take a moment to reflect on all the good done by the right wing dominated supreme court (who is SUPPOSED to be impartial).
– selected our previous president, george bush – who gave us a 1.2 trillion dollar deficit and an economy losing nearly a million jobs per month when he left office.
– citizens united, allowing corporations to spend unlimited amounts of money in our elections. This allows even foreign governments and corporations to anonymously fund the candidate of their choice by way of superpacs.
– and now these same jackasses have the ability to fuck the country again with their decision on health reform.
Has any small group of nutjobs ever held such sway over the country in so short a time?
Even saint reagan didn’t do this much damage to the USA.
Or is it only ok because its corporations who are taxing us?
“Therefore, if todayâ€™s oil markets were based on supply and demand fundamentals, drivers would be paying about a dollar-and-a-half less per gallon, or around $20 less each time they fill up their gas tanks.”
In other words speculators (hedge funds, banks, oil producers like the Kochs) get a buck fifty for every gallon you purchase.
If you drive 10,000 miles at 25 mpg, that equals 400 gallons.
400 x $1.50 = $600
25,000 miles per year at 25 mpg?
If you have an older car or a truck?
It gets ugly quick.
at 15 mpg, assuming you only drive 10,000 miles = $1,000
Again – you did not elect the speculators.
Your speculator money is not going to a noble cause.
Instead we have propagandists for those same speculators trying to blame the president for high gas prices.
How stupid are conservatives? They think the deficit has grown under Obama. Can you believe that? 1.2 trillion before Obama to half that amount this year means the deficit is growing to mentally ill conservatives. Conservatives have exclusive ownership of the idiot gene.
