I don't think I have ever posted on this forum, but I read it a lot. However, I could not let this one go. That was an outstanding video by that young man and I appreciate what he has done for us.
Garyt - Maybe you aren't old enough, but 6.1% unemployment is not a record.http://www.data360.org/dsg.aspx?Data_Set_Group_Id=248
You can see it in the above link.
Our economy is not failing. We are number one in the world in gross domestic product.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...y_GDP_(nominal
You know why heating oil is going up? Simple economics - supply and demand. The leaders of the house and senate refuse to allow a vote on drilling offshore and in ANWAR, because they are afraid of the result. We are supposed to go "jawbone" with Saudia Arabia for more oil, but we won't stand up and get our own.
The rest of the world does not hate us. I am a retired GI and have been around the world. They are envious of us. You think oil is a lot here - try Germany. Why are there 15 million illegals here if we are so bad?
Sorry about the rant, but that young man has an opinion and a well deserved right to express it and I stand with him..
