Who sets the oil price and all the economic uncertainty around those prices? OPEC does. Who is OPEC? It is a club made up of the of some of the largest oil producers and some of the largest tyrannies; Libya, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Indonesia, Algeria, Nigeria, Ecuador, Angola, and Gabon.
To say there is a market price for oil is, therefore, untrue. To say that all the world’s economies that need energy to produce “stuff” are beholding to OPEC is true.
Western democracies have used the tax code to incent people to have more babies, for farmers to grow certain crops and the like. They have also used duties to combat unfair trading practices.
Policy makers could end the manipulative OPEC crap if they had a will.
Too bad Hugo Chevez didn't live to see his nationalized oil industry take the big hit because oil 'tanked'.

The USAF should stuff 2 million pigeons up the behind with tiny versions of the constitution and bill of rights and see if that has an impact on their paranoia.

I have an Ikea. Give her a break. Not like any one of us can throw stones. Besides, most people are decent and hardly a stupid thing in their lives. Her shame and hangover in the morning will be consequential to the harm incurred.
Not like the store had to call a SWAT team.

Don’t do it gang. Like Glenn says, do your homework. If you want a low-down of one of most short-sighted, dumb, diabolical and biggest boondoggles we in Canada ever had. Look up what the eager beaver progressives wasted our taxpayers money on in this country.

Right on. Great to see you all standing. Here in Canada our tax freedom day is well into June now and government continues to get bigger and bigger. The progressives promised a national gun registry, based entirely on stupidity, for $2million and it cost over $1billion and then was scraped because it made no sense. There were a lot of connected pigs on the tit getting contracts for that one ( Keep in mind that the US economy is 10X bigger than ours, so it would be like a $10billion waste of money, for perspective) Of course the police union here promoted it but the members didn’t because they recognized it as an ineffective dumb ploy. Like Glenn says, do your own homework. I wish we had a second amendment.

Good heavens. Has the whole of MSNBC lost their minds?? These guys are so entrenched in an agenda and think they are so cool that their heads have frozen over. They so left that they make Canada’s state owned broadcaster (the CBC) look moderate.

I have always looked at snippets from all news sources on a particular issue to find the truth. CNN, ABC, NBC, MNSBC, undoubtedly have a liberal, pro-socialist, and especially now, a pro Obama bias. It’s so obvious how many of the correspondents faces light up and glow in admiration when discussing Obama and scowl when discussing the right.
Up here in Canada our state owned CBC (commonly referred to as the Communist Broadcasting Corporation) typically will have political panels that include 2 communists, one socialist, one Marxist and some so called moderate and claim balanced reporting on issues.
