Positive and Upbeat

Oil reserves

Eagle Ford Shale Formation http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eagle_Ford_Formation

We all need to stay positive and upbeat.  With the discovery of the Eagle Ford Shale Formation oil reserves the US now his more oil reserves than the rest of the world combined.

Now’s the time to nationalize US oil reserves and production, sell gasoline to US drivers for 25 cents a gallon, and make a deal with the other oil producing countries of the world.  Run the price of oil up to $1000 per barrel and bleed them dry.  Squeeze every country that doesn’t have any oil until they are walking or riding bicycles, heating their bath water on wood fires, plowing their fields behind mules and oxen.

We’ve been patient with the rest of the world up until now, and look at the good it’s done.  Do they love us?  No.  They don’t even agree with us on a lot of things.

But now we can set them straight, finally. Put those Japanese back up to their knees in the rice paddies where they belong.  Sell toasters and rubber monster toys to the Chinese if they can find any money to buy them.

We can bring back the good old days of everyone having a good job without anyone having to go to work.  Hire Mexicans to do it all.

Thumb our noses at Arab Sheiks and Shaws who used to have more oil than us.

Positive and upbeat with good old American know-how to keep the home fires burning.

  1. Jules, this is point on. With the mostest oil reserves the US can drive the price up and up. History shows me that during the 70’s and 80’s the US was indeed held hostage over oil by the ones who had the reserves then. All sound good up to here…. but those that held us hmmph the US hostage in the past expended all the monies of the nationalized oil to build the armies (at a detriment to any social expenses of the citizens) to become a nuisance to the world powers. Just think, with this idea, the US could soon have a well funded military.

    Good up to now and the idea has merit…. slow down on the nationalization of the US oil for awhile……at least until the Jap and Chinese corporations go all in…. investing mega dollars in buying the oil properties and oil corporations in the US as is currently underway.

  3. I’m so glad you’re back! The cynical voice of reason in the lunatic world.
