Your Say

Thanks for the fortitude to struggle on even under the thumb of government regulation and oppression.

Is anyone else feeling weird that the prices dipped heavily right before the mid terms, then did not go back up after the huge reaming taken by the majority party? I want to say that maybe some overlords of taxation turned some valves, and then lost control after they lost the election, anyway.

My delight knows no bounds when I read in major news outlets @ how "government, industry and environmental interests are complaining" about the gas price relief. What else needs to be said?

Thanks, oil futures, for driving prices down and we can sure use the break.

We have the potential to cover all of this country's oil needs for the foreseeable future. The Keystone Pipeline, "fracking" in some areas, loosening the restrictions on existing oil fields.
We can do without foreign oil. Palin suggested this back in '08 when she was crucified by the press.
We shoulda listened but I fear the Socialists already had enough clout to stifle her and other forward-thinking Conservative politicians.

Money and Power and Control. Everything political is about these three dynamics.
Point is, We the People should be the ones, get the money and gain control and power. It's our country, isn't it?

A trade-off is occurring and you ain't gonna like it. Having said that, I should have waited another week to fill up. sigh

Much pressure will now be brought to keep the Keystone pipeline from being built, saying we don't need it. The Watermelons will point to the oil and gas prices as proof. The same for stopping fracking; NatGas is plentiful.

Now is the time to put the claw hammer in your politicians nose and lead him/her to the soundproofed room where one can introduce them to common sense and the common man's preferences.

Failing to get their attention, turn the hammer around and dimple their forehead instanter.

Information can be adsorbed in different ways. Just make sure they DO get the message.
