or is it because many in the MSM sees no real difference between production vs. theft (a la Marx)

Well...as one poster pointed out...this is from the Austin American Statesman. :)

I watched the hearings after Hurricane Rita and one Democratic congressman from Mississippi was talking about outfitting gas stations with $60,000 power backups, at government expense. They still sell handpumps.

Surely there is something between a hand cranked pump and a 60,000 power backup? A pump powered by a weed whacker sized gasoline motor for a single "spigot". Or a little portable generator that could hook up to one pump.
