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
