Observation:

Both Stephen Colbert and Keith Olbermann recently got new glasses that look quite similar to Sarah Palin's.

Conspiracy theory, anyone?

So please indicate why the oil is infinite, and infinitely non-costly to use/produce.
While you are at it you can explain how you think global warming is either non-existant or not caused by humans.
The oil sands of Canada that were going gangbusters cost estimated $100-110 per barrel to produce that oil. Why was that going on if it is so cheaply accessible everywhere else? High school grads were making $50 an hour. The bottom is falling out of that.
Perhaps look at global supply and demand- very thin spread lately. World recession should help a bit. China is really investing in alternative energy, too.
Look at oil wells running dry- not enough new wells to keep up current production- even though the tax subsidies from the American gov't and record high oil profits- the biggies have not invested much in new wells.
Ok, Eurobrain- explain to us American idiots.

Dick Cheney marble bust unveiled in U.S. Capitol

Image

Friday, 4 December 2015

One of the most controversial vice presidents in U.S. history will have a permanent presence in the halls of power in Washington after a marble bust of Dick Cheney was unveiled Thursday at the U.S. Capitol.

Cheney, 74, was vice president at the time of the September 11, 2001 attacks and was seen as one of the most influential hawks in the George W. Bush administration.

In sign that the scars of the war in Iraq and the Bush era have failed to fully heal, current Vice President Joe Biden was the only Democrat on stage for the ceremony.

Cheney came in for some good-natured jostling from his former boss.

“Last time I showed up, I was hanged at the White House,” said Bush, referring to his official portrait being placed in the White House in May 2012.

“This time, I’ve returned only to find my vice president getting busted at the Capitol.

“Last week I told mother and dad that I was coming here to the bust unveiling. Dad perked up, and he said, ‘Send my best regards to old iron a**!’”

President Bush’s father, George H.W. Bush (president 1989-1993), described Cheney - his defense secretary during the 1991 Gulf war - as a stubborn “iron a**” in a recent biography.

But Bush was also generous in his praise, saying: “For eight years Dick stood by my side and always did what was right for our nation. I could not have asked for a better vice president than Dick Cheney.”

Cheney, whose bust lines up along with a host of other vice presidents from down the years, called it a proud day.

“Every now and then, even in the distant future, someone will surely wander by the old Cheney bust, maybe even stop for a moment or two, trying to recollect something of the man, and the era,” he said.

That really is a shame. They might as well put one up of Benedict Arnold right next to his.
