New Rule

Anyone who uses the phrase "Drill, Baby, Drill" (without irony) shall henceforth be referred to as a gashole.

(Inspired by news from TC that there's a new documentary coming out.)


[Added] Follow-up.

[Added2] Watch an interview of co-director Jeremy Wagener by Thom Hartmann (about 10 min). Thanks to TC in the Comments.

So, teaching my kid English verb conjugations makes me a "gashole"?

Hmm... now that you mention it... well, you didn't mention it, but I know you're thinking it...

LOL!

Maybe you should have said "times tables," out of pity for my mental feebleness, but I did get it eventually.

Don't get me going on math. Here in Japan it's about the *only* subject I can realistically "help" my kid with. She hasn't figured out yet that no, I'm not actually furiously sending emails on my cell phone when she does her math homework. I'm using the bloody calculator function...
I was a Humanities student, yeah...

It seems that the oil companies have long term contracts for oil at a fixed price or they pump their own from their own wells, so that the daily price of crude oil doesn't affect gas prices. They don't buy it on the market. It's an excuse to raise prices and make more profit because their cost doesn't go up.

The documentarian was interviewed on the Thom Hartman show yesterday.

Thanks, TC. I updated a post with a link to the interview.
