    (I mean this not as a slight to 3rd coast righties - but a slight to all other
    righties)


    I've noticed that numerous right wingers have taken this wonderful opportunity to extol on the virtues of oil in the midst of an economic and environmental oil caused catastrophe. BTW guys, brilliant timing!

    The interesting thing is I've noticed that so far no righties from the 3rd coast have done so.



    Why is that?

    We, as in the inhabitants of the world, have created a situation where our dependence on oil can't be replaced. The sad fact is that we rely on petroleum for many things, and have not found effective replacements for those things.

    someday.......

    I hate cars...So many people are killed by those contraptions every day.

    They should be outlawed and everyone should ride bicycles everywhere, like they used to in China.

    I think Spidey is developing an obsession about this incident.

    The big picture: we are dependent on oil. Would you rather we get it from our own country or fund terrorists by buying it from the middle east?

    Until we come up with a viable fuel alternative, we have no choice but drill here.

    Any 3rd coasters wanna pipe up on this one? Or is it just those that have nothing at stake in this matter except the continued production of oil for their enjoyment and convenience that wanna extol on the virtues of oil?


    Why is that?

    Do you think that being very pissed and wanting to change something to fix it about this oil spill - and also wanting gas for your car - can be consistent with one another?
