The Oil is Ours

Yes, the Oil is Ours.  It's a slogan from Brazil in the 1950s, but it is equally appropriate today in the United States.  The environmentalist assholes were telling us back in 2009 or 2010 that "we can't drill ourselves out of this one" and we shoved it up their collateral assholes.  We now produce more oil than Saudi Arabia and are the number 1 oil producer in the world,  Now those assholes want to take our very successful weapon away. They want to kill fracking.

Now you are probably thinking that I am somehow beholden to the oil companies.  Yes, I own a few shares of oil companu stock, but that is because oil is the "lavor of the month" for us value stockholders.  You can blame Saudi Arabia for that.  They contunue to pump their hearts out when they really should cut back and r=drive prices back up.

Before I get bac to the gist of this story, I want to say a few things about the pirates that market their products to seniors.  They think they know us, but in fact they do not.  I had some jerkoff at Investors Bank try to sell me an anuity for 8 percent with "no risk"{/  Of course I told him to go to hell.  Why?

First, I am not risk adverse, rather I love risk.  Som 19th century capitalist, I don't know who, once said the time to invest is when blood is running in the streets.  I am of that ilk.  You want to make the real money, you must have brass balls.  And that is from an American senior citizen.  Maybe its time for the jerkoffs in charge to retoll their marketing strategy.

Back to "The Oil is Ours".  We were able to access the other half of America's oil that is still in the ground.  Why give it away to foreigners?  Mr Obama oppooses lifting restrictions on exporting American oil because of the global warming theory.  Whether man casuses climate change or not, it doesn't matter.  It is occuring.  The meterological data tells us that the eart is getting warmer.  I just don't think it is ourt obligaton as the second-largest catbon emitter to do anything about it.  In fact, there is no direct proff that catbon hioxide or man has anything to do with the warming at all.

Moving New Jersey to the climate of South Carolina.  Sounds like a wonderful idea.  I love golbal warming.  Notice I'm not stupid enough to buy a house at the shore.

Yes, as someone with a Bachelor of Science degree, I take my degree title literally.  I won't dismiss the ideas of global warming advocates literally/  I think we ought to develop alternative energy scource (wind and solar) so they become practical.  We also must use the most practical solution to minimizing our carbon footprint that is avalilable tofay.  In oned word, that is natural gas.

I am a stong supporter of the PennEast pipeline.  I make no secret of the fact that I got thousands of dollars invested in PSEG.  But does that have anything to do with my decision to support the pipeline proposed for Hopewell Township?  Perhaps, but perpharilly, I invest where value is and that can change in a heartbeat.

No, I actually care about the environment and that's why I support the PennEast pipeline.  So why would I support something that RiverKee[er and the Sierrs Club oppose?  Just let me answer the question.  Can we reduce carbon emmissions from converting the Duck Island PSEG gemerating plant from coal to gas?  Of cource yes.  But in order to do this, we need a plentyfuk and reliable source of gas.  And that is embodied in the PennEast pipeline.  So let's build it..

And that is from a guy who owns several several hundred shares of Associated Resources Partnership (ALRP).  Yes, I love coal too.   But I lopve my planet more.  Let's build the pipeline and move on to the future.  And for now, that's natural gas, not wind and solar.
