    I thought conservatives wanted the government to stay out of peoples lives. That includes how much they pay in gasoline as well as health care.

    Be careful what you wish for.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    we want a minimalist government. one, that, for example, doesn't perform a number of boneheaded actions that unecessarily drive up the cost of food and energy.

    Or better get used to more public transportation. Rather than using different cheaper fuels another alternative is to using what fuels we do have more efficiently. A ton of fuel gets wasted in things like traffic jams. More public transportation will what fuels we use to be used cheaper longer. That's what we should focus on right now.

    The Mayor has proclaimed that Jimmy Carter is no longer the third worst president the United States has ever had. He became the fourth worst president when it became apparent that Obama's goals are not those conducive to the continued prosperity of America.

    The year is 2011. Obama has been in office more than half the only term he's going get. When Obama inherited the economy, it managed to, without any help from him, to flatten out and grow slightly.

    That means the current dip is 100% his responsibilty. He turned a growing economy into a stagnant but inflating economy (gee, the United States hasn't seen it's buddy stagflation since Carter was kicked out), and chances are good that it's not going to stay stagflated, but go into another full blown recession...with inflation, thanks to the Fed monetizing the debt.

    It's when the welfare checks come in.

    And from the Mayor's youthful experience with K-Mart, what happens is that the shoplifters have money so they go to the store to steal, since they can pay for things if they get caught.

    Unless Wal-Mart has a Will Prosecute policy, that's happening there, too. Also, the shoplifters like to go when there's a crowd.

We might be able to fenagle our way through a few more years with prices remaining artificially low because of deals cut by the government, or by taking over oil rich countries, but it's not gonna last forever.
    Given that the United States has a couple trillion barrels of reserves, it could last a really long time.

    It makes perfect sense. Just stop pretending the Leftists have the good future of the United States as their goal, because they don't.

    The United States is the only nation not only not exploiting it's natural resources but actively trying to shut down all such operations.

    The leftists at the EPA refused a drilling permit to Shell Oil for the North Slope of Alaska because the ice breaker used in their plan would not cause the air in a Eskimoo village 100 km away to exceed the EPA air quality standards.

    That's right. The impact would be within EPA standards, so they were denied the permit for ALMOST exceeding them. Since Obama has not fired the head of the EPA over this, Obama should be impeached. This is one of those things that are more important that the latest forged birth certificate.
