‘Tight oil’ holds promise of ending U.S. oil imports

The drilling rigs puncture the horizons and tuck into the valleys of the bald North Dakota landscape. Their steel towers have taken root on a tableau of badlands and treeless plains that extends for more than 100 kilometres.

They are like steeples in the French countryside, erected in ever greater numbers, more every month, by an industry whose only deity is oil. Near many are the flares, the votive candles of the hydrocarbon age, where natural gas not worth enough to save is burned in enormous fireballs, some the size of small cars so brilliant they blind drivers at night.

        If all we do is talk on this and other blogs nothing is going to change. Show some initiative, talk to your represenatives in the Congress, rally people to VOTE against all these socialists who are invading every aspect of outr lives. VOTE against Oabama and socialists at every level of government.

        • W WA

          You’ve got it right Sam. The only salvation this country has available is to vote out the liberal Marxist fools and vote in real Constitutional conservatives. And that means waking up the apathetic, informing the useful idiots and shutting off the freebies for those who have the ability to carry their own weight.
          Yesterday, Christmas dinner with relatives, a pro Obama fool across the table from me – an able bodied carpenter, who hasn’t worked in three years because he has refused numerous jobs because they were not up to his standards – stated that the problem with this country is that some people have too much. Unfortunately, he reflects the attitude and intellect of a huge portion of the voting public.

      Why don’ t you seek help, the mental type. You are delusional. There is no threat by the EPA, it protects air and water you moron. Maybe you like smog and polluted water. More people die from “bad” water, all over the world, then all the wars in history. You are lucky that you live in a free country, where speech is protected, or your speech, any where else, would lead to your incarceration. Who the hell are you to ask people to take up arms against your country. Grow up and get a life! I will definitively forward your remarks to the US Attorney.

        rigarfunkel,
        The EPA is an enemy of this country when they do things like shut down farming in Ca. because of the dust that the tractors make while tilling there fields, and the list goes on.
        When idiots like Gore say that we must reduce carbon dioxide because its causing this make believe “global warming” what a crock of $h!* HELLO! plants breath carbon dioxide.
        The EPA with the help of Nancy Pelosi (who by the way made millions from selling the water to developers up north) in an effort to protect a small insignificant fish that’s not even native to the environment that it was introduced into the aqueduct system in northern and central Ca. that irrigates a large portion of Ca. agricultural has been for the most part shut down causing the loss of millions of acre’s of nut, fruit and vegetables causing not only food shortages and higher prices, but also has created server dust conditions.
        Yes my friend you need to do a little research into “EPA abuses”
        The EPA is more about controlling land than protecting it.

        • Roger

          I agree with much of what you say in that the EPA has been exceeding their mandate by a wide margin, probably to please Obama. If they continue with their new regulations on emissions the cost of electricity could skyrocket. Eventually we are going to have to conserve which is far better than carbon tax or credits being traded.

          I disagree with Carbon credits and carbon taxes, but after taking courses in both Climatology and Meteorology I do believe in Global Warming. Glaciers are in retreat around the world including Antarctica while the arctic has more open water every year and the permafrost has moved North over 300 miles in the past few decades. In my life winter in Michigan has shortened between 5 and 6 weeks based on when specific lakes freeze over till there is open water showing in the spring.

          Also 2010 is now tied for the warmest year on record with 2005. (watch out for line wrap) http://www.noaanews.noaa.gov/stories2011/20110112_globalstats.html 11 of the hottest years on record have occurred since the year 2000. http://www.economist.com/blogs/dailychart/2010/12/climate_change

          The only other times that CO2 has increased ahead of the warming we ended up with mass extinctions, but those were hundreds of millions of years ago. One other thing we have discovered is that some past warmings including the last one about 10 to 12 thousand years ago, only took a decade or two, rather than centuries or millennia.

These excesses are wrecking our economy and costing millions of jobs. The EPA has become a very useful tool for the Marxists in power to turn this country into a socialistic dictatorship. Their motto is, Today the US and tomorrow the world.”

I can hear you now, guns kill people but, so do cars, do you believe in car control? We the people not a bunch of idiots in DC living off us, making laws they don’t live by. The obozo health care bill? The EPA has to approve your home before you can sell it, and then pay 3.5 tax to the government for selling your own property, bet you didn’t know that was in the health care bill? Grow up, live free or be a robot for the dictatorship in DC.

      • sandra darelius

      • ldmstr

        While the EPA was needed to press forward environmental policies that corrected much of the pollution issues in the past, it is now a political arm of the environmental moverment. Any law that can not be passed in Congress is immediately brought to the EPA to bring forward a new regulation. Yes the EPa has doen good work in the past but now its regulations are too far reaching and they intend on destroying our energy economy and replace it with technology that is not ready to take up the slack. Solar is not able to create the necessary amount pf power to cover the destruction of 85% of our power resources in coal. Natural gas is the stepping stone needed to get away from coal fired plants with coal being converted to natural gas to power them. Solar City is an example of Solar power gone wrong. This facility covers thousands of acres and destroys desert habitat that you enviros so worry about.

        Hydrogen is the fuel of the future and we will still need oil to produce the chemicals we will need. Hydrogen is available and has been used for over a hundred years but the goverment in supporting oil has neglected hydrogen. Technology exists to produce large amounts of hydrogen from waste water, and sea water therefore not requiring us to use fresh water in the process. These systems can be built in smaller power producing plants in large cities providing regional power rather thanhaving to build large plants that take up hundreds of acres of land. Hydrogen fuel has been proven to fuel automobiles and transportation but we have not forced the issue with government making it manditory that industry begin converting their industries.

        So believing that the EPA is not a threat is like saying your local police could never be a threat to its citizens andignoring the edvidence that some cops are just bad.

        • jim letourneau

          Cops and EPA are bad, American Lung Asco. Damn thugs, you are a very persceptive guy.

Open your eyes to the truth that neither Political Party, the Demon-Crats or Republi-Cants, care about America! It is all a Power Game to them and the Elitist, who pull the Puppets Strings!
        But I don’t think we will have an Election at all, and “Presi-Debt Obama” will have some Excuse to Declare Martial Law!! Obama will gladly do away with the “Constitution & the Bill of Rights” to become America’s 1st Dictator-in-Chief and will call on the UN to send Foreign Troops to Combat the American People!!!!!! He will also usher in the NWO that is Supported by both Major Political Parties!

      • http://None BenFox

        Can only happen if the Demo’s don’t vote the dead, those who aren’t legal and control the vote. I was in charge of voting in my area and the day of the elections they wanted to ship me to another area because my area is full of illegals and I wouldn’t let them vote, wow, If I lived in Mexico I couldn’t vote or own property, how screwed up are we?

    • Dick Fowler

      Each of you realize that Obama has an ‘enemies list’ and from his first year in office has requested that family members including children, friends and other associates should turn in the names of anyone that appear ‘belligerent’. Enter ‘grjarfunkel’ who claims he will do just that! Be wary of this neo-left socialist.

      With virtually no news coverage Obama last week signed a bill (prepared in secrecy) that is the model of that used by Hugo Chavez in Venezuela to destroy their constitutional laws. Does this fit in to Obama’s famous ‘enemies list’? Will it be used to arrest American citizens that may demonstrate against his re-election? If it appears Obama will lose the 2012 elections will he fabricate a reason to send in the military and intern those who oppose him, thereby nullifying the 2012 elections? This is exactly what Chavez did.

      National Defense Authorization Bill of 2012 (NDAA) authorizes the president to have power of dictators according to the ACLU: “to order the military to pick up and imprison U.S. citizens, without charging them or putting them on trial. They may be held indefinitely” The provisions (specifically included by Obama) apply to any citizen who supports or aids “belligerent” acts against the United States and is determined exclusively at the whim of the president, without congressional approval or oversight.

      The National Emergency Centers Act (HR 64) ordered FEMA in 2009 to build massive camps (again media silence) near military bases under the guise of being for national emergencies. They are now ready and it is reported can handle thousands of citizens.

      Be afraid. The military will be able to knock down your door without a warrant or even a cause, haul you off to an internment camp with out due process, and hold you there for the rest of your life without ever charging you with anything.

      Is this a blown up conspiracy theory? I think not. Start by reading the ‘Cloward-Piven Strategy’ and pieces of the puzzle will come together. You have reason to fear. The boogie man is real but does not live under your bed…he lives in the White House.

        HR 1540

        SEC. 1022. MILITARY CUSTODY FOR FOREIGN AL-QAEDA TERRORISTS.

        (a) Custody Pending Disposition Under Law of War-
        (1) IN GENERAL- Except as provided in paragraph (4), the Armed Forces of the United States shall hold a person described in paragraph (2) who is captured in the course of hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40) in military custody pending disposition under the law of war.
        (2) COVERED PERSONS- The requirement in paragraph (1) shall apply to any person whose detention is authorized under section 1021 who is determined–
        (A) to be a member of, or part of, al-Qaeda or an associated force that acts in coordination with or pursuant to the direction of al-Qaeda; and
        (B) to have participated in the course of planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners.
        (3) DISPOSITION UNDER LAW OF WAR- For purposes of this subsection, the disposition of a person under the law of war has the meaning given in section 1021(c), except that no transfer otherwise described in paragraph (4) of that section shall be made unless consistent with the requirements of section 1028.
        (4) WAIVER FOR NATIONAL SECURITY- The President may waive the requirement of paragraph (1) if the President submits to Congress a certification in writing that such a waiver is in the national security interests of the United States.
        (b) Applicability to United States Citizens and Lawful Resident Aliens-
        (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.
        (2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.
        (c) Implementation Procedures-
        (1) IN GENERAL- Not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the President shall issue, and submit to Congress, procedures for implementing this section.
        (2) ELEMENTS- The procedures for implementing this section shall include, but not be limited to, procedures as follows:
        (A) Procedures designating the persons authorized to make determinations under subsection (a)(2) and the process by which such determinations are to be made.
        (B) Procedures providing that the requirement for military custody under subsection (a)(1) does not require the interruption of ongoing surveillance or intelligence gathering with regard to persons not already in the custody or control of the United States.
        (C) Procedures providing that a determination under subsection (a)(2) is not required to be implemented until after the conclusion of an interrogation which is ongoing at the time the determination is made and does not require the interruption of any such ongoing interrogation.
        (D) Procedures providing that the requirement for military custody under subsection (a)(1) does not apply when intelligence, law enforcement, or other Government officials of the United States are granted access to an individual who remains in the custody of a third country.
        (E) Procedures providing that a certification of national security interests under subsection (a)(4) may be granted for the purpose of transferring a covered person from a third country if such a transfer is in the interest of the United States and could not otherwise be accomplished.
        (d) Authorities- Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect the existing criminal enforcement and national security authorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other domestic law enforcement agency with regard to a covered person, regardless whether such covered person is held in military custody.
        (e) Effective Date- This section shall take effect on the date that is 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and shall apply with respect to persons described in subsection (a)(2) who are taken into the custody or brought under the control of the United States on or after that effective date.

        Nowhere in this law is there a statement that the United can or will detain American citizens under this statute. Under section 1022 (b) (1)
        “(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”
        It also does not extend to resident aliens residing in the United States. I’m surprised American citizens are so gullable as to read the lies being issued by bloggers who perpetuate the idea that we are detaining American citizens without charges or without legal representation.

        Nowhere in the article http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/15/americans-face-guantanamo-detention-obama is there a referance to sections of the article. They cut and paste the parts they want to make the case against the law. But in the section I mentioned above it specifically states no American citizen can be detained under this law. If Obama as president of the United States changes the status of a detainee caught on the field of battle and is found out to be a citizen of the United States, that citizen can be held as a combatant, and can be brought before a military court. That is covered in a presidential order signed by Obama early in his presidency.

        So please read these bills before you fall for these bloggers who pass gas over the web. Remeber these people are against the war, which is admirable till you see their tactics. They use misinformation to mislead the American people and we are gullable enough to listen. Educate yourself before making statements on policy. Don’t be one of the “useful idiots” Marx talked about in the his manifesto.

        A key element in the plot to overthrow the US Republic is using public education to undermine the morals of the citizens, destroy the family unit, and to promote mass corruption in business and government. Those goals have been accomplished.

      Death by regulation rather than by the sword. Remove Obama and 70 members of the Socialist Party who sit in the U.S. Congress.

    • Red

      Our dictator is doing everything possible to prevent development of our own oil and gas resources through over zealous regulation. He wants us to remain dependent upon the Middle Eastern Muslim states for oil so the river of cash we pay to them for oil will continue to support their terrorist activities around the world. With the development of the oil and gas reserves in our vast oil shale deposits combined with the new oil sand pipeline from Canada and our own offshore resources we could be very near self-sufficiency over the next decade. That in itself will deal a knockout blow to the Islamic controlled OPEC cartel. VOTE for self-sufficiency, VOTE against Obama.

    • Fruitcake

      Not Left wing tools but progressive globalist tools. These people include the Right wing Republican establishment and the Neo-conservatives as well as the Left wing Democrat establishment, the communists, and socialists. If they support the Federal Reserve and yeild to Facist lobbying from Big Buisiness and Big Public Sector Unions over their oath to defend the US Constitution and the Rights of the People, then these government controls are needed to break the people’s will. They are the different sides of the same coin and their goal is to confuse and divide the people for processing and consumption.

      National Defense Authorization Bill of 2012 (NDAA) approved by congress and quitely signed into law last week by Obama authorizes the president to have power of a dictator: “to order the military to pick up and imprison U.S. citizens, without charging them or putting them on trial. They may be held indefinitely”

      The provisions (specifically included by Obama) apply to any citizen who supports or aids “belligerent” acts against the United States and is determined exclusively at the whim of the president. HLS under the Patriot Act state that a ‘belligerent’ includes someone who has guns, someone who has ammunition that is weatherproofed, and someone who has more than seven days of food in their house.

      You would think our military would stand against with us but if you examine what has been going on in the last 3 years you will note that Obama has either ffired, retired or moved both key generals and admirals and replaced them with his puppets.

      Those of us who have guns stand alone and are matched with overwhelming force.

        HR 1540

        SEC. 1022. MILITARY CUSTODY FOR FOREIGN AL-QAEDA TERRORISTS.

        (a) Custody Pending Disposition Under Law of War-
        (1) IN GENERAL- Except as provided in paragraph (4), the Armed Forces of the United States shall hold a person described in paragraph (2) who is captured in the course of hostilities authorized by the Authorization for Use of Military Force (Public Law 107-40) in military custody pending disposition under the law of war.
        (2) COVERED PERSONS- The requirement in paragraph (1) shall apply to any person whose detention is authorized under section 1021 who is determined–
        (A) to be a member of, or part of, al-Qaeda or an associated force that acts in coordination with or pursuant to the direction of al-Qaeda; and
        (B) to have participated in the course of planning or carrying out an attack or attempted attack against the United States or its coalition partners.
        (3) DISPOSITION UNDER LAW OF WAR- For purposes of this subsection, the disposition of a person under the law of war has the meaning given in section 1021(c), except that no transfer otherwise described in paragraph (4) of that section shall be made unless consistent with the requirements of section 1028.
        (4) WAIVER FOR NATIONAL SECURITY- The President may waive the requirement of paragraph (1) if the President submits to Congress a certification in writing that such a waiver is in the national security interests of the United States.
        (b) Applicability to United States Citizens and Lawful Resident Aliens-
        (1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.
        (2) LAWFUL RESIDENT ALIENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to a lawful resident alien of the United States on the basis of conduct taking place within the United States, except to the extent permitted by the Constitution of the United States.
        (c) Implementation Procedures-
        (1) IN GENERAL- Not later than 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, the President shall issue, and submit to Congress, procedures for implementing this section.
        (2) ELEMENTS- The procedures for implementing this section shall include, but not be limited to, procedures as follows:
        (A) Procedures designating the persons authorized to make determinations under subsection (a)(2) and the process by which such determinations are to be made.
        (B) Procedures providing that the requirement for military custody under subsection (a)(1) does not require the interruption of ongoing surveillance or intelligence gathering with regard to persons not already in the custody or control of the United States.
        (C) Procedures providing that a determination under subsection (a)(2) is not required to be implemented until after the conclusion of an interrogation which is ongoing at the time the determination is made and does not require the interruption of any such ongoing interrogation.
        (D) Procedures providing that the requirement for military custody under subsection (a)(1) does not apply when intelligence, law enforcement, or other Government officials of the United States are granted access to an individual who remains in the custody of a third country.
        (E) Procedures providing that a certification of national security interests under subsection (a)(4) may be granted for the purpose of transferring a covered person from a third country if such a transfer is in the interest of the United States and could not otherwise be accomplished.
        (d) Authorities- Nothing in this section shall be construed to affect the existing criminal enforcement and national security authorities of the Federal Bureau of Investigation or any other domestic law enforcement agency with regard to a covered person, regardless whether such covered person is held in military custody.
        (e) Effective Date- This section shall take effect on the date that is 60 days after the date of the enactment of this Act, and shall apply with respect to persons described in subsection (a)(2) who are taken into the custody or brought under the control of the United States on or after that effective date.

        Nowhere in this law is there a statement that the United can or will detain American citizens under this statute. Under section 1022 (b) (1)
        “(1) UNITED STATES CITIZENS- The requirement to detain a person in military custody under this section does not extend to citizens of the United States.”
        It also does not extend to resident aliens residing in the United States. I’m surprised American citizens are so gullable as to read the lies being issued by bloggers who perpetuate the idea that we are detaining American citizens without charges or without legal representation.

        Nowhere in the article http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2011/dec/15/americans-face-guantanamo-detention-obama is there a referance to sections of the article. They cut and paste the parts they want to make the case against the law. But in the section I mentioned above it specifically states no American citizen can be detained under this law. If Obama as president of the United States changes the status of a detainee caught on the field of battle and is found out to be a citizen of the United States, that citizen can be held as a combatant, and can be brought before a military court. That is covered in a presidential order signed by Obama early in his presidency.

        So please read these bills before you fall for these bloggers who pass gas over the web. Remeber these people are against the war, which is admirable till you see their tactics. They use misinformation to mislead the American people and we are gullable enough to listen. Educate yourself before making statements on policy. Don’t be one of the “useful idiots” Marx talked about in the his manifesto.

They come in after floods, they monitor air pollution and PCPs in the water, the check for overflows from water treatment plants, they do all the things that every Western and civilized nation require. By the way oil prices have been steady for months and natural gas prices per BTU has been low for a long time. I am sure you won’t starve or die of exposure.

He wants the U.S. to remanin dependent on Middle Eastern oil to keep the money flowing into the Islamic states. He is our enemy in no uncertain terms and he supports the Muslim brotherhood.

    They started with the Patriot Act to eliminate the constitution and now National Defense Act to put the nail in every freedom loving America that opposes them, even kill us if they desire and it be legal. We must face the facts folks, we aren’t headed for a dictatorship it has arrived and is thriving now. What we thought was our best hope the Republicans threw us all under the bus by overwhelmingly passing this last act that puts us all in jeopardy. I’m am seriously doubting we are going to have an election this next year after the quick passing of this last nail in the coffin that I think prepared the way for a total and complete takeover of our way of living. I am also very concerned the reason they speedily passed this bill is because they have kept back the truth from us as to how this country is being denied money from the IMF and World Bank. So, they know it will be unacceptable to the public at large and fully believe there will be blood in the streets in opposition to the dictatorship. Oh well, call me a nut if you will but I do an awful lot of study of things going on and this is how I see it. Know this nobody hopes I am completely wrong than I do myself. I have children and grandchildren I love dearly and do not want to see living like what I believe they have planned.

    You are all right except for a few people. We need to vote for the best person in the primaries and hope we get the best one. Then whomever gets chosen we will need to all support. We dare not throw our votes away on write ins or anything but the strongest republican. I am voting for Ron Paul. I want to audit the fed. He makes more sense to me and will bring all the troops home from everywhere and save us money. We are not the police of the world. We are not the bank that has to support the world either. I will vote Ron Paul in the primaries and hope he gets on the ballot for 2012. He’s the only consistent one who does not have a career in the circus waiting for him because he is the best flip flopper. That can go to Romney and Gingrich. No matter what they say they are big health care law guys. My opinion.

  • Julian

    I know it is frustrating but like you I keep trying. The fact is you cannot hold a discussion with someone whos mind is made up to the point they do not listen. The EPA is a perfect example of something good that fell into the trap of “Power corrupts”, now they have been taken over by zealots who just want to weild this power and have lost sight of thier purpose. Instead of lets make things better and safer for everyone it’s lets see what else we can do and not worry about the big picture. Do you realize if instead of wasteing money on ‘green energy’ that has been an uter waste excluding the graft. This money could have been used to make our coal plants the most efficient cleanest in the world.

The epa is like the dot, dod, doa, doe and the pentagon. They are all runaway nightmares and like giant cancers they keep spreading thru the liberal democrat idiots. Key below for democrats; department of defense, department of transportation, department of agriculture, and the Department of Education (not) and the giant of of course is the Department of Commerce whic allows the liberal to rule in favor of such gross interpretations and foolishly allows the departments to make such stupid executive orders and Federal Court rulings. The Bill of Rights and the U.S. Constitution are not being followed and represented as the Federal Papers show us. Lawyers and judges are even more dangerous than the Executive branch and the H. of Reps., and the Senate together. Reasons; Most of them are in over their heads and have taken on a pay level with greater priviledge and responsibility then they are prepared for nor educated enough to comprehend the complexities of the true meaning of DEMOCRACY.
    When you read the Federal Papers you will discover just how difficult and complicated they are. Because they were written and discussed by very bright and learned people. (even if several of them were lawyers)!! These lawyers studied long before the universities and law schools were infiltraited and filled with very liberal professors who have and teach their OWN meanings and biased thinking into the curiculum in todays higher institutions of learning.
    Same with journalism! What happened to the truth? The NYT’s caption on the font page everyday says to us “All the news that is fit to print” (BUT TO [THEIR LIKING] IS THE SUB TITLE!!! pAUL cOWAN

      Kay, sad to say, it’s happening all over the US, some voting the dead, some allowing illegals to vote, even though you can’t own property or vote in Mexico. A bunch of little god people who forgot who gave us freedom and who has rules to live by. God Bless:

    If OBAMA GOVEENMENT & THE DEMOCRATS & HIS CONSPIRATORS TRAUITORS ARE NOT OVERTHROWN & EXECUTED BY MARCH 2012 THERE WON’T BE A USA TO SAVE. OUR CAPITALIST SYSTEM & DOLLAR WILL COLLAPSE

  • Jim Herendeen

    Ever notice that when Obama does something or makes a decision he makes the wrong one or does the opposite of what most common sense people would decide? Can’t make a budget,doesn’t listen to his generals,his economists or congress. No oil being drilled,no nuclear plants being built,coal and coal burning plants being regulated out of existence,illegals not being picked up and perhaps being able to vote(resistance to South Carolina voter Id bill),suing Arizona over immigration bill,spending the country into oblivion,no jobs programs and using EPA,Justice Dept. and other departments to determine policy,politicizing the Supreme Ct and the unending list of abuses by government. What does common sense lead you to believe is happening to this country? We are broke,no jobs and little hope of going back to the good ole days. Prepare people it isn’t over yet. If he is reelected he will finish destroying what he has started with help from the czars, Soros and all those organizations international and local that have backed him and were responsible for writing the 2400 page health care bill that will not cover everyone,cost more and provide less. You all know it,feel it and dread it. There is nowhere to go that is better. We’ll have to fight it here or end up being miserable under it.

    The simple keys to a successful life are easy to remember, and pay huge dividends if employed.
    1.)Capitalize on your assets.
    2.)Be aware of your limitations.
    3.)and Moderation in all things.
    The USA has really vast supplies of Oil and Natural gas (Much more than OPEC) = assets.
    We have the ability to extract that oil and gas. = ability drill and process both Gas and oil.
    By using our own fuel Resources instead of paying top dollar for imports from countries that hate us, we can save Billions of Dollars for Americans. We can also sell some of our bountiful
    fuel resources to a energy hungry world at a handsome profit for Americans.
    See how easy it is to capitalize on your resources for fun and profit? So why aren’t we doing it?
    ‘Cause Obama wants to break our Nations back and sell us into the slavery of a third world Nation.
    Lock and Load…see ya on the other side.
