    By the way, me calling out the hypocrisy of the right does not, should not - be taken as me endorsing every action the President has undertaken since his inauguration but the right doesn't do nuance very well so they may not understand such a position.

    Please show the reading audience where I painted "all conservatives" with the negative attributes that you claim.

    I've never seen you do anything else than that. Which is fine, so long as you're able to reveal the hypocrisy of the left as well.

    Closing refineries, hoarding supply, secret agreements between producers, invading oil producing countries, you know, the usual thing that has been happening the last ten years.

    The bigger issue is the lack of new refinery construction, which isn't really part of some dark cabal, its pretty transparent. I'm not sure what you mean by hoarding supply. Generally in off peak periods countries like Saudi Arabia will occasionally keep production at high levels and retain stockpiles so they can react quickly to contract demands and market shifts. What secret agreements? You mean OPEC production quota's? Invading Iraq and increasing net crude production?

    Not a dark cabal?

    You mean Al Queda is real and not an instrument U.S. foreign policy so the Pentagon can invade oil producing countries?

    Yes that is what I'm saying. I can already see its time to duck out of this discussion.

    Yes, yes. Run and hide conservative, or just start a new thread when the discussion gets too hot, or the facts get too REAL for you. Make sure the new thread is based on some cozy FALSE PREMISE to begin with, so respondents have to battle their way back to reality, with all the Republican lies to stymie them in the process. Its the only way Republicans or people like Grim can have a confab, is to begin with a falsehood.
