There was a press conference held at a gas station in DC yesterday. Afterward, all the members of Congress that attended drove off (by “drove off”, I mean that they were driven off by hired drivers, of course). They all left in Hydogen-powered cars. But they were only driven a little way off to where their real cars were. By “cars”, I mean super-dee-duper-gas-guzzlin SUVs. Then, they drove the few blocks that were left to get back to Capitol Hill.
We sure know how to pick our leaders in this country, huh?
You can read USA Today’s commentary on it here.
The reason this bothers me so much is b/c these ppl only care about appearances. They couldn’t care less about what’s really going on in the US right now. Big Oil — Price (prize) gouging. All that matters to them is how they look. They’re just posers.
Which shouldn’t be such a big deal. But I guess it really bothers me that they think we’re all buying into what they’re showing us. And I guess a lot of Americans are; or else why would these big-business tycoons be in office now? I just wish there was something more. I wish they really understood what was happening & really cared enough to do something real about it. Not just put on a show like we’re at the $5 matinee & then go back to how they were an hour & twenty mins later. I guess I’m just a little frustrated that I just spent $40 to put gas in the car 3 days ago, & it’s on empty now.
