U.S. to expand oil drilling in Alaska

"Hi, boys and girls -- can you say PLUNDER?"

Here's another one to file under: "So pack yer ermines, Mary, cause the whole shithouse is going up in chunks."

Jan. 21, 2005 | WASHINGTON -- Citing a need for domestic energy, the government plans to open for exploratory drilling thousands of acres on Alaska's North Slope that have been protected for decades because of migratory birds and caribou...

While most of the 22 million-acre reserve is open to oil development, its lake-pocked northeastern corner has been fenced off, dating back to the Reagan administration, because of environmental concerns ...

... the area around Lake Teshekpuk in the northeast corner of the NPRA is among the most important molting areas in the entire Arctic for wild geese. It is also used for calving and insect relief by herds of caribou.

-- See, it's like this -- the marks are coming up on the Bush administration because of Iraq and Social Security, so they're stealing with both hands just as fast as they can to get all they can and get the hell out. It just grieves them with bitter sorrow to think of leaving anything behind.

Hey, Monkey Boy -- that's OUR oil and OUR wildlife you're putting your sticky fingers on.
