It's not just the heat that will keep
people away. Some won't have the gas
or won't waste the gas.

It's time for a unified march at all
of the US state capitols and 2 or more days that we the people don't
buy gas!

We have to do something. Because
politians aren't! We shouldn't
buy gas on the July 3rd and 4th,2008. Let's get the word out!!!

I've said it before on here and I'll say it again. The only thing that is going to bring gas prices down is if we lower the demand for gas. Stop going out of town to see a friend. Stop taking summer vacations even though "you" can afford it. Plan all trips to the stores that way you only have to make one trip to go to Wal-Mart, Bi-Lo, Home Depot, etc.

Lower demand, means lower prices.

We need to drill domestically, build refineries, and build nuclear power plants. I am all for alt fuel, but we can't switch to it overnight b/c it is currently too expensive for most of us and not efficient enough.

We all need to go and Vote Sanford's @ss out of office. If he would not get S.L.E.D to go in and investigate The DRUNK SENATOR an CROOKED JUDGE we don't need him in office.

For all you people that vote Mark Sanford back in office the next time there is a DUI driver that injures or even kills someone like your mom, brother, sister, or father, etc and they get off on a technicality then you can thank Mark Sanford. Just wait until it is him, or someone in his family that is struck by a DUI driver and see what he does then... I bet that person won't get off.

Yep, Lindsey needs to get out while the gettin's good. What a jerk- he backed up Bush on every ignorant decision he made. Same w/Joe Wilson- both would be good riddance!
