OK...LOL... I will try...but I cant promise much on lessening typos..: )
I'm kinda scared now when visiting this part of the forum. Guys, please stop.
I'm not talking about this thread only, but since the elections, nearly half of what's posted around these parts is ridiculous ignorance mixed with a retarded view of world economics and politics with a hint of hidden racism.
The fuck is this shit, Alabama?
Look at this shit and tell me with a straight face, that american politics are to be taken serious.
THIS IS FUCKING NEWS? http://www.mediaite.com/online/santorum-rips-limbaugh-slut-comments-hes-being-absurd/
Even the fact that a presidential candidate has to speak about this is retarded.
But the current president should pay from the US budget for lowering the Gas prices.
tepes relax, it's just the wild dtfer that's making us all look stupider than we really are.
Gas prices and gas-driven cars should be taxed the hell out of. The money should be earmarked to subsidizing high-speed railways, other "green" modes of transportation, "green" energy production, and, particularly in the US, re-urbanization of cities/suburbs. Maybe it's not realistic to hope for something like that, but I'm pretty sure that in a couple of centuries, people will ask "Why the hell did they not do that?".
Get the fuck out eurofag. I wants ma' gas prices low because i don't give a fuck and this is the REAL america. The bus is for the poor and dem niggers.
Also, the Subway is for the Liberal Elite...Newt Gingrich said so. They read on those in NY. Fucking Liberal Comunists.
And liberals were blaming Dubya for high gas prices. And the band played on.
Any person on either side of the political spectrum who blames the president for gas prices is basically an idiot. EVERYONE knows the president has no meaningful control over it.
BUT KEYSTONE XLLLL1LL1L1L1LOL1L11!!!!!!11!111
Nobel prize-winning economist confirms what I've been saying already
Why does Paul Krugman hate the free market?
Nice Rick Santorum impersonation.
I wont post as why bother when just getting railed on, but I do read the site , so please enjoy the thread
It's hard to go up against the truth.
Its hard to go up against the internet..lol..I kinda give up..but many here are cool and I enjoy reading.
You my friend I enjoy reading very much! you have a great fun way about you.
Thanks, wanna make out?
did you shower and brush your teeth?
No, I'm a slovenly 99 percenter liberal, we don't do that kind of thing.
and that link was an absolute joke.. comical almost..Michelle Obama must have written it. is the whole internet infested with Liberal jibberish..?
Also, it's obvious you didn't actually read the article. Black people are illiterate and thus cannot write articles.
Dumb niggers, especially women, can't write, why don't you understand this
oh shit dislol already dealt with that point.
I am trying to think this whole situation through, granted I am far from an expert but I think I have the fundamentals down pretty decently. I agree that U.S. oil production would not have any direct effect on the price of oil for reasons of OPEC mitigation. But I don't think domestic oil production is out of the question as a means to effect our own price of gasoline if sensible regulations are put into place. the way I see it, the problem with opening up oil production from offshore drilling/alaska (environmental/emergency reserve issues aside) is that since the U.S. operates on a free market, the oil producers are part of the global oil supply. This means the price will still be regulated by OPEC/global demand, not just by U.S. supply/demand.
So let's go to the doomsday scenario the GOP would love to see happen. War with Iran, straight of hormuz held hostage with nukes (el oh el), oil transport becomes very risky and prices sky rocket. Therefore gas prices raise towards $6/gallon or higher. In my opinion (maybe very ignorant opinion) some meaningful regulation and domestic oil production policies would allow the U.S. to completely control the price of its own gas. We have already reduced the supply of our oil coming from the mideast drastically and with our "backup" reserves and potential from offshore drilling / non mid-east partners we could be self sufficient for up to the next 50 years (or so I've heard estimated). The problem comes more from the fact that being part of a global community removes our power to control prices as an overal minority producer. Therefore implementation of strict export taxes on oil would "close" the market to the US and allow us to be in control of our own supply/demand. As much as people hate "government overregulation" I think they'd allow this to get by if it means avoiding paying up to $100 to fill their gas tanks. I don't think Obama in his current situation has any real power to control gas prices, but given a circumstance where its needed it could completely be done. Or I could be completely off base and have no idea what mi talking about, you tell me.
are you infering that Bill Ayers wrote all of "Dreams of my Father" aka, I really am a closet Muslim" LOL..
straight of hormuz
No, the white half of Obama wrote it.
nice read and thank you for taking part.. dont fret Obama says the future is "algea" and that we can use wind power to fuel our cars. and the way to bring down the price is to just play into Saudi Arabias hands and what would work best is to bring the economy to halt so we dont need as much oil and just stop drilling all together.. I think we should just stop drilling today as we cant effect pricing anyway lol . see today Bush is gone, and he was just an oil guy, Obama hes the way.. hes so thin he can just hold a paper bag and a gust of wind can carry him from spot to spot..
Do you read the news? (From sources that are not Fox)
This is why we all hate you. Or is it why we love you? Now I am just confused, could I be gay?
on another note I love when Liberals says "what I am saying is an Unmitigated Fact" that sort of stuff is the real belly laughs.
The President may not be able to bring the price of gas down ( cough ..he can ), but he sure can drive it up.. as we see with hsi insane stupidity of taxing, the spector of more taxing and the mantra of "the oil cos are evil".. but Obama and dumb libs need a bogey man always, always need that straw man to fear
Oh no..my c- is in jeapardy..Im going to make more typos now!!!
You are very new to these forums. Typo police have more power than mods.
Are you bashing your face off the keyboard? Both the content and form of your posts tend to suggest that you are.
Are you a real person.
Wait nevermind aren't you a girl? I'M NOT GAY!!!!!
How? This is what I really want to know. Myself and several others have already explained why this isn't possible at anything more than an insignificant level.
If you see my explanation I think it is possible, just not under the current circumstances or through any manner in which a "small-gov't" GOP would ever support.
I like you! Have a great day
This isn't the way it works, though. If it were possible to deliver gas more cheaply via domestic production than by importing, we would already be doing it. If US producers were able to undercut OPEC prices and export at a competitive price, we would already be doing so. We simply can't however, because we cannot compete on the supply side, no matter how much we ramp up our efforts.
Even if they could, though, driving up the price of foreign gas relative to domestic only gives domestic producers incentives to raise their own prices--say in this hypothetical scenario domestic producers can produce at cost x to domestic consumers and because of legal restrictions the lowest imported oil can cost is y > x. Now since domestic producers no longer face competition at the price range between x and y, they can mark up their prices x+ε> y to capture this imaginary value that the government has imposed, at a cost to domestic consumers.
This is the general reasoning why I am opposed to any efforts to "reduce our dependency on foreign oil"--cheap foreign oil is good for our economy.
Oil is old news. We should stop using it just because it's embarrassing. We're supposed to be a technological leader, but instead we're a laughing stock because we still use an ancient power source invented in the 1800s.
No you misunderstand, I didn't mean that as a friendly notice. I meant gtfo.
No... I am not real.. Im more human then human...but less human than non human..
I agree,,, we need to use more synleproraium to fuel our blenders...that is the way...and Im telling you the unmitigated facts that Malania Obama told me when I hung out with Bo the water dog
