    Reid to Renew Oil Shale Ban, Deny Americans Vast Energy Resources During Economic Crisis

    We've just been alerted that despite House Democrats relenting on extending bans on offshore drilling and oil shale in the continuing resolution (CR) appropriations bill, Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid has decided to sneak an extension of the oil shale ban through as Congress fights over the financial bailout. Oil shale in America's West is estimated to hold be between 800 billion and 2 trillion barrels of oil -- that is more than three times the proven oil reserves in Saudi Arabia alone.

    Here is the text of Reid's proposed new ban on oil shale, that he is trying to add as an amendment to the CR or move seperately as a "stimulus" package, or we should say an anti-stimulus package if this is included.
    Sec 1602 continues ban on oil shale. The language follows:

    SEC. 1602. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, including section 152 of division A of H.R. 2638 (110th Congress), the Consolidated Security, Disaster Assistance, and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2009, the terms and conditions contained in section 433 of division F of Public Law 110–161 shall remain in effect for the 19 fiscal year ending September 30, 2009.
    It would be an insult to all Americans if Senate Democrats worked to bailout Wall Street while damaging our future prosperity by banning development of vast energy reserves in oil shale.

    It is WAY past time to get Reid, and his partner in slime Pelosi out of office.

    Both of them are a disgrace to our country.

    If Obama gets elected, our country is going to absolutely go down the crapper with the 3 of them running things.

    I do have an idea though that would work. France apparently loves them. France loves socialism. They love socialism....Seems like a match made in heaven to me. Send all three of them there, I'll even volunteer to pay the airfare.
