A gaggle of oil industry lackeys calling themselves the Competitive Enterprise Institute in May 2006 produced ads that ended with the line “
We’d encourage our own parents to eat uranium if the uranium industry tossed a few moolahs our way CO2: they call it pollution, we call it Life!” (And yes the CEI did have ties to the tobacco industry at the time, why do you ask?)
At any rate, if you enjoyed laughing at those commercials, you will be delighted to know that Ted “Soup Dragon” Cruz has issued a 10th anniversary remix.
