Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

Sun Feb 10, 2013, 04:41 PM

I知 driving around L.A. all pissed off at myself this morning.

For not taking any kind of action for this current fucking gas increase. Is this going to be the new norm, driving up prices by claiming equipment failures, storage problems etc.then dropping the prices when they begin to hear complaints? Recently around here they went up over $1.00 then they went down( thought they would stabilized) , now their up again.


We all should feel like idiots, letting them get away with this, and the only way its gonna change is to threatened every elected dem. official with a primary fight if they are not out there every day, fighting for us!!......I知 starting a petition tomorrow... These oil companies have fucked enough with us...

1. If not for 3rd parties in 1980 and 2000, maybe we wouldn't use gas at all for cars

 

What a waste of all those years.

Jimmy Carter was correct all those years ago.

what was John Anderson thinking? His 7plus% could have helped Jimmy win.

But then the fracture in the party helped cause Jimmy to not be seated.

And Al gore, considered the greenest of all nominees, well Ralph Nader said he and Bush were the same.

It's a damn shame.

5. All utilities should be nationalized. Private enterprise has proven over and over again to be

incapable of running these operations for the good of the country. ... but with the incestuous relationship between government, corporations and lobbyists, and the gullibility to propaganda by many Americans, it's quite an upward hill battle.

9. Many of us can not afford hybrids . And most european companies have tremendous public transit

systems...With inexpensive rent a bikes spread out all over. In other words the high prices are dealt with much more effectively than here..

12. among other taxes....Perhaps if we forced those fucking off shore (Ca, Coast) oil companies for some

tax revenue then perhaps we can start improving ours.

19. I am for taxing oil co. on there world wide income

Last edited Sun Feb 10, 2013, 07:10 PM - Edit history (1)

as well as cutting all tax breaks for coal and oil. Of course this will only raise the cost of gas but then maybe we will get a better fuel source. Good luck may your next ride get you where you need to go for less.
