Of Bruce Springsteen, Big Oil, Exxon, and Climate Change

WHEN BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN SINGS COMON UP FOR THE RISIN..HE WASNT TALKING ABOPT FOD PRICES. HOW COULD THINGS BE SPIRALING THIS MUCH OUT OF CONTROL TIS FAST ? WHO IS TO BLAME ? WHO WASNT LISTENED TO ...YOU KNOW? i WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHO SAID SEVERAL YEARS AGO ...DONT USE CORN FOR ENERGY OR YOULL CREATE MORE PROBLEMS THAN IS WORTH. WHO SAID DONT INVADE AND CONQUER AN OIL RICH COUNTRY, OR YOU MAY FIND THE PRICE OF GAS TRIPLED WITHIN 5 YEARS.

SOMOENE MUST HAVE BEEN OUT THERE SAYING IT ?
WHEN GAS GOES TO 5 UCKS A GALLON, NOBODY GETS BOOODY, NOBODY LOSES A LIMB, NOBODY DIES IN COMBAT ...HOWEVER, ITS HARD NOT TO REALIZE THAT ITS LIKE A BOMB GOING OFF IN MY BACK YARD. GAS ESCELATES, FOOD ESCELATES, QUALITY OF LIFE DIMINISHES, AND GENERALLY, LIFE IS MUCH MORE UNPLEASANT FOR THOSE WITH MEAGER MEANS, AND FOR SOME, LIFE DOES INDEED BECOME A NIGHTMARE OF CHECKING ACCOUNT OVERDRAFTS, LATE PAYMENTS ON CARDS OR UTILITY BILLS, AND A NEW CONSTANT WEIGHING OF NEEDS VERSUS WANTS.
IM TROUBLED THAT BIG OIL IS GETTING RICH, BUT ALSO REALIZE THAT ITS NOT REALLY THEIR JOB TO LOWER THEIR PROFIT POTENTIAL JUST BECAUSE WE ARE SUFFERING. FOR PROFIT VENTURES ARE ALMOST NEVER BALANCED AGAINST THE NEED FOR COMMON GOOD. BUT UNDERSTAND THAT IN THIS ECONOMY, ITS NOT JUST BIG OIL GETTING RICHER. ANYONE WITH COMFORTABLE MEANS RIGHT NOW IS ONLY SUFFERING FROM ONE MALADY...THAT THE INTEREST RATE CUTS AWAY AT THE WEALTHYS INTEREST BOUNTY....,BUT BUT BUT...THOSE WITH MEANS HAVE PURCHASING POWER LIKE NEVER BEFORE AND CAN GOBBLE UP REAL ESTATE , CARS, AND ANYTHING YOU CAN THINK OF THAT IS VALUABLE AT BARGAIN BASEMENT PRICES BECAUSE ONLY THE RICH CAN AFFORD THESE THINGS NOW. INDEED, LIKE NEVER BEFORE IN MY LIFE, THE RICH ARE GETTING RICHER IF THEY WANT ...AND ALL THIS COMES AMIDST THE MORAL DILEMMA OF ABSOLUTELY NEEDING TO DO SOMETHING, ANYTHING, ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE.
