God love ‘em, those Okies, for doing what they should. As a fellow Okie, I am proud of these oil producers and drillers gathering in Cushing, OK (Payne County) to protest the president’s visit. They know how he feels about them, and say what you will about Democrat support….Oklahoma’s Democrats are some of the most conservative in the nation. It’s because they use common sense. From KFOR-TV:
Sarah was on FBN’s “America’s Nightly Scoreboard” with David Asman tonight, and she knocked it out of the park on MANY fronts! She clearly is honing her bona fides on national issues, and she obviously demonstrates a deep understanding of the oil & gas industry. This woman is no shrinking violet, and the more she speaks, the more my confidence in her grows.
And for all of you out there with PDS, save your comments and baseless attacks for someone who cares; Lord knows I don’t. If you can’t refute her on policy or current national issues and only resort to personal attacks, you only reveal yourself as the fool you are.
I think this was one of the longest “Scoreboard” segments they’ve ever had. Love, love, LOVE David Asman! He’s turning out to be a low-key Beck for FBN. Heck, Andrew Breitbart is darn-near a daily guest, and Asman is a vocal PROPONENT of the tea partiers and vocal OPPONENT of government spending.
Okay, so this is a re-post from April of 2006, but it could not be more relevant nor time sensitive, given the fact that the democrats are all saying “not in my backyard!” about drilling for our own natural resources. Bravo for President Bush today for putting the call out for more exploration in our own country – a call long overdue.
I have seen very few sites that have stated the case for ANWR more than the ANWR homepage itself. But, they have a new slick, very informative and compelling flashmovie, Narrated by a Native Inupiat Eskimo from that area. His name is Fenton Rexford, from Kaktovik, Alaska. I truly can’t improve on the website’s content, so I’m just going to share some of it with you here. I do urge you, however, to visit the site and look around.
Here’s a bit about the local support:
Organizations representing the residents of the Coastal Plain and surrounding area such as the City of Kaktovic, Kaktovik Inupiat Corporation, North Slope Borough, Arctic Slope Regional Corp., Doyon Regional Corporation and Alaskan Federation of Natives have all endorsed development based on their experience with Prudhoe Bay.
