    If the board lets you get in the last word in addition to that referee shirt, could you find another twenty bucks?

    Do you know what you are arguing about?

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Not for nothing. Did the administration do anything to cause it? Dunno. Does someone within the Administration in a position to affect it want to? Yes.

    do you always have to be such a liar? Do you really have so little truth that supports your idiocy? Here's the rest of that blurb;

    "Somehow we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe," Mr. Chu, who directs the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory in California, said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal in September.

    But Mr. Obama has dismissed the idea of boosting the federal gasoline tax, a move energy experts say could be the single most effective step to promote alternative energies and temper demand. Mr. Obama said Sunday that a heightened gas tax would be a "mistake" because it would put "additional burdens on American families right now

    Where is my "lie"?

    Did I mention Obama at all?

    No, I did not.

    Does Chu, who is in the administration, and in a position to affect, want it? The quote says so.

    I'm not a "liar" just because you can't comprehend what I write.

    "try to keep up" ? With you that would mean lagging far behind of where I usually am. So what exactly is your point... if you have a point?

    The only thing obama accepts responsibility for is every bad thing that ever happened around the world, not personal responsibility mind you but Americas responsibility.

    Re: Obama doesn't accept responsibility for gas prices

    Obama will not accept resposibility for gas prices. He is not responsible for anything. Our Pesident has a sign on his desk that says "The Buck Stops Here", oh wait a sec, that was President Truman. President Obama's oval office desk sign says "Don't Blame Me, Its Bush's Fault"
    When America is strong the world is calm, When America is weak tyrants and terrorist slaughter the meek. ~ SgtRock
