That sums it up very well!

 

I got another laugh earlier when I heard someone mention Gingrich with his $2.50 gas plan.

 

Does he realize that even if we built the whole KXL, drilled the hell out of the ANWR, the gulf, and the Atlantic coast, and tapped all the natural gas, not only would all of those take several years before any of it is available to consumers, but it would never sway speculation and its consideration of foreign demand to have any impact on our actual prices any time soon, and even then, it would never approach his fantasy level?

 

Also, tying the natural gas to oil is a sham because most people don't know the difference, but since few vehicles use natural gas, the supply of that resource would have nothing to do with gasoline, and natural gas prices have already dropped low enough that they've slowed production to limit supply.

 

In fact, the only way to effectively rein in gas prices would be to establish higher fuel efficiency standards to continue reducing demand, properly address the situations in the Middle East that have affected the existing supplies, and further regulating commodities traders to discourage the level of speculation that has manipulated the market.

 

Coincidentally, the fuel efficiency and regulation of trading are quite contrary to the Republican platform, so no one from that party would ever take such an action, and their overzealous plans for foreign policy would probably only exacerbate the supply problems.

Bravo on the Cartoon Kathy.....! We all know that our cars would have outstanding gas milage if the government wouldn't mess with auto makers to feed Big Oil's pocket books as well as theirs. If were going to buy a car/truck, we want our money's worth with gas an all, not a you get what you paid for their way through greed. Big Oil is like prositituion, you want, you pay for it. So sad.

Santorum's fear is based on the inverse proportion between intelligent people gaining actual knowledge vs. those who blindly follow religions.

 

It's much harder to break the smart people than the dumb ones.

You are so right on, Seth, and this is why the Greedy Obstructionists keep robbing more and more money from our education system.

 

Also, this is why they don't want us healthy, as unhealthy people are so stressed financially, and concerned with their health that they don't have the time and/or resources to monitor the corruption that the Party of NO is orchestrating.

 

An uneducated, unhealthy, society is the easiest to control and take advantage of and this has to be their main strategy as nothing else makes any sense at all.

Great post, Kathy.

 

I'd like to see the price of sanity and compassion lowered, at least for the Greedy Obstructionists as evidently they feel it will cost them tooooooooo much to truly care about other people, or the; fresh air, clean water, and precious environment that we, the people, need; to live, be healthy, and be happy.

Watch Stephen Colbert yell at a plant.

 

This is funny, if you don’t mind knowing that the whole world knows how stupid those that wish to be president are.

Perhaps, they should change the phrase "One nation, indivisible" to "One nation, with 99% INVISIBLE".  That would be more accurate, don't you think?

Dear Lord:

I know that I don't talk to you that much,
but if I could have just a moment
of your time today . . .

You have taken away my favorite actor,
Patrick Swayze.
You've also taken my favorite actress,
Farah Fawcett,
and my favorite singers,
Whitney Houston
and Michael Jackson.

I just wanted to let you know
that my favorite radio announcer
is Rush Limbaugh.
 
I'm also very fond of Pat Robertson,
Oral Roberts and the entire
Fox News Organization;

And I just love all of the Republican Presidential Candidates.   So, too, the bankers, Wall Street Moguls, and Insurance Companies.

ALL favorites!


Amen.
