Drill, baby, drill!
Japan is counting on us!
And there you have it: the Bush administration and the McCain/Palin campaign are insisting that we need to drill more in order to get us out of our energy crunch, because the stuff is so scarce. So what do they do? They let Alaska sell 98.1 billion cubic feet of natural gas to Japan, even though the price of natural gas is supposed to rise by 22% this winter. Of course, the Governor of Alaska approved the sale. I guess this is what's known as "taking on big oil companies," huh?
Can we all finally agree that drilling for more oil and gas won't end the energy crisis? That it will only serve to put more oil and gas on the international market, doing nothing to affect the price of the stuff one whit? Or are we just going to see more lying about it on the part of the McCain campaign and other Republicans in Congress?
Lies, you say? Well, if that's what you want to do, okay. But it won't help, just so you know.
