Hallelujah, Gas Station to offer Terror Free Gas for all Liberals

Gas Station to offer Terror Free Gas

OMAHA, Neb. -- Area drivers will soon be able to fill up with gasoline made from "terror-free oil."

KETV in Omaha reports that a gas station is about to open near 129th and Q streets named Terror Free Oil, and the idea is to offer consumers petroleum products from countries that do not sponsor terror.


The gas station is associated with the Terror-Free Oil Initiative. The group's objective is to encourage Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism. A representative said that Omaha's will be the first of several terror-free oil gas stations to open across the country.

"The terror-free oil initiative is dedicated to encouraging Americans to buy gasoline that originated from countries that do not export or finance terrorism," according to the group's Web site.

Chris Decker, professor of economics with the University of Nebraska-Omaha, said the idea may make for good marketing.

"From a business perspective, it's kind of a neat way to differentiate yourself from the competition. To me, that sounds an awful lot like what we in environmental economics refer to as eco-labeling. Like, when you purchase a can of tuna with a symbol that there was no harm to dolphins to catch the tuna," Decker said.

Will drivers make a special trip? Mary Ann Buscher said the station got her attention, with its bright red, white and blue advertising, but she isn't sure when or if she'll stop there.

"I wouldn't go out of my way to go there, probably. No, I wouldn't," she said.

The grand opening is Feb. 12.

Silly Liberals, attempting to get people to link petroleum purchases with terror financing is just plain dumb.

Yes, just think, if we could just stay addicted to all that oil, we can send our kids to die for our cheap gas forever.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

Oh, well, that's really just Chevron with Techroline, which is derived from the spleens and genital tissue of underage endangered Humpback whales. Why do you hate whales?

Call me Ishmael. Long story but it involves a harpoon, a thick rope and a little too much rum on my part.

Who in that industry is innocent?

BP?
Citgo?
Shell?
Texaco?
How about Haliburton?

What's the criteria?
Do they maybe only use oil with FOREIGN blood on it?
Arab, or Muslim blood?
Iraqi, but not Saudi?

Which company has not supplied the world with "terror" while conducting its business? It's all a matter of point of view.
