Okay since most blacks and Hispanics and Now even Asians decided it's revenge against white people. I want to know, Are you truly better off than you were 5 years ago? I mean according to the latest unemployment numbers in Indiana . It doesn't add up on whose working. I never trust the national economic numbers. Not with whose running it from the white house. I ask again are you alright under The Savior Obama with gas since he has gotten in being an avg of $4 bucks a gallon. I sure don't remember blacks liking gas even when it was at $1.80 under GWB, I saw the news reports of them saying This is ridiculous to the reporters, The same black people even were angry about the high unemployment under GWB, It was about 4.5%. It went up in his last term after the Dems took the house, Then took it all in 2008. Yet I don't see the anger for Obama by blacks, Why is this? I would truly like to know,Since black unemployment under Obama has doubled. Black on Black crime has doubled. Now how is it so many blacks hated GWB when things weren't as bad, Yet they are far worse under Obama in every direction, Look at the national debt, That same debt Obama called GWB unpatriotic , When it was 6 trillion in the hole. Now under Obama in less than 4 years in, He has it at 17 trillion. So Obama who slammed GWB for spending too much. Has spent 7 trillion dollars , His ole lonesome self. That's just plain unpatriotic is what Obama told a crowd when he campigned for the white house in 2007.In many cities black unemployment has tripled under Obama as the President, Detroit Motor city nationally is at about 10% and higher in the black regions. Detroit where Obama handed out cash to the black people are broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, This is motor city where the big 3 car companies churn out Obama motors. Yet they are dying under a supposed rebound of the auto industry .I ask are you better off now. I guess if you are one of the 60 million now on welfare under Obama. I guess not ever having to work and getting freebies, I guess you could say You are in Nirvana now under Obama. Guess what just like those credit cards where you charge them to the max, Eventually THE BILLS FOR THEM C0OME DUE, Then who pays for them? What gets cut? You will soon see. Now Obama says he is for cutting entitlement programs . How's that for the Hope and Change you voted for again, Just because Obama is black. shame on you,. I can't say I pity you at all.

Current gas prices have little to do with Obama, although he could take action to open up drilling which would theoretically lower prices in the future.

His most harmful action by far has been Obamacare. This single piece of legislation has already resulted in the loss of hundreds of thousands of US jobs. Huge companies are laying off thousands to be able to cope with the additional expense (via the MDET) while maintaining a profit. It is crippling the industry in the short-term. There is only speculation as to what it will do long-term.

His incompetence is astonishing. The man has no real world experience and he is leading the United States into devastation that will take decades to reverse. I won't say the people who voted for him deserve it, because nobody deserves this. It is absolutely ridiculous. Millions of people will lose their jobs and their sanity as a result of Obama's policies. He will ruin more lives through his executive actions than have been lost in all wars with US involvement in the past 40 years. It is simply amazing to me that this man was re-elected.

That is where you are wrong, He can do plenty, First and most He can allow drilling in ANWAR and allow that keystone pipeline to be built. He can repeal the gas tax which mom and pop gas stations are burdened with daily, Yes people don't realize how much the Mom and Pop stations have to eat it on that gas tax in any profit they might earn.That is why gas is up there, To collect those huge gas taxes on the gas.You also forget Linda Obama when it came to even coal companies, Said don't even try and open one up on my watch, He has crushed the coal industry , We still use plenty of coal to keep those electric plants fired up. Linda in many ways he has hurt how we obtain energy sources by blocking them with regulations and fines and moratoriums . He used the Gulf oil spill to put many of those rules into play and halt much of offshore drilling. He has only allowed some drilling on private lands, But said no on federal lands. That's where we can tap into plenty of natural gas, Now he has his Hollywood turds whom he bailed out protesting fracking. Yes he gave HOLLYWOOD 430 million bucks from that last sock it to the middle class and poor tax he gave us all at the sum of 650 billion dollars, Now his dems and himself want to hand the tax payers another 1 trillion dollar tax hike on the latest sequester joke.This has nothing to do with speculators or OPEC, This is all Obama and his energy policies to crush fossil fuels. This is pure politics, Obama and his leftist dem's know that Republicans get the most from oil companies in contributions and also from coal companies , That is why the same dems go after big tobacco for the very same reason. They care not one bit about the environment , That;s a smoke screen. Most of them ride in huge limo's and huge jet planes, They live in mansions that leave a carbon foot print bigger than any one family could fathom . They are Liberal wine sipping champagne limo and lear jet setters who party like rock stars on tax payers dollars.

If you believe all that, more power to you. I choose to believe that gasoline is a global commodity, and the pricing is based off of crude oil prices set daily through interactions of thousand of buyers and sellers in both pyhsical and futures markets. At its core, pricing itself is based on the simple economic theory of supply and demand (maybe you have heard of it). The price you and I pay when we get a gallon of gas is roughly as follows:

70%- price of crude (raw material)
15%- refining cost and markup/profit
15%- governmental taxes

Of the tax amount, roughly half is state excise tax, so not Obama's domain. If you are looking to pin these prices on Obama, I just want you to know the facts. The fact is that federal taxes are about $0.30 on a $4.00 gallon of gas. There are plenty of things Obama is actually responsible for that are way more harmful than gasoline prices.

SS and Medicare might be good in theory, but the government lacks the discipline to properly administer these programs.

Obamacare has been thrown together without any thought or concern as to how it will impact this country. Obama's main objective here was obviously his legislative legacy. There are ways to address domestic healthcare without prematurely implementing costly taxes that have cost hundreds of thousands of jobs, but there is so much more to this puzzle than simply insuring the uninsured. Obamacare can not and will not ever work in a government as undisciplined as the one currently sitting in Washington DC. They want all this control, but they do not have the intellect or resources to manage what they think they need to control. They need to fix their current addiction to overspending prior to trying to implement the most costly healthcare program on the planet. That is just common sense.

50 years ago it might have been feasible. The government is just too wasteful right now. The United States cannot afford Obamacare until the current budgeting/spending issues are resolved. This isn't my opinion. It is a mathematical certainty that it is unaffordable.

Linda; a (former) Lib friend of mine had the audacity to tell me that Governement economics are not subject to the same set of scientific mathematic laws as our own personal household economy.

I about lost my mind laughing at him.

Money is a construct. It represents things and services.

the government constructs money.

Your friend is right Where there is a will, there is a way. It is a magical formula.

Our government wills this because the people will it. It will happen.

Wow, I grew up in Indianapolis and can not believe how incredibly stupid most of you are. Obamacare is the next best thing to SS and Medicare? Wow. I guess none of you have read up on how many people are being reduced to 29 working hours. Considering most are living pay check to paycheck now on 40 hrs. How insurance premiums are going to sky rocket. Obama is the first President to ever cut Medicare. And I assume most of you support Obama's decision to put people in homes they can not afford, again- leading us to our next housing crisis. Your freaking sheeple! I am sooo glad I got away from your socialist ideologies.

Can you give me the name of the country that doesn't have socialist ideologies? I'd be interested in the short list.

The true racists are the people who voted FOR Obama because of his skin color. There were many millions who did so. So where is the real hate?
