rodney alexander + knoe-tv & will moses= full of crap

**shortcut: click here for barbaro *

when we first clicked over on the dead pelican tonight and saw this headline we thought oh boy we get to do another fake republican watch post similar to the ones we posted here and here. you know fake republicans the ones who always introduce or are voting on anti-republican legislation because republicans are supposed to stand for less government regulation and lower taxes blah, blah, blah.

we thought we were onto something good when we clicked over and read knoe's very deceptive story that is until we actually researched this bill which isnt even a bill its a house concurrent resolution but we are getting ahead of ourselves.
knoe snip:
Alexander's bill would require oil companies to use at least a portion of their earnings to expand refining capacity. It's one of several moves Alexander believes would increase supply and bring down the price of gasoline.
alexander's bill which isnt a bill does nothing of the same. its a worthless house concurrent resolution that merely expresses the "sense of congress" ('sense of congress' what an oxymoron) "...that american oil companies SHOULD (emphasis ours) reinvest their profits into building additional refining capacity..."

now you have to understand rodney alexander. for one thing he is a turncoat a backstabber and a deceiver. he was elected back in 2002 because he was a democrat then he switches parties to republican because mean ol nancy pelosi scared him LOL. what a clown. now alexander is back on the deception train aided by knoe-tv and "reporter" will moses.

which brings us to another thing - all you news hawks that stop by here would it kill you to put the bill numbers in your stories? or do you bother to research anything that you report on? it looks to us like you took some press release you received from alexander's office then didnt bother to check it before rushing out to file a story about it. it took us about two minutes to find this bill which isnt a bill but a concurrent resolution on the house.gov website. we might add that we dont have a staff or a bank of computers or any fact checkers - heck on this table we dont even have a pencil or a pad of paper, so whats your excuse???

2d Session

H. CON. RES. 460

Expressing the sense of Congress that American oil companies should build additional refining capacity on existing refinery campuses.


July 28, 2006

Mr. ALEXANDER submitted the following concurrent resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce


Expressing the sense of Congress that American oil companies should build additional refining capacity on existing refinery campuses.

Whereas gasoline prices are currently on average over $3 per gallon in the United States;

Whereas there is a known shortage of refinery capacity in the United States and we are unable to process enough supply of gasoline to meet the Nation's demand;

Whereas the United States is forced to import approximately 1,000,000 barrels of crude oil each day;

Whereas crude oil prices are currently at $75 per barrel with no drop in that price in the foreseeable future;

Whereas the profits of American oil companies are reaching record highs;

Whereas a stable, steady oil supply and United States refining capacity is a national security issue; and

Whereas current refinery capacity is stretched to its limits: Now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the House of Representatives (the Senate concurring), That it is the sense of Congress that American oil companies should reinvest their profits into building additional refining capacity on existing refinery campuses so that the United States will become independent of foreign refineries and, in effect, help to reduce the current high price of gasoline.
