Oily Business

Early warning signs that we're Crossing The Rubicon?

KIEV, Jan. 21 (Xinhuanet) -- A severe cold snap has claimed the lives of 10 people in Ukraine, with seven in eastern region of Lugansk and three in Kharkiv, the Interfax new agency reported.

Accompanied with heavy snow descending all over the country since Thursday, the temperature dropped drastically: with the lowest daytime temperature standing at minus 35 C in the north and east and minus 18 C in the comparatively warm northern region.

Under Strains of Peak Oil and Gas, Ideology Stretches to the Limit

I didn't see or hear this from any news source, but Ukraine's President Dioxin is apparently in danger of an impeachment. I will tell you the story to the best of my understanding...

Apparently the Russian government threatened to stop delivering oil to the Ukraine unless they paid their bill and Russia did not stop delivery but the Ukraine government told their people that it did leaving the people of Ukraine without adequate heat in December while the government sold their oil to other countries.

That is the story as I understand it from the person who told me. Has anyone else heard about this?

Not At All Concerned

I can't begin to tell you how many people around here are still all wrapped up in Bill Clinton's Penis, but it is a whole lot more than the Billings Gazette quick poll shows giving a ghost's gosh darn about Senator Burn's participation in Jack Abramoff's Senators for sale scheme.

How concerned are you about Senator Burns' relationship with indicted D.C. lobbyist Jack Abramoff?

2223 Dead American Soldiers to create a theocratic state where Iraqis are unable to access their own national treasure (oil)in Iraq.

The flip side of the Iraq blood an money pit is that the United States is still underfunding the needs of our own injured soldiers and their families despite the oodles and boodles and canoodles of cash and debt that that has been spent and misplaced under the Republican leadership of everything leaving injured soldiers and their families at the mercy of non profits who must beg and grovel for donations along with victims of Katrina, Rita, Wilma, Wildfires, mudslides, grassfires... Hawaii will soon be temporarily (ya right) without the Medevac flights they depend on to respond to their worst accidents and disasters because the Iraq demands more sacrifice.

How proud can Americans possibly be of this desperate situation while they allow some self appointed high holies to unilaterally dismantle the remnants of our over extended National Guard

Even the GOP plan for reform leaves huge holes for corruption.

Reid is simply educating the public, which is needed, because the soul of our country is in danger from corruption.

I'm Back

Hi everybody, I missed you while I was gone and I will have more to say after I get unpacked and caught up on the news that the religious right didn't pipe in through my car radio.
