Someone want to explain what happened to truth in advertising?

This is an insult to the intelligence of the American people. Why is it okay? Corporate? Really? The ad money is okay because corporations approve of the deception. Is that why it is running on USA networks. 

There is no oil IN THE ARTIST and artists can find material to express their art. Cave drawings have lasted millions of years and it wasn't because an oil based paint was manufactured by some corporation drilling into Earth somewhere.

If a woman is using oil based make-up she needs to read the label better. 

"Oil taps potential?" A handicapped female athlete is dependent on oil for her prosthetic arm? Plastics? Is that the point? A prosthetic arm is a lot more than plastic. And the female athlete needs clean air, water and an environment that won't kill her because of the climate crisis.

And the space program? That is outrageous. The petroleum industry is no where near the space program except for perhaps plastic and ground vehicles on Earth. Maybe. They can be replaced with E85 or Flex vehicles or better yet electric vehicles.

The petroleum industry has caused a great deal of damage in every corner of Earth and should be grateful they have product that is actually still needed.

The commercial is definitely misleading, ambiguous and flat out lies. It is a horrible commercial that insinuates oil is a hero to the American people.


The Russians might believe it though.

There are no gas pumps in space, nor will there be.

How do you get electricity 220 miles above Earth? (click here) No extension cord or power cable is available for that job, so the best source of energy for spacecraft is sunlight. Engineers have developed technologies to convert solar energy to electrical power efficiently.
Solar arrays that convert energy to electricity on the space station are made of thousands of solar cells. The solar cells are made from purified chunks of the element silicon. These cells directly convert light to electricity using a process called photovoltaics....

Solar arrays. The light in space is enviably abundant and free.

Liquid Hydrogen--the Fuel of Choice for Space Exploration (click here)
Despite criticism and early technical failures, the taming of liquid hydrogen proved to be one of NASA's most significant technical accomplishments. . . . Hydrogen -- a light and extremely powerful rocket propellant -- has the lowest molecular weight of any known substance and burns with extreme intensity (5,500°F). In combination with an oxidizer such as liquid oxygen, liquid hydrogen yields the highest specific impulse, or efficiency in relation to the amount of propellant consumed, of any known rocket propellant....

Got that? Liquid Hydrogen + an oxidizer like Liquid Oxygen = propellant

Back in the day, it was originally liquid oxygen. But, when there was a deadly explosion killing three astronauts, the oxygen was mixed with hydrogen.

WASHINGTON, May 10, 2017 – Today API welcomed Customs and Border Protection’s (CBP) decision to withdraw its proposed changes to the agency’s interpretation of the Jones Act as it applies to vessels in offshore oil and natural gas activity, a change that could have had widespread negative impacts on American jobs.
“Withdrawing the proposed changes protects U.S. energy security and allows for consumers and businesses to continue benefitting from America’s energy renaissance,” said API Upstream Director Erik Milito. “A recent report projected that this proposal could have resulted in the loss of thousands of American jobs, reduced U.S. oil and natural gas production, and diminished revenues for federal and state government.
“By rescinding the proposal, CBP has decided not to impose potentially serious limitations to the industry’s ability to safely, effectively, and economically operate. The responsible development of America’s abundant oil and natural gas resources is a critical part of a forward-looking energy policy that will secure our energy future and help meet our nation’s energy needs.”
API is the only national trade association representing all facets of the oil and natural gas industry, which supports 9.8 million U.S. jobs and 8 percent of the U.S. economy. API’s more than 625 members include large integrated companies, as well as exploration and production, refining, marketing, pipeline, and marine businesses, and service and supply firms. They provide most of the nation’s energy and are backed by a growing grassroots movement of more than 40 million Americans.
This is the best part. 

The money. Do you really qualify for a personal RSVP and long for one?

It is where "Citizens United" really matters.
