    It's just a matter of time until the wheels fly off in the Middle East and all the oil stocks will be much more valuable and selling at much higher share prices than they are now.

    Many oil producing countries have 1, 3 and 5 year budget plans based on much higher oil prices than it's selling for now. When they all start feeling the pinch and the Middle East heats up again, oil prices will go up.

    And, the US is now in a comfortable position to take economic and oil power away from Saudi Arabia and the Middle East because of technology advances and new discoveries in the GOM and South America.

    You can't go wrong buying more Chevron and or any of the other large majors. It's long term money in the bank plus the dividends are very healthy and off sets the price of gasoline at the pump when prices rise again.

    Let the California environmental liberal extremest Freeze to death in the dark with, NO WATER!

  • While I'm at it. Let's talk about California's present drought and water problems.....

    The real blame should go to the waco environmentalist extremists who have not allowed a water reservoir or water retention dam of any kind to be built in the state in 35 years.

    Some research should be done to find out the names of the organizations and the responsible people in those organizations. The organizations should be closed up and the responsible people should be prosecuted and sent to jail.

    I do feel sorry for the hard working farmers of California but not for the people that voted for and allowed these waco environmentalist extremists to promulgate and pass legislation barring the construction of water resevoirs.

    When that did not work out for the environmental extremists they changed it to, “global warming.”

    When that did not work out for the environmental extremists, they changed it to, “climate change.”

    What ever happens going forward, it’s going to be your fault and the environmental extremists politicians are going to try and control you and tax you for it.

    Be very careful of your vote in the election in 2016.

    Environmental extremist politicians represent nothing more than another political racket based on lies to get campaign donations from rich 1%’s so they can be re-elected in the their next political race.

    Hillary Clinton will continue the environmental extremist shakedown for her election campaign for 2016.

    The earth has existed for 4.5 billion years. The environmentalists (hot earth people) are trying to predict earths future by using data (inconsistent to say the least) collected over the last 3 or 4 hundred years? Do the math.
    Years / Earth’s Estimated Existence in Years = % Of Earth’s Estimated Life

    400 / 4,500,000,000 = 0.0000001%
    400,000 / 4,500,000,000 = 0.0001%
    4,000,000 / 4,500,000,000 = 0.001%
    400,000,000 / 4,500,000,000 = 8.9%

    After doing some simple math, you can see how utterly ridiculous these predictions by the progressive and liberal left Democrats are?

    Needless to say, that is a fools errand that is being driven by unethical, dishonest and deceptive Left Wing, Liberal Democratic political and economic operatives who want to use global warming as a scare tactic to levy additional taxes on the earths populations.

    The earth is and has been a self healing planet for billions of years.

    The human race is one Krakatoa or one large meteorite away from sleeping with the dinosaurs. And if that should happen again, the earth, as in the past, will heal itself.

    The earths environment is under constant change, getting warmer or colder, our earth’s coast lines waxing or waining, earths ice caps ever increasing or decreasing as the earth’s tectonic plates continue to move with each tens of thousands of years that go by.

    The human race nor the industrial revolution have had no effect on the future environment of the earth as compared to past volcanic activities, tectonic plate movements, past sun activities and or past cosmic activities.

    The above statement and opinion does not in any way relieve the US or other world governments or their populations from using best practices, economically justifiable and low cost methods of producing and consuming energy or taking care of the earths environment in a responsible manner.

    25 of the largest US cities are run by Democratic Mayors, Staff and other city officials with the exception of FT. Worth and Indianapolis.

    Another interesting fact is that the five cities with the highest levels of gun related crime (New York, Washington D.C., Chicago, LA, and San Francisco) all have the most restrictive gun ownership laws. So it would appear that more laws don't make you more safe...just a safer target for the criminals.
    The top ten poorest cities with the highest poverty rates also refuse to elect a Republican Mayor. Why do they continue to elect Democrat mayors? See the definition of insanity: Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

    Detroit The Poorest City in America last Republican mayor 1961 (54 years)
    Buffalo 2nd 1954 (61 yrs)
    Cincinnati 3rd since 1984 (31 yrs)

    Miami 5th NEVER had Republican Mayor

    Put Me In Charge…
    Waco Tribune Herald, Waco, Texas

    Put me in charge of food stamps. I’d get rid of Lone Star cards; no cash for Ding Dongs or Ho Ho’s, just money for 50 pound bags for rice and beans, blocks of cheese and all the powdered milk you can haul away. If you want steak and frozen pizza, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of Medicaid. The first thing I’d do is to get women Norplant birth control implants or tubal ligations. Then, we’ll test recipients for drugs, alcohol and nicotine. If you want to reproduce or use drugs, alcohol, or smoke, then get a job.

    Put me in charge of government housing. Ever live in a military barracks? You will maintain our property in a clean and good state of repair. Your “home” will be subject to to inspections anytime and possessions will be inventoried. If you want a plasma TV or Xbox 360, then get a job and your own place.

    In addition, you will either present a check stub from a job each week or you will report to a “government” job. It may be cleaning the roadways of trash, painting and repairing public housing, whatever we find for you. We will sell your 22 inch rims and low profile tires and your blasting stereo and speakers and put that money towards the “common good.”

    Before you write that I’ve violated someone’s rights, realize that all the above is voluntary. If you want our money, accept our rules. Before you say that this would be “demeaning” and ruin their “self-esteem,” consider that it wasn’t that long ago that taking someone else’s money for doing absolutely nothing was demeaning and lowered self-esteem.

    If we are expected to pay for other people’s mistakes we should at least attempt to make them learn from their bad choices. The current system rewards them for continuing to make bad choices.

    And, while you are on Government subsistence, you no longer can vote! Yes that is correct. For you to vote would be a conflict of interest. You will voluntarily remove yourself from voting while you are receiving a government welfare check. If you want to vote, then get a job!

Check it out and see which party the Mayors, City Council and other City Leaders are in cities that are suffering from racial strife, poverty, poor school systems, high crime and citizen death rates as well as unfunded pension liabilities and other unpaid liabilities.....

    When have you ever heard Sharpton, Obama, Holder, deBlasio, Jackson, Rangel, The Reverend Wright, Farrakhan or any of the, so called, super intelligent Hollywood liberals speak about the 5 things listed above or give guidance to young black people or other minorities regarding the principles and path to a successful, respectful, law abiding and fulfilling family life?

    Now let me see if I have this right.

    Our welfare systems is set up and encourages single mothers to have more babies as a way of earning a living. In many cases of multiple children in a single mother family,  the mother’s children have been fathered by multiple males and no marriages.

    There's no guidance or discipline in the home.  The family situation is so unstable, that “Junior or Missy" don't even know where or to whom to send a Father's Day card.

    Junior and Missy get dumped into a broken educational system where they are socially promoted because of the Teachers Unions and an overwhelmed school district that is bloated and can't hire qualified or fire unqualified teachers or properly deal with undisciplined, disrespectful and surly children, students and uneducated parents.

    Junior and Missy's major formative influences are bad TV programs, X rated movies, “gangsta” rap videos and music and a corresponding peer group of “gangsta” wannabes that show no morals, values or principles.

    At age 18, and in many cases before the age of 18, Junior and Missy are turned loose on society carrying bad attitudes, broken compasses and little respect for the mores of society, authority or the law.

    Junior and Missy get themselves in big trouble with both social misfits and the law and find themselves in dire and life changing situations and consequences.

    And now, the solution is that police need more training and understanding?

    Are you kidding me?

    Pardon me for asking, but do you really believe this load of political hog wash from the liberal left?

    In the majority of US states, there are too many federal and state workers, unions, teachers, police and fire fighters with unrealistic pension promises (underfunded and or unfunded in most cases I might add) for politics in your state to change in the near future.

    Hard working American tax payers are being out voted. Unless all those hard working people that usually stay home during election time don’t decide to get out and vote in 2016, existing politics in your state is unlikely to change.

    In your state, what is the ratio of federal, state, teacher, firefighter, police and other union employees vs ordinary working citizens who either own and or are employed in private business? How many people are either on welfare, food stamps and or other state or federal assisted programs funded by working tax payers? How many illegal aliens are in your state that are on welfare, food stamps and or other state and federal assistance programs funded by working tax payers?

    As in the past, the majority will vote for the party that says “more” not less and the majority of hard working tax paying Americans will stay home and not cast their vote.

    Unless things change in 2016, they win and hard working Americans will continue to lose!!!

    What is it going to take for hard working, tax paying American citizens to get to the voting both and vote in 2016??
