The Senate voted Tuesday to open 8.3 million acres of federal waters in the central Gulf of Mexico to oil and gas drilling, setting up a confrontation with the House which wants even more drilling in waters now off-limits.
something tells me that record profits for Big Oil are never enough. Who gives a fuck about raising the minimum wage $2.10 over a period of three years when our poor oppressed oil companies are crying due to all the condemnation we Americans heap upon them for
So basically we have to drill in the gulf so that Big Oil will have an excuse to say prices will go down. After all, didn't the Iraq war drive down prices too? Aren't we paying $3.19 for three gallons of gas now? No wait, that's per gallon?! Hell, it's hard work ripping off the American consumer!
