Gasoline Mileage = National Security

A group of former national security officials has joined with environmentalists to push for better gas mileage. America’s oil addiction is a serious national security threat. This groups wants Bush to dedicate $1 billion to developing lighter, more fuel-efficient vehicles. This organization includes defense and intelligence officials from the past three administrations.

The group also dismisses hydrogen-powered vehicles — which Bush keeps falling back on — since they will take decades to develop. They stress that stricter mileage standards could cut our oil imports in half, and that drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge is not a solution.

One member of the group said “It's strange bedfellows but this is actually the real American majority. It's common sense.”

It’s about time. Traditionally, national security has always been the big smokescreen whenever there’s a debate about drilling; anyone who’s against drilling in a national park loves Osama bin Laden and wants to have another 9/11 attack. When the debate shifts to fuel economy, the national security bugaboo suddenly vanishes, and the whole debate gets framed as a bunch of treehuggers threatening America’s Free Enterprise system.

Finally, a little focus. Someone more “credible” than an environmentalist is spelling out the obvious: fuel economy is a national security issue.

The AARP campaign against Social Security “reform” is outspending the White House. If you want to bring 1929 back, sorry, you're being outspent nearly three to one by AARP. Uh oh...

Let's speculate what USA Next will come up with for their next anti-AARP hatchet job. Let’s see — this is kinda fun — picture a group of AARP members attending a black mass, and one of the candles sets the American flag on fire, and then the camera shows some AARP members engaged in some un-Godly, sick, perverted acts with animals while simultaneously ejaculating on the Bible.

Think that's about par for the course? What do you think USA Next has up their sleeve? Anyone care to guess?

Hey, those wouldn't be national security official "activists" would they? God I hate when they go against the party line and go "active".

Lets see, what could be the next great come back......John Kerry is walking down Main Street and a Vietnam vet with no legs, in a wheelchair waving an American flag accidently bumps into him. He falls out of his chair, flag lands on the ground, John baby falls on the flag. John rolls over with the flag now attached to his back to help the disabled vet up off the ground. At that moment the picture of the year is taken.

The radical right screams the left is trying screw people with disabilities just like their trying to do with Terri. And the swift boat vets announce that Kerry is f&*%ing the Vietnam vet, again!


Thanks for stopping by Bring It On!!

Hi friends! I wonder if the psychopath anonymous here is the same I have seen elsewhere? Seems to be the same lack of knowledge and same lack of understanding I am accustomed to seeing. Bush doesn't WANT energy reform. He is an OIL baron and he is PROFITING on the high prices. It's not in his interest to threaten the oil companies with investigations as to why they charge such high prices when there is not a true shortage. This shortage is made-up. The only thing effecting supply is the Chinese increasing consumption. The yare not using enough to justify our companies charging as much as they do. Look at the facts.

Great post and great site! You've been blogmarked.

Yes, "big oil" and our dependency on oil, along with our pourous borders are the two achilles heels of America and the GOP doesn't give one crap about it because of the $$$ they rake in off of both problems! Until the "common man" with common sense takes back over his country, get USED to it!

Jet: Yup, senior citizens are organized and they get out the vote. Rove has met his match.

Anonymous: This site is for intelligent discussion, not mindless namecalling. Stupid fucks like you get their comments deleted.

OK Democrat: It's too bad the country is being run by oil barons. Their industry will start fading at some point, but they'll be kicking and screaming 'til the last minute.

Those are our 2 Achilles' Heels all right, our oil dependency and porous border. Scary combination.
