Pork bellies, hell. I'm cornering the market on frozen concentrated orange juice!

The biggest problems we are facing right now have to do with George Bush trying to bring more and more power into the executive branch and not go through Congress at all and that’s what I intend to reverse.

~ Senator Barack H. Obama

The biggest cost component of crude oil prices is fear. Isn't it strange - our president, a man bought and paid for by the oil companies his family has served for generations, has created so much fear in the oil markets the price oil now moves according to whatever comes out of his mouth. A new threat to Iran? Hey, there they go! More instability in Iraq? Why, there those prices go again! Hey, I got an idea, let's make a bogey man ought of Chavez! Whoa, there those prices go again! The fact is the foreign policy of the US government is responsible more than anything else for the high price of oil and gas, and foreign policy is the one part of government that is totally controlled by Bush and Cheney. The beginning of peace talks with Iran, a political solution in Iraq, the acknowledgement that Chavez is a minor irritant and no more, the annoucement of a huge scientific program along the lines of (or to replace the increasing useless) NASA, any of these things would cause an immediate drop in oil prices. You won't see any of it coming from Saudi Arabia's bootlick, George Bush. The biggest user of oil in the world is the US military. How odd that the man in control of it has the power to raise the price of it's most important commodity, and how odd he and Cheney come from that industry.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
