Wanting to end dependence on foreign oil is a racist position. ]Edited on Tue Jul-08-08 09:45 PM by RGBolen
Wanting to end dependence on oil is a fine position to take but wanting to end our "dependence on foreign oil," comes from either a racists mindset or extreme nationalism. Of course there isn't really a way to determine which of those is more vile. If we are dependent on oil what does it matter to what human beings we pay? Of course we pay many people who live in North America for our oil, but that isn't who people who want to "end our dependence on foreign oil," see when they say that.
I have to say I wasn't surprised to see Mr. Pickens spouting such garbage on CNN today.
I'm pretty certain that there is a 12 step program that will help people learn to overcome their dependence on foreign oil. You first have to admit that you're powerless over petroleum and your consumption has become unmanagable.
