Nuke All the Terrorist Oil Rich States, including Texas

Why is the price of gas so high? And, why does it continue to rise?

Please, don’t try to sell me on the merits of a free market economy and global competition. I don’t want to hear it!

Whenever it cost more to drive my car back and forth to work than I earn working, it is time to go nuclear. Either blow up this job or all the oil rich countries. Frankly, I don’t care which.

I would just as soon park my old jalopy in the middle of the freeway and stop traffic and force everybody burn up their fuel just trying to get around me, than to watch my gas needle continue to hang on E somewhere east of the next gas station and west of the Middle East.

How can King Abdullah refuse to pump more oil? Isn’t Saudi Arabia our friends?

Never have I been more humiliated in my life than to see a US President go begging, hat-in-hand, to the Saudi monarch... and even worse, prostrating himself, Please give us more oil, "Your Highness".

King George II messed up... and messed up big time.

One day, George Bush is calling the Palestinian groups, Hamas & Hezbollah, "radicals and terrorists". The next day he is talking about how "it breaks my heart" that the Palestinians have been unable to establish peace and an independent homeland. And, the very next day he is begging for oil.

Talking about spiting your face... Sheesh!

What does President George Bush think? Does he think his approval rating in the Arab world is higher than his 22% rating at home? And, what part of Iran being a "terrorist state" does he think the rest of the Arab world agrees with? He is as naive as his would-be successor, John McCain, who swears he saw a putty-tat in Iran name al-Qaeda.

Is this the dilemma of war and peace in our age?

Gas is at $4 a gallon in the US, $8 per gallon in the UK, and $9.50 in the Netherlands. In the meantime, the Saudis are paying 45 cents a gallon. Forty-five cents, mind you!

And what about oil rich Texas, my own home state... an unheard of $3.75!

Yeah, nuke 'em... Texas, too. After all, this is George Bush home state also.


  1. I know this is OT but it is your area of expertese:

    So folks who don't know, here's whats going on.. Police terrorist committed a Sean Bell type murder on mother's day here in LA. They shot up a car filled with unarmed Black men after supposedly hearing gun-shots. Non of the passengers had a gun, committed a crime or shot anyone. The car was so riddled with bullets it look like swiss cheese. They showed the car on today's morning newscasts. This latest incident comes at the heels of a swarm of Philadelphia police beating down 3 men and the acquittal of NYPD officers who shot Sean Bell 50 times... Not sure what more can be said or done at this point, but it can't be business as usual.

    Inglewood police fatally shoot passenger, wound driverThe officers
    reportedly believed they were under fire. A 19-year-old L.A. man is
    killed. Shots were heard but no one is charged. By Ari B. Bloomekatz,
    Julie Cart and Hector Becerra, Los Angeles Times Staff Writers
    May 12, 2008 Believing they were under fire, Inglewood police officers
    Sunday shot and killed a passenger in an approaching car and wounded
    the driver, but no weapons were found and no one has been charged,
    authorities said.

    The passenger was identified as 19-year-old Michael Byoune of Los
    Angeles, who died at the scene from gunshot wounds to the torso, said
    Los Angeles County coroner's investigator Jerry McKibben.

    The officers were in their patrol car near Crenshaw Boulevard and 8th
    Avenue about 1:40 a.m. when they heard gunfire and pursued a man who
    was running, said Inglewood Police Sgt. Hector Ramirez.

    The man jumped into a slow-moving car in the 3000 block of Manchester
    Boulevard, and the officers heard more shots and felt something hit
    their cruiser, Ramirez said.

    The officers then fired several shots as the vehicle came toward them,
    according to police. The driver is in stable condition with a leg
    wound, and a third man in the car was not injured. He was taken into
    custody, questioned and released, police said.

    Police Sgt. Dennis Brown later said the patrol car had not been hit by
    gunfire. Investigators initially indicated that the incident might
    have been gang-related, but later said the three men were not
    suspected gang members.

    At a small vigil for Byoune on Sunday night, his mother, Jackie
    Roberts, 55, said her son had never been to jail and was not involved
    in violence or gangs.

    "Right now it's Mother's Day. Last year on Mother's Day he was there
    for me. Now he's not here and I won't see him no more," she said.

    Other family members described Byoune as "a big teddy bear" and said
    they were confused over the shooting.

    At a Rally's restaurant at Crenshaw and Manchester boulevards, night
    manager Vidal Garcia said he "heard a lot of gunshots" and was
    surprised police didn't find any weapons "because there were gunshots
    before the cops even got there."

    Another Rally's employee, who feared getting involved and asked not to
    be identified, said from his vantage point he saw only the police
    taking out their guns. He and two co-workers ducked as soon as they
    heard gunfire, and after more than 15 shots, he heard screaming, he

    The employee said he recalled hearing "Oh, I can't breathe" and "I'm
    not armed." The restaurant is about 30 yards from where the police
    opened fire.

    A manager at the adjacent Big Lots discount store said police did not
    ask for tapes from the store's outside security cameras.

    Reached at her home, Inglewood Police Chief Jacqueline Seabrooks
    declined to discuss the shooting. "This is not the time to call," she
    said, adding that it was not a business day.

    In officer-involved shootings, the Los Angeles County district
    attorney's office sends a team to the scene, according to spokeswoman
    Jane Robison. The team, which includes a prosecutor and an
    investigator, "conducts a parallel investigation" to the police probe.
    If there are discrepancies between the findings, the district
    attorney's office investigates further, Robison said.

    Over the last decade, the Inglewood Police Department has been dogged
    by scandal, including a nationally publicized 2002 videotaped beating
    of a handcuffed teenager and 2006 allegations of on-duty officers
    committing rape.

    Last year, The Times reported that federal investigators were looking
    into allegations that at least six current or former Inglewood
    officers had received sexual services at local massage parlors.

    In 2002, Inglewood police arrested and handcuffed 16-year-old Donovan
    Jackson for failing to comply with orders. After the teenager was
    handcuffed, one of the officers picked him up and slammed him against
    a patrol car.

    The scene was captured on video, and national media compared the
    incident to the 1991 Rodney King beating by Los Angeles police.

    BTW, in the "batcave" I have Davey D's e-Mail address.

  2. Thanks Kid. I'll check it out and see what I can find out. No doubt, local civil rights organizations are going to take up this case.
