    Salt Lake this past weekend: Unleaded: $2.89 and Diesel: $3.87! WTF?? Why are we being ripped off???

    I guess it is better than Nome Alaska where it could reach over $9 a gallon if the Russian fuel barge doesn't make it.

    I have an idea...Vote out every incumbant politician, get us out of Afghanistan and Iraq, take that money and invest in new technology and education (stop pandering to the teacher's union and actually do something to change the system), shut down the border, make all welfare recipiants work for there money, tax Chinese imports, legalize gambling and weed and tax it to stop related crime, muder and corrtuption, stop telling me when I can have a fire in my fireplace becuase it is a spare the air day, stop trying to raise my taxes to pay for nonsensicle social programs, wars, and the prosectution of Barry Bonds for lying to congress about taking steriods, but please do prosecute the BCS for their monopolisitc no-playoff bowl system, and by all means, revamp this stupid 2-party system in the US where I have to chose between Obama and Mit Romney for President.

    Can't agree with all that but I think this qualifies for "rant of the day" :smt038

    "...stop... the prosectution of Barry Bonds for lying to congress about taking steriods, but please do prosecute the BCS for their monopolisitc no-playoff bowl system" Too funny. MM

    Yes that is correct. The lack of a 50 state campaign is caused by the campaign finance control freaks. Those control freaks are also responsible for the poor selection of candidates to choose from. Our campaign finance laws favor the rich candidates, media darling candidates, and behind the scenes power brokers.

    MM

    For those who do not know: Media darling candidates; Someone that gives the media a ratings boost and headline makers such as Trump, Palin, Paul.

    Behind the scenes power brokers; money bundlers that collect the max donation from many people and give it to the candidate, thereby gaining power and influence.

    This rather brilliantly cuts thru all the political doublespeak we get. It puts it into a much better perspective.

    Lesson # 1:
    * U.S. Tax revenue: $2,170,000,000,000
    * Fed budget: $3,820,000,000,000
    * New debt: $ 1,650,000,000,000
    * National debt: $14,271,000,000,000
    * Recent budget cuts: $ 38,500,000,000

    Let's now remove 8 zeros and pretend it's a household budget:
    * Annual family income: $21,700
    * Money the family spent: $38,200
    * New debt on the credit card loans: $16,500
    * Outstanding balance on credit card loans: $142,710
    * Total budget cuts: $385

    Got It ?????


    From my earlier post:

    OK now Lesson # 2: Here's another way to look at the Debt Ceiling:

    Let's say, You come home from work and find there has been a sewer backup in your neighborhood....and your home has sewage all the way up to your ceilings.

    What do you think you should do ......

    Raise the ceilings, or pump out the crap?
