The smartest thing that I have ever heard anyone from Hollywood say:
OT, and it's hard to imagine anyone else caring, but I just cleaned and put a sealer on the multi-colored slate tiles in my bathroom. It looks wet. It's shiney and dry as a bone.
Yet another example of our privacy rights being taken away..
One last time, child
A statement wherein Obama states his commitment to energy independence.
(BTW he couldn't tout energy independence because it has not yet been achieved.)
You can look, but don't touch:
Here's a shocker: Which state is closest demographically to the US as a whole?
If you didn't guess Illinois, you're wrong.
More work Obama has done on energy independence:
If actions aren't more important than words, what is?
Wow! FOX news contradicts @ahandout!
Private production is up, way up!
I'm sure it looks great. I watch the DIY Network and marvel at all the projects that I will never be able to do in my lifetime.
I remember all the cooing and humming approval of the Patriot Act in 2001. I wonder what's changed. Let me guess.
Okay, goober, now run upstairs and tell your mom what you wrote.
Hey bud, using the word 'child' as far as trolling goes makes you look like a blithering idiot. It has absolutely no effect on the person you calling a child.
And coming off as sloppy thirds after paulejb and handy isn't exactly high praise. That and 'child' pretty much cement you as the ignoramus you throw around.
Just so you know - if you cant explain why something is other then retorting with child and ignoramus and I don't have time to teach you etc and other third rate trolling mechanisms I suggest you turn off your computer and give yourself a breather before you start believing in your own stupid like paulejb does.
It's not healthy, nor a very constructive form of argument. Just sayin'. If you don't have the facts to support your 'mouth' the result is usual inane idiocy.
I'm rather liberal on social issues, but this law looks mighty weird to me.
Can I say "I told you so!"
@sacredh But that is Obambi land. No rihl Amuricans would be caught dead there.
@terryclifton1, 30 years ago, I thought so too. Once I tackled small projects and saw how easy they were, I started doing bigger ones. I've built an entertainment center, coffee tables, floor to ceiling bookcases for the library and even a couple of walk-in clothes closets for my wife's things. The sealer was as easy as painting. A friend showed me how to do a diamond cut lay-out for the slate tiles and then I took over once I got the hang of it.
@Hollywooddeed, Obama killed Osama?
@collioure, they have to go somewhere.
@PaulDirks, yes. I hear that quite a bit. My wife often nails me with "say you were wrong". So I say "You were wrong".
@mantisdragon91, it's just demographics and not political affilation. I was still surprsised.
Using FOX to discredit your tenacious hatred of Obama was too good to pass up.
@terryclifton1, good job.
@collioure, but who decides transgender?
@MrObvious, after getting popped in the package, I plead delerium.
@ARTRaveler I'm still waiting for solar to make a dent.
Energy sources and percent share of total electricity generation in 2012 were:
- Coal 37%
- Natural Gas 30%
- Nuclear 19%
- Hydropower 7%
- Other Renewable 5%
- Biomass 1.42%
- Geothermal 0.41%
- Solar 0.11%
- Wind 3.46%
- Petroleum 1%
- Other Gases < 1%
I'm still waiting for switch grass to solve our energy needs.
colliouri, you so smart so look it up yoursxelf. Start with the state of the union for the past 5 years. That should answer your questions. BTW, actions still speak louder than all the Bush2 speeches.
And I am waiting for Interior to change the rules for off-shore leasing to say that they have 5 years from the date awarded to actually do something on the leased area or they lose their money and the section is put up for auction again. The oil companies have stockpiled leases to run up their "reserve"numbers with no intention of drilling. I think the next ones should be off Jacksonville FL, Miami Beach, Charleston SC, and Orange Beach AL. Those seem to have the loudest mouith U S Representatives who want leases but not in their back yard (or in this case, their front yard).
So we get a new poster who starts calling the established group names because they are so smart! collioure, maybe you need to go back to teh archivers before yopu start calling names.
"The reality is that acres of land that have been leased for energy production far outstrip land that has been preserved or conserved during the Obama administration," said Pete Maysmith, Director of Conservation Colorado.
In a statement to Fox News, the Bureau of Land Management pointed out that, "Domestic production from over 99,000 federal onshore oil and gas wells accounts for almost 13 percent of the nation's natural gas production and 5 percent of its oil. In FY 2012, this amounted to about $2.5 billion in royalties from onshore federal oil and gas production."
While industry critics say those figures are insignificant compared to what they could be, some conservationists believe the administration has gone too far in opening up federal lands in the West to oil and gas production.
"The reality is that acres of land that have been leased for energy production far outstrip land that has been preserved or conserved during the Obama administration," said Pete Maysmith, Director of Conservation Colorado.The administration has worked to shorten the time it takes to obtain oil and gas leasing permits on federal lands, a process that used to take an average of 300 days. But critics like Wigley say it's still not enough when compared to state and private lands. "For instance a permit in Texas or Oklahoma or North Dakota, you can get in 15 or 45 days. A permit on federal lands is about 230 days."

That's opinion. Look upthread.
I already anticipated you. You have nothing but your hatred.
"While energy production overall in the country has gone up significantly it is because of private land production, it is in spite of the federal government not because of it."
