“Who is this "we" ? Do you have an oil company? The oil companies control the oil not the US govt. We would still be dependent on the same oil companies we are now. Drill all you want in the USA and Canada but the price of oil won't come down. After all "we" don't own the oil.”

Pax Romana on Oct 18, 2013 at 11:54:01

“Not so fast Copernicus! I was talking about energy independence from middle eastern oil sources, not about oil prices. In fact, the entire article was about energy independence.

But, on the subject of oil prices, we are not paying twice as much for oil, as we were in 2009. The US Dollar that we are buying the barrel of oil with, is only worth half as much as it was in 2009. And, the reason for that is because the US Goverment has been printing twice as many dollars as we used to.

Why would the government need to steal half of our individual wealth, when they can just print money, and devalue our savings by half?”

“Actually if you know how our system of government works you would know that the The House of Representatives and Senate control the budget and spending not the President. Just shows the lack of leadership on John Boehner as the Senate has put forth a solution and Speaker Boehner refuses to allow a vote on it.”

STLWSChamps on Oct 15, 2013 at 11:14:34

“And that "solution" includes no spending cuts and a $100 Billion dollar addition to discretionary spending budgets that would put them right at $1.8 Trillion dollars. I don't doubt for one second why he wouldn't allow a vote on it. Good for him!!!”

sandmn7442 on Sep 11, 2013 at 11:38:24

“With ten cops in my in-law family, I made this observation years ago and have seen it over and over. Cops have a voice that tells them, ANY SITUATION CAN TURN AN I MIGHT HAVE TO SHOOT YOU. I understand when you're chasing bad guys who stand to lose a lot, that's caution and wise. However, it boils down to daily life, bully the wife and kids, other relatives, the neighbors, YOU MIGHT HAVE TO SHOOT if things get really bad. It's the gun mentality personified. I have relatives who volunteer for special drug forces because they get to pullout their guns and shoot family dogs and point loaded weapons at helpless people and shoot someone if they look like they might be thinking about getting a gun.”
