I HOPE ALL YOU SOB'S REACH DANTE'S 'NINTH CIRCLE'!

THE PIC? A NASH 'METROPOLITAN' WAS PRODUCED WAY, WAY BACK IN THE MID-FIFTIES! IT GOT AROUND 50 MILES PER GALLON! THE 'TECHNOLOGY' HAS EXISTED FOR OVER 50 YEARS!

BUT ... THOSE 'RAT-BASTARDS' WOULD NOT HAVE SOLD AS MUCH GASOLINE - WOULD THEY?






Dear Oil ‘Barons’


© - Tom Hyland - 2/28/12


This is for ALL YOU Greedy ‘Rat-Bastards!
ALL The ‘Good Ole Boys’ Down in Tex-ASS -
Bush Sr. - Bush Jr. - n’ ALL The ‘Lil Bushes’ -
N’ ALL the Other ‘Oil Barons’ Located Elsewhere:


YOU have RAPED the American Public For a Half-Century Now!
YOU are Destroying Our Economy!
YOU have Amassed Fortunes in Your Friggin’ Dynasties!
YOU are ALL ‘Sons-A-Bitches!


How Much GREED is Enough?
How Much Money Will YOU Take Down to HELL with YOU?
YES - When YOU Die - YOU Will Surely Burn in HELL!
Let us Consider Some Facts:


YOU Control Oil Prices!
YOU Control Gas Prices!
YOU Control Congress!
Another Bunch of Greedy ‘Rat-Bastards’!


YOU Are Strangling Small Businesses!
YOU Are Crippling The ‘Middle Class!
YOU Are Driving Up FOOD Prices!
YOU Are Stifling Our Economy’s Growth!


YOU Are Destroying the Oceans!
YOU Are Poisoning The Environment!
YOU Are Killing Wildlife!
And - YOU Simply ‘Don’t Give A Rat’s Ass’!


And - Guess What?
YOU Still Are Not Satisfied!


YOU Are Now ‘Putting Your Fingers In The Pie’!
YOU Want To Control The ‘Alternate Energy’ Market Also!
Solar Energy! Wind Energy! Nuclear Energy!
YOU Have SQUASHED Inventions For Decades!


YOU Are America’s NEMESIS!
YOU Are More Fanatical Than -
ALL The Damned Terrorists in The World!
How In the HELL Do YOU Sleep At Night?


YOU And DETROIT’s Damned Gasoline Combustion Engines -
Have Been Inefficient for Decades!
And - YOU Always Have Known It!
GIMME! GIMME! GIMME!


YOU Have Had The Power To Make America STRONGER!
YOU Can Produce Better Products! Safer Products!
YOU and ‘The Big Three’ Have Been ‘In Cahoots’ for Decades!
And YOU Know It!


All-Electric Cars - Hybrids - Natural Gas Cars -
Could Be Produced And Sold ... CHEAPER!
I’ll Bet YOU ‘Sons-A-Bitches’ Covertly OWN -
Most, if Not ALL The Alternate Energy Companies!


ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!
“WE’RE MAD AS HELL - AND WE WON’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!”

Well I am still stupid enough to drive a full size pickup so I guess I'm part of the problem. You forgot to mention the speculators who fuel the major price spikes. That's greed in its simplest form. Patrick

How Much GREED is Enough?

I doubt that they will stop until there is absoultely nothing left to plunder or pillage. Our 'leaders' won't stop them since they finance their campaigns, and very few citizens seem to care much at all about the raping of our nation - to increase the fortunes of a few.

I'm posting a very sad piece this morning - The Wasteland That We'll Call Home.
Reviewed by Ronald Hull 2/28/2012
I totally agree. My last short story, Revenge of the Gulf, shows how far it can go.

I remember back in the fifties seeing one of those Ramblers and running back to my grandmother and telling her she should buy one. She bought a big 56 Buick Super to waste gas in. I drove a 57 FireDome DeSoto for a while with a hemi that got 20 miles to the gallon for a very large car.

Don't worry, Americans love fads. They'll jump to alternatives faster than Superman once the oil barons jack the price of fuel high enough.
