Pickens wraps himself in US flag as he asks for special legislation to line his pocket

According to MSNBC, T. Boone Pickens is

now pushing Congress to pass legislation that would offer incentives to convert 18-wheelers and fleet vehicles to run on compressed natural gas, or CNG, rather than diesel. He said if just 8 million of those trucks switch to the domestic-produced fuel, it could cut in half the amount of foreign oil imported by the United States.
“I’m all American,” Pickens said on Friday. “Any energy in America beats importing.”

Pickens is an All-American...corporatist.
