There is a move afoot to ban all oil tanker traffic from the part of the Gulf of Mexico that falls under our jurisdiction.
I infer from this that the EPA effort to shut down all the oil refineries in Texas has come to naught. Shutting the Texas refineries completely would cost us about 30% of the refined petrolium products produced in this country, including feed stocks for plastics. If you deprive them of imported oil, they still run, but at much reduced capacity.
Stalin starved 7 million people to death by depriving them of food. O'Bama must be planning to freeze the red states to death by cutting off the fuel.
