...private property rights...

Have been irrelevant since Kelo vs. City of New London.

No, they haven't. Property rights are not binary. They are analog. They are on a sliding scale. Granted, they have been sliding in the wrong direction, which makes it all the more important that we are supportive of property rights and not attack the right of oil companies to actually sell oil.

I think it is a shame that oil companies have to seek permission from bureaucrats to sell their oil in the first place.
