    Here's how the economic and political system of a nation is destroyed.

    Every price increase of just a dime per gallon of gasoline at the pump extracts approximately $5 billion from the pockets of U.S. consumers over the course of a year.

    On top of killing family budgets, with a dollar per gallon jump at the pumps picking our pockets of $50 billion per year, there is on the macro level an inverse relationship between the price of oil and the overall health of the economy -- oil price hikes deliver less job growth, less demand for labor, more unemployment, more poverty, more inequality, more inflation, lower real income increases, and smaller advances in the standard of living.

    Additionally, higher oil prices directly cause greater amounts of U.S. capital to be exported, both to pay the higher prices and to pay for the growing levels of imported oil.

    In 1985, the U.S. imported 25 percent of its oil usage. Today, it's 61 percent. And still we are placing restrictions on increases in domestic production, both for oil and other sources of energy.

    A few days back, President Obama, rather than sticking around a couple hours to explain to the American people or to the U.S. Congress why we were going to war in Libya, flew off to Brazil to hand out a permit to allow deep sea oil drilling in the Gulf of Mexico to Brazil's state-run oil company, Petrobras. Capitalist companies in America need not apply.

    This particular foreign deal was an especially snug and nostalgic fit for Obama. Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff is somewhat of a Latin form of Obama's old Weather Underground chum Bernardine Dohrn.

    The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama. It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president.” -- Author Unknown

    Move to Venezuela. Price of a gallon of gas 15 centavos. Ha...Ha...Willow. You don't care about this country OR the price of a strategic commodity like fossil fuel. You morons will pray to the alter of the multinational oil companies until ALL of our money has been handed over to them. You will blame EVEYRONE but your selves all along the way. The ONLY way to guarantee a cheap fixed price on fuel is to nationalize it as our highest national security objective and have the government take over control of the oil industry in our country. BUT that will never happen as long as stupid people like you blame everyone and anyone but the real culprits in that industry. You idiots blame Obama. The president does not set gasoline prices. If he could it would have to be nationalized. Even a po-dunct little country like Venezuela knows that. Apparently they are smarter than we are.

    15 cents a gallon vs 4 dollars a gallon? You choose dummy. No wait...let's see if gas goes to 10 dollars a gallon. Ya that's the ticket. Guess what shit for brains??? There is a price where America will just say FUCK IT!!! Nationalize the motherfucker!!!! BUT guess what else??? The price of everything else will be so sky high by then it won't make a tinker's damn worth of difference because morons like you will have waited too long to wake the fuck up.

    Just sayin.....:eusa_whistle:

    Huggy doesn't get it. If the government took over the beer industry a 6 pack would cost $50 in a week. Oil is up because we are not utilizing our capacity to find and refine because of the policy of the current teleprompter reader. The guy is killing us.

    Now that the Christian Fundamentalists have won a majority in the House what have they done to help the economy?
