Quit blaming Oil companies for profiting because of foolish, shortsighted, eco-driven, liberalism
Chuck Schumer, Putz-NY, showboats for the media
7 years ago, when the drilling in America debate began in earnest, the liberals like Chuck Schumer all bleated that it would take 7 years for America to benefit from drilling, and we have to fix it now. They fixed it by attempting to put a further tax on gasoline, which of course, Big Oil (whoever they are) would promptly pass onto the consumer. Of course no one remembers it now. But Schumer is reminding of us of it, by continuing to blast Oil Companies for making money. He also conveniently forgets that we would be producing our own oil today, drilled by Americans, refined by Americans, transported by Americans, and consumed by Americans, if the liberal elites in power had done the right thing by America, and avoiding special interests. Just in terms of job creation, drilling off Florida (like the Chinese, Canadians and Spanish are doing), would be a windfall. And before the liberal bleaters start whining about the environment, this is the 21st century, we can extract our own oil safely, cheaply and without endangering eco-systems near the site. Honest and reasonable folks understand this, why don’t liberals? It makes sense that Schumer wouldn’t-he is neither honest, nor reasonable. I just don’t get why others don’t get this.
Mr. Schumer, being a liberal elitist, has no clue about what middle America is like. It is the opinion of this author, that the Schumers of the world should STFU. Why? Because Mr Schumer doest pay for gas, he is driven to and from his DC apartment by someone else. How do I know this? More on this and another story about Mr Schumer will be appearing on this blog in the very near future. Suffice it to say, the elitists like Schumer forget that there are some who don’t care what liberals think and are quite capable of thinking for themselves. These folks also have long memories and digital media storage on their phones and cameras. Chuck Schumer does not speak for me, he does not represent mine or America’s interests, and he damn sure doesn’t know whats best for me. But “do as I say not as I do” Chuck Schumer, who flies on the taxpayer dime, is chauffeured on the taxpayer dime, fed, clothed and housed on the federal dollar, has no clue what it is like to pay for his idiotic gas taxes.
How did we ever get to a point where this putz has ANY say in energy policy?
