Try using your head

 

Dear Editor,

Do liberals ever think about what will take place in the future? Environmentalist want to stop the pipeline from Canada.

Do they think that the oil won’t be used by someone on this planet? The Canadians are going to sell their oil.

Would it be better for the oil to go to a country that doesn’t have the environmental regulations that this country has? Why not avail ourselves of the jobs and economic benefits that it will provide.

You hear that oil is a worldwide commodity, and it will have no effect on the price of gasoline and diesel.

I find that hard to believe, the greater the supply of a commodity the cheaper that it is. Case in point, in 2005 natural gas was trading in the neighborhood of $14 per Mbtu, now it is trading around $3.25 per Mbtu. What made the difference, the abundant supply has made the difference. If we had an over abundance of oil , why would it not have the same effect on the price of gasoline? Does it concern you that the majority of protesters, never had a real job?

The people making the most noise are the Hollywood crowd. They make their living pretending. Apparently they have no clue what the high price of energy will do to the working folks that pay to watch their make believe. The intelligent folks will take care of their families first, then go see a movie. When all income is spent on energy, to heat and cool homes, and on fuel to get to work, the pretenders will have to get a real job.

Instead of wasting millions and billions of dollars of tax payer money to bail out those who raised campaign funds for the President, why not apply it to the national debt. The gas and oil industry provides high paying jobs and would put a tremendous amount of money in the federal treasury. But no we can’t do that, we must waste money to control the climate, which is a big hoax, designed to bankrupt America.

  • Letters to the Editor: Showing respect

    Dear Editor, My sister Robbie Benton’s funeral was Friday afternoon at White’s Funeral Home. The gravesite was outside of Mineral Wells. The respect shown by the good folks of Parker County and the surrounding area was overwhelming. I would say at least 90 percent of drivers pulled over in respect of the loss of life.

  • Letters to the Editor: Protecting Medicare Advantage

    As one of over 14 million Americans who rely on a Medicare Advantage policy for my medical needs, I know it is crucial for Washington to protect the Advantage program’s budget. The Affordable Care Act already slashed $200 billion from the program. It would be a mistake to dismantle a program that produces better healthcare results than regular Medicare, while often costing seniors much less in the process.

  • Letters To The Editor: Kelly response

    In a recent column, William Kelly stated his opposition to abortion and asked the question, “What do you think?” Well, I think we should all publically express our gratitude to CVS for their announced plan to stop selling tobacco products.

  • Letters To The Editor: Entitlement mentality

    Traffic law violations seem to be changing. During the 25 years I spent driving in Parker and Tarrant counties, it was usually the young men and women in small sporty cars that ran the red lights, stop and yield signs and regularly grossly exceeded the posted speed limits.

  • Letters to the Editor: Stop the bailout

    Dear Editor, The administration and congress knew that ObamaCare would fail but have had a plan all along to bail out the private insurance companies that supported the law with taxpayer money. Of course, this plan was kept hidden from American citizens that are already burdened by taxes. Congress should do everything it can to stop this disastrous bill.
