NEVER FORGET: Bush and Cheney are OIL MEN
No matter how they spin what is going on, never forget that Iraq, the energy policy done in secret by Cheney and his boys are all part of the plan to bring the non-elites and workers of this country into line. Never forget. They are wealthy. They don't feel the pain of high price of oil, they reap benefits. Never forget that the rich don't really give a damn about you when they can always get cheap labor or outsource money-making industries to folks outside the country.

NEVER FORGET: They don't give a shit if your sons and daughters are maimed or killed in fighting the wars to protect THEIR interests. THEY DON'T GIVE A SHIT!!!!

2. Never Forget Cheney RAN Halliburton...It's all so obvious it's ludicrous.
If it wasn't so monumentally tragic, it would be awesome.

3. Of course first & foremost they're oilmen, that's why we're in Iraq as
Bush said so quickly defending the oil companies a few days ago, that there's nothing the government can do except investigate price gouging? -- How can Bush make such a so quickly before anyone has looked into the true reasons for astonomical gas price fixing??

they owe their old money to oil but the new money? They're stealing it right now from the treasury, plus loans.

6. Bush Rejects Tax on Oil Companies' Profits With gasoline at over $3 a
gallon in some areas, Bush said there was "no evidence" of price-gouging of consumers.

"These oil prices are a wake-up call. We're dependent on oil. We need to get off oil." -- Jimmy Carter said the same thing in 1977. - addicted to oil?!! has anyone ever heard anything more rediculous??

7. Yeah, here's something more ridiculous
In the same speech where he said "we're dependent on oil, we need to get off oil," he also said we need to loosen regulations so oil companies can build more oil refineries!

9. We should start equating war profiteering with TREASON
If we have to go to war to protect their interests (because you know rich, Christian fundamentalist war mongerers have our best interests at heart!), then those fuckers should be held accountable.
