As we’ve told you in these pages before, we expect the U.S. to recover around another 300 billion barrels of oil in the years ahead. That’s more oil than the U.S. has produced in the history of the oil industry AND all the oil reserves we have today.

To keep up with the massive amount of oil and gas we’ll produce in the years ahead, U.S. energy infrastructure will require a massive buildout.

Suggesting ways to profit from the coming domestic oil boom. In a few years, the US may soon be producing 44% more oil than Saudi Arabia’s current production levels, according to the keynote speaker at the 2014 US Energy Information Administration’s Energy Conference. 

Susanna Hoffs - Stuck in the Middle With You

The Stealer’s Wheel classic from the 70’s re-interpreted.

In 1776… [James] Madison fought to amend the Virginia Declaration of Rights, from guaranteeing ‘fullest toleration’ of religion to ‘free exercise.’ Madison’s change of wording grounded religious liberty in nature, not the permission of the state. Toleration is a gift; truly free men exercise their rights. The Virginia Declaration of Rights was a statement of principles; Madison’s principle of ‘free exercise’ was not enacted into law until the Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, written by Jefferson, was passed ten years later. Jefferson was so proud of this law that he mentioned it on his tombstone. But it was Madison who pushed Jefferson’s law through the Virginia Assembly. ‘I flatter myself,’ Madison wrote Jefferson after he had succeeded, that ‘[we have] extinguished forever the ambitious hope of making laws for the human mind.’
Richard Brookhiser, from his biography James Madison (2011)

40% approval rate, Mr. President. Based on the results so far, I’d say you’re better off just golfing.

Ummm…..this American does. I know that it seems that all he does is party and play golf, but unfortunately, it’s not. America would be much better off if that were true.

President Barack Obama during a press conference at the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit on Wednesday defended his use of executive power as a means to bypass gridlock in Congress.

"The American people don’t want me just standing around twiddling my thumbs and waiting for Congress to get something done," Obama said.

The president repeatedly indicated he would prefer to work with Congress to find legislative solutions on a slew of issues including funding for federal infrastructure projects and the border crisis. However, in the face of what he described as “dysfunction” in Congress, Obama said he would “scour our authority to try to make progress” within the bounds of the law.

"I’m going to seize those opportunities, and that’s what I think the American people expect me to do," Obama said.

Officials representing over 100 corporate interests issued a letter to Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) demanding the legalization of 11 million illegal aliens and increased legal immigration through the creation of new visa programs.”
