But, there's been a niggling prod at the back of my head, ever since I heard about the oil spill in the Gulf. That prod says:
- How convenient. Obama didn't want to drill, but was pressured into it. Now, thanks to the spill, ALL drilling may be eliminated due to fears of an environmental catastrophe.
- Funny, although the cause has been speculated about, the word "terrorism" hasn't been mentioned. Oh, well, I'm SURE terrorism is a myth, anyway. Everyone, including radical Islamicists and Environmental wackos, loves us.
- What are the odds that, just as the push to start getting that Cap & Trade bill moving again, an energy-related crisis would erupt? Which, of course, provides cover for Congress to pass the bill.
- Lastly, JUST as unemployment benefits end, there's a new crisis that has to be dealt with, and the funds can be approved without political penalty. Hey, maybe we can employ some potential voters with EPA funds! Win-Win!
