    So we literally take over the middle east with strong arm tactics and don't reap the fucking benefits. this is the dumbest shit ever. read the VERY bottom of this article. I pulled the article from my work website at smith barney. this drives me crazy. we should have $1.50 gas right now. fuck everybody else, we are at war. "To the victor goes the spoils".

    yeah. bush and only bush has the entire impact on the entire gas price of the country.

    not so much....

    we are at war over gas prices and it doesn't do shit for us. I fought, my friends have fought, 4000+ have died for this fucking bullshit. gas was cheaper before the war. it should be cheaper now. i hate this shit. i can't wait for the day that i can leave the fucking country and just start a little bar on a beach somewhere warm and tropical.

    what civil war?

    i don't want to even worry about that shit. i'm so tired of everything that goes on in this country. all the politics, beauracracy, and bullshit. i'm going to be a very bitter man before i'm 30.

    you just have to bite the bullet and play ball. i guess i'm just going to buy a civic and get 35-40mpg. no more drifting, no more cruising, no more commuting. i can't afford it anymore. time to find a new hobby.

    This thread and the opinions contained within suck so much, it actually hurts.

    $7 a gallon gas is something enjoyed NOW by Canada, Italy, and much of Europe.

    The US is the ONLY country in the history of the world to conquer another land then lend money to it to rebuild. Germany, Japan, Italy again come to mind. We now see this in the middle east.


    Oil and it's prices are affected by instability in the Middle East, but moreso by the fact that the US has within it's reasonable borders 3 "Saudi sized oil fields" that we refuse to tap. As we did with food, we will wait until the commodity becomes such a huge price that we will tap it - And not tap it to save on our own citizens, but tap it to sell it right back to the same countries that supplied it before or fought us on the volatile oil markets - at a premium.

    If you were the US (or as you so eloquently put it "fucking bush") would you drill your oil and sell it for cheap, or sell it for a lot ?

    gas is high in canada because of taxes.
    they have free health care and free college. we don't.

    gas keeps going up because our dollar keeps going down.

    if you didn't get a 10k a year raise this year, and make a modest 50k salary, you are actually living on less than you did the year before.

    i'm putting in for a raise next month myself... or i'm going to start looking for something closer to home.

    i don't give a shit what the cost of gas is in canada and germany. they didn't partake in a takeover of an OPEC country. if you have control of something, you should get a fair price on it.

    technically, it was a raise... but there was no pay involved in it.

    we have a huge client coming in in contract soon... when they sign, i'm putting in for a 15k bump

    looks like the civil war never happened

    sorry John, you fail

    But I can spell out the future for you and I don't need a time machine

    Silverchild's Future Predictions

    The cost of energy will shrink the American Middle Class

    Cell Phones will be linked to Brain Cancer and kill millions

    The Republican Party will continue to move to the middle

    China will become a major world power

    America's economy will suffer a massive skilled labor shortage closely linked with retiring baby boomers

    American Health care industry will lose massive profitability driving away investors and lowering wages within the industry, profits from mortuary services will double in the next 20 years

    A labor union will form between many trades as big companies look to secure part time workers they don't have to pay benefits to
