You're missing the point.
Watch money masters on google video.

The corporate international banking which owns the misnomer fed res bank is the real bad guys. Of course they are teamed up with OPEC.

I'd say that its good the house wants to fight the international scam thats trying to take down the US economy to suck up even more wealth and power, just like black tuesday.

Or perhaps the house wants the oil to go up and the so does the pres. -so the white house pretends they are going to veto, but it never gets to that.
who knows.

But i want things to crumble. We have free energy and we need to get pissed enough to unleash it on the world to end the 300 year reign of the money masters.

THe darkest hour is right before the dawn. WE need more pressure. We have alot to lose, and the pampered americans will go down screaming when we cant afford to pay for TV. We'd go insane if we didnt have our 5 hours of worthless TV to watch every day.

We dont need to invest in alternate energies. We need to invest in bringing out the ones we already have. Tesla was on to this stuff 75-100 years ago. These guys new it was real and have quotes about it. THeres no way we havent figured it out by now with trillion dollar black budgets or whatever. Not to mention the money the endless money of the money masters/money changers

First off learn how to spell "asinine" fool. if you want to get into an insult war bring it on !!

Secondly I would bet that my education level is much higher than yours.....Did I call you stupid ?? did I call you "uneducated" ???

No I did not. yet you do it to me based on what I feel about the whole gas-price fixing issue.

Insults come from when a nerve is hit and the offended feels backed into a corner.

Who's insulting? I call them like I see them. All you can do is criticize spelling and the fact that I used the words 'stupid' and 'uneducated'? You've not offered ANY counter-arguments to back up your original statement so I stand by those terms I used and what I said. But I'll make the arguments again without the colorful descriptives. Try to stick with the content of the post.

Bush isn't driving up the price of gas but you and all the other Bush-haters out there want so desperately to believe that he is the cause for everything that's going wrong with this country right now. News flash, the next person elected into office, Democrat or Repulican, isn't likely to turn things around within the next 4 years. Gas prices will continue to rise, the mortgage crisis will dwindle down on its own, not because of anything the government has done or will do, the issue of illegal immigration hasn't EVEN BEGUN to come to a head yet, the price of food isn't going to come down even if the price of gas comes down (for the same reason gas prices are skyrocketing - demand), health care and social security are about to become huge deals regardless of what system is in place because this is about the time when the baby boomer generation is retiring. Need I go on? Sure, Bush has made some dumb decisions but I submit that his predecessor did also. Neither one is to blame for the state of the economy right now.

Here's what you can blame for our problems: Inflation; overpopulation; unscrupulous predatory lenders; socialists; American greed and selfishness when it comes to driving gas guzzling vehicles and food consumption; the American media which is completey unscrupulous and will do anything for ratings and advertisers; American companies who buy patents and shelve them to keep money coming in on old tech; and a whole long list of other things.

Care to reply to the subject matter?

Scammers calling scammers scammers is a pure scam!

Hope the price keeps going up.. and up... and up.. and up..

My motorbike cost me $34 NZD to fill up on the weekend... sure is getting fun to pay for :\ It's one of those fast shiny superbikes, but with the fuel economy of a tiny car, roughly 5x the power output with 1/8th of the weight...
I'm getting a scooter as well anyway.. $5 to fill up and goes for ever on the tank.

You need to chill out.

And while you are probably right that Bush isn't all to blame for gas prices, it doesn't matter. He's screwed everything else up, and he might as well take the fall.

Actually, he did screw the economy over. And due to the economy being in such a poor state, more barrels are not being released causing demand to out-weigh supply (causing the spike).

So in a way, Bush has hurt us with gas prices.

But the oil companies and apparently the market speculators are truely the ones to blame.

Unbelievable this has to go down as the most ridiculous and asinine act of congress to date. Hey, Canada raised the price of maple syrup let's sue them! This nation has gotten to the point where suing is a part of normal life. And to think you can sue another nation, who has kept the shrinking dollar as the currency instead of going to the stronger more valuable Euro, is STUPID! Does anyone in the US do any research anymore before making such worthless statements or do they just take their cues from the people who thought they found Jan Benoit's killer. Remember that major piece of breaking CNN news. Ok for all you uninformed zombies, say we sue and win...lol...now what?
anyone? anyone? OPEC now says fine we won't sell to you anymore. With growing nations (India, China) more than happy to take up the slack then what? Let's sue them too for buying our portion of oil? This country imports more oil than it produces. So if you think it's bad now, wait till your illustrious leaders sue and we are all riding bicycles. You do know what a bicycle is right? If not here the link :en.wikipedia.org...

I do not understand, though, how it can be considered free enterprise if oil is a necessity, and the price is set on pure speculation.


....and the OPEC members are a CABAL, and NOT in competition. free enterprise is not possible when ALL producers of a product agree to all sell at the same price.
'they' have 'us' bent over a barrel.

i feel ALL natural resources should belong to the public, and (more importantly) managed by the public. all revenue from natural resources should likewise be distributed amongst the people.

one man, or corporation, 'owning' priceless, irreplaceable gifts of the earth is plain WRONG.
america should take a philosophical cue from the REAL 'americans', ie. north american aboriginals. those people knew how to LIVE(with respect to nature and each other), back in the day.
