Rep. Tom Cole Wants to Feed Our Addiction
Recently, Oklahoma Representative Tom Cole released a column decrying the skyrocketing prices of methamphetamines, which he blamed on excessive left wing government regulation. He called for the government to remove regulations from the meth industry so that the commodity would become more available to average Americans.
Well, that's not exactly what he said. He was talking about oil, but his take on the problem of high energy costs and its solution made about as much sense as it would have if he were talking about meth.
