Long before Rump, Obummer often bragged that his policies of increased oil and gas drilling had guaranteed that the USA was now “energy independent” for the next 100 years.
(Whenever I heard Obummer boast like that, I thought: “Yeah, and your energy policies might very well cause mass extinctions or total extinction in those next 100 years – a–h—!”)
Anyway, if Obummer’s policies of increased oil and gas drilling already guarantee the USA to be “energy independent” for the next 100 years, that means drilling for oil in the Arctic Wildlife Refuge (and in the Arctic Circle) now is completely unnecessary! (In addition to being hateful to nature and reckless about global warming!)
The USA does not need the additional oil – this additional oil drilling is merely insatiable greed for money! The right-wing rich are obsessive-compulsive about always increasing their already filthy excess of wealth.
They never have enough and are always driven to crave “more. more, more” – regardless of the severe destruction they cause!
I really think the right-wing rich, compulsive capitalists are mentally ill.
Mentally healthy people don’t think, feel, and act the way that these creepy fanatics do.
