Every once in a while I switch the TV channel from Fox to CNBC to see what the liberals are saying.  After listening awhile I get a deep sense of hopelessness and foreboding for our country.  The most important thing for the left is giving money to people.  They are happy to see the growth of food stamps, disability payments, housing subsidies, free healthcare and all the other welfare benefits.  They utterly fail to see the damage it is doing to the recipients.  Whole cities that once flourished have deteriorated into rotting eyesores populated with shambling hulks of chemically dependent drones.  These people are no longer employable.  They have become incompetent and helpless and the liberals can’t see that it’s their doing.

God has given us a great blessing.  We have been very worried about the future of America’s energy, especially oil and gas.  We have become very dependent on countries in the Middle East that aren’t exactly our friends, such as Iran.

We have been given a great gift with the discovery of the Bakken oil field in North Dakota and Southern Canada.  The Bakken field can be tapped by the process of breaking up the shale and taking the gas and oil out of the ground.

North Dakota is the one place in the country where jobs are plentiful.  Thousands are flocking there to make a good living.

The Bakken fields are so extensive and the shale fields have reached the point that within about five years there will be enough oil that we will no longer be dependent upon the hostile states of Middle East.  The real problem is that Obama wants to please the environmentalists who don’t want us to produce oil.

There will be enough energy there to meet our needs for several centuries.  A lot of it is natural gas which is environmentally sound because it doesn’t contribute to the alleged global warming.

If you go into North Dakota, despite the bitter winters they experience, you will see oil rigs springing up all over the place.  Local people are making a lot of money leasing their lands for rigs to drill for oil. This is only the beginning because there are similar shale oils throughout the mountain west, including Utah.

Consider it a gift from the Lord, as we become able to have sufficient energy for our needs.  The silly environmentalists want to block this because of their concerns for the mythical global warming.  There is nothing in the future of global warming that can’t be dealt with by modern technology.  The natural gas in the shale oil fields contributes very little to the problem of global warming, and they could meet our energy needs for centuries to come.

So Merry Christmas, Deal Lord, we are grateful!
