Off Greenspan! That crazy old coot is doing no good for our nation.


This oil company dilema is ridiculous. A minute shipping problem should not cause shortages and price jumps like this. So much for advanced planning, I guess.

Have any of you folks ever been to Alaska? I have, and I've flown out in the bush country there too. I'm not a tree hugger, but the last thing we need to do is destroy the last beautiful place we have left, and it's damn hard to drill without the ecology paying a VERY dear price. The reserves up there aren't going to save our bacon for long. If you visited Alaska, you'd return with the same feeling.

If this country would stop kissing Arab a ss, (remember that almost the entire 9/11 crew was Saudi) and charge them for food, Levis, Coke, heavy equipment, and all the other good sh it they can't and don't make like they charge us for crude, we could even the score. No boycotts necessary. No more American goods without fair oil prices. Period.

I remember flying over the east coast/Nova Scotia area during the last energy crisis in the 70's- there were 'low in the water' tankers offshore for as far as the eye could see, and what little gas you could get at the pumps (when in line forever) was priced out of this world. Deja vu?
Hold on to your hat, Fred...............

Have you seen the place they want to drill in Alaska? Nothing but mud flats and mosquitoes in the summer and frozen tundra in the winter. This is no jewel they're trying to protect.

The Dept of Energy website says that the oil reserves in Alaska are extremely small. It would ease some of our demand, but only for a very short time.

I'm sure it will get drilled out, someday, as a last resort. Probably when things turn really desperate.
