I suggest instead of blaming others for what you dont have, pick yourself up like millions of americans do and go at it again. This is one of the only countries in the world where you can start out with nothing and legally end up with all your dreams.....but Im sure you know that your just to bias or have to much self pity to wipe away the tears and relize it.

The poster who said the Iraq invasion has nothing to do with Oil Prices obviously does not understand the stock market, and speculatory buying.
The poster who harped on about Alaskan Oil obviously doesn't understand the time needed for investment in drilling programmes, infrastructure costs and the technical demands of setting up a drilling field. Yeah, when all thats done the US may be self sufficient for a while, but what happens while all thats being put in place?

As far as bottled water goes, many people drink bottled water to avoid the flouride that we are being forced to drink in our tap water.
No dental care for poor people but they sure will provide us with plenty of flouride!!!

Oil, texas tea, black gold. We should be soooo far away from our dependency oil and other fossil fuels by now.
Oil has allowed evil men to become dangerously rich, and they are buying power with all their money. This power allows them to maintain their stranglehold on the energy markets. Anyone that has a potential replacement and is seen as a threat to their dominance, will be forcefully bought out or quietly offed.
Without oil their goo guzzling war machines would all fail, as would their attempt at global domination.
It's the "evil men" as you call them who are providing the resources YOU use to enjoy YOUR life.
