I love those energy independence stories. They always warm the cockles of my heart while my ass is freezing from the global warming currently consuming the nation. Remember all those stories about U.S. exports soaring? It wasn’t oil exports. It was LNG exports from our shale gas boom. It seems we may have exported too much propane. There are shortages across the country, as the polar express keeps chugging along. National prices have surged by 30% over last year and in some places have doubled or tripled to $5 or $6. But, don’t worry. The BLS will adjust away the increase, so your inflation won’t be higher. And energy independence is right around the corner. CNBC tells me so.
It seems the shale gas boom is running out of gas. The MSM has been telling me we have so much shale gas, we’re going to need Gas-Ex to get rid of it. I’ve read that we’re at capacity. Someone seems to be lying as the amount of natural gas in storage is currently 13% BELOW the 5 year average and 20% below last year levels at this same time. Where the frack did all the Marcellus shale gas and the Ford shale gas go? You aren’t going to tell me the corporate MSM and the Wall Street shysters have been peddling a false storyline?
Well thank God for Global Warming. We all know the planet is getting warmer, so we surely don’t need more propane and natural gas. What you say? Record cold temperatures are here to stay. How can that be? Combine the false storyline of global warming and the false storyline of 200 years supply of shale gas and you’ve got yourself a cold day in hell and a heating bill that will make you shit ice cubes. Keep worrying about that deflation. Your owners are counting on you staying willfully ignorant.
