"Don’t you feel you’re trying a little too hard?"
Not at all.
Gassy ... Was that a response to me? ... It better not be, that's all I got to say.
Jt, 36 sure would be an arbitrary age for someone to choose. If I was going to lie, I would have said I was 25 or 30.
Don’t you feel you’re trying a little too hard?
And Maxipad is a liar, and everyone on here knows it, yet you and a couple of others see the necessity on taking up for him. I busted him a couple of weeks ago in a lie and I'm sure you saw it with your own eyes.
But it is so funny that I know what he’s doing and so should you “bright boys” but he continues to cast it out there and reeling you carp in.
I will respond to all of your other claims when you admit you were wrong earlier yesterday. Until then, I will just avoid your posts like you avoided mine after I showed you were wrong.
I couldn’t care less whether you respond or not. If you don’t it just allows me to take shots at you without you defending yourself.
As far as catching me in a lie you have yet to admit that you misspoke in saying we export more oil than we import. If you had said refined oil products then you would have had a defensible position. However that would have still been a meaningless detail as we have very little need to import refined oil products since we make more than we can possibly use anyway. As a result exporting even small amounts would equal more than the tiny amounts we do import.
Maxipad, I'm 36 years old. I guarantee I am younger than you.
And you’re better educated and richer as well ... Right?
Never took a dime from the government I didn't earn (my pay while I was in the military and the GI Bill).
Is that in currency/coinage or value added? ... You do know what you Fleabaggers have to say about people “not building it themselves” ... don’t you?
And even if I was "a 70 year old on guvment relief" at least I am not a delusional liar such as yourself.
So you say
Life must be exhausting for you being envious of the wealthy all of the time. Keep working that 10.00 an hour job, bro. Eventually, you'll be one of those millionaires you claim to currently be (insert sarcasm now).
And you probably need to get back to work now. I'm sure the manager at the Kangaroo station where you work wouldn't be happy with you surfing the web when you should be ringing up customers items and turning on the gas pumps.
Why are you so hateful and disdainful towards those at the lower end of the income and wealth brackets that you resort to using their plight to attempt the shaming of your political opponents?
Start an initiative similar to the US-Soviet space race in the 50's and 60's or the race to get the A-bomb. There are cars that run without petroleum, but as of now, it's just a niche market.
There no rational analogy there ... military and exploratory space rockets and A-bombs will always be niche markets. Electric vehicle transportation, for the general public, is not; in that it will be widely accepted when it becomes economically and performance viable.
Every American (that is not vested in petroleum) should be supporting this. Until then we are slaves to the oil companies and their lobbyists.
Purchasing an industry’s product due to their better valve in relation to the alternatives is in no way a reasonable definition of being enslaved. The public has shown itself very willing to dump one technology and embrace another, almost instantaneously, when they think their needs and wishes are better served.
BTW ... currently electric cars are more harmful to the environment and any currently available alternate energy source that is politically correct will not power them in mass quantities.
Another shining example of our uneducated citizens. This country is doomed unless we up our quality of education and information. We should move toward more science and learning the English language instead of teaching science fiction and voodoo mythology. our democrat(sic)friends don't want to here(sic) anything** -- is that supposed to be English?
I agree as we need many more pseudo intellectual unemployable English majors to correct everyone's internet posts. It’s a sure path to economic success ... Right?
I don't care at all about gas prices.
WTF ... I thought you were humping the theme that higher gas prices lowered everyone's standard of living including yours ... and now we find out you don’t care about that at all?
Jt, if my prior post about how my family lives gave you the impression that we are living a bare bones existence, I apologize. We live quite well and even though we have made lifestyle changes, we have a quality of life that few can rival.
What the he## are you rambling on about? When have I ever mentioned your family’s lifestyle or standard of living?
We are surrounded by beauty at every turn. We live in a wonderful climate with a little too much dampness for three months followed by near perfection. The deer in the garden are maddening, but we will have a deer fence up by the end of the week. There are very few biting bugs (LMFAO!!) here…don't need screens. Well educated people (Don’t you feel out of place) from every corner of the earth help with a broader understanding of universal issues. No creationists, no climate change deniers.. yep, we've got it pretty good.
Sounds just like someone that would bragging about their wealth, education, intellect, virility, etc. ... just more internet braggadocio.
There are two different perspectives on future oil (and energy) use: the cornucopian and the peak oilers.
The cornucopians assume that one way or another, technology will find a way to keep an ever increasing supply of energy flowing. The peak oilers believe that, for a variety of reasons, much of the remaining fossil fuel resources will never be extracted.
How are those mutually exclusive? Isn’t there a majority overlap between these two. Of course there are some “Blue Sky” optimists among the “cornucopians” and there are “Luddites” among the “peak oilers”.
The graphs showing the soaring amounts of investment to extract a falling amount of energy are like a cold shower to those who examine the charts. There is a reason that major oil companies are cutting back on capital investment dollars.
They are? ... I thought they just spent tens of billions on upgrading their refineries.
Almost no major oil companies buy into fracking as a solution. Why? The numbers are horrible and somebody is going to be left holding the bag on those investments as the wells-drilled numbers can't keep up with the soaring depletion numbers.
Why Six Big Oil and Fracking Companies Just Became Great Stocks to Buy

Not too long ago, more than 80 percent of U.S. gas supplies were produced by “mom-and-pop businesses”—companies with an average of a dozen employees and a market capitalization of less than $500 million.
But when ExxonMobil announced its successful acquisition of XTO Energy in November 2010, the face of the gas industry changed enormously.
With each passing day, the list of the top gas producers is starting to look a whole lot like the list of Big Oil companies.
Today, the natural gas industry is dominated by companies whose names are well known – ExxonMobil, BP, Shell, ConocoPhillips and Chevron are all in the top 10.
ExxonMobil is now the largest natural gas producing company in the U.S., producing about 16% of the nation’s total consumption.
In spite of the accumulating evidence, cornucopians believe that there will always be enough or there will be substitutes. We will find out soon enough who is wrong.
And the Luddites think it’s all over but the shouting and moving into caves.
I know all the people you listen to daily think it is 'cute' to use the noun (democrat) when the adjective is required before party, i.e. democratic party is made up of democrats.
i.e. Republicanic Party is made up of Republicans?
The use of a noun as a modifier of another noun is not grammatically incorrect in modern English in the formation of a compound noun, e.g., "shoe store," "school bus," "peace movement," etc. The use of nouns as adjectives is part of a broader linguistic trend, according to language expert Ruth Walker, who claims, "We're losing our inflections—the special endings we use to distinguish between adjectives and nouns, for instance. There's a tendency to modify a noun with another noun rather than an adjective. Some may speak of "the Ukraine election" rather than 'the Ukrainian election' or 'the election in Ukraine,' for instance. It's 'the Iraq war' rather than 'the Iraqi war,' to give another example."
The Fleabaggeric Party’s skin is so thin you can actually see they have no guts ... LMFAO!!
There is another equally important pipeline. The Enbridge Line9 from Montreal to Portland Maine is due to be reversed to carry tar sands crude to S. Portland for tanker export.
Exactly ... The Canadian oil sands are going to find an outlet either the XL, the Western coast pipeline or this one on the East coast. The oil is going to be used and there is no doubt about it so wouldn’t it be economically and environmentally better for it to be processed, transported and used in this country rather than shipped to countries with less regulations?
