While the U.S. has turned its attention to getting this fiscal crisis sorted out, the utterly worthless Senate Majority Leader has used this opportunity to try and slip in a ban on shale oil exploration and mining by attaching to one of the bills about to pass through Congress.
Our fiscal problems are multi-fold. Clearly one of the problems is the exploding cost of energy. Our largest reserve of oil is in an estimated 2 trillion barrels of recoverable oil from oil shale. That is more oil than Saudi Arabia has reserves. Harry Reid is now trying to make sure America never has the chance to touch it.
The left is bound and determined to take power and remake America in accordance with their highly unrealistic, utopian paradigm. They do not care if they have to destroy Middle America in the process. As we see today, people like Harry Reid, Chris Dodd and Barney Frank who created this subprime mess and defended it against all attempts at reform, will, when the excrement hits the fan, blame the resulting perfect shit storm on the right. They are clear and present danger to our way of life. They are craven, hypocritical, and beyond shameless.
Tarring and feathering is too mild a response to all of this.
