I recently read a story of a young lady who could not get off crack cocaine, referred to as "candy". She hit and killed a lady I knew, and kept going. She was supposedly a good girl, so, I am sure she was influenced by the candy. It alters the thinking, impairs the judgment, and causes one to act out of character.
This is what is happening with us as a nation. We don't act like the most powerful nation on earth. When we see the handwriting on the wall, we still continue to pay ungodly amounts for oil. We blame everyone else but ourselves. We pressure the president to get the prices down. We are ready to go to war for something that isn't ours anyway. When will we realize that we need help? Yet, we don't hold speculators accountable. And we don't take a serious look at alternative fuels. There will come a time when there will be no oil. Therefore, we need to stop treating it as if it is a never-ending supply. It's time to get honest with ourselves and stop investing our future in oil. Let's get off the candy!
