US Drill Rigs Running Up 74 from One Year Ago

US drill rigs running up 74 from one year ago. There were 448 drill rigs running in the US last week, up 8 rigs from the previous count. Canadian drillers operated 55 rigs last week, up 4 rigs from the previous count which is up 29 rigs from one year ago.

US Raw Steel Production Down from Last Week

In the week ending 5/8/21 US raw steel production was 1,774,000 net tons at an ACUR of 78.1 percent, down 0.8 percent from last week.

Let’s see what the idiots in Washington and around the country are doing this week:

On Monday, the idiot governor of Washington state, Jay Inslee, mandated the teaching of critical race training in public schools in grades K-12. Critical race theory is a load of horse shit. This is the United States of America and Americans do NOT want this garbage fed to their children. He should be impeached. I know Washington is a liberal state, but I find it hard to believe a majority of the state’s residents want this.

Hamas/Israeli Conflict

Hamas fired 1700 missiles indiscriminately into Israel this week. What do you think the Biden response was? Nothing. “People should use restraint.” I am sure that does much to calm the situation.

VaxAMillion Ohio

The idiot governor we have here in Ohio, Mike DeWine announced a series of statewide drawings to provide incentives to students who get the vaccine. Why? Our youth have no real issues with covid. This is the reason I have not taken the vaccine; I do not trust the government! The vaccines have NOT been approved by the FDA; they were fast-tracked due to the pandemic. Our children, no one, should be forced to take the vaccine. Truth, Justice and the American way…this ain’t it.

Pipeline Politics

In the midst of a contrived fuel shortage, the genius governor of Michigan, Gretchen Whitmer has ordered the shut-down of an oil and gas pipeline which runs through the Straits of Mackinac, claiming the pipeline is a “ticking timebomb.” The company says the line has NEVER leaked into the straits. The Canadian company, Enbridge, was told to shut down the pipeline, known as Line 5 by Wednesday due to activist fears that it could spill any day. Right, and the earth will be gone in 12 years. How do these morons get voted into office-and stay there?

Open Letter

On a patriotic note, more than 120 retired United States generals and admirals signed an open letter warning that the United States is embroiled in an existential fight and urged “all citizens” to get involved in local and state politics.

We are in a fight for our survival as a Constitutional Republic like no other time since our founding in 1776. The conflict is between supporters of socialism and Marxism vs. supporters of Constitutional freedom and liberty,” states the letter. The letter goes on to reveal the differences between the American way and the Marxist or socialist way, i.e. China, re-entering the Iran nuclear deal (how stupid is that?), illegal immigration, stopping the Keystone XL Pipeline. It goes on…

CDC Guidelines for Fully Vaccinated

All of a sudden, the CDC says that on June 2, fully vaccinated people do NOT have to wear masks or be socially distant…yet the president, vice president and all the other morons continue to mask up.





Have a great weekend…. God bless America!

Buy American made products whenever you can, it’s good for you, good for your friends and neighbors and good for our country.

If you are hiring…try to hire a veteran…. they are loyal, disciplined, hardworking…and they deserve our support.

By the way, if you wish to comment on my rants or offer any other insights you may have, you are encouraged to email me.


In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person’s becoming in every facet an American and nothing but an American. There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn’t an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag…We have room for but one language here and that is the English language…and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people.”
