This is a test. It is only a test of the Emergency Intelligence Network.
Now that the birthers and deathers have been laughed back to their caves, another conspiracy theory is developing deep inside of those dark, dank enclosures in which they huddle. Here’s the newest conspiracy cooked up to diss the President: he hates the oil companies. Imagine that. Well, in fact, so do I and I have a feeling that tens of millions of Americans are lined up behind me waiting to raise their hands with a ‘me too!’
Here’s the latest loonyness :
Yes, let’s defend the oil companies against this terrible president who wants to ‘bilk’ them out of their $4 billion tax break. “It’s wonderful news that the five companies are making money.” Not only that but good news to the hundreds of thousands of people employed by them.”
So, round three has commenced. Round 1- birth certificate; round 2- death of bin Laden; round 3- discrediting the oil companies. By the way, at the end of the post by Common Sense, he has a link to that famous McCain/Palin mantra, DRILL BABY, DRILL! Yes, that one. Gulp.
So here’s the test. Who knows why DRILL BABY DRILL! is one of the most idiotic pieces of propaganda that right-wing lunatics have absorbed?
Extra Credit. For 10 extra points, who can explain how and when oil got onto the Commodity Futures market?
Extra Credit. For 15 extra points, who can name the GOP Senator who screwed the American citizens through a loophole in this commodities market?
