Don’t Worry – High Gas Prices Aren’t Obama’s Fault

At least, that’s the position taken by her Highness, Princess Pelosi. “Wall Street profiteering, not oil shortages, is the cause of the price spike,” she said Wednesday. “Unfortunately, Republicans have chosen to protect the interests of Wall Street speculators and oil companies instead of the interests of working Americans by obstructing the agencies with the responsibility of enforcing consumer protection laws.” Presumably, she means oil traders. But that would include everyone from major oil companies to average individual investors. Pelosi urged Congress to take “strong action” against excessive speculation. It’s important that she deflect the blame from oil supplies, since…

Political Gumption and Gasoline Prices

Chaos in the Middle East and the subsequent spike in prices at the pump spotlight the failure of America’s long-term energy policy. Reminiscent of the seventies, we are, once again, held captive by other’s instability. Just the potential tanker delays through the Suez Canal caused a price spike—and, that was before region-wide rebellion and production disruptions were reality. Muammar Gadhafi’s announcement that he would sabotage his own country’s oil infrastructure in effort to retain control caused a thirty-month high in oil’s rising prices. While much of Libya’s oil goes to Italy, any disruption in supply impacts prices worldwide. For example,…

Obamacare – A Tale Of Lies And Wealth Redistribution

May 12, 2010

Though he got in trouble for violating proper decorum, Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) got it right when he accused the Physician-in-Chief of lying during his speech to a joint session of Congress last fall when Obama was still mustering up support for his healthcare hijacking. Besides the strong arm tactics and bribery of Henchman Harry Reid, Obamacare was built on a mountain of lies. But the two most obvious un-truths were how much it would cost, and the reality that it was nothing more than another weapon in the arsenal of Obama’s socio-facist redistribution-of-wealth agenda. Both of these lies came to light this week. Yesterday, the…
