You want your economy to flourish? You want to stop wasting oil and funding terrorists? Stop the war.

Do you have any idea of the debt the U.S. is in? Do you have any clue as to how much fuels is spent daily because of this pointless war?

[sarcasm]Maybe that has nothing to do with the hole you dug for yourselves and everyone else.[/sarcasm] No it isn't just the emergence of China and India. You also bear a great responsibility for the state we're in.

As for the alaskan oil exploration...


yep...pristine indeed. All it takes is a bunch of little "oops" and...

ah the usual "oil spill" photos that "proves" we are destroying our envirnment.

what happens to oil before it was harvested? it will burst out of the ground when nature is done with the cooking process. so we stop harvesting oil, let nature take its course and it burst out of the ground making everything messy. who would we blame for that "oil spill" then.

I am well aware of how much debt the US has. are you aware that a lot of that debt can be reduced if we stop buying billions of dollars in foreign oil and instead use those dollars locally?

so are we just supposed to keep buying foreign oil and keep sending the dollars overseas then? keep funding terrorists? until you can offer actual practical technologies that are affordable by the avergage american family, we will need oil, and as I've been saying all along, I'd rather keep those dollars within the US instead of giving them to countries that are hell bent on our destruction.

will there be effects on the environment, sure, will we be able to clean it up, yes. how will we pay for it? oil profits kept locally. funds can be set up for it since the oil dollars are kept locally. rather see those dollars be used in cleaning up the environment than to see them buy bombs and pay for suicide bombers. that to me is a good trade off.

Every year more oil seeps from the ground than is spilled by humans. It's hardly as big a deal as the anti's make it out to be.

There wasn't even an oil spill in the gulf during or after Katrina, and hundreds of rigs sustained damage.

A non-point.
