The McCain-Clinton gas holiday proposal is a perfect example of what energy expert Peter Schwartz of Global Business Network describes as the true American energy policy today: “Maximize demand, minimize supply and buy the rest from the people who hate us the most.”
This article in the NYTimes today helped summarize some of my recent fuming over oil/gas prices and big oils suspect relationship with our federal government. Without going in to research references here, I will just throw out a few historical generalities that one of the main reasons our government has no answers or concern about new energy sources, gas emissions, or the price of oil is...THEY ARE ON THE RECEIVING END OF THESE HISTORIC PROFITS! I have a few bones to pick with this Bush administration of 8 years...but this is one of the ugliest smelling aspects of their agenda. They have little or no interest in cleaner fuels and limiting oil use. Lets face it, the Bush family for 3+ generations has been all about profits from oil and gas. As I mentioned on another thread here, I would love to have such a profitable business over which I also happen to rule over the government regulations of said business. How can you lose?
Unfortunately, we Americans, and even further...the extended world community...is losing to these slimy big business oil barons and companies. And talk about anti-patriotic...raking in these record profits and then sharing them with our Arab enemies...who happen to be funding much of the "Jihad" our soldiers are dying for! Does anyone else see the connection here? I am just totally disgusted with our country's lack of leadership on these energy issues...and this government's obvious hidden agendas in Iraq and elsewhere. These actions and motivations are traitorous in my opinion.
Based on this weeks “McCain-Clinton gas proposal”, I am going to have to update my regard for Obama…the only one of the candidates who has not supported this jackass resolution to ease consumer cost while doing nothing on the fundamental problem of clean energy costs. Is there ANY sanity left in government ANYWHERE? UGH!!!
