T Boone Lootens

While watching the Science Channel last week, I saw an ad featuring oil billionaire T. Boone Pickens.  He said he will propose–in a series of ads–a new plan to reduce our use of foreign oil, clean up the environment, feed the hungry, make the Religion of Peace peaceful, house the homeless, and get to the Age of Aquarius.

Well.

At the end, he reiterated the leftist talking point “We can’t drill our way out of this.”

Why not?  “This” refers to the problem of rising gas and oil prices.  If we start pulling oil out of Alaska, the Atlantic coast, the Pacific Coast, the Gulf, the Great Lakes, and the various oil shale deposits… then we will have more oil, right?

Wrong.  We need more subsidies to the wind industry.  Pickens has made himself a regular, old-fashioned looter.  Take from the taxpayer to give to him.
