Rising in the Senate on May 13, Chuck Schumer, the New York Democrat, explained: “I rise to discuss rising energy prices.” The president was heading to Saudi Arabia to seek an increase in its oil production, and Schumer’s gorge was rising.

Saudi Arabia, he said, “holds the key to reducing gasoline prices at home in the short term.” Therefore arms sales to that kingdom should be blocked unless it “increases its oil production by one million barrels per day,” which would cause the price of gasoline to fall “50 cents a gallon almost immediately.” More from the Washington Post

  1. Seize the oil. An international food embargo to the middle east may be necessary to secure middle eastern, caspian sea, and south china sea oil. And toppling the Islamic Supremicist nations there would do much to bring freedom to the people. And china is drilling 60 miles off the coast of Florida? What kind of a government would allow a nation to take their oil reserves? What kind of a government would allow china to continue to exist?
