    What is there to discuss? You don't have a link, any facts or figures.

    How's the weather in the Bay area today?

    Time Magazine has become a left wing rag and is on the verge of bankruptcy. The truth is that speculators drive up the price of crude. Speculators are gamblers who bet the odds and the odds are that Barry will do everything in his power to keep oil prices high in order to punish Americans for their decadence and change the fabric of American society. Speculators are no dummies. They will make money while Obama pushes the US further down the road to socialism and donate to his campaign in the meantime. If Barry opened ANWAR and authorized American companies to drill the speculators would take their money and run but that ain't likely to happen while the fools in the left wing media continue to push his propaganda and let him blame everyone else for his failure of leadership.

    No link because I get Time in the mail and reading the article is not necessary in responding to the thread. Some won't read anyway, they have been convinced that drilling for oil and building the pipeline are the solutions to all of our energy needs.

    [Today, we've had rain, wind, showers and now sun. Spring has sprung and this weekend the tomatoes go in as well as the herbs and onions, the citrus get pruned (lemon, lime, navel Orange and pommelo grapefruit) and the apricot, fig and nectarine get checked for bugs and sprayed if necessary.]

    Thanks for sharing. Hey, does rain get in the way of your 'hobby'? I guess little boys and girls don't ride their bikes in the rain, and if they did the seats wouldn't have that scent you crave.

    Increasing domestic oil production was never about lowering gasoline prices.

    It's about decreasing imports, lowering the trade defecit, employing Americans, keeping our petro dollars within our own borders, increasing royalty and bonus revenues to the Treasury, contributing to the GDP, improving tax revenues to Federal State and Local entities, and boosting economic activity

    Now that we've heard from the idiot fringe, a a shout out to 'warrior', it seems all this hoopla about the Keystone Pipeline and "Drill Baby Drill" is the Republicans usual non substantive bullshit. Sad, the former Grand Olde Party has devolved to their fringe elements, represented by liars.

    Oh, you mean stimulating the economy because keystone is shovel ready? I wonder how shovel ready it will be once the neighbors engage in NIMBY activity?

    All of what you suggest would be available and we would be better served by the Government supporting R&D of Green and renewable energy.
