26. You're so right!

Additionally, we need to be investing in alternative energy instead of playing to the oil companies. They never want to stop making money on oil and gas, even if it kills the planet. It was my belief that with a democratic administration, alternative energy would be our primary focus. Gosh, what happened? Money, that's what happened. Big oil is responsible for major destruction of our world and never pay for it. We still have places in the swamp in Louisiana that have never been cleaned up after oil exploration and drilling occurred here incessantly. This killed off a lot of our hunting, fishing and tourism industries, not to mention the pollution caused to our air, waterways and ground water. What price jobs? Do we want to trade our planet for big oil? They give so little back for this destruction, that profit to us, it's citizens, is negligible. We have the sun and the wind, and they don't pollute. My family still mistrusts gulf seafood. Louisiana has been destroyed by those bastards, big oil! I should add that politicians who accept monetary rewards for selling out Louisiana are as much to blame as big oil. We have some good ones, but they are few and far between.
