    Drill Oil NOW

    I am the only one down with this. Seems like everyone is drilling our oil off our coasts except the United States because of the enviromentalists.

    I am for drilling in Alaska with boundries and rules against killing the wildlife and ruining the scenery up there.


    I know Newt has a petition on his web site trying to get us to dril.

    What do you all think?

    Huh? Isn't that the point?


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    With 4.00 gas I imagine the # opposed to it might be dwindling.

    I'm actually ok with 4 dollar gas provided it gets people thinking more seriously about 1) driving less 2)other energy sources 3) developing in a less auto oriented manner.

    That is great, but there are many people who can't afford it.

    As a utility employee who deals with natty gas,

    there IS a shortage of drilling equipment in the states as well as experienced folks simply because our nation has put so much off-limits.

    I feel for those people but I'm not about to vote for continued cheap oil for those folks (and everyone else) at the expense of larger future problems. At 4 bucks most people CAN afford it if they change their habbits some. Thats kind of the point, actually.

    True but there are people that have to commute to work and really don't have much of a choice. I switched school districts last year and the commute was part of it. I went from 30-40 minutes each way to 5. Now it's looking like a great move money-wise too with the costs of driving going through the roof.

    I agree with you in principal, but you are going to hurt many people with this strategy in the short term.

    Re: Drill Oil NOW

    Some people seem to think it's only the price of gas that is going up.

    Drill, drill, drill. A lot of people say we have enough to sustain us for 200-300 years. Heck even if it's just 50-100 years, that should be plenty of time to find another energy source.
