GREED!

While we are talking about oil company GREED today in Congress, remember that the federal government gets 18.4 cents on every gallon of gasoline, and 22.4 cents per gallon on diesel fuel. And we're not even talking about what the states add on.

You don't have to be a mathematical genius to figure out that's alot of money going to the federal government every day - and the Feds didn't have to drill for any oil, refine it, or distribute it so you can have it in your car every morning.

Democrats want the tax breaks given to big oil ($18 billion over 10 years) to renewable energy sources. But when liberal Democrats in Massachusetts had to a chance to put up a wind turbine farm, the project called Cape Wind off of Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket, they didn't want to see an ugly wind turbine farm off their coast!

Liberals are always like this. The only way they can get people to use reusable energy is to force people to use renewable energy - while exempting themselves from such rules they impose on everybody else. Algore denounces anti-global warming critics but has yet to give up his private corporate jet trips all around the world to promote less fuel consumption.

Just remember there are two sides to every story - and the more you learn about the liberal side, the more you're not going to like it.

"they didn't want to see an ugly wind turbine farm off their coast" -- a clear example of NIMBY ("not in my back yard").
