    Default Oil Independance?

    Dont you just love it?



    Just a reminder of what the environmentalists, our legislators and our enemies are doing to us when it comes to making our country free of foreign oil.

    Subject: OIL

    OIL - you better sit down.

    Here's an interesting read, important and verifiable information :

    About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and
    one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to
    ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil
    does the U.S. have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more
    than all the Middle East put together." Please read below.


    Bakken Shale Map - Maps of Bakken Shale Oil Formation Field





    The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe
    Bay, and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign
    oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion
    barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... at $107 a barrel,
    we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5..3 trillion.



    By the way...this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

    GOOGLE it, or follow this link. It will blow your mind.

    Yes it is true, but thanks to liberal Environmental wacko's you can't have affordable cheap Energy. The goal is to make Energy expensive to compete with alternative expensive Energy.
    Gas is going to 5 to 7 dollars a gallon.

    I do not see the big picture here.
    Yes I see what you are saying.
    But could the New World Order being trying to use up everyone else oil and $$$ (making us spend our $$$ for oil and not theirs) to bring them to there knees by making us buy crude from abroad using our money?
    Then they would have control over us and everyone else that uses oil by controlling the oil here and abroard in one very large lake of oil here in our back yard. Just like OPEC is doing now to the world only with a AGENDA. Control the world market all of it.
    Might be old mans imagination, but someting is not right in Denmark in my mind about this at all.

    That is a very well thought out statement.
    It could very well be the scenario they are trying to play out.

    One of my neighbors works at the local Valero oil refinery. He recalls reading an article about the Energy plan when Dwight Eisenhower was President. Suppossedly the plan was put in motion then to exhaust the worlds energy supplies while saving as much domestic supply as possible.

    I have search and searched and been unable to find any mention of this on the net.

    You are exactly right flap. That was the plan many years ago and still is. Kind of like the saying "He who dies with the most toys wins."

    First, for years I believed the plan all along has been to deplete the oil reserves of everyone else (something Mudflap brought to light in a post to this thread) and leave ours as much intact as possible. Second, I won't and neither should you accept a "trade off" for cheap energy. Destroying our environment is not acceptable in return for cheap energy.

    I strongly urge you to view the documentary "Gasland." It will give you a better understanding of what is at stake in return for "cheap energy."

    Access to foreign oil first emerged as an issue in U.S. foreign policy following World War I, because of the growing importance of oil to modern industrial society and modern warfare, fear of exhaustion of U.S. domestic reserves, and the need of U.S. companies with foreign markets for additional sources of supply. Although U.S. oil production quickly rebounded with several new oil finds, culminating in the discovery of the great East Texas oil field in 1930, increasing the presence of U.S. companies in foreign oil fields allowed U.S. companies to supply their foreign markets from overseas sources. Not only was foreign oil usually cheaper to produce and transport, thus boosting company profits, but utilizing over-seas oil to meet foreign demand reduced the potential drain on U.S. reserves.

    Quite a long read, but very informative.

    I do know that Pennsylvania was pumping oil before the middle east ever did...i think our state was the first in the world.....It';s a big deal, oil. Some major battles were lost due to lack of oil..WE were the major oil supply for WWI and II(the US) not the ARABS.
