HOW MANY TIMES DO WE LET OUR GOVERNMENT RUIN THE ENERGY INDUSTRY?

Every time I watch our own government let the Arabs destroy our petroleum industry it makes my blood boil. Thirty-eight years ago, I was recruited to leave a twenty-seven-year career in the Aerospace industry because of new and unnecessary bureaucratic government regulations. There was a need to awaken the industry to modern Quality System advantages but to single out only selective devices was the typical way our own government plays games with the lives and future of targeted segments of a huge industry segment. Of the hundreds of high-pressure devices used in the exploration and production of oil and gas, this new regulation only involved two devices. The reason was the word “safety” was in their nomenclature. The regulation was titled ANSI/ASME – SPPE-1/2 and only applied to Surface and Sub-Surface “Safety Valves”. The limitation of this requirement only applied to equipment used in US Offshore Waters. To hell with the land environment where most devices should be used.  

Four of the next five years was the most exciting time in my long career in Quality which should be titled “Customer Satisfaction”. I traveled to exotic places like Saudi Arabia and many surrounding countries and many locations in Europe, Scandinavia and many states. Improvements were made in both Safety and Reliability but only in these selective device families that the government demanded. Without boring you the worst spill in history was caused by the failure of a device called a blow-out preventer and a questionable well completion operation. Amazingly the two safety devices targeted by the government are not installed until the well is completed. 

If true experts were allowed to question the millions of regulations imposed by law on industry after industry it would explain why industries disappear like the coal industry under Obama-Clinton. It would also show the public how the Keystone Pipeline fiasco is destroying an industry segment to protect the rail industry and investors like Warren Buffet who is more powerful. Folks, it is time to make the bureaucrats justify the destruction of targeted industries to satisfy the “Tree-Huggers”, the Wall street Barons and the Congressmen who allow these boondoggles and fatten their pockets. Until Trump appeared on the scene, I and I am sure thousands of other Americans had no voice.

I am long retired and live in the forest of East Texas where I watch young Americans grow up and have no jobs. Sadly, they must go elsewhere to make a living before they can retire where they were raised in Gods Country. Most must work in the petroleum industry, many offshore and on the Intercostal Waterway to make a living for their wives and children who can live here. When I read articles like the one below it makes me mad as hell to watch these fine young people manipulated by politicians and they have no voice. Well, maybe they will have if the women and our “Welfare Army” can’t get Hillary the Witch elected for another 4-8 years of mismanaged bureaucracy.  Only “We the People” can stop this destruction of the freest country ever created by people with a vision that has lasted 200 plus years. Please give Trump a chance. Read this carefully before you vote for another Demoncrat.

This a quote from an oil executive in south Texas who was instrumental in developing Eagle Ford Shale Oil Field (a major, new oil field in South Texas). He cites just one critical economic factor that could be extremely detrimental to America’s road to recovery from eight years in the financial doldrums.

“I think I just heard the biggest LIE I have ever heard in a debate. And if Mrs. Clinton really believes what she said then that just shows beyond a shadow of a doubt how ignorant and out of touch with reality and the energy business, she is. She said, and I quote, ” for the first time EVER as a country, we are now ENERGY INDEPENDENT”.

The absolute facts are this:

  1. We use in excess of 18,000,000 barrels of oil every day in this country. Of that total, we IMPORT 10,000,000 barrels every day from foreign countries. A large percentage of that total comes from the Middle East and Mexico.
  2. Over 1,000,000 jobs have been lost, in the past 2 years, in the energy industry because we are so DEPENDENT on foreign oil; they can do whatever they want, price and the supply-side. And, because they know they have us by the throat they can flood the market with low-priced oil for the sole purpose of putting domestic oil and companies out of business. Over 1,000,000 energy jobs were lost and the “ripple effect” from that is millions of other the jobs that directly benefit from a robust domestic energy industry.
  3. The so-called Iran “Peace deal” allowed 1,500,000 barrels of “additional oil” to be sold on the world market. Thus, adding to the foreign oil total and further endangering the viability of domestic oil production companies.
  4. The EPA is strangling the life out of the domestic energy industry. They do this with restrictive regulations and by closing down huge areas of government-owned land, to private energy company oil exploration. The revenue derived by developing those lands would earn billions of dollars annually and truly makes us INDEPENDENT from foreign oil.
  5. Wind and solar are a joke. The projects are only viable, economically, because the government subsidizes every solar panel and every windmill built. If you took all the energy created from wind and solar it would only amount to seven-tenths of one percent (0.7%) of all the energy put into the grid currently. That’s right… less than 1% of our daily energy demand and it costs billions of dollars in government funding!!!

Liberal Progressive policies put more credence on the theory of “man-made global climate change” than on trying to solve our energy DEPENDENCE on countries that HATE us and then use the same dollars we pay them to buy guns, bullets, missiles and bombs to kill us with. They know that our entire country would come to a screaming halt if they quit selling us oil and we lost those 10,000,000 barrels a day that currently power our country.

The media will avoid this issue like the plague because it was such a moronic and out of touch statement, that makes HRC look like she has no idea what’s going on and has no concept of reality. I was absolutely shocked she made such a statement.

We have enough undeveloped, yet known reserves of oil, natural gas and coal, to power this country for the next 500 years, if we only had anyone in Washington that actually knew what the hell was going on in the energy industry, plus the will and power to do something about it!!

Hillary Clinton is a perfect example of the ineptness of our current leadership. So far she has promised a litany of “Free Stuff” to almost every constituency except for the working people who pay the vast majority of US income taxes. Free college education at state universities. expanding subsidized housing and food entitlements, extending welfare entitlements indefinitely and borrowing ourselves into oblivion. She proposes mortgaging our future generations into a financial fiasco that will mirror the failing socialist regimes of Europe, Asia and South America; just to get votes!!

As with this and other revelations of ineptitude, bribery and corruption, at the highest levels in the State Department, Justice Department, IRS and FBI, it is too late for all those voters who have cast their votes “Early”.

I hope we all survive the next four-year ride on the USS Banana Republic.

FREEDOM – WHAT IS IT WORTH TO YOU?

SPECIAL NEWS BULLETIN!

Boston – National Guard units seeking to confiscate a cache of recently banned assault weapons were ambushed today by elements of a para-military extremist faction. Military and law enforcement sources estimate that 72 were killed and more than 200 injured before government forces were compelled to withdraw.

Speaking after the clash, Massachusetts Governor Thomas Gage declared that the extremist faction, which was made up of local citizens, has links to the radical right-wing tax protest movement.

Gage blamed the extremists for recent incidents of vandalism directed against internal revenue offices. The governor, who described the group’s organizers as “criminals,” issued an executive order authorizing the summary arrest of any individual who has interfered with the government’s efforts to secure law and order.

The military raid on the extremist arsenal followed wide-spread refusal by the local citizenry to turn over recently outlawed assault weapons. Gage issued a ban on military-style assault weapons and ammunition earlier in the week. This decision followed a meeting in early this month between government and military leaders at which the governor authorized the forcible confiscation of illegal arms.

One government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, pointed out that “none of these people would have been killed had the extremists obeyed the law and turned over their weapons voluntarily.”

Government troops initially succeeded in confiscating a large supply of outlawed weapons and ammunition. However, troops attempting to seize arms and ammunition in Lexington met with resistance from heavily-armed extremists who had been tipped off regarding the government’s plans.

During a tense standoff in the Lexington town park, National Guard Colonel Francis Smith, commander of the government operation, ordered the armed group to surrender and return to their homes. The impasse was broken by a single shot, which was reportedly fired by one of the right-wing extremists.

Eight civilians were killed in the ensuing exchange.

Ironically, the local citizenry blamed government forces rather than the extremists for the civilian deaths. Before order could be restored, armed citizens from surrounding areas had descended upon the guard units. Colonel Smith, finding his forces over matched by the armed mob, ordered a retreat.

Governor Gage has called upon citizens to support the state/national joint task force in its effort to restore law and order. The governor also demanded the surrender of those responsible for planning and leading the attack against the government troops.

Samuel Adams, Paul Revere, and John Hancock, who have been identified as “ringleaders” of the extremist faction, remain at large.

And this, fellow Americans, is how the American Revolution began, in April, 1775.

On July 4th, 1776 these same extremists signed the Declaration of Independence, pledging to each other and their countrymen their lives, fortunes, and sacred honor. Many of them lost everything, including their families and their lives over the course of the next few years. ANON

I hope this re-creation of factual American historical events will awaken enough Americans to stop the destruction of our Constitution, Bill of Rights by radical Progressive-Liberal Democrats. President Obama, Eric Holder, Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi and every Democratic politician are hell bent on following the same path described in the historical events that allowed us to have more freedoms than any civilization in history.

Why do you think 90% of people from all over the world would do anything to live in America? One word remains paramount, “Freedom”. Sane people desire to be able to choose life’s path without government oppression, regulations, waste and excessive taxation. Watching this country destroy itself from within is the saddest thing I have endured in my over 83 years of life.

Obama is doing exactly what he promised, to “Change” our way of life. Unfortunately I want my freedoms to last and seeing Americans driven to hate each other is sickening.

If the Progressive-Liberal Demoncrats maintain control of either the Senate or House in November, Obama will be remembered for leading America to destroy itself as Marx and Lenin predicted a long time ago. Why does he care as he will live out his life in Hawaii. Hawaii will be the first state to be managed by the American Communists Party. Remember this when it happens.

AFFORDABLE BOAT ACT!

Hot off the presses……….Ron Jenkins just forwarded this new Executive Order from the White House. I made some minor adjustments to the press release for obvious reasons. You can decide if this is the usual “common sense” actions enacted by the Obamanuts? C Brewer

The new Law and 500 new Government Regulations will be called: “The Affordable Boat Act” declaring that every American citizen MUST purchase a new boat, by April 2014.

These “affordable” boats will cost an average of $54,000-$155,000 each. This does not include taxes, trailers, towing fees, licensing and registration fees, fuel, docking and storage fees, maintenance or repair costs.

This law has been passed, because until now, typically only wealthy and financially responsible people have been able to purchase boats. This new laws ensures that every American can now have an “affordable” boat of their own, because everyone is “entitled” to a new boat. If you purchase your   boat before the end of the year, you will receive 4 “free” life jackets; not including monthly usage fees.

In order to make sure everyone purchases an affordable boat, the costs of owning a boat will increase on average of 250-400% per year. This way, wealthy people will pay more for something that other people don’t want or can’t afford to maintain. But to be fair, people who can’t afford to maintain their boat will be regularly fined and children (under the age of 26) can use their parent’s boats to party on until they turn 27; then must purchase their own boat.

If you already have a boat, you can keep yours (just kidding; no you can’t). If you don’t want or don’t need a boat, you are required to buy one anyhow. If you refuse to buy one or can’t afford one, you will be regularly fined $800 until you purchase one or face imprisonment.

Failure to use the boat will also result in fines. People living in the desert; ghettos; inner cities or areas with no access to lakes are not exempt. Age, motion sickness, experience, knowledge nor lack of desire are acceptable excuses for not using your boat.

A Government Review Board (that doesn’t know the difference between the port starboard or stern of a boat) will decide everything, including; when, where, how often and for what purposes you can use your boat along with how many people can ride your boat and determine if one is too old or healthy enough to be able to use their boat. They will also decide if your boat has out lived its usefulness or if you must purchase specific accessories, (like a $500 compass) or a newer and more expensive boat.

Those that can afford yachts will be required to do so…it’s only fair.  

The government will also decide the name for each boat. Failure to comply with these rules will result in fines and possible imprisonment.

Congress and their staff, all Executive Branch Government Employees and all Federal and Supreme Court Judges are exempt from this new law. If they want a boat, they and their families can obtain boats free, at the expense of tax payers.  Unions, bankers and mega companies with large political affiliations ($$$) are also exempt.

If the government can force you to buy health care, they can force you to buy a boat….or ANYTHING else.

Yes…the “Affordable Care Act” is also just this stupid.
