      Please tell me how much oil we have at our disposal to harvest and how long would it last ?

      Many thanks,

      I am suspicious of Iran being involved in all these Muslim uprisings, only they stand to gain from this chaos. Shouldn't we look at them a little closer? I believe that an Islamic Empire is in the works, what do you think?

      Curt, we have 100 years of Oil in the ground here in America. I think it is Junk Science to classify Petroleum as "Fossel Fuel!" Oil is perpetually coming up from the Mantle! Look at all that Methane in our Solar System! We are never going to run out of oil!

      You might have thought we were preserving our Strategic Reserve in the ground, not drilling for our own oil. Use up the dumb third world Oil and save ours for later. But Oil isn't a Fossel Fuel! The bottom line is we have wasted Trillions on this Big Junk Science, defending the Middle East. We have no good reason to bleed America, sending our Capital to build big cities for the Chinese and OPEC. Trump is right! But he never said why. Libya is BPs new drilling place! That's why we are in the new Quagmire with no American Vital National Interest! It is a payoff for BP causing the Gulf Oil Spill!

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
