    [Despite their snarky retorts about how the US is producing more oil domestically than at any other previous time, Barry O & Co have been quite busy holding domestic production back in his three years, probably as part of his planned "Fundamental Transformation Of America", weaker and poorer by the day. Just remember, eight years ago Democrats told us opening ANWR to drilling and exploration wouldn't have any ameliorating effects on the price of gasoline then, because it would take eight years to bring any ANWR production on line. With oil production, most Democrats would apparently choose to saw off the front of their feet than drill.]

    "Running On Empty

    John Boehner’s web site has posted this nice interactive chart that reminds us of some of the many actions the Obama administration has taken to suppress energy production, even as the price of gasoline at the pump continued its steady rise. If you hover the dots on the chart, an explanatory pop-up appears:"

    I've found a great article at Politico that you might be interested in.

    From the article: Obama policies threaten America's energy boom


    Thanks to an avalanche of new regulations from the Environmental Protection Agency — from new greenhouse gas emission rules to regulations specifically targeting the oil and gas industry — the cost of energy production is steadily increasing

    . Just one of these regulations — the new Tier 3 gasoline standard — is expected to drive up the cost of producing gasoline by 25 cents per gallon and force up to a 14 percent reduction in gasoline supplies from U.S. refineries.

    We know a couple of things. We know the so-called "alternate energy" corporations aren't worth the paper the logo is printed on and they collapse as soon as the taxpayer money runs out. We know that solar energy and wind turbines can never generate enough power to make a difference. We know nobody wants to buy a car that runs on a gigantic battery. We know that the pseudo-scientific community fudged data regarding the myth of man-made global warming. This is where it gets sticky, we know that Obama hired a communist and former leader of an arson and looting rampage to sit on his "green jobs board" even though Van Jones had no experience in the field. It's reasonable to assume that the radical "green" element is part of the socialist revolution.

    Watermelons. Green on the outside, red on the inside. :lol: I don't know if Delingpole invented it but it was in his blog where I first read it.

    And it's bang on the money.
