I'm horrified that we're in a predicament where our economic survival hinges on alliances with homicidal dictators who have more control over the US economy through OPEC than our own elected leaders. I'm disappointed that my fellow Americans can't see what a disastrous state of affairs that is. I'm baffled that the best solution many will only get behind is adding is adding a few percentage points to the global oil supply under the fallacy that if we drilled for more oil in Alaska and Canada, it would replace homicidal dictator oil when all it would do strengthen the homicidal dictator position by fortifying oil's oligopoly status over personal transportation, continue to finance terrorism and anti-American propaganda that inspires terrorist recruits and at best forces the Middle East into stronger alliances with China and Russia instead of us thus weakening the United States on the global stage all under a mission to thumb their noses at environmentalist wackos.
Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011
