Chuck Norris Says: "Congress, get off your gas, and drill!"

By corsa

Everyone knows you don't mess with Chuck Norris. And now he has a message for Congress: start drilling for oil in America now.

In a [url]]long rant[/url], Norris lays out his thoughts on why gas prices are so high and what we should be doing about it. (Warning! Lots of liberal-bashing!) He also mentions the "Drill here, drill now, pay less" online petition that has so far gain over 470,000 signatures, which basically states "We therefore the undersigned citizens of the United States petition the U.S. Congress to act immediately to lower gas prices by authorizing exploration of proven energy reserves and reduce our dependence on foreign energy sources from unstable countries."

He closes is piece like this: "Congratulations Congress – you're completely failing us."

So what do you think: do you agree with Chuck or is he way off-base?

chuck norris is full of it who's been backing the big oil companies for years,REPUBLICANS you can blame congress all you want, but who was in congress when the price of gas started go up, it was republicans the republican represents only 1% of the population the wealthy, and you don't hear them complaining about the price of gas heck they're the only ones who can afford it,
folks you got to understand chuck norris is an actor, a very rich actor, and what do actor do they act, we live in a time where only the wealthy can afford to run for public office or talk this kind of bs our president and his staff are good friends with the crown prince of saudia arabia this is why your gonna pay $4.00 a gallon ,oil people stick together and they know we as a country won't stand up to them, and by the way chuck is a McCain supporter, he needs to go back and do infomercials for a living and leave politics to the american people.

Did anyone actually go to and read through some of their stuff? That is perhaps the worst spewing of BS I have ever read.

I enjoy Norris as an actor and all the fun internet stuff that has branched from that but he is in no way an authority on the way the US political system works. You have bush who worked for and is backed by oil companies and you are going to go back to clinton to blame this on? wow I didn't think that anyone would buy that but the public never ceases to amaze me.

Yes everyone in the current government is partially to blame, but really? you really think this is all the democrats fault?

Another thought is who exactly do you think they will get to drill/extract the oil here? maybe the same companies that are screwing you now? Drilling here won't change the prices when the price will still be set by the same group gouging you now. Better yet who is going to eat the cost of setting up the new drilling rigs? maybe you?

Yes congress needs to act but they need to crack down on the oil companies far more than they need to open up new drilling sites.
