Oil closed over $103 a barrel today

and the Euro is worth $1.54.

Some say the dollar value (which was equal to the Euro when the Euro was founded) is currently being caused by the lowering of interest rates.

We are doing that to prevent an economic catastrophe in the US.

We have been running a false economy (borrowed money) for several years now. Some say there is no such thing as a false economy as long as it works! Well, it is not working.

It is in such a mess that it looks as if Obama, or Hillary may have to do all those things they are pushing just to get the economy going again.

I suppose McCain can punt for four more years if he wins. He has no money problems!

You missed President Bush's solution. He said to buy just half a gallon, and then with the money you saved, buy the other half.

I did the math however and it will work!
Buy one-half gallon at $1.55. That saves you $1.55, which will buy another half-gallon!
I even tried it at the pump, an unbelievably it worked! I ended up with a full gallon, as promised, for $1.55 per half-gallon!

The "man" may have something finally!

Get use to it. Our transportation system is going to take on a more European flair.

Hillary: Elect Me to Lower Oil Prices

2006: We will win mid-term elections by lowering gas prices ... oops...up 40% since the dems took over!

Democrats Ask, Who Do You Trust to Lower Gas Prices?

(CNSNews.com) - Democrats say they have a "simple strategy" that will help them win the midterm elections. They plan to ask voters who they trust to lower prices at the pump.


So, how is that working out for you Sage??

Oh, no! You've committed one of the few "sins" that Dems constantly whine about: cut & paste. Laughing out loud

a.k.a. Puzzled -- Not much comes out of her mouth. It's all "copy and paste."

Mainly Extreme"
I glance at it [trouble concentrating Puzzled ] and move on. [as in MoveOn.org?]

your patented cut-and-paste

Still more cut and paste

Mainly Extreme:
I do not have the time.... I do not have the time.

Hey, "Jeff," maybe she should read Richard Hobbs' blogs and work at the "Carter Center for World Fascism Studies" (Richard Hobbs). Laughing out loud

$ageless a.k.a. Nitpicker$, $Dollar$, Bonker$, etc.:
deluge of great waves of cut and paste

Yardman Peter Lewin (Vice Chair of FayCo Dems):
"Which is more lethal, waterboarding, or Denise's deluge of cut and paste?"

I fully expected a deluge of cut-and-paste. Cut and paste is much easier on the brain than original thought.

d.b.a. Basmati who was banned: -- "Denise's pissy Shocked little 'gotcha' questioning. Lengthy cut-n-pastes with precious original thought may appeal to bottom-feeders like you."

Then, of course, there's the repetitive:

Virtually everything that comes out of Denise's mouth is a lie, half-truth or misrepresentation.
