It might be easier to stomach if these greedy politicians would just stop lyin' about (1) needing to drill to reduce prices at the pumps; and (2) there were no oil spills after Katrina and Rita.
There may be some good reason - though I haven't heard any I'd accept - for opening up more areas for drilling. Just stop lying and treating folks like fools. Granted, Big Oil has spread it's tenacles [and its money] into the talking-head class, and they're staying on message. So let'em make their case if they can, just stop with the lyin' . . .
Of course, there were oil spills after Katrina and Rita - millions of gallons of oil. And when the greasy pols say there wasn't - well, it's the old joke, who you gonna believe, me or your eyes. There's pictures people, and video, for gawd's sake.
And more areas for lease! What the fuck do they need it for? There's millions of acres already leased and not used - and they want more? Why? And on the Louisiana coast, aren't there enough wells already?
Big Oil is just greedy. Enough said . . .
Big Oil and their Mouthpiece-in-chief from Texass, the bloody oil monkey hisself . . .
