Urgent: House Democrats call for nationalization of refineries
Per Pergram-Capitol Hill
House Democrats responded to President's [sic] Bush's call for Congress to lift the moratorium on offshore drilling. This was at an on-camera press conference fed back live.
Among other things, the Democrats called for the government to own refineries so it could better control the flow of the oil supply.

Nationalizing the U.S. oil industry to reduce oil prices isn't going to solve the problems. It's a diversion from getting at the root cause.
Burning refined crude oil has been a terrible idea. Humanity should back energy that doesn't cause any known harm. Current oil burning is harmful. It is not a tradeoff. It is a negative (a liability) after all things have been considered.
There are perfectly sound alternatives that would be harmonizing and even healthful in the final analysis.
The only people who object are those who make money off the liability. Selfishness is the root cause of the problems. Eliminate it from your heart. Don't support selfishness as the political economy for the family that is humanity. Be rather enlightened. Shine the light of truth.
