**A little piece I wrote and recently found, nice to look back at what has been written from time to time. Comments ENCOURAGED****

I have been reading some very interesting comments lately blaming the Obama administration for raising gas prices in California for a wide variety of reasons. This is simply not true. First, from a strategic point of view, it would make no sense for Obama to raise the price of gas in the state that holds the most electoral votes one month before the election, think about it people....

Three specific events have contributed to the rise of gas prices in California.

1.) Chevron's Richmond refinery in California had a fire and was forced to shut down. This refinery provides 15% of the state’s gas and it is required by state law to create an environmental friendly gas, which costs more to begin with.

2.) A major north-south oil pipeline was knocked offline, curtailing crude oil to the state (not gasoline, but the crude oil required by refineries to manufacture gasoline).

3.) Again, getting oil out of the ground is not the problem, refining it is. Getting oil out of the ground is fairly cheap to begin with, turning that oil into gasoline costs money and when a refinery that has to tailor to an already expensive environmental friendly gasoline goes offline, supply and demand immediately takes over raising the price of gasoline, not crude oil.

Take for instance the average Bakken oil well. One well produces 500,000-1,000,000 barrels in its 30-35 year lifetime. The world consumes that much oil in 9-18 minutes!!!
OK then, what about the 18,000,000,000 barrels of oil that the United States government has locked up in reserve, why not let the public use that? Letting the public in on that oil reserve would drain it in a mere 7 months if it was only used by US citizens. 7 months!! Well then, a country with no oil reserve would sure be vulnerable to an attack. Think people!!

If anything, a conspiracy would be that the oil refineries are raising prices so they can get Sticky Mittens elected, who in turn will work with the Koch brothers to eliminate as much EPA regulation as possible. Hello acid rain, hello mutated babies..... Furthermore, Mittens track record at Bain Capital indicates that he has no problem exporting jobs, materials, and resources to the highest bidder. In turn, the high demand for oil, the rapid rate at which it is consumed, and the fact that China has a lot of money all indicate that Romney, the Koch brothers, and other vulture capitalists would not hesitate to sell out to the highest bidder making themselves and their buddies extremely rich, without any concern for the average man.

Oil, money, and greed do not drive decision making you say? Give me a break. George Bush and Dick Cheney granted exclusive rights during the Iraq war to Halliburton, a company of which he (Cheney) used to be CEO. In these situations, as mandated by Federal Law, the American government is supposed to grant these rights to the lowest bidder. There was in fact no bidding, when addressed in the United States Senate by then Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy about granting Halliburton exclusive rights, Dick Cheney's only reply was "go fuck yourself". Go Fuck Yourself, this was Cheney’s reply to a federal crime. The pure nature of I'll scratch your back if you scratch mine was evident when Halliburton paid Dick Cheney 34 million dollars to resign as CEO of the company and get his name on the VP ticket for the 2004 election. What happened here? Well in the most basic terms, the oil company gave him a $34 million signing bonus to become vice president of the United States. In turn, Cheney guaranteed Halliburton exclusive rights to an oil contract in the Middle East during the Iraq war. These people are crooks and people like you vote for them!! Why!?

Oh, but Obama had the chance to integrate the Keystone pipeline project here in America and he turned it down. What an idiot right? Wrong! The keystone pipeline would have created jobs for Americans, but this would have been temporary and minor in comparison to the big picture. What would have happened is, oil would have been shipped from Canada, across the middle of our country, to the Gulf of Mexico, at which point it would have boarded massive shipping barges in route to CHINA!!! CHINA!!! CHINA!!! The same group of people Sticky Mittens vows to get tough on, when in fact Obama has been tough on them the entire time! Furthermore, Bain Capital has outsourced jobs from this country to China. When this happens, workers will not be paid a living wage, be subject to sweatshops, and further increase the divide between the proletariat and the bourgeoisie; both directly in China and indirectly here in the United States. Owners of corporations that are allowed to outsource, make themselves rich, create unemployment in America, and ruin the lives of millions of people both nationally and internationally should be hung from the tallest oak tree.

So all of you hillbillies, waving your hillbilly flag, and singing your hillbilly anthem while bending over for Sticky Mittens and blaming Obama for the rise in gas prices in California really need to get your facts straight. Listen, just because you make somewhere between $50,000 and $200,000 per year does not make you rich. It does not put you even close to the same class as the people Romney is trying to fight for and trying to help out. You may be well off with the aforementioned salaries, but you are well off because you had people like Obama, the unions, and other labor groups fighting to ensure that there is some control between the elite wealth of the 1% and the rest of this country. Get rid of unions, get rid of democracy, and allow yourselves to be fooled by the hundreds of millions of dollars that the Koch brothers pump into the political giant to influence thought amongst the common man and you will ensure that one day we will only have two classes in this country. The extremely rich and the extremely poor. The extremely rich will live a good life, but the rest of us will be convinced that the world is flat, that dinosaurs and man frolicked together in a magical garden of Eden 6,000 years ago when the world was formed, and that if we do not obey those in power we will be unmercifully struck down by the right hand of THEIR god.

So Obama haters, hop in your pickup truck, rev up the engine, take a dip of Skoal, and begin the hillbilly anthem.........Git er done!! I'll see you on the other side of this election one way or the other, but hopefully you can actually think about the facts before going off about what is simply not true.

Get busy living or get busy dying.

An interesting read old friend, yet my view of Obama as the most deceptive, dangerous, criminal US president of history is rock solid. The US has been groomed for this ultra slick conman for years on years...

Still, you've introduced me to a couple of new characters in the theatre of cunt so cheers for the read.
