Yesterday, 5:16 amThe Last Ride!!
Back on January 9th, a group of Pekin, Illinois bikers were riding west on I-74 when they saw a girl about to jump off the Murray Baker Bridge. So they stopped.
George, their leader, a big burly man of 53, gets off his Harley, walks through a group of gawkers, past the State Trooper who was trying to talk her down off the railing, and says,
"Hey Baby.....whatcha doin' up there on that railin'?"
She says tearfully, "I'm going to commit suicide!!"
While he didn't want to appear "sensitive," George also didn't want to miss this "be-a-legend" opportunity either so he asked ..."Well, before you jump, Honey-Babe...why don't you give ole George here your best last kiss?"
So, with no hesitation at all, she leaned back over the railing and did just that ... and it was a long, deep, lingering kiss followed immediately by another even better one.
After they breathlessly finished, George gets a big thumbs-up approval from his biker-buddies, the onlookers, and even the State Trooper, and then says,
"Wow! That was the best kiss I have ever had, Honey! That's a real talent you're wasting, Sugar Shorts. You could be famous if you rode with me. Why the hell are you committing suicide?"
"My parents don't like me dressing up like a girl."
It's still unclear whether she jumped or was pushed.

May 9, 2013, 5:48 pmA German's View on Islam
An email I received from a friend.
Not only a Germans view, but a lot of other nationalities, including American citizens for many other nations. What I don't understand is why our leaders up on the hill don't look at things this way.
A German's View on Islam - worth reading. This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist. A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism.
'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the specter of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who march It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill. It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous. Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant.. China 's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points: Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence. Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany , they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun..
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.
Now Islamic prayers have been introduced into Toronto and other public schools in Ontario, and, yes, in Ottawa too while the Lord's Prayer was removed (due to being so offensive?). The Islamic way may be peaceful for the time being in our country until the fanatics move in. And we are silent.......
May 8, 2013, 4:07 amMiss Lube Rack 1955
You are not READY for this. Who Knew?
_Nancy D'Alesandro was the daughter of the mayor of Baltimore and the grand daughter of the governor of Maryland who was sent to jail for political corruption. _
_She married poor old Mr. Pelosi and came west where she helped run Jerry Brown's first campaign for governor and then got on to the Board of Supervisors for the City and County of San Francisco. _
_We used to go to <snip>tail parties where she was schmoozing various politicos. We would go into the men's restroom to talk about the fact that she was the absolute, most astounding, quintessential world class air head we had ever seen. (Nothing has changed, she still is dumber than dirt. Totally clueless).
She also was Miss Lube Rack in 1955.

If you are catholic, don't be offended!!
A married Irishman went into the confessional and said to his priest, 'I almost had an affair with another woman.'
The priest said, 'What do you mean, almost?'
The Irishman said, 'Well, we got undressed and rubbed together but then I stopped.'
The priest said, 'Rubbing together is the same as putting it in. You're not to see that woman again. For your penance say five Hail Mary's and put $50 in the poor box.'
The Irishman left the confessional, said his prayers and then walked over to the poor box.
He paused for a moment and then started to leave.
The priest, who was watching, quickly ran over to him saying, 'I saw that. You didn't put any money in the poor box!'
The Irishman replied, 'Yeah, but I rubbed the $50 on the box and, according to you, that's the same as putting it in!'
There once was a religious young woman who went to Confession. Upon entering the confessional, she said, 'Forgive me, Father, for I have sinned.'
The priest said, 'Confess your sins and be forgiven.'
The young woman said, 'Last night my boyfriend made mad passionate love to me seven times.'
The priest thought long and hard and then said, 'Squeeze seven lemons into a glass and then drink the juice.'
The young woman asked, 'Will this cleanse me of my sins?'
The priest said, 'No, but it will wipe that smile off of your face.'
Muldoon lived alone in the Irish countryside with only a pet dog for company. One day the dog died and Muldoon went to the parish priest and asked, 'Father, my dog is dead. Could ya' be sayin' a mass for the poor creature?'
Father Patrick replied, 'I'm afraid not, we cannot have services for an animal in the church. But there are some Baptists down the lane and there's no tellin' what they believe. Maybe they'll do something for the creature.'
Muldoon said, 'I'll go right away, Father. Do ya' think $5,000 is enough to donate to them for the service?'
Father Patrick exclaimed, 'Sweet Mary, Mother of Jesus! Why didn't ya' tell me the dog was Catholic?
Father O'Malley answers the phone and hears. 'Hello, is this Father O'Malley?'
'This is the IRS. Can you help us?' 'I can!'
'Do you know a Ted Houlihan?' 'I do!'
'Is he a member of your congregation?' 'He is!'
'Did he donate $10,000 to the church?' 'He will.'
An elderly man walks into a confessional. The following conversation ensues:
Man: 'I am 92 years old, have a wonderful wife of 70 years, many children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. Yesterday I picked up two college girls hitch-hiking. We went to a motel where I had sex with each of them three times.'
Priest: 'Are you sorry for your sins?' Man: 'What sins?'
Priest: 'What kind of a Catholic are you?' Man: 'I'm Jewish.'
Priest: 'Why are you telling me all this?' Man: 'I'm 92 years old . . . . I'm telling everybody!'
An elderly man goes into a brothel and tells the madam he would like a young girl for the night. Surprised, she looks at the ancient man and asks how old he is.
'I'm 90 years old,' he says. '90?' replies the woman. 'Don't you realize you've had it?' 'Oh, sorry,' says the old man. 'How much do I owe you?'
An elderly man went to his doctor and said, 'Doc, I think I'm getting senile. Several times lately I have forgotten to zip up.' 'That's not senility,' replied the doctor. 'Senility is when you forget to zip down.'
A woman was having a passionate affair with an Irish inspector from a pest-control company. One afternoon they were carrying on in the bedroom together when her husband arrived home unexpectedly.
'Quick,' said the woman to the lover, 'into the closet!' and she pushed him in the closet stark naked.
The husband, however, became suspicious and, after a search of the bedroom, discovered the man in the closet. 'Who are you?' he asked him.
'I'm an inspector from Bugs-B-Gone,' said the exterminator. 'What are you doing in there?' the husband asked.
'I'm investigating a complaint about an infestation of moths,' the man replied.
'And where are your clothes?' asked the husband.
The man looked down at himself and said, 'Those little <snip>s! '
Wife: 'What are you doing?' Husband: Nothing.
Wife: 'Nothing . . . ? You've been reading our marriage certificate for an hour.'
Husband: 'I was looking for the expiration date.'
Wife : 'Do you want dinner?' Husband: 'Sure! What are my choices?' Wife: 'Yes or no.'
Girl: 'When we get married, I want to share all your worries, troubles and lighten your burden.'
Boy: 'It's very kind of you, darling, but I don't have any worries or troubles.'
Girl: 'Well, that's because we aren't married yet.'
------------------------------ Son: 'Mum, when I was on the bus with Dad this morning, he told me to give up my seat to a lady.'
Mom: 'Well, you have done the right thing.'
Son: 'But mum, I was sitting on daddy's lap.'
A newly married man asked his wife, 'Would you have married me if my father hadn't left me a fortune?'
'Honey,' the woman replied sweetly, 'I'd have married you, NO MATTER WHO LEFT YOU A FORTUNE!'
A wife asked her husband: 'What do you like most in me, my pretty face or my sexy body?'
He looked at her from head to toe and replied: 'I like your sense of humor!'
Husbands are husbands
A man was sitting reading his papers when his wife hit him round the head with a frying pan. 'What was that for?' the man asked. The wife replied, 'That was for the piece of paper with the name Jenny on it that I found in your pants pocket'. The man then said, 'When I was at the races last week, Jenny was the name of the horse I bet on.' The wife apologized and went on with the housework. Three days later the man is watching TV when his wife bashes him on the head with an even bigger frying pan knocking him unconscious. Upon re-gaining consciousness, the man asked why she had hit again. Wife replied. 'Your horse phoned'
April 19, 2013, 5:48 amGun Lessons 122 Years Later!!
Sent to me by a friend.
Subject: FW: Gun lessons 122 years later?
Think about this!
December 29, 2012 marked the 122nd Anniversary of the murder of 297 Sioux Indians at Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota. These 297 people, in their winter camp, were murdered by federal agents and members of the 7th Cavalry who had come to confiscate their firearms“for their own safety and protection”.
The slaughter began after the majority of the Sioux had peacefully turned in their firearms. The Calvary began shooting, and managed to wipe out the entire camp. Two hundred of the 297 victims were women and children. About 40 members of the 7th Cavalry were killed, but over half of them were victims of fratricide from the Hotchkiss guns of their overzealous comrades-in-arms. Twenty members of the 7th Cavalry's death squad were deemed “National Heroes” and were awarded the Medal of Honor for their acts of ‘heroism’.
Wounded Knee was among the first federally backed gun confiscation attempts in United States history. It ended in the senseless murder of 297 people.
Before you jump on the emotionally charged bandwagon for gun-control, take a moment to reflect on the real purpose of the Second Amendment, the right of the people to take up arms in defense of themselves, their families, and property in the face of an invading army or an oppressive government.
The argument that the Second Amendment only applies to hunting and target shooting is asinine. When the United States Constitution was drafted, hunting was an everyday chore carried out by men and women to put meat on the table each night and target shooting was an unheard of concept. Musket balls were a precious commodity and were certainly not wasted on target shooting. The Second Amendment was written by people who fled oppressive and tyrannical regimes in Europe and it refers to the right of American citizens to be armed, should such tyranny arise in the United States.
As time goes forward, the average citizen in the United States continually loses little chunks of personal freedom or “liberty”. Far too many times, unjust gun control bills were passed and signed into law under the guise of “for your safety or protection”. The Patriot Act signed into law by G.W. Bush, was expanded and continues under Barack Obama. It is just one of many examples of American citizens being stripped of their rights and privacy. Now, the Right to Keep and Bear Arms is on the table and will most likely be attacked to facilitate the path for the removal of our firearms, all in the name of safety.
Before we blindly accept whatever new firearms legislation that is about to be doled out, we should stop and think about something for just one minute. Evil does exist in our world. It always has and always will. Throughout history evil people have committed evil acts. In the Bible one of the first stories is that of Cain killing Abel. We cannot legislate evil into extinction.
Evil exists all around us, but looking back at the historical record of the past 200 years, across the globe, evil and malevolence is most often found in the hands of those with the power, the governments. That greatest human tragedies on record and the largest loss of innocent human life can be attributed to governments. Who do the governments always target? Scapegoats and enemies within their own border, but only after they have been disarmed to the point where they are no longer a threat. Ask any Native American, and they will tell you it was inferior technology and lack of arms that contributed to their demise. Ask any Armenian why it was so easy for the Turks to exterminate millions of them and they will answer “We were disarmed before it happened”. Ask any Jew what Hitler’s first step prior to the mass murders of the Holocaust was. The confiscation of firearms from the people.
Wounded Knee is the prime example of why the Second Amendment exists and why we should vehemently resist any attempts to infringe on our Rights to Bear Arms. Without the Second Amendment we will be stripped of any ability to defend ourselves.

March 31, 2013, 6:41 amHistory Lesson
For those that don't know about history ... Here is a condensed version:
Humans originally existed as members of small bands of nomadic
hunters/gatherers. They lived on deer in the mountainsduring the summer and would go
to the coast and live on fish and lobster in the winter.
The two most important events in all of history were the invention of beer
and the invention of the wheel The wheel was invented to get man to the
beer. These were the foundation of modern civilization and together were the
catalyst for the splitting of humanity into two distinct subgroups:
1 . Liberals
Once beer was discovered, it required grain and that was the beginning of
agriculture. Neither the glass bottle nor aluminum can were invented yet,
so while our early humans were sittingaround waiting for them to be
invented, they just stayed close to the brewery. That's how villages were formed.
Some men spent their days tracking and killing animals to BBQ at night
while they were drinking beer. This was the beginning of what is known as the
Other men who were weaker and less skilled at hunting learned to live off
the conservatives by showing up for the nightly BBQ's and doing the
sewing, fetching, and hair dressing.This was the beginning of the Liberal
Some of these liberal men eventually evolved into women. They became known
as girlie-men. Some noteworthy liberal achievements include the
domestication of cats, the invention of group therapy, group hugs, and the concept of
Democratic voting to decide how to divide the meat and beer that
Over the years conservatives came to be symbolized by the largest, most
powerful land animal on earth, the elephant. Liberals are symbolized by the
jackass for obvious reasons.
Modern liberals like imported beer (with lime added), but most prefer
white wine or imported bottled water. They eat raw fish
but like their beef well done. Sushi, tofu, and French food are standard
liberal fare.. Another interesting evolutionary side note: most of their
women have higher testosterone levels than their men.Most social workers,
personal injury attorneys, journalists, dreamers in Hollywood and group
therapists are liberals. Liberals invented the designated hitter rule because it
wasn't fair to make the pitcher also bat.
Conservatives drink domestic beer, mostly Bud or Miller. They eat red meat
and still provide for their women. Conservatives are big game hunters,
rodeo cowboys, lumberjacks, construction workers, firemen, medical doctors,
police officers, engineers, corporate executives, athletes, members of the
military, airline pilots and generally anyone who works productively.
Conservatives who own companies hire other conservatives who want to work
for a living.
Liberals produce little. They prefer to govern the producers....
and decide what to do with the production. Liberals believe Europeans are
more enlightened than Americans. That is why most of the liberals remained
in Europe when conservatives were coming to America . They crept in after
the Wild West was tamed and created a business of trying to get something
Here ends today's lesson in world history:
It should be noted that a Liberal may have a momentary urge to angrily
respond to the above before forwarding it.
A Conservative will simply laugh and be so convinced of the absolute
truth of this history that it will be forwarded immediately to other true
believers and to more liberals just to piss them off.B
And there you have it. Let your next action reveal your true self.....I'm
going to have another beer
March 17, 2013, 6:41 amOh Crap!!
Kim Jung Un
Kim Jung Un had NO military experience whatsoever before Daddy made him a four-star general.
This snot-nosed twerp had never accomplished anything in his life that would even come close to military leadership.
He hadn't even so much as led a Cub Scout troop, coached a sports team, or commanded a military platoon.
So he is made the "Beloved Leader" Of North Korea.
I just remembered that we did the same thing.
We took an arrogant <snip> community organizer, who had never worn a uniform, and made him Commander-in-Chief.
A guy, who had never had a real job, worked on a budget, or led anything more than an ACORN demonstration, and we made him "Beloved Leader" of the United States
I'm sorry I brought this up.
March 17, 2013, 5:41 amOur Democracy Is At Stake!!
Email from a friend
In 1887 Alexander Tyler, a Scottish history professor at the
University of Edinburgh, had this to say about the fall of the
Athenian Republic some 2,000 years prior: "A democracy is always
temporary in nature; it simply cannot exist as a permanent
form of government. A democracy will continue to exist up until
the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous
gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from
the public treasury, with the result that every democracy will finally
collapse over loose fiscal policy, (which is) always followed by a
"The average age of the world's greatest civilizations from the
beginning of history, has been about 200 years. During those 200
years, these nations always progressed through the following sequence:
From bondage to spiritual faith;
From spiritual faith to great courage;
From courage to liberty;
From liberty to abundance;
From abundance to complacency;
From complacency to apathy;
From apathy to dependence;
From dependence back into bondage."
The Obituary follows:
Born 1776, Died 2012
It doesn't hurt to read this several times.
Professor Joseph Olson of Hamline University School of Law in
St. Paul, Minnesota, points out some interesting facts concerning
the last Presidential election:
Number of States won by: Obama: 19 Romney: 29
Square miles of land won by: Obama: 580,000 Romney: 2,427,000
Population of counties won by: Obama: 127 million Romney: 143 million
Murder rate per 100,000 residents in counties won by: Obama: 13.2 Romney: 2.1
Professor Olson adds: "In aggregate, the map of the territory
Romney won was mostly the land owned by the taxpaying citizens
of the country.
Obama territory mostly encompassed those citizens living in low
income tenements and living off various forms of government
Olson believes the United States is now somewhere between the
"complacency and apathy" phase of Professor Tyler's definition of
democracy, with some forty percent of the nation's population
already having reached the "governmental dependency" phase.
If Congress grants amnesty and citizenship to twenty million

goodbye to the USA in fewer than five years.

Your hospital Medicare admittance has just change under Obama Care. You must be admitted by your primary Physician in order for Medicare to pay for it!

The nurse came and got me, got out the needle filled and ready to go then looked at the computer and got very quiet and asked if I was prepared to pay for it. I said no that my insurance takes care of it.She said, that Medicare had turned it down and went to talk to my Dr. about it. 15 minutes later she came back and said, she was sorry but they had tried every-thing they could but Medicare is beginning to turn many things away for seniors because of the projected Obama Care coming in. She was brushing at tears and said, "Some day they too will get old", I am so very sorry!!Please for the sake of many good people. . . ..be informed please .YOU ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE THIS...At age 76 when you most need it, you are not eligible for cancer treatment* see page 272

January 23, 2013, 1:20 pmRelated to Cajunwin's Post
I was relating the above subject to an publix employee this morning. I asked him, if he thought this could be true or could happen? He replied, no. This black cashier came over and said, yes it could happen. I've known him for at least 10 years. I asked him, why would you of all people, would say that. He looks at me and said, I have been telling people since Obama was first elected, that he was a socialist and dangerous. He does not like the way this country operates. He goes on about Obama having the blacks and all the rest of the people who voted for him fooled, thinking he is doing this for them. My respect rosed.
January 21, 2013, 6:03 amWhat Do You Think Martin Luther King Would Think About Obama?
Do you think, he was talking about food stamps and free cell phones in, " I have a Dream", speech? Do you think he meant that people were suppose to live off the government, or self supporting, by having an equal opportunity at employment? Free to attend any school. Futhermore, I think he would be very disappointed in the way a lot of his people have become. Every black person living today owes MLK and Rosa Parks, for every freedom and opportunity, they enjoy today.
October 30, 2012, 1:38 pmAnswer This Lil Speedy
When you don't agree with someones opinion, do you always play the race card? How many blacks do you think will not vote for Obama? You say,you are a veteran, do you agee with the way the President has treated the military. What do you think the black members of our military are thinking? Do you think they will vote for him because he's black? What do you think was the reason for the statement, Martin L King's niece made? You think she's a racist? I didn't vote for him because he's black, I voted for Romney because, we need someone that will change the direction we are heading. I don't know if things will change for the better or not, but I know for a fact, the current administration can't solve the problems.
May 23, 2008, 5:21 pmPrice of Gas?? Could This Be True?? Are We Being Duped??
A email buddy sent me this. I haven't verified any of the info. If this is true, why hasn't our elected officials done something? I intend to send a copy of this to everyone of my elected officals.
Subject: The cost of gas (INTERESTING)
Subject: Fw: the cost of gas please pass this on to everyone you know!
Like you, I've been absolutely blown away by what has happened to the price
of a gallon of gas. More like just plain MAD! But it's time (way past
time, obviously) for all of us to put up, or shut up. And by that I mean
quit belly-aching to one another (trust me - I do it as well - so I'm
talking to myself, too, here!) ... and DO SOMETHING. And trust me ... not
buying gas from one or two of the 'Big Boys' for a month, or electing to not
buy gas on a given day is not the answer. The answer is one I know you
know, and have heard many times before from people a lot more well-versed in
this than me: LESSENING our dependence on foreign oil.
Just poking around the Internet recently, I simply "Googled" the search
"Untapped U.S. Oil Reserves," and the result (like the current price of a
gallon of gas - BLEW ME AWAY! Go ahead, take a minute and see for youself!
Never mind, I'll share some of the highlights I found.
1. Ever heard of the Bakken Formation? GOOGLE it. I did, and again, BLEW
my mind. The U.S. Geological Service issued a report in April ('08) that
only scientists and oilmen/women knew was coming, but man was it big. It
was a revised report (hadn't been updated since '95) on how much oil was in
this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota; western South Dakota; and
extreme eastern Montana ... check THIS out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska's Prudhoe Bay,
and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil.
The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion
barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel,
we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5.3 trillion.
a.. "When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see
their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea." says Terry Johnson, the Montana
Legislature's financial analyst.
b.. "This sizeable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field
found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette.
It's a formation known as the Williston Basin, but is more commonly referred
to as the "Bakken." And it stretches from Northern Montana, through North
Dakota and into Canada.
For years, U.S. oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the
"Big Oil" companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago.
However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's
massive reserves... and we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.
And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost
Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 41 years
2. [And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should -
because it's from TWO YEARS AGO, people!]
U.S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World!
Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains
lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world is more
than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush
mandated its extraction.
[(???) What the!??]
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than
all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:
-8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
-18-times as much oil as Iraq
-21-times as much oil as Kuwait
-22-times as much oil as Iran
-500-times as much oil as Yemen - and it's all right here in the Western
[HOW can this BE!? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this!? Because we've not D
E M A N D E D Legislation to come out of Washington allowing its extraction,
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this
very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels.
Untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil
in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
Don't think "Big Oil" will drop its price - even with this find? Think
again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, and if they can extract
it (here) for less, they can afford to sell it for less - and if they DON'T,
others will. It will come down - it has to.
[Got your attention/ire up yet? Hope so! Now, while you're thinking about
it ... and hopefully P.O'd, do this:
3. Take 5-10 minutes and compose an e-mail; fax or good old-fashioned
letter to our elected officials in Washington ... and their respected
leaders. We'll start with them, and here's how you can send them your
e-mail/fax, DEMANDING the immediate Legislation/an Energy PLAN that calls
for tapping into these (OUR OWN!) Reserves, as well as allowing for the
offshore drilling for OUR oil, in OUR offshore waters and Inter-continental
shelf ... not to mention Alaska. Technology ain't what it used to be people
(ever had arthroscopic surgery?). They can surgically extract OUR oil, and
get us on the way to at least some measure of Energy independence.
You don't take a little time to do this, then you should stifle yourself the
next time you want to complain about gas prices ... because by doing
NOTHING, you've forfeited your right to complain.
