Here’s an astonishing read. Important and verifiable information:

Written by Ed on February 28, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. was the guest. The host said to Forbes, “I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. Have in the ground?” Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, “more than all the Middle East put together.” Please read below.

The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn’t been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota , western South Dakota , and extreme eastern Montana ….. Check THIS out: The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska’s Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration
(EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable… At $107 a barrel, we’re looking at a resource base worth more than $53 trillion.

“When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea…” says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature’s financial analyst. “This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years,” reports The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. It’s a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the ‘Bakken.’ It stretches from Northern Montana , through North Dakota and into Canada . For years, U. S. Oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the ‘Big Oil’ companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken’s massive reserves……
And we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels.

And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!

That’s enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight. And if THAT didn’t throw you on the floor, then this next one should – because it’s from 2006!

U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World Stansberry Report Online – 4/20/2006 Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:
– 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
– 18-times as much oil as Iraq
– 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
– 22-times as much oil as Iran
– 500-times as much oil as Yemen
– And it’s all right here in the Western United States.

HOW can this BE? HOW can we NOT BE extracting this? Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy…..WHY?

James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we’ve got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That’s more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.

Don’t think ‘OPEC’ will drop its price – even with this find? Think again!
It’s all about the competitive marketplace, – it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

Got your attention yet? Now, while you’re thinking about it, do this:
Pass this along. If you don’t take a little time to do this, then you
should stifle yourself the next time you complain about gas prices – by doing NOTHING, you forfeit your right to complain.

Now I just wonder what would happen in this country if every one of you sent this to every one in your address book.

By the way…this is all true. Check it out at the link below!!!

Obama’s mystery links to Gadhafi uncovered

Written by Ed on February 27, 2011 – 11:56 pm -

JERUSALEM – As pressure mounts on the White House to intervene to stop Moammar Gadhafi’s bloody crackdown in Libya, many commentators have been wondering why Barack Obama has been cautious in his criticism of the dictator after the U.S. president so fervently supported the removal from office of U.S. ally Hosni Mubarak of Egypt.

But Gadhafi has been tied to Rev. Jeremiah Wright, Obama’s spiritual adviser for more than 23 years.

The Libyan dictator also has financed and strongly supported the Nation of Islam and its leader, Louis Farrakhan. Obama has ties to Farrakhan and his controversial group.

GOVERNMENT OF, BY AND FOR THE UNIONS

Written by Ed on February 25, 2011 – 5:44 pm -

Written by Jack Kelly
Thursday, 24 February 2011

The violent imagery and uncivil rhetoric journalists have searched for in vain at Tea Party rallies are in evidence in the protests in Madison, Wisconsin against Gov. Scott Walker’s efforts to trim the power of public employee unions.

The New York Times likened the protests in Madison to those against Arab dictatorships.

Wisconsin is a democracy, not a Middle Eastern autocracy. Those who subvert democracy are those who would shut down the government to keep the will of the people, as expressed at the polls in November, from being enacted.

Wisconsin is nearly bankrupt. There is a $137 million shortfall in the fiscal year that ends June 30, and a projected deficit of $3.6 billion for the two years after that.

The deficit cannot be closed without trimming pay and benefits of public employees. In 2008, these accounted for half of all state and local government spending, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. If government workers were paid the same as private sector workers, no state would have a budget deficit, calculated blogger George Noga, a Certified Public Account.

Gov. Walker wants public employees in Wisconsin to contribute roughly half as much, proportionately, to their health plans and pensions as do workers in the private sector.

The governor also wants to restrict public employee unions to bargaining for wages only, leaving the health and benefit packages and work rules up to elected officials to decide. And he wants the state to stop collecting dues for the unions, and to require them to win recertification elections each year.

If local governments in Wisconsin could make changes in these areas, they could save about $1.44 billion in the next biennium, said Patrick McIlheran of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.

That’s critical, because the 57 percent of the state’s budget that goes to aid to local governments has to be slashed to close the $3.6 billion hole.

Without that flexibility, the only way state and local governments can control costs is to lay people off. One Wisconsin school district has announced plans to lay off a third of its teachers. Gov. Walker estimates that if his bill doesn’t pass, up to 12,000 state and local government workers would get the axe.

The unwillingness of public employee unions to make even the smallest sacrifices on behalf of the beleagured taxpayers who support them was illustrated last August when the teachers’ union in Milwaukee sued to prevent the school board from dropping Viagra from its health plan coverage

This is “an assault on unions,” said President Barack Obama of Gov. Walker’s plan.

That’s true. But Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the president most favorable to industrial trade unions, would have stood with Mr. Walker.

“Meticulous attention should be paid to the special relations and obligations of public servants to the public itself,” FDR said in 1937. “The process of collective bargaining, as usually understood, cannot be transplanted into the public service.”

There’s a critical difference between private sector unions and public employee unions, noted liberal Time magazine columnist Joe Klein:

“Industrial unions are organized against the might and greed of ownership,” Mr. Klein said. “Public employees unions are organized against the might and greed…of the public?”

The primary reason why public employee unions are a bad idea is because politicians pay them off with our money. These unions receive billions from taxpayers, who in return contribute millions to the politicians who gave them those billions.

This is a good deal for teachers in Milwaukee Public Schools, who this year will receive an average of $100,000 in pay and benefits for nine months work.

Milwaukee teachers aren’t getting the big bucks because they’ve been doing a crackerjack job. In a ranking of the 100 worst performing schools in America, 8 were in Milwaukee.

Students in Milwaukee public schools perform half as well as the state average in most measures of academic achievement. And the state average isn’t so great. Two thirds of Wisconsin’s 8th graders can’t read proficiently, according to the National Assessment for Education Progress This despite the highest per pupil spending in the Midwest.

And it’s a good deal for the politicians who hand them our money. Public employee unions are now the biggest spenders in our elections.

But it’s a terrible deal for the rest of us.

Far too many state legislatures “have been cowed by the political power of the unions and enacted contracts that force state and city governments to be run for the benefit of their employees, rather than for their citizens,” Mr. Klein said.

The White House on Thursday denied that aides were trying to hold secret meetings with lobbyists by conducting them in a building just off the White House campus.
The denial was in response to an article claiming the administration has been holding meetings at the Jackson Place complex near the White House — lobbyists said they felt the White House was moving the meetings to keep their names off the official White House visitor list.

Lawsuit: ‘Honor killings’ OK by Michigan Shariah

Written by Ed on February 24, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

A lawsuit that challenges the official cooperation by the city of Dearborn, Mich., which has one of the largest populations of Muslims in the U.S., with Islamic interests makes a stunning allegation: that under the recognized “Shariah” law in the city, there have been “honor killing” murders that have been “covered up.”

The lawsuit was brought by the Thomas More Law Center on behalf of four Christians whose speech and other civil rights were restricted by official city action at several recent city-sponsored Arab Fest events.

Communists, socialists, Marxists, Oh my!

Written by Ed on February 24, 2011 – 11:00 pm -

One of the main groups organizing the Wisconsin union protests is a spinoff from an activist academy modeled after Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky and described as teaching tactics of direct action, confrontation and intimidation.

President Obama once funded that academy – the radical Midwest Academy. He has been closely tied to the group’s founder, socialist activist Heather Booth.
