Pelosi is as crazy as Reid

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi wants to “save the planet,” and therefore will not allow an up or down vote in the House to open up offshore oil drilling. Apparently, Madame Speaker agrees with Crazy Harry Reid that “we’re hurting the planet” by using oil, and we ought to “stop using fossil fuels.”

How do we “stop using” antifreeze, anesthetics, anything plastic, bandages, basketballs and candles? Detergents, dice or epoxy glue? Paint, guitar strings or insect repellent? Lipstick, life jackets or roofing? Shaving cream, shower curtains or toilet seats? These and hundreds of other common everyday items in our lives are made, in whole or part, with oil.

If they mean “stop using gasoline,” that’s only 19.5 gallons in a 42 gallon barrel. The rest of that barrel is spun into nearly everything you see around you from medicine to furniture to clothing – everything that makes our standard of living possible. “Stop using” oil makes no sense. This is shrieking madness.  Read more by Roger Hedgecock at WorldNetDaily

  1. Hey, it’s totally possible to stop using oil, just make everything out of carbon nanotubes, the price will be a little high, a mere 1,000,000$usd per toilet seat. Bleh, I hate politicians that say don’t do that and have no solution or methods/practices towards them. If they invested heavily in battery technologies we’d get cars/trucks that wouldn’t just equivalent to gasoline, they’d be rockets in comparison, people would be able to go longer distances, transport costs would go down, people would get to work faster and we’d have an economic boom, but NOOO, lets weatherstrip houses.

  2. And what do you do with all the batteries once they die? Nobody talks about this. They pollute worse than C2O
