Just two days after President Obamas re-election, the Obama Interior Department announced a plan to shut down 1.6 million acres of federal land to oil shale development. The land had originally been slated for drilling under President George W. Bush.
By significantly reducing the acreage of wilderness potentially available for leasing, Secretary Salazar is laying out a creative, thoughtful and more responsible approach in managing some of our most precious resources, said Bobby McEnaney, senior lands analyst with the Natural Resources Defense Council.

The sheiks can sleep soundly knowing their fortunes are safe.
The oil will still be there when we come to our senses.
Or it’ll be there for the Chinese.
Lots of really bad things are coming now. Sure, it makes sense to trade oil for “wilderness” and “grouse habitat”.
Brought to you by the a holes who were too holy to vote for Romney whose first campaign plank was energy development.
Romney’s energy plan would have created lots of good jobs and revived many communities in America. Sigh.
I THOUGHT EVERYTHING WAS ON THE TABLE??? Oh wait, Obama said it so it must be a lie.
Sooooo...is it safe to assume the energy secretary is all over this, fighting Salazar tooth and nail to keep this land open for development.....right?
The little prick isn’t wasting any time is he?
Heartbreaking, isn’t it?
the day will come when a man answers for his sins.........
where do these assholes come from......I read on another thread that the communists are among us and fighting us from within....easy to believe4
people will break, the union will break and this country will go through hell.....who knows what will remain.
We should start a pool - how high will gas be a gallon in 2016?
My guess is $8.50-$9.00 a gallon.
People will start keeping their house thermostat set to 58, just to keep the pipes from freezing because they can’t afford to pay to heat them to a comfortable temp.
Electric bills will be double what they are now.
At least one trillion dollars in tax money will be given to BO’s green energy buddies, who will go bankrupt before the 2016 election
Food prices will be triple what we’re paying now. Most people will eat meat once a week, maybe. Restrictions on food and farming may make meat so scarce and unaffordable that only the most wealthy among us will be able to afford to eat it at all.
BO and Moochelle will eat meat for us and tell us how much they deserve it and how much we don’t. The democrats will applaud BO’s sacrifice.
A very differant way than I would say it, but IT'S TRUE, and it needs to be said many times. They were out in mass yesterday, they need to be told off and shunned. I'll do my part, they make me sick.
Put those PRINCIPALS in their cars, see how far they get on a tank of PRINCIPAL.
the day will come when voters answers for their sins
Well that’s surprising .....
