The Right Needs to Grow a Set

The new energy bill has had some significant portions cut out due to Republican dissent and filibuster threats from the Left. Originally in the bill was drilling off the Pacific and Atlantic coasts, and ANWR. Opponents speak praises of Hybrid technology and other alternatives, well get me a hybrid that costs $3K less on average than a standard model without Government involvement and we’ll talk. I’m a little tired of my party constantly dropping to their knees and blowing any chance to push our agenda through. What the fuck are you so scared of? Don’t you get that this is why the Left keeps losing? Keep your promises, stay true to your ideas, and hold your fucking ground when challenged by nothing more than defeatism. So, 25 Republicans threatened to vote no, publish their names so that come Primary time they’re replaced by some actual Conservatives. The Right is a little too comfortable and it’s hurting the cause. Now we’re expected to believe a dime a gallon is a windfall profit worthy of a new tax on oil companies while Federal, State, and Local tack on $.62 per gallon. Since when has taxing a corporation ever saved a consumer money?

    Wow it’s like…tv. Only worse.

    I don’t know, I don’t really follow this closely, so I was always wishy-washy on drilling in Alaska, but only because I wasn’t sure what it would do to anything living up there. If the answer to that is not much then…I’m not sure what the hullaballoo is about. I also don’t get why the moratorium off the coasts. Unless we’re risking dropping some states into an Ocean–which seems unlikely, but will also happen eventually of its own accord–then I don’t get it.

    The way-left is running around screaming we’re in Iraq to get the oil, but we’re totally suffering on that front. And on the same hand they don’t want us to drill our own. Right…

    New energy is all well and good…but how much does that cost? If we’ve got it sure it might be more cost-effective to use but how much does it cost to develop? Drugs…those cost millions and billions of dollars and take a rather substantial number of years to be developed. Wouldn’t energy be, I dunno, in the same kind of league? And what about all the gas flowing off land-fills going unused that people either haven’t tried, or have also not been allowed to tap?

    I don’t think it’s about oil anymore I think it’s just about common sense. And a serious lack thereof. We technically have from now til forever to worry about the future, seeing as by nature it’s not hear yet and can be planned for. But we only have now to worry about now, and it is seriously sucking itself into oblivion.
