    Who really gives a shit about us commoners except if we're filthy rich? Moneys talks, real political issues and the will of the majority walks, bunch of bought son's of bitches.

    Making $.07 a gallon is a triumph?

    Woe are the pitiful famiwies. Woe is them.

    Woe is me who pays $3.00/gallon of milk. and $2 bread. Woe with the flow.

    Yknow what I did the other day? I bought 4 (count 'em four) $25 gas gift cards and gave them to the dumb bastards that deliver meals on wheels in my town. They donate their time and money and gas to take food to old people. What have you done for your fellow man lately?

    Stop your worthless lamenting.

    It's ok to complain. I got plenty to complain about but money ain't one of them. Not my money not anyone else's money. It never bought me the shit that matters in life because I've been so down and out that neither love nor money could buy what I needed. I found it in myself. I was like woe is me. So I pull myself up- not uncle sammy. Then I get to the place where I can give something. Not to the woeful famiwies that pay 1/4 for gasowine that Europeans pay. No- I give to people that give. That way nobody knows and that's how I like it.

    "I feel awful for you, I can only imagine your hardship.
    If only I could walk a mile in your shoes...please...I have no shoes.
    Here, please accept a few Rupees, I only wish I could spare more."

    Stunning spikes in energy prices have an immediate effect on folks whose finances were on the edge to begin with.

    And when that happens the economy fibrilates

    EVen if you happen to be in that financial state where such spikes are insignificant to you, you are still a creature of this economy.
