Exxon Effoff

  Republicans Full of Gas

     By now we all know that the United States consumes approx. 20% of the world’s oil while our domestic production capacity sits at 2%.  We could not drill enough oil here in America to supply our own addicted demand, much less influence world oil prices.  Yet Republican presidential hopefuls continue to blame President Obama for the spike in prices at the tank.  Newt Gingrich even goes so far as to say,  if he’s elected President, gas prices will be $2.50/gallon.  Remember when John McCain said he knew where Osama Bin Laden was?  All we had to do was elect him President and he would tell us.  Well we all know where Osama is now don’t we?

     Interesting interview yesterday.  Matt Lauer of the Today Show asked about the increase in gasoline prices.  Rex Tillerson, Chairman and CEO of Exxon (the world’s largest oil company) stated: “What drove these prices up is entirely the crude oil price.  Supply and demand is fine.  So what’s led to this most recent run-up?  Obviously concerns about the rhetoric over the closing of the Strait of Hormuz and the conflicts with Iran.”  What?  Did he just say that?  Yes, yes he did.  The 1%er confirmed that Wall  St. speculators are responsible for the drastic and sudden increases in gas prices.  Not President Obama.  So sorry Republicans, I guess it’s back to the drawing board!

p.s.  – Drill baby drill!

Next Step: Occupy Politics

The Occupy Wall Street movement, and all the other Occupy movements inspired by it, have had incredible  success in changing the political conversation both here in the United States and abroad.  Unfortunately, we Americans are a fickle bunch.  The movement may be losing it’s romance in the eyes of the general populous.  It is time for a change in tactics.  It is time to “Occupy Cyberspace”.

This is a call for all members and true believers in the  Occupy movement to come together in one location.  We need a definitive number  to represent the strength of the movement.  We need to form a unifying body to represent all of our voices, our desires to make the United States of America great again; to balance the playing field; to secure a promising future for our children and grandchildren:  the United Occupy Party!

Show your support!  Goto:  Change.org and sign the petition.  We can do this, one signature at time!   – United we stand, divided we crawl.

Newt’s Next

Newt Swims Upstream

      Newt Gingrich has apparently benefited from the failure of others.  He has moved up in  the Republican primary polls, second behind Mitt Romney.  But let’s not forget who this man is…

He’s the guy that was having an affair on his second wife with staffer Callista Bisek, at the same time he was trying to impeach Pres. Clinton for lying about his affair.  As Speaker of the House, he was second in line for the presidency when, under a barrage of ethics charges, he had to resign.

Is this the guy you want as the leader of the free world?

All Eyes on Ohio

      Critical count taking place in Ohio tonight.  The anti-union SB5 Government Union Law ” Issue 2″ is being decided.  With 9% of the votes counted, so far it looks like victory for the 99%. @ 63% – no / 37% – yes, things are looking good.

         This vote is being looked upon as critical as it will show the other Republican states’ governors that they have overreached with their radical right wing agenda and the 99% have awoke and are fighting back.
