1. Exactly ... our 'friends' the multi-national Oil Companies are selling it

off to the world as fast as they can pull it out of the ground.

This is THE FUCKING OPPOSITE of trying to establish 'energy independence'. This fracking bounty is a one-time thing, and highly unlikely to continue at this pace for very long. We're allowing our birthright to be pissed away for short-term profit.

How fucking stupid do you think we are KEVIN?!?

2. I think most people are this stupid

I've heard this from people whom I thought were smart. That it's our country's oil.

4. Kevin McCarthy is probably the stupidest member of Congress.

Huge competition there, too, what with Louie Gohmert and Steve King being there, too.

6. And they're exporting crude, rather than processing it.

This is what third world countries do -- sell their natural resources as dirt-cheap commodities to foreigners with more infrastructure, who process it and reap huge profits on the final products.

7. +1 ... one of my real-life 'Thanks Obama!' moments ... not his idea, but he signed off ...

That pissed me off, I gotta say ...

5. The meek will inherit a toxic planet

After the aggressors get through with it.

Never did get that Bible quote.
