OPEC Upset With President Bush

Looks like President Bush struck a nerve with the mafioso cartel known as OPEC. Bush stated last night that he wanted to reduce our dependence on Middle Eastern oil by 75% by the year 2025. The President wants new technologies for renewable energy sources to take the place of oil in America. This is one approach but it would be nice if we could drill for oil on our own territory. We have oil and natural gas that could help until those new technologies came to pass. Here is what the OPEC president had to say:

Edmund Daukoru, Nigeria’s energy minister and president of Opec(sic), said: “We do believe that energy issues cannot be handled in a unilateral way; we all have to work together towards global energy security.”

I guess this guy’s idea of working together is producing oil in an area where it is unstable and making the rest of the world pay for the instability. He must think it is peachy that they can raise prices whenever they get their shorts in a knot and they can threaten to cut production at the drop of a hat. If they want global security maybe they should stop acting like thugs and start acting more like businessmen. Maybe they could stop those pesky terrorist attacks, beheadings, kidnappings, and other acts of crime so rampant in that part of the world. Maybe they can act responsibly to make oil supplies more secure and they can stop playing games.

No, we need to drive on with other sources. Of course, I wonder how long it will be before some wacko moonbat who is all in favor of renewable energy and less oil dependence comes forward and says Bush alienated the oil mafia.
