Ok you say the price of gas is about supply and demand and that is why the cost is up, I'm going to say NO they have already showed the drop in usage, that the barrels we use is down quite a bit. Why is it one gas station can charge $3.12 and right down the street its $3.45, its all about the mighty dollar$$$$. The President can do things to make the gas price go down its called "Regulate" hold the gas giants accountable for their actions and quit screwing the little guy. You just watch when it gets time for election Obama is going to step in and make the prices drop and say "look what I've done for you, re-elect me" We need to use our own oil, and why Obama won't let us use our own is pretty stupid, the over-sea oil, if they want to blow it up let them then we won't have to pay top dollar for it, and what are they left with? Why does the US cringe every time theres a threat???????
Lovelessgenesis, I actually just made a discussion on Obama being Muslim along with a youtube video and all, you should watch it. Read the discussion too and tell me your thoughts please.
That's really funny you called him a liberal, considering he's a democrat.
Even if he claimed liberal, I'd like to know what issue that would be?
I feel like the choices you're going to make for a president are going to depend on your faiths and your personal opinions, not what would be best for the country.
I think every single candidate this year is shady and I don't think anyone can follow politicians without believing their lies.
I love the word "shady" that fits all the candidates perfect. Our United States of America is doomed, all the spending of the tax payers money, China almost owns us, so much for our freedom. Now lets vote for someone that doesn't make promise's, or want "change" how about just a good old buddy (haha) can't see where they could do any worse. Are we the citizens going to ask for re-payment for all of Obama's school loans, all the wasted trips his wife has made on her own plane with 40 helpers?? I'm sure your not going to school for free. The birth certificate is another issue, born way back when, and it says "African American" back then they never put that on birth certificate's, can anyone tell me what was put on the certificate? The election should have never involved color, white,black,red,yellow,brown, because now they all yell discremination if it doesn't go their way.
I agree everything with you what you said except for the part that China owns us. To theory whenever you borrow money like say when you mortage your house to every you get the deal done with they do own it. So tech yes in that sense China does own us. But I believe we take for granted what we actually know about reality. Global economy is where we are at and we been there for quite some time. I don't believe that being owned or partnered with China is a bad thing. One reason is we don't NEED to go to war with a country like China. And secondly our and the rest of the westerned countries are changing China slowly but it is changing. They are still communism (and no the idea of communism is not evil, it is the leadership that CAN be evil that is evil) but they are moving towards socialism. Which is good. Anybody heard about Chaos theory. Global economy is not about the action it is about the reactions of just that one action. In theory if a butterfly flies it wings in South America it can create a tornado in Texas. If you go to a stream of water. If you take out just one rock out of the stream. You can change the whole dynamic of the stream. Food supply, how the fish can swim, and where and how the water is being flow to and from. The global economy is set up just like the stream. That is why the situation in the country Greece was so importanted and tech still is. Because they are linked to the EU in which buys 30% of our production and if Greece would fail. They could drag EU then drag us and then drag countries like China and Japan along with us. And how many of you people know that China yes China is also in huge debt as well? Here's a food for thought look at the WHOLE pic instead of looking at the individual problems.
Alright thanks for the response. You only need one ? at the end of every sentence. They are business owners and they are not required to sell it for the same price. You can buy a book at walmart for five dollars. That SAME book will cost you 7 dollars in a smaller book store. Why is this? Because the smaller book store does not get to buy in bulk like walmart does. So they order and sell a smaller number of books. In order to make a profit, they have to make higher prices. The president does not control the gas prices. If a president could control gas prices, don't you think they would keep it 99 cents a gallon like when I was a kid...about ten years ago?
Secondly, we in the United States of America DO have oil. Your right about that. Unfortunately we have about 10% of the world's oil. We have a growing population. So every year there are more people, who use more oil. We have a fix supply of oil in this country. It's like a glass of water. You take a sip and there is less water in that glass. We WILL run out. When we run out is debatable. The experts disagree. But eventually the entire world will run out of oil.
What we NEED to do is to start working on alternative fuels. I"m not an expert on them but hydro power or something. Although the technology exists it is still very expensive.
You will pay 4 dollars for a gallon of milk but have a problem with four dollar gas? You will probably buy one bottle of water for a dollar. You have no problem with buying a bottle fo water or a candy bar for that price, but gas bothers you? Now, prices are different everywhere. Maybe where you live prices are cheaper or more expensive then where I live. Where I live gas has never gone above four dollars.
Lol my friend. You do realize that every single president and first lady have gone on vacations. You realize how many days the president before Obama was on vacation. I don't care if they go on vacation. It is a VERY stressful job and everyone deserves a break once in awhile.
Every president and first lady has a staff. The chefs at the White House are some of the best in the world. If you have been elected president of the United States, YOU HAVE EARNED SOME LUXURY. Really how many people would be president of the United States if they only got minimum wage?
I don't care if Obama is Black, White, or Asian. The fact is his mother was white and he had a black father. He is a hybrid, of mixed descent, or a zerbra. Call him whatever you want.
I also do NOT care if someone is Muslim, Christian, a non-believer, a Hindu, etc. Because MY God loves all his children EQUALLY. If the person has the intelligence and can handle the stress of the presidency, then they will get my vote. You may vote or not vote. That is your decision.
His birth certificate has been released TWICE. The short and the LONG version. He was born in HAWAII. Which last I checked was in the United States. His father was from Kenya. But because his mother was an American citizen and he was born in America, he is an AMERICAN. You can dislike his policies. You can dislike him as a person, but do get the facts straight.
About China owning us...yep. Your ABSOLUTELY right about that. You better start learning how to speak their language.
Shady politicans...it has ALWAYS been that way.
Wow ! I am proud of you for being big enough to admit the truth. You looked at it from your version and admitted what you saw. Even from a young age and that's a big thing. You did not bring the hate. I am not mad at your mother she's entitled to her opinions
