"I was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better than anybody had run it in a long time."
Unfortunately it's true, tabloid media notwithstanding. Most objectives were met, many surpassed... It is simple fact that the empire stands more powerful than ever and is getting stronger as all human interaction is funneled through *Our Great Computer*. You are magnetic ink
With Russia's (well, everybody's) petro dollar conveniently in the tank, now is the time for a nice little build up, wouldn't you say?
"This is a message that we see what they're capable of, and what their political leadership is willing to do", said the mysterious administration official...
Probably not much in either case.
To combat it, when the Iranian president comes to visit your town, take your clothes off... Is all of Europe being run by Neville Chamberlain now?
"because energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, those things that God has dumped on this part of the Earth for mankind's use instead of us relying on unfriendly foreign nations,"
The same is true for regular and diesel too.. And where's the Premium?
It's a real possibly, with Iran adding to the glut. The big difference between this and '86 is that now the renewables are cost competitive... Well, maybe not at 20 bucks a barrel, but we shouldn't see 100 ever again. Too bad for all those governments budgeting on that...
Hee hee hee... Thanks Obama!
Does this mark the beginning of the day trading season? I never thought that watching Yahoo live could be so exciting...
Oil at 29.49... Maybe the airlines can put another peanut into the bag.
While the middle-of-the-roaders are pushing hard for a Clinton v. Rubio match up, the first of the potential republican V.P. candidates steps up to the podium. Rubio/Haley is not such a big stretch. It would definitely be a PR bonanza and give us a pretty good race to the finish.
"can" become??! It is THE fundamental.. It is why economists are so full of shit.
I kinda wish my friends and a couple of other notables would break away from the kiddie table and lend their thoughts to real business, if even for the briefest moment. This is not an attempt to change your vote. That of course is futile. At the end of the day, your fucking politicians will still be there. I just wonder if you are already set, planning now, or are just going to complain afterwards. It's almost like a Slashdot poll, if you want to see it that way.
The answer is:
of all people, Obama himself, and not with mere noise, but real action! The democrat party is reaching back to its roots.
Some things are so obvious they shouldn't need explaining...
Now get off my back...
and have a Merry Christmas!
I wish they didn't kill the tree icon, ah well...
"Saudi Arabia did not immediately respond to requests for comment."
They got 60-70 years tops before Mad Max takes over completely, some people say less than 30, the market will decide...
The perversity of nature is nowhere better demonstrated by the fact that, when exposed to the same atmosphere, bread becomes hard while crackers become soft.
