So here is my basic premise
Exxon mobil, chevron, bp, etc etc collectively 'big oil' makes billions a year. They are huge contributors to the politicians and therefore it's in everyone best interest to maintain the status quo with ice.
But the bigger issue here is the military. If we didn't send billions a day to places like Iran, Saudi Arabia, venezuala and other countries where most of the people (or at least the leaders) hate westerners and at least a small, but lethal, minority actually want to see us killed, there would be no reason to have nearly as big an army as we do.
So in other words big oil isn't an end to itself, it also is a necessity to support the large military machine weve created.
If the tea party was serious about shrinking deficits, they would advocate 100% electric car usage and then we could shrink the army in half.
And for those of you with family in the military or relatives from new York, this isn't some fantasy. This is real life.
What a sick society we live in. We send countries with a stated interest in killing up billions a day and then spend billions a day defending ourselves against them and sending our children to die.
I can't understand why someone (certainly more eloquent than me) can't put together a cogent discussion on this topic and get the country talking. This isn't that complicated.
Look - a new topic with no reference to center consoles.....
