    Our president just does not get it. Its not about the oil, its about the jobs. Ho can we create jobs with a policy that is to reduce the oil we import with a plan that does not exist

    To start with the exploration, the extraction, the delivery, the refinement, and the sales of the product will at every step create jobs
    Yet we get all of this from Mexico and Canada
    Why?
    Because all of those resources and those steps that would follow have a foot on there throat by the U.S. goverment

    Florida and Texas in jobs pissing match
    May 21, 2011: Call it the Battle of the Ricks. Florida Governor Rick Scott is determined to swipe the title of most business-friendly state from Rick Perry, his counterpart in Texas, which has held it for seven years.

    Good Post
    What Obama does not get is we need leadership that provides opportunity
    This economy will take care of the resty
    the country is dying from a lack of places to invest, opportunity to seek out

    How do we stop it?
    tax burden on the corporations is passed on to us
    a gallon of gas has 18 cents for every gallon in federal tax
