I added The Kansas Citian to my Google Reader after discovering him through Twitter (there are so many things in this one fucking sentence that make me such a colossal geek I don't even know where to begin).
He seems to be a conservative-leaning blogger so I'm waiting for him to BAN ME like the other ones have done (conservatives don't really like to hear opposing views...it makes their tiny, reptilian brains itch).
But in the meantime, I couldn't help laughing my fucking ass off at this.
He has his panties in a twist because Cuba (a sovereign nation that can do whatever it pleases no matter how close it may be to Florida) has sold off-shore drilling leases to China.
Maybe we should have lifted the ridiculous embargo against Cuba decades ago and started talking to them and negotiating with them. Maybe we would be drilling there now. We could all be sitting at The Flying Saucer drinking exotic beers and smoking Cuban cigars. But NOOOO!
However, I digress. Here is the Money Shot from his post.
"China is trying to lock up resources around the world, and they are locking up resources in our own backyard where we can't even compete and play ball," Sen. Larry Craig (R-ID) told the Sun-Sentinel. "This is simply wrong. I've had enough, and I believe the American people have had enough."
Ahem. Larry Craig is upset that people can't "compete and play ball" for "resources" in his "own backyard".
I have no doubt whatsoever that he would like to open up drilling to anyone willing to pay for it.
Hell, he might even be willing to open it up for free to anyone with a wide stance.
Some blogs really should have editors.
My blog should probably have an editor.
