Never gouge an informant.

I wish submitters would slow down and proofread.

You look careless/dumb if you don't.

Get the trucking companies and taxi drivers to sale cocaine.. "multi-tasking transportation mobility options" is the new 'buz' word.

Isn't gasoline used in the refinement process too?

Instead of just being "end users"?

Once upon a time in a non-fascist society long long ago, if costs went up, it was not necessarily a given fact that the entire cost would be passed on to customers. This was because merchants actually tried to compete with each other; this was a kind of pressure to keep prices under a consensus-based common-sense type of control. This idea now only exists as a quaint memory due to the apathy and decadence of western societies. In the current world of unfettered, predatory capitalistic oppression, things have changed, and the customer, far from being "always right", is now treated like a pain in the ass and an interruption.

A little over a $100 for an eight ball? That's damn cheap.

It's cheaper to a coke addict than a gas huffer these days.

wow! a r3sours3ful dealer and young...I'm taking notes...

/hmmm I wonder how hard it would be to get his 7 digits?!
 
2008-09-18 10:55:30 AM
Oh I read that a little too quick. You're right. $215 for 2??

Something's not right there. It's probably cut up more than an emo kid staying home on prom night.

So I stick by my original post...lots of gouging going on!

Uh, what dreamland are you talking about where businesses ate additional expenditures?

Wait... 100 years in prison??? Does anyone else think that the punishment isn't fitting the crime?

But now your statement is better informed, and I agree.

Okay howzabout this: I'll take the moral and ethical high ground, and you can have the sociopolitical, okay? If you can't stand it, that's alright - I'm sure there's still a few chairs left for the McCain/Palin failfest next week.

It may not be a legal market, but the laws of economics still apply.

And I thank you for pointing out the error in my post.

You are right, we are all winners. See, us Farkers can get along.

for a while when the gas prices were really high it definately seemed that the weed delivery services in new york were giving you less for the same price (much like most food corporations).

/or so people i don't know tell me.

That's real funny and all but the real truth is NOT so funny. Everyone talks about the cost of fuel for planes and the price of gas for cars. I am a freight broker. Been doing it since 1984. 3 years ago we would pay 1900.00 to a truck to move loads from Atlanta to Los Angeles. We now pay 3400.00 for the exact same load. This is the stuff that goes on the shelves in YOUR local stores. We used to move loads out of the North East to Georgia for somewhere around 800.00 to 900.00 per load. We now pay 1400.00 to 1600.00. Somethings gotta give. This hasn't "trickled down" yet. When it does we might all be selling drugs to keep from going broke. Gas here in Georgia (NO I haven't seen Bigfoot) is averaging 4.30 per gallon. Diesel is much more than that. Now the US gas companies have raised prices because they had to shut down during IKE. That's crap!!! What are they doing with the "reserve?" If the gas companies can do it why can't the ma and pa companies that had to shut down do it? This country has gone completely nuts. It's hopeless as far as I'm concerned. SOMEBODY (not me) has got to pull us all together and do something about this crap they are feeding us from the Whitewash House. I wonder if there is any reserve at all? Wouldn't surprise me if they haven't given it away like they do all our much needed money.

Yeah because I only found the 50 dealers in the U.S. that were selling way above market value. That must be it.

I live in Porter Co.
This is not news.
If this happened next door in Lake Co. the cops would take the drugs, money, and give you a warning.
Warning to STFU and tell no one.
