50 Million Barrels

What does that really mean?

There’s a RBDBE …*

Last week Joe Biden announced that he was going to release 50 million barrels of oil from America’s SPR (Strategic Petroleum Reserve) to help rein in gas and heating oil prices for Thanksgiving.

Joe, is that your I’ve got gas face, or I just made another boom-boom face?

YAY! —Joe’s actually doing something.

I went to work the next morning thinking that something didn’t make sense about the SPR release, but… Fortunately, I had ten hours of blissful bus driving to contemplate the ramifications of Joe’s wondrous deed.

One of the first things to cross my layperson’s mind was a question. With the price of oil skyrocketing, why would a president put our collective security (the USA) at risk by squandering the SPR? We need that oil for real emergencies, not those manufactured by Biden’s ineptitude.

Then, it occurred to me that the reason he did it was simple. It’s easy. It’s also meaningless. While 50 million barrels sounds like a lot of oil to you and me, those in-the-know, know that America burns through 50 million barrels every two days, give or take 12 hours depending on things like holidays or weather conditions. When I say those in-the-know, that should include the Biden administration but obviously doesn’t.

So 50 million barrels is meaningless, and the proof is there for all to see. What’s the price of gas today? Hmmm? Biden doesn’t care whether you pay $4 or $5 a gallon at the pump. The important thing for him is being able to say that he did something. Besides, when no one is looking, the Biden administration will just buy back that 50 million barrels and Bob’s-Your- Uncle.

I promised an RBDBE, and here it is. It’s something that I haven’t heard anyone report on, so I’ll do my best to throw it out there myself.

Today, under Biden’s dysfunctional economy, the price of oil is just over $83 a barrel. Back in the summer of 2020, during the Trump economic success story, the price of oil bottomed out at just over $12 a barrel. Folks, I’m not making this up. You can fact-check it for yourself if you need to, but if you drive a car or buy just about anything, you know it’s true.

Under President Trump, we purchased oil for $12 a barrel times 50 million barrels =

$600 Million

Under Joe Biden, we purchase oil for $83 a barrel times 50 million barrels =

$4.15 Billion

Millions to Billions: Biden’s 50 Million Barrel SPR release is meaningless from every angle except one, more inflation.

PS – At this point, we have to ask ourselves an increasingly vital question. Is the Biden administration entirely inept, or is it entirely adept—at being un-American?

Justice is served and served well

for Kyle Rittenhouse and his family

A big part of that is attributed to the courage of the jurors. Their collective determination not to be intimidated by domestic terrorist groups and liberal media sycophants is the reason our system works. Also, kudos to Circuit Judge Bruce Schroeder for his professionalism. Without him, a fair trial would’ve been impossible.

It’s the subject for a future post but the blatant violation of Kyle Rittenhouse’s civil rights by Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger,* is just the beginning of what I think should be a long list of actionable lawsuits (Biden is in there too).

But now we have a bigger problem. The true Domestic Terrorists (a.k.a. BLM, Antifa, CNN, MSNBC, and Joy Behar) didn’t get the decision they wanted so now they have to riot. They didn’t just threaten to, they promised.

The problem is out of control and we have to put an end to it now. Kyle Rittenhouse can’t be the only one to stand up for average Joes and Janes. Kyle is the example, not the rule. We—the average, have to pick up the charge and stand for what’s right.

It’s worth every minute, so please watch this video.

Why is it that when conservatives protest, it’s a riot? When progressives riot, it’s a protest?

For the left, ends always justify the means. When it comes to breaking the law, destroying businesses, and invading neighborhoods: it’s not wrong … it’s just what the left does. They know that their ideology is flawed, so they need to force it.

It’s Modus Operandi (their standard operating procedure) to go out in the streets and foment chaos while armed with guns, Molotov cocktails, bricks, bottles, and now—skateboards. They have no concern for who they injure or kill because there aren’t any repercussions; no arrest, no charges brought by district attorneys like Tom Binger, no trial, and no jail time.

Did you see it in the video? Gaige Grosskreutz points a loaded gun at Kyle Rittenhouse. Why isn’t he being charged?

To sum it up as only a lowly Bus Driver can:

At this time of the year (especially), it’s important to recognize a simple truth. God created the United States of America and gave it to each and every American; a genuine and unique gift that comes with the responsibility to preserve and protect it for all, and for all time. If we lose track of this, God’s gift can be taken away.

*FYI, Thomas Binger is the one who brandished an AR-15 in the courtroom. Then, in an absolute demonstration of pure genius (lack thereof), pointed it at the jury with his finger on the trigger. Did he take his cues from Alec Baldwin?
