This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

Tell the MMS to Increase Off Shore Oil Exploration & Production

The U.S. Minerals Management Service (MMS) has developed a new five year (2010-2015) plan for sales of off shore oil & gas leases. The plan is in the form of a 3.7MB pdf file.

The DPP proposes a total of 31 OCS lease sales in 12 areas (4 areas off Alaska, 3 areas off the
Atlantic coast, 2 areas off the Pacific coast, and 3 areas in the Gulf of Mexico). Maps A and
B show the areas proposed for leasing (proposed program areas). Table A lists the location
and timing of the proposed lease sales. Of the 31 sales, 10 sales are in 6 areas that were
formerly under executive and/or congressional restrictions.

Of course, President Obama does not agree with his predecessor's policy on off shore leasing. The LibTards who support him are producing increasing opposition to the draft proposal. The time frame for public comment on the plan has been extended 180 days to September 21, 2009. The extension should afford you ample time to review the plan and send in your comments before the deadline.

Everything we purchase involves petroleum in its transportation, if not as a feed stock and source of energy used in its production. The imbalance between demand and supply has caused painful inflation, which will take a bigger bite as incomes are reduced or eliminated by the economic depression.

If you want to keep your house warm and your automobile on the road, you should want to see significant increases in domestic oil and gas production. Our hope for the next five years is in the new plan. New off shore leases will be limited to those included in the final plan.

If you want to see reduced inflation and preserve your ability to keep warm and mobile, then you should express your support for the proposed five year leasing plan. The Consumer Energy Alliance provides an easy to use email form so that you can send your comments to the MMS.

Please don't stop there; visit http://www.congress.org to send emails to President Obama, your Representative & Senators urging them to approve the plan.
