    as I have said before, i normally despise government in business, but this isnt bananas, price of bananas goes up, we can simply choose not to eat them

    this is the lifeblood of the entire country

    Remember prohibition? You do know shutting down the stills was more about forcing the public to switch to gasoline, than it was keeping people sober, don't you? Its our life's blood because of Big Oil, we don't need to keep drinking the Koolaid.

    I'm thinking they do have a large reserver and stuff just sitting around. My Brother in law works at a refinery. they used to put in all kinds of crazy shifts for rebuilding it from scratch almost 2x a year. now they do it all in the course of a normal work day. With less pepole on staff.

    -Do oil companies need tax subsidies? That is what I think is the real 'finger' to the American people. Not only do your tax dollars go to subsidize companies that make massive profits, you also get to pay out the a$$ at the pump!

    Do you know how the subsidies work? Or are you just complaining because you think they are given every break in the book?
    I imagine there are a but a few posters who understand what is going on this site, even though almost everyone here will complain about them. I have yet to meet any person live and up close who after saying the same thing can not even begin to state what is being subsidized, how, or why.. just seems some like to complain.

    well, subsidies are supposed to be for companies that struggle. record profits should automatically disqualify you....

    why not mention your pill popping hero. It highlights the hypocracy of your outlook quite nicely. Trump is money grubbing such and suc h, Coulter is a Nazi in barbie disguise, but from another thread, you are legion.....

    no bow though, punk.....

    one opinion piece from a member of an environmental group, and one that, to be charitable, is written by an environmental nut job

    sorry not convinced.

    NEXT!!!

    LOL did you read the articles? Much of the info in them are not opinion, but fact. Or you could do your own search. There are tons of articles out there saying the same thing. Of course I know that "science" and "scientist" are a bad word in your lexicon, but when articles are published like these you might want to pay attention, even if the scientist involved don't follow your political leanings. Or does truth not mean anything to you unless it has passed through your political screening process?

    -Admin Notice-

    Enough of the personal shots. Any further digs, slings, or outright insults will get the deliverer some nice infraction points. In this thread, or anywhere else. You all know the rules, and if you don't, go read the damn things.

    See someone else breaking them?
    Report it. That's this thing here:[​IMG]
    Can't stand the other person? Then put the SOB on your 'ignore' list, or grow a thicker skin already.
    Just because they disagree with you, isn't a rules violation.
    Being a jackass is.

    Back to the bloody original topic.

    the writer of the first is a member of an environmental group, ergo, is disqualified to be a voice of impartial thought

    the writer of the second writes ONLY environmental articles, so, same as the first.


    its ok, you dont have to convince me, and I am not trying to convince you

    we need to build a **** ton of nuke plants, and drill everywhere there MIGHT be oil,

    for no other reason than we need to get the hell out of the middle east

    Aye, breaking that dependant relationship is of great importance; for an awful lot of post-war history has been coloured by it, mostly bringing a cargo of negative consequences along with the oil.
