No excuse for bombing Third World for oil

A reminder for all the people complaining about protesters using gas and products from trees: Protesters are demonstrating for a better world. During the Reagan term, funding for all alternative energy was cut from the budget, and has still not been brought back.

Remember, during Reagan’s term, Bush Senior was vice president. Another reminder, the federal government has blocked every attempt for a hemp industry in America; the Sioux nation personally experienced this. At least the protesters did carpool when going to the peace march. There are no excuses for bombing third-world countries, or barefoot children, for oil. We have the technology to prevent war and live in a better world.
