They're out there waiting to victimize every American. So far the republicans haven't raised a hand or even a voice to stop those who would do harm to 98% of America's population. In fact the republicans have rewarded the very ring leaders who plot against us. The plotters want to take away your freedom. They want to see to it, that every American will feel the pain the inflict. They are the fanatical, greedy, Petrol-Fascists...and they want to hurt every American.

ExxonMobil, RoyalDutch/Shell, BP, ConocoPhillips, ChevronTexaco, Atlantic Richfield, Gulf Oil Corporation...the list is long.

These evil plotters have joined OPEC and they will keep mugging us at the gas pumps until we elect some democrats and take back the US House and Senate from those who aid the plotters!

1. I want to believe Democrats would resist them
But they didn't exactly suffer under Clinton, to quote Michael Moore. They'll probably be more populist than the Republicans but not bring about enormous change.

3. I have to say many of those things changed without any politicking
With regards to oil prices and whatnot it was mostly bipartisan actions that assisted the global economic situation that brought us here.

5. Statement By Al Gore Regarding Gas Prices
snip...

I am extremely concerned about the conduct of the oil companies that may have led to these unreasonable price increases.

Three weeks ago I called upon the government to investigate the oil companies for price gouging. That investigation of big oil is now underway, and I would like to see the investigation broadened to look at allegations of price fixing and collusion among the oil companies.

Democrats Jump White House on Gas Price Gouging

Senate Democrats are now hammering on George W. Bush to drop his lifelong loyalty to Big Oil by supporting a Senate bill that would work to eliminate gasoline price-gouging. With the family vacation season almost upon us, Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) and 15 Democratic Senators sent a letter to Bush this week asking for his support of S. 1735, a bill that would provide some degree of protection to consumers during any future oil crunches.

"You are undoubtedly aware of projections from the federal Energy Information Administration (EIA) that gas prices will rise 25 cents per gallon across this nation compared to last summer," said Senate Democrats in the letter. "In light of these projections, we believe a federal anti-price gouging law should be enacted before the summer driving season begins in earnest, this Memorial Day."

Memorial Day weekend is seen by many Americans -- already struggling with $3.00-per-gallon gas prices -- as the traditional beginning of the summer driving season.

The Democratic Senators also renewed their call for a bipartisan energy summit to solve the dangerous problem of Americas dependence on foreign oil.

"A strong federal price gouging law is only one element of the equation when it comes to putting our nation on the path toward greater energy independence," continued the Democratic letter. "A comprehensive and smart approach to this vital issue of national security will help curb the tremendous volatility in energy prices that is impacting consumers, businesses and the American economy as a whole. We have thus far been disappointed by your Administrations lack of response to our invitation to co-host an emergency bipartisan national energy summit. This offer still stands. However, in the absence of leadership or cooperation from your Administration, we will soon be moving ahead with our own set of real solutions, which will spur the kind of innovation and investment America needs to secure its energy future for the 21st Century."

6. I thought I'd trolled out a troll....
Edited on Thu Aug-10-06 06:23 PM by Hubert Flottz
I can smell the bastids!

Edit...my intent was to let this thing sink because all I wanted to do was take a swipe at the oil mob and Cheney/Bush. Once I trolled out the troll I had to respond...

7. There really are trolls...
It's not a conspiracy theory.

The oil companies are conspiring to gouge you into poverty too and the GOP does nothing to stop it. It's economic terrorism.
