    What a bunch of rubs. What the hell do you think has been paying for your extravagance all of these years?
    When are you people out here going to embrace the money you state can make instead of always bitching?
    I am an Illinois relocating person, and get tired of hearing and reading your bitches.

      If you have a point to make, make it.
      If you are just ranting, then why are you posting here ?

    It would be interesting to know how they got to the Capital today. Seriously?
    They would rather be at the mercy of ALL these countries that hate us and do not fear us anymore, when our own country is rich with oil and can create jobs for which we NEED; not just now…but generations to come. These are the people who voted for this administration! GOD HELP US ALL!

      “They would rather be at the mercy of ALL these countries that hate us and do not fear us anymore,”

      I’m sure you are aware that the US is currently exporting more refined products than we are importing from all OPEC nations combined. So the only ones that NEED to replace OPEC oil are the billionaire refinery owners in the Gulf, who use that OPEC oil to export refined products to foreign nations.
      Incidentally these are the same billionaire refinery owners that stand to profit handsomely from the Keystone XL.

      “when our own country is rich with oil and can create jobs for which we NEED”

      Yes, our own country is greatly increasing our domestic oil supply, and creating many jobs in North Dakota and Texas’ Permian basin and Eagle Ford, to the point where EIA data shows that we did cut our NET oil imports in HALF in only 5 years, mostly producing nice light sweet crude that refines well into gasoline for our DOMESTIC market..

      So why do we need to IMPORT ultra-heavy bitumen from Canada, which refines mostly into diesel and pet-coke for export ?
