    Seriously, why do left wingers find an excuse for not taking the responsibility on their watch? We're waiting for the "The helium shortage is Bush's fault."

    Jonathan Eddy & My2Cents,

    What in this article are you seeing that even remotely supports either of your posts?

    Why do right wingers seize even the most straightforward and non-political news stories as platforms for shouting conspiracy theory nonsense?

    Seriously guys, get a grip.

    . "Some companies," he said, "are selling it overseas because they get a premium price for it."

    Natural gas is a carbon fuel and its the duty of our president to put this country into an international depression and this apparent shortage is just the beginning of this country's conversion to non carbon based energy or by-products of carbon energy. Pretty soon plastic bags will be at a premium and a run on deforesting the national forests to manufacture paper bags will be a new industry.

    Along with the plastic bags disappearing so will many drugs and medications and poisons from the FDA approved drug industry.

    All in all, this country is on the right track of self destruction by abolishing all carbon based energy resources. Do you know what else is a carbon based environmental hazard? People.
