Drilling=Jobs? Seriously?Selling drugs and legalizing prostitution = jobs too. Not against drilling, but the focus should be to look at alternative energy sources. No one knows the effects of fracking. Till we know for sure, I wouldn't jump into it.
I hear Solynrda has a nice alternative energy plant for sale if anyone is interested. Only cost the taxpayers a cool 500M.
It is sad that there are so many economic planners in power. It's like nothing was learned from the the break up of the Soviet Union and the history of so much of the world living in the dark ages because people are afraid of free markets.
