''DYING FOR BIG OIL''

Collectively big oil has posted a second-quarter profit of $30 billion. Most people think the reason for big oil's grotesque profit surge is that they are bending the American consumer over at the pump, and not even bothering to give the people a smooch when they're done. Greed is greed, but there is more to the profit story than most Americans care to realize.

The biggest reason for big oil's obscene profit surge is war. While Bush and Republicans steal freedom from the American people, if any American parent continues to believe their son or daughter is dying in Iraq because of some absurd notion of "spreading freedom" in the Middle East, that parent or parents are sadly mistaken! Their son or daughter is dying in Iraq for oil profits.

"Liberal whack-job," you say, "Bill O'Reilly, Rush Limbaugh and the DLC warned me about people like you."

Fair enough. Everyone is entitled to their opinion; however, neither propoganda nor absurd nationalistic delusions will change this reality: The war in Iraq and now, too, the instability created by Israel's fight with Hezbollah threatens to, thanks to Bush's refusal to seek a ceasefire, completely destabilize the entire Middle East and are the engines driving oil over $70 a barrel. And it is the uncertainty created by war(s) more than anything that has been generating big oil's absurd profits.

Sling names, toss mud, make false accusations, continue buying into the lies O'Reilly and Limbaugh are selling, but no amount of rationalization and really twisting can change this simple and singular all important fact: War is good for business and war is especially good for big oil's business! War creates instability, which provides big oil the excuse to drive the price of their product even higher on the stock market.

AMERICA'S CHILDREN ARE DYING IN IRAQ FOR ONE THING AND ONE THING ALONE---BUSH/CHENEY'S BIG OIL PALS' PROFITS. PERIOD! END OF DEBATE. ON THE WAY TO YOUR SON OR DAUGHTER'S FLAG-DRAPED FUNERAL, STOP AT A GAS STATION AND TELL BIG OIL HOW MUCH YOU APPRECIATE THE SACRIFICE YOUR KID MADE SO THEY COULD EARN ANOTHER $30 BILLION. JUST DON'T EXPECT THE OIL EXECS OR BUSH AND CHENEY TO GIVE YOU A SMOOCH.
