I've been watching a lot of CNN since Sept. 11th.
Now, I find this a bit ironic. See if you agree.

I saw a header go across the bottom of the screen, saying something to the point that Opec needed to do something so oil prices wouldn't slide.

Now get this! A few hours later, maybe even a day later, they arrested a suspect who shot a hole in the oil line in Alaska, using a high powered rifle! Hmmmm!!!!!

Now tell me this isn't an inside job here?? A high powered rifle? What in the world does that mean to you? Hmmm! And what did this "suspect" have to gain by shooting a hole in the oil line for anyway????

Hmmmm!!!! Does anyone find this strange but me?
You can bet your bottom dollar that's an excuse for it to go up. I find it funny it hasn't made bigger headlines, or being investigated bigger than it is, if it is at all.

HMMMMM!!!!!

not strange to me

it's all about oil and money

all of it

sad but that's my opinion that it's true

money and oil

has always been that way....

oh well!

LOL!!!! oh WELL!!!! hehehe.....  i crack myself up... deep subject, huh?

well, Deep Pockets can dig in for control but basically, it's all out of ours....

i've been trying not to think of tomorrow
but i know that tomorrow is all that we own ....
since there's nothing that's left to be borrowed,
and today is a day that's on loan.....

i've been trying not to think of the damage,
the lives spent for lining accounts
of those who see dollars in french or in spanish
in multiples of our withouts

yes, basically if
we have oil for the fire,
there's people who'll readily buy it..
and some have the nerve
to control the whole world
with their greed in the name "sanctify it".

little by litte, the lines have been crossed
and all of it is about money.
why bother, my friend, with a part of forever
that won't bring in all the sweet honey...?....

but hey, i' am glad
that you read the news
now let us all quickly agree
that money means nothing
oil's greasy
war's hell,
we know ,,, *sigh*
it;s just you and me.....

and shooting those holes
was somehow insightful
the overflow, maybe the earnings
of int'rest, investments, or mobil, exxon,
or whatever the dollar, the yearnings...

oh well, oh well
oh what the hell
deep  subjects
can oftentimes foil
the rational thinking
of otherwise wise
when there's money
inside of the oil

I'm in the industry myself from an administrative standpoint Rebecca.  This incident has caused a bad spill, but hopefully they'll get this under control. They do believe it's an act of vandalism brought on by alcohol, by a local who lived in the area. It does not appear to be related to terrorism, but you'll notice in the article, they do note some of your concerns as well Rebecca. Here's a more detailed link on the subject:

Thanks Kit for providing that. I didn't think it had anything to with terrorism.

My thoughts were those of seeing them say they needed to do "something" to stop prices from sliding. I thought how conveinent that this guy shot it after that was said.

Criminal background or not, I find it awfully timely for that to have happened.

Thanks Kit for sharing that. It does bring more light to things, as I haven't heard much about it at all, but in these days, our own government lies to us, who's to say that wasn't set up.

All I'm saying is to me, it's a big coincidence.

You're welcome Rebecca ... actually, I was surprised it didn't make more news headlines myself ... it sounds like quite a spill.

I saw this in Today's Topics this morning and wanted to add my 2 cents. The news must think the people are truly stupid! Yes, this sounds so fishy.  I, myself, wish I did not have to own a car!  Interesting topic, thanks for posting it, I hadn't heard about this.

Of course the news doesn't have much to say, they are too busy covering every rotten detail of what we are going to blow up next.  Who cares about oil spills and the environment and innocent citizens when we have a WAR going on...comeon people get with the program, Sheesh!  
Ya know, this is the first time I've really been angry, and it seems to be more directed at the US Government than the terrorists.  
Sorry for ranting though

The sad thing is - the guy who shot the pipeline was DRUNK!!! (or so they said in the police report).  

Live today as if it's your last.  Love today as if it's your first.   Lisa
