“You’d have to be an intellectual to believe something like that. No one else would be such a fool!” George Orwell
The circus created by the liberal carnival barker has illustrated Liberalism is a severely flawed ideology. Obama and his loyal minions have shown how Liberals become unhinged when their pursuit of power or grip on government is challenged. They morph into moral pretzels, make ignorant assertions or avoid the point trying to defend their Marxist ideals. Think not?
Notice the illogical meandering when liberals try to defend, justify or rationalize the policies of FDR, the calamities of the imbecilic Carter, the immorality and corruption of the Clinton’s or the foolishness of Obama. They ignore that fact that FDR implemented Marxist economics that escalated a recession to the decade long “Great Depression”; and during the 1970’s Carter’s answer to the energy and economic crisis was to wear sweaters and tax oil companies, requiring a new economic measurement, the misery index.
Now liberals display panic driven hysteria to remarket Obama’s energy plan, proper tire inflation. Remember Obama actually stated, by “making sure your tires are properly inflated we could save all the oil that they’re talking about getting off drilling. Liberals like Alan Colmes exhibit a melt down trying to remarket what he said whining it’s a credible energy policy, and it conserves oil and McCain agrees. That wasn’t the point and their hysterical display proved it.
First, liberals repeat the “it will save 3% of oil reserves” talking point. That”s not the point! He lied and said it would “save ALL the oil we can get by drilling.” Second, he inferred Americans are driving around on under-inflated tires, thus using 3% more oil. That”s absurd. Third, the elitist assumes us lowly Americans are so dumb we don”t know that it takes less energy to drive on properly inflated tires. What escapes the liberal elitist is most Americans learned the importance of properly inflated tires as children riding our bikes. Flat tires took more energy to pedal than “properly inflated” tires.
Then Obama repeats the liberal mantra, make more “electric cars” but opposes the production of coal and nuclear energy necessary to meet the increase demand for electricity. Instead of an “all the above” energy plan while developing and improving alternative energy technology like most Americans want, liberals deny drilling and press “alternative energy”. What Obama and his Kool-Aid drinkers ignore is all the alternative energy sources are inefficient and make up less than 10% of all energy produced. Over 90% of energy used by Americans is produced by coal, oil and hydro.
Instead liberals lie about “big oil” refusing to drill on millions of acres already leased. The fact is “big oil” paid for those leases and if there was enough oil to make it profitable to extract, they would. Liberals lie by omitting the fact that oil companies cannot “stockpile” leases to drive up gas prices. The Mineral Leasing Act (onshore production): 30 U.S.C. 226(e), Sec 17(e) stipulates that an oil company must have a producing well within 10 years or surrender the lease. The Outer Continental Shelf Lands Act: (offshore production): 43 U.S.C. 1337(b) stipulates that an oil company must produce energy between 5 to 10 years or surrender the lease.
Liberals continue to elevate stupidity and reward failure and their energy plans of the past and today prove it; wear sweaters, inflate tires, increase taxes and regulations on energy producers and blame “big oil”. In total arrogance and ignorance the new messiah leads the fool’s parade.
