I wonder if these people would be as hot for the jobs if they only made 11 bucks an hour doing it?
I'll give you 1 guess and only 1 guess so use it wisely.

Well, I do know that Al Gore has Occidental (sp?) Oil in his family.

However, large parts of the problem stem from the fact that we resort to buying outside the country when we should be drilling our own. The fact that the US has weakened so much is no help at all.

Drill at home. Build more refineries.

I think in the political sense it's a lose lose situation. If you advocate domestic drilling, you're automatically labeled as being in league with big business and are advocating the destruction of the environment. If you express concerns regarding potential environmental impacts you're labeled as an Al Gore yuppie alarmist. I remember in college, I lived on the complete opposite side of campus from the Oceanography department so everyday on my way to the lab I had to walk clear across campus. During the spring time when all the activists are out in force you learn to time your crossing in between class periods when everyone is out or go around. I mean those people are like gum on the bottom of your shoe. Some are more agreeable while most you just don't even want to talk to.
