Gee! What will the repubs think of next?

Sometimes it's just is too stupid to try and comprehend what they might be thinking in putting the blame on Obama for the current fuel prices? How stupid do these repubs think people really are?

MacCain's tv add putting the blame on Obama for the high price of oil-gas and everything else we have to buy. Please give me a brake will ya!

For openers, just look at W and his family's interest in oil. Look at Cheney and his connections to oil. And lets not forget about Condi who has a ship named after herby Chevron oil. Or Rumsfield who was the Sec of defense during the invasion of Iraq.

All of those in the Whitehouse cabinet are connected to oil in one way or another.

Bush has done nothing to curb the price of oil- gee, wonder way? Maybe it's his way of sending a message to everyone that he doesn't care about us or the current economy, where inflation is running in overdrive and the talking heads aren't giving you the full story.

Bush's plan is to drive the U.S. Government into the ground to totally bankrupt SSA, Medicare and other entitlement programs from the 1960's.

It has been the repubs intention to make SSA go away from when it was enacted after the stock market crash of 1929 when investors lost millions of dollars and were left poor and broke. During the 1980's Reagan put the SSA trust fund into the U.S. general accounting fund to make the numbers look better and started borrowing from it to pay the governments bills.

I don't know about you but the tv news agencies need to be honest with us and tell it like it is. We are heading towards a total meltdown and we need a plan to counter the current citation. There needs to be an enactment by Congress to to take oil off the futures market to stop the speculators from pushing our economy into the ground and braking everyone's bank accounts- that includes everyone's savings account to pay for gas, food and medicines.

We need a national movement to make Congress pass a bill and put the oil industry back under regulation like it was before Nixon made the decision to deregulate the oil companies in the mid 1970's which let prices for oil to jump from $.29/9 to $.56/9 per gallon and gold went through the roof and double digit inflation was left for Carter Admit. in the aftermath!

Write, call or visit your elected officials and demand they take action to stop the oil interests from total destruction of our economy.
