Great. Just what I needed to see.

Turns out the Democrats in Congress want to nationalize the oil refineries "so [Congress] could better control the flow of the oil supply." First, it isn't like there have been shortages of refined oil. It's just expensive, but that's because the raw material that goes INTO the refineries is more expensive these days. Controlling the refineries won't have any impact on cost. Second, it's as if these idiots didn't learn anything from the fall of communism. Plus, given that they don't want us to either (a) import oil from abroad or (b) drill for any of our known oil reserves, one wonders what the hell these morons think they will be refining?

Good God, the people running the government in this country appear to be getting dumber by the minute. I'd consider moving to Canada but I enjoy my freedom of bitching speech too much. And do you know how hard it is to make it when you're living in a freakin' snow bank?
