A Small Step to Energy Independence

The Democrats in Congress have their backs to the wall. Due to the high price of gasoline in America, and the strain it has had on the consumer, people are pushing for off-shore drilling of oil. For the past thirty years the Democrats have fought against it, but now they are giving in.

Personally I think this is a good step for them to take. I also think that if the Americans do produce more of their own oil and stop depending on Saudia Arabia for it, it will help bring peace to my little corner of the world.

It is no secret that American Presidents, and more significantly, those in the State Department, push Israel for concessions to the Palestinians. This is not because they love the Palestinians, or because they necessarily think it is right to do so, but because they are under pressure from the Arab world to do so.

Take away the dependence on Arab oil, and things will look very different.

    Even better would be a synthetic substitute for oil–hello, Technion?
