74. If it doesn't use lots of OIL republican fucks will fight ALL alternative transportation
Edited on Wed Mar-23-11 03:33 PM by GreenTea
behind the scenes, using their made up lying groups with deceptive names, fueling money to defeat ballot propositions, legislation, state & local governments and the people will, all in their greedy efforts to continue keeping their OIL as the energy we must depend on. (This also goes for the way OIL corporations and republicans behind the scenes defeat & cut any funding for clean renewable alternative energy sources).

These greedy bastards would rather handcuff this country so their OIL sells for the highest price possible - more roads for cars but no mass transportation, they'll fight it....So what if OIL pollutes, potions the air we breath is far too costly....Just as long as they get theirs.
