    So easy for you to imply, so easy for you to back out of your claim.

    If you're looking for an answer to how or why this happened look no farther; it happened because of our dependence on oil. No dependence, no problems with spills.

    We're never going to be independent of oil. Get that pipe dream out of your head. Oil is somewhere in the process of making basically everything today.

    You implied that Cheney was responsible from that nice little story you posted. The little comment that you posted with the story only implies that you agreed with the article.

    Not true at all we can at least have other things as well. Solar powers, and Nuclear power ect. We at least could also use other techniques for engines to run on.

    I think he said the Cheney is implied to be responsible in that story. She never claimed that Cheney was responsible the implication. That is what I got from the story at least.

    Everything plastic that you own is because of oil. Oil is used in all of our machines. It's not just about energy. That's why I said that an idea that we are going to be independent of oil is just a pipe-dream.

    So, you recognize your error; I've made no claims.

    As for your fun parlor game of pretending to be able to read minds, I suggest you have your inference detector checked; it's defective.

    Lol, I'm sorry for calling you out on your darting implications. You can't handle the responsibility for making bold claims, so you developed a defense mechanism whereby you can cop-out. You just never directly state anything. Implying is so much easier because when you're called out, you can say 'I never claimed that.' Must be a fun game.
