And I have some ocean front property in Arizona, and if you'll buy that I'll throw the Golden Gate in free.

A secondary problem here is we need more refinery capacity in addition to increased supply. The increased supply goes beyond just the additional oil, it also includes reduced dependency on foreign sources of oil. Domestic means not getting controlled by a bunch of oil sheiks in far-off countries.

But it will sure help for the future. Drilling now and getting oil in several years is much more logical than not drilling now and not getting any more oil in several years, yet the anti-capitalist politicians seem to think that the prospect of 0 barrels of oil in the future since they can't have it now is somehow better than starting now to get more oil in the future.

Sully up the planet? Puhleez. ANWR is going to use 2000 acres out of 19 MILLION acres -- that doesn't even come close to that loaded word. The amount of acreage used is the equivalent of a 1.5" square in a 12 foot by 12 foot room. Would you consider a bare room to be "sullied" if a 1.5" square area had a spot on it? Now, in reality, the real situation will be a bunch of thin lines throughout the whole area, but it's just not worth the additional work to embellish the illustration.
