figure out a way to make US gas prices the same as our friends in Europe have to pay. He and Obama WANT the gas prices to rise. Obama has decreased production of oil on federal land.
    Oh yeah! Let's give more stimulus money to green energy companies (that just happen to be run by our campaign donors and are on the way to bankruptcy already....let's give them billions to make off with!

    You Obama worshiping idiots should pay attention. Your boy is deliberately screwing this country to make us more like his socialist friends.

    Liberalism is a mental disorder!

    I fixed your post for you...


    Rail can move a ton a freight 500 miles on a gallon of fuel.
    Go ahead and display your willful ignorance some more.

    I wonder if the horse and buggy types were this vociferous in their opposition to the horseless carriage?
