A Healthy Dose Liberal Irony
Yesterday a bunch of environmentalists, “Kayaktavists” in Seattle had a protest. They were against the drilling of oil in Alaska. Really? Why does anyone in Seattle think that they have anything to say about another state (Alaska)? Where do they think that their oil or gasoline actually comes from?
They came in automobiles fueled by oil, wearing clothing made from oil, to protest oil, in kayaks made from oil. Then they tweeted their photos on phones made from oil and then drove home.
It wouldn’t hurt my feelings if gas went up to $15 bucks a gallon. Lets see what happens to the economy then. Lets see what happens to their job at the book store, Starbucks coffee, or the organic community store when gas is higher. Do they ever think it through… if by some miracle, they are successful?
