Record low unemployment & hunger, record high median income, #1 oil producer - we are just winning *all* the wins this week! :D 🇺🇸

Seriously, This is BIG news! Energy independence is, and should be, one of our biggest national priorities, lest we rely on Middle East for oil and appease the unappeasable.

Median income hasn't kept pace with inflation and actually dropped. Unemployment doesn't speak to quality of those jobs or overall economic health in terms of inequality or the distribution of income within those jobs. Oil production is not a good thing on two fronts. First you have global warming, which I assume you probably don't believe in. Secondly, fracking is extremely damaging to the local environment and the people who live near fracking operations. The Trump economy (and the Obama economy by extension) is one of wealth inequality and extreme gains by the 1% (including the oil CEOs who are making millions off this nonsense).

fracking is to acquire natural gas, not oil.fyi

Congratulations USA 😊 Hopefully you guys can send some surplus gas up here to Canada so we don't get bent over at the pumps so badly 1.50/L x 3.785 = 5.67/gallon in some places.

Energy independence is the biggest safe guard to the US, economically and militarily. If we tap into Alaska we will be an absolute juggernaut.

Left Shark, I applaud you for applying skepticism and stating unpopular facts. I hope you keep digging deeper and ask critical questions like “why?” And “how?” I hope that you will dig deep enough to realize virtually all the problem you stated cannot be solved by government intervention, and any solution involving government can be better enforced via free market solutions. If so, I hope we can have more fruitful discussions going forward. If not, it just means you just lack imagination and I pity you.
Mr. Sir 10 months
Improper reply. Oh well. Maybe someone will see this comment.

This needs to be the American rallying cry to abandon Middle East oil exploits and withdraw our interest in that entire area.

I guess we will see dropping gas prices. Make Americans pay $0.75 per gallon again. If he can do that then I'll definitely vote for him.
Mr. Spartacus 10 months
Nah gas prices that low aren’t good...inflation and taxes on refineries caused the $3.50 gas price, if it dips below like 2.5 ish it’ll start layoffs in oilfield again...then we stop producing, opec comes back in even lower, then hikes up the price when we can’t ween ourselves off. Don’t believe me? It happened last time gas was at 2 bucks
Opher Simani 10 months
Well fuck.
Korvin Carry 10 months
well, where i live its juuuust above that 2.50 mark. almost 2.60. other parts of the cpuntry are at, like, 5 or 6 a gallon though...

Russia is easy to unseat, their oil costs more to get out of the ground and shipped due to location. If oil is below $100 a barrel they lose money and it hurts their entire economy. The middle east oil supply is being depleted. Dubai knew this and has about twenty years left, that's why they have been working so hard to shift their nation into a millionaire playground. America sat on our oil reserves for a long time and have at least 100 years worth of oil still in the ground. Long term we already won the energy war. When those middle east oil nations start running low we get to change the current agreement on how oil is shared in the global oil pool.
