    If Oil is destroying the planet? Then WHY does the planet manufacture it?

    I'm guessing it's similar to George Carlin's theory about Plastic. The Earth Likes it - it's just another one of her children.

    Oil is as natural as water. As Land, as anything else we see before us. It's what we DO with it...Responsibly [I might add]...that defines it's worth to us.

    As with anything the Earth gives us, is there for us to use for the Human species, and others to survive. There was a time not so long ago when we used rivers for toilets...we cleaned up our act (At least this country has)...

    Stewardship folks. Good stewardship is the key. NOT the non-use of a resource there naturally.

    One might ask the same thing about liberal Democrats. If they keep screwing up the country, why are they allowed to remain in politics?

    I see. So it is your precept that MAN...and especially the 'Eevill Corporations' set out to destroy that which sustains them?

    Do *YOU* really want to have that as your answer? Seriously? It is my HOPE that this is *Tongue-In-Cheek*

    Here's a quick history lesson for you. Way back in 1932 a communist newspaper I have decried the fact that only 2% of this countries population controlled 76% of the nations wealth. Then, the democratic party gained control of both houses of congress and did so for a continuous 40 years, they also controlled the presidency for a large percentage of that time as well.

    So what do you think the percentages were after that 40 year run? ONE percent of the population now controls 90% So who were the democrats working for? 'Cause they sure weren't working for the little guy!
