Plans afoot to drill Alaskan wildlife refuge - Yahoo! UK & Ireland News

Plans afoot to drill Alaskan wildlife refuge - Yahoo! UK & Ireland News

This keeps upsetting me. It didn't even show up in the US news media. The original article showed up on Reuters Europe. I guess the social security "crisis" is more important right now.

Also this week a motion was defeated to raise the minimum wage from $5.25 to $7.25. I guess those senators have never had to live off minimum wage. Do the math, 160 hrs a month of work to pay a rent of $1400 (low end 2 bed room apartment in the Bay Area). Get the picture? I think everybody in the government should live off minimum wage for the entire time they are in office. That would get their perspectives right. Oh, and maybe their $1400 a month habitat should be next to an oil well... while we are at it.
