Funny how one week Obama is a Muslim socialist and the next week he's Shyster's business partner.

Notice how the price at the pump isn't going down? That's because it's about speculation not supply and demand.

Who says we don't have one party rule?

I agree.......with American Worker. While his blind hatred for Shuster borders on obsessive and creepy, the speculation must be addressed. What is the point of drilling in Alaska and off the coast if it is expected to do nothing for the price at the pump. It seems as if we only deplete our sources and the average person see's no direct benefit.

I don't hate Shyster, I hate all politicians. We have the most corrupt political system in the world. It is not based on values, morals or the will of the People. It is one giant auction with loyality only to the higest bidder and this is just one more example.

You haven't noticed it going down?

I guess you just aren't paying attention.

The most corrupt political system in the world? Really?

You aren't even TRYING to be serious, are you?

The article itself states that the price at the pump won't fall because of offshore drilling.

As for the most corrupt political system it has been repeatedly referred to as "the best political system money can buy." That's nothing but bribery made legal.

But prices are going down. It was $3.99 all over town a week and half ago. Today it's $3.89. If you claim you aren't seeing the prices at the pump going down, you aren't looking at the prices at the pump.

It's also been said, "the moon is made of green cheese." Just because "it's been said" doesn't make it true.

You may have legitimate grievances about how our political system operates, but calling it "the most corrupt in the world" is just asinine extremism.

I'm not saying that the price hasn't fallen. What I'm responding to is the right wing's insistance that if we allowed more drilling the price would fall. In this instance more drilling is not the reason that the price has fallen.

As for corruption include 7500 votes in Wisconsin suddenly appearing, Republican governors repealing citizens' rights to a say in their workplace, a Supreme Kangaroo Court where Corporations always win and when necessary even decide elections.

There are many bad governments in the world and some that we could argue are highly corrupt but they never said they weren't.

We continue to pretend that we have a functional republican democratic government and after Citizens United that is laughable.

perhaps most importantly this just delays more serious efforts to wean our economy off of oil.

My mistake. When you said, "Notice how the price at the pump isn't going down?" I mistakenly thought you meant that the price at the pump isn't going down. Thanks for clarifying.

I'll take the government of the United States over those of all of Africa, all of Eastern Europe, all of Asia but one country, and all of Central and South America but two countries.

Here are two articles you might find enlightening. one written by one of my favorite authors and moral philosophers for a very long time, the other a Nobel Laureate economist. If you want to believe in the sanctity of our political institutions fine then understand that is fast eroding and we my already be too late.

OOOH! A dime! How benevolent! If I have a $10,000 car that I'm selling for $60,000 and then drop the price to $55,000....I'm still ripping people off.

Shuster is correct to give "thumbs up" on an action that is way overdue by the Messiah. He finally realized that increasing domestic production is necessary.

A couple of years ago when gas just went over $4.00 a gallon the price of crude peaked at $146 per barrel. Last week it was $3.98 and oil was $105 tops. Seems to be some hugh profit taking here.

There was the most domestic oil produced last year since 2003.

On the way home this evening, I paid $3.79 - so I guess it came down $.20. I'm not celebrating a $.20 drop. I'm just pointing out that there has been a price reduction at the pump.

But the fact of the matter, the US has some of the cheapest gas in the western world. Compare with the $5.20 I paid in Niagara Falls two weeks ago,$3.79 isn't really something to **tch too loudly about.
