It’s The Ecomony

In my opinion one of the greatest issues we face in America at this time is fixing our broken economy. I know there are those who would disagree, but as a small business owner, trying to stay afloat, this is the worst I have seen in years… and they say it could get worse before it gets better. Folks are struggling across the country, making tough choices on whether to fill the tank or buy necessities. The tank sometimes comes first and leaves little for the necessities:

Today, crude oil prices “spiked above $102 a barrel for the first time.” Thankfully they “retreated after the government reported the nation is greased with more oil and gasoline than expected.” Loosen up with OIL, will you BushCo. You are making Americans suffer!

Reuters reported today that in January, “new orders for long-lasting U.S.-made manufactured goods fell by 5.3 percent.” A Commerce Department report showed it was the “biggest drop in five months” and the drop was “more than analysts expected.”

My clients and my vendors all tell me times are tough. Small business owners always take the first hits and many small business owners I know have long suffered under the Bush Administration. We need a president who really understands what’s a stake with our economy and has the experience to fix it.

We need Hillary Clinton.

  1. I’ll bet you dollars to donuts that Bush is still pumping into the Strategic Petroleum Reserve. Were we to let 50 million barrels or so out onto tje market it would take OPEC at least until summer to get enough member discipline to stop the price from falling. If we get their attention like that I have a feeling that they would be willing to enter into some discussions regarding the best way to promote the legitimate long term interests of both sides.

    Sen. Obama’s unwillingness to freeze home foreclosures mirrors the support he gets from financial community high-rollers like Felix Rohatyn.

    Obama–and especially his wife’s– speculator friends at the Chicago Board of Trade have made a boatload of money on this kind of ugly speculation.

    But of course, Sen. Obama is a saint–because the MSM still says he is–until they decide otherwise and destroy him–the better to elect one of their own–like Billionaire Mussolini Mike Bloomberg of NYC.

    And by the way, Barack’s pal, Dem party fixer, Felix Rohatyn, as ITT’s investment banker, was rather important in the September 11, 1973 coup that placed the Nazi Pinochet in power in Chile.

    Yes, September 11th was the day fascism was imposed on Chile–by financial community insiders who today want Democrats to vote for Obama–the better to elect one of their own–Mike Bloomberg.

    Think about it.

    Darrell, the price of oil has nothing to do with supply and demand any more.

    There are many, many layers of speculators who add to the $3 per barrel that OPEC gets at the well-head.

    These speculators are the problem–not OPEC or even the blow-hard Hugo Chavez.

    Dems who rail at the oil companies miss the boat.

    It is the ‘free-market’ middle-men in the financial markets who did this hyperinflation of the oil price.

    When Dems have the balls to re-regulate energy matters, and kick out the speculators, we will know that they are different from Enron’s shill–Schwarzenegger in California
