I swear. How can people be so retarded?

Bee County leaders urging boycott of Exxon Mobil

So this pinhead judge in Bee County, TX., who is obviously ignorant of ho gas prices come about, is supportive of a resolution to screw over local business owners. That's freakin' brilliant. They need to realize that there ain't a whole lot anybody can do about the prices and a boycott accomplishes even less.

Besides, when has a boycott ever worked? It doesn't.

What I want to know is that since the government on state and federal level  makes more than FOUR TIMES what the oil companies make per dollar spent, wouldn't it be more prudent to boycott the government? Also, based on cents per dollar of sales, banks, pharmaceutical companies, software companies etc. are making ass loads more than the oil companies. Why aren't people going apeshit spicey gonzo about that?

To add insult to injury, now Republicans are acting like liberals:

Senate Panel Demands Oil Co. Tax Records


Whenever oil prices go up, it's time to haul in the oil companies and investigate them for practicing in a free market. Each time they investigate the oil companies, what do they ever find? Not a DAMN thing. So what's the point? We blow a wad of cash on investigations that never turn up anything. What's te point? Further, there ain't a whole hell of a lot they can do about the price of oil.

So what's the deal? Political pandering in an election year. It goes without saying. Here's a thought, instead of biting the pillow for the incredibly ignorant in this country and pretending to get your panties in a twist on the Hill, why not try informing your voters on the issue. Explain to them that wasting their money on an investigation that they KNOW won't turn up anything and explain to them how oil pricing works. I know I'd rather vote for someone who's rational and doesn't roll along with the wave of mass hysteria, but that's just me.

BTW, as I understand it, there's 1.5 MILLION acres of ANWR which was set aside for oil exploration when it was created in the 70s. So what's the deal?

Further, could somebody PLEASE explain to me why Mexico and Cuba can drill in the Gulf of Mexico, but we can't?
