Arnold Schwarzenegger turns against oil drilling

4 posts / 0 new

Well at least one Republican governor is taking some positive steps.

For what its worth, I am not strictly AGAINST offshore drilling (I know that is not a popular progressive stance). However I believe the US oil industry should be made to adopt the EXACT same safety and environmental policies as Norway does, before one more rig can drill. I wonder how likely that would be?

I think Arnold ought to start the Beer Party for real independents. He is the Nelson Rockefeller of today's GOP.

He's done a bang up job in Califonia.

Well look for a spike in California's tourism industry, as people ditch the oil drenched beaches of Florida, and the racist deserts or Arizona.

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.
