32. And not just *any* oil!
Heating oil!!!

Completely useless for making gasoline so keeping it off the market can't affect the supply in the least, which is sure to cause an immense spike in gas prices, in Europe, harming every blue-blooded American citizen. (Surely we're good, Democratic-blue-blooded citizens, not that nasty Republican-red-blooded kind? So let's hear it for the blue-bloods!)

The real issue is how will those Europeans stay warm through the frigid, European summer, where temperatures are expected to plummet into the 70s and 80s, or with global warming causing ever lower temperatures, even the 90s or 100s?

The cruelty of it all. This commodity, crucially scarce in the early sumemr months, should be distributed at once to help the poor Germans heat their hovels--if they're not at a compfortable 98.6 degrees 24/7, it's a crime against humanity.

How dare we allow Chase Morgan to not let European peasants stay comfortably hot this summer?
