Senate Energy-Speculation Bill Is Blocked - WSJ.com
Drill more, use less. Kinda has a nice ring to it. and something for everyone. More oil for those who actually understand the laws of supply and demand, and trade deficits, and Conservation for everyone else. With some alternative energy thrown in (Nuclear is an alternative to fossil fuels after all)
Just another nail in the GOP coffin
Why should congress vote to regulate something they haven't even proven EXISTS yet?
Can you show me the proof that evil long speculators caused the price to rise?
Proof? You want proof from a rabid leftwing idealog? Please, all he needs is to say it and there for it is true. Like all the " Bush lied" claims.
Nothing needs to be "proven." This is just another instance when perception alone is enough to cause the GOP votes. There is no proof speculators were the major reason for the crude oil run up. That is not the point.
The point is this vote, another block by the GOP, is just something else that the Dems can use this fall to bash the republican candidates. Come on, get real! Perception and spin is 80% of the game these days. Whether yo like it or not...
So you don't want congress to be 100% informed with all the facts before they vote on a piece of legislation that could potentially screw investors out of doing something that is otherwise legal.
So instead of keeping things accurate, fair, and LEGAL, you would rather congress play games with people's perception to hopefully garner more votes.
I got ya.
Here paul... allow me to hand you your ass...
Saudi Arabian Oil Summit Hopes to Isolate Cause of Price Rise - washingtonpost.com
The GOP should all get together and write a book entitled:
"How to lose elections without really trying"
Just another example of the left wing propaganda machine at work....
Speculation bill is bullshit...the bill does not allow a Congressional vote to come to the floor on off-shore drilling...thats is the nut of the matter and that is why the bill is not being supported by the Republicans....
Will the MSM report on that fact...of course not...it will run with the speculation crap because that is what will shine a bad light on the conservatives....Goebbels would be proud .... MSM- the masters of propaganda supporting the Democrats...
