This is my first start of a discussion, so please be gentle.
I received this e-mail and wondered if it was just more propaganda or if there was any truth to any of it. I believe the e-mail was started some time in 2008, because the link to the article provided was 2008. So, it's not new, and it was before the surge of Marcellus & Utica talk.
Are the environmentalists costing Americans MORE money than we even realize? See for yourself. Let me know what you think? I have been accused of being gullible in the past. So, again bear with me, but IF it is true, is there anything we can do about it?
& Again, IF there is truth to this, what does this mean to the Marcellus & Utica Plays? Can we learn from it? Can we benefit from past experiences endured by other regions of our country?
Obama said in his state of the union address a few days ago the United States has 2% of the world oil reserve ?
Do you believe him? To me, it sounds like he is down-playing a little bit. Why would he do that? I guess I just can't wrap my head around why we want to be dependent on foreign oil, when we have our own right here in America. Better yet, convert to natural gas. Seems we have more of that even. Your thoughts?
Not when his mouth is moving.
LOL! That seriously made me laugh out loud. But seriously, why do they want to stall progression? What is their angle? What is it benefitting them? Keep Americans in need of the governement instead of reliant on ourselves? I don't know. Just doesn't make sense to me.
amanda,it makes perfect sense if you look at it in the context of the agenda of the left and the united nations. they have to hold us down. our freedom stands in their way. our constitution says our rights come from our Creator, not the piece of paper. to assimilate america into the world government that is the first thing they have to get rid of. hence obama describes the constitution as a charter of negative liberties. he bemoans the supreme court never used wealth redistribution as a factor in their rulings. 'the constitution reflected the fundamental flaw of this country that continues to this day' barack obama. americans have some hard choices to make about right and wrong and their future.
I guess I'm just not a lefty. I think old-school. That's the way I was raised. I think being a Christian has something to do with it too. I'm not knocking on other religions. America was founded on the same principles that Christianity teaches and it seems those principles are almost all but gone. Seems if we're not careful, they're going to completely control the Utica and Marcellus if they haven't already. I certainly do not want to become part of the mass new world order saga. One word, "Scary."
I hope all Americans make the right choice and get Obama out of there. Gary - everything you said above makes perfect sense - I wish more people could see what Obama is really trying to do to this country.
The Bakken oil play in North Dakota is indeed phenominal! a "mini" Saudi Arabia. Because of the oil in North Dakota, landowners are purchasing summer homes in all places - Phoenix and Las Vegas! the housing market is dead there and housing prices are rock bottom. I've been reading about the "boom" in the Bakken for the past 2 years! Don't know where ya'll get your news from? (probably CBS, CNN, Current TV, ABC, and NBC - all gvernment run media).
I think that was one of the purposes of the e-mail, to get the word out. It certainly isn't public knowledge and you're not hearing about it on the "news" either. So, is the Bakken producing more than Saudi like the e-mail states? Or are they exagerating a bit?
I have heard about the housing boom in North Dakota and the jobs - all from the evening news on NBC! geez - do some research rather than what other people say.
I have been doing A LOT of research. Never really focused on too much more than the Utica & Marcellus. This is why I am branching out now...I was informed from an e-mail that was speculative of what may or may not be happening. I am, as they say broadening my horizons. I started here, and since then been going to many other sites that haven't been so informative.
So many people are so quick to insult - geez.
