War is very profitable for the oil industry. DRILL DRILL DRILL at $140 a barrel...

Why does the oil industry want every inch of american land and sea leased to them even though they've already got 80% of land and 30% of the sea leased and they're not drilling on it already? They don't want to drill to lower prices at the pump, they want to drill at $140 a barrel or more and republicans are toting their water for them by not signing onto the one bill that will lower the price of oil today, the anti speculation bill. Why would they support a bill that would reduce these profits for the oil industry, their sugar daddies? i ask you all to call your senators and tell them to move and vote yes on the anti speculation bill before their 6 week august break. Tell them not to leave us with these high prices while they run off to collect more money from their rich contributors before the election in november. that toll free number is 1-800-828-0498.
