Jesse Jackson

jesse-jackson-n-word-for-me-but-not-for-theeGood ‘ole Jesse Jackson … the man who LOVES to tell people how to live, what to do … attack people and sometimes ruin their careers … is the very definition of “do as I say, not as I do.”  This “man of God” has lived a very scanalous life.  Off the top of my head, he’s:

– said Obama’s “telling n-word’s how to behave” and that he wants to “cut his nuts out.” (A former slave punishment.)

– claimed Obama was “acting white”.  (Whatever that means.)

– referred to Jewish people as “hymies” and to New York City as “Hymietown”.

– cheated on his wife.

– fathered a child out of wedlock and secretly used the money of his “non-profit” Rainbow/Coalition to pay the mother $40,000 in “moving expenses”.

– money laundering, accounting scandals, Enron contributions, racketeering …

FOX should air the entire tape! It’s about time people get to know the real Jesse Jackson!

BIG OIL!

Prices at the gas pump keep climbing higher, and it’s nippin’ people in the old pocketbook. So what does Congress want to do? Tax ’em! And tax ’em again!

Oh … but they’ll set-up a nice little “trust fund” they say … please, read my column here.

How about a little homegrown?

warrantedarrestNo! Not that kind of homegrown … I’m talkin’ about OIL!

Homegrown OIL!

About 50 miles off the Florida Keys reside vast oil reserves available to be tapped by American oil companies (yeah, scary Big Oil). Dictator Fidel Castro has hooked up with China to drill there (using slant drilling techniques to pump from American territory), but Congress refuses to let Americans drill for oil in this part of the ocean. Nope! Instead, they want to TAX us, and TAX US again! (Don’t kid yourself about who really pays those taxes).

Anybody remember the seventies? Long lines at the gas pump, rapid increases in the price … good times???

This is what Congress wants. They want to bring back the energy policies of the 1970’s.

Of course there’s ANWR (Alaska National Wildlife Reserve) too. If it wasn’t for the Politicians insatiable need to get up on a podium and sell their snake oil to the citizens, we’d be supplying Americans with American oil.

“The U.S. Department of Interior (DOI), in its April, 1987 report on the oil and gas potential of the Coastal Plain,rogue9 estimated that there are billions of barrels of oil to be discovered in the area. DOI estimates that “in-place resources” range from 4.8 billion to 29.4 billion barrels of oil. Recoverable oil estimates ranges from 600 million barrels at the low end to 9.2 billion barrels at the high end. They also reported identifying 26 separate oil and gas prospects in the Coastal Plain that could each contain “super giant” fields (500 million barrels or more)” (Warriors for Truth).

What about oil shale? According to government reports, the world’s largest deposits lie in Colorado, Utah, and Wyoming. “… if fully developed, domestic shale oil extraction could free America from dependence on oil imports for 160 years” (Liberty Works)!

I could carry on and on, but you get my point: There’s oil in them there hills!

I’ll leave the affect of inflation regarding the price you pay at the pump for another time, along with the speculation bubble that is certain to burst. Today, we focus on Congress.

The Politicians are selling you snake oil, while they keep our country dependent on foreign oil. The Politicians get to keep spouting off sound bytes to create the illusion of being heroes, while YOU get to dig deeper into your family budget to buy gasoline from foreign tyrants.

I have to wonder … What would happen if Americans didn’t have to buy their oil from tyrants? I wonder if those tyrants would have less money (our own no less) to attack America, slander America, and subdue their own citizens? Hmmmm …

Again, I have to wonder … How many new American jobs would be created in drilling, refining, and delivering American Oil to Americans? How much more revenue would federal and state governments have to pilfer and spend on pet pork projects with all the new oil, and new jobs … ?

I wonder …

The ANSWER to rising gas prices is right in front of your nose! Throw the punks in Congress out, and support drilling for oil in America! Land of the free, home of the brave … remember?
