My Mama use to say, "Clean up your own room, Forest, before tell somebody to clean up their own!"
Now it seems to me GW Bush is trying to clean up Iraq, before he cleans up his own messes.
What I mean to say is that we need an "Energy Independence" plan based on investing in and exploiting alternative energy sources, before we go off and fight an Oil War in Iraq. If we had a plan maybe we can tell those folks they can take their oil an shove it, and not one American would die for "BIG OIL".
It seems, however, that US "BIG OIL" interests has every Republican and Democrat in their pocket. That's why we are going to send our young men and women into battle to once again secure the interests of "BIG OIL".
Its ironic, you know, just think of all the billions of dollars that will be spent on bombing Iraq, when it could be spent on developing wind power, solar energy, hydrogen fuel cells, and more fuel efficent vehicles.
But you see "BIG OIL" doesn't want that, because they can't control the wind, the sun, hydrogen production, or CAFE standards as easily as they can our "elected" officials.
Mama use to say, "Oil is like any other illegal drug. The addicts are you and I, the pushers are "Big Oil", and the government can't do a damn thing about either because they're all being paid off."
Think about that the next time you fill up at the gas station and the young American who will die for the greasy, slimy, interests of "BIG OIL".
"Its about energy, stupid! Energy has always been the basis for any economy, stupid!"
