i'm told that this shindig is nonpartisan, but look around and see who is trying to co-opt the "movement" and turn it partisan (Ie .. "does the GOP have something to fear from the protests?").
that , in itself, tell me all I need to know about claims of this not being partisan or political.
Take a good look at the protesters. They are the American parasite class.
Let me ask you some thing does and i don't mean to sterotype anyone but I notice what could be a reading comprehension problem with some not all conservatives the reason I bring this up is the article I quoted said the price of oil to increase as much as 50% and then I added doesn't that suck? Lets say the article was wrong and speculation only added 20% to the price of gallon would that still suck? What is youre honest opinon?
Please don't be offended but I think maybe some of the protestors might be upset by some thing called speculation, Did you know that people of means can buy oil, never touch it,smell it,store it or do any thing more then hold on to it until they create an artifical shortage and then sell it at a huge profit? That profit causes the price of oil to increase as much as 50% doesn't that suck?
I don't claim that every rich person steals by speculating but it makes you wonder if they were some how not involved in stealing the heat from someone's grandma's house or the food from some poor kid's table. Any how you are not involved in that type of

Lets see you think that the Presidents energy policy is FUBAR, and you really think that drill baby drill is the answer? Do tyou think that more oil will curtail speculators? Do you think that we will ever run out of oil for the drill baby drillers to drill and when we do would you rather have some in the ground that we can drill for or would you rather be paying opec prices. Lets say that life essential need products "oil being one" speculation is regulated would that mean that we should sit by idily and wait for other alternative fuels to be developed? Look into the future the one that you and I may not be part of and think hard about what those who will be part of that future need to survive

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
