And Now For the Good News: Oil Drops Below $90 per BBL


Oil briefly dropped below $90.00 today.

“Oil prices briefly fell to an eight-month low below $90 a barrel Monday on speculation that the spreading financial crisis will exacerbate a global economic slowdown and cut demand for crude oil.

Significant gains by the U.S. dollar against the euro also contributed to slumping oil prices.”

So, it’s a twofer: Oil drops and the dollar rises.

Why is the Euro so fucked, anyway?

200 Billion Barrels of Oil on the Wall…


BwAAAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAAHAAAAHAAAAHAAAAaaaa!!!!

All I have to say is, Fuck the Saudis, OPEC, and Hugo “Mongoloid” Chavez.

This would increase the known oil reserves in the US by ten times! It’s the biggest oil news since oil was discovered in Saudi Arabia, in fact. Note that we’ve known that oil was there since 1951, but low oil prices and old drilling tech made it unfeasible to recover, or even determine the true extent of it.

Now, who’s going to be the first libtard to scream that we can’t drill there?

2008: Year of the Moonbat?


South Australian Premier Mike Rann has called for David Hicks to apologize for his Taliban training and terrorist sympathies. In response, here are some words of wisdom from a commenter at abc.net

Hicks never trained with al-Qaeda, there was no al-Qaeda until 9/11.The term al-Qaeda was thought up by the CIA, who has subsequently admitted doing so. The falsehood was started in January 2001 by Jamal al Fadl, a Sudanese who had been with Bin Laden in the early 1990s. Jamal al Fadl stole money from Bin Laden, and then sought protection in the USA. The FBI and CIA paid him hundreds of thousands of dollars to create the al-Qaeda fiction. In fact, al Fadl invented the name al-Qaeda.Osama Bin Laden never used the term al-Qaeda until after 9/11, when he realized that al-Qaeda was the term the Americans had invented for him.

This is all about oil, a consortium represented by George W Bush’s father met with the Taliban to discuss the construction of a pipeline through Afghanistan to convey oil from Azerbaijan to a port in Pakistan, where it was to be tankered directly to the US. This consortium’s proposal was rejected by the Taliban, who gave the rights to the pipeline to Brazil. Thus the Taliban became the world’s enemy #1 according to the US.

If the Taliban had agreed to Bush snr’s proposal Hicks would have been a friend of the US, not an enemy. The invasion of Afghanistan and later Iraq would never have happened, and life as we know it would not have changed in any way.
