We are getting screwed! The Oil industries are reveling in the Palin/wall street debacle, reaping billions on profits at the pump. How come no one is talking about this? The free market at it’s best i guess. let it run free, get out the way and let the market decide what’s the best price for oil.

Demand? Well O.K., it’s fallen because the U.S. is in crisis mode financially. But a 15 cent drop in the average price of a gallon of gas is not a 40% drop.

US gasoline under $3.50 for first time in 6 months

If these bastards can raise the price 40% because of a Hurricane, they can lower it commensurate to the drop in the cost of a barrel of oil. But they won’t. Why? BECAUSE THERE IS NO REGULATION THAT SAYS THAT HAVE TO DROP THE PRICE.

Remember, these are Dupya’s and John McCains’ boys were talking about. They don’t play that regulation crap.

When will this country wake up! If Sarah Palin has said “I’ve taken on big oil”, then why haven’t you made this (current gas prices) an issue during your campaign speeches? BECAUSE THEY WERE WRITTEN FOR YOU BY PEOPLE WHO ARE PAID FOR BY BIG OIL!

you know whats! The U.S. economy is under attack. And not by Muslim extremist with towel heads and long beards. They’re wearing Brooks Brothers blue suits or their undies while sitting at a computer in their home day trading.

They are called oil speculators. And if the dollar falls to a point where OPEC decides to use the Euro instead of the dollar…

WE ARE GOING TO SEE A DEPRESSION!

These speculators have manipulated the rise in the cost of a barrel of oil by simply referring to “speculation” about supply/demand/reserve concerns in driving up the costs of oil.

Their “speculation” has no valid connection to what the actual oil supply/demand/reserve facts are. Google it and you’ll see…

I just filled up my tank and the price of a gallon of regular is $3.50 plus at just about every gas station here in Raleigh, NC.

I just had to pay a $333 co-pay for a ct scan for my daughter earlier in the day.

I’m pissed.

I stop by a convience store and over hear several NC candidates for Governor advertisements for my vote while I was in line to pay for an overpriced bottle of Sunkist. All of them say that I need a governor that won’t look out for the special interest people or it’s time for the “not so special interest citizens of the state of NC” to have someone in the Governors house that will look out for them.

I get home, check the news on the net, and I’m inundated with video reports showing Hillary dancing on stage to the tune of Rocky, or reading about Obama asking people can they smell what he’s cookin.

And George W. Bush has the nerve to go to NEW ORLEANS of all places and dances on stage, having a good ole time with some house servant looking brotha with an umbrella dancing with him.

I have no choice but to vote and become involved in the political process no matter what the outcome of the 2008 Presidency for the rest of my life. I will not go down without a fight. The reason I blog now is solely to voice my “perspectives on life and politics from a brotha’s perspective”.

No political candidate speaks for me. I’ve got a decent paying job. I’ve got health insurance. I’ve got a home with a regular mortgage. I’m raising two girls and my spouse is someone with a Master’s Degree who’s had to accept a job paying her far below what she used to make and provide what’s needed to have something left after the important bills are paid, just to pay her student loans that will soon kick in after her deferment expires (she was unemployed for 8 months prior to this February 08).

I am doing great by some other peoples standards, but I am struggling to stay afloat. But I will stay afloat. And I will make my voice heard. I am neither black nor a liberal or a conservative. I am a citizen of these United States of America.

Hopefully, those of you voting for Hillary understands what someone is saying when they say they are voting for Obama more for the revolution that it fuels. Voting for Hillary does not fuel revolution. It brings back some of the same special interest people back into power or keeps some who’s already in power, in place.

The Clinton history of pandering has been “vetted” by ones look back at Bill’s Presidency. Do you think the Clintons are scared of any of us? Hell no. Especially not Bill. He’s shown us that hand.

I want someone who cares what white people are going to say about their moves/decisions. What Black people care about their moves/decisions. What Hispanics and Asians care about their moves/decisions. I want us all to have that weight.

I hope Obama wins. And after him, I hope someone else wins who’s so new to the scene that they too have not been around long enough to owe something to a special interest. They would have to worry about what THE PEOPLE think of his or her decisions as President.

And not let these bastards get away with gouging us at the pump and laying people off because their investors like it when they cut costs and move jobs overseas so the profits can go up so more rich people either here or in Saudi Arabia, Japan or China can buy the stock at a higher cost.

Hopefully, there are enough people out there thinking this way and not the same number of fools who actually voted for GHWB not once, but twice.
