You're right...but you're not

While I agree with your comment to suggest we become energy independent they will not be eating sand anytime soon. The growing energy demands in India and China will ensure the flow of cash to the Middle-East for a long time. The result of our no longer buying Middle-East oil will be the end of the U.S. dollar as the petro dollar which has propped up it's value artificially. But I still suggest it's time we stood on our own two feet when it comes to energy.


Let Them Eat Oil Sands

It's impossible to sort all of the disinformation from a coherent understanding of the myriad factions and shifting allegiances and third party back room deals.

Since it's impossible for us Ameddicans (sic) to send our bales upon bales of cash over there to any entity at all and have the least bit of accurate accounting, let's stop this monumental drain from our Treasury and turn off the dollar hydrant altogether.

The whole World since 1917 has been the beneficiary of our dollar hydrant.

In return, we hear "Americans! Go! Home!

O.K., America! Now's our grand opportunity.

Reportedly, our natural gas and oil production is increasing to the point of our approaching petro energy independence.

Let them eat sand.

Let them eat sand!
