    How about the brilliant idea to double tax bonuses? Most folks don't realize that it wasn't just Bartholomew Tannehill III, that got a million dollar bonus for making 5 million dollars for his multi-national corporation that got hit with a double tax. It was also Joe Bob the stock boy at Winn Dixie that got a $200 Christmas bonus that got double taxed, too. That was pure genius! Unadulterated, economy driving genius, I say!!

    Why can't people face the fact that the Obama presidency and the Reid/Pelosi Congress is a ****ing joke?
    right...so you blame the price of gas on obama, so surely you blamed our gas prices on bush when they were much higher, right? and can you explain how joe bob was double taxed?

    It's called "sharing the wealth", right? That is an obscene thought when Obama says it about wealthy Americans sharing with other Americans, but it seems to be perfectly acceptable to share our nation's wealth with foreign countries.

    When it comes to alternatives to oil, there are limits. It is easy to make electricity using all kinds of methods, but our primary transportation fuel, oil, only has one alternative, and that is natural gas. Natural gas is harder/more dangerous to transport/store than liquid fuels. There are serious infrastructure issues related to gas.

    Currently there is only one thing we can do about oil and that is to use less of it, aka conservation....

    I thought G.H.W. Bush did because didn't G.W. over turn it when he got into office?
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Nothing will be done to change the current inertia in energy policy.

    I'll blame Bush for high gas prices, if you blame Obama for high gas prices. However, Bush never passed any drilling moratoriums. The Democrats did.


    and can you explain how joe bob was double taxed?
    Remember the extra tax on corporte bonuses? Yeah, they forgot to exclude Joe Bob's $200 Christmas bonus.

    There aren't any permits being issued. Sounds like a ban to me. Not to mention Obama inacted moratoriums in the eastern GOM and the East Coast. There's also a moratorium in ANWAR.

    so what?
    So...the price of oil is going up in the middle of a depression. That's what.

    We should be expanding, not only to keep gas prices down, but to create jobs.

    Do you have any additional information on this? The only additional bonus tax that I was aware is this

    Wall Street should go light on big-bonus plans - Investment News

    And let's not forget the failed attempt by Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., and Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., early this year to offer legislation that would have imposed a one-time 50% tax on bonuses of more than $400,000 for employees at financial firms that received funds under the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program.
