While I realize that no one has given a New York politician high marks for either intelligence or honesty since Teddy Roosevelt, Representative Maurice Hinchey, Democrat, New York, yes sir, takes the proverbial cake and eats it too—with his mouth open.... no doubt “…drunk, hiccupping… dribbling streams of liquor and bits of men...,” as Homer wrote describing the Cyclops.
How incredibly stupid is Komrad Hinchey? “We (the government) should own the refineries. Then we can control how much gets out into the market.”
Ones blood begins to boil…
No New York pol has done anything right since the Panama Canal was dug (brief exception: Rudy G.); товарищ Maurice is unlikely to reverse the trend. This idiot-trotskyite wants to control the means of production in order to ensure “correct” market planning. Such policies worked extraordinarily well in the U.S.S.R., in East Germany, and continue to perform splendidly in China and Cuba. Thank you, Genosse! Thank you for volunteering to destroy the world’s economy.
Perhaps instead of nationalizing the refineries, Tovarish Mo-Mo should stop writing love letters to Hugo Chavez and work to get oil companies permission to build new refineries. When was the last time a new refinery was built from scratch in the U.S.?
Still I side with Malcolm Forbes: let’s continue to pump oil from the Mid-East until it’s totally tapped out there, rendering that accursed corner of the world once again irrelevant. But we could refine it here…
