Gosh, do some­thing

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - VOICES -

The let­ter of July 2 by Mr. Peter Tra­bant of Hot Springs Vil­lage should be a wake-up call for all of us. l had heard be­fore that Congress changed the law so that pe­tro­leum pro­duced in Amer­ica could be sold on the world mar­ket. What I didn’t hear is that the United States is still ac­tively buy­ing oil on the world mar­ket just like be­fore. Some­thing stinks.

Mr. Tra­bant has done us a great ser­vice by ex­pos­ing this. I sug­gest that ev­ery­one start con­tact­ing their se­na­tors and con­gress­men and de­mand­ing an­swers. And a tweet to Mr. Trump wouldn’t hurt. He likes tweets.

It would be in­ter­est­ing to learn just how and why we as a na­tion are buy­ing oil for gaso­line while at the same time sell­ing oil we have pro­duced in Amer­ica and pos­si­bly Canada. The an­swer had bet­ter be good. I’m not on­line but that is the best and fastest way to deal with this.

Mr. Tra­bant, we are in­debted to you; thank you! To ev­ery­one else, con­tact your con­gres­sional rep­re­sen­ta­tives and se­na­tors and de­mand an­swers. And don’t wait. This is most im­por­tant. An in­ves­ti­ga­tion by an out­side group like Ju­di­cial Watch or a sim­i­lar group could get to the bot­tom of this, the sooner the bet­ter.
