A great interview with T. Boone Pickens. In five minutes he can explain the oil issue(s) we have in this country. He can explain the issues in a way that even a corrupt moron (aka US senator) can understand.
The part that's most powerful? The US is sending $700 billion to foreign regimes (which weakens the dollar) that may or may not be friendly to the US. Those dollars could be in the US treasury off of oil reserve royalties.
