Gas prices are finally down to a reasonable level and hopefully people will be able to heat their homes this winter and can afford to drive to work.
Now the Saudis are screaming that a barrel of crude is going for $54.00 and they say it should be $75.00 a barrel; they could accept that. If they could accept $75.00 a barrel, why didn't they accept that price months ago when crude was $147.00 a barrel? "Those greedy bastards" (as Achmed the Dead Terrorist would say).
I am all for a free market and letting the market set the price, but when Wall Street mindless midgets and Saudi dust heads screw with the fair price of a barrel of crude, they should either go to jail or be blown to glass. If the Saudis are losing money (which I doubt) and losing tankers filled with millions of gallons of crude to third world pirates, then they get what they deserve and right now it is $54.00 a barrel !!!!
For all their money, wealth and riches the Saudis are lazy, self-centered, arrogant idiots. I could care less that they have the word "King" or "Prince" in their name. They want it all and the free market is saying "NO". So put that in your robe and sit on it.

The innate contradictions of these people’s actions always seems to escape them. In Sanders’ case, were Mukasey truly a tyrant, then Sanders would have been hauled off by the secret police and tossed into a prison somewhere, alongside people like Keith Olbmermann, George Soros, and Barack Obama, just to name a few. But it was the sheer impossibility of that happening that encouraged Sanders to stand up at this gathering and make a complete and utter ass of himself without fear of government retaliation.Whenever anyone around me does a bone-headed something, I usually smile and am thankful for them. Because they are idiots, the rest of us look that much smarter, you see.
Read it all here.
From NRO and Ritholtz.com:
Jim Bianco of Bianco Research crunched the inflation adjusted numbers. The bailout has cost more than all of these big budget government expenditures – combined:
• Marshall Plan: Cost: $12.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $115.3 billion
• Louisiana Purchase: Cost: $15 million, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $217 billion
• Race to the Moon: Cost: $36.4 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $237 billion
• S&L Crisis: Cost: $153 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $256 billion
• Korean War: Cost: $54 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $454 billion
• The New Deal: Cost: $32 billion (Est), Inflation Adjusted Cost: $500 billion (Est)
• Invasion of Iraq: Cost: $551b, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $597 billion
• Vietnam War: Cost: $111 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $698 billion
• NASA: Cost: $416.7 billion, Inflation Adjusted Cost: $851.2 billion
TOTAL: $3.92 trillion
And, according to NRO, even WWII cost less than the bailout.
Let's see...can you guess which one is the taxpayer?

But Obama wants to close GITMO and move these FREAKING TERRORISTS to the US and give them the same rights you and I have, as in those from the Constitution. Now every one of us that has traveled to, say, Europe or Russia has been told that we have to abide by THEIR laws, and we don't have "Constitutional Rights" in Transylvania.
So why would we give these vermin those rights that our soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines have fought and died for?
THAT'S THE BILLION-DOLLAR QUESTION.
My solution: turn em loose in a raft in the Gulf while the US Navy is conducting live-fire target practice. Even better: I suggest that Obama go to GITMO before closing it and meet with these terrorists (without preconditions) before letting them go. Maybe they'll toss some bodily fluids on him.
This article from The Weekly Standard is a must-read. Here's the money quote:
The greatest success of the Bush administration is that it stopped all of this, and more, from happening. The continental United States was under attack from an enemy unlike any other this nation has ever faced. There was no easy legal precedent or historical analogy. In the wake of 9/11, the Bush administration had to make up new rules as it went along. Critics are free to charge that the administration went too far. But the Obama administration may rapidly discover that treating the terrorist threat like any other matter in federal court, as candidate Obama proposed, is not only unrealistic but also dangerous.Read it all here.

Is this guy really as stupid as he seems?
And he has no handlers that are smart enough to stop this crap?
This is as stupid as the carmaker CEO's who flew in on private jets.
What a freaking zero.

It is a little after 8:30 pm on election night and based on what we can see, Obama has won this election.
It bothers me that McCain/Palin lost but I am more pissed off that the American people voted for a man who has no integrity, moral direction, or conscience, and has no ability to tell the truth. I am pissed off at the people who were interviewed after voting and when asked if raced played any part into who they voted for, said "YES that is why I voted for Obama." I am pissed off because they are black and can say that on national TV and no one calls them on this as being racist. We all know if a white person had said that we would be called a racist.
I pissed off that two black men who are part of the Black Panther party can stand in front of a polling place and tell the people inside not to come out and imitate those trying to get in by swinging a night stick. And when the police are called nothing is done about it.
I am pissed off that a middle aged black women can say on national TV when Barrack is elected she won't have to worry about making her house payment and buying gas for her car, Barack will take care of her and now she doesn't have to worry anymore.
I am pissed off that many people who voted for the first time today could not even tell you what the Bill of Rights is about, forget about the chain of command. If something happens to the president, they have no clue as to the issues and how it will affect them.
I am pissed off that Obama played the race card more than once during his campaigning. He brought up slavery while speaking on the steps of the Detroit Public Library, he joked that he looks nothing like anyone on dollar bills, he took every opportunity to bring up race. I believe he has done more to drive a wedge between blacks and whites and has done more to undo what Martin Luther King brought together.
I could discuss numerous other reasons why I am pissed off but facts are facts, we survived Jimmy Carter but I am not sure we cannot survive what is coming.
I am going to get a good stiff drink, take a sleeping pill and hope that when I wake up in the morning I will discover I was in Emerald City with Dorothy, Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion………"there's no place like home"……there's no place like………ugh.
But Pinch says it best, and it's SFW:
...as soon as the people get a taste of what a “redistributive government” led by a political neophyte and an absolutely bat-crap-crazy congress (emphasis mine) is like, in 2 years the House will turn again and the Senate will return to a more even split.Amen, brother. Catch the whole thing over at instapinch.
Having said that, I can’t believe how incredibly gullible and stupid some of the electorate are.
I have seen some dumb asses in my time, but this guy takes the freaking cake.
Did I need to mention that this fuck is from New Jersey? Come on, Jersey, vote this moron out...I know a lot of folks from Jersey, and they are a lot smarter than this dickweed.

She voted absentee in October.
We hear that her vote will be counted.
Now dead people can vote?
Here's what The Boss has to say about this.
Would someone please help me understand how this works:
How does a dead person's vote count?
Obama's grandmother passed away yesterday and even though she is not alive on Election Day, because she voted Absentee in October her vote counts. How can this be? How can a dead person legally vote?
If dead people can vote, then I need to visit the graves of my grandparents and father and see how they want to fill out their Absentee ballot, because like Obama's grandmother, they are absent!!!!
If dead people can vote then we need to set up polling booths in all cemeteries because you never know who might show up. We will also need to staff these booths with Federal poll watchers just to make sure everything goes according to election rules.
If dead people can vote, how do we verify their addresses? Obama's grandmother will not be living at the same address that is on her voter registration card on election day.
So tell me, how can dead people vote?

That is some kind of __________________ (you fill in the blank).
As most of you know we are huge football fans; we count the days to the next game after the Pro-Bowl Game is over. We spend all day Saturday working like crazy, cooking food to get ready for Sunday, football all day.
In my humble opinion, this year most of the teams suck. They include Detroit (nothing ever changes), Indianapolis, Green Bay and last but not least Dallas. I will give Indy a pass since Payton had knee surgery this past summer and is very cautious with dropping back and stepping forward. Detroit, huh, I am not sure if they ever had a winning team or ever will. Their coaches suck, there is no team coordination while on the field, I could go on but why? Green Bay, some days they're better than others, but they just are not playing like they did when Brett was there.
Now to Dallas: they deserved to lose today. They suck. Penalty after penalty, missed catch after missed catch. But the worst thing I saw this afternoon was number 31, Mike Jenkins, a rookie. The play took place in the 4th quarter against the Giants. They were down on the Cowboys 15 yard line and the Giants ran it in for another touchdown. Mike Jenkins had a golden opportunity to tackle the running back and chose to hold up and let him go on to score. Excuse me, but this rookie should be fired immediately. If I owned the team he would not be riding back on the team plane. I would give him bus money and tell him when you get back to Dallas clean your locker out. Some of you would probably say "ah he's just a rookie give him a break." Being a rookie is no excuse for not tackling the running back, he knows better. Here is another player who probably has an ego larger than life and thinks he made it to the big time, especially playing for the Dallas Cowboys. I don't care that Dallas was going to lose anyway, as a player your job is to never stop playing.
He should be fired and made an example of to the rest of the team. Jerry should tell all the players, "You either play this game with everything you have – all out - or you will be gone also". This is known as attitude adjustment and Mike Jenkins needs one. He needs hope and change just like Barack.
