(According to BLM 2011)
Type "true" if you believe the statement is true

Are you a paid shill for the Democratic party who is here just to throw out this stuff incessantly, or are you paid by a competitor of Mortgage Grapevine to muck the page up so bad that nobody wants to read it anymore?

Please follow the directions.
True or false.

When I was in college I had a professor that used each quiz as a learning tool. Very effective!
Once you can learn the facts you can than stop wasting time on nonsense. Like: "It's Obama's fault that gas prices are high."
You can turn (or return as the case may be) to more lofty matters, like: "Obama was born in Kenya" or "Rev Wright is the biological father of Barrack Obama"

So we can mark you down for "Fracking, full speed ahead"?
Investing money in a failing company and firing thousands to make it profitable, Increasing domestic oil production, keeping uncharged prisoners in detention, killing a US citizen without a trial, taking military action against Libya, continuing tax cuts for the wealthy, and now this.
You are quite the little closet conservative....Get a job that actually produces something and creates jobs and you can come all the way out.

I am curious to know why TF/Ancho thinks the price of natural gas has anything to do with the price of gasoline at the pump.
by Vinnie The Leg Breaker February 23, 2012 12:21 PM
That would be false according to the source below.
Obama Claim: 2010 natural gas production reached its highest level in more than 30 years.
Reality: Yes natural gas production is up, but this is because of production on private and state lands because production on federal lands is decreasing. 
Also I did a search for "natural gas production on federal land" and found other multiple sources which indicated that oil & gas production on federal land was down by 40%.
If you have another source Ancho I'm happy to look at it.
While you are at it would like to clarify if you are a hypocrite or not?
You seem to be posting with pride the fact that you believe Barry has increased production of something most liberals are against. So are you against the the liberal green agenda or do you disagree with Barry increasing exploration and production of fossil fuels?

ConservativeMe: Correct me if I'm wrong (and I might be because I'm too lazy to look)
Don't most of your propaganda outlets combine oil AND gas production? So they say something like "oil and gas production is down x% on federal lands?"
And federal lands?
What percent of oil leases on federal lands remain undeveloped?
This "federal lands" qualifier would have some merit if all available permits were already being used. They aren't.

If this all boils down to the cost at the pump, or natural gas in your furnace, isn't the real question refinery capacity.
I believe the last time gas at the pump was this expensive, Oil was selling for about $120/barrel.
I don't really blame Barry for the cost at the pump, but what the hell, you make everything political. Why did we have cheaper gas at the pump when the cost of oil/barrel was more under Bush than we do with Barry with the cost of oil/barrel being less?
Since a lot of the price increase is speculation, maybe this administration could simply make a pro oil comment or two and it would drive down the cost. Maybe they could actually incent a company to build a refinery....No that would piss off the far left more than free condoms piss off the far right.

Do your own search. Did you look at the source? They don't appear to be a propaganda outlet. There were others if you prefer them.
I said if you have a source that shows otherwise I'd be happy to look at it. I see you didn't post one. If you have different information please share it.
If you even bothered to look at the source you would see they separate oil & gas. They specifically show that "natural gas production" has decreased on federal lands.
Also you never answered this:

The Kochs would never allow that to happen.
by Unfair and Imbalanced February 23, 2012 3:34 PM
And the Kochs would never allow Obama to get elected either.

"You seem to be posting with pride the fact that you believe Barry has increased production of something most liberals are against."
No. Just obliterating yet another idiotic conservative talking point. This time about how it's Obama's fault that gas prices are high.
If you would actually pay attention to my posts you would find I don't defend Obama per se.
Rather, I merely destroy the conservative talking points. It's actually pretty easy.
But it's like whack a mole with you morons.
Tomorrow there will be another Romney lie or "birth certificate"-like issue created by conservatives. And 4 weeks from now the deep thinkers will be back here (and elsewhere) claiming "Barry" is responsible for the high gas prices. Or that his single minded goal is to destroy America. Who knows what kind of idiocy will bubble up from your well of lunacy. But we do know it will be something.
Can't discuss issues when folks like you operate in an alternate reality.
Look how hard it is to get some of you to except basic FACTS about gas prices. Then think about the other issues where your reality conflicts with basic facts. You START with death panels and move out into the great unknown mental asylum from there. How can you have a discussion about anything when 1/3 of the population refuses to allow facts to help form their opinions? Remember? Fox makes you stoopidur! Not smarter.
And look how long it took for a very small minority of conservatives to accept the fact that reducing taxes doesn't raise revenues. It took a fucking near depression and historic deficits before they grudgingly gave up the talking point.

That's it, duck & dodge. You are everywhere but on your initial posted question.
You asked a question about natural gas production. Now you are talking about proving how it isn't Obama's fault that gas prices are high. Please explain how the hell natural gas production has anything to do with the price of gas at the pump?
I guess seeing as how you haven't attempted to dispute the facts I based my answer of "false" on that you are admitting your initial assertion was wrong. If you have facts to show natural gas production is up I would be happy to look at it. You asked a good question. One I found interesting and didn't know the answer to. My quick research showed it is down. If there is additional information I'd be interested.
Please, all you do is defend Obama. It's your job, we get that.
Back to the other point. You stil didn't share your personal feelings on the topic. Are you in favor of increased fossil fuel production?
