My son is a Mechanical Engineering graduate student at a major US university. He says that a lot of manufacturing is moving back to the US, because our energy costs are lower than in China.
But, they will take all the credit for it and the dummys will go for it all hook line and sinker. They will not notice that most of it is being done on private land where Obama has no say-so.
Barring DRASTIC changes, the epidemic will only spread.
Sounds great. Manufacturing returning and all.
But the big sharp fangs of Obamacare don’t start biting until 2014. That’s when Obama voters and wealth producers are going to start saying “Hey, wait a minute....”
With fracturing and side-ways drilling that is giving us decades worth of natural gas has reduced the price of natural gas, there will come a time that natural gas producers can't keep up with the demand in the future. I see natural gas as the future and it will be a great investment. I'm thinking about 5 years out to buy Chesapeake.
It will take many years to convert the oil/gasoline refineries and build the lines, but it will happen. Think coal plants shutting down and nuke plants not being built. The era of coal is going away, not because of Obama, but because it is in-efficient.
Forget the environmental-nazis - natural gas is our future. Those a**wholes will try everything they can to stop fossil fuel and worship wind/solar, but natural gas is so clean burning, their arguements will fail.
Once natural gas becomes more prevalent in various transportation and home/company/transportation use, their position will become moot.
Still, I reserve the right to put gasoline in my 2000 vette (C-5). Have you seen the new C-7 (2014 model)Corvette? It is the ugliest Corvette ever built. It looks like a cross of a Nissan and Camaro. Thanks for that Fedgov General Motors. The designers screwed up. I'm going to send a message to the CEO of Chevrolet and tell them that is the ugliest Corvette ever. BTW, I still own a 2000 (C-5) corvette. Our government is just dumb as stupid and so is GM.
