Elderly man: If anything happens to the oil depletion allowance, I’m as good as dead.
Unemployed Veteran: If these dudes don’t get some offshore oil leases, I’ll be back on the streets. And I’ll be mad.
Athsmatic Little Girl: Please don’t pull the plug on me. Support the deregulation of natural gas.
