Not saying that at all. Just don't let them make the rules. And if they are going to claim that "drill baby drill" is going to lead to energy independence and lower gas prices then we need to make sure that they aren't just blowing smoke up our asses to get their way. And we damn sure need to make sure their not gouging our asses after we let them get away with murder.
I have nothing against anyone or any company/corporation making an honest buck. I just believe that there should be ground rules to ensure that people are not getting screwed and harm is not being done.
