    China's Drilling for Oil in America's Backyard, Republicans Say

    By Susan Jones

    (CNSNews.com) - House Republicans want the American people to know that right now -- around 60 miles off the coast of Key West, Fla. -- China is drilling for oil, thanks to a lease issued by Cuba.

    But 1,200 miles north of Key West, Democrats in Washington are blocking the United States from conducting its own environmentally-safe oil and gas exploration in similar U.S. coastal areas, said a news release from House Republican leader John Boehner's office.

    Why shouldn't they help themselves to what we throw out? We do not need the oil that bad. We are moving beyond oil. Dilithium Crystals will power every energy need that we have. Scotty, beam me out of this madness!
