The lack of critical thinking ability and lockstep beliefs of the left are seldom more apparent than the adulation of the court jester Stewart. They have no ability to discern the difference between cleverness and wisdom.

The Oil Weapon in America's Hands

Although I agree with most of the article, one must be aware that the unconventional oil increase is about over. We have reached the point that the new wells will only be able to maintain the current rate at best and that there will be no large increases in domestic production. Also be aware that $70/bbl is required to even continue drilling the "shale plays" and below that level, when the music stops the production will drop rapidly.
There are so many errors concerning Russia and gas production in this article it would take too long to correct and explain. Limiting to gas only please be aware: 1) Shale gas for most areas requires around $8/mmbtu to be profitable in the US; with no infrastructure and facilities in Europe to drill and develop the price would be astronomical. 2) There has been limited drilling for shale gas in the US the last 5 years because of price, where the excess supply may be marginal. 3) We may have have inadequate supply of gas in the US this winter, since these wells decline at around 90% the first year. 4) We are 10 years away from having an infrastructure that could supply any significant gas to replace Russian supply even if we have the volume. 5) Even if we could export the price to produce, liquify and ship US gas to Europe would exceed the price charged by Russia. 6) The curtailment of gas may be due to Russian supply problems rather than political reasons.

It is interesting reading the amount of vitriol against libertarians by the brainwashed who are ignorant of the subject matter and have been convinced that they cannot survive without government. The mindless prattle argument against individual liberty like all government defenders only uses half arguments. I know this is hard but if you are free to do something stupid it is no longer society's problem to fix it. Personal freedom comes with a caveat called personal responsibility. The brainwashed have a hard time with the concept, which is anything but adolescent. The stupidity of societal responsibility for individual responsibility that the brainwashed have accepted is the reason that we have so many victimless crimes on the books, with a government depriving individuals of their rights and property under threat of violence.
Where was this outrage when Mitt Romney was castigated for giving another kid a haircut in high school? The point is the lies she perpetrated against the victim, like when she was fired from the Watergate legal team for lying or more recently the lie about dodging snipers in Kosovo. There is nothing this sociopath will not do to obtain power. Look into her lies used against the multiple women Slick Willie abused.

Slavery Reparations

One thing that should be mentioned when comparing economic data pre Civil War between the Northern industrial sector versus the Southern agrarian sector was the fact that slavery in the north was uneconomical because there were thousands of Irishmen getting off the boat every day, who could be paid a pittance for their labor with no concern for their housing, food or healthcare.
For all you negative posters, we should pass a law that makes rape illegal, uh wait a minute, you mean there's already law?
The reality is that without the constant drum beating, very few people would even notice homosexuals except for their exhibitonism in a pitiful effort to achieve recognition of their crotch as if that has some relevance. The constant pushing of the homosexual agenda is nothing more than another Marxist effort to separate people based upon their differences like women versus men, racial identity, age, religious beliefs, etc and obscure the real agenda of government takeover. The only amazing thing is the amount of attention paid to a population that is relatively miniscule to a point that if they all disappeared would hardly be noticed.
John, please don't accuse celebrities of any thoughts that led them to be liberals. They aren't anything, other than emoters of other peoples words. Most have no critical thinking ability whatsoever and if they ever had an independent thought that did not fit the script it was were immediately quashed by agents, directors or writers.
concerning #4- A classic example of government statistical lies is the way they calculate & report GNP/GDP. It is calculated as all goods and services produced plus government expenditures. To explain, lets say you produced 1000 widgets and the government taxed away(stole) 400. Since anything the government spends is wasted the 400 stolen widgets are gone. yet when they report the GNP they report it as 1400 widgets, the 1000 you made plus the 400 they stole. Now you say, they borrow (print) money and waste it so there may actually be 1400, but anytime they print money it devalues all widgets, so again no increase in GNP.
