$2.84 Billion For Colombian Refinery?

Posted April 19th, 2011 by Iron Mike

Pain at the pump?
Food prices going up?

Budget a little tighter?

Not to worry, your Obama Government has enough extra to loan Reficar – a Colombian national oil company – $2,840,000,000.oo of your tax dollars to build a new refinery in Cartagena, Colombia.

We have only 148 US refineries, some small. Our last major refinery was built in 1977.

One KEY reason that gas, home heating oil, and jet fuel costs so much here is the very limited and aging US refinery capacity.

The Green Goons have had their way for over 30 years – blocking new refinery construction with endless legal and environmental challenges.  Obama and his Interior Weasel Ken Salazar are TOTALLY on the side of the goons.

WHY?  Salazar is a Green Goon himself.  Even Bill Clinton can’t understand him.  Federal Judge Martin Feldman is holding Salazar in contempt for holding up drilling permits.

Obama simply sees oil as a way to spread your $$$ to the Third World, by halting drilling on our own land and in our own waters, – and by sending your tax $$ to Brazil and Columbia to build their industries. 

Remember that $20 Billion Obama sent to Petrobras for offshore drilling in Brazil?  Remember that little $2 Billion that Soros also invested in Brazil?

Too bad Soros/Obama couldn’t invest in our country.  But then again, we know that both of them hate our country.  Remember what Obama told the Brazilians when he was on vacation there last month?

“By some estimates, the oil you recently discovered off the shores of Brazil could amount to twice the reserves we have in the United States.  We want to work with you.  We want to help with technology and support to develop these oil reserves safely, and when you’re ready to start selling, we want to be one of your best customers.” 


Bottom line folks:  Your pResident and his willing buddies are manipulating events, permits, and federal money to deliberately create shortages and drive up prices

Some like Soros want increased profits, but most – including Soros and Obama – want your wealth spread to the third world – and screw you – you damned selfish resource-hogging Americans!

Do what I do – every time I buy gas I remark to the person at the next pump – “Gee, I’m sure glad Obama halted drilling our own oil in our own gulf waters!” 

NOTE: Prices are stated in CURRENT $$ value

OK, so why are food prices rising?  Because agriculture, food processing, packaging, and distribution are all fuel-intensive industries.  And, because more and more corn [now 27%] is being grown for ethanol.

You are being forced into third world status by your pResident, his world-socialist goons, his green goons, and his ‘the UN should rule’ goons.  Yeah, you got “Change”!

    The only refineries that are being built in the USA are to produce ethanol which has caused a significant increase in the price of corn around the world. Ethanol, a favorite of the environmental whackos, does not improve performance or efficiency, but has an adverse effect on the fuel systems of all internal cumbustion engines. This “alternative” is highly subsidized much like wind and solar also favorites of the pResident and his leftist base.
