Gas conspiracy travels over seas


With gas prices dropping, liberals will claim there must be a conspiracy to influence the upcoming election. After looking at this website showing gas prices across the pond, I have come to the conclusion that Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Netherlands and the U.K. are all in on the conspiracy to make George W. Bush look good. Of course that is prepostrous.

The website shows weekly gas prices for these countries and it is not only the US that is significantly trending downward. The prices are in US dollars. Belgium dropped 30 cents in the last two weeks. France dropped 41 cents in the last 4 weeks. Germany down 30 cents in 3 weeks. The Netherlands went down 66 cents in 4 weeks. The list seems to be a week old, so I suspect the downward trend is continuing even more. As I said yesterday, the more we conserve, the more we ease the pressures on supplies. Carpool, walk and plan better to reduce trips.

    So if the kooks are right, gas prices should skyrocket immediately after the fall election?

    And how did George manage to get Europe in on this?

    He's good. He's very good.

    Chris,

    Bush isn't good at all. He's just so stupid, he stumbled into good luck with Europe. You have to remember your Lefty talking points if you want to get ahead in life...

    Yep, and that is why things are total S### in Iraq and the economy is headed for the cliff when the full force of the deflating housing bubble hits the U.S. economy in the next year.

    Mark my words those Gas prices will rise sharply after the elections and when the economy feels the brunt of the crashing housing market no amount of BS tax cutting will alleviate the pain that Joe Sixpack will feel.

    Then we'll see who the real kooks are as you parrotts keeps spouting the FOX NEWS/ROVE Line.

    Joe,

    The economy headed for the cliff? Try 17 quarters of economic growth (despite several occurences that could have set us back) and unemployment at 4.7%. Almost the entire nation is working (of those who wish to) and you're still spouting the media's talking points that seek to convince us we should be worried. And I think the projected housing bubble is going to end up like the projected Clinton "surplus."

    We'll see pally. That booming economy that you, Wall Street, Bushco, and the Corporations keep squawking about has seemed to have passed a lot of working Americans by...don't think so? Just ask any of the Ford or GM worker out your way or maybe even the thousands that have had their houses foreclosed on. This will continue as Bernanke learns on the job and those ARMs keep resetting and the invariable wave of the slowdown in the real-estate hits all sectors of the economy. Also, factor in the cost of energy as it goes up after the elections and there will be a lot of people hurting.

    Thankfully though, at least they know they can come here or watch FOX NEWS to have someone tell them that all is well and getting better...kinda like Bushco with Iraq as it goes down the tubes.

    Wait and see... I say anyone that votes GOP and Bush after their dismal record economically deserves what they get!

    Joe,

    Your claim that there is a bad economy now and the "wait and see" line contradict each other. If it is bad now, we don't have to wait and see.

    I suspect by the way you talk, you would be disappointed if things remained well. As for the economy coming down, all economies do eventually. Keep saying it and someday you will be right.

    As for Ford and GM, you cannot blame on Bush. True these people are suffering economically. The causes both precede and supercede Bush.

    I know a lot of people out your way that are hurting and your realestate in Il is getting real soft. Go out and ask your neighbors how many of them feel that they are doing better now than 6 six years ago when your boy unleashed his brand of Compassionate Conservatism on them and Middle America??? Some how I don't think you'll have a lot of people that think your buddies Brand of VOODOO ECONOMICS is as great as you do.

    Hey, I don't wish anybody ILL WILL...except maybe Bush and the GOP,but you better hope that they never find a way to Off Shore your cush state gig cause then you'd really know what the average stiff in the private sector that is not connected has to go through just to make it in a Bush world.

    Joe,

    What makes you think I word for the state? I'm in the private sector, not the gov.

    Joe,

    The fact that the housing market is soft right now doesn't mean that everything is tanking. My house is on the market and has been for about four months with very little activity. But I'm not about to blame Bush or any President just because I'm having some trouble selling my house. You asked if my neighbors are doing better than they were six years ago. The answer is YES. While I have not spoken to everyone of them, most of them are in the same position I am in - that is, I am better off financially, I live in a better house, I drive better cars, I have more money to spend on liesure or to invest, and all that AFTER we've added three children to the family. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am far better off than I was six years ago, and so are my neighbors. But don't worry. I won't go giving Bush or the GOP credit for any of that.
