From a parallel universe, light years away, comes . . .

Little Green Man.

Whatareyadoin'?

Picking our president.

Whoa!  That sounds important!

Oh, it is, and one of the most important things about a candidate is their energy policy.

What's that?

It's how they plan to keep our cars running and our homes brightly lit!

Oh.

See, one of our top candidates says man has dominion over the earth!

Whoa.  That sounds cool.

Yeah, which means we can drill for anything, anywhere we want . . . cause it's our earth!

But, can't the earth shake you to pieces, drown your cities, or send a sharp-toothed animal to kill you?

I guess, but this guy says we still have dominion.  I think we're supposed to be in charge.

Oh, okay.

And the other candidates blame our current president for gas prices rising.

Wow.  Is that like price dominion?

I don't know how he does it, but he does it all over the world.  Plus, he wants to drill more, too.

What if you just put oil platforms everywhere, how much would that bring price down?

Um, I guess by about three cents.

So, you're here on this earth, seeking oil and gas, sacrificing animals and whatever, then you visit shrines every day and give it money?

Yeah, pretty much!

That's a really messed-up theology.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
