Don't Cry for the Sea, Lars* and Tina...

...offshore drilling won't effect you. You can still be pro-active, in a way that puts your money where your mouth is: stop driving cars, burning candles, using plastic products of any kind ("pleather" comes to mind), and quitting your ridiculous "Burning Man" act, which causes lots of pollution.

And the one-tenth of one percent portion of the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge, or ANWR that will be used for low-environmental impact drilling for oil won't effect you at all, nor will it bother the natives--human and animal alike.

Find another issue to propagandize, you opponents of U.S. oil drilling! Don't bother to check facts; rather, stay as ignorant and small-minded as you are, for you have had success in the past with your intimidation tactics. And besides, if you think it is so evil, why on earth do you wish oil-drilling upon other countries where your great allies reside? Are you just more hypocrites who feign concern, while crying, "Not In My Back Yard!"
That's right, you're not renegades--you are just namby-pamby NIMBYs!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said today that she cannot go along with the president's proposal to become energy-independent, "because of environmental concerns"--I think what she really means is that she is concerned about being threatened by a vicious constituency whose support she enjoys: technologically ignorant Luddites who call themselves "evironmentalists". Yes, they are a nasty, violent minority--the people whose knowledge of innovations in the oil-drilling business represents a vacuum of colossal proportions. They are the people who set fire to an Oregon SUV dealership, causing more pollution than any modern oil-drilling operation possibly could.
