In 2006 the economy was INCREDIBLE and gas was reasonable. What major change has occurred? The election.
and the bills started rolling in.....
and the "illusion" of prosperity started to evaporate.
and the dollar's value shrank...
and lo and behold!! all of a sudden, everything costs more, gas included!!
why is the dollar worth less....oh, ya, we're a nation in debt, up over our heads in it, and we've spread the risk of this debt across the globe
hitting every other country's economy.
why are we in debt like this? well, because, big corps are god, the little people are just the peons, they can work for peanuts...we'll give them
things like welfare and credit cards to tide them over no problem. and well, the government can print, or borrow however much money that they wish,
after 6 or 7 presidents avoiding the IMF and their request to audit our banking system, why did Bush have to finally relent?? could it be...that
he's borrowed so much danged money from the world bank, from china, ect....thus...giving them the right to go nosing around?
don't tell me that the republicans didn't have a part in all this...that's a bunch of crap! the two parties walk hand in hand, one taking our
wealth and handing it to the corps, the other taking our wealth and using it to pacify the working class when they become unwealthy enough to afford
to put a meal on the table because thier wages have turned to crap.
it's time to send a wake up call to both parties. look around you, find someone who you think could run this country better than the two clowns they
have running, and write their danged name on the ballot! maybe if the majority of the american population vote for unknowns and neither party gets
even close to the majority of the vote....they'll both go away.
