United States uses 26% of all world oil! Canada our largest supplier!

“Consider that the United States, with four percent of the world’s population, consumes a disproportionate slice of the world’s oil-production pie chart. The U.S. Energy Information Administration estimates that we import almost 10 million barrels of crude oil per day of the 74 million the world produces (up from 21 million in 1960). We use 10 million barrels of our own oil, making our consumption roughly 26 percent of all crude oil pumped out of the earth.”

“We buy about half of our 10 million imported barrels from four countries. They are: Canada (1.86 million barrels), Mexico (1.17), Saudi Arabia (1.08), and Venezuela (1.07). The rest comes from eleven other countries.”

“It is apparent, then, that we buy 3.32 million barrels of crude each day from countries that either want to repossess California, have a habit of funding Middle Eastern terrorist groups, or are led by an egomaniac who hates everything about the U.S. except Sean Penn. We could lose Canada if a bad call by a U.S. referee should cost one of its hockey teams the Stanley Cup.”

Oh, we are already at odds with Canada. The migration of Hockey from some Canadian provinces to hot beds like Phoenix and Atlanta have caused some rifts alright.

Who plays hockey in the desert?

Well Richard, you have been consuming 26% of Humboldt County's Canola Oil. Where is the justice in that?

What I want to know is what is our oil doing beneath Canadian soil?

Eric, in your case the question would be: "What is Eric Kirks money doing in some dope growers hands?"
