Everybody knows that oil drilling off the coastline of Florida will not decrease the price. I hope the Democrats in Congress are not fooled!
In all actually, prices will rise. The oil companies will have to pay for the oil rigs and increase prices in the hope of finding oil.
Let's look at why oil prices have risen the way they have.
If you all can recall, when Dick Chaney first became a vice presidential candidate he resigned his position with the oil company Haliburton. Haliburton paid Chaney $20 million in severance pay. Not only did he receive severance pay, but he also receives a pension. When Dick Chaney became president of the United States of America, it was pay back time. As a result Haliburton received a no bid contract to work in Iraq.
Then there is the connection with the troops in Iraq. The Executive Branch said that Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. Was that really a disguise to invade Iraq in order to enrich the pockets of the oil barons? Are troops dying in order to enrich the pockets of the oil barons?
I hope that I am entitled to freedom of speech and that the Republican administration does punish me because of how I chose to exercise that right.
I know that the Republican administration has the power to cause people to not get raises or can cause people to get fired.
I guess I need protection from the Republican administration. I know the Republican administration can cause me to suffer repercussions.
This missive was a little rushed. My mother suffered a heart attack last night, and I am anxious to get back to the hospital.
