have you ever worked on an oil rig or pipe line?  I have.  And even 
with all of the environmental controls in the world, the accidents 
and spills and damage is enough not to start drilling in ANWR.  And 
anyway, isn't all of the current Alaskan oil currently going to 
Japan?  With all of the subsidizes that the oil industry gets (tax 
breaks, development tax write offs, research write off, investment 
grants) oil should be free at the pump  Remember, the oil industry 
basically does not pay taxes.  Why don't we just shift that tax payer 
money away from W's buddies and into a localized wind industry.  From 
my stays in West Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas 
there is enough wind to power the entire country.  Opening up ANWR to 
this crooked industry is just another example of government/big 
business graft.
