SNAP (food stamps) is not a function of the president. It is a need based program. If you are attributing more food stamp usage to the weak economy, then remember the economy that he inherited.

I don't attribute the quality of a person by how much they give away.

What exactly do you think Heinberg has wrong?
The article that you have linked to is for the foolhardy.
The US has been importing close to 10 million barrels daily, and that looks set to continue.

The cost of getting the Oil out of shale is very high, and those supposed "reserves" will not get you low gasoline prices.

Better wake up, before it is too late. Examine your driving habits, and the alternative places you might live to cut down on your commute. That's only good sense. Can you not see the clear trend that is in place?

* basically this admin and the eco freaks want to kill fossil fuel use...instead we'll all have wind mills...

I guess checking your hypothesis is out of the question?

1. -http://www.stanford.edu/group/ruralwest/cgi-bin/drupal/energy/refinery-fort-berthold
2. a pipeline will have NO impact on lower prices at the pump.
3. see above
4. that has been lifted - it came from the BP disaster, if you recall there were quite a few coaastal people not happy about what oil can do to thier lifestyle
5. specifics are out of the question? you have made no clear association with any regulation that has affected gas prices
6. eco freaks - you mean residents that are concerned when their tap water burns or their toilets explode?

* why doi you cling to an outmoded model? if something better comes along you still want to hold on to the old way? bet you don't own a buggy whip.

This thread can be summed up as armchair rants based on no facts - FAIL!

oh btw - the high of gas prices came under W when it peaked at $4.14

i guess you don't want to mention:
the removal of gas guzzlers from the roads
decrease in demand of oil
increase in the fuel economy of cars
increase in alternate transportation

No. That's not what is happening.
Gasoline prices are rising, because oil supply is limited, and Americans have to buy their enormous imports in competition with other countries, at a time when the US currency is weakening.

I don't see any connection with Chicken Little. Can you kindly explain it?

In the long term, all those things will matter less than simply ditching the old-fashion car-dependent suburban lifestyle. It is really only for suckers who are willing to have their wealth drained by big oil and the car companies.

Those so-called "facts" are bogus. You'd better do some more work.
