I'm taking reader advice and seeing the eye doctor this morning, but I was wondering about something that I'll leave you with.
Why wouldn't oil shoot up to $130 a barrel when we've made it clear over the years that we won't do any thing to stop it, this unfailing sign of demand increase? No ANWR, no new refineries, demonize the the middle men (oil companies), go hat-in-hand to the Saudis and ask them to increase supply (to help drop the price) and they laugh (Bush).
The oil producing companies (Russia, Venezuela, ME countries) like nothing better than to see us squirm and our economy buckle. That's what envy is about.
Why put up with this when we can help ourselves?
