He believes bureaucratic pressure and economic hardship will 'force' the invention of this new source. Typical strong-arm mentality.
Oil is the mother's milk of world economic growth.
Galt has actually invented a new fuel that could revolutionize the world, but has been paid trillions by the oil companies to keep it a secret.

Not at all.
You totally misread MdBuilders post.
It is about how much billionaires contribution to the economy. One billionaires contribution to the economy would be equal to what 10,000 (or whatever number he used) typical Obama voters.
1)99% of Americans didn't vote for Obama. The majority of Americans didn't even vote.
2) the typical American whether an Obama voter or not adds little overall as a single individual to the economy
Your first sentence of trying to win an argument by claiming racism wrecked your already weak argument.
Like I said, taken in context with the post he was replying to.

You left that part out.

You make failure look easy.

I agree, it is funny. People who are told what not to think telling other people who hear both sides they're the ones stuck in first gear.

Lol, indeed.

Yeah, people keeping more of their own money, government cutting out waste and duplication and drilling for our own resources providing jobs and energy independence is really a losing formula.
Only to adults who still need a nanny.
Unfortunately, some Big Oil companies do NEED A Government NANNY. Look at Exxon-Mobil's disastrous oil tarsands spills in Arkansas and Wyoming and who can forget the incompetent bungling penny-pincher BP's total Fu*k-up in the Gulf of Mexico , Deepwater-Horizon explosion,fire,and spill or going on now TransCanada's crisis management repairs of its leaky , defective southern tarsands pipeline extension not even finished yet. "Former TransCanada Corp. employee Evan Vokes' impassioned testimony before a Canadian Senate committee last week painted "a very, very bleak picture of the pipeline industry in Canada, and probably by extension, the States," according to Sen. Betty Unger.

Vokes' allegations on Thursday against TransCanada, the Canadian company leading the controversial proposal to send tar sands oil from Alberta to the Gulf Coast via the Keystone XL pipeline, were sobering: a "culture of noncompliance" and "coercion," with "deeply entrenched business practices that ignored legally required regulations and codes" and carries "significant public safety risks."

"It's organized crime, in my opinion," Vokes, an expert in pipeline welding..."

Galt watches MSNBC and CNN more than Fox.
Gotta know what the enemy is planning.
Besides, MSNBC is so extreme it's funny.
And that Chris Hayes is a sweet girl.
When it comes to partisanship MSNBC is as bad as Fox. The difference is the left, obviously represented by MSNBC, believes in what they're saying so they don't have to manufacture lies to reconcile an obvious disconnect between saying and doing.

meaning that when the GOP is willing to talk seriously, and not just to gain points with their base, nothing will get done.
Let's look at Rep Issa. We've learned from direct testimony why what happened in Cincinnati happened. There was no political motive, only IRS workers trying to make due with the complex tax codes we've engineered.
Same with Benghazi, the IG report identified problems and where they originated from. The State department is taking action on the IG report recommendations.
and how did Issa behave. He leaked select testimony that painted a picture of his wet dream, not reality. Completely dishonest and a huge WASTE OF TAXPAYER DOLLARS
Oh Karma,

Cummings released a Progressive squirrel.

No one but him and a few who like to chase squirrels believes this is the final say on the investigation.

Your radical slurs makes your argument whether legit or not look pity and partisan.

The prominent Senate voices in the Republican Party are now Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.
McCain and Graham are history, convenient foils for the Democrats and their lapdog media.
And to think, just 4 1/2 years ago, you were damn near campaigning for McCain, calling him the maverick. Now he's really been an undercover surrogate of Obama's all along? Your confusion leads to delusion, which ends in your party losing!

What should we "save" it for?
Look around you, is their anything near you that isn't at least partially composed of petroleum product or that petroleum products (other than as an energy source) were used their manufacture?
In the near future when petroleum based energy has been replaced by better technology there's still gonna be a big demand for oil.
A point that entirely escapes the left.

Another reason for greater use of nuclear energy, but the obvious answer has no chance in a leftist political environment.

Notice that the cleanest, best, and virtually unlimited energy source is never even mentioned.

just because the beltway media need controversial issues to pull viewers doesn't make it the most important issue to Americans. why do you think that the preponderance of the guests on those shows are wingnut Republicans?
it's amazing how little you wingnuts actually know about how things really work.
Again watch the brainless name calling.

Are you suggesting the Dems do not want the now Anonymous-turned Snowden captured?

Obama wants him extradited-remember.

However, as the most important issue to Americans -nope.

<quoted text>Americans are tossed on this issue. 90% of Americans also approve of NSA data collection if it leads to the capture of terrorists or foiling of terrorist plots. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating!" American pragmatism is deep in our DNA. Americans also find no cause for worry about large private Telecom companies data mining personal information and selling it to the highest bidder in the market place. You can no longer buy or sell the 'person', but only the person's 'information profile'.
NO

Americans support NSA data collection on foreign terrorists, but not on Americans.
