But I like what Barak is doing here. Got to be proactive in this day and age of instant information access, where a rumor can get wings and cross the oceans in an instant. If somebody is going t lie on you, you best have the truthful information readily available.
So even though I can't support Barak because he is a Democrat, and I simply can't, no matter how much I might hope and wish and pray that maybe this time will be different, I just can't support this foolishness, I will do my part to help him get his truthful information out there in the face of the smears that have already begun.

Meanwhile, the Robber Barons of old are back and more gangster than ever before. On one of the back pages we find a small discussion of why something that cost $2 not too long ago, costs over $4 today. Does it cost more to make it? Not really. Are we out of it? Probably not any time soon. Did everyone working in the industry get a raise? Nope; just upper management and owners profits are sharing in the windfall.
Well, if you want to read one of the more inane and fruitless discussions that actually manages to come up with a close to plausible conclusion, follow the link.

Fisher: Absolutely nobody knows what is going to happen to oil prices. There are so many dependencies out there.
