    I do my research. Notice both Canada and MX are net EXPORTERS.

    Screw them.
    No one is forcing you to stop sacrificing at the gas pump if that's what you wish to continue. Personally, we have saved a lot from the switch to hybrid cars in 2000, and will save even more with our next car purchase, an electric car. Screw the oil companies!

    Mexico exports in 1 year just a little more than we consume in 1 day! Big whoop!

    Screw'em, huh? What about the 300+ pounds of plastic that go into making your car? You better make the dealer replace the plastic with wood and metal. Oh, wait...then you would be a slave to the steel industry and too many trees would get cut down.

    45% of the oil consumed in the US is for gasoline. 4.6% of the oil consumed in the US is for plastics. You do the math!

    Can't screw the oil companies if you buy a car with all that plastic in it.

    It doesn't do that. I can't see any way it would hurt me at all.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That is silly. I want the oil companies to extract oil.

    I would love for cars to not run on oil.

    Not funding crazy religious nut job death worshipers would be awesome.

    So, you alone represent every other American? You're way more awesomer than I though, Boo.

    What's good for Boo, is good for every other sum-bitch in the country. Am I right?
