Dissent is the highest form of patriotism

September 11, 2008

Today seems like the appropriate day for some outrage. This from an well-known oil & gas industry analyst (= the opposite of a liberal)

A stronger dollar will lead to oil-price weakness, as well as a happier OPEC. OPEC wants oil in the $60-70 range to avoid hastening any changes to alternative energy.

OPEC = Algeria, Angola, Ecuador, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Libya, Nigeria, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, Venezuela = some of these are our favorite terrorist hotbeds and funding sources for the America-hating crazies. They wants us… no, they NEED us to stay under their unstable thumbs. They know that just low enough energy prices will not allow our free market to embrace renewable energy sources.

They have to relish the idea of us drilling into our meager sources, invoking gas tax holidays, and tapping into emergency reserves because it will keep us hooked on the crank long enough for our children and grandchildren to get stuck with the economic burden of our junkie ways. Best parents ever.

Adding to the insanity, there’s no guarantee that our regional petroleum sources wouldn’t be sold to the highest bidder, probably in Asia or other places where the currency is stronger. As such, we will be compelled to continue to get the vast majority of our oil from OPEC nations. FANFUCKINGTASTIC. When politicians talk about fighting terrorism AND promoting a fossil fuel economy in the same breath, I just want to tear my hair out. I should be pretty bald by November.

Bald, like the soaring eagle John Ashcroft sings about…

Boobie Bad!
