Democrats Sucidual Energy Policy

I really shouldn't take away from honoring those who gave this nation our freedom -
I must speak out about that which threatens our freedom, the United States has vast petroleum reserves - we could and should supply our own oil, we need to break our dependence on foreign oil. This is a matter of national security.

So, why doesn't it happen? Because the Democratic Party--aided, sadly, by a handful of Republicans--deliberately keeps gas prices high and our domestic oil companies small by putting most of our reserves off limits to development. China is now drilling in the Caribbean, but our own companies are barred by law from developing large oil fields off the coasts of Florida and California. Enormous shale oil deposits in the Rocky Mountain states could go a long way toward supplying American consumers' needs, but the Democratic Congress won't allow those resources to be developed. ANWR contains vast petroleum reserves, but we don't know how vast, because Congress, not wanting the American people to know how badly its policies are hurting our economy, has made it illegal to explore and map those reserves, let alone develop them.

In short, all Americans are paying a terrible price for the Democratic Party's perverse energy policies.

Update on Sen Kennedy

from the AP

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy has a malignant brain tumor, doctors said Tuesday.
Doctors for the Massachusetts Democrat say tests conducted after Kennedy suffered a seizure this weekend show a tumor in his left parietal lobe.
His treatment will be decided after more tests but the usual course includes combinations of radiation and chemotherapy.
The 76-year-old senator has been hospitalized in Boston since Saturday, when he was airlifted from Cape Cod after a seizure at his home.
His wife and children have been with him each day but have made no public statements.
His doctors said in a statement released to The Associated Press that he has had no further seizures, is in good spirits and is resting comfortably.

Over the weekend, Senator Kennedy was taken to the hospital. The Senator had suffered a seizure. Apparently, Senator Kennedy will recover. Good for him.

On Saturday, CNN was all torn up over the fact the family had thought he had suffered a stroke, so they called 911 [which is precisely what they should do]. The EMT's arrived and took him to the Cape Cod Hospital. He was then flown to Mass. General Hospital in Boston.
The family later released a statement that he had had a seizure.
CNN was focused on 'Why did the family think it was a stroke when it was a seizure?' CNN even asked a doctor to explain the family's mistake......WHAT A GHOULISH WAY TO REPORT THIS STORY.

Some folks spent Saturday, hoping this was the end for Senator Kennedy.
I am 100% opposed to his politics but will not wish him ill. I wish he would retire from politics.
Wishing him ill, only makes him and by extension all liberals victims of 'rightwing hate'.
Simply ignore the story, if you wish him ill, wait until we know whether this is a grave illness or not before attacking a man while he is down.

No matter what you think of his politics,
Senator Kennedy is a human being, he is not sub-human, no person is sub-human.
Never treat any person as 'sub-human'. It does not matter what their religion, politics, or job.
