No, it is illegal for companies in the United States to do business with Iran last I checked. We have other countries that we refuse to sell military hardware to, like North Korea.

While we do import some oil from middle eastern countries our top supplier is actually Canada.

Anyways, I'm not saying that at all, people should try to conserve and get more fuel efficient vehicles but some people can't afford hybrids or the hybrid doesn't have the power needed to do the job required (particularly with farms).

I've basically said that MSNBC is made up of a bunch of left wing kooks that are a sham. I'd sooner trust Rush Limbaugh to be fair and balanced on something than anyone on MSNBC, in other words MSNBC is so bad that they have absolutely no credibility in my mind.

Btw, I know quite well what McCarthyism is, and I'm rather insulted that you'd compare me with McCarthy.
