[QUOTE]In Response to Re: GOP clarifies its view on rape/abortion : That seems to be the typical attitude of wingnuts. "Stay in the 20th century where it's safe." Geepers, we'd all still be speaking the Queens English if you idiots were around in the 1700's. The success of the oil industry was a direct result of gov't intervention in both the process of oil extraction and refinement and the resources and land to drill on. The ENTIRE nuclear industry is a result of gov't research and financing of nuclear plants. The military today is testing the use of 'green' fuel for it's airplanes. How about a military aircraft travelling at 3 times the speed of sound on fuel derived from algae....and that is happening TODAY!!! Geepers, talk about a Luddite.

I love you liberals with your own version of history.
The first oil well drilled in the USA was drillled by a private citizen Edwin Drake in Pennsylvania in 1859 for the privately owned Seneca Oil Company.
Wells were drilled much prior to that in Europe and China.
Nuclear power/energy was developed by the US military
Not by the government.
The military is using biofuels as a direct order from Obama.
The "green fleet" that recently set sale with bio-fuels cost the US taxpayer 26 dollars a gallon.http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/48047296/ns/us_news-environment/t/gallon-navys-green-fleet-meets-stiff-headwinds/
The current cost of domestic liquified natural gas is at 3.77 per gallon
If you filled your car up this morning you probably know what a gallon of gasoline costs.
Like I've said numerous times, I'm all for green energy but the current cost cannot compete with fossil fuels, it isn't there yet.
And I would prefer to let the private sector develope it, not Obama with my tax dollars.
We have an abundance of natural gas in this country unequaled anywhere else on the planet, all we have to do is go and get it.
I'm guessing that will not be pursued until after Nov. 2012..
