I fear the giving mankind a dependence on anything for support in age or sickness, besides industry and frugality during youth and health, tends to flatter our natural indolence, to encourage idleness and prodigality, and thereby to promote and increase poverty, the very evil it was intended to cure.
The image above aptly and with a needed amount of humor sums up Brandon’s bratty demands when it comes to oil. He doesn’t want and won’t accept US oil; he wants OPEC oil, preferably from the Saudis.
Of course, this is the senile, old Democrat who was handed the Presidency and an energy independent nation only to immediately attack its energy production sector. It’s not really a surprise that his actions caused fuel prices to skyrocket to never before seen or even feared levels.

So, someone wants us all to believe that Morgan Freeman once stated the desire for us to have an annual holiday, Space Day, when all the word’s lights are turned off for a night so that we can better see the stars.
Sadly for every American trying to survive in these times, with Biden’s – or whatever Leftist cabal’s has their hands up in his colon – idiotic and destructive energy policies, it’s getting dangerously close to the point where “lights out” will be every night and possibly every day as well. And that, my fellow besieged Americans, is the dark side of Biden and Co.’s “Build Back Better.”
Yep! Obama vetoed a bill that approved the Keystone XL pipeline which would connect tar sands crude oil in Alberta, Canada with an existing pipeline, allowing 830,000 barrels/day to be pumped to US refineriest.
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said the president vetoed the bill almost as soon as it arrived at the White House.
The presidential power to veto legislation is one I take seriously. But I also take seriously my responsibility to the American people. And because this act of Congress conflicts with established executive branch procedures and cuts short thorough consideration of issues that could bear on our national interest â€” including our security, safety, and environment â€” it has earned my veto.
— Barack Hussein Obama
Truly, the only reason this is newsworthy or noteworthy is that Obama actually lived up to his promise – threat really – this time. He’s promised to veto anything that the Republican-led Congress puts on his desk thirteen separate times and this was the first bill in question.
Nor is the stated reason for Obama’s veto shocking for any reason other than its rare honestly. The boy’s stated reason wasn’t even the environment or Global Warming; it was that he demands the approval process solely the jurisdiction of the Executive branch, i.e., him and his people, specifically his State Department.
Of course, Obama is well and truly within his rights as POTUS to veto any and all bills that reach his desk and to do so for any reason or no reason at all. It’s just sad that America is stuck with a POTUS who chooses to excessive those rights out of narcissism, petulance, and childishness.
As all Americans – and even a large number of Liberals, though essentially NO Blacks – know, Obama is a pathological liar unable to speak the unadulterated truth except in the rarest and most unintentional of instances.
To-date Obama’s singular truth has been one of those rare, unintentional instances. It was when Obama said that energy prices would “necessarily skyrocket” under his regime.

Even this wasn’t a totally unadulterated truth. Obama didn’t manage to get all of his energy agenda enacted. Yet, even so, fuel and electricity costs have risen under his regime, largely due to his and his coterie’s incessant attacks upon the energy sector.
Solving for urban crime should be approached kind of like how the Romans used to conquer little villages in the Mediterranean. They’d go into a little Turkish town somewhere; they’d find the first five guys they saw and they would crucify them. And then you know that town was really easy to manage for the next few years.
And so you make examples out of people who are, in this case, not compliant with the law. Find people who are not compliant with the law, and you hit them as hard as you can and you make examples out of them, and there is a deterrent effect there.
And, neighborhoods that are smart see that; they don’t want to play that game, and they decide at that point that it’s time to clean up. And, that won’t happen unless you have somebody out there making examples of people. So you go out, you look at an neighborhood, you find people violating the law, you go aggressively after them.
That’s my philosophy for solving for urban crime. You go into the ghettos and you crucify a few of the thugs. You make examples out of them and the rest of the hood toes the line.
And we do have some pretty effective enforcement tools. Compliance can get very high, very, very quickly.
You Can’t Do That!
The kindest, gentlest, and most civil cry from the Liberals and their minority tenants would be, “You can’t do that!” Most responses to this philosophy for solving for the Urban Crime question would be far more vicious and vitriolic, with some quarters making various threats of violence and insurrection in response to such practices.
Their response is, of course laughable – though history and current events have both shown Americans that the threats of violence from certain sorts must be taken seriously and dealt with accordingly – because their response is not based upon any sort of objective logic or moral standards.
Simply replace any reference I made to Urban Crime with violations of the EPA’s convoluted regulations and replace any references to neighborhoods or people with oil and gas companies and you have the statement that the EPA’s Region VI Administrator, Al Armendariz about his way of conducting operations in Texas.
Hear any Liberals or their minority tenants crying about tyranny, despotism, the police state, or anything over Al Armendariz’s way of running the EPA in his region? I sincerely doubt it.
