Obama is taking credit for the oil boom?

I shouldn't be surprised at him taking credit for something he had nothing to do with, just like taking credit for Bush's plans to get out of Iraq in 2011.

Anyway, I was getting my Poly pipe fusion certs back up and was talking to some of the guys (and gals) who were there from the (BOOMING) s. Texas oil patch.
They're putting in miles of 18-24" Poly gathering lines for that Eagleford development.

The only thing the FED.GOV has to do with the whole thing is to enforce regulations.
Regulations that come from PRIVATE companies drilling on PRIVATE land which are then transported by PRIVATE companies on roads build by PRIVATE citizens paying taxes.

Those miles of plastic pipe, BTW- are made from the OIL that we have to import.


  1. You do poly pipe welding?

    That is too cool. I always wanted to learn that.

  2. Find a supplier for poly pipe in your area and ask about getting certified.
    It cost $200 for all four kinds (Butt Fusion, Sidewall Fusion, Socket Fusion and Electro Fusion). It's about a 4-5 hour class. Then you can come to S. Texas and get a job in Eagleford with a pipeline company.
    Of course it would help to have your own sleeping arrangements...
