The stock market isn't going up because dumbass people voted for a SMART Marxist. Its going up because for one thing theyre printing money hand over fist and everyone with two nickels to rub together wants to put their money someplace thats making better return than the rate of inflation. The only place that is now is the stock market.<quoted text>
No, you need to thank the president that smart, hard working Americans voted for, for leading America out of the abysmal pit that GW Bush put us in, and into the prosperity you are enjoying right now as you describe. I think it's cool that you have well houses with clean drinking water on your land. I also think it's important to keep corporations in check when it comes to our country's resources. Not cripple them as many claim is happening, despite their record profits. But just to make sure there are reasonable checks in place to keep things like the wells on your property clean for drinking. You know that Bush deregulated the energy industry and they became lax in their safety precautions. This contributed to the huge amount of environmental damage that happed in the gulf coast. That BP oil rig that Halliburton built, leaked because they skipped over a safety bypass device that would have cost them around $10,000. That's why I mention the abstract amounts of money these guys are making a second. It has already been proven that they can buy and sell politicians. If you look how the money flows, every single Tea Party position in our government is directly paid by the Koch Brother oil billionaires. Why is corporate run government so much better than our government's social programs?
I am in no way suggesting that we live in the stone age, and I am the first to admit that I don't have the means to make my home solar, or ride a bike in the winter time. I am just saying that someone other than the oil companies needs to keep an eye on the resources of our nation. The gulf as far as I am concerned happened to every American, because it belonged to the people of this nation. Yah, I know. Socialist this, commie that blah blah blah.
I hope they frac the hell out of Ohio. Have you seen how much money regular folks are making in North Dakota?
