    Now Willie from the efficient frontier of personal delusion,

    SA is actively setting prices. Which means they are actively managing the marginal supply. Whatever happens in Libya is just a variable in their calculations.

    The interesting wrinkle wrinkle is that high oil prices insured American production levels which would guarantee discounts to their world bench mark. So other than to #$%$ our domestic investment by uncertainty there is no rational reason to do it.

    Except to test our cost of production and how irrational Obama's GW primitive religion goes. Obama is after all the world clown who brought out the Benghazi video to the UN while apologizing in Muslim countries for it. Never mind ten people of earth even viewed the silly thing.

    Realize too that just because you are not man enough to admit what corn ethanol did to the middle east does not mean the House of Saud does not. They had to send troops to stabilize even oil wealthy Sunni states.

    YOur snarking does not even reach a level of sophistic.

    Even O'Stewart as a gifted irrational comic had enough traditional sand to congratulate the Republicans on their win. But then he is a well meaning deluded American and your are an alien lunatic.

    Now now board risible gomerel defective corn ethanol, Opie

    The new House and Senate are not even sworn in until January.

    WSJ has a joint priority essay from the Speaker and the Leader this morning.

    Hopefully both men can rise to cap their careers as Statesmen.

    It will not be easy as the vainglorious Obama prepares to wildly abuse his power to throw America into another hot passionate division. Abuse of executive authority undermining our Constitution to grant political favors to illegal immigrants.

    Sadly the real question is do these illegal immigrants wish to join us in our propositional society or is America just a job to them? Is superficial identity collective and the empty symbols more important than the individual propositional decision about the nature of this life.

    Conditions are building for a normal economic recovery. Lower energy and food prices generating additional consumer demand. Corporate tax reform to lower marginal rates by getting out the Progressive special interest corruption his deep support on both sides.

    There are two critical objectives in America. Creation of plentiful gainful work opportunity. Second is restoring enough opportunity that our economic classes are not stratifications. Dr. Carson and Mr. Hamm are truly exceptional people and most of us do not have that level of God Given Talents to develop. But, this is why we must strive to make it easier.

    One thing is certain after the depressing charlie Rose show with the mentally calcified Progressive elite making their declarative proclamations from their condition of willful ignorance on the nature of economics. I do not wish to live in the America these self absorbed deludes would impose.

    Econ 101 is to empower Americans. Empower them to a level of independence. This is why the greatest generation was content with a small paid off house and car. They understood independence is only possible in a condition of self reliance,is true Liberty.

    Not the highest ever American oil production. But it is possible to do.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Nov 6, 2014 9:15 AM Flag

    It really is not possible to overstate how much dysfunction Obama's passive aggressive politics and unscience EPA have created in our economy.

    As the Great American CEO at EPD says, everything exported from America should be solid. In other words processed into value added products by high wage American jobs.

    Charlie Rose was interesting. Old news editors with no training in and clearly no interest in learning pronouncing the Obama economic performance excellent. That economics was a question of general emotions rather than opportunity and positive incentive.

    Powerful minds in a perpetual childish state. Big name editors no less.

    No problem. Hire lunatic Kruggerman to dissemble and as he has a collectivist prize, they know economics.

    The Progressive condition really is breathtaking to observe.

    Natural-gas liquids, or NGLs, include propane, butane, isobutene, ethane and natural gasoline. (Natural gasoline is different from natural gas, which is not an NGL.) They are also called liquefied petroleum gases, or LPGs, although some say LPG is a narrower category that only includes propane and butane. The most common way to produce NGLs is to separate them out from natural gas in a processing plant. NGLs can also be produced in oil refineries alongside diesel and other fuels.
    Share on Twitter
    Most of the NGLs produced in the U.S. are used by petrochemical companies to make plastics and other products. Propane is also used for home heating and crop drying; butane and isobutene can be blended into gasoline, and Canada mixes natural gasoline into its heavy oil to make it flow easily in pipelines.
    Share on Twitter
    NGL production from gas-processing plants rose to about 3 million barrels a day for the first time last month – not even counting the NGLs that are produced from refineries. Consulting firm Bentek Energy expects gas-plant production to exceed 4.5 million barrels a day by 2019.
    Chemical companies are spending tens of billions of dollars to build plants in the U.S., especially on the Gulf Coast, because of cheap domestic NGLs and natural gas. Sasol Ltd. is spending nearly $9 billion on an ethane cracker complex in Louisiana.
    U.S. NGLs sell below international prices, thanks to booming production, and overseas buyers are eager to import them. The U.S. exported 480,000 barrels a day of NGLs in 2013, says Bentek, and that will grow to 1.5 million barrels a day by 2019. International companies including Saudi Basic Industries Corp. and Reliance Industries Ltd. announced a string of new export deals in August to start supplying their plants overseas with U.S. ethane.

    Hey defective corn ethanol Opie,

    No man knows the future. Pay attention. Then maybe the OLB can escape the altered reality maze you have placed yourself in.

    Interesting thing about investing at a rational level. We are trying to create a diversified portfolio. So by definition the random chance which can not be know is mitigated.

    There is a further thought that within a diversified portfolio an efficiency frontier can be created. Further there is the reality of random walk in the short term.

    KNow you know full well why I am grateful for my investment results. We had plenty of OLB massed clown car determined behaviour routines for a very long time. It died off for some reason you full well know.

    So why not take this moment to make a choice? To reach for your human potential rather than settle on material nihilism and Progressive self myth creation? YOu will thank your self.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Nov 5, 2014 4:11 PM Flag

    Opie we are on an American EP board.

    None here has in interest in having a foreign power artificially and with intent to curtain our activity by discounting our product.

    I figured incorrectly that the OLB troopers could reason one step ahead.

    SA is not after market share. They are attempting to disrupt the rational or free market development of our oil and gas. They have no better ally than American Progressives and their willfully ignorant worshippers of the humanity hating earth goddess.

    Gambling Obama is such a self delude he will take the Progress along to play their normal part in the hurt America journey.

    $80 oil is probably a happy efficiency frontier for American oil development. Poor Obama with all his purposeful passive aggressive nonsense has kept them focused on cost reduction and efficiency.

    Certainly the first rational policy step is just eliminating the corn ethanol mandates in good order.
    The light shales which will be exported are a cleaner superior product at a discount to the political corruption of corn ethanol.

    It is 10% of our gas supply by volume but only 6% by energy and that is what counts. Plus as at least 30% of that potential energy can not be utilized by our cars, less than 5%.

    Yet this insanity is now a major reason farmers can not get their crops to market. It is mandates so regardless of train cost it must be bought. The price offered must be higher than farmers can compete with.

    It really is startling how much pollution and cost can be lowered by simply following science. Science which unlike Progressive consensus emotions requires intellectual honesty.

  • norrishappy norrishappy Nov 5, 2014 3:36 PM Flag

    The Progressive Oil majors are simply responding to what Obama wants. Which is why the foreign political majors were the first to move.

    "The world’s largest resources company BHP Billiton Limited (ASX: BHP) has begun exporting oil products from North America, despite strict laws prohibiting most petroleum exports from the US."

    If there was ever a time to get rid of the insane corruption of corn ethanol, it is now.

    Actually what should happen is posters on an investment board should have some clue to the economics of their investments.

    But as a Progressive you never will do.

    This is definitely going to push the failed Progressive state of Ven. Popular elections which suspend or replace the rule of law is not democracy. It is the fail point of democracy.
    Why America has a Republic and not a democracy.

    One science based gasoline blend is the wise policy response. Which includes no insane mandate for corn ethanol corruption.

    Now completely defective therefore political corruption mandates Opie,

    SA has built their control over the last marginal barrel of oil over a generation. They have the national currency reserves to weather a current account deficit for a nearly unlimited duration. Also have millions of barrels of capacity they can surge or take back from the market on a whim. The Saudi generation managing the petrochemical complex are more than competent.

    As for American natural gas it is more than proven. Which is why at sells at an 80% discount to manipulated oil. Without Obama running his Progressive dark ages inquisition, our free market economy would rapidly embrace it.

    UNlike the insane base load solar Progressive feeding pits, all which is required is a Prez who tells business go for it. We will clear the way as much as possible.

    Toyota is ahead of their own schedule. Further after the completely corrupt political attacks on them by the Obama regime, nothing is being rushed.

    Thanks to willfully ignorant American environmentalists we still have corn ethanol against the RFS law itself and Toyota has a working commercial/consumer fuel cell. SOmething very interesting too.

    The fuel cell in the car maybe so efficient and require so little maintenance that it will create the distributive power utopia. Which of course would devastate all the dissembling and out right lies the Progressives have told about electricity rates.

    Toyota may not be the most nimble car company in the world. But they have the best culture and the longest vision. Their primary value point is long term dependability.

    HIgh Priest fool Chu is a bright person. Certainly he understood the hydrogen fuel cell held the most promise for an energy and pollution solution. Problem of course is with our vast reserves of natural gas it would do the creative destruction thing on base load solar panels and wind mills.

    Plus a Toyota has more American labor content than UAW kept companies. Good stuff.

    Completely defective therefore corrupt corn ethanol Opie,

    Clearly SA still controls the last marginal barrel of production. It is the necessity for them to continue to control the last marginal barrel of production which is driving the 'special' American pricing.

    Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will go into production ahead of schedule, with production planned for mid-December 2014.

    Sales will also begin "by the end of the year" reports Japan Times (via Autoblog), ahead of Toyota's original on-sale date some time in 2015.

    No reason has been given for bringing the car forward, but it's safe to assume Toyota's development and testing is going smoothly so far – unusual in the alternative fuel vehicle market.

    Funny thing about being Americans. We are always looking for new and better ways of doing things. Wishing those wild cat American entrepreneurs to prove themselves correct. Something in economics called creative destruction.

    The Hydrogen Fuel cell is just this type of leap.

    Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell vehicle will go into production ahead of schedule, with production planned for mid-December 2014.

    Sales will also begin "by the end of the year" reports Japan Times (via Autoblog), ahead of Toyota's original on-sale date some time in 2015.

    Thanks to Obama and his academic high priest fool Chu, Toyota is getting there first.

    At least in America this could finally break the back of the ability to manipulate oil prices. true source competition for energy.

    YOu know I have been thinking about dam technology lately as well. No reason it should be necessary to block a river. The need is to simply store water in a lake or pond. Something which was common in the west on small local scale until the EPA went unscience progressive dark ages under Obama.

    Ah defective political corruption for corn ethanol Opie,

    American energy policy has been delusional and irrational for generations now.

    Our initial response to the economy killing oil embargo was more coal in electrical generation. In our rush we caused problems with acid rain and other truly nasty pollution. But as Americans do, we dealt with it. A modern American coal plant really is a wonder.

    I am certain we can do even better. For that is our American history.

    What is different is Progressives like Obama boastfully rigging the game. Deciding not based on science but emotional whim that coal can never be clean enough. Truth is as the cheapest source they have to get rid of the most economically viable competition to their insane base load solar panels. (Again, there are plenty of viable applications for solar power. But it is not these insane base load Progressive special interest feeding freeze projects - Yea Buffett is buy in for a reason and it is not the free market economics)

    Progressives used to like natural gas when it was expensive and undependable. BUt now they irrationally hate it because Providence has made American natural gas cheap and secure. So they hate it. Pay off a deluded academic high priest some where to claim the end of the world will arrive by cow farts. How much worse could escaping natural gas be? Like the the coal dissembling.

    America has an opportunity to clean the air and put our natural gas in direct competition with oil as surface fuel. National security, cleaner air and higher real incomes resulting in more demand. Therefore more economic opportunity.

    Problem is we have to put the Progressive worshippers of the humanity hating earth goddess in a well deserved time out. They protest the XL link and other efficient pipe investments simply because they are willfully ignorant. Say nothing about corn ethanol as it sets the world on fire and creates huge algae blooms which disrupt the water supply to our cities.

    Let us all hope old McConnell is ready to rise above what he has been.

    That he caps his career with something of intrinsic worth.

    Something more than the open maw of the Clinton experience.

    I wish I could believe Bill on the identity politics comments.

    But at this point I believe if once again reflects a change coming over Americans.

    Truth is working class whites and inner city blacks are closer in demographics than ever before.
    A little more church values and economic growth is what both need most.

    Certainly I do not want to see any more Global Warming class struggle delusions of working class blacks and working class white for Climate justice. delusional 'Diversity'

    It really is true. America is great for we have strived for the good as individuals, together. Enabling God's imperfect people to do great things. True social growth towards a more mature people wishing to empower each other to our talents.

  • Progressive like Druban will happily play their useful fool. Keep the export ban and depresses the American energy renaissance providing economic growth and national security. Unfortunately America has no shortage of defective corn ethanol fired Opies with the self awareness of six year old self absorbed children.

    Of course the childish Progressive response will feed the uncertainty the House of SA is attempting. Enough to kill our renaissance while oil settles back to an uncertain higher price.

    Few Americans can remember the days when real Democratic leaders like Moynihan would use his career of service to make one last critical point. A comment on the condition of the American black family not to hurt feelings but as an expression of selfish caring.

    Of course it is not a pigment issues now. Many Americans who are black are poor. It is poor Americans who have gone over to the Progressive material nihilism that the institution of marriage is not a critical determinate variable of demographic outcome.

    Americans from Asia do not has superior genes. They do not have magical powers. They have strong families. In fact, there superior social economic performance can be tied to to that one variable of social commitment alone.

    What the real world will deliver to an individual or family is very different from the optimum. So it is correct to admire those Americans who still strive for the good. Healthy human relationships centered on family. Over coming a less than optimum situation rather than a churlish dismal of the institutional of marriage when the science is not a matter of public opinion.

    It is true of corporations as well. HOme Depot rejects GE corporate culture of material nihilism. It doesn't just survive but thrives. Microsoft throws off GE corporate nihilism and the improvement is far more sudden than can be explained by 'leadership. How has GE done despite all the political billions of tax money shovelled to it?

    Defective and criminal corn ethanol Opie,

    SA is not providing the American market a special discount to our benefit. They desire to maintain their geo-political influence over us.

    The science based policy response which by definition includes economics unlike Progressive group opinions, would be to move our natural gas into direct competition with oil in surface fuel.

    The world got on a diesel fad as it was possible to get a few more mpg on the higher energy content. Plus latin America runs on heavy transport.

    When a barrel of oil is cracked, the product can be changed at the margin but not materially changed. Which should keep gasoline prices down.

    Using science it is possible to eliminate insane and therefore abusive corn ethanol. Plus the unscience local EPA imposed unclean air gasoline blends. Which would lower real gasoline prices by more than 7% in rational states.

    There is no escaping American oil in the $70 will be a danger to oil production and the ngls.
    Whether Obama actually carries through on allowing oil exports is significant.

    FedX is recent good news.

    Heavy trucking does not have the electric drive trains which were developed for the hybrids. Well, in Toyota case as the stepping stone to hydrogen fuel cells.

    So corn ethanol or defective Opie, I have no idea what you or the olb are trying to express. Except you are unhappy and throwing daily tantrums.

    Republicans take the Senate. Many Americans will be astonished that Congress will be putting bills of Obama desk after four years of Reid corruption and perversion of authority.

    It will be interesting to see how the dishonored press explains the sudden change in the activity level of Congress.

    By the way Obama let it slip he will not enforce the oil export ban. Sadly, once again he will do it in a deceptive way. Guess he had a temper tantrum with SA sticking it in his face on this night.
    Really childish as it will really anger his worshippers of their humanity hating earth goddess.

    The good news is economics in Southern states will still favor exporting refined products rather than raw oil.

    Heaven help us if Hillary some how wins.

    It will run extremely inefficiently. Our 'flex fuel' mandate remains tuned to a science based gasoline standard.

    So the ability to withstand to a limited degree the corrosive and water separation properties of ethanol does not and will not eliminate the 30% waste of the greatly diminished energy content.

    Plus you prove you are a dissembler at best and at this point a bald faced liar about the true cost of ethanol.

    The rational way to measure gasoline value or any energy source is the energy content.

    Ethanol has 40% less energy than a science based gasoline formulation.

    At the current $1.60 ethanol remains vastly more expensive than gasoline.

    At a $1.60 with 40% less energy a gallon of gasoline equivalent for ethanol is $2.66 a gallon.

    Gasoline is $2.14 a gallon wholesale. Not to mention the corn ethanol corruption must travel by train and truck so the cost is greatly underestimated at consumption point.

    Finally our 'flex fuel' engines remained designed for a science based gasoline blend. The computer can adjust for the defective fuel but not over come the physics based incompatibility of detonation points between ethanol and science based gasoline. So best case at least 30% of the limited energy in the ethanol is wasted. Of course 30% waste means the car engine can not run efficiently so ware is increased. Additional costs to the corrosive power and water separation properties.

    Wind Mill fool Chu killed our hydrogen fuel cells programs. Now Toyota is introducing fuel cell cars to their home market. Proving the technology for mass consumption.

    With a 50% reduction in GG and at least a 30% efficiency improvement over ICE.

    The real question is why do you believe our government has the authority to impose defective corn ethanol on American consumers? Why did it not disclose the mandate destroyed boat and small engines across America? Why doesn't the government inform consumer about the real gge cost of ethanol?
