On Friday, Rush was asking how five repubs could undermine the efforts of clearing our own drilling for crude.
He remembered to "follow the money" but he didn't go fur enuff...
I cannot speak for the other senators, but as for Thune, I am pretty sure I can say he is bought and owned by the ethanol/corn farmers lobby. If, and when, we start drilling our own oil, there won't be much call for using corn liquor to run our vehicles.
I was one of the SDakotans who pushed to get rid of Daschle, and get Thune into the sinate...now, I am wondering what happened.
When Thune was running for office, he purported to be a conservative; and now that he is in the seat of power, he is acting just like a liberal...his pet projects are farm subsidies and ethanol.
Not to mention, how he was bragging about getting the tax rebate passed...that ain't conservative; that's bout as liberal as any of them can be.
We attribute the word "honorable" to members of con-gress, which I believe is a draw back to the days of England and the aristocracy...as far as I am concerned, there has not been much proof coming out of the con-gress to show that they deserve the word "honorable".
That's about all I'm gonna say about that!
