The American summer is in full swing. The calendar says it is summer. The temperature gauge says it is summer and even with the metrological calendar it is now officially summer.
Americans are enjoying many of our traditional summer pastimes. We are watching and playing baseball, going to the pool and some Americans can still take vacations.
While we try to enjoy this summer, could we be looking at the last American summer?
A few weeks ago, Donald Trump accused Obama of making a deal with Saudi Arabia to pump more oil to drive prices down before the election.
Trump could be right. Reuters reported two days ago that Saudi Arabia had pushed its daily production to 10 million barrels a day, creating an oil surplus.
Gas prices, instead of soaring to $4 or even $5 a gallon this summer are now on a slow steady descent to $3 a gallon.
But what happens after Obama is reelected?
Does anyone really believe he will do anything to drive down the price of oil? Even though it is an election year, his EPA is trying to destroy coal production in this nation and trying to force coal fired power plants out of operation.
Does anyone remember that moron Steven Chu? He is Obama’s energy secretary. If there was ever a poster child for the absolute eradication of a government agency, it is Steven Chu and the Department of Energy.
Chu is the dimwit who once said that we needed the same kind of gas prices they have in Europe. At the time, gas prices in Europe were about $10 a gallon.
Chu claims he no longer wants “European level” gas prices. If you believe that, I have some ocean front property in Nashville to sell you.
Since Obama was sworn in, he has backed every failed and unworkable “energy” program. Obama calls them green energy programs. The only thing that is green about them is the cash that is being thrown at Party of Treason cronies. He has attacked and tried to destroy fossil fuel production in America, while supporting it everywhere else.
The United States is sitting on the world’s largest confirmed reserves of oil and gas and Obama has said he wants America to be Brazil’s top purchaser of energy. He does not want us to get Canadian oil, nor does he even want American oil. He wants us to buy our energy from an anti American regime in Brazil.
Given his history, what can we expect with four more years of Obama?
If we have four more years of Obama, we can expect his energy programs to go into overdrive. He will squander even more money on those alternative energy programs that do not work and do everything possible to destroy oil, gas, coal and nuclear energy in America.
If Obama is reelected, we will look back longingly at the days when gas was only $4 a gallon. We will look back to the days when we could afford to use the air conditioner in the summer. We will look back to the days when almost anyone could fly and when we took summer vacations.
In short, Obama’s war on energy is a war on Americans.
Obama does not care if his energy programs do not work as long as he can funnel government money to his cronies. He will not care if he bankrupts and destroys America’s energy companies because they support Republicans. He will not care if those who earn their livings from the vacation industry are bankrupted. He does not care if businesses fail because of expensive energy because it will not affect him.
He remains part of the far left elite. He will not have to worry about getting a flight somewhere or paying for the electricity for his air conditioning.
Obama’s war on energy is a war on America. Obama said he wanted to transform America. If he gets four more years, he will transform it into something we neither recognize nor want.
Actually, Nero didn't fiddle. His instrument was the same one barry's should be--the lyre.
People in Europe were dying last winter because of the "green" energy policies.
Europe has a number of very old countries that could do quite well (as they did 50 years ago) if they did not buy into this "Need for the chick lifestyle like us Americans have done" !
We all "Need to slow down this train" before we all have a collision !
Vern, remember several years ago about 600+ elderly people in France died because of their record hot summer? Energy prices are so high in socialist/marxist countries that most can't afford air conditioning?
Keeping energy prices high is another way government can create a form of population control. Cutting back on Medicare costs, is used by the government because they expect many to die first. The money saved could be directed to other bailouts, and the lists goes on.
Who are the first to suffer.....seniors.
Could be even worse in the US!
Southern population has exploded over the past 50 years, largely attributable to air conditioning and acceptable energy costs. We are not in a good position for high energy costs, less well suited than France. Lower latitudes, more continental temperature extremes. Translation: we're screwed!
That is right, but we must chose Congressmen and women who are willing to fight back, to tell Obama that he CAN'T close down coal until he has a working replacement, and not just a green investment. He has to prove that it will work as well as coal before he will be allowed to attempt to close Coal, who's employees are not likely to allow it. They are strong, and I believe they will fight back.. We need Congress to pass a law that we will not buy one gallon of oil from abroad until we bring our mines into action and bring more refineries into play.In short, we will not buy foreign Gas or oil or electricity until it is proven cheaper and more functional. We have to get tough with Obama if he wins. We need to tell him, 2 weeks vacation per year, and we will not provide transportation, or lodging. We need to bring our economy back before the goodies can be provided. He may not want to run if we won't sweeten the pot. No weekly parties at the White House,nor at major restaurants, and the expenses are on Obama. No special trips for Michelle and the girls either. We need to bring the debit and unemployment down sugnificantly. If we can do austerity, so can he.
Don't look for any help from most of California--you've seen the functional idiots (pelousy, waters, waxman, feinstein, boxer, miller, et. al.) that the sheeple here send to DC. We apparently have genetically linked morons in the state house here.
The United States of America must return to being a "Sovereign Nation" ! We have to pay our debts and make no more. Live according to our "means" and protect our people from Crime & Other Forms of terrorism.
The "Juvenile Delinquents" that are walking the streets of The USA "looking for soft targets to rape, rob, and murder must be stopped.
Parents will "teach" their children to respect and obey The Rule of Law or they will have more Trayvon Martin, as a result of their not doing so.
Why are we gloom and doom? We need to expose the deal Obama made with the Saudis to the American people. Yes, we need to claim that is the reason why the sudden decrease of oil prices, not because Obama is a great economist. Then we must ask the American people, but what will happen after the election?
It won't be the American spring....it will be the American Armageddon, the end game. We need to scare the people, not rationalize. The opposition has always been successful with that tactic. Perhaps it's time for us to do the same.
You are right ! Obama reminds me of being at the Carnival and the "Carnie" hollering "3 balls for a dollar to win a Teddy Bear" !
Obama "runs in after 4 years of doing nothing but stirring up discontent" and starts "giving people all day suckers" !
He is a "Medicine Man" with a quick word and slight of hand !
