11. Yep!
Oil us up again, which makes the dollar drop, which makes the markets drop. Same thing every week, and even though experts have told congress that we need to regulate the speculators, and do away with the "Enoron" loophole, which would bring oil pricers down up to 50% in 30 to 60 days, and told them they should have done this last year or earlier, nothing is being done! Republicans have started a new tactic of blaming high oil prices on the democrats for not allowing more drilling, and the democrats are playing right into their hand by not addressing the "real" issues on high prices.

Last month even republicans were laying the blame on speculators, now they, and many others in this country, are mad at the democrats for not allowing more drilling. Will the leaders of the party every get the backbone to take on the republicans and just do what is right for the people instead of playing politics, and being cowards when it comes to the "real" issues, and the real problems?
