Dumbo’s Priorities, from Rush Limbaugh: The price of oil around the world is skyrocketing.  The Saudis are talking about ramping up their production.  How about the crisis in the Middle East?  I mean, for heaven’s sake, “a crisis is a terrible thing to waste,” right?  We have a crisis in the Middle East, we have […]

Michael Sheridan. New York Daily News, reports on a political boxing match between Bobby Gibbs and Sarah Palin.   The big punches, at least as reported, for Gibbs: “My suggestion to Sarah Palin would be to get slightly more informed as to what’s going on in and around oil drilling in this country,” Press Secretary Robert […]

James at OTB this morning examines an issue which the price of oil has been bringing to the fore, called “The Future of Suburbia”.   Now, look; I admit I pushed this one a bit off James’ intended thrust.

Lots of comment this morning, centered on the Washington Post Op-Ed of yesterday, which spends it’s time destroying three basic arguments of those against offshore drilling. However, it propagates a couple barrels of snake oil. The most offensive of the lot being that drilling would not affect prices today, and that it would be years […]

Dirty Harry Reid, and his eco-freak friends, don’t like oil and they don’t like us producing our own oil.   Dirty Harry would have us conserve out way out of current mess.  James Hamilton, Econobrowser, has posted a  long, detailed article with plenty of graphs, exploring the recent and possible future price of oil.   We simply […]

CW holds that when the economy is down, movie houses don’t do well. So why’d we have the biggest weekend ever at the movies last weekend? Something isn’t quite up to what the Democrats and their MSM minions are advertising. Yet another Obama gaff, and one the MSM will never report: “The bomb that fell […]

Apparently, anti-war protestors have worn out their welcome in Canada. Remember, I’m within earshot of most of eastern Canada, and I’ll tell you the big concern is the amount of money such people won’t be paying for healthcare services, which are already in short supply up there. I see AOL finally served a purpose. Now, […]

So, Bush steps up before the mikes yesterday and says we gotta drill… open up offshore fields… and chides congress about opening up ANWR, and what happens? Price drops $9/bbl almost at once. That’s the biggest drop in the price of oil since 1991. So, tell me again, oil haters, how our committing to drilling […]

My irony meter is melting. Kos is screaming about hate being directed at him. Amazing proof of what I’ve said in these spaces for years now; It’s not that you hate someone, but whom you hate that they object to. Think about it; What he’s complaining about is that someone’s using Kos-like tactics on Kos […]

Judith Klinghoffer over at The American Thinker, asks a timely question: What do the Saudis want? Slowly but surely it is beginning to dawn on a world mesmerized by the Democratic primary contest that an oil cartel has been picking our pocket with impunity by willfully failing to adjust its output to the additional needs […]
