Thank An Obama Voter

When we finally make it to the ‘gas prices that will naturally skyrocket’ $8/gallon gas that Ogabe promises you can thank your neighbor still proudly displaying that Obama-Biden 2012 bumper sticker.

Just to get the ball rolling the administration’s ‘all of the above’ energy plan (that is if the above only includes green energy owned by campaign bundlers) the Department of the Interior is off and running closing federal lands to energy development. The Department’s Bureau of Land Management has decided to close off 1.6 million acres of publicly owned land previously set aside for Oil Shale development in Colorado, Utah and Wyoming. The land excluded is that which displays ‘wilderness characteristics’, I suppose as in contrast to oil shale operations in Manhattan. Help me out here, but isn’t that characteristic one thing that would define a good place to conduct operations in? Oh, my bad, I forgot opening the lands to oil shale development would totally and completely wipe out the Sage Grouse population, even to the last bird. After all we know that drilling oil in Alaska killed off the Polar Bears right? Of course all the critter’s-rights criminals want the bird placed on the endangered species list (right up there with Conservatives if the Progressives have their way) but the U.S. Fish and Wildlife says there are other species that rate the funds needed to enact their listing as endangered (i.e. they’re aren’t endangered when translated from the bureaucratese). I lived for nearly 4 years in Idaho and the high-desert there has tens of thousands of the damned things living in the vast areas where the sage brush is about the only plant life and the stupid things only have coyotes for predators and hungry coyotes at that. The bird itself can be hunted but the meat is nearly inedible because of the highly concentrated sage oil content. Regardless the greenies want all animal species on the endangered list, except humans since Planned Parenthood charged with and doing a fine job of culling the herd.

Sen. Mark Udall (Socialist-Colo.) praised the plan, saying the administration exercised the right amount of caution on oil shale development, which has not yet been brought to commercial scale and brings concerns about the amount of water used in the practice.

The irony is entirely lost on Senator Nitwit here that his pResident’s favorite energy forms haven’t been brought to commercial scale either, but that doesn’t stop him from sinking billions of taxpayer dollars into it. What the fuck is it with these conservation types and ‘saving’ water? Except for an insignificant amount of water vapor sublimating into space, water self-recycles and is never ‘lost’ permanently.

The production of oil from the shale deposits has historically been uncompetitive with conventional oil, however, as world oil prices increase along with the political instability of much of the major oil producing countries, research has been conducted and an emerging process has an excellent promise of bringing oil derived from shale onto the market at less than $40/barrel.

Even of more importance from the link above is this infobit:

Estimated U.S. oil shale reserves total an astonishing 1.5 trillion barrels of oil – or more than five times the stated reserves of Saudi Arabia.

Can you say one hellacious Strategic Petroleum Reserve?

Naturally all the usual envirocriminal suspects applaud Commie-Ken Salazar for his respect of Mother Gaia and some of her more worthless land and creatures.

The Ogabe administration marches on in their war on energy, perhaps the ‘final solution’ for the ultimate take-over of the republic by the tyrannical progressive movement.

-Come and Take it !

    I cant wait to see the faces of these envirofucks when they finally learn that to make their precious wind and solar energy remotely effective, they will have to destroy literally miles upon square miles of “environment” to plop down their panels and windmills.

    Folks, Ive come to the conclusion that it will be exceedingly entertaining to watch the progressive nazi movement implode on itself when they finally do realize the results of their little tantrums. Im not giving up the fight, but I am sitting back and waiting to tell them “I told you so” as I slam the door in their starving, homeless, and cold faces.

    Sort of the conclusion to which I have come. I have food, water, electricity. I have the means to protect same. Get your own, or get the hell away from me (I’m not entirely certain how much of the pressure required to fire this rifle I’ve already applied to the trigger…).

    You do realize that when Leftist movements start heading south they start killing millions, right? And that the Leftist groups here have already demonized pretty much everyone who disagrees with them. Also, they can expropriate the assets of any undesirables who are removed.

    If they start imploding, go long on backhoes, quicklime, and grass seed.

    Fa Cube Itches @ #: That’s my concern. Because I grew up in a massively leftie home, and everyone of them is stil as left, if not lefter, than they day they were born. And some of those bad habits rubbed off on me. So we’re not as well prepared to deal with a collapse as I’d like, and I can see that cliff getting close and closer (to mix my metaphors a bit here).

    However, I’ve come over to the dark side, because “big tent” idiocy aside, folks on the right are lot more hospitable and tolerant than those on the left. I’m married to a now-retired submariner, and we’re digging ourselves out of our hole, a hole which we will admit was to a certain extent of our making.

    And now, just as it’s looking like we’re about to get our elbows over the lip and finish hoisting ourselves out, this shit happens. I’m back on the Prozac so I can start to deal with the stress from the extra taxes, and the potential loss of a job (spouse works in retail), and the rising costs of everything, just as we’re coming into a New England winter, one that’s forecast to be a lot worse than last year, and this with two kids both in high school. Oh yeah, and with a family with some health issues, I’ve lost my employer health insurance (we never had it from the spouse, because retail pays like crap, and doesn’t subsidize their employees insurance very much either) and we’re going to be down to relying on Tricare. I know that some of the specialists we’ve seen in the last few years don’t take Tricare. But I can’t afford the higher premiums for the Cadillac plan my employer offers, which was the one they kept, and because of the Tricare, by law, I can’t sign up for the High Deductible.

    And those idiots I’m related to can’t understand why I’m upset. I guess making free birth control and abortions available for my daughters in the only thing I was supposed to be worried about. Not whether we’d be able to feed them, clothe them, keep them warm, just whether they could rut like bunnies with no consequences. If they actually asked my girls what their priorities were, sex is about the bottom of their list right now, well below daily necessities of life, being able to go to the movies or buy books and continue their music lessons, and getting into a good college so they can get a useful degree (one’s looking at engineering, and the other some sort of biomed subject).

    Or, here’s an original idea….Why doesn’t everyone PAY SOMETHING? Instead of a bunch of people that don’t pay ANYTHING in getting refunds for THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS?

    How is that “fair”?

    it’s not about raising taxes on rich people – It’s that it WON’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE. Even if you tax every millionaire in the country at 100% IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE, it doesn’t reduce the deficit enough to even NOTICE.

    In order to solve the problem, spending has to be cut. You can’t keep spending TRILLIONS MORE than you are taking in.

    What happens in your house when you run out of money? You can’t spend anymore, right? Not to a utility company, OR to a friend or family member that needs to borrow $100 for whatever.

    The country has to be run the same way. We are infinitely WEAKER today than we have EVER been in the past AT ANY POINT because of the financial mess that we are in.

    I agree with the poster above though – I think the republicans should hold a press conference and go on every TV show that they can get an interview on and just flat out say…

    “We’ve tried our best. The President doesn’t want to negotiate in Good faith, and rather than hold the country hostage with a stalemate, we are going to get out of the way and let him do it his way by simply voting present on any economic or job bills that come our way.

    From here on out, the President OWNS THE CONSEQUENCES HIMSELF”.

    With Obamacare getting ready to go into full effect, Businesses are already laying people off, reducing their workforces and cutting hours to stay below the 30 hour a week rule.

    What do you think is going to happen, when their taxes go up to almost 40%? More people are going to be fired and layed off. Unemployment will quickly jump to 12%+, more people will need benefits, the government will no longer have BILLIONS a month to prop up the stock market with their “easing”, and the whole ball of wax is going to collapse around the Administration.

    Where are needy people going to get help from then?

    Have you been to the grocery store lately? EVERYTHING IS MORE EXPENSIVE than it was even 6 months ago, yet pay and wages are the same or less – The average family made almost $4,000 less last year than the year before – Which is a significant number to many of the families making minimum wage or just a little bit more.

    I say give the majority what they want and then rub the consequences in their nose. When the crap really hits the fan, maybe the average citizen will start paying attention to what is actually happening instead of thinking that the government is some sort of super hero with an infinite amount of money.

    The right should rubber stamp ANYTHING to do with the jobs or economy – as long as it doesn’t affect our 2nd ammendment – Let Obama own the end result so he doesn’t have anyone else to blame, because the longer the right “fights” it and there is gridlock, he will always be able to put the blame on us, but if we let him institute his plan and it fails – HE OWNS IT.

    True enough, but it isn’t just people on the Right arming up. Plus, they’re already organized – we ain’t. It doesn’t guarantee they’ll win, but the initial body count could be very much against us.

    Fa Cube…., we aren’t after their stuff…they are after ours. It can change the equation to our favor quickly. How many of them have any experince with firearms, how many have even served? Or shot? So they sit on their asses expecting somebody else to handle it. We don’t suffer from such delusions.
    I have my stuff, for me, friends, and Rotties as I see fit.
    They have an EDP card……,
    And we do vastly outnumber them, and we are far more widely scattered…
    Let them come for us…we can wait………………it’s a whole lot easier to start some shit than it is to finish it….

    Quite a few have experience with firearms, and plenty have served. Hell, it’s not uncommon to find pickup trucks in blue states that have USMC/Army stickers side-by-side with Obama ’08 and Obama ’12 stickers.

    How many have shot? An awful lot. They’ve got felons and gangbangers (many of whom have military training and combat experience) on their side.

    Plus, the number of shooters isn’t as important as another factor: the number of killers. Laugh at the effete types all you like but:

    Vegetarian painter – Hitler
    Violinist – Heydrich
    Chicken breeder – Himmler
    Academics/Students – Beria, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot, Milosevic, bin Laden, Nasrallah,Arajs,
    Law – Pavelic, Kaltenbrunner, Stahlecker
    Sales – Eichmann
    Medicine – Che, Karadzic, al Zawahiri, Hadad, Habash
    Government administration – Eicke, Mueller, Blokhin
    Engineer – Jeckeln
    Pilot – Cukurs

    Not exactly a list of “tough guy” jobs, but their body counts speak for themselves as to their willingness to kill. Many on the Right are willing to defend themselves and their families, but there aren’t many who will kill out of religious zeal for their preferred political philosophy.

    Again, not to say they’ll win or be unstoppable, but don’t underestimate them.

    What I am thinking, Fa Cube, , at least in my case, given where I live, knowing the people here, is the hope that the Mexican gang bangers won’t want to unite with white lefties, nor the Crips and Bloods. A lot of them will snag turf, others revenge killings. No love lost between them. Lots of La Raza types. They will fight amongst themselves, at least in time. Hell, they fight anough as it is now. I just don’t want to get stuck in the middle of a gang war, no cops around. Not healthy at all. To see if one can play their own greed against them, and them against each other. Psy-ops, bait, diversions, obstructions, whatever we can do. Everybody will fight the cops., or national guard. The former will leave, no doubt, to look after their own. There will be defections on all sides, both good and bad. In these parts, a place nobody really notices, the right soldiers vastly outnumber the left. But less of each, a smaller population. A lot of vets here,. None of us take kindly, regardless of political beliefs, to any vet being fucked with. We’re pretty right wing out here. Of course that’s a small town, basically insignificant overall, in the cities another matter.
    I do have to wonder how many ex soldiers of the left pursuasion would turn their backs on the American people? Not saying their government. I wish I knew what percentage. Voting left is one thing, killing Americans quite another for many. Although Kent State is a memory, Ruby Ridge, Waco….. I know some lefty soldiers, basically good guys, they, like most others, don’t want any problems at all, as with us, centering about our families and friends.
    I’ve tried to imagine the hell the cities could become, or even surburbia. Not easy to think about.
    I doubt for the most part we would be noticed, except by some gang bangers. They would cause enough problems, and what the left knows, for they will be victims too, and we don’t, is that you have to simply exterminate these fuckers, you can’t reason with them, many of them beyond animals. I’ve known a few….some are scary dudes.
    It’s quite a hike to get out here from any big city, not to mention, but a few of them can raise a lot fo hell if unprepared. Others from cities may view us as a target of opportunity. Once cities have nothing left to take, then they come, if they got the gas. And how much, if highways are open. if any warning would we have? And how much could we do about it? It would be pretty easy to block routes in this small town, being five miles off a main highway they might not even bother, a much bigger prize thirty miles further away. Of course they have their own gang problems as well. Meth is king out here.
    You are right about the leaders, I won’t ever underestimate them. Obamas advisers were scary enough without even killing anybody, they sounded like Nazis. It sure sounded like they want to, folks believing like us. We’re a nuisance, a pest.
    And I’m outnumbered, in my own house, just me. I have made arrangements with some friends, should things get dicey, if they can get here….I have what they need to survive. But I need them….and they me. Otherwise I am probably screwed. We all have done what we can, mine is locale and material. I’ve personally seen the explosive power of an oxy/acetylene tank, just two atoms of carbon and two of hydrogen. It makes buildings go away. It ain’t propane.
    I’m low key about it, nobody in town knows i’ve done anything from aside of squirreling some chow away, like most of us. Guns are plentiful. That can be both good and bad.
    Overall I believe we would prevail, I’m guessing at least an even chance I wouldn’t get through it. Not at my age. It would be a mess, a bloody mess. Some wannabe punk might blow my ass away. That would piss me off.
    That’s okay, considering what’s at stake……..believing as I do.
    And I’m actually glad Mary won’t be here, if it comes down………..
    I’m just hoping it never comes down, period…..

    That’s one of the things going through my mind now that I’m beginning to get over the shock and starting to plan.

    The leftist swine have used “divide and conquer” with great success against us, creating client communities dependent upon Ear Leader’s leftist swine party in order to continue to exist, dividing Americans into groups instead of the “e pluribus unum” that we used to stand for.

    It has worked for them, no denying it, but it is also their greatest weakness.

    They have created a bunch of groups, formed their identities, inherently in conflict with each other, but managed to unite them in the idea that they all have one thing in common: They’re all against US.

    Quite useful if we play along, and we tend to because we DO believe in all of us being Americans, but I aim to misbehave.

    All of those leftist-manufactured subcultures only have one thing in common, and that is that they have been taught that we are the enemy. It has been wildly successful. As long as they’re focused on their common enemy, that inherent weakness will never come back to haunt them. But they know as well as we do that their carefully crafted subcultures really hate each others guts. It’s just that they’re too busy fighting the Common Enemy right now to bother.

    There’s the wedge.

    We can divide and conquer the fuck out of their cozy little coalition because they’ve already done the dividing for us. Blacks, thanks to leftist swine preaching to them that they’re just too fucking dumb to make it on their own, have the highest unemployment rate of any ethnic subdivision here. Think they’re going to be helped by a flood of illegal immigrants from Mejico? Oh no, they’re not. We need to make them see that. Asians, hard studying as they are, are they going to be helped by the fruits of their labors being leeched off to pay welfare clients of the leftist state? No, they’re not. We need to make them see that. They’ve sown the seeds of their own defeat. Their divide and conquer strategy only works so long as their factions have a common enemy. If we were gone, the whole fucking thing would explode in their faces as their balkanized subcultures started fighting over the scraps.

    They need us.

    We need to use the fuck out of that.
