YOU FIRST, JEFF
Senator Merkley, explains his vote against approving the Keystone XL pipeline: "Wise stewardship means we must leave four-fifths of the conventional fossil fuels in the ground" (to combat catastrophic global warming)
I think this is a "great" idea. HOWEVER, Senator Merkley needs to go first. Next time Jeff stops by the gas station wanting a 15 gallon fill-up for his Prius, he should be legally permitted to only buy 3 gallons - not a drop more... leaving 4/5ths of the fuel behind.
So many of our Commie "Gang Greens" preach that it's up to you to live in a mud hut, or a crowded urban Habitrail, while they jet off to the next climate change conference. (Or in Merkley's case, hang at the Capitol Hill shrimpfests)

Here's part of her latest op-ed:
By Marilyn M. Singleton, MD, JD
Lies and promises have been a staple of politics since its inception. As Plato observed, “propaganda, that is, ‘enticing people into a change of opinion by promises of pleasure’ and deceit always go together.”
ObamaCare’s empty promises have become not-so-funny household jokes: health law negotiations would be live on C-SPAN, if you like your doctor you can keep your doctor, the law will not add a single dime to the deficits, the average family will save $2,500 on their premiums, and on and on and on. Now the deceit has been exposed.
My heartfelt thanks go to Jonathan Gruber, Ph.D., MIT economics professor and a developer of the Affordable Care Act for speaking the ugly truth. READ MORE
