Energy Secretary Give Himself An “A” For Gas Prices

I was almost - almost - speechless.  I paid $3.99 a gallon for regular gas two days ago.  That cost me about $85.00 to fill up the SUV.  My wife and I spend over $700.00 a month on gas.  ON GAS!  When Obama took office, gas was around $1.80 per gallon.  Now it's $4.00. We all know we're getting hammered at the pump.  But now we have to listen to Obama chief at the Department … [Read more...]

First it was global cooling. Then … [Read more...]

The Biggest Lie

We can't drill our way out of this.  Oh - that's rich.  Do these politicians and Bill O'Reily think we're stupid?  OF COURSE WE CAN.
