The only thing driving up the price of cotton, is the same thing that's driving up the price of crude oil, GREED on Wall St.!! The government is going to have to step in and regulate Wall St. The rich getting richer, and the poor, starving to death. Think back, their analysts stated that we would see gas prices hit the $4.00+ mark by summer, and by God we have. But they're blaming it on "unrest" in the Middle East. So, how did these analysts for see the unrest?? It's just a scam to keep this country crippled. And how come no one is screaming for Odumbo's head on a platter?? When gas prices hit $4, while GW was still in office, everyone blamed him. What gives??

Greed on Wall St? Good grief, do you need an economics education.

Yes, GREED. There is absolutely NO reason for oil prices to be where they are. As a matter of fact, prices should be much lower since the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, as the demand is down so much since this catastrophe. And if you'll recall 2008 when gas prices hit $4 a gallon, oil was selling at $140 a barrel. We're only at $112 a barrel and we're seeing $4 a gallon. Nothing going on to impact oil prices other than the greedy speculators on Wall St. But since you seem to be the "master" of economics, lets hear you opinion. Or maybe since you couldn't post anything intelligent before, you don't really know what YOU'RE talking about.

With people like you, no explanation is necessary. You wouldn't understand.

"teeje63", excellent take on the subject at hand! Must disagree on one small point. The rich are getting richer and reinvesting their money (hopefully not ONLY overseas???) to create jobs etc; the very poor are not starving, they are doing quite well with FREE government (local/state/federal)'hand-out ' programs. What do you think of those programs? Is there still a 'middle class'? Regardless of what we think, rich/middle/poor; we MUST pull ourselves up and decide to make an ATTEMPT as to which we wish to be...education/perseverance; there is still opportunity in AMERICA! I refuse to give up!!! Again, good read on your take!

Thank you. Actually the poor are not doing quite well. Those abusing the system are, but there are so many others that need help, that can't seem to get it. Too many having baby after baby to bolster their monthly check is killing this country. Not to mention the illegals in this country who are receiving benefits. The State of Florida's website about who qualifies for Medicaid is a joke. It lists all the reasons you may qualify, one of them being, "If you are a foreigner in this country, and are in need of medical care, you qualify for Medicaid. What a joke. Yet, people who have worked their entire lives paying into the system, who have lost their jobs, don't qualify. I think anyone on the system should be subjected to drug testing as well, and I believe that if you're on the system and you continue to reproduce, that you should be immediately removed from the system and the kids placed in foster care. Better yet, if you're pregnant and go on the system, you should be required to have them place the implant, so you cannot reproduce until you can sustain yourself and your children. I know that sounds harsh, but that would wake these breeders up. As for whether or not there is still a middle class, I believe it is shrinking more and more everyday. I think, unless something drastic changes, there will only be two classes, the uber wealthy and the poor. But you're right, we have to pull together and work together. I wish more people understood working hard to achieve your goals, but we've become a society in which so many feel they are "owed" a free check from the government. I'm with you though, I refuse to give up!

Really, NOT the end of the world! Yes, yes, after over 7 1/2 decades, I will NEVER give up on this greatest nation in the world; and the naysayers will surely castigate my opinion; like I care!!! That IS one of our major problems. Just bitch and do nothing about it! Many moons ago, went in the military to secure the GI BILL; cherished (past/present) THAT diploma. ANYONE can still take the exact same path today. I know, the rich can afford to send their children to college (yep, ain't fair-deserve FREE education); if you can't, again, do something on you OWN about it. I sorta suspected that I would not be one of the uber-rich. But my wife and I worked our butts off, looking forward to THE DREAM (two children, she wanting more, I knowing we could NOT afford more)! Very, very comfortable at this point in life. Go ahead and laugh; IT IS just waiting out there for all, persevere/get off your a$$e$, and apply yourselves. And ALL, local/state/federal entities, most especially, CITIZENS, MUST cease and desist from over spending when one does not have the funds to back up their overspending. Happy Easter one and ALL...do it starting in the morning!!! Myself, I'll be up around 1000 hours or later, figuring out what trouble I can get into this day! lol...NO pity party here!!!!!

LOL. Your post reminded me so much of my father, it was almost as if he had written it. He too, enlisted at the age of 16, spent 28 years serving our country. Raised 3 children, and gave them everything they needed to succeed in life. The main thing he taught us was to work hard, try our best, and never, never take the easy path. It worked on 2 of us, so I guess 2 out 3 ain't bad. LOL. You are so right about over-spending. My father owned one credit card, and paid the balance off each and every month. Refused to pay interest. Never financed a new car, felt that if he couldn't afford it, he didn't need it and he preached that to us constantly. I think the only thing he ever made payments on was his mortgage and that was only for about 15 years, and then paid it off. He wasn't wealthy, but he was secure. Thank you so much for reminding me of him this Easter day. He's been gone since '96 and not a day goes by that I don't miss him so. Happy Easter to you and your family.

Will leave you alone; not belabor our point/s any further, BUT, lol also! Carbon copy also of your dad, most especially on credit cards/finances in general. Do LIVE on this computer though, source of entertainment for me, as well as quite informative. Took quite a few years of pleading by the boys; finally purchased one. But emphatically refuse to purchase a cell phone. Don't even answer the regular phone; leave me alone, ha! Not to mention 'them there' blackberries/strawberries/twit ters/twithers etc.Never once in our life time have we EVERY paid interest on a credit card. As soon as we purchased a new car, we began saving for the next one. See, that is why we only had 2 children, didn't want to take THAT chance...lol, only kidding. I thought my boys never paid one word of attention to my actions/dissertations to them. My oh my, they are a splittin' image of the old man in their affairs. Makes me real proud of them and also of you! Kudos to you and your family and also have a most glorious Easter! Fair Winds and Following Seas...outta here!!! Keep on truckin', it IS really worth the run!

You're right. I'm no match for you. There's no way I can come up with a rebuttal to your in depth analysis of "Wall Street greed". You must have majored in Econ at some Ivy League school.

Agree 100%. It's a little more expensive, but a heck of a lot more durable. I've had a pair of hemp shoes for almost 20 years.
