Kosich WON Flight A pursuant to standard USGA tie-breaker system and collected the WINNERS PRIZE.
Howard, I would hope that you were less sloppy in your reporting
Sorry, here's the link.
I share your dislike for the landslide of money into politics, especialyl into PAC's where contributions can't be traced because of shell companies. Nonetheless, we need additional supply supply in order to become energy independent. Energy independence will keep us from having to dabble in Mideast politics.
I'll attach a link to this post which shows spot prices, Henry Hub, where most natural gas prices are set for consumers. You'll note that prices spiked at approximately $13.25/MCF (June, 2008). Prices have dropped drastically since then to $2.39/MCF. You'll also note that the drop in natural gas prices corresponds to the ongoing economic crisis and by extension, falling demand in a poor economic climate as opposed to supply. IF we are able to convert our energy usage to more clean burning natural gas, mainly by powering our autos on gas or LNG, demand will increase and we will need additional supply in order to keep prices low. Additionally, you and I probably share the opinion that coal as a source of energy has had a significant negative impact on the NC environmen (acid rain from our neighbors in TN). Even with the advent of better scrubbers for emissions, it still has a negative impact. I believe that natural gas is our cleanest source of fossil fuel and will have to carry us for potentially several decades until we can find a non fossil fuel solution. I also believe that the technology exists currently to negate the risks to the environment in NC and elsewhere. As such, I am all for fracking in NC.
Great column. You should have added the following:
As the above demonstrates, The Chicago Scool dominated economic thought during one of the longest post-war expansions during our nation's history. We need to return to free markets and moneterist thinking as opposed to the failed Keynsian economic policies.BTW, having lunch in UofC's faculty dining room is one of the most awe inspiring experiences in my life!
What do you suggest I run the generator on??? Natural gas of propane (LNG). If the gas comes from NC, gladly. Always hacking on the special interest such as business being behind everything. No one ever speeaks about special interests such as the Sierra Club, AFSCME, George Soros and othe political left leaning elites (like George Kaiser) who gain special favors ??? By the way, being knowledgable about Kaiser's financial position, he has been LONG natural gas for years (in OTC swaps and futures) and says he will always be so. What is his special interest??? Probably restricted access to new natural gas supplies in the market. BTW, he was one of Obama's main contributors and a shareholder in Solyndra. Guess its who's ox is being gored.
What can we say that hasn't already been said about The Pilot? My eyes almost start to bleed sometimes.
I live in Pinehurst and find SP a refreshing diversion from the up tight folks who want to keep the village center as is( which means absolutely nothing to do). I enjoy going to Cup of Flow Coffee and taking my dog. I enjoy dropping by River Traders and other stores. Broad St. is a great downtown. I like the Bohemian feel if the SP folks don't mind me saying so.
I don't say this often to you Steve; you wrote a good column.
Sanity returns to NC. When we have Pat McCrory as governor and not some hack politician like Bev Perdue, we can finally start moving this state forward. Good old Bev can veto now but it will be signed into law in 2013.
All you alarmist tree hugging liberals should just sit back, relax and take a swig of your Perrier.
Drill Baby Drill
