If only they had approved that pipeline! Then gas prices would be 5 cents less in 10 years.

For a guy who should be holed up in Leavenworth to this day, he sure is unhappy.

"such that" ?? is subby home schooled?

I guess Congressman Eraserhead has no faith in capitalism and the free market.

It's valid grammar, just awkward for most casual speakers.

Exactly. How did this guy not end up in military prison?

LarryDan43: If only they had approved that pipeline! Then gas prices would be 5 cents less in 10 years.


Actually, prices would be higher based solely on increased demand.

That pipeline will allow petroleum, previously only available to buyers in North America, to be purchased by anyone in the International market, loaded onto tankers in Louisiana, and shipped out. Petroleum leaving the North American market will only serve to INCREASE the local prices.

/but oil companies and producers will get MORE $$$ for their oil
//why do you think they would spend millions building the pipeline?
/but keep being mad at the scary black man
 
2012-02-24 11:47:20 AM  
Yes, blame Obama instead of you owning a gas guzzler tank in a state that if your mom laid down in, her saggy fat tits would be considered its highest point.

Also, you lose troll points, which is unfortunate. You where in the top ten on my list recently. It was a perfect chance to bash public schools and you fumbled. Care to try again? I can give you half credit.

It's not like anyone put a gun to the Congressman's head and forced him to buy a car that gets 15 mpg.
 
2012-02-24 11:49:25 AM  
He's just pissed that Obama rode in on merit. West thought that the way to get prestige would be to compromise himself and be the black voice against black people. Didn't work. So, he's salty.

/Deal with it, Uncle Allen

FTA:People have asked me before is there any area where I could praise President Obama? Certainly, he has an impeccable penchant for understanding the power of the bully pulpit. President Obama is also very adept at promulgating deceptive language masquerading as policy, actually just insidious political gimmickry.


wow, could you cram more crap into one statement?

It must have been really scary for him when he bought that Hummer, having a gun pointed at his head and everything.

With the stop and go Florida traffic and it's probably even worse than 9.
 
2012-02-24 11:53:25 AM  
Really, as long as you can seriously say, "I'm not getting a smaller car, I don't want to look like a pussy," you can't say that gas prices are too high. You can still afford to pay more than you have to to go the same distance.
 
2012-02-24 11:53:30 AM  
WTF is wrong with these people?

In one corner of their mouth, they claim that fixing gas prices would be "socialism" and then they complain that Obama hasn't done anything to lower gas prices.

I'm pretty certain he doesn't know what "impeccable" means. He thinks he does. But he doesn't. If called out on it, he'd deliver a derpy, lame, not-impeccable explanation on why he really was right to use the word.

I am surprised that the stock market and economy are doing as good as they are. Back when prices were this high the economy started to falter, am not seeing any signs of this at this time.

Should be "incredible knack" for understanding, I would say.

This part of the article surprised me: Last year, fossil fuels were America's biggest export (new window) -- partly because of the economic recession and the shift toward vehicles that get 40 mpg instead of 16.

Heh. The some Federal Regulatory agency just announced this morning that it's speculation and banks causing most of this. Just like before. Everytime before. Demand is low, as it has been since 2008.

Maybe this toolbag should do something useful instead of following the Fox News line. Oh, and buy a smaller car. It will help.

Whenever I see a Hummer I always think of a photoshop content on Fark (at least I think thats where I saw it) and someone made an ad for the next Hummer, "Earthfarker9000". God that was funny.
