There is NO "price-fixing" you idiot! And the effects of speculation in those commodities does not render the Supply & Demand paradigm moot, by any stretch of the imagination. The only thing open to discussion or debate here is your IQ. Is it in the Moron or Idiot range?

Now would be an appropriate time to say "go fuck yourself you fat moron", but that would be rude, so I won't.

Instead, I'll simply point out that there is ample material here that very clearly shows to anyone with at least a 10th grade reading comprehension ability, that what we're experiencing as a nation from the standpoint of gasoline and crude oil prices has as much to do with supply and demand as it does with the phase of the moon.

That would also be rather unoriginal coming from someone well-known for such pearls of creativity as "you Obama-hating racist, you!"

"...phases of the moon..." Now that would help to explain your illogical non sequiturs. Get a grip!

You'll have to do better than that; those words are not mine.

Perhaps. But it's not like you disagree with the sentiment.

Perhaps even less. The cause and the culprits are clear to any who care to see...

I thought he was a drip.

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 thats what I intend to reverse.

It's wasn't impersonal to the 20,000 folks that lost their jobs at Enron due to his bad decisions. It wasn't impersonal to the MILLIONS of folks who paid higher energy costs due to his greedy business decisions. It wasn't impersonal to the State of California which paid millions of Tax dollars to cover expenses for the blackouts caused by Enron's manipulations of the energy grid.

Ken Lay was the CEO of Enron. That is where the buck STOPPED. He was indicted and convicted of Securities Fraud. Lay was NOT a good man. He was the personification of what is wrong with Corporate America. He FAILED. Ken Lay was a loser of epic proportion.
