The whole Hands Up emotional delusion has turned the naive and base emotionalists into tools rather than problem solvers. Tools of the material nihilist collectivists. The cannon folder of the fundamental change to collectivism. As always in human history, they are expendable.
Which is why 'Black Americans' coming home to the community from any other philosophy are racially attacked. Some how the material nihilists believe they have the power to take God's grant of blackness away from an individual. The arrogance really is beyond all reason.
Gets back to the Jon and the Judge dialog. HUmanity deciding what human rights mean by massed opinion rather than the reason required by the Just or Justice. Washington proclaimed the source of purposeful human reason.
There are systemic problems these communities can not overcome on their own. It is necessary to seek out natural community leaders striving for the Servants Heart to fashion solutions. Men and women who seek the good for their community, education and economic empowerment which nurture Individual Liberty . The honest people who admit mistakes and make corrections. The people the larger community can assist in their great tasks.
No it is not sharpie or Obama holding up Sharpie, to spread mass delusion and emotionalism which provides both secular power and wealth.
We are wasting the God Given Talents of over 10% of the American population. We must stop this. Mike Brown is not a causality of the police, He is a causality of the systemic barrier which must be brought down.
Children having public tantrums and naming it Civil Rights does not make it so. The real problem is they really do not understand why it is not so.
Hum, wouldn't Rev. Alveda King be the primary source for educated children? Where are the rational and purposeful discussions of strategy and moral foundation in this handsup insanity?
Why are there no cogent explanations of the solutions sought? Just tantrum.
Now Jon is a gifted comic which seems to require irrationality. So Mad Who can understand why he remains unchanged and unchanging in the depth of the cave. The other shadows are absurd and amusing. He is so engrossed in the absurdity and resulting amusement he never looks for the Light.
Ah but the Judge went to Princeton. Which was the intellectual center of the Second Great Awakening which ended by ending slavery.
Yet his theory of humanity granting rights to humanity as a function of social contract belongs with Thomas Paye, The Rights of Man and the fruit of the French Revolution. Yes stress that human equality rather than God Liberty thing. How did that end up compared to the American Awakening revolutions? What was the end fruit?
Reminds me of Mark Twain ' I am a blind eyed fool. But I am God's fool. But, all of God's creations are due respect'.
So it is right to look past the primitiveness. A primitiveness which the young naive and energetic Libertines do so like. These are men of great accomplishment seeking the good.
One day I Pray they will stop playing with the shadows and seek the source of Light. However, Mad Who does to note both have been at this shadow game over the centuries and both still hang with the children.
Beside Princeton went primitive generations ago. The whole Ivy League. Jon and Judge went to Ivy League schools. Maybe they can not help it. But, still God creations are due respect and therefore concern like the capitalized general Welfare of our Constitution.
Guess the Judge has taken to reading our Constitution for the articles like Jon. which would explain it. Determined or simply willful behaviour routines. Very old habits and ways are hard to break.
While in the White House, Lincoln wrote out his private "Meditation on Divine Will":
"The will of God prevails. In great contests each party claims to act in accordance with the will of God. Both may be, and one must be, wrong. God cannot be for and against the same thing at the same time. In the present civil war it is quite possible that God's purpose is something different from the purpose of either party -- and yet the human instrumentalities, working just as they do, are of the best adaptation to effect His purpose. I am almost ready to say that this is probably true -- that God wills this contest, and wills that it shall not end yet. By his mere great power, on the minds of the now contestants, He could have either saved or destroyed the Union without a human contest. Yet the contest began. And, having begun He could give the final victory to either side any day. Yet the contest proceeds."[September, 1862]
Lincoln was after the age of Prophets. God did not directly speak to him with tasks and clear the way by open demonstration. It was left to an imperfect man to follow his Guidance. What was the Good and how Justice could be reached.
Like our Founders, Lincoln was Humbled enough by events to take no personal credit for mighty works. They saw the Wonder of Providence. Lack of humility makes it simple for Progressives to ascribe and assume motives. Demanding imperfect men be perfect. Which is a real shame. For it would impossible if Americans were not now ignorant of our Reformation and the first Awakening theology. If the secular religion of material nihilism did not replace the True Religion of Washington's Thanksgiving Proclamation in public school instruction. Lowest common denominator is not education or Servants Heart
Why Jon's flock of naive emotional youthful libertines cheers 'freedom' but not Liberty.
For God Gifted Liberty comes with a debt of virtue. Virtue which can be reasoned as necessary for Just society.
Twettle Judge+Dee Jon
Lincoln accepted the Republican nomination with the famous words: "'A house divided against itself cannot stand.' I believe this Government cannot endure permanently half-slave and half-free."
It really was not a question at our founding that slavery had to end.
Well to remember our Founders set off on a journey which changed them all. Elites who wished to be equal British citizens discovered on their journey they were Individual Liberty radicals. A journey from self interest to the Servants Heart. They did not begin for war and revolution but to avoid it.
Slavery did melt away in the North. It certainly would have been to Northern political interest and power to name slaves property. No votes. But that was not acceptable. So we have other PEOPLE rather than slaves.
The poor judge simply insists on being primitive with his metaphysics and resulting legalism. Humanity granting each other human rights. Until a modern day mind of a slaver like gruber Mahered proclaims portions of humanity inferior. It certainly is true people are not equal in ability with no need to engage the canard of race. The poor judge is simply primitive and illogical at the base and so his building falls over. For he is building on 'majority rules' opinion of man or democracy rather than Constitutional Republic with Rights Gifted by God.
Lincoln wanted to end slavery. But not at the cost of a great war. A war which killed more Americans than the rest combined. Including two world wars. Given what happened with Jim Crow, the war did not cure the real issue of slavery.
Natural gas and ngls are then likely to have a relationship to economic value. At about the same point export of ng begins and ngl export trains are expanded.
Dangers Aside, Railways Reshape Crude Market
Shipping Crude by Rail Expands as New Pipelines Hit Headwinds and Train Companies Reap Revenue

The Dore story is great. What American do that Europeans do not.
Anyways, being able to produce oil at $50 is not the same as getting to market for $50. Which is what we are now witnessing in train valuations. Trucking? forget about it.
Of course the necessary crackdown on flairing in Dakota and Texas becomes a barrier as well. Wonderful when regulators are focused on the facts and the Good rather than Progressive primitive religion.
I actually like the few remaining Manchin Democrats.
But with the Progressive inexplainably putting both dementia Pelosi and Reid back n leadership, the break from extreme collectivism will not be as sharp as it should be. They hold the money and the machinery.
Those unscience EPA fiats only need simple Congress majorities to land on Obama's desk.
Republicans also need to put together a real school choice which empowers parents.
Evangelicals in the Republicans party need to make connections to Free Will or Liberty faith communities in our inner cities. It would be excellent if they could organize wider community buy in or shop days. It will have to be people of good will using their logic to be purposeful. Sustain and encourage the Good.
Of course corn ethanol mandates just have to go. A clear demonstration that America and science go ahead of extremely destructive special interest.
Yea stopping those insane wind extender giveaways are critical too. The power grids are already unstable and inefficient with the nonsense already built. Should be left out of the short term package.
Willie this is more irrational then your normal level of irrational.
American oil production exploded into almost 20% annual growth for the last few years. Putting an addition $4 bbd into the system. Nor was it slowing.
The only limiting factor was infrastructure. Train system was at capacity and crowding out the rational economy.
With the best tracks on public land put of limits by Obama's grubbering. Permits on public land are down over 50% on his watch. So the real American breakeven point is lower.
Saudi Arabia /Sunni OPEC were forced to fill the leadership vacuum Obama created. While they were at it they are stress testing the real cost structure of American production. They would also like to discourage additional infrastructure investment. American trains should only be pulling oil while a pipe is being built.
YOu could increase your understanding. But your Progressive collectivist condition precludes it. Very sad way to spend a limited time of life.
Of course they have no better ally than grubering Obama and his delusive progressive automatons. Happy about Obama's unilateral surrender to china for the Global Warming religion. Encouraging this hands up myth feeding an irrational freedom of expression rather than productive freedom of speech and therefore thought focused on solutions.
Kudos to Sir Charles. There are systemic problems which caused young Micheal to lose his life. But it was not the police. Now after over two generations of lost Americans, it is time to engage in freedom of speech between people of integrity towards solutions.
So of course Progressive have launched into a nationwide emotional tantrum of alienating fellow Americans from communities which need our support. More economic opportunity and school choice.
It is all tied together by Progressives exploiting the emotions of those least able to defend themselves and maintain their Liberty.
Hostile lunatic Alien Willie,
Russia does have currency reserves - oil you know.
What can not be managed is the consumer inflation from a 40% decline in the value of the rubble or rubble. Of course Putin's effort to block food imports is a joke. It will only make prices even higher.
It is future prices and not spot prices which drive drilling investment. I know, I know Progressive material nihilists have real trouble with any concept beyond the immediate moment.
But I must admit the OLB naming Opie intelligent as in rational is a new amusement. the persona is irrational and seeks to make other posters irrational. So no surprise the OLB seeks to make a connection to the irrational. Interesting to as the persona actively seeks to discourage the connection for it ruins its game.
Opsie could you be any more delusive?
The Canadian and American economy are really one. Except the Canadians have rational governance at this time.
Why would America want to buy from a hostile corrupt and failing Venezuela rather than the very nice democratic Canadians?
We have a surfeit or at least did have a surfeit of light sweet shale oil Which is why it was big news when it was declared a refined product and therefore could be exported.
The only reason to buy Saudi oil is price rather than need. So for parts of America not serviced by adequate American energy infrastructure, it might be cost effective to take a tanker from SA.
SA is in fact making significant discounts to American customers. Which reflects in no small portion our train system now able to make deliveries of highly discounted American shale oils.
So you comment about lack of competition is well, willfully ignorant.
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russia hopes a deal to supply grain and equipment to Iran in return for oil can be reached soon, Russia's Economy Minister Alexei Ulyukayev said on Sunday."
Russia needs more oil?
I wonder if Lunar Modulator Willie still claims it is all about market share?
Is it a good or bad thing that a Fox Fan believes based on widely available information, differently?
Japan's crude oil imports from Iran have increased by 28% in October since the same period last year, according to new figures released by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
The world's third-biggest economy imported 163,288 barrels per day (bpd) of crude during the period, while India, Irans top oil buyer after China, imported about 309,900 bpd of crude last month.
India's oil imports from Iran saw a 60% year-on-year increase.
Iran's oil exports have increased this year partly due to the interim nuclear deal signed between Tehran and the six world powers P5+1 in November last year.
The interim accord has provided Iran with some sanctions relief. In return Iran agreed to limit certain aspects of its civilian nuclear work. The Islamic Republic's oil and financial sector were hit hardest by the sanctions.
Iran's total in-place oil reserves have been estimated at more than 560bn barrels, with about 140bn barrels of recoverable oil. Heavy and extra heavy varieties of crude oil account for between 70 and 100bn barrels of the total reserves."
Which is why Saudi Arabia is matching Iran real pricing on Asian oil exports.

ANKARA (Reuters) - Russia's Gazprom on Monday cancelled a project to construct the South Stream pipeline to supply gas to southern Europe - an apparent casualty of the dispute between Moscow and the West over Ukraine.
The announcement was made after Russian President Vladimir Putin said earlier on Monday that Moscow could not carry on with the South Stream project if the European Union was opposed to it.
"The project is closed. This is it," Gazprom chief executive Alexei Miller told reporters.
The planned $40 billion Gazprom-led pipeline was supposed to
cross the Black Sea to southern Europe via Bulgaria and had been intended to start supplying gas next year.
Hey how about we just let the free market produce more American natural gas? We only have a 1,000+ year supply on shore. Let us hear finite from the Progressive grubers again.
I would assume significant reduction.Unless oil supply distribution occurs.
Sunni OPEC will keep this up until they have created enough uncertainty to slow the growth rate of American and Canadian oil production. Last thing they want are the Canadian pipe export links being completed.
Sunni OPEC has the initiative. Grubering Progressives have only strengthened their position. America with ore oil and natural gas than we can use must have billion dollar tax giveaways for wind and solar?
It seems the Obama disgrace of bring home the Global Warming American surrender agreement was the trigger. Obama would not cogently respond in Americans interest, if he could.
It is bad for LINE. BUt it would have been far worse if management had to largely complete the Bank of Permian strategy. Management should be able to adjust under the shelter of the hedges and make it through this Progressive Obama time of complete irrationality.
I guess but do not know so.
Put are off. Good fortune to all real investors and rational Just Americans.
Grubering Progressives need a generational time out for the Good.
Yes and see our economy oil shocked. It may happen no matter what we do.
The Progressives want infrasture spending? Stop it with the wealth destroying base load wind mills and solar panels. Build real oil and natural gas infrastructure as clear as is logically possible.
In a free market training only goes on until the pipe is built.
Yea the ethanol corruption and wind lobbies are pretty much one in the same. Cornistan Republican states.
Export American natural gas to save the industry. While stealing tax payer money for special interests in wind and completely defective corn ethanol.
It is a real problem. Progressive like Obama know how to exploit the to be expected rent seeking of Republicans special interests. It is the Republican leaderships responsibility to tamp this down.
Only the Tea Party holds their feet to the fire.
Yet Congress caved and gave the PTC a one-year extension in January 2013, throwing in a bonus: Wind projects under construction by the end of the year would still be eligible for the PTC, even if they wouldn’t come online until after the credit expired.
Corporations and wind producers promptly rushed to cash in the taxpayer’s generosity. The industry broke ground on 12,000 megawatts of new wind farms before the PTC finally expired on Dec. 31. Thanks to the credit’s 10-year payout guarantee, taxpayers still have another decade of subsidizing wind.
It would be a mistake for Congress to renew the PTC again, and it is time to let the wind industry compete with other energy industries in a fair market. Congress should ignore the hot air surrounding the PTC and let it flutter away forever.
Mr. Phillips is the president of Americans for Prosperity.
Wind Power Is Intermittent, But Subsidies Are Eternal
There is no need to extend a program that has cost U.S. taxpayers $7.3 billion over the past seven years.
By TIM PHILLIPS
‘Tax credits have been essential to the economic viability of wind farms so far, but will not be needed within a few years.” So said Christopher Flavin, now president emeritus of the Worldwatch Institute—in 1984.
Thirty years and billions of dollars later, the wind industry is still saying it needs taxpayer support. Congress is currently hearing this argument as it debates whether to extend the 22-year-old “production tax credit” in the lame-duck session. The PTC, which gives wind producers a 2.3-cent tax credit for each kilowatt-hour of electricity produced over 10 years, expired at the end of 2013. Now wind-industry lobbyists are roaming the halls of Congress, asking legislators to renew it as part of a tax-extenders package before adjourning on Dec. 15.
The industry’s arguments are bluster. Wind-power capacity has increased by nearly 5,000% since the PTC was created and the industry now makes billions of dollars in annual revenue. Meanwhile, the credit has devolved into another example of corporate welfare.
Over the past seven years, the PTC has cost taxpayers $7.3 billion, and it is expected to pay out $2.4 billion more in 2015. Combined with other subsidies and programs, wind generators received $56.29 in government subsidies per megawatt-hour in 2010, according to a 2012 report from the Institute for Energy Research. That’s compared with 64 cents in subsidies for natural gas and $3.14 for nuclear power.
The program operates as one of America’s least-known wealth-redistribution schemes, forcing taxpayers to pick up the tab for wind farms beyond their borders. In 2012 more than 30 states paid more in subsidies than wind farms in those states received in tax credits. Citizens in five states paid more than $100 million more in federal taxes than they received from the PTC: California ($196 million), New York ($163 million), Florida ($138 million), New Jersey ($126 million) and Ohio ($104 million). Eleven states paid into the PTC even though they have no qualifying wind production. The unlucky losers included Florida, Virginia and North Carolina.
Shame about Obama lifting sanctions again Iran.
Russia will not be able to pump for long without Western capital goods. Nor is Putin going to able to scare the majors into breaking sanctions so they can lose money.
The equation is economic growth / demand and time.
Note too that every Obama lie and dissembling has increased Saudi Arabia's industry disruption strategy.
The rump Congress might actually continue the abusive wind mill giveaways.
Have ISIS over run the OPEC Sunni states would be the outcome.
The logical rational response is lower the cost of American drilling by pipe infrastructure. Base gasoline standards on science rather than Progressive special interest. Corn ethanol mandate has to go for every reason.
The other is to act like adults and say thank you to the Canadians for trusting us to handle their oil exports.
Venezuela would not be a worrisome concern now had Obama not blocked the XL and other Canadian pipes.
In the medium term SA is only making the American oil/gas industry stronger. The only real enemy average Americans have is grubering Progressives blocking rational free market response to the stress.
