Hi Don,

The definition of Oxymoron is a figure of speech that combines two normally contradictory terms. Oxymoron is a loanword from Greek oxy ("sharp" or "pointed") and moros ("dull"). Thus the word oxymoron is itself an oxymoron.

To say you want to discuss oil or it's related products without getting political is literally impossible. Politics, foreign policy and oil are one in the same in form and content, inseparable in this day and age. Thus making the statement an Oxymoroff.

Smitty, I will try to put some road photos up this evening, it's basically rained out.
