Obama and his liberal jerks would sooner see people freeze or have to pay double the current gas price or more than exploit our own natural energy resources.
Carbon fuel is evil in their sight and they mean to kill it's production any chance they get.
Unfortunately the propaganda of the Democrats worked big time this year and that gives them a chance to trash any kind of drilling or operation to obtain energy.
Better to stick it to the greater public.
After all these schmucks have the money to go where they want and to heat their homes.
They could give a rip and a half if my family sleeps cold or I have to spend 8 or 9 dollars for a gallon of gas.
This would not bother liberals in the least.
As long as these operations are on PRIVATE LAND there isn’t much the government can do.................
