IN DEFENSE OF BIG OIL

Cal Thomas has a great column about our current oil situation - loaded with undisputed facts:

  • The last refinery built in America was in 1976.
  • 85% of US off-shore oil is off-limits.
  • Some environmentally-conscience countries drilling off-shore NOW: Denmark, Norway, United Kingdom, and Australia.
  • US oil production has fallen approximately 40 percent since 1985.
  • US consumption of oil has grown by more than 30 percent since 1985.
  • There is enough oil in areas accessible to America to power more than 60 million cars for 60 years.

    And I'll add one myself - DEMOCRATS ARE NOT ENVIRONMENTALISTS. They are anti-capitalists who do not follow their own dogma and think the USA should be a second-class country.

    And no Democrat has explained how a Big Oil windfall profit tax will lower the cost of gasoline.
