This is a rant! Basically I am mad as hell, but don't have any choice but to take it more. So, I'm going to do as thousands (millions?) have done before me, and use my LJ to be bitchy, wanky, ranty, etcs.

However, before I start I just want to explain to the yahoos running for President exactly how to get my vote, because for once in my life I'm truly undecided. I'm not in love with either one of them, but they both have their good points - obviously JM isn't in the running, because I'm not sure I could get past the mountain of other issues I have with him, but it is possible, I'm just not sure I'd believe him even if he said he'd do it.
At the moment, there is only one thing that I truly deeply care about, so you want my vote? Promise me (and mean it!) that when you are elected that you will (to the best of your ability) f[bleep] the oil companies for as long and as hard as they've been f[bleep]ing America. It was bad enough when gas went to over two dollars - now it is over three, and there is no f[bleep]ing excuse for that, especially since the oil companies are making out of control profits!

How is it that no one in a position to do anything about this has a f[bleep]ing clue? Wait, oil man in the White House - never mind! Honestly, instead of sending out these rebates (which I'm not knocking by the way) to stimulate the economy what needs to be done to truly make a difference is to stop the greedy robber barrens of the 21st Century! And, yes, I am saying that big oil = robber barrens. Shoe fits!

Listen I have no issue what so ever with a company (any company) making a profit, but this has gotten totally out of hand, because high gas prices are forcing other prices to rise - it is a seemingly (at the moment) endless cycle. And that is what is destroying the economy, and if it isn't stopped America itself. So, congrats you greedy b@$t@rd$ - where the terrorists have failed you are stepping in and succeeding quite nicely, and also a bit more subtly.

I'm not claiming to be the first (or only) person to put all this together. There are tons of people who know this, but it seems the President and his people can't figure it out, nor does the media seem to be able to wrap their heads around such a radical concept. Honestly, this isn't even close to rocket science, hell, I failed algebra and I've figured it out, so it can't be that hard. So how is it that so many of the so-called smarter people in this country are so completely stumped about what is killing our economy? Has big oil bought them off? They could certainly afford to.

There's more... Oh, yeah, there's more!Collapse )

About the link - Sorry, I was looking for one that explain what a robber barren was, not who they are/were, but it was the best I could find on short notice.
