The Pickens Plan
I’ve been hearing an awful lot about the Pickens Plan lately, and although I’m a little bit skeptical of its viability, I thought I’d attempt an objective look at what this former oil man is proposing. I’ve been to the site, and read through the proposal. I’m a little uncertain about his assertion that “oil production has peaked.” Suffice it to say that estimates of | Read More »
We can’t pass our way out of this crisis!
I’ll admit it. I’m getting tired of the endless stupidity of trolls trying to get us to believe the indefensible on the theory that if they repeat it enough times we will eventually give in. As Sprio Agnew would have called them, they are “Nattering Nabobs of Negativity”.
Kosovo goes Wahhabi
Between Maliki’s statements and the latest deal with Iran, there is little time or attention left to cover Saudi Arabian Wahhabism. What a pity, too, because while the cat is away, the mice do play. But unlike rather recent stories concerning Sharia law in England, this bit of news comes from the other end of Europe. Serbia, Kosovo and Albania just don’t filter into our | Read More »
A Simple Thought
Most anyone will tell you: I’m a simple guy. No, really… I’m simple. Simple thoughts, left, right, good, bad, up, down.
Recent Drilling For Oil Polls
Here is a run down of some recent polls for drilling for oil off the coast of US and the results were shocking in that even in liberal states people support drilling. Survey USA Poll New York In general, do you support or oppose drilling for oil off the coast of the United States? Support 66% Oppose 24% Other 9% Do you support or oppose | Read More »
Debunking the latest liberal myth
Liberal myths often quickly become talking points for the Democrats, and even as conservatives punch holes in them, the Left simply patches them up and floats them again. Such is the case with the latest liberal myth/Democrat talking point – that oil companies aren’t drilling on the lands they currently hold: “Big Oil is more interested in pumping up prices and pumping up their own | Read More »
Oil drops for third day because of economics 101.
As much as we all have wanted to string speculators up by their thumbs (and they do have it coming), the drop in oil over the past three days has been because of downward pressure being placed on the market by fundamentals.
Missing the whole message
It seems to me that part of the message is getting lost. The Republican part is getting effectively portrayed as believing that drilling and oil exploration is the only action to undertake. This is only possible because in the rush to embrace the correct position of dramatically increased domestic production capacity, we forgot to address a key point. A very large majority of this country | Read More »

Bush Is Right
The polls are showing that most Americans want to lift the ban on offshore drilling, and want to do it NOW. Pelosi and Reid will regret it if they continue with their leftist blather against it.
Virginia Wants To Drill – Moonbats Go Crazy
Here is where the proposed drilling would be. From The Washington Post. Right out of the box, the Post starts by misleading its readers. Energy experts, though, say Ocean City sunbathers probably won’t find themselves staring out at oil rigs anytime soon. According to the Post’s own map, the drilling would be at least 50 miles offshore. So Ocean City sunbathers will actually never see | Read More »
Caution! Stopping Wind Turbines Results in the Loss of Jobs!
This morning, I rode on a Metro subway rail on way to Glemont Station here in Maryland, I saw a strange poster slapped on wall next to automatic doors. This strange poster warned that if we were to stop building wind turbines, that would result in the loss of jobs. When I saw that, I just had to laugh out on inside. We’re in middle | Read More »
The Energy Crisis:
This is a true story. It just hasn’t happened yet.
Let the Free Market Produce More Energy
I want to begin by congratulating the entire RedState team on a great looking new version of the site, and by wishing them a happy 4th birthday. President Bush has taken an important step to lower gas prices. But now Congress needs to get out of the way and let the free market produce more energy. The U.S. is the only country in the world that refuses | Read More »
President Calls Democrats’ Bluff on Offshore Drilling
The Democrats are truly panicked and would no doubt be even more panicked if John McCain more vocally got on the GOP bandwagon over ANWR and drilling. Today, President Bush called the Democrats’ bluff on energy and the response was both predictable and telling. See here. peaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) called the move a “hoax,” while House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) said, “It’s clear | Read More »
