Barry's deadbeat constituency won't pay Com Ed and he won't drill as OPEC cuts production to raise prices. He gets it?

Exelon gets what they deserve.
They take Billions in tax credits/breaks and energy prices never seem to go down?

Let's all pass the hat for 'em - not hardly.
Where are Illinois's wind-farms, where are our solar-collectors? Where is our common-sense - guess it's not so common.
Bend over - utility-users, here it comes!

Boo Hoo,

the wind farms are out west, along hwy 39. I saw 3 of them during a 2 hour trip.

I wish I could see more of them. And solar panels as well. that's the energy of the future, not drilling. this 'drill baby drill' chant and mentality is regressive. The only thing that will help is progressive thinking.
