Sarah's Oil/Vote For Local Shelters

Defending Sarah and Her Oil

By J. J. Ray

Today has been a real record breaker with folks wanting me to defend Sarah Palin. I gave it some serious thought and decided to have a look. Here we have a woman from a small town in Alaska who was elected mayor. Because she did such an outstanding job, she was elected governor and then became a candidate for Vice-president in the '08 campaign. She moved from a salary of $125,000.00 per year to a little less than 20 million two years later. This woman is anything but stupid, as those who make a lot less money would have us believe. In fact, most of them are unknown on the national stage. My only regret is that I am not as dumb as she is.

I do not know how many readers watched her on the Fox Network show with Greta but they went to ANWAR and filmed it. We were told the area was pristine land with mountains and wild game everywhere where the drilling was to be done... What a lie. The area is just flat tundra, which is frozen most of the year, with little to no game. Can anyone say liar, liar pants on fire to those liberals for that big one?

As to the oil there, a report by the U.S. Geological Survey estimated that there was between 5.7 billion barrels and 16.0 billion barrels of technically recoverable oil in the designated 1002 area, and that most of the oil would be found west of the Marsh Creek anticline. That’s a lot of oil.

The reserved area in Alaska where ANWAR is located is One Million Nine Hundred Thousand acres. Do you know how large the entire drilling area including all compound buildings, the drilling rig, support buildings, vehicle/equipment storage areas, living quarters and all items necessary to get the oil out of the ground would be? If you don't know feel free to estimate. “6 acres”, about the size of the Walmart in Florence.

Do not news channels like CBS, CNN, ABC & NBC along with the Democrat party make it seem like the entire state of Alaska and all forms of life, as we know it will be tainted forever if drilling in ANWAR were permitted.

Liberal spin--nothing like it. What was that comment used in the movie Forrest Gump “Stupid is as stupid does.” Who then are the stupid ones?

Americans are now paying other countries some $1.15 billion per day for continued dependence upon foreign oil. That is 482 billion dollars per year at current prices. The plan is to stop all coal usage also.

Now that makes perfect sense doesn’t it? I guess she is right about our energy problem. Perhaps that is why those wily liberals fear her. Stupid she is not. Perhaps Cherokee could entice her to come visit. That would make some great news. Hey, people over there in Cherokee land I have her address if you would like to write.

We've received several photos of private homes that are undoubtedly eyesores. We may in future publish these snapshots, assuming we can verify the street addresses. At present, we are limiting our "Eyesore Awards" to local businesses. Today we're adding Bama Signs in Russellville.
