17. "An attack by either Israel or Iran could send oil prices over the top."
Where is the top???

I think we're already there. I feel sorry for the people who use oil for heat. It's going to be a tough winter for a lot of folks.

I thought I had it rough with electric heat, but I'm beginning to change my tune. Last year was the first year my electric bills were lower than my neighbors oil bills. Our houses are almost identical in size.

This whole posturing mess belongs to *. He is the one to set the precedence of pre-emptive strikes. He is the one fanning the flames.
The little emporer must go.

And remember, in the minds of our leaders, an attack against Israel is an attack against the U.S.
