gj0084, Hisstik and other political posters, I think Drew Morris probably does have one valid point that many of us have gone over the top where we are now making political posts that don't even contain the words "natural gas", let alone the word "Westport". I am willing to dial it back a little to at least energy related and natural gas related (hopefully directly Westport related). How about the rest of you? I know guys like Hisstik and I have been around this board for years, and have always had political differences, but this thing where we are now arguing about broader issues far removed from energy, natural gas and Westport is a rather new development.
Have a great weekend.
Political posts are not required reading. No one has to read them or be a participant.
No harm done I say. In closing I'd like to respectfully point out that in truth there
is much more resemblance to Alfalfa than there is to Buckwheat.
My suggestion was simply to try to keep the political posts energy related, but obviously people can do whatever they want.
Obama and his radical friends want to cap and tax natural gas as a greenhouse gas polluter. See my list of evidence below, including Obama's strong support of the Waxman-Markey cap and tax bill in 2009. The evidence is incontrovertible. And for some percentage of radical progressives, cap and tax isn't even about global warming, but instead is about power, taxing, worldwide redistribution of income (global cap and tax agreements) and forcing "social justice".
Romney, on the other hand, plans to amend the Clean Air Act to exclude carbon dioxide regulation from its purview and is planning to prevent over regulation of shale gas development and extraction. He will open up more Federal lands and waters to drilling for oil and natural gas. The current boom we are having in domestic energy production is occurring on State and private lands, not Federal lands and waters. I have no doubt that we will produce substantially more domestic energy under a Romney Presidency and have lower energy costs overall and more jobs overall than we would under an ongoing Obama Presidency.
Notice how I did not start any of the 'political' threads. But I will not tolerate lies and ignorance posted without providing a response based on reality and historical facts.
Hate Obama all you want. Praise Romney/Ryan all you want. But it better be based on truth and not lies spread by the right.
I heard Romney tout natural gas today in New Hampshire. I will not let the left preach that he is against natural gas without calling them out on it. Sorry, I am part of the silent majority that is learning to get involved.
But, I will do so with civility. We should at least agree to that...
It's irrelevant which presidential candidate will be good for NG & Westport, What's important is, who is going to do a good job for the whole country & people in the next 4 years ......nevertheless, freedom of speech seems to reign on all message board......however this board was intended for Westport topics only, wasn't it.
