The Lord Will Be a Stronghold

"May the Lord answer you in the day of trouble! May the name of the God of Jacob set you securely on high! May he send you help from the sanctuary, and support you from Zion." - Psalms 20:1-2 (NAS)

"The Lord will be a stronghold for the oppressed, A stronghold in times of trouble, and those who know Thy name will put their trust in Thee; For
Thou, O Lord, hast not forsaken those who seek Thee."
- Psalms 9:9-10 (NAS)

No 'Offshore Oil Drilling'? Administration up to Something

                                        

Quiet words from Interior Secretary Ken Salazar on 3/5, directly indicated a new three-year ban, at least in offshore oil drilling leases. Pure facts dictate this move will kill any American initiative to produce all of its oil independently. More than 2/3 of the American public supports such a move per a Rasmussen poll. It is unknown why the Obama Administration would make such a virulent move, and not allow America to become more oil-independent in a time of major global political upheaval.

President Bush had two bans rescinded in 2008 in The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) which would have allowed drilling. But Salazar plans to eliminate the entire 2010-2015 Bush lease plan. No alternate plan is on paper yet. Evidently, Obama has no intention of opening up new areas for offshore drilling during his tenure in office. So in realty, huge amounts of assets in domestic energy will be wasted, while billions of additional dollars are spent on foreign oil.
