Here's a map of Recovery Act Funds Obligated from DOT. Some SERIOUS money.

Boone is telling it like it is. HS readers please take note.

Currently we are "exporting" over one quarter trillion dollars annually to the world crude oil market. That market is controlled by the OPEC cartell---that's "monopoly" to us. So, we can get a better handle on that enormous sum that's,$250,000,000,000.00. Quite a pile of US dollars---money flying out of our economy and where is it going? What use is being made of the dollars we are sending to OPEC? Well, much of it ultimately finances Islamic jihad---a fancy way of saying Islamic TERRORISM. Jihadists primary reason for living is to KILL non-believers. In their book, a "non-believer" is for all intents and purposes someone who doesn't ascribe to their particular form of Islam. "Fanatical murderers" is another apt discription for these murdering, mercilous thug throwbacks from the 12th century.

Interestingly, of all the nations responding to the earthquake disaster in Haiti I have yet to see one cent in aid from any OPEC member. Philantrophy aint their strong suit. Too busy building gilded mansions and spreading terror to help out the Haitians.

All of these comments suggest that I would welcome keeping a significant portion of that quarter trillion dollars in our own economy each year and raising that traditional one-fingered salute to OPEC. American natural gas at long last provides us with the means to do so. And as Boone Pickens says, getting swift passage of the NAT GAS Act. HR 1835 and S 1408 will go a long way toward accomplishing that goal. We have the energy base we need to finally end our devastating reliance on crude oil over which we have virtually no control. Our situation at this time is strangling on OPEC's rope----that we paid for. Move America toward a natural gas future. Its cleaner, cheaper, superior, abundant and American. That's the way we need to go. Write your congressmen and senators and let them hear how you feel about the insane energy policy we presently have.

I'm with you on it's about time. With 15 producing wells in Harrison County, I'm ready for some gas consumption.

A recent letter from the Natural Gas Caucus to Pres. Obama ...

I'm not sure exactly how many members from both sides of the aisle had/have signed on with this caucus, but I think it was a rather impressive number. 80)

Better late than never. Now we'll see if political partisanship can be overcome by those who see advantages in supporting nat gas as a major component of national energy policy. Neither party has a good report card on this subject but both have the opportunity to support a change. We'll see if they are capable of co-operating.
