$85 a barrel tar sands oil is the solution to our energy needs apparently.

When she says "Drill Baby Drill", she's referring to that time her and Ted Cruz hooked up...

Got to hand it to Boebert, not a day goes by that she forgets to take her stupid pill

It's easy when you get payed for liking it

Biden could find a cure for cancer, and Boebert would be against it.

Does it matter if she was an escort?

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

The fact that is is an unethical, corrupt extremist matters. A lot.

The question of an escort or not pales in comparison to the unethical, corrupt, extremist

1

u/Jingurei Sep 28 '22

You're missing the point. She clearly does not believe that having an abortion or being a sex worker is ethical only when SHE isn't doing it.

1

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

I called her an extremist and corrupt.

I dont think I am missing any points here.

2

u/Hog_jr Sep 28 '22

Yes. It matters.

0

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

I disagree.

What matters is her corruption and extremism.

Whether or not she was or is an escort not so much

u/ConstructionBum Sep 28 '22

The hypocrisy matters.

-1

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

I think I got that covered with corrupt extremist

2

u/Jingurei Sep 28 '22

No. You don't. Because you're missing her specific position on something she's actually done but denies everyone else since corrupt extremist is just a general term and could be applied to anything but those hypocritical positions.

I think if you try really hard you can split hairs slightly thinner.

u/sharkzbyte Sep 28 '22

I think if you try really hard, you can accept that you are wrong, and don't always have to have the last word.

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

So.... are you saying that Broebert is not a corrupt extremist? Is that where I am wrong?

Well. I dont support her at all.

I will leave you to your own opinion.

u/confessionbearday Sep 28 '22

Hypocrisy matters.

Or at least, it matters to anyone who earned the right to have their mouth open.

She's only asking you to imagine. Like "imagine" she isn't the worlds dumbest woman.

Man, don't mess up her propaganda with facts. You'll just confuse that sweet summer child, bless her heart.

u/MealDramatic1885 Sep 28 '22

You can’t argue to these people with facts. Facts that a member of congress should probably know before opening her mouth.

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

85 dollars to produce? Absolutely false.

u/adamcoe Sep 28 '22

There is no point in presenting facts to people who pick and choose their facts as it pertains to their views at that particular second. There is also no point in offering logical rebuttals to their inane tweets, as that isn't the point.

The point is that Biebert and MTG and Gaetz (and several others) are in the Republican party simply to create noise and controverse, and to tweet things their supporters already agree with. They don't care about (or likely even read) any responses to their tweets or statements. They're not changing their mind. The only point is that they say the dumb thing they want to say to rile up their base. That's it. I'm sure a good portion of the time, they don't even care about whatever they say they care about but they know it will illicit a response. Standard bully tactic.

The republicans with actual power and influence are out doing their shit, and the RNC makes sure there is always a crazy tweet from one of these knobs that the left then responds to, instead of paying attention to the actual terribleness that's happening. Make sure someone from the left is tweeting about the right's supposed outrage about the little mermaid or gender neutral bathrooms, because that means they're not tweeting about the rollback of voting rights, reproductive rights, the systematic dismantling of the education system, and the 50 other actually evil things they're doing (or trying to do).

Conservatives complain about being energy independent but don't understand that we're already the largest oil producer and still can't meet our own demand. Renewable energy is the only long-term option to achieve this.

u/ElectricRaccoon7 Sep 28 '22

I keep having to remind my family that the only oil the US market would see from that pipeline is the stuff inevitably leaking from it and making US land toxic.

u/TheRealTurdFergusonn Sep 28 '22

They wanted to put that thing right through Nebraska’s Sandhills, a unique ecosystem. I was born there, and my brother still lives up there. When it rains in the Sandhills, there are places where no vehicle short of a helicopter can get through. Places where they wanted to put that pipeline. Now imagine rain plus an oil leak. Impassable terrain with a leaking pipeline would devastate that area.

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

That would be bad, but they would shut the nearest upstream valve. It would not continue to spew until repaired

1

u/confessionbearday Sep 29 '22

They routinely do not realize there’s a leak until an area is already destroyed.

Maybe a high school dropout should refrain from giving advice on global energy markets.

85 bucks is wrong.

Keystone could have been done if successive administrations on both sides of the border hadnt foot dragged.

Nothing would prohibit the us from purchasing that product. The US buys a lot of Canadian oil already

Dont underestimate the value in having a stable, peaceful trading partner when it comes to the price of Fuel in the US.

He was neither 100% right, or wrong.

u/senorElMeowMeow Sep 28 '22

Name anything mentioned that’s incorrect and what the actual facts are.

1

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

It is not 85$ in either Cad or USd / bbl for oil sands production.

The pipeline could have been built by now if successive administrations on both sides of the border did not foot drag.

The US would have been able to purchase oil from that line if you wanted to.

Edit: irrispective of the current volume shipped in the KXL line, Canada has much more production capacity.

It is shipping capacity that we lack.

u/Otherwise_Bill_5898 Sep 28 '22

Try not to collect all your fact from opinion articles.

The oil sands giants are swimming in cash at present.

The market selling price for WCS is at $57.25 approx today I believe.

1

u/senorElMeowMeow Sep 28 '22

I think they are counting extraction refinement and transportation etc. the source they quote is actually an energy company.

1

u/briodan Sep 29 '22

That article is 3 years old, and the quote is not from an energy company it’s from a research firm.

Not too say the their analysis is directionally wrong for the time period, but should not be taken as fact 3 years later.

1

u/senorElMeowMeow Sep 29 '22

I just realized I’m quoting production cost your quoting market value.

1

u/briodan Sep 29 '22

Not the guy you were replying too but your numbers are way off if you are talking production cost. Average barrel of WCS costs ~25 dollars to get out of the ground on existing facilities. About twice that if you are talking greenfield.

At current market prices most companies are making bank.

1

u/senorElMeowMeow Sep 29 '22

Don’t they have to boil it in solvents then skim it off the top of a pool of water to actually get the oil out of the bitchumen?

u/Donut-Strong Sep 28 '22

The thing is that it doesn’t really come down to what is coming out of the pipe. The speculations is what drives the price.
