Gas Shock Clocked, Writer’s Block Stopped

     Understanding Readers,

     We have not posted for a week or so. One of our last posts detailed problems with the pc and an outage at Verizon’s internet banks.  Yesterday, a Verizon worker came to my house after three days of me switching out old wires, phones, jacks, you-name-it, only to tell me that my phone line had been disconnected at the main office, for no reason.

     Falling off the face of the earth, with no phone or internet, was a very strange, lost feeling.  I felt disconnected and could not communicate with friends or go on the stock market or watch videos of fuzzy kittens.  Once used to it, the amount of work that had been put off for no particular reason became easy to tackle without the interference of the web.  I got a lot of interference from my cat, Inkie, but she is just a bug no matter what.

     Nonetheless, my trusty auto, which has been taking me from here to there since 2004, sucked up over $50 worth of gas the other day.  In seven years, it never took $50 worth.  This does not bode well for my idea of the crosscountry kittie caravan in the 30foot RV.  It makes me wonder how much more people will take. 

     Of course, as usual, there is always somebody to blame…now who would we blame if America was rich in oil and natural gas, yet the people living here are not able to afford to fill their cars, trucks and oil tanks at home?  Who would we blame if all the gas and oil we are allowed to consume has to be shipped from halfway across the world, while people who produce gas here could do it cheaper but are not allowed to because of hidden political agendas?  Who would we point to as the Anti-Christ?  If you said ‘Obama’ you could be right on all counts.

     My next door neighbor does not like Obama.  She is 82 years old and was a nurse for many years of her life, in facilities around Long Island, NY, where she is from.  She says she learned to read people’s faces and can tell when people lie about being in pain or caring about others or other facial ‘giveaways’.  She does not like the look on Obama’s puss and you have to admit, he is one of the MEANEST-looking presidents we ever had.  I can only remember back to Kennedy but nobody in that office ever gave the dirty looks that Obama can deal out to those who disagree with him. Sorta like this…

     So, it can be pretty obvious that he does not like people.  That would explain why he wants to screw his own country in a way that will take the rest of history to undo.  Five states now have gas above the $4 line and he can ride around on Air Force One and look down on us.  He could tell SecRATary of the Interior Salazar to stop the moritorium on american oil companies.  BP is drilling in Alaska, where a lot of people think our reserves are…guess what? They are BP’s reserves now…we are not allowed to drill but BP can because they are not American, yet they drill on our soil.  We are giving our resources to BP so they can resell them back to us at an elevated price.

     Why?

     Because we let him; because we elected him (not me), and because we do nothing about his actions now but to watch in awestruck horror as he dismantles the economy and ruins the lives of countless millions in the Gulf.

     Soon it will be April 20.  420.  We suggest that on that day, nobody take any substances which will muddle their thoughts.  We suggest that you get together, as planned…but instead of getting high, figure out how to use your votes to get this disaster off our backs and out of office.  Once that is done, you can get high…if you are lucky.

How About Them Pirates?

     Pictured is the Italian oil tanker, Caylyn, which was hi-jacked on the high seas by Somali pirates the day before they siezed the Greek oil tanker, with its two hundred million dollars worth of crude oil.  Two ships in two days is pretty good.  The Greek tanker,  Mount Irene, was worth a hundred million dollars by itself, even if it were empty, which it wasn’t.

     Hostages are taken and ransoms are paid and the pirates are doing pretty well, for their part.  They are keeping foreign oil from reaching the US and since the Obama people do not want American oil companies to survive, it will just drive prices on fuel oil and gasoline even higher.  Of course, we could produce our own oil in the US but the White House prefers to make the public pay for the high-priced imported stuff.

     There has been talk of miltary action against the pirates but nobody is sure which military from which country should handle this.  It is sort of like which country has the military forces in Afghanistan which allow 95 tons of heroin and 120 tons of opium to slip through Tajikistan each year, according to the United Nations.  The drugs are then trafficked to Russia, where they are processed for worldwide distribution and addiction.  It just makes us wonder how they get it past all those troops we have over there.  Somebody is not keeping watch.

     Anti-drug sentiment has hit fever-pitch in the US but the only way to stop the flow is to stop the customers from wanting the product.  We are a nation of consumers and we were brought up to be such, with subliminal cues used in TV commercials using sex and hidden images to convince us that we want to buy whatever they have to sell us. 

     People at the Mexican border opine that if marijuana were not illegal, then it would not be as easy to ship the hard drugs into the US. The illegality of pot has created a cover for other, much more seriously damaging drugs to hit the market.  Funds from pot sales help with the smuggling.  This could not happen if it were legal, like it was 100 years ago, when wars had endings and we trusted the people we elect.

     So now it is time to watch the pirates and see who’s ship they steal next. Where do they park them, we wonder?

Raising Questions…Pirates Steal $200,000,000.00 Worth Of Fuel Oil

     Gentle Readers, even a kittie like ‘Sissy’ here has to wonder about the pirates who just stole over two hundred million dollars worth of oil, when they hi-jacked a tanker bound for North America.

     Kitties like this are not notoriously smart, yet, even Sissy is smart enough to wonder where the pirates are going to bury the booty, er, hide the stolen goods.  What do you do with a tanker that big?  If somebody buys it from you, they can’t hide the empty oil tanker, even parked behind the house.

     If the oil had been produced in America, which is rich in resources but is more interested in making profits for mideastern oil-producers, it could not have happened.  Will this drive prices even higher?  Is this the first time or is it the first of a long line of stolen oil tankers?

     We have plenty of oil in the gulf, where we were producing it at high steam until a British oil company blew a hole in the ocean floor.  Naturally, the response of the President-elected was to stop all production of American oil.  When one thinks about it logically, even Sissy can tell you that when you have a leaky faucet (like the one she likes to drink from) and turn it off, the pressure will build.  It works the same with oil…if you have a big, uncontrolled gusher on the ocean floor, what is going to happen when you shut down all the surrounding oil rigs and wells?  The pressure builds and more oil spews into the ocean.  If the surrounding oil wells had been permitted to keep producing, a large amount of what hit the coast and fish and birds and economy there, may still be intact.  The oil could have been expertly put into barrels and sold, or even stored.

     Allowing the pressure to build and destroy the environment surrounding the break and ecosysytems worldwide, peripherally, was a very bad way to handle it.  The break has been fixed and the oil wells owned by Americans are still shut down, so we buy boatloads of millions of dollars in petroleum from countries who do not even like us.

     Why are the American oil companies still under a White House-imposed moratorium?

     Why do we have pirates who can steal such a large item and get away without a hitch (so far)?

     Where do those pirates plan to sell that oil?

     Does the country or company or entity that buys the oil share in the crime?

     Will anybody ever do anything about it?

     Can I have some more tuna juice in my bowl?

     The answers to these and many other questions remain unsolved and we wonder why…

Judge Holds Obama Administration ‘In Contempt’ Over American Oil

 

                                                                          Welcome back to The Tipping Point.  A lot of the ‘tipping’ going on revolves around oil, petroleum, black gold…texas tea.  Edna Ferber’s novel, Giant, probably would not fly as a movie today, like it did in 1956,  starring James Dean, Elizabeth Taylor and Rock Hudson.  It was about the American Dream and greed and oil and redemption.  The old American Dream has gone ‘out to lunch’ and everybody who voted for Obama has a hand in destroying the economies of the Gulf and other regions supported by activity collateral to oil production.  This includes hotels, restaurants, stores and any business catering to visitors or workers located there.

     The Obama suits do not want to allow American oil companies to return to work, a stoppage caused by a foreign oil company.  It is a very cold winter in the Northeast United States this year and the cost of heating oil has gone up substantially since last winter, not to mention the price of has at the pumps.  If American companies were allowed to do what they have been doing since 1859 oil could be sold, people could return to work, handouts from the Fed wouldn’t be necessary and we could try to get back to normal.

     Oil, gas, petroleum…this is the real world currency, not the Sterling Pound, the Euro or the Dollar.  Today,  Obama said he wants to “support the economy and invest in this nation.”  He may want to but when does he intend to start, to take action to…how did he put it when you voted for him…change?

     See attached an example of how actions speak louder than words and how a federal judge holds the US in contempt. Tell us if you think it makes any sense. Right.  

February 3, 2011 12:03am EST
NEW ORLEANS, Feb. 2, 2011 — /PRNewswire/ — The Offshore Marine Service Association today praised a federal judge’s ruling holding the U.S. Interior Department in civil contempt and called for the Obama Administration to end its de facto moratorium on offshore drilling in the Gulf of Mexico.

“The ruling highlights the disparity between President Obama’s stated policy objectives — to grow jobs and promote American energy independence — and his actions, which instead deliver higher unemployment, higher fuel prices and greater dependency on foreign energy sources. This ruling demonstrates the President is more interested in shutting down our domestic oil and gas production than he is in establishing clear rules to enhance safety and environmental protection. President Obama’s policies are destroying American jobs and exporting American technology to countries that value safe offshore energy production,” said Jim Adams, president and CEO of the Offshore Marine Service Association (OMSA).

“President Obama claims to have lifted the Gulf moratorium, yet not a single deepwater permit has been issued in nine months. As a result, thousands of workers are out of jobs, Americans are paying more for gasoline and heating oil, and our nation is becoming even more dependent on unstable nations for our energy needs,” Adams said.

“President Obama talks a lot about jobs and energy independence,” Adams added. “Now it’s time for him to back up his words with action and call off his de facto moratorium. Americans want an end to this manmade disaster.”

Judge Martin Feldman ruled Wednesday that the Interior Department disregarded his earlier injunction against the Administration’s drilling moratorium. In June, Feldman had struck down the moratorium that the Administration had imposed, saying that the government simply assumed that because one oil rig had triggered a spill, other rigs were just as dangerous.

Interior Secretary Kenneth Salazar responded by instituting a second moratorium that was nearly identical to the one the judge had thrown out.

The government’s “dismissive conduct,” Feldman wrote, “viewed in tandem with the reimposition of a second blanket and substantively identical moratorium and in light of the national importance of this case, provide this Court with clear and convincing evidence of the government’s contempt of this Court’s preliminary injunction Order.”

OMSA represents the owners and operators of U.S. flag offshore service vessels and the shipyards and other businesses that support that industry.

State of the Nation…Will His Nibs Continue to Screw American Oil Companies?

     Gentle Readers,

     Last night, we watched the Asian news, which is really today’s news, broadcast twelve hours ahead of time. This type of news from Asia is of the financial nature and deals with what is happening with the world markets at that hour, like CNBC and Bloomberg Business news do during the day in America.

     We could not help but notice how so many foreign nations are having record-breaking outputs of crude oil in recent months. The statistics are staggering. We all should be staggered, since the Gladhander-In-Chief will not allow America to make any money on oil. This in the middle of a so called, media-driven economic crisis.

     Why does America buy oil from other countries when we have oil companies right here that are all bollocksed up in the barbedwire of the Obama Doctrine. We have oil. We could make money and charge taxes and put people to work and help the economy, sort of like we could with marijuana. In fact, it is ironic that the pot advocates often note how oil can be made from the marijuana plant, which is why the big oil companies pay your elected officials to vote against legalizing it.

     Doesn’t anybody in government want their own country to start making profits on something?

      Your Humble Narrator does not have much more to say on the subject now but it is something we hope to comment on tomorrow. In the meantime, we are wondering if he is going to use his patented ‘black preacher’s voice’ tonight, as he often does in emotional situations. I think that voice is very manipulative and am amazed he does not have comedians doing stand-up about it…but that would sound racist.

     Let’s see how bad we get screwed again tonight. The show never ends!

Thanks, Obama! Who Needs American Oil? We Depend on Foreign Oil!!!!

     Informed Intellects, One and All,

     We actually break the focus on the murder of John Winston Lennon to give a tip’o’the hat to our hypocrit Commander and Thief, Baccarat Obama.

      Thanks to his childish display of emotion, directed at the lunkheads who voted for the chump, hahahahaha, er, ha, he has so universally alienated himself that we at CFYOSA no longer need to insult him…for the moment.

     This past week, he admonished the people who elected him. He was angry and you could see it. Good for him. The crowd should have thrown eggs but it was just the press corps. If he spoke to a live audience the way he addressed the American People yesterday, he would have been diving the flying shoe like Bush had to.

     It is sad to see him self-immolate…then, again, nah…he deserves it. He has been lying, cutting deals, smoking pot in the Oval Office and buggering the maturing White House pooches he bought for his daughters.

     Another good move by this jackass has been his deliberate shut-off of opportunity to the wounded unfortunates in the Gulf of Mexico – on the American side…the Mexicans are making billions of dollars in marijuana revenue. Our Fearless (with our money) Leader, in the days after the BP oil fountain became the biggest aquatic attraction since Gov. Cartman, Chris Christie (R-NJ) got his fat ass caught in the gubernatorial bathtub and had to be evacuated by being saturated in butter and pried out with a couple of lifeboat oars that were handily available. He decided to shut down all oil production by American companies in the Gulf.

     It is bad enough that Katrina decimated the whole society in the region, practically, but to shut down a major source of cashflow to the victimized areas is an inexcusable sin. Does anybody take ito consideration that children in certain areas of this country (USA) go hungry as a direct result of the actions of this ‘First Father’. Obama appears to be our most abusive First Father, promising us the love but never coming though. Besides the oil industry being shutdown, along with them go the hotels, grocery stores, hardware, sustainables, beer, K2, beer, sustainables, etc…a whole infrastructure of industry is left in limbo thanks to the December 1 decision to continue a moratorium on Gulf drilling by US oil companies. So far, heating oil is up about 18% over last year, according to my bills. Obama will be sure to drive the prices higher. It is calculated when you consider the drill moratorium and the Marcellus Shale free for all, which Pennsylvania Governor Elect Tom (Coronary-Bait) Corbett sold ‘transition team’ tickets to at the price of $1,500,000 per ducat.

     When the BP well leaked and spewed oil in all directions, what did Obama do? He declared that all wells in the Gulf be shut down, pronto. So, instead of having a bunch of American companies catching the oil at the rigs and putting it conveniently into barrels, the US-owned wells were shut down. Think of the dynamics involved here. You have a bunch of wells and one breaks, spewing oil. Shut down all the others and what is the result? D-uhhhh. Ever hear of pressure? Like that gauge on your car – oil pressure? Like when you flush the toilet while somebody is in the shower? By shutting down the US rigs, Obama effectively allowed seismic pressure build and force the oil into the ocean, as opposed to the handy barrels which would have made a profit for American oil companies, taken a little pressure off the economy, kept thousands of oilmen and realted-industry-workers off of unemployment and BEEN THE RIGHT THING TO DO.

      Osama Olama Obama, the spirits are about to speak and they are saying that you suck, bigtime. It is one distinction to be the first black president. Why not be the first suicidal president? It may be messy but it would set an example for a lot of would-bes who are in that position due to your policy fumblings. If you are reading this Mr. Obama, as a substance abuser, you owe us one for the pot trick you pulled. Bow out and allow a real President to take over and get something done. You are worthless.

     No wonder South Korea thinks they are Number One!
