Seward’s Folly is now the Obama Real Folly

If we can't control our hair, how can we control our lives?

Obama constantly reminds the us that due to his greatness we are getting all the changes he promised.  One change he is particularly proud of is our domestic oil production is at a 10-year high, or the equivalent usage of the entire “Jersey Shore cast’s hair grease.  Forget the fact that most of this new oil is from private land and Obama has virtually shut down all production from federal lands.
Because we have been producing all that new oil, surely we don’t need part of Alaska, right?  Alaska was purchased from the Ruskies, in 1867, for $7.2 million ($120 million in today’s dollars) at approximately two cents per acre.  The purchase of this frontier land was variously mocked by the public as Seward’s Folly, “Seward’s Icebox,” and Andrew Johnson’s “polar bear garden.”  When asked what he considered to be his greatest achievement as Secretary of State, Seward replied “The purchase of Alaska—but it will take the people a generation to find it out“.
The Obama administration, awarded for it’s transparency, has agreed, in secret to give away seven Alaskan islands in the Bering Sea.  The state of Alaska was not even allowed in the negotiations.  Alaska even passed a resolution opposing this land transfer, but what does Obama care about state sovereignty.
Obama’s State Department is giving away seven strategic, resource-laden Alaskan islands to the Russians.  The  endangered (Alaskan)  islands are in the Arctic Ocean and Bering Sea including one the size of Rhode Island and Delaware combined. The Russians are also to get the tens of thousands of square miles of oil-rich seabeds surrounding the islands. The Department of Interior estimates billions of barrels of oil are at stake.

The US is having a going out of business sale. Everything must go!!!

Of course, since we are so rich in oil….what’s that you say?  Obama claims we only have 2% of the worlds oil but use 20%!   There’s no question that is a complete lie,  Obama has the distinction of being a more prolific liar than Bill Clinton.  If we only have 2 % of the world’s oil, I guess Obama just gave away 50% of what he claims we originally have/had.   Leaving us with a grand total of 1% after Obama is done with us.  Penny for your thoughts America.
Obama is banning the Americans from drilling for oil on these Alaskan islands (and off the coast of Florida), because it might disturb the environment.  So, we might as well give it to the Russians because they will respect the pristine environment on those fragile islands…..ha ha ha, that’s rich.  Vlad is known for his “green” outlook on economics.  Here’s to your “flexibility after the election” Mr. President.  Putin will be tearing it up for oil, tomorrow.  Let’s hope it doesn’t take a generation to find out that Obama has been harmful to this nation.  Even Snooki knows that.

Well...duh. Let me host "Beergate" next time.
