It doesn't matter who's on the ballot. Just hold your nose if you have to and
vote the incumbent out of office. You may have to do it more than once, but
eventually we'll elect somebody who'll understand what he's supposed to be doing
But it costs a hell of alot more to deploy them halfway around the globe
than it does to have them sitting here going through day to day training.
And we also activated thousands of reserves for upto a year for most of
them. Where do you think their fulltime paychecks come from?
Including all the ships the Navy has deployed around the globe at an up
tempo for much longer cruises then they are normally acustomed to. Not even
thinking about what it costs to send hundreds or thousands of bombs into
that wasteland. So your blanket statement about we pay them while sitting
in the states is a pretty dumb observation.
This whole discussion is stupid... that guy is thinking with his ass... if
he KNEW anything about geo-petro-politics, he'd realize the current price is
lower than if we'd done nothing.
It still comes down to supply and demand. OPEC does NOT want North America
opening new production fields.
Gas prices in my area -Ohio- fluctuate with the spot market and
Marathon/Speedway, NOT BP or SHELL, sets them.
If HIS area has nothing but global brands, that's HIS problem.
One day the price can be 1.28 and the next 1.54... but guess what, it all
evens out to under 1.40
I was driving in the 60's when a typical pay was 150/week and I'm not
If he had any common sense he'd be bitching about the price of natural
gas... and you can thank the environmentalists* for that. If we dont find a
way to start burning coal to generate electricity again this economy is in
real danger of not being able to come back.
no dams.. .save the scenery and fishies
no new drilling
no fossil fuels at all
use wind (except where I live - see Ted Kennedy)
And the oil companies don't want us developing new sources of energy, like
solar and wind. And the administration that was not voted for by the
majority of Americans has a lot of rich people with oil and military
The current price of oil does not include the effects of global warming,
How come you failed to mention the safest, lowest cost,
non polluting source of energy, nuclear power? The rest
of the world is years ahead of the US in the use of clean,
safe, nuclear power. Wind and solar power can not keep up
with the growth in third stage electoral use, let alone replace
some first stage generation. If you believe power generation
is a source of the global warming theory, do your part, turn
off your PC. ;)

How about all those people that work within the oil industry, do
they count as average men? If you have a problem with the price
of fuel, contact you congressman, the governments makes the most
'profit' on fuel, in the form of direct and indirect
taxes. Try doing a little research before you comment, perhaps
then you will not seem so foolish. The federal government makes
more per gallon at the pump (About .18c) than the oil companies
(About .11c) or the station owner (About .7c.) The states
average .23c ;)
