    Me n' Big Oil


    Well, I'm not sure what you know about Lukoil. They were named in the Oil-For-Food investigation. And yeah, gas is expensive. I'm not saying I know much about Lukoil myself; I'm just saying I bet you wouldn't be a fan. I can't vouch for disinfopedia, but I won't argue that they are not just big business; they are Russian big business.

    And so Conoco just bought them. I mention this because I own a little bit of Conoco stock. They have one of those Drip account things and I have a few shares.

    I feel so deliciously eeeeevil!

    Really though, this is a good thing. It is a record breaking privatization in Russia, it adds a buttload of non-Middle East oil to our options in the US, some stability for everyone. I am no expert, and there are angles I couldn't possibly understand about it. I'll grant that. Supposedly the deal was a good one and as a free trade move it was probably a good thing all around.

    But since I am glad, I expect Dick Cheney to catch heat for this somehow. Somewhere, they will say, Cheney is rubbing his hands together and sneering at you to Go F%$# Yourself.

    one of my favorite things to say while on my business trip was, "why don't you go cheney yourself?"

    it went over smashingly.

    btw, when are we going to grow up and start going to bed at a reasonable hour?

    hmmmm?

    Oh that's probably just the pollution from my multinational industrial energy holdings. Don't mind that...

    I wish you weren't a flower though. Cheney says we have to crush those. He doesn't like flowers.

    For Free:

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
