On the take

Dear Editor:

The Republican TV Network known as Fox (lying) News has sunk to a new low. It is blaming Obama for an expected $5 per gallon gas price this summer.

Have these right-wing hatemongers finally gone nuts? Outrageous oil prices are a Bush-Cheney legacy. Don’t forget these two war producers come from the oil business – big time.

Comrades, ask yourself, “Self, why can’t Americans kick the oil and coal habit?” My answer is, “America’s Congress, the most ‘carbon-friendly’ lawmakers money can buy.” How about bribing congressional members with IPOs – making them rich overnight. It appears that the brakes may have been put on the “legal bribe.” You’ll soon see that the lobbyists will get around, under, through or over this attempt at honesty.
