OPEC, Shale, And The Kingdom Gets Nervous

It's news to me that last year the USA imported the lowest amount of foreign oil in 15 years.

Apparently some people in Saudi Arabia did notice. Exploitation of shale (oil and gas) is looking amazingly like the future for US energy, whether or not OPEC, or our domestic green party like it or not.

Predictions are that by 2030, The USA will be a net exporter of Gas from Shale as a result of improvements in technology.

So, You Think Voting For A Candidate From a Particular Party means Anything?

Really? The other day, the US Congress voted to continue the NSA's phone tap program in its current form. The amazing part was the breakdown of who voted for or against it. The fact is that party lines meant nothing.
As usual, money won the day.
The only party with any real power in Washington is the 'Green' party. As in Treasury green.

OH NO!!! Time To Ban Those Dreaded Assault Hammers

Looks like the Stanley Tool Co. is about to be lumped in with such dastardly american weapons manufacturers like Remington, Colt, etc.

I guess the mainstream media can call them by some catchy name like 'weapons of mass construction'.

It's Official, Detroit's In The Toilet

The special administrator appointed by the Governor a couple of months ago has decided to have the city file for Chapyer 9 Bankruptcy. Several courts have to decide whether or not Detroit qualifies to file for Chap. 9, but it's pretty much a foregone conclusion.

The amazing part is that some of the lunkhead politicians that helped run Detroit into the ground are running around screaming about "the fix is in" "their numbers ain't right" and assorted other race-related clap-trap.

What can you expect from a bunch of Democrats.

Illinois Is About To Join The 21st Century Pro Gun Movement

Even if Governor Pat Quinn doesn't like it!

I'm loving this. If this bill overides his veto, it'll be another black eye for Mike Bloomberg and and his Bullshit Mayors Against Illegal Guns sockpuppet group.
