    How can voting a Muslim in for President be the lesser of two evils????? This A$$Hole thinks he is a King. He does whatever he wants. When Bush was in, gas hit $3 and people through a fit. More troops have died in Afghanistan under Obama than Bush but you never hear anything about that either. He is letting fags get married and nothing! This country better watch out because this guy is becoming a dictator. People follow him blindly and let him do anything he wants. He will win the next election because the new generation thinks it's cool to have him as President. During his 2nd term he will change the election rules and he will deem himself the Ruler of Obama States of America.

    He's a 1 term president. His own kind don't even like him. He let them down. They didnt get their free big screen TV and there free house.
    He's going down as the worst president ever.
    He's trying to eliminate the middle class so theres only the rich and only the poor because there the ones they control.
    Socialism cant control the self employed middle class which bacically runs this country, so they are trying to destry and abolish the middle class. They are doing a great job. One way is raise these high gas prices to cripple the economy.

    This is where it goes every time......

    There's unrest, so the speculators cause prices to rise...REGARDLESS of the supply/demand ratios, which SHOULD rule the market, but no longer do.

    THEN, the oil companies rake in higher profits, along with the MIDDLE MEN (where I put most of the blame) who are the ones who actually order the RISE of prices at the pumps by immediately increasing the price paid by station owners.........

    The sick part of this is that it takes MONTHS for higher priced crude to actually make it's way through the system to the pumps. SO, they're GOUGING the public, PLAIN AND SIMPLE, and it's OUTRAGEOUS.

    It ALWAYS happens, and no government entities charged with protection of the public FROM gouging ever do a blasted thing to change it.

    Right now, supplies are UP, and demand is LOWER than in past years. They talked about removing oil from the market process affected by speculators during the Clinton years.......but nothing came of it. Same with "drill here, drill now".........WE JUST NEVER LEARN.........

    Let me ask you this.........IF oil drilling and production in THIS country (which is nearly DEAD due to environmental wacko's) were put to a PUBLIC REFERENDUM, what do you suppose would be the outcome??

    I think you KNOW the answer. There is a very small minority (environmental activists) ruling over the vast majority in this nation, and they're bringing us to RUIN.

    They will shortly RUIN our classic car hobby if the people don't rise up, en'masse, to stand against it. We can't just leave it to SEMA or a few other organizations.....we must be involved personally, and begin to make waves in the localities, and at the State and Federal levels. If the PEOPLE are silent, they lose.

    Very well said. There should be some type of control on the Sweet crude commodity to stop these prices to take off like this. Oil is the 1 item we need in the US to keep us going, heat, transportation.
    When these prices rise out of control, it really puts a hurting on our economy.
    Right now I want to get out a get a few things at the store but I'm not going to go cause its not cost effective money wise. So I'm going to wait till I have to get out for more things.
