Yup, the "drill baby drill" crowd got their way. Now are we any better for it? Do you see your gas at the pump going down? Fuel for the winter?
Of coarse not.....
Will we be in any less global conflicts or wars......ha ha ha ha.
As we pollute our lands, waters, the oil is being shipped off to other places around the globe. The Wall Street Speculators keep the price high while they continue on betting and gambling and nothing is being done about anything in DC that helps the average person and only token bones thrown to the environmentalist.
The Heartless Greedy Ones got their way again, spreading the lies on how good it would be for "us" while it is only good for a few of them. The Oil Barons still getting their huge ongoing Corporate Welfare tax breaks while the solar industry gets little to nothing.
Meanwhile we crawl and gasp along with truly good clean technologies for our energy sources waiting in the wings while we continue with train derailments, oil rig explosions, pipelines bursting, earthquakes caused by the fracking, and our waters being polluted or used for these misadventures.

Noted. Excellent points made by Dandelion; particularly regarding the Speculators who are keeping prices up. It's over $100 a barrel now, which is excessive. The game is rigged and the fix is in.

Does everyone remember the propaganda that the conservatives told us, over and over again?
In the event someone forgot, I'd 'love' to refresh your memory.
They repeated many times, that as soon as we start pumping oil, we would become oil independent and our gas prices would go down.
We have allowed the oil companies to become so powerful, that THEY make all the decisions, as to where the oil goes. It doesn't stay in the U.S.A. It goes to the highest bidder, whatever country that may be.
Here is another example of the deceptiveness of the GOP.
