House votes to drill -- where there's no oil

Yesterday, the House voted 236-189 for a bill that would open up a miniscule portion of the outer continental shelf for drilling, allow a few states along the southern eastern seaboard to allow drilling, but would give the states that allowed it no benefit -- and therefore no incentive -- to allow it.

This farce of a bill will die if we can keep the accomodationists in the Senate in line to filibuster this farce.

How can you tell it's a farce? Well, when the rabid environmentalists don't have a problem with it, you know it's not a serious bill.

When you've got 2/3 of the American public on your side, you don't cave.

*Hopefully it doesn't need to go to SCOTUS.

New talking points just dropped in WaPo -- if that's the excuse for the raid, how does the FBI also justify letting Clinton skate when she also had docs "classified at the highest classification level"? https://www.washingtonpost.com/national-security/2022/08/11/garland-trump-mar-a-lago/?tid=ss_tw

The most dramatic consequences of government intervention occurred in Sri Lanka, where a 2021 fertilizer ban led to a massive reduction in yields, sparking starvation and an economic crisis that brought down the government in July.
