I Hear you The power in charge now is big oil. They're pulling the strings of the puppets and as long as there's sabre rattling then they can justify the 150% run up in gas prices since they installed the chimp in charge. He's surrounded himself with hard liner cold war Hawks and they're as dumb about the world as they come. Perfect for oil companies and hi prices. War, they don't care just more money for them and their friends. Thye world is a much smaller and as long as your somewhere in the take of tax cuts or war machine you keep cheerleading and finding new ways to keep the train rolling. The fix? Mid term elections and a democrat control of either the House or Senate and Impeachment proceedings start. Otherwise its 2 more years of the same old bullshit and lies.
Actually, Americans are doing it to themselves by being so dependent on OIL. I always get a kick out of all the people driving around in those SUVs, pickup trucks, and other gas guzzling cars when they could as easily be driving a more economical car.
