Dave,

Interesting story! Never thought the world's oldest industry would be among the first to suffer. However, perhaps, like the housing market, their rates were grossly inflated and their bubble has been burst!

Saw this storyy a week or so ago and I think it was on The Daily Show or maybe it was the Colbert Report. Ether way it was a hillarious story when they did it.
For what it's worth..... I'm not gonna get suckered into any long debate over the "fuel issue" but I would like to say my peace. Since we have moved past Capitalism into the uncharted territory of Ludicracy.....I can't wonder what we're all going to do a year or more from now and certainly can't wait until the rest of the Middle class to finally decides to remove their heads from where ever they are and see what's going on. /DesktopModules/NTForums/themes/mls/emoticons/whistling.gif
See ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, everyone should demand that we start drilling off our own shores and back on all of our land. The enviros have our hands tied, and people better wake up. To heck with the spotted short tailed lizard...............people should come first.

Never mind the environment. Look after #1 first.
But not to worry. All the oil will run out one day and we won't have to worry anyway.

The advantage you Austrialians have is you filmed all those BIKER APOCALYPSE movies down in Austrailia and you have a first hand idea on what to do when everything falls apart.
PS I always thought those movies were fun.

I love the line in that article about the most important thing after food (for men anyway)!! I bet the reporter was happy to be assigned to that story, and not some other regular 'we got bit by rattlesnakes' story..

The way I see it, I'll be long dead before the oil runs out, and at the pace that all the hand wringers are moving at to bring us an alternative, I suspect so will they.

I'm all for alternative methods of energy. I'll be the second person to ride on a solar powered airplane, right behind the person who advocates it's returns from their successful first flight.

Yes, just as you were thankful for what your Father, Grandfather, & Great Grandfather provided for you.

The enviro folks are way out of line. They do not want the U. S. to drill off of Florida, so now China will. Lets see how much China cares about the enviroment. They will care about as much for the enviroment as they do their own people. We have plenty of oil, it's just a small minority of people that keep us from using it. And yes, I do think that people are more important then any animal on this earth...............and proud to say it.

But as usual, many will get in line to blame it all on big companies, and also how America is the bad guy.

I was under the impression that the present "OUTLAWING" of drilling off our shores and other places was done with and EXECUTIVE ORDER Signed by a president.

Can a exectuve order be recendided by another president?

If that is true then it would be real easy to change things. But I guess it's just not going to happen

I am sure the dedicated keepers of American security would be interested to find out when China proposes drilling off the coast of Florida.
