    Facts were introduced. Congress had officially recessed. That is the authority granted the Speaker.

    See above post.

    People may dislike congress, but they like their representative. It is why the same folks that are wholly despised keep getting re-elected.

However the Democrats have had 18 months this time around, so their apparent choice for a rebuttal to the energy policy proffered is NOT to offer their own up, just to argue against a Republican measure. Wanna bet that the Democrats will not offer up an energy plan of any sort?
    I addressed this issue on another thread. This administration has gone to great lengths to keep their energy policy secret. It's become obvious why that was done.

At any rate, the high price of oil and gas equates to a reduction in consumption, which is what these nut cases want, no matter the cost. In the end, the poor and the working class get hurt again for some idealistic hoopla that means absolutely nothing. The high cost of energy is directly responsible for the collapsing economy. Don't worry that you can't afford food, you will save the growing polar bear population.
    When he was subpoenaed to turn over the notes from the Energy Task Force, Cheney claimed "Executive Privilege" and refused. Two of the participants in those meetings are now convicted felons.

    This is the energy policy the Bush administration laid out in early part of the administration.

    Did you know that recent research shows that 20% of the worlds undiscovered oil reserves lie above the arctic circle. Although I ask the question, How do they know how much is there if it is undiscovered?
    That doesn't necessarily equate to profitability for those who extract oil. As I've stated in the past, the oil companies are demanding significant subsidies to start drilling. It could be argued the high price of gas plays into their hands as well. They continue to receive record profits while stating their inability to drill because of enviro concerns and therefore enabling the political pressure on congress to get them the subsidies they demand.

    Could you point me to one place the oil companies have been prevented from drilling? The only place that comes to mind is off the coast of Florida when they had that enviro wacko governor Jeb Bush. You can't be serious when you believe the oil lobby isn't more capable of getting its way than the Sierra Club.

    LOL, typical reply. It's all BUSH's fault!
    Wow. What a fact-filled response. You really knocked that one out of the park, didn't you? Was someone else setting policy for all those years? Surely George W. "I haven't heard anything about four dollar a gallon gas" Bush isn't to blame.
    Can the righties get any dumber??

    Recess. Sure. Shut off the microphones. Stop the objections from the floor. Silence anyone who disagrees. Ignore the people.
    The House officially adjourned, just like they always do...even when the Republicans were in control. This is nothing but election year theatrics by a bunch of whiney-*** rightwing crybabies who aren't getting their way and have decided the best way to serve the nation is to throw an embarrassing tantrum.
    They had six years to formulate something resembling an energy policy and now that there is no more snooze buttons to hit on the alarm clocks they're claiming to being stymied by the Dems.
    Exactly. They didn't do a damned thing in six years with the lights on, so now they're sitting in the dark crying on each other shoulders.
    Simply pathetic.

    http://blogs.wsj.com/environmentalca...ic-oil-gusher/
    Did you also know that Russia, Canada, and the Netherlands are already tapping into that pool of oil? Did you also know that drilling in ANWR will allow the US to use the already bought and paid for Alaska oil pipeline?

    Given the trampling of procedures that occurred during the 14 years of a GOP majority Pelosi gave them a dose of their own medicine. The reaction has been hysterical to watch.
    So she is just like they are...No there is leadership.. It just sickens me to see these legislators acting like a bunch of elementary school kids on the playground. The young lady needs to grow and stop acting like a 10 year old.

    "In fact, since the Democrats took control the price of gas has nearly doubled."
    How is that the Democrats fault? When gas jumped to the unheard of price of $3/gal I stated no one should be surprised at that occurrence with a President and VP who have direct ties to the oil industry. Yet now the Dems are to blame for $4/gal gas? This statement is ludicrous unless you have some type of proof that shows a direct connection between the two.
    I'm glad you agree, that was said somewhat tongue in cheek. Seems people forget that the current rise in fuel prices started in Bill Clinton's last 3 years as president. The trend has simply continued throughout the Bush years. During that time none of our elected officials have done anything to change it. Difference now is the Republicans have been trying to come up with solutions and do something, their opponents are just walking away. They all make me laugh. If one side says the sky is green the other will say the sky is red. In the end both are wrong and we the people take it in the shorts

    Exactly. I'm sure all those GOP congressmen have their doctors appointments made for when their faux outrage hard-ons last longer than three days.

    They had six years to formulate something resembling an energy policy and now that there is no more snooze buttons to hit on the alarm clocks they're claiming to being stymied by the Dems.

    Couldn't get any funnier if they tried.

    It's called RECESS...they do it every year, and have been for many, many years. You should check into the Legislative Reorganization Act of 1970 before calling anyone else a "mindless twit"...twit.
