It's time to start taking oil from Iraq to pay for this War.. We've already done so much for Iraq that we should at least get something in return!!

Good idea, they should give us free oil for the next five years to defray some of our costs!

I think America should become energy independent from the rest of the world. If it is safe to drill in the Gulf of Mexico then it's safe to drill in the Grand Canyon, ANWR and off both shores. There is no place in America that is more blessed than another place... there is no place in America that has a more or less fragile ecosystem than another so simply make all oil exploration legal or illegal. What's so hard about that, if we are against oil exploration then import it all. If we are against oil refineries then act like Iran and import all your gas and diesel... Our friends around the world will be generous as we are stupid.



When the lights go out we crank up a 10 Horse Power generator. When we need to run to the store we hop on our 250 horses and ride fast... We can revert to horses for our power if we don't like oil but I think it would take about two billion of them to keep us near our current standard and they eat a lot and crap a lot, and that could result in harm to the environment... Americans use the labor work days of 170 people for each man woman and child for their energy each day. We need to learn to use less! We need to get busy developing all types of energy and do it in America NOW!
