TX, LA, and OK should help the Democrats reach their goal by shutting off all gas and oil pipelines to the north and east. Their hot air should be able to keep them warm this winter

I think we should too.

Our energy production can got to nuclear and hydro electric hen we can sell the bulk of the oil to the rest of the world for them to use.

Don’t fall for their “alternative” or “clean” energy diversion.

They don’t want you to use ANY energy. They want you shivering in the dark and under their complete control.

I think we’re going to need to keep a running tally of the things eliminated from or by the Dem party platform. So far:

1. God
2. Israel
3. Oil

We could probably add: Babies, Biblical marriage, common sense.

Who said I did? Nuclear and hydro are proven to be effective and cheap energy sources. We'd be fools not selling oil and setting prices.

Apparently the 300% inflation in energy costs they engineered in the last 4 years is not enough. They are shooting for a 3000% increase in the next 4 years.

Apparently hat’s what they mean by “reducing our dependency on oil”.
They also stop domestic production of oil, and increase our foreign oil imports.
And they then attack oil companies for price gouging when prices necessarily rise...

I don’t think so, not with this crowd.

Once a godless person (a leftist) reaches a certain level of wealth, it’s no longer about the money, it’s about controlling other people.

This is about control. They want the masses to be without energy. And they want there to be a bigger difference in lifestyle between them and us.

The U.S. is no longer public enemy number one when it comes to greenhouse gas emissions — that distinction now goes to China.

I'm sure they'll be every bit as effective at fixing that as the are about keeping Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

“Apparently this is not satire...dolts, all of them.”

I actually had to check.

Actually, the democrats HAVE done a GREAT job on reducing our oil use. Firstly, it’s very expensive, so people use less of it; secondly, with fewer industries, less oil and other forms of energy are consumed; and thirdly, with no jobs in those industries to go to, people drive less.

The Northeasters who lost electricity in a flood last year about died because they lost electric services for a few days. They were so outraged with the electric service company for taking so long!

If the Left’s globalist warmers are sucessful, their Northeast city voters won’t be able to cope. They will have to head out to France. :)

At least they recognize that. It wasn't long ago they wanted the US to sign CO2 reduction treaties that excluded China because it was a developing nation.

I have an idea. Since these folks have recognized that China is the world's biggest AGW threat, why don't they go there and publicly demonstrate? The answer, of course, is that when they weren't just laughed at, they'd be treated worse than the Falun Gong.

Ridding the U.S. of oil-based energy and avoiding the catastrophic consequences of climate change are the primary goals of the Democratic Party platform

That's it. They just jumped the shark.

Another possibility might be that they are only adding all of this crazy stuff to their platform because that motivates the grassroots and besides the politicians have no intention of following through.

Kind of like our side.

Not even mules and horses. They fart, defecate, and urine horribly, releasing tons of greenhouse gas emissions for the relatively liitle work they can do.

Watch the convention for a Wellstone moment. That’s all that’s missing. Somebody major has got to step up to the mike in prime time, and complete wig out. They can rant, say a provable falsehood, or make it painfully clear that they’re living in lala land, personally attack Mitt or Ryan, or publicly embrace communism/Islam/post-colonialist gibberish, or any other form of political suicide. Once that happens, it’s over, except for the celebrating. The only thing that can save them then is if Mitt completely blows a debate or says something stupid or racist. I can feel the Wellstone moment coming. My bones are aching and the air is electric with expectation.

“We must end the tyranny of oil in our time,” the platform said.

Just as they are trying to end the tyranny of excellence and success.
