We have passed peak oil. The reason prices for us have not increased much is because of huge subsidies (more than $5 trillion annually), not to talk about indirect subsidies such as our military empire (about a trillion spent annually) used pretty directly to ensure a steady flow of oil in unfriendly regions around the world.

This also is not calculating the cost of pollution and inevitably global warming. A recent estimate suggested that just with the global warming pollution so far, 7 million more human lives are lost annually. Hundreds of millions could die from pollution if the Paris Accords are surpassed at the rate they are now. And, the monetary costs could be hundreds of trillions, wiping out any thought of a growing economy anywhere. (The world's wealth is only about $280 trillion.)

Meanwhile, nonsubsidized onshore wind and solar are now the cheapest energy sources, according to Bloomberg. Coal, gas and petroleum are only going higher, with subsidies and their enormous carbon footprint exoneration helping them to stay afloat.

[Not to mention what is going to happen when financial institutions realize that all of the fossil fuel in the ground is going to be stranded, meaning unable to ever be used. Stock values will tank and those hugely profitable mega corporations are going to be worth shit. And likely the world will have a depression unlike anything we have ever experienced, unless we prepare for this inevitability.]

So, drillers are spending more money on less accessible and more hazardous oil to keep up with demand. We are processing dirtier and dirtier oil, releasing more and more methane and carbon, and, with fracking, destroying the ground water of entire states. Is everyone going to drink bottled water so we can have another few more years of cheap oil and gas?
nope nope nope..I'm listening to a bunch of paid for by the industry deniers...I'm going to reference outdated articles and facts that died a long time ago...no new evidence of any kind can bust through..not even what I can see with my own eyes...I'm liking the past and sticking to it...I'm listening to the same liars that told me cigarettes weren't addicting and didn't have any bad effects on my life...why? because it feels good and fits into some corner of my political agenda...I get to stick it to some libs..so delicious...

The Democrat's last presidential candidate (Hitlary) actually went on national television to declare that KKK Exalted Cyclops Robert Byrd was her "friend and mentor", reminding the world that it was the Democrats that founded the KKK, and earning her the endorsement of the KKK, as publicly announced by KKK Grand Dragon Will Quigg.
Yawn. The problem with that demonizing of the Dems is that it is well known that after LBJ passed the Voting Rights Act, all of the racists in the Dixiecrat party fled to the Republican Party, which welcomed them.

Nixon even began the Southern Strategy to use racist dog whistles to bring the redneck racists into the fold. And his Law and Order campaign was designed to equate crime with race. And the party’s war on drugs was actually a hidden attack on minorities and young liberals.

Divide and Conquer. As with Nixon, so it is with the big orange blowhard.

I was referring more generically to the Southern former Democrats who moved to the Republican party after the civil rights legislation was signed by LBJ. I was not referring to the actual party. Dixie indicates racism.

Read about the Southern Strategy. Go ahead and use your favorite Wiki. It is a thing.

The war against drugs and the crime busting was a way Nixon persecuted his enemies. It was documented in Nixon’s tapes. No paranoia involved. He was out to get them.

True to liberal form, now you're just making up lies to try to blame Republicans for the racism of the Democrat party.

From the "Dixiecrats" Wikipedia page:

" After the 1948 election, its leaders generally returned to the Democratic Party.[2]".

The Voting Rights Act was signed into law on August 6th 1965, and the Dixiecrat Party was dissolved in 1948

So "all of the racists in the Dixiecrat party never "fled to the Republican Party" as you claim, nor did Dixiecrats do anything after "after LBJ passed the Voting Rights Act", because the Dixiecrat party was dissolved 17 years BEFORE the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Voting_Rights_Act_of_1965

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dixiecrat



Sounds like the pot is making you paranoid.
sigh..even your evidence points to the Dixiecrats as being conservatives...blah blah blah about the "party" they formed...so after it was "dissolved" they just kind of went away..never heard of again and didn't go back to the dems only to join the republicans...never happened...all of the history written on this is wrong according to you...even the evidence you provide is wrong according to you...the GOP didn't welcome them with open arms either...in fact it isn't people in the GOP who proudly fly a racist flag of one of our countries enemies...you know some people who were fighting for the right of white people to lord over the "inferior" races...nope they're all 100% Americans...in fact the GOP and it's leader aren't using that old Nixoian dog whistle of race and crime...nope he's never ever equated brown from "other places" people with crime...nope didn't happen...
I've only been on this earth for a measly 71 years...in all of that time conservative has ALWAYS equaled racist..whether or not they were in the democratic party didn't make any difference...the FACT that they left the democratic party and joined the republican party is just that a FACT...whether or not you want to admit it is up to you...it's as plain as the fake orange make up some clown with the world's dumbest comb over wears...you can not get any phonier than him..but hell bang zoom right over some people's heads (hint: usually racist heads at that)...join the party it's fun...

We discussed the fucking bike. It is impressive. A paean to a historic petroleum age.

More interesting is why manufacturers are so clueless they are making the equivalent of buggy whips in a post-carbon age.

It takes quite the moron to be stupid enough to think that there are more racist in the Republican party than democrat. Almost all racial attacks are committed by those that associate with the democrat party. They sure do attract the haters that's for sure.

What hobby is that? Riding? Talking about the real significance of things? Dreaming about an item that will soon only be found in the Smithsonian?

Wallace's speech writer was Democrat Asa Earl Carter, the leader of a radical Splinter faction of the KKK.

From Wikipedia:

"In 1957, Carter and his brother James were jailed for fighting against Birmingham police officers. The police were trying to apprehend another of the six in their group, who was wanted for a suspected Ku Klux Klan (KKK) shooting.[8] Also during the mid-1950s, Carter founded a paramilitary KKK splinter group, called the "Original Ku Klux Klan of the Confederacy".[9] Carter started a monthly publication entitled The Southerner, devoted to purportedly scientific theories of white racial superiority...[3]:115

In April 1956 members of Carter's new KKK group attacked singer Nat King Cole on stage at a Birmingham concert.[3]:115 In September 1957 six members of Carter's Klan group abducted and attacked a black handyman named Judge Edward Aaron. They castrated Aaron, poured turpentine on his wounds, and left him abandoned in the trunk of a car near Springdale, Alabama. Police found Aaron, near death from blood loss.[3]:115 Four of the six involved were convicted of mayhem and sentenced to twenty years, but in 1963, a parole board, appointed by Carter's then-employer Alabama governor George Wallace, commuted their sentences.[3]:115"

Want to know why black-clad AntiFA (Anti First Amendment) Democrat thugs are savagely attacking the good and decent citizens of this great nation? You need look no further than the history of their racist Democrat party. I find it ironic that their Orwellian definition of the "tolerance" they preach, does not extend to anyone who dares not goose-step to their jack-booted regime.
yeah the guy was a CONSERVATIVE,,democrat or not...yeah antifa scares the livin' crap outta you...they barely exist..but you've got your knickers in a bunch...is there anything really stupid you won't believe in...I mean the dumber the better right? once again that clown was a CONSERVATIVE..him and his ilk left the dems and joined the GOP were they found a happy home...check your dates there buddy...before the civil rights act...CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE CONSERVATIVE...that's why they ain't in the dem party any more...hello earth to MV..he was a CONSERVATIVE..he liked the CONFERERATE FLAG..like the GOP does now...confederate=racist=TODAY'S GOP..not nineteen fiftyseven..it's SIXTY TWO years later...wakey wakey wakey...antifa..how many of these guys are there that you're SO AFRAID and want everyone else to cower like you? antifa..oooooooooooooo..look out kiddies they're going to GET YOU...hahahahahahahaha..nah that ain't silly or stupid...hey I know pull up some photoshopped pictures of ANTFA..the commies...hahahahahahahahahaa rightist bringing out goose stepping..oooo that's rich...so Trumpian to project...you do know what projection is don't you? nazi and goose stepping are RIGHTIST..on the right side of the political spectrum...bwa hahahahahahha nah not the simplest trick to try and play..but hell you fall for it..repeat it...bwa hahahahahahaha

Meh, let it go. It will peter out soon and be relegated to the dusty archives.
It IS a shame they didn't go crazy and do it as a 6 though!
