Oil prices have steadily rose over the last year, and experts are worrying further increases could snuff out an already-fragile global economic recovery.It's not peak oil, it's price fixing - big oil is now telling the press that it's the Euro that is the cause of their national price-fixing scam (and make no mistake, it's a con-job). So now we see that supposed Democrat, Prez Obama doesn't mind playing this game with the American people either. Everything Obama is doing is a big a lie, just like Bush and Dick Cheney were doing, every time those two opened their mouths.
President Barack Obama is expected to announce Wednesday his plan to open oil and natural gas drilling off the Atlantic Coast and Gulf of Mexico. The proposal aims to reduce the nation’s reliance on foreign oil, which theoretically could hold down prices for U.S. consumers.

Frank Rich does gets this part right:
As no less a conservative authority than The Wall Street Journal editorial page last week, the bill's prototype is the health care legislation Mitt Romney signed into law in Massachusetts. It contains what used to be consider Republican ideas.
"what USED to be considered" - Jeebus, Obama's health care bill is STILL a Republican idea that health insurance companies everywhere must be in great celebration over right now, (socialism, my ass because there has never been a more capitalist, corporate friendly idea, ever) and it's all back-up no less by the unforgiving IRS goons.
And now it appears that Obama is going to:
"open up new vast expanses of water along the Atlantic coastline, the eastern Gulf of Mexico and the north coast of Alaska to oil and natural gas drilling, much of it for the first time, ..."
Can ANWR be far behind? I'm sure that the ever stupid Al Gore is going to get right in line with this wonderful new liberal idea same as those netroots idiots are bound to love it as well. If nobody in the netroots has figured out by now that Obama is not a liberal or a Democrat of any kind - it's because they're every bit as stupid as the those tea party people and that's a fact. Obama never was a liberal - he is a stealth Republican who doesn't have a liberal bone in his body.
Does anyone remember that Obama wis supposed get Americans OUT of Iraq in three more months from now?

The major oil companies would have to give up control of Wall Street and the US congress and we all know that that ain't never, ever going to happen, not in a million f*** years. But wait, let us think about Texas seceding for a moment, okay. If Obama allows the US to own GM, why then make another oil powered car, ever? I mean really, if one could find a way to turn saltwater, for instance. into a combustible, well would not that make oil obsolete and over-night roo, wouldn't it?
This guy found a way to separate particles and ignite saltwater compounds, and of course, saltwater is the most abundant resource in the world. Si kets umagine a world without oil dictatorship, - no more war for oil ever again. Imagine what freedom fells like without slavery to the gas pump and the profit eating, rabid price fixing done by oil companies.
So now we can see that under Rush Limbaugh's flags of stupid hatred in Texas, Texas would surely secede into just another Mexico, really. I mean it's a right to work state, because in Texas you have the right to work for nothing at all, particular if oil should go belly up, so that like all those masses of poor that make up the Banana Republic of Mexico, Texans could work like dogs with no rights whatsoever and like it or not, I guess Texans could join a drug cartel and sell drugs or work for nothing. Whatever Texans - but please, oh please don't ask ExxonMobil about seceding from the US, because they aren't with Texans on that issue or even on the same page as I can guarantee all by my lonesome ro Texans that Big Oil would freak out, and that isan unfortunate matter of fact.
Texans, please. please try not to get stupid on us here.

If only more American workers would give up their standard of living so Rick Wagoner and all those unnamed board members that got the axe right along with Mr. Wagoner could get more money after looting the company and all it's shareholders. JEEBUS! One must ask, what did Ford do right? They have labor union workers too.
Took a snapshot of this from the Wall Street Journal (must say, I'm surprised Murdock allowed the WSJ to back stab another member of the AEI like that, really)!
Mr. Wagoner, like other top GM executives, doesn't get severance, according to a GM filing on March 5. The filing says Mr. Wagoner was eligible for GM's executive-pension plan at the end of 2008. The filing lists the value of the pension as of Dec. 31, 2008, at $20.1 million.
According to the filing, Mr. Wagoner also had accumulated almost $535,000 in deferred compensation -- though that balance shrank from $766,000 during 2008.
Mr. Wagoner is also eligible to receive equity grants valued at roughly $366,000, according to the filing. A GM spokeswoman said those grants were long-term incentive compensation awarded in earlier years.
But still, Obama won't do a thing about those piano wire threatening bank bonus guys, except of course, to tell everyone, via sending his beloved loyalist, Mr. Summers out to tell us all that they can break contacts between rich people and taxpayer money. These are bonus that would NEVER have happened if bailouts weren't possible, even as as we all saw that Preznut Obama had no problem selling out the 4th Amendment of the US Constitution because huge telecoms, oil companies, big pharma and all those too big to fail banks own Obama and his administration, same as they owned the Bushies and all the GOP.
And furthermore, we all know that GM will end up in bankruptcy court anyway, right? The GOP will push for labor union busting court doctrine because the GOP would never dream of working with Obama and certainly not the average working class citizen of the US either because if you ain’t a member of the AEI, than you just don’t matter to that crowd – and because we can't compete with foreign countries unless a lot more Americans are living like people in third world countries. So, I'm waiting till we all get to the point where we’re ready to tell our congress that we're in control here and not their crooked, rich friends. It hasn't happened yet, however, when the unemployment numbers get closer to 15%, and they will, perhaps by then, enough Americans will start to wonder what the hell is going on in DC? Yeah, that and WTF ever happened with the damn press members and supposed acts of journalism in last few years?

A Republican that looks and acts nothing like a Bush family member!
Whatever were those Florida voters thinking when they elected this guy? Was it in respite of the supposedly popular Gov. Bush? I guess those homeless Floridians think the same as the rest of the nation does. So on that note, good-bye Rush Limbaugh Republicans - ain't going to miss you one bit at t-all.

Professor Michael Economides, Univerisity of Houston:
Economides said he sees the price of oil going from $40 per barrel now to near $200 per barrel in 18 months partly due to geopolitical issues. But he said some of the problem in the oil industry is the fear factor.
"They always want to believe the worst," Economides said.
As a result, a downturn feeds on itself.
"It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy," he said.
Economides said the one thing that will certainly send prices up toward $200 is the headline, "Israel attacks Iran."
Barring that, Economides said that by September 2009, he is expecting the natural decline in production due to the aging of oilfields coupled with the reduction in drilling activity to bring the supply and demand into equilibrium.
And now we know exactly WHY it was that Dick Cheney wanted Israel to attack Iran.
But frankly, at $ 200.00 a barrel for oil, that kind of price would generate an end of fossil fuel domination, simply because some Americans would refused to be a slave to that kind of consumer price raping. More than a few Americans would go into their collective garages and come up with somehing else, something other than fossil fuel energy, so Mr. Economides better hope that Israel doesn't ever bomb Iran. Those old Mad Max movies really were works of fiction and if Mr. Economides wants to find out how to go out of business overnight, that my gosh, by all means, bring on the $ 200.00 a barrel crude oil and lets see where that leads.

"It will obviously take much more than that to put the GOP into a position to challenge the blue wall -- "
The message is clear. Rush Limbaugh "tear down that Democratic communist wall"? The commies are taking over American as opposed to Broder's beloved capitalist controlling mafia members on the Hill. I don't know what Broder fears so much as long as those Repugs were able to preach tax cuts in order to tear down the Stimulus Bill into something no honest, non-senile American could possibly believe in. At this point perhaps it far better to let the banks fail, after all, Americans are getting nothing out of this new funny money business debt bill. There is nothing that makes the Stimulus Bill a stimulus or what it really is, a contract with American to pretend the funny money has any meaning, something that no half-wit US citizen should sign on too.
Right now, we are being lead to believe that poor Nancy Pelosi's misconception of a Stimulus Bill has Barack Obama furious about it's creation since it had too few corporate tax cuts. What was she thinking? Perhaps now, Obama should apologize for Nancy the way he did for that old spineless majority leader of the past, Tom Daschle, or better yet, just pick some Republican congress member to fill Tom's empty post in more examples of his bipartisan love-fest, and then, invite the GOP for more drinks at the Whitehouse.
Mean while TMP is wondering why Reid doesn't make Repugs filibuster?
The comical thing about Harry is that he never seems to know when to quit or when to quit. Harry Reid plays this mournful scene over and over again. I called it "the resigned loser," - take one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine.... At some point, I have to wonder why Democrats like this kind of non-leader/loser so damn much? It must be because its quite the act really, and citizens or at least the netroots fall for it time and again. Those mean old Republicans! Dems only want to pretend its all the Repugs fault so they picked this hapless, lovable old loser, Reid to play the "beaten-up old man" over and over because, frankly it's quite the boon for Dems that don't like creating bills that only help average Americans citizen any more than those Repugs do. I mean, just look at all those grand influence peddled gifts and the people that Republicans always party with as they write off the nation bit by bit, that as oppose to the non-party Dems get for helping out the average boring American citizen. Oh wait, they had the AT&T Telecom Party, didn't they?
At this point in time, we do need Ronald Reagan after all. Its time to just let the banks go, just let em fall, because they're going to fall anyway. When you get right down to it, money is merely an illusion.
