Happy Dependence Day
On today, July 4th, our Independence Day, I regretfully find our great nation not only dependent but addicted to the ebony elixir that has congested our once red veins with black. As gas prices across the country rise ever so slowly toward five dollars per gallon, we are shamed into submission by not only the Saudis and other oil-producing nations of the world but by our own elected leaders. If it weren't for the President's close friends whose abilities to mask his failures with patriotic smoke and mirrors, the White House would be nearly painted black with all of the oil left behind from the bottoms of our leaders' shoes. The blatant fact remains that our President prior to his election was not only governor of Texas, a state that holds over two-million oil pumps to her veins, but was a failed oil man in numerous companies. Our Vice-President was CEO of Haliburton which was granted first and unopposed rights to Iraq after its invasion, which happens to contain the world's second largest oil reserve beneath its sand. The man who is in charge of our country's energy policy still holds over half a million shares in the company he once ran. And Iraq, this administration's most public blunder, was invaded on false pretenses and the fact that two oil men ordered the hit on a country with no shortage of that black cocaine cannot be coincidence. Now their answer to our rising oil prices, which is due to peak oil (apparently mother nature has deemed oil a waning fad), is to drill domestically. If profits to this administration are not direct I am confident that lobbyists are filling in the financial void behind our backs. Either way, the criminality of this administration is beyond the obvious and I can only hope that our next will do well to mend the wounds opened by President Bush and his Vice-President Cheney. I highly doubt George Washington saw his presidency as a means for monetary exploits and profit. Have a happy 4th.
