It's Time for Liberals to Sit Down and Let the Grown-Ups Talk

Katrina and its aftermath have proved what Conservatives have been saying all along about energy, the Second Amendment, and government inefficiency.

  • We can’t afford to be one or two disasters away from economic collapse due to oil demand surpassing supply.
  • Our energy supply is a national security matter.
  • ANWR was needed years ago - begin drilling now.
  • Obstructionist Democrats opposing ANWR drilling are not just stonewalling the President, they are jeopardizing national security.
  • Global warming did not cause Katrina nor the thousands of hurricanes preceding her.
  • Hybrid technology is a solution to our dependence on oil – for our children, perhaps.
  • Hybrid technology solves our energy problems now in undergraduate position papers only.
  • Gun control laws don't make you safer.
  • Gun control laws give armed thugs the upper hand when they walk through your front door.
  • When 911 can't help you, you'd better have a gun.
  • Your family can’t be made safe solely by a local, state, or federal agency.
  • Not all tragedy can be legislated out of existence. It's demagoguery to suggest otherwise.
  • From Karl Marx to Nancy Pelosi, Liberals make great critics.
  • Critics make lousy leaders.
  • After witnessing state, local, and federal boondoggle, Liberals now understand why Conservatives don’t look to government for efficient solutions.

I think you're right, the Bush Administration did a great job.

I wonder if the head of FEMA will get the Medal of Freedom from President Bush?

Blame is not the hallmark of leadership. It is the adolescent response to tragedy.

"Our energy supply is a [national] security matter"

Indeed. In fact, that was perhaps the most powerful argument _against_ the Iraq war in my mind (not completely suasive, but has co ntinually given me pause): the money epnt on that adventure could have ensured complete energy independence for the U.S. Probably with plenty left over for

1.) Securing our borders and
2.) Funding/supplying the Kurds with enough wherewithal to overthrow Saddam themselves (or failing that, persuade the Turks to do the job as clients. ).

Still, the U.S. does have the wherewithall to achieve complete energy independence. We have both the technical expertise and the economic ability to do the job NOW. Later? We have the technical expertise, manpower and fincial ability to produce our own energy cheaply enough, in fact, to compete in manufacturing--except for those three lil bugabears of greed, stupidity and short-sightedness most easily seen in liberalist political hacks, Mass Media Podpeople, Loony Left Moonbats and eco-freaks who would prefer having everyone (who is left after the non-elite starve) depend on shanks mare for transportation than see safe and clean electricity produced by pebble bed reactors to allow cheap hydrogen power or electrical power in automobiles, etc.

Of course, there's also the greed evident in oil companies who would rather not have every lil municipality in the U.S. feeding its raw sewage through TDP plants to produce high quality sweet crude (with by-products of clean water and other sterilized useful products such as calcium-rich fertilizer and accumulated trace minerals). Nah. Having an oil _manufacturing" plant in every lil municipality in the U.S. would put a crimp oil companies' economic power...

It's all about greed, stupidity and short-sightedness.
