The U.S. is only one of several countries that drill for oil in the Gulf of Mexico. Either directly or under license Spain, Norway, India, Malaysia, Venezuela, Vietnam, Mexico and Brazil all benefit from that resource. Now, all the others will enjoy reaping the profits while the U.S. becomes even more reliant on foreign oil. Even China and Russia will soon be drilling for oil off the Florida Keys under license from Cuba. As the Washington Times said on 3/18/2010, "Russia is projecting power in the Western Hemisphere while the U.S. retreats". As a sidebar, many of The President's financial backers since the start of his career have been Middle-Easterners who have ties to banks and petroleum operations. Seems like while the U.S. is being limited, they are still making millions. Could this be another "unscheduled" step in the "peaceful" Islamic plan to gain control of the U.S.? Under the present administration, the U.S. has diluted its military strength through reductions in forces, postponement of advanced research and cancellation of several 21st Century Warfare programs; increased the National Debt to ridiculous levels; given the space program to Russia along with billions of dollars; ignored the increasing numbers of illegal aliens (excuse me: unodcumented aliens"); attempted to cancle many state's rights issues; and ignore many Constitutional Issues.
What the hell huh. Nobody in the Whitehouse - Republican or Democrat alike seems to give a damn about America.
That's why they sold American land to a Spanish Company to build a road extending from Mexico to Canada. A TOLL road.
And they are also BOTH handing over land to UN control.
I am going to do serious research on the President's backers for obvious reasons. Corporate Greed continues to reap havoc across our land and the middle class is shrinking faster than the marshes in the Gulf. But I believe we need to keep level headed and not believe everything we read unless it is substantially researched. So I withhold my comment til a later date. Also, I really believe that we need to remove everyone in the senate and the house of representatives that are reaping the benefits from corporate affiliations in any way . We need jobs for every able bodied american who is willing to work and we need these yesterday. We need a government that has our back the working classes back as their primary goal. There are huge pharmacuetical companies who sell their outrageously priced drugs to Americans, then bank their profits overseas and avoid paying any taxes to increase corporate profitablity. Our congressmen work hard to help these corporations do this , some dedicate their entire careers. We have to wake up and demand change or watch as more millionaires and billionaires take over our economy and run the middle class into poverty from outside the United States. More later - Great topic!
I never said that! But when a huge pharmaceutical company gets away with selling overpriced drugs in our country and then has the guts to never pay a dime back. There is something wrong. Do you believe it's OK for these giants to bank their profits overseas? Many orphan drugs in this country are never produced because the corporation can not make a big enough profit from the few desperate people that may struggle to be kept alive by this medicine. The corporation does not care about people - it is only about the bottom line.
