Once OBAMA is CORONATED KING of THE AMERICAS all White money shall be turned over to build education centers to teach RACIAL EQUALITY. No one shall have the high cost of automobiles. We'll use PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION. It is safer and better, plus it makes everyone feel EQUAL. Remember the purpose of EQUALITY is to make everyone EQUAL. No one should have MORE than their brother or sister. Thank GOD for sending our deliverer Obama to make things right! Thank you KING OBAMA! WE LOVE YOU OBAMA!

Gas needs to be ten dollars a gallon. America needs to return to the horse. Too many dirt bags exist in America. Life unworthy of life. Pray gas goes so high people can only afford to drive to work and home. PRAY TO THE DEVIL TO BLESS US WITH $20.00 a gallon gasoline. Make these losers WALK.

Economy coming back, Repugs in total meltdown, world opinion up, the fossil fuels industry and the Wall Street Banks are going to do every thing they can to defeat this President.

Demand is down! Production is up. Exploration leases have been let. Gasoline it our biggest manufactured export.

There is NO justifiable reason for the price of gasoline to spike....except for the efforts of the speculators....especially the speculators like the Koch Brothers who are speculating as they control production and a committing $100's of MILLIONS to defeat the President.

OMG, the economy is not coming back, and pretending it is does not make it so. Gas prices in California are nearning $5., and that will creep across the country. Then the deadbeats will say, "I can't get a job because I don't have gas money." and we will have to give them more money for drinking, and smoking. This country is worse off today then it was the day Bush left for Texas, and only the very stupid would not know it.

I am in 65 and the last 2 quarters of 2008 and the first 2 quarters of 2009 were the worst since the First Republicants great depression! Still ain't good, but getting better....in spite of all the obstructionists Republicants.

Only a fool would attempt to dispute the FACTS that things are getting better.

"You're going to see a lot more staycations this year," says Michael Lynch, president of Strategic Energy & Economic Research. "When the price gets anywhere near $4, you really see people react."

I bet you know who doesn't take a staycation.

Well, old timers, gas has past what you honestly
can remember.. L.A.CALF. topped what even you have seen this early. Crying time yet?? Wait
just a little longer. And if you go for groceries, is &3.00 enough to pay for one pepper?
Thats just a sample.... Not quite old enouugh
to remember the great depression, you soon will
know what history tried to tell you about....
Is this really what you have been waiting for??
This is exacatly what all dems want when they
elect him again. Remember how you squealed
when it was a &1.80 when Bush left office, and
a pepper was .59cents. Put more mile on your
car and eat how the first lady tells you....
If it wasn't for what the country is going thru,
I'd laugh my head off for all of you.
*I want you all to remember how bad times use to
be.... Remember our national debt is reaching
18 trillion.......Just think, your living it
now, no memory needed.. Think the "rich" will
give their earnings to YOU???

Only one problem with that.
Most of the Obama loyal are all on government assistance and wouldn't know the damn difference. This kind of economy is only tough on the people who actually try.
The rest don't have to.

Oh yeah, and it shouldn't be a problem with Obama supporters for me to say that with the class warfare President in office.
Such a shame that his most loyal supporters will not get a chance to feel the pain until the entire country collapses upon itself and Uncle Sugar can't make his payments on time.
That's when the war in class warfare will really begin.
Doesn't really matter who said the words below, they are true and America has already had her Bicentennial back in 1976.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves largesse from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates promising the most benefits from the public treasury with the result that a democracy always collapses over loose fiscal policy, always followed by a dictatorship. The average age of the world's greatest civilizations has been 200 years.

Great nations rise and fall. The people go from bondage to spiritual truth, to great courage, from courage to liberty, from liberty to abundance, from abundance to selfishness, from selfishness to complacency, from complacency to apathy, from apathy to dependence, from dependence back again to bondage.
