    Oil Games

    Like it or not the world runs on oil.

    Last month Biden released millions of barrels of oil from the Strategic Reserves for shipment to Asia. China appears to be doing the same after being asked by the U.S. to tap their reserves, along with Japan, South Korea and several other countries. The idea seems to be to lower global oil prices which have jumped dramatically over this past year.

    With so many global players it can be a complicated story to unravel, but if you step back and view the larger picture it's not complicated at all. A year ago we had fairly low gas prices and were also energy independent. That is the real story here.

    So we import oil, and send our strategic supply overseas to ease world demand pressure??

    If we want to lower demand pressure, how 'bout refining some of that stuff right here and using it here. Duh! Even a dinosaur can figure this one out. And while Biden is fixing the crisis he created, why doesn't he just undo what he did to put us in this bind. Geez. Maybe I should offer my services as Energy Secretary. I think I know about 300M Americans who could do better than this, and that includes a bunch of 3 year olds.

    To answer your questions:

    #1. Biden CAN NOT go back on his decision to reverse Trump's energy policies for accessing our own oil reserves. That would go against one of the primary aspects of the Liberal Faith: "Orange Man, BAD!!!"

    #2. Biden, and his puppeteers, want to do as much damage to the United States as they possibly can, in order to usher in their dreams of a Totalitarian, Single-Party, Government.

    The Democrat Party is THE most dangerous element within our borders. They are a far greater threat than terrorism, domestic, or foreign.....

    I wonder how many people realize this is an exact replay of the Obama policies?

    I suspect that....

    --Those on the Right, have seen it from day one of the Biden Administration. (IF not long before...)

    --Those on the Left...will never realize it. They are too closed (and simple!) minded to notice such.

    --Those in the Middle hardly notice anything unless and until it effects them PERSONALLY, and, even then, they are less concerned with the cause, only the solution....

    I read somewhere that Biden is asking the DOJ to look into high prices at the pump as possible price gouging.

    My prediction is that they will conclude gas pumps are racist.
