    Since it is fashionable in some circles to blame Obama every time prices go up, shouldn't we be hearing some praise and thanks now?

    Didn't the right tell us gas would be well over five dollies a gallon by now?

    Yes, Phrane, I believe they did. But believing much of anything that comes from that side of the fence is simply not worth the effort.

    Why should we be thanking anybody for $3.50 a gallon gas? $3.50 is not cheap. Back in the days of hurricane Katrina gas went from $1.90 to $2.65 overnight and everybody had a heart attack about it. But now so many of you think $3.50 is fine. The problem is our government and the oil companies have conditioned us to believe that $3.50 is a good price. It's not!

    Well, Brave Sir, whatcha gonna do about it? I remember well when it was 25 cents a gallon. Of course I was earning $55 for a six night weekly shift. My first teaching job back in 1961 paid $3000 a year. Bread was 15 cents a loaf and college tuition was something like $120 per quarter.

    And now the GOP is trying to condition everyone to think that raising the minimum wage would be a bad thing and that Social Security is evil.

    We subsidize oil companies. Can you imagine gas prices without subsidy? But hey, we gotta keep those investment hedge futures oil brokers and their Congressional flunkies rolling in dough, don't we?
