Why Does Gas Cost So Much?

Why is gas so expensive?
ERIC BOLLING, FOX BUSINESS: Well, there are a lot of reasons. First and foremost, we don't drill enough of our own oil, Greta. We use 20 million barrels of-- you've heard these numbers before. We use 20 million barrels of crude oil a day in America. We only produce around six million barrels a day. We need to drill more.
A great example of why that would matter-- look at natural gas, where we use everything-- everything we use, we produce right here in North America. So it doesn't matter what happens geopolitically in Egypt or Cairo or Libya. It just doesn't matter what goes on there. It only matters what we produce here, and prices don't spike when geopolitics matters. So it's drilling, one, and it's the EPA, too, Greta. I've been saying for a long time they really need to relax these EPA standards on blended fuel.Read more click here

Memorial Day

Tomorrow, May 30th, is Memorial Day for Americans.  For my friends and family who served and the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines who serve today and years past we sincerely thank you for your sacrifice.  In todays' world such sacrifice is sold short of the honor it should be afforded.  Servicemen and women are looked down upon by general society except on a few choice holidays.  Freedom is not free and too often the price is not paid by those who profit the most but by those who deserve the most.  God bless America. Video Tribute - click here

Cool Cal, Why Ron Paul is our Ideal for 2012

The tea party’s ideal presidential candidate would most likely be someone who combines the right political principles of limited government with a self-effacing approach to the wielding of power — and an aversion to the trappings of the office. A tall order in our day of 24-hour media coverage and political celebrity, when some potential presidential contenders appear on their own reality shows.Cool Cal - Click here

This is what the presidency stands for.  Did we throw off one king for another?  A lesser title with power beyond intention? No, our government was set up with a great system of checks and balances to ensure no one could assume power over another.  Though we've managed to change what we were meant to be as any no founding father would recognize their country today.  Shame on us and our fathers before to allow such.  It is time to set things as they should be and stop looking to the executive office as the "king," of our nation.  We are "King," though how many of us realize it?

The Dirty Old Man and the IMF by Patrick J. Buchanan

Monday, The New York Times wrote, "As the impact of Mr. Strauss-Kahn's predicament hit home, others, including some in the news media, began to reveal accounts, long suppressed or anonymous, of what they called Mr. Strauss-Kahn's previously predatory behavior toward women and his aggressive sexual pursuit of them, from students and journalists to subordinates."
As is not infrequently the case, Rep. Ron Paul nails it: "These are the kind of people running the IMF, and we want to turn the world's finances and the control of the money supply (over) to them?"What is this satyr doing running the IMF? How was a man of his Eurotrash reputation approved by the United States government? Such conduct may be pooh-poohed over the pond, but has our country dropped that low?''

Increase the Debt Limit????????

Are you kidding?  Absolutely no deal.  Neither "R" nor "D" should go for this one..would you extend credit to a notorious defaulter? They will sell it as a MUST MUST deal....same MUST MUST deal as bailing out AIG and GM.  More government control and interference into the market place and more money being poured down a black hole.

On the issue of the whether to raise the debt ceiling—allowing the government to borrow and spend even more money—President Barack Obama has resorted to dire predictions about what could happen if Congress does not take action. The Hill reports:"If investors around the world thought that the full faith and credit of the United States was not being backed up, if they thought that we might renege on our IOUs, it could unravel the entire financial system,” Obama said at a town hall meeting hosted by CBS last week but released Sunday.“We could have a worse recession than we already had, a worse financial crisis than we already had.”
And, likewise, U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner warned that if Congress does not raise the debt limit, the U.S. economy would likely enter a “double-dip recession” and added, “A default would inflict catastrophic, far-reaching damage on our nation’s economy, significantly reducing growth, and increasing unemployment.”
Heritage Foundation Vice President of Domestic and Economic Policy David S. Addington notes that those dire predictions just aren’t true. In discussing J.D. Foster’s paper “Congress Has Time and Options on Debt Limit,” Addington writes: "As Dr. Foster’s paper demonstrated, there will not be a default on the Federal debt when the Treasury reaches the statutory limit on its borrowing of $14.294 trillion.  The Treasury just will not be able to borrow any more money.  The Treasury would still pay debts that come due, putting off temporarily payment of less important obligations as necessary to pay the maturing debt.
President Obama’s prophecies about the debt limit obscure an underlying truth: The U.S. government must find a way to get control of spending. 

Virginia Gov. Robert McDonnell: Less Government = More Money

Gov. McDonnell is a walking refutation of the liberal notion that spending and borrowing create wealth.
“You have to make those tough cuts, endure political criticism, knowing that in the long run your state is going to be healthier,” McDonnell told us.  “I realize that government doesn’t create jobs, and the ones that they do they are not really the ones you want.  You want the private sector ones, innovative jobs that are long-term going to grow the economy.”

Revolution is Here

"Yesterday, I stood in the town hall in Exeter, New Hampshire, with a packed house of fellow Liberty Lovers and announced that I am a candidate for President of the United States.
Our REVOLUTION is now in a new phase. As the numbers build and the polling surges, we stand poised to win major political battles and take our Liberty back. 
You and I know that America is the greatest nation in human history. Belief in Liberty, limited government, and sound money made us the freest and most prosperous people in the world."

Did your Rep. Vote to Increase Gas Prices?

The House this week passed two bills, the Putting the Gulf Back to Work Act and the Reversing President Obama’s Offshore Moratorium Act. These bills force the administration to act quickly on federal permits of offshore drilling and open new, energy rich areas to leasing. If enacted these policies will create American jobs and bring down the price of energy.

Violation of the FOURTH AMENDMENT [U.S. Constitution] ?

'The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by Oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.'

INDIANAPOLIS | Overturning a common law dating back to the English Magna Carta of 1215, the Indiana Supreme Court ruled Thursday that Hoosiers have no right to resist unlawful police entry into their homes.
In a 3-2 decision, Justice Steven David writing for the court said if a police officer wants to enter a home for any reason or no reason at all, a homeowner cannot do anything to block the officer's entry.

Immigration Truth.....

On Tuesday, President Obama outlined a plan for immigration reform that included the DREAM Act, which was then reintroduced in the United States Senate on Wednesday.  The DREAM Act, which I voted against last Congress and still oppose, would grant lawful resident status, and ultimately citizenship, to illegal immigrant children who attend college or perform a significant amount of community service.  The bill also permits illegal immigrant children to enlist in the military in order to attain citizenship.

The Fed and the Debt - Ron Paul

We are told that Congress must raise the debt ceiling limit or else the financial markets and the US economy will suffer great harm. In reality, raising the debt ceiling will allow the government to continue its fiscal profligacy. Fed financed deficits will continue; foreign investors will continue to divest their holdings of Treasury securities; the Fed will be forced to monetize new debt issuances, and prices will continue to rise as the standard of living of the average American continues to plummet. If we have learned anything from history, we should know that printing money out of thin air cannot lead to prosperity. It can only lead to penury. Click here

Alan Greenspan “Betrayed” Ayn Rand and Ruined the Economy

Dr. Yaron Brook, president of the Ayn Rand Institute, says the opposite is true: The economy is sputtering because the government's response was too heavy-handed.
"I think we should have let banks fail, let auto companies fail [and] let housing prices tank to reach their true bottom," he says. "If we'd done that back in 2008-09, we'd have gone deeper into recession but we would be out of it today." For more - Click here

An Area that Needs to be Addressed -Education Reform

We all viewed with interest the goings-on in Wisconsin and the follow-on states where state workers went nuts over the taxpayers calling foul on the over generous benefit plans.  A related area is in our public school system.  Teachers unions support mediocrity in schools by keeping the poor performers whereas if they were private sector they would be turned out to the streets.

Check it Out & Knock it Out

This is unreal.  A federal program to provide free cell phone service to welfare recipients.  They say it was created by Reagan (not Obama) though I find that hard to believe. Either way I do not agree and will write my representatives to say so.

National Debt & Addiction to Spending

Insanity-repeating the same actions expecting a different outcome....This is where we are on the national debt.  We continuously talk about cutting spending and we can only agree to cut a minuscule amount from the multitude of Mt.Everest spending programs.  Until we get serious it's only going to get worse.
