Yea… we can drill now. The only problem is that we can only drill where there isn’t any oil.
Oh and in exchange for getting to drill where there isn’t any oil we have to pay more taxes. And I say we for a reason, sure the estimated 18 billion dollars in new taxes will be leavied on the oil industry but, as anyone with half a brain knows, those taxes will most certainly be passed right along to us. Of course the Democratically controlled congress doesn’t understand that because well… they’re working with a smidge less than half a brain… collectively.
But, despite the facts, I can see the headlines tomorrow:
“House passes drilling ledgeslation! Democrats deliver and America falls even more in love with them”
“Democrats in congress win on energy, Nancy Pelosi is hero of the day”
“Nancy Pelosi steamrolls Republicans on drilling, everyone happy”
“Pelosi and Dems save America from energy crisis”
But here’s one headline you wont see:
“House passes 18 billion in new energy taxes, leaves 88% of offshore oil untappable”

The democrats are beholden to the environmental mafia, and they know this bill will lead to no advances in drilling. The democrats are playing politics right down to the wire in this election, it’s up to McCain talk radio and conservative blogers to expose them.
Indeed Johnny. Indeed.
I say we drill in Nancy Pelosi’s forehead. There may be nothing there, but rumor has it her mouth contains the strategic reserves for the nation’s natural gas.
Anyway, I came across your site through Michelle Malkin’s site.
My blog is the Tygrrrr Express.
If you feel it is of a high quality, please consider a link or blogroll exchange.
Also, I get a decent amount (not Malkin-sized!) of traffic, in case you have anything you would like to promote.

I was listening to the great feat the Democrats pulled off with this energy bill and thinking about all the non-drilling that will be done and all the oil that won’t be produced as I drove from gas station to gas station this morning trying to find someone with gas to pump into my rental car. It reminded me of the oil crises of the ’70s. Now I expect that with the help of the hear-nothing, see-nothing, do-nothing, think-nothing democratic congress I will soon be spending $6.00 a gallon for gas. I for one, am infuriated. What’s worse is the total feeling of helplessness. The American tax payer is being raped and we’re being told to sit back and smile about it.
