And about the 7-8 dollar reference, he isn't going to use a not yet made type/rate of currency that no one knows of - like 15 NWO notes or something of that sort. He has to make it where we can relate.

Well I can't relate to a dead dollar that costs $7 for a gallon. Zimbabwe would rejoice at $7 trillion for a gallon and that currency is still alive.

Colonel Qaddafi has ordered the disruption of Libyan oil exports by destroying pipelines to the Mediterranean, sources tell Time's Robert Baer
Oil has been spiking on fears of a Libyan disruption. Already today the country declared force majeur, effectively canceling oil contracts.
So far the order is only rumor, but if it's true.
There's been virtually no reliable information coming out of Tripoli, but a source close to the Gaddafi regime I did manage to get hold of told me the already terrible situation in Libya will get much worse. Among other things, Gaddafi has ordered security services to start sabotaging oil facilities. They will start by blowing up several oil pipelines, cutting off flow to Mediterranean ports. The sabotage, according to the insider, is meant to serve as a message to Libya's rebellious tribes: It's either me or chaos.
My Libyan source said that in order to understand Gaddafi's state of mind we need to understand that he feels deeply betrayed by the media, which he blames for sparking the revolt. In particular, he blames the Qatari TV station al-Jazeera, and is convinced it targeted him for purely political motivations. He also feels betrayed by the West because it has only encouraged the revolt. Over the weekend, he warned several European embassies that if he falls, the consequence will be a flood of African immigration that will "swamp" Europe.
No mention of terrorists or iran or china (as a future problem especially if they don't moderate) or hezbollah or anything specific. Just guns and planes and factories. No wonder you're so confused.

Don't worry about the price of oil, we'll fight for it. In the meantime we'll open up all the other oil fields to sustain our war effort. The oil field workers can sustain themselves by eating seal, walrus and bear meat. The people will be required to sacrifice, make victory gardens but we'll sustain the war effort for our children's future and their children's futures. Total war ain't so bad, everyone will be employed either on the front lines or in factories producing tanks, planes, bullets and guns to help our boys over there!
For God, King and Country! Who's with me!?!?

why does the rulling elite allow old Lindsay to talk?
I think its simply that the rulling elite are a bunch of arrogant pricks. they have the money and power we don't. What are we going to do about it? not much, so who cares what they let old Lindsay say.
They are like the bulley kid, they won't be feared. no anxiety will be created unless they talk a big game. They want to keep us scared and down so they let their plans be known.
