Congressman fiddles while his electors burn with anger

4 07 2008

A few weeks ago I decided to tell my Congressman Charlie Wilson (no, not the one from the movie) of Ohio’s sixth district, that I was fed up with the price of gas. so I got on his website and left a very simple and direct message to him.

“Drill here, Drill now, or be Replaced”

I would think that I was in a chorus of voices telling Congressman Wilson that we need to increase supply to decrease prices.

Ohio’s 6th district is probably the most gerrymandered district in the nation. It starts on the south side of Youngstown, Ohio and goes south till it hits the Ohio river and then follows it for the next 100 miles, while its east-west depth is no more than 30 miles at any point. It is the text book definition of “rust belt”

Congressman Wilson’s campaign adds in 2006 made a point of him walking past closed businesses saying he would keep what jobs we have left here. The jobs are still leaving, and the surplus of labor is driving wages down while the cost of living goes up.

So, I get a reply from Congressman Wilson. in it he tries to change the subject from his responsibility to the voters to do as we say, to the evil oil company’s holding to much land in leases.

Since 2001, the price of a gallon of regular gasoline in Ohio has risen more than 130-percent. This is seriously squeezing working families, forcing small businesses to make painful decisions and hurting our economy. Bringing gas prices down will involve a series of steps, including the development of U.S. oil and gas resources on federal lands.

The first step is to focus on the millions of acres already leased for oil production that aren’t being used. Today, an estimated 68 million acres of onshore and offshore land leased by oil companies remain undeveloped.

Might that be because it can not be effectively developed?

According to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), if the United States were to drill in the nearly 68 million acres of federal land currently available for lease to oil companies, the U.S. could produce an additional 4.8 million barrels of oil per day. That would nearly double total U.S. oil production and would be six times the estimated peak production from ANWR.

Again there might be that much oil there, but would it cost more per gallon to get it out?

Today, there are more than 91 million acres open to leasing in the Arctic region of Alaska, including onshore and offshore land. Of the available land, oil and gas companies have only leased 11.8 million acres. In addition, 80-percent of the oil available on the OCS is already open for leasing—but the oil companies haven’t committed the money to drill there. While I support the development of oil and gas resources on federal lands, I cannot support opening additional arctic land or more land on the OCS, until oil and gas companies begin to use the land already available to them.

Do you hear the sweet sound of a fiddle? I do.

I believe the government has worked hard to make the land available; now oil companies need to do their part. That’s why I have cosponsored HR 6251, the Responsible Federal Oil and Gas Lease Act. This important legislation would force oil and gas companies to either drill on or forfeit federal onshore and offshore leases.  Under this legislation, companies would be banned from obtaining any more leases unless they can demonstrate that they are producing oil and gas, or are diligently developing the leases they already hold.  Similar and effective rules already apply to coal companies.

You forgot to leave out the part where the federal rules are if a oil company does not develop a land by the end of ten years the lease expires. What, you thought we wouldn’t catch your disingenuous statements about how unfair the rules are towards the oil companys?

I know that out-of-control gasoline prices are a top concern of the residents of Ohio’s Sixth Congressional District. I promise I will continue to support legislation that will ease the burden that you and so many others are feeling because of gas prices.

Sincerely,

Charles A. Wilson
Member of Congress

Yes we are mad. we can not afford this and we see you dodging the issue. I am a voter hence I am your boss. Here is the legislation I want you to support.

Drill Here, Drill Now!

Or you will be replaced.

All he wanted was three weeks away from You!

4 07 2008

East Liverpool School Superintendent Ken Halbert took a three week vacation this summer. It is a well deserved rest from the annoyance that is Gary Bunnell. But, Gary couldn’t get the hint.

Things were not right in the kingdom of Gary’s mind, for his need to be in control of everything was not satisfied. He realized that with Mr. Halbert gone, no one could act as purchasing agent and order things for the district. So he wanted the board to act to appoint one. That went as well as you suspect, considering the hostile work environment Gary has created on the ELSD board. A 2-2 tie with everybody upset. While I don’t agree with Mr. Matt Stewart over at Ohio River Life saying that things would go better if they were stoned, I hope the fine folks of East Liverpool will rember who is to blame at the next school board election.

The thing that got me was the instructions Mr. Halbert left behind. “If you need me before that time, please only telephone me on my cell phone in the event of an emergency.” We all know that a hangnail is an absolute life or death emergency to Gary. The storm that went through East Liverpool on the 29th of June had damaged a air vent at North Elementary and set off an alarm. This situation was handled by the maintenance supervisor Mr. Mark Reed.

So, has Gary left Mr. Halbert alone to enjoy three weeks stress free? Of course not. He had called him every day. Gary was totaly cluless as to why Mr. Halbert hasn’t called him back. Let me fill you in, if I was on vacation, I wouldn’t want to talk to your petty, self-centered, popinjay butt either!

And NAMBLA rejoices

26 06 2008

Yesterday the Supreme Court delivered a 5-4 decision that makes it illegal to impose the death penalty for a case of child rape.

Once again proving that the Supremes can overturn law that is passed by a legislature not because it is banned by the constitution, but because we are a “maturing society”

If we were maturing we wouldn’t have child rape, because the rights of all would be respected. This is another “down is up” argument from the court.

This is another decision that brings us closer to NAMBLA, (North American Man Boy Love Association) for those who don’t know (google or wikipedia them, just have a barf bucket ready),  declaring open season on our children.

Misha, over at the Rott rips into the court with the viciousness they deserve.

I would ask Murtha to apologize

5 06 2008

But I know better. Another falsely accused Marine has been acquitted. Did you hear that Murtha, you treasonous, liberal moon bat louse. My apologizes to any real louses offended by my comparison.

From the USAToday website.

CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. (AP) — A Marine intelligence officer accused of trying to cover up the killings of 24 Iraqis appeared stunned at first when a jury acquitted him of the charges.

I’m sure he was stunned, the full force and weight of the federal government was poured into this bogus case because the journalist traitors listened to the enemy and brought the “embarrassment of PA” John “I am a veteran, so you cant question my treason now” Murtha, in to be their spokesman. Murtha slandered the US Military, and its honorable warriors.

Well, another case has fallen apart, BECAUSE NOTHING ILLEGAL HAPPENED, sorry for yelling. but the marines were fired upon, they returned fire and the coward terrorists hid behind their women and children, and kept firing till they were killed. the deaths are on their heads. Only treasonous, brainwarped, liberal moonbats think that marines kill innocents just for the hell of it.

The Marine in this case, 1st Lt. Andrew Grayson, Is the epitamy of a class act.

Grayson said early on in the case he refused a deal that would have reduced charges and kept him out of prison.

“I was the one that had to look at myself in the mirror. To take the easy way out, you are the one that has to live with that,” he said.

He could have taken a plea and hung the other marines, but he has more integrity than Murtha can ever impune. What a terrible waste of taxpayer money on this farce of a trial. And unfortunately there are more trials.

In a perfect wold, Murtha would be ran out off office for lying, sued for slander, and executed for Treason. His compatriots in journalism would be sued for libel and executed for treason. But like i said, in a perfect world.

Reason # 49 that Liberalism is a mental illness

24 05 2008
As it is Memorial Day weekend, I thought I would share how a liberal democrat, Rep. Pete Stark (CA-13), views our fine military. Wait for it…
With complete and utter contempt. In a letter reprinted over at the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler, go read it there I’ll wait till you get back, he disgraces the honor of these fine warriors for what he perceives as wasting taxpayers money watching how congress works. And you think that you can do it with impunity, your wrong again.
Why Representative Stark, do you think that understanding how our government functions is a concept below the capability of an officers thinking?
No, wait, do you think they were there to intimidate you? If so, you really are a paranoid, delusional popinjay.

Considering that you were debating a military spending bill at the time, you were just feeling guilty, because you were sticking another knife in their backs.

There is millions of dollars being wasted everyday in our government. You should be attending to that instead of a couple of hours of some officer’s pay.

They were probably envious; they do something to improve America. You’re getting paid and not improving America, I guess that makes you a goldbrick.

Go ahead and cry, little baby

23 05 2008

I’m starting a new feature on this fine blog. Treasonous Twit on Parade, T2P for short.

So Today’s Treasonous Twit on Parade is Sgt. Corey Glass. This T2P is presently in Canada, hiding from the National Guard which he joined in 2002.

He is one of the estimated 200 American soldiers who have deserted their oath and ran to Canada rather than fight in a war they claim is illegal because it has no United Nations sanction. Hey Idiot, here’s a clue, you’re a United States Soldier not a UN soldier, you’re a trader to the country that gave birth to you. And you’re now wasting precious air in Canada.

Now the good news, on Wednesday, he lost his deportation hearing. Oh boo hoo, go ahead and cry, little baby.  I’ll plug my ears to the sound of your and the other 200 pathetic cowards banging your sippy cups.

It used to be that the army shot deserters; I wish they had the guts to do it now.

Indonesian Churches have to hide in malls

30 04 2008

H/T to LGF

From the BBC

Indonesians seek salvation in shops

Empty shopping malls are eerie, and this one is no different.

But in the dim light of early morning, figures can be seen slipping past the security guards, their footsteps echoing down empty corridors.

It is Sunday morning, not yet 8 o’clock, and the shops are all still locked and shuttered.

But these people have not come to shop; they have come to pray.

Shopping malls in West Java are home to a growing number of Christian congregations. There are 10 in this mall alone.

Now why would that be? Is land hard to get in Indoesia? Probably not.

Few of them want to talk publicly about why they are here, but off the record they admit it comes down to intimidation by Muslim groups.

According to Church groups more than 100 churches have faced attack or intimidation in the past two years.

Well, that really doesn’t surprise me.

Religion or rules?

One of the groups alleged to be behind some of these incidents is the FPI, or Islamic Defenders Front, a radical group that became a household name when it forced Playboy magazine out of Java.

Church leaders allege the group’s members are forcing churches to close through violence and intimidation.

Saipul Abdullah, the head of the FPI in this area, told me that there may be people at the grassroots level who react emotionally.

“They become very angry and frustrated and little eruptions can happen,” he said.

“Maybe they’ll tear down a sign, or shake some doors, or lock some doors, but they don’t really have the right to do that.”

But, he said, this was not about religion. It is about the fact that some churches are not playing by the rules.

Only 20% of the Churches in this province have an official permit to hold religious services.

I guess that alot of Christians in Indonesia don’t want to be salves to Islam. Good for them.
