T.Boone Pickens and Congress

Why are we still being held hostage by Arab Oil. We should have years ago taken back our energy policy. For years we were sufficiently supplied by oil and gas produced by Texas and Oklahoma. With other states being a minor roll in the process. Then came the different Conservationist that put so many regulations on drillers and refineries that we stopped drilling and stopped producing. We then fell imprisoned and dependent to imported oil. Look what happened to us now that the future has come, no future of getting out of this mess. Well I hope Congress is proud to have gone on vacation with the rest of us choose weather to stop grocery shopping or get gas to go to work.
Nancy Pelosy ,The Speaker Of The House, would not allow any discussion on the House Of Representatives on our energy woes. This just shows how the Democrats would rather cater to the special interest groups that would see us return to the horse and buggy days. Oh sure they want alternate ways of making energy. That wonderful but they have had 40 years to do this. As of now there's some but not enough to say that we could comp,letely go from oil. So the situation demands we start drilling again as well as building new refineries. Allow Oil Company's to drill without the threat of lawsuits. The oil companies know how to drill without hurting the environment and disturbing the balance ecologically.
T.Boone has a plan that could help us do the unthinkable,tell the Arabs to kiss off. He would do this by allowing every know technology we have today to be used. And that includes oil,gas,electric,hydrogen and any other man made ideas. However, all this will take time . The longer we wait the longer it is going to take. If it takes 5 or 6 years then it would be better to start now then start in another 5 or 10 years. Where is Congress ,Oh yes their on vacation politicing for Sen . Obama and his running mate Sen. Biden. They would rather politic than help us little people out. At least the President had the will to help by lifting the ban on offshore drilling. This should have happened years ago as should we had voted the drilling of Anwar.
Congress if you don't do your job it's time to completely get rid of them all. I'm not just talking about Democrats either. The Republicans could have started the ball rolling also and they didn't have courage to fight against the special interest. The problem I've had with them has always been that when they did get the power of both house of Congress they started making Gov. and special interest as did the Democrats before them. Wheres the Republic for the people any more? Where's the representation for the people of each state, each county , each city. I'll tell you where it is ,in the toilet. All they care is to make more money for their friends and by doing so they become more powerful in their own demented minds.
