"All it takes for our economy to go into turmoil is the Arab countries refuse to take U.S. dollars for payment for oil"

"All it takes for our economy to go into turmoil is the Arab countries refuse to take U.S. dollars for payment for oil"


You know you could be on to something here.

WHOOPS, you were trying to trick me weren't you?

Its common knowledge that the majority of the imported oil in the US is from Canada.

If Obama hadn't blocked the Keystone pipeline, we could import more oil from Canada cheaper. Does Canada take Hawaiian money?

Things Democrats Believe
1.People who use drugs deserve compassion and understanding — unless their drug of choice is tobacco.
2.Children can be exposed to years of violent and sexually-explicit imagery in popular culture with no ill effects, but an adult who is exposed to a racially insensitive remark is emotionally scarred for life.
3.Banning abortions will only drive them underground, but banning guns will make them disappear.
4.Teaching children about safe sex in school will make them sexually responsible, but teaching children about safe gun handling in school would make them violent killers.
5.The Enron accounting scandal is an indictment of free markets as such, but UNSCAM is no big deal.
6.An unemployment rate of 5.6% during the Clinton administration was unusually low, but an unemployment rate of 5.6% during the Bush administration is unusually high.
7.Successful government programs should be praised and publicized — unless the program is welfare reform.
8.A work of art portraying Jesus submersed in urine is daring and avant garde, but a work of art portraying Mohammad submersed in urine would be bigoted and hateful.
9.George Bush invaded Iraq for the oil, but the many profiteers from the oil-for-food program opposed the war out of principle.
10.Janet Jackson’s breast is protected by the First Amendment, but political advocacy ads are not.
11.Scientists and engineers can’t build a safe nuclear reactor, but global warming activists can accurately predict the weather.
12.Edu cation should be value-neutral, except for values like multiculturalism and environmentalism.
13.We need to move beyond 9/11, so we can get back to obsessing over Vietnam.
14.The Second Amendment does not protect the right to keep and bear arms, but the Fourteenth Amendment mandates race preferences.
15.Fetuses do not have rights, but animals do.
16.Parents should have a choice over whether their children are born, but not what school they attend.
17.American corporations outsourcing jobs to poor foreign workers is bad; taxing American corporations and sending money to foreign dictators who promise to give it to poor foreigners, but actually squirrel it away in Swiss bank accounts, is good.

Gas prices might go up, not down: Right now, a lot of oil being produced in Canada and North Dakota has trouble reaching the refineries and terminals on the Gulf. Since that supply can't be sold abroad, it reduces the competition for it to Midwest refineries that can pay lower prices to get it.
Giving the Canadian oil access to the Gulf means the glut in the

Midwest goes away, making it more expensive for the region.
http://money.cnn.com/2012/03/22/news/economy/...

Tell me something OA, if that pipeline was meant to supply the US oil, why is it going to the Gulf of Mexico at a major shipping port, all the while going by refineries in the Mid West and California which is much closer?

Hint- The gulf is closer to South America, where the refined diesel fuel will be sold.

BTW- It was delayed, not blocked.

"Things Republicans Believe
Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.
The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.
Government should relax regulation of Big Business and Big Money but crack down on individuals who use marijuana to relieve the pain of illness.
"Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.
A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.
Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.
The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.
Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you someday run for governor of California as a Republican.
If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.
A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.
HMOs and insurance companies have the interest of the public at heart.
Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.
Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.
Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.
A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.
Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.
The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.
You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have a right to adopt.
What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.
Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony."

lol again way to fail. Why don't you move to china since that is where republicans want to send all of our jobs. China does not like the idea of equal pay and womens rights so republicans would have a ball over there. They do not believe in global warming and have NO presidential election to worry about losing because they believe the same ignorant ideas republicans do. What are you waiting on? Romney may even have some detentiion centers designed to keep people out waiting on you.
