Posted at 8:53pm on Jun. 3, 2008 Use CO2 for Recovering Oil without Taxpayer Money
Couldn't help but notice the attention that sequestering CO2 in the name of preserving the planet. There's a 2005 study done by Richards and Stavins on Forest sequestration. This last weekend,while browsing through a column in the NYT, there was a column on the problems that trying to achieve a sequestration program is running into due to the high costs.
Remember all the oil wells that went abandoned in the USA years ago? An efficient way to recover oil from these wells is to use the CO2 from a natural CO2 well that Denbury resources has rights to. They are busy purchasing many of these old wells at a discount and will break even with $60/ barrel oil.

Posted at 3:28pm on May 23, 2008 Yes Oil Is Going Up More Until . . .????
There's a great institutional research blog that says that there is plenty of room for oil to go up and that the price rises will continue so much so that the Fed will be forced to act.
I recently purchased a basic financial market manual by John J Murphy, who on one page showed that a weak US dollar coincides with strong commodities prices.
This week is a case in point. Oil and the Euro rose, a 95% relationship BTW, on Wednesday and today. Every time there is a housing report, like today, showing less real estate was purchased, a sign of a weakening economy, the Euro rises as well as the price of oil. Its become a negative feedback loop. > Bad US economice reports>rise in Euro>weak US dollar, higher crude prices>weaker US consumer spending> US weaker economy. Needless to say, if you go to the stockcharts website you can see for yourself that commodities, see the CRB index of charts there, really took off in Feb 2007 when the subprime news first broke. It was a sure bet against the USD due to the implications for a weaker economy.

Posted at 8:14am on May 14, 2008 End the corn subsidies?
Recently a Contract with America brainstorming blog posted with the idea that the corn subsidies should end. Sen Hutchinson proposes the idea of freezing current ethanol production, so that progress toward the total current corn crop being produced by 2022 doesn't progress any further for the time being to assess the move towards the subsidized fuel.
Of course a problem with the above cold turkey government cutoff is that Billions have already been spent on the ethanol refining capability.

Posted at 3:22pm on May 11, 2008 What would a Contract with America Look (2008) Like?
I've received fundraising requests from the RNCC and Mitch McConnell's office. McConnell is specifically being targeted by MoveOn.org. I'm a Mitch McConnell fan. What was extraordinary was that both appeal letters appeared with only solicitations without any agenda of what they would pursue. Their role has been spoiler of the radical left agenda, I'll give them some credit.
People are starved for Conservative leadership.

Posted at 11:10pm on Mar. 21, 2008 The Black Value System and Hamas' Editorial on Wright's Bulletin
I don't even know what a Hamas editorial on the Pastor Wright's church bulletin would have to do with the black value system. So buckle up and I might be able to provide a lead to further understanding this idea and the Hamas connection.
The World Net Daily article exposes the main adviser behind Obama's ideas for dialogue with Hamas as Robert Malley.

Posted at 10:26pm on Mar. 7, 2008 Hope for FARC Obama Style, Reyes connection to Obama?
Obama is the left's anti war candidate. He's got the courage to talk to any American enemy to show them where we stand. Is there any cause for which he would do the "right" thing?
Recently, Colombian troops raided a FARC base in Ecuador and came back with a computer showing evidence that Hugo Chavez was indeed behind funding the Marxist rebels named FARC, that regularly raided Colombian land.

Posted at 10:11pm on Feb. 9, 2008 DeMint on the Stimulus Package
ht to Hotair.
Well said commentary on the bill. No sign of leadership from the predestined one on this yet?
Or what about drilling in Alaska? The Republican leading the delegate count is more concerned about global warming than building our own supplies. What about repealing the $.18 fuel tax?

Posted at 6:11pm on Jan. 27, 2008 Pelosi a Supply Sider? Yes, Tax Cuts Do Pay for Themselves
When the announcement for a request for a stimulus package was made, it in effect requested a package that would be significant, enacted soon and temporary due to the pending increased entitlement spending that is needed soon. My theory is that the stock market sold off enough to coincide with the end of supply side guidance that has been in effect since President Reagan http://stockcharts.com/commentary/archives/cww20080120m.html

Posted at 10:18pm on Dec. 8, 2007 Whatever happened to Duncan Hunter?
So far I have been uncommitted in the race for the Republican nomination for president. Until I read more widely campaign web sites, so on a first look impression I submit the following.
So after perusing many of the web sites, Duncan Hunter is my top choice for president because he is an ex Ranger, and has taken part in writing the law to establish the fence on the southern border.
I found his campaign web site to be the most detailed out of any of the candidates, including Romney, Giuliani, Thompson and Huckabee.

Posted at 11:38pm on Sep. 19, 2007 Cheney's Rebuttal to Greenspan--& Tax Receipts higher due to Tax Breaks
H/T to RealClearPolitics at http://www.opinionjournal.com/extra/?id=110010624
Good perspective offered on the Bush years in regards to spending, taxes, the military and national security. A 2000 lunch between Greenspan, Bush and Cheney involved a discussion of a possible recession due to the breakdown in the dot com industry. This started prior to the 9/11 attacks and subsequent 1 million job losses.
