don't let them snow you

bush is crying for the opening of the alaska wild life refuge as well as off shore areas for oil drilling, all with the promise of lowering rising gas prices and thus taking the strain off the backs of hard working citizens. someone nominate him for an oscar. please! when has bush ever been concerned for the well being of average americans? it is average americans getting killed in iraq and let's not forget how he misled us into that catastrophe. i know we are all hurting and we want a magic little pill that POOF lowers gas prices but allowing big oil into those areas will not solve our crisis. it will take years to begin to drill in those areas and gas prices will stay inflated. there is no relief coming. bush's proposal means one thing and one thing only and that is more money for the greedy oil guys and we all know bush is one of them. they want to tell you that it is safe to drill in those areas but we know accidents happen and the potential for an ecological disaster to occur is simply too great a risk to run for some pipe dream that might lower gas prices a couple of cents years into the future. they are missing the point. if we put our ingenuity behind alternative energy sources then years into the future, it won't matter if gas prices come down because we won't be dependent upon oil. this is a ruse people and we have to make some noise. does it seem odd to you that they just voted to extend tax breaks to oil companies but did not vote to renew tax breaks to alternative energy prospects? this should be a red flag. don't let this administration dupe you yet again by blaming the democrats for rising prices based on the fact that they won't let big oil in. never mind the fact that we ought to making some radical changes in the interest of global warming or all our coastal cities are going to be under water. call your elected officials and tell them NO to yet another asinine plan by the bush administration.

i wish i had something profound to say over the latest nagin antic or something witty with which to hold the interests of my one or two readers but i do not. i'm just sick and horrified. i'm saddened and exasperated. i never voted for the man and thus i never expected much but the fact that he is taking his wife out for their anniversary on tax payers' money really is a new low for the bastard. this is a man who at the very least pays lip service to wanting to resurrect new orleans and he is dining out with our money. shame on him. whatever happened to the self sacrifice of public office? my god! but i am sick of the corruption. this act is or should be an impeachable offense and yet no one seems to be raising the kind of ruckus needed to oust this pathetic excuse for a mayor. we ,as a city just sit idly by and allow our elected officials to continue to get away with the most egregious of actions...hell, in some instances we even elect them back into office. i swear but i am losing my faith and i believe that we just get what we fucking deserve.
