Low Oil Prices Are Good For America and Bad for America's Enemies. Naturally Obama Wants to Stop It

Venezuela is in free fall.

Russian Ruble is bottoming out.

Opec refusing to cut production even though they are losing money.

USA is stronger than ever. All of these are good things. So naturally Obama wants to stop it.
According to the Institute for Energy Research, “Nearly every barrel of new U.S. oil production can be attributed to the use of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing technologies.” The Left hates fracking and would love, if it could, to hamstring it.

The Obama administration is pushing new regulations on everything from coal-fired power plants to, perhaps soon, methane. If it had its way, it would impose a tax on carbon, and it wants to lead the world in restricting the use of fossil fuels in the name of combating climate change.

The assumption of the administration has always been that fossil fuels represent the past, when they are, in reality, powering the American economy into the future. “Drill, baby, drill” indeed.
Enemies of America have power over us because they have Oil. Oh wait, I should put that sentence in the past tense, because now we have oil. And we are throwing the markets into a tizzy and makes the U.S. strong. Our consumers, especially the poor and middle class (which the liberals say they love so much) have a lot of financial pressure removed. Oh the dollar is also a lot stronger now since economies and currencies built solely on oil are now in free fall.

Sure, you got to feel sorry for the terrorist that can only afford a firecracker vest. The IED's are now those confetti bombs you get at Wal-Mart but sacrifices must be made. I can live with that. Too bad the left can't live with America doing well.

Oh Jonathan Gruber. You Are the Gift That Keeps On Giving.

Ah Gruber. We should be thankful for him, there's more truth coming out of his mouth than all of the Obama administration: (Emphasis Mine)
Gruber said that Obamacare had no cost controls in it and would not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.

“The problem is it starts to go hand in hand with the mandate; you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable. This is going to be a major issue,” Gruber admitted in an October 2, 2009 lecture, the transcript of which comprised the policy brief.

“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”

Gruber also said that the only way to control costs is to effectively deny treatment.
Anyone want to poo-poo the death panels still?

#Podcast -- Update

Well Jim and I will be recording tomorrow and I should have it up sometime this week. I will be moving all the old podcast episodes over to Podbean over time and I'll also be re-doing ITunes. I've already re-done Stitcher's feed. I appreciate all your support and keep listening!

#Podcast? Episode 24: South Park and Sausage

So I think this works but if not, I'm making changes. Apparently DropBox is a little irritated about me hosting a podcast.I think this episode works but I'm getting a new hosting service. Should be better in the long run. The reason I have to move it is thanks to all of you who are apparently listening! I overloaded the Dropbox.

Bill DeBlasio to Press: Quit Dividing People!

Seriously, that's what he said today:

I made twitchy with this tweet during the press conference so I felt obligated to expound.

DeBlasio has been race-baiting and politicing with the worst of them and yet now that his words actually resulted in death, i.e. two NYPD officers gunned down in their car, he seems to think he has no share in the responsibility.

No it's the PRESS that's dividing people. Not me! Vote for me in the next election! DeBlasio! I don't divide if there's a chance I can be blamed for something!

Enough! Blacks, it's time to take responsibility for your actions. The blaming and race-baiting is getting us nowhere. You're being used by race-hustlers and politicians. Selma is over. You won. Now take that American dream. You'll need an education like the rest of us, and you have to keep your nose clean. Do that, you won't have any more problems than the rest of us have.

Yes, it's really as simple as that.

Redefining Courage

First off I know everyone's waiting with baited breath for the new podcast. It's coming later today.

Second, let's stop with all the "brave" celebrity types. A while back I did a post how the fawning press said a pro-football player and his pregnant wife doing a photo shoot (from which they got paid handsomely) were "brave" for "embracing their body image."

Enough. George Clooney (of all people) took a petition up to make sure the movie "The Interview" was shown in spite of the North Korean death threats. He got not one signature.

Look I'm done with it. Doing a movie on Jackie Robinson or Selma is not "brave." Big whoop. Good movies I'm certain. But no longer important or at least no more important than your average history book.

Hollywood keeps popping this tripe down our throats. Look at how bad and how shameful America was. Look at how far we have to go or some such thing. Whites are so racist. Whatever. This is what passes for having some balls in Hollywood: making a movie about something that everyone agrees was and is wrong.

How about some real bravery? Here was your chance, show the movie and give North Korea the finger. Look I get not wanting to chance getting people hurt over a movie but there were all kinds of ways to embarrass North Korea. Press conferences calling them weasel's and cowards who can't handle the least bit of criticism. Throw it out on legal torrent or streaming sites. Something, ANYTHING that actually shows you think this is bad and North Korean dictators are evil.

Yeah, how about making an actual judgement on actual evil? Stand up and say it? Clooney did, that's one out of how many?

Two blacks got killed by cops. Oh it's so easy based on past wrongs to continue race baiting. Do minorities face racism still today? Yeah sure. Easy to say. You want to stand up and say something brave? How much of the racism minorities face is from other minorities? Way more than whites.

Committing crimes is surest way to having something tragic happen with the cops. How about a "brave" movie showing consequences of black crime? No? Oh another Selma movie? Ok you brave Holllywood types.

Here was your fucking chance to show how brave you are. I'm not seeing another movie about the civil right's march anymore. I'm done. I will only see movies that show people benefiting from freedom and taking consequences for their actions. You're entire goddamn livelihood is built on free speech. Stand up for it, for Christ sake.

Taking potshots at conservatives isn't brave. If you think oppression is a right-winger raising an eyebrow in disapproval, you are a coward. Go to hell.

Oh you re-made "Annie" but switched the races? Not brave, not even interesting. How about a movie depicting Cuba as the hellhole it really is? How about a movie like "Inglorious Basterds" except instead of the fantasy of Hitler getting killed, how about Kim Jung Un?

Oh right, we did that. You pulled it at the first sign of trouble. Pussies.

Low Oil Prices = Destruction of Evil

The ruble lost 2.5 percent to 66.0985 against the dollar as of 12:53 p.m., reversing an early gain prompted by the news. 
The announcement, as well as its timing, underscored the financial straits in which Russia now finds itself. If sustained, the new higher rates would squeeze an economy that is already being hurt by sanctions led by the U.S. and European Union, and by a collapse in oil prices. Some analysts said they doubted the economy could withstand such high rates for long.
One of the methods Reagan used to destroy the Soviet Union was to collude with Opec into dropping the oil prices. Anyone remember this from the 1980s?

It wasn't just because the market was dropping. It was Reagan's energy policy which was as much foreign policy as economic policy. Low oil prices hurt Russia as well as terrorists countries. The difference today is it isn't a government edict... it's the market. US supplies are driving the price down. This is good for weakening these countries that are bent on being our enemy. Can't bankroll terrorism if there's no money. Can't invade countries if you can't afford your army.

Green Cars? Get a Hummer If You Really Care About Earth

Well ok, maybe not a Hummer. But pretty close:
People who own all-electric cars where coal generates the power may think they are helping the environment. But a new study finds their vehicles actually make the air dirtier, worsening global warming. 
Ethanol isn't so green, either. 
"It's kind of hard to beat gasoline" for public and environmental health, said study co-author Julian Marshall, an engineering professor at the University of Minnesota. "A lot of the technologies that we think of as being clean ... are not better than gasoline."
In other words, cheap gas will be better for the environment in the long run, since people will not want the premium cost for hybrids and electrics if gas is going to be under $2.00. And since it's apparent electric cars are bad for the planet, Cheap gas = Cleaner earth.

It's pure science! And Math. And other stuff.

#podcast Episode 23: Torture, Tammy, Twitter, and Facism!

Well here it is, another day, another podcast. We go over the bogus CIA torture memo, read some tweets, talk about the movie Tammy for unknown reasons, discuss how excess laws lead to fascism. Harvard students are all apparently pussies. Lena Dunham still exists unfortunately. Gas prices keep falling. Weather reports. Proper thermostat operation eludes Mark's family. It's all weird.

We are working on one more this week and will skip next week due to holidays. Enjoy!!

#Podcast Episode 22: Scandals and Star Wars!

We talk about the multitude of Obama scandals and Mark has a theory on why there are so many. We talk about the phony outrage about a black stormtrooper in the new Star Wars trailer, Ferguson, and random crap. Enjoy!

**Update** Apparently there was an issue with the link expiring on dropbox which it shouldn't do. I redid the feed but it may take an hour before it comes back to stitcher. Should be fixed by 2:00pm CST today at the latest..

The Progressive Income Tax System Explained

I mentioned this on the podcast but I wanted to embed:

I recommend looking at others from Prager University as well. Good stuff. Give them to your liberal friends. 

Wait, liberals don't have any friends, no one likes them.

Obama Logic: 2+2=Racism

So let's look at the events and Obama's conclusion.

  1. Michael Brown strong arms a convenience store clerk and robs him in broad daylight.
  2. He walks in the middle of the street and ignores Office Wilson's order to get out of the street.
  3. Forensic evidence and consistent witness testimony say Brown rushes Wilson, attacks him and attempts to take his gun, resulting in his getting shot and killed.
  4. A grand jury reaches the same conclusion and wisely decides not prosecute him. No one broke the law or acted inappropriately EXCEPT Michael Brown.
  5. Despite the facts, Ferguson residents and outside rabble rousers decide to riot and destroy innocent people's businesses.
Conclusion by Obama? Draw up a 4 point plan for the police and how they should act. Nothing in the plan on how people should not rush police, break laws, rob shops, burn down businesses, or even suggest that maybe they should at least look at the facts.

Of course. Of course.
