Frustrated Incorporated
I just want something simple, like the TRUTH!

President Bush is now announcing the lifting of the executive order banning offshore drilling. It won’t mean anything. Congress still has to act, but he is announced today!


Finally, America you can drill… where the oil actually is.

If Congress will get off their fat asses and get something done about accessing the domestic supply here in our country.

All you that believe, “War in Iraq was for oil.” Well, as history already shows (Kuwait is another prime example of the fallacy of the statement) This war has continued the safe and free follow of oil from the mid-east, violence continues fail 85%/90% last time I checked.

But I am getting off topic.

You don’t need to look far to see the obstacles: Congress/Senate/Environmental wacko Groups, Democrats, Liberals, etc…

The percentage of voters who give Congress good or excellent ratings has fallen to single digits for the first time in Rasmussen Reports tracking history. This month, just 9% say Congress is doing a good or excellent job. Most voters (52%) say Congress is doing a poor job, which ties the record high in that dubious category.

US Congress Approval Rating

The new Democrat Congress, came in on the wonderful plan they were to announce in the first 100 days, or whatever, never materialized (gas prices have doubled) and now all they do is blame Bush, Business, Foreign countries (…even though they demand greater production from foreign countries, while stopping with all might our own production), ah… and don’t forget they want to sue OPEC for not producing enough… please…

Typical liberal solution: do nothing… except obstruct.

It was just a few weeks ago that the Democrats in Congress were railing at Big Oil, telling us that Big Oil was responsible for high prices and that Congress would be taking charge. Remember Maxine Waters? She let the cat out of the bag, said she wanted to nationalize the oil companies.

Well, what happened to that solution? What happened to getting even with them? What happened to taking it to those guys, hmm? What happened to that solution?

Isn’t it amazing, my friends, that the scapegoaters in Congress have literally dropped the issue of attacking oil companies now in lieu of oil speculators?

So guess who won the debate when Congress debated the oil executives a few weeks ago? The oil executives, they manned up!

The oil executives grew a set and they finally told Congress the facts of life when it comes to supply, demand, and overregulation, and look what happened? Congress was embarrassed, Americans figured out who the real enemy is, and Big Oil is off the hook because they got the facts out. As a result, Big Oil was dropped as a bad guy faster than a negative Lord Obama story. And oil speculators were instantly declared public enemy number one. Meanwhile, the speculators were simply reacting to fake news out of Iran, fake news promulgated by the US Media.

I just find it amazing, folks, how quickly members of Congress and the Democrat Party dropped blaming Big Oil for the prices of gasoline and have moved on to the speculators.

What a breathtaking quickness took place here, shifting blame from Big Oil to the oil speculators. It’s a given that Democrat policies will never be examined regarding that or any other issue, so there’s always going to be a distraction and the Democrats are always gonna need a demon. So does this mean that the decades of endless investigations and public rebukes and condemnations of Big Oil have been wrong? Seriously, folks, these are our members of Congress. These are the guys that pass the laws and then act like spectators. These are the guys that gave us the subprime problem. These are the guys that create all this. These are the guys that won’t drill for oil. These are the guys that cause runs on banks, like Charles Chuck-U Schumer. They sit around and get to act like spectators. Now all of a sudden they drop the hot potato of Big Oil. Does this mean they’ve been wrong all these years? Does it mean it’s been a total waste of taxpayer money to go after Big Oil all these years?

How many millions of taxpayer dollars have been wasted on investigations and big show hearings, show trials targeting Big Oil? I think they were going on in the 1970s. How many hundreds of millions of dollars has it been? How many millions have the oil companies had to spend defending themselves and the countless hours of favorable news coverage at the same time devoted to Democrats showboating on TV, acting as prosecutor, judge, and jury with their declarations that Big Oil was ripping off Americans and getting filthy rich with their ill-gotten windfall profits.

Whatever became of all that?

Is that now just inoperative ’cause it’s the speculators’ fault? Big Oil was guilty until proven innocent, and there would be no innocents.

There are no innocents in oil prices. Somebody is guilty. They’re going to find somebody to get you mad at, and now it’s the speculators.
