  • The gold bear keeps growling [View news story]
    This must be the new math. I thought if interest rates go up, inflation goes up, and gold goes up. Someone must have changed the rules.

  • Crude Oil: What's With Those Canadian Imports, Eh? [View article]
    That's assuming that the world economy doesn't crash when the rest of the PIGS line up for more credit behind Greece!

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Nokia Seals $16.6B Alcatel-Lucent Deal [View article]
    I still fail to understand how a 5% increase in oil production nets a 50% decrease in the price. Our former guv claims we will NEVER see $100/bbl oil again. I'd be willing to bet a paycheck we don't make it past the next general election!

  • Oil companies fight plan to slow North Dakota energy production [View news story]
    The NWO is ready to gin up another trillion $ war (in Ukraine) over natural gas, and we're throwing away at least $400 million/mo in NG. Absolute stupidity!

  • Paul Ryan: Ideas for reducing poverty [View news story]
    DC:

    You mean we haven't won "a war" in 50 yrs.
    1st Iraq war left Saddam in power, and results in the 2nd Iraq war.
    Status of 2nd war is still questionable.

    We could make the same claims for the largest piece of the pie, national defense.
    Our lefty socialist programs are still far more efficient than our right wing one, compared to the rest of the world. $10 M +/kill in the current "war". It would be far cheaper to just put a $10 M bounty on terrorists. Heck, there would be a few good ole boys would do it for a carton of smokes and a case of Pearl!

  • Al Gore Should Support Natural Gas Transportation [View article]
    BBB: At least you seem to be a reasonably informed, non grenade throwing type, so I'll respond.

    I dislike the Saudis, but Canada is no "friend". Friendship is mutually beneficial, and in the case of Keystone XL, there is no benefit to USA. In fact, here in flyover country, our gas prices will go up.
    First, this isn't an oil pipeline, it's a tar pipeline with lots of solvents to make the tar flow. Big difference. Operates at higher pressures.
    It's been 3+ yrs since the spill in MI, and they still have not cleaned up the mess.
    Next, the regulations were relaxed on this pipeline, and they are using import (no doubt Chinese) pipe.
    Third, this pipeline crosses one of the most productive patches of God's green earth. Why should we risk contaminating the world's
    breadbasket for 30 pieces of silver?
    Fourth, how can a foreign company confiscate private property of taxpaying US citizens, and claim public good? Where are the conservatives on this?
    Last, if this "oil" is meant for America's energy independence, why are they expanding the port facilities in Port Arthur TX, the terminus of the XL pipeline? This route is preferred, because it's mostly downhill with fewer pumps needed. Which ever route is taken, this "oil" is meant for export.

  • Al Gore Should Support Natural Gas Transportation [View article]
    AlGore isn't the only fear-mongering ex vice prez in the ring.
    In the right corner, we have Dick Cheney. The guy who privatized the military, then went to the company that got those contracts.
    Wants to keep the bottomless coffee cup war in the sandbox going, forever. Keeps demand (and prices) for oil up, and keep billions in dollars rolling in for those defense contracts. Beautiful. No conflict of interest here.

  • Al Gore Should Support Natural Gas Transportation [View article]
    Those "deep troubles" are for big oil, defense contractors, and banksters who are betting that us junkies will stay addicted to oil! Quite frankly, I'm getting tired of kissing Saudi a** for the past 40 yrs.

    Fitz: You're beating a dead horse. People will keep denying global warming, up until it hits them square between their eyes, and in the wallet. Ask the western Kansas farmer or the Gulf Coaster facing drastic increases in flood insurance. Not exactly Blue staters, are they? Money shall make believers of all.

    Why LNG when we flare billions of dollars/yr in the Bakkens?
    All the lobbying for XL, when common sense begs for using
    this flared gas for the Twin Cities and Chicago. So much for free market.
    If they won't do it, that's where gov't infrastructure should step in.

    OK, I'll bite. Show me the money. Not everyone can be a Network Admin geek or rocket scientist. What few mid income jobs that are being created are going to H1B(s). At least that's the case in the electronics industry. If I lost my job today, I'd be working @ Best Buy for 60 % off!

    Could it be because our economy is based mostly on moving things from Point A to Point B? We actually quit being a productive economy in the '70s, and have lived off of OPM ever since. The chickens have come home to roost.

  • Nat Gas Transportation: China Is Trouncing The U.S. At Its Own Game [View article]
    As long as the dollar is backed by oil, there will be no change in energy policy. Too many players, (banksters, big oil, and defense contractors) want things the way they are.

    Although large and fleet vehicles would benefit from lower fuel costs from NG, would small vehicles that already get 35+ MPG get any?
    My mech engineering friends claim that electric or gasoline vehicles would be better options for engines < 2.0 liters displacement.

  • Charlie Munger Thinks Oil Is Absolutely Certain To Become Incredibly Short In Supply [View article]
    I used to think the Saudis and the Russians were idiots for flaring their NG. Stupidity must be contagious. Instead of Keystone XL, why not build a NG pipeline from the Bakkens, and quit sending $100 million/month up in smoke in North Dakota alone?
