They Know What to Do

"Energy independence...The Democrats know that needs to be done...The oil companies reported the highest profits in the history of the world...I want to take those profits..."

Yep. She just revealed her heart. Forget private enterprise and private property. Government gets it all. And then the Democrats who know what needs to be done will take care of us. Not being a good singer is not a campaign issue. Wanting to expand government more and to restrict business, however, is.

Yet I don't think they do know what needs to be done. There have been no new refineries built here in decades. They don't want to drill in ANWR. Using what we have while we find viable alternative energy sources would at least halt the enriching of peoples who hate us and who use those profits to build weapons against us and to fund organizations dedicated to our destruction. But that might improve our national security. Can't have that. Nor are those who extol the virtues of everything else French ready to consider utilizing the one thing that they have actually done rather well, besides cheese and whine wine: nuclear energy.

The one thing we agree on is the need for energy independence. I just don't happen to agree that stealing from oil companies is the way to do it.

Oh don't get me started on ANWR. Miles and miles of tundra that are good for nothing but caribou grazing and everyone with a drop of liberal blood wants to fence the place off. Ticks Alaskans off to have someone from "outside" tell us what to do with the land.

ANd funny thing is, whether liberal or conservative, Democrat or Republican EVERYONE here wants to open ANWR. ANWR=money and that seems to trascend political parties and ideologies.

I would like to take their profits and fund research for alternative energy. But, you are right. The market will drive any changes needed.

Here for Click & Comment Monday, and I am so late it is Tuesday in some timezones.

Have a great week!
