    How much has been spent in Iraq? for WAR?



    If we can spend so much time, energy and effort for WAR, why in the heck can't we invest in energy research?



    Because the right wing swallowed the profiteering bait hook, line, and sinker that drilling is somehow better. Gullible idiots.

    The result was the world saw the US as a flagrant aggressor.



    Obama, though he continued what was already starters, gave the image of a more peaceful nation. Had he ended everything outright, the world would have been happier, but the Right in the US would have revolted. That is also a funny question to many around the world: why do these "good Christian conservatives" who value life so much spend so much of their time hating everything and starting wars?





    Of course that's wrong but?



    Please tell me what Bin Laden's family was guilty of that they should not be allowed to leave if they chose to? Guilty by association?

    All flights were grounded. Why was one family given special privileges?

    If you can't figure that out you're a fucking moron.

    Oil companies, 2010:



    If you let us drill more and without stifling regulations (like the kind that would have prevented the Gulf oil spill), then your gas prices will go down, and it won't affect the environment at all!



    Yep. There's a sucker born every minute.



    Right, so we're still back to ignoring my examples on what increasing U.S. oil production does to the price of oil?

    I'll answer the former....$20 billion. As for Iraq, are you proposing a $1.2 Trillion alternative energy program?

    Drilling is not "better." It's necessary. We need more production in the short term.
