Im a huge Titans fan (sadly) and what Haynesworth did was disgusting. He should not be playing again this season.

He still may be charged.

Tis true, watching that clip over and over again on espn made me decide this morning to unload all of my oil contracts. The nfl costs me money yet again!

Its a GOP plot to distract us from their pedophile shielding lack of ethics. If people are driving cheaply, they won't give a crap about wether the Bushies are buggering their kids.

Oh yeah and when is the election? I want to fill up my gas tank before the prices go back up.
 
2006-10-03 11:27:40 AM  
I can never decide what to comment on in these threads.

Let's see ...

Prosecute Haynesworth criminally.
Enjoy the cheaper ride. While it lasts.

Santa Barbara has more oil fields and oil platforms than just about anywhere.
 
2006-10-03 11:34:27 AM  
He should be arrested and prosecuted like any other person would be.
 
2006-10-03 11:34:38 AM  
There were at least two-dozen uniformed cops at the game; why didn't a couple of them didn't wrestle Haynesworth to the ground, cuff his hands behind his back and take him in on assault charges.

Because it was a football field it's not a crime ????
Guess Not !

"You are the first person I have heard try to make that connection, congrats. No one else has tried yet."

Oh it's a very popular Republican talking point right now. I think I've seen it repeated more than a few times on Fox so far, and repepeated on quite a few right-wing blogs as well.

Of course, those same people fail to recognize the... oh.... 60 month coverup they've tried to implement on the scandal, but, hey, whatcha gonna do?

(My personal bit about it is that the party trying to deny homosexuals the right to marry, calling them godless, etc etc, say they hushed it up because they didn't want to be seen as "gay-bashing". Seriously, Newt said that on Fox this weekend. The irony, it slays me.)

As cynical as that is, you are right in a way. People do vote with their pocket books. It is the number one way to see how people are going to vote. I remember during the whole Lewinsky/Clinton thing a friend of mine who had over a million in mutual funds said everyday, "As long as it doesn't hurt the market I don't care."

If the economy gets better by 2008, gas prices are low, wages increase, most people won't care too much about Iraq, the PATRIOT act, or other scandals. It's human nature to think things are pretty good when you've got a lot of money and feel secure about things.

Pombo proposes lifting offshore drilling moratorium
Zachary Coile, Chronicle Washington Bureau
Friday, October 7, 2005

Washington -- New legislation moving through Congress would end the quarter-century-old moratorium on drilling off the coast of California and other states, and shift the power to block development in coastal waters from Congress to governors and state legislatures.


Not really, and they haven't drilled there in a
l o n g
time.

There's around 3,000 drilling rigs in the Gulf of Mexico. How many you got in California?

I know the prices locally are affected by taxes, formulae, and transport.

So it this story about oil or albert getting suspended? And Kudos to the submitter for being so clever to come up with such a witty headline. That is so orginal! That is going to be popular for so long that everybody does it!!!Oh wait, this isn't 8 months ago....

goodbomb: elections coming up. i don't know how that can affect the price, but it does. anyone have ideas pro or con?

I'm going to weigh in at damn near none. The price of gas runs neck and neck with the price per barrel. And that's an awful big, global flywheel to respond to Bu$hs evil whims.
 
2006-10-03 12:01:30 PM  
Idiot should be suspended without pay for at least the rest of the season, if not forever.
 
2006-10-03 12:03:45 PM  
Oil prices have little to do with gas prices. People who get their farking panties in a bundle over high gas prices should consider how easy americans have it compared to, say,
the Ivory Coast (reuters, no pops)
 
2006-10-03 12:04:39 PM  
The price of gas runs neck and neck with the price per barrel and the total gas supply

which the oil companies can control, especially when they are given free oil from the strategic oil reserve

"i don't know how that can affect the price, but it does. anyone have ideas pro or con?"

I don't know that it necessarily affects votes directly, but it certainly affects talking points.

When prices were going up, Fox News, Right-Wing blogs, etc, were all talking about how fuel prices are always going to go up, it's cyclic, nothing we can do about them, and they certainly aren't the governmets fault. Now that they're going down, that tune has changed to how the Republicans are looking out for the average aAmerican, and bringing the prices down. The trend is of course, the opposite for left-wing counterparts.

I haven't heard ONE person on FOX, or otherwise, saying that the Republicans are "looking out for the average American," with regards to gasoline prices. Nor did they ever say that prices would continue their upward trend indefinately, as axiomatic. They said that prices are not controlled by politics, period. They say that to-day.

Continue to make up stories that make you feel good, if need be.

Either you watch extremely selectively, or you choose to ignore a lot of what is said then, bubba.

And my comments were about the fuel-price-related jingoism on both sides of the aisle, not just FoxNews. I know you party-member-types feel the need to defend your mouthpieces, but try not to make it sound like I'm simply lambasting Fox for being a Right-Wing tool here.

There's more than likely going to be plenty of chances for that later. ;)

Cue the non sequitur.

I'm not defending FOX. I said, "or otherwise." You mentioned FOX first, so I responded in parallel.

I'm quite disgusted my BOTH parties, and some of their mouthpieces. I happen to think that FOX does present a more balanced report, if you leave out the O'Reillys & Hannitys. But even Hannity has Colmes.

Both are idiots. But I agree with Hannity more often then Colmes.

Sorry if you perceive that I painted you with a broad brush. I did not read your post properly, obviously.
