Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less Petition


I was listening to the Sean Hannity Radio show the other day and he mentioned that former House Speaker - Newt Gingrich is heading up a bipartisan petition drive( see video) to pressure congress to take some action on the issue of domestic drilling.

FOX News did a report on the petition drive this morning, and mentioned research data that "73% of the American people agree that with appropriate safeguards to protect the environment, we should drill for oil off America's coasts to reduce our dependence on foreign oil."

They just hit 900,000 signatures on the "Drill Here, Drill Now, Pay Less" petition, and the momentum continues to grow. I went to the Web site: American Solutions and signed the petition the other day. If you are interested and know others that might be, please spread the word.

Thanks for the info Patty. I went on and signed it and wrote to my local reps. I'm also sending the info in some emails.

Thanks Patty.... and thanks also for your kind comment on my last post. I heard from Holly, Tara, Cindi and you. How nice. What a sweet family you have.

I wrote the poem I posted for my little son but I want to revise it and make it appropriate for little Olive Lucy. I'm working on it

Ok I tried posting and it gave me an error message so hopefully I'm not double posting. I just wanted to say that I signed the petition and to thank you for posting it as we don't always hear all the news.
