Tell your mechanic to put synthetic oil in your car, truck or farm machines next time you change oil. These are good oils and the more we use the quicker the price will come down.

Iraq oil, food scandal probe starts with UN staff
Reuters ^ | 5/20/04
Apparently, the mainstream media, which loves nothing more than a scandal, does not like it so much when there is a big, fat finger pointing at it's iconic darling, the oh so soft spoken and reasonable Mr. Anan, who I believe, by the way, is up to his tookas in this and who will nevertheless get off scot free and continue to be lionized

How about if we save our blood and drill our own oil?Then we can put the terrorists money supply out of business.

While I do agree that we should drill much more than the fedgov currently allows, if we produce more of our own oil, other countries will still buy from the Saudis. Actually, not that much of our oil comes from the Middle East - we import more from Mexico, Venezuala, and Nigeria.

Not actually true, we get more from Saudi Arabia than Nigeria or Venezuela.

Data from March 2004 (in thousands of barrels per day)
CANADA.............................1,583
MEXICO..............................1,576
SAUDI ARABIA..................1,478
NIGERIA..............................1,417
VENEZUELA.......................1,343
IRAQ.......................................621
ANGOLA................................336
UNITED KINGDOM..............293
ALGERIA................................253
NORWAY...............................217
KUWAIT.................................214
GABON...................................108
COLOMBIA............................105
ECUADOR................................95
EQUATORIAL GUINEA..........93

Total crude oil imports averaged 10.254 million barrels per day in March. Only the top 15 listed above.

Last year first quarter, Saudi Arabia was our #1 supplier

KOFI ANNAN, the secretary-general of the United Nations,  stayed on after his five-year term ended  in December 2001.

There was scant mention in the media of the plain fact that it was Annan, when he was head of the United Nation's peacekeeping office, who could have prevented the slaughter of 800,000 Tutus and their sympathizers in Rwanda in 1994.

Maj. Gen. Romeo Dallaire, head of a U.N. peacekeeping mission in Rwanda, urgently pleaded with Annan to intervene before the killings began, because Dallaire knew of the preparations for the genocide. Annan refused to act, or to say anything publicly.

This appalling complicity in the horrors that followed has been documented in a book, "We Wish to Inform You That Tomorrow We Will Be Killed With Our Families: Stories From Rwanda" (and PAPERBACK ) by Philip Gourevitch.

The lethal silence of both Annan and President William Jefferson Clinton was also reported, in unrefuted detail, on a "Frontline" broadcast titled "The Triumph of Evil." The show was made in collaboration with the BBC and broadcast on PBS on Jan. 26, 1999.

Well, thanks for the encouraging words. I sure wish more people would wake up and realize what a sham the UN is.

It started as a noble idea, but like a lot of things whose main yardstick is "having good intentions," it got lost in a forest of corruption and lies.

I hate the UN.

The UN first came to my attention when I was a teenager in the nineteen-sixties, and my impression of it was

"...an angry rabble with one fist shaking in America's face, while the other fist picked our pocket..."

Nothing- not one thing- in the interviening 40 years- has modified that impression.
