Are you getting laid on that job?
Or with the price drop the job is gone?

There's a little place on I-94, just north of the Illinois / Wisconsin border, called the Mars Cheese Castle.

Go there, order the Gouda Buddha, and pray a little.

I'd have to lay off myself. But I'm safe, petroleum buyers have to know how shitty the market is too.

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.

There's a place like that in Indiana too, along I-65 north of Indy that I drive by in my travels, I forget the name of it, best damned ice cream in the US. I'll look for a Gouda with an image of The Virgin Mary embedded in it.

A fromage that is an island unto itself.

The Virgin Gouda may even get a rise out of an old abstinent like me.

It should be a nice war.
Well, that's an improvement, but if you still think that "Egypt is the largest recipient of US military aid" we have quite a ways to go yet...

So am I betting right or wrong that petroleum prices (and profits) will increase dramatically again? And how soon, roughly?

You're not because it's a lot easier to ignore the facts, it fits better with the made up perception we are supposed to abide by

Just not a very good one!
It only took you 5 years of telling us that oil was going to $100 bbl. Then once there, didn't you predict $200?
