About that lifting of the offshore drilling ban....

It is all smoke and mirrors. Obama has lifted the FEDERAL moratorium, but he has not deigned to share any of the royalties with the states. The states, feeling screwed by the feds will nut up and refuse any leases unless they get their fair share of the royalties. So Obama gets his cake and eats it too. He gets to say he lifted the ban, while being able to functionally maintain the ban at the same time. Meanwhile he has snookered a bunch of Congresscritters into voting for Cap and Tax in the process.

Speaking of redistribution of wealth, I cringe every time I hear about the importance of completing the census so that my state can get its share of federal money.
