    Jeff I wish I lived in the country. My taxes are to high.But lower than yours. Gas $2.38 today.

    I have not read, But read all the history I can. I love older history the most because there are less politics.

    Good old Joe Bidden

    Championed failed and corrupt green energy “investments.” Biden was the Obama administration’s representative at a slew of failed “green jobs” projects, from Solyndra to Serious Energy. Biden defied critics, and the laws of thermodynamics, as he vowed that the Obama administration would not listen to opposition to its “green jobs” agenda–the day before Solyndra announced that it would suspend manufacturing operations.

  • Jeff

    @suiko, can you imagine sitting in a business meeting with a intelligent business men and women, and carry on about how the upcoming presidential election is going to change the daily operation, the market, and bottom line immediately. I’d fire the idiot, or expect to be fired if I talked like that in such a setting. It’s proof that either not much swings his way, or they were imaginary people. The housing market is in its way up, thank goodness! We didn’t sit around an blame Bush, or do sit around and give credit to Obama. We know where the fault and reasons lie. I’d be laughed out of the room if I talked in such a misinformed manner. Explains why his education level is at the O-Reilly factor. Lol!

  • Jeff

    @doug z. I paid $5.69 for mid-grade this am. UGH!

    A refinery was shut down due to a fire in Cali. But the prices are going down, so they say. Hopefully when I’m back in the USA on the 18th they will be around what you are paying. Doubt it though!

    7.8% IS NOTHING TO CELEBRATE ! This economy is horrible.

    Jeff

    I went to the grocery store, filled up the car with gas and payed the electric bill. I am single person and it took a bite out of me. The working poor person is being crushed by the costs. I know I talk with them all the time.

    Bankrupting the country is not the answer. That approach will not work, never has never will. High gas, food and electric costs make a bad situation worse. This is all linked to high energy prices.

    The green energies are hopeful but that one note approach is a disaster. I watched a Doc. on commercial and residential buildings using solar energy. Great, the cost is a little high now but will come down when the tech. improves.

    In the meantime people need an approach that will help them with their budgets now. Also the costs to companies small and big is staggering. Everything costs more because of high energy prices.

    I heard the Presidents Energy Sec. say he wanted high gas prices. That is fine for him. He can cash his taxpayer paycheck, fill up and have plenty left over to support his upper middle class life style. People in Smallville do not have that luxury.

    Energy Sec does not own a car. You can not make this up.

    @7.8% IS NOTHING TO CELEBRATE ! This economy is horrible.

    I know! That’s what the Republicans keep saying. But 7.8% is improvement and it will continue to go down despite the obstruction from the do-nothing GOP House, and the record setting GOP Filibustering Senate.

  • Doug Z

    Jeff

    Why

    The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) paid Chicago consultants over $200,000 in taxpayer money to put on diversity training workshops that included activities in which employees were instructed to chant “our forefathers were illegal immigrants.”

  • Suikostinger

    If the reason these big companies are getting tax breaks is so that they can and will hire more people, then why is it when I call customer support I always have to talk to some machine AND wait for almost an hour on the phone?

  • Doug Z

    Jeff

    Freeze Gov spending until we balance the budget.

    S—ks does it not.

    cheaper.

  • Jeff

    We pay higher prices in Metropolis S.Papa. Higher rent, higher utilities, higher groceries, usually at the same wages. Natural gas and oil production are at their highest rates and the oil companies are making record profits. Green energies are not to blame. Green energies in time will dominate fossil fuels. This is not NEW information. Blaming green energy for high costs is like me blaming the Koch brothers for rigging prices higher to attack Obama’s approval rating right before the election.

    You are taking the remarks out of context again, higher prices means less consumption. That can be a good prospective when talking conservation and reducing our dependance etc……..but not desirable during these hard times when our country is in slow recovery mode.

    It’s not great but it’s slowly improving. There recent jobs numbers also ruins 2 of the Republicans favorite talking points(The economy hasn’t been under 8% since Obama was in office and jobs are at a net lose under Obama)

    What I don’t get is when they talk to Republican house and senate members and they say well it’s all Obama’s fault that nothing is happening so he should not be re-elected. Going by the logic that the economy sucks and it’s all governments fault, shouldn’t we have a clean sweep of everybody(president, house and senate members)?

  • Doug Z

    Demos and Libs

    Quoting the good guy, Jack Welch:

    “In order to get 873,000 new jobs, you would have to have a GDP going at 4% to 5%. The 2nd quarter was downgraded from 1.7 to 1.3. The 3rd quarter is not going to be very strong. It just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than any surge since 1983 a month before the election.”

    This is worthy of a repeat:

    “It just defies the imagination to have a surge larger than any surge since 1983 a month before the election.”

    TALK about lying BIG! This administration IS and HAS and WILL!

    do you know who Jack Welch is?

  • Doug Z

    Mark-The best thing that can happen is they spend no money.

  • Jeff

    @doug z. DAMN THOSES GOVT. contracts!!!!

    An unmarried sergeant given Iraq pay and relief from U.S. taxes makes about $83 to $85 a day, given time in service. A married sergeant with children makes about double that, $170 a day.

    Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, the top U.S. commander in Baghdad overseeing more than 160,000 U.S. troops, makes roughly $180,000 a year, or about $493 a day. That comes out to less than half the fee charged by Blackwater for its senior manager of a 34-man security team.

    here ya go Doug Z,
    A 34 man security team contracted by Haliburton called Renency who contracted Blackwater security was paid over $11MILLION DOLLARS for one year of work.

    The GOP was silent when signing those checks. Were you?

    Jeff

    It is not a matter of blaming green energy. The production of oil and gas is up on private land and way down on public land. The President and his hard left wackos in the EPA have been trying to limit production for four years. That is why gas is stuck at 4 bucks a gallon. Every time the economy starts to grow high fuel prices stunts it. The President and his people are directly responsible for this because they are committed solely to green energy. 90 billion in subsides for what? So his buddies in the green energy business can go belly up and steal taxpayer money. Another government run disaster.

    No where to be found. Blame game again
