    Republican non-regulatory myth of small government.

    Myth exploded:  It's the speculators, stupid!  It's the goddamn casino that BushCo has created, nurtured and fostered that is at the dark heart of disaster capitalism.  It's the goddamn derivatives, unregulated hedge funds playing for profit in the futures markets.

    That, in a nutshell, is why our fuel prices are so high, so out of line.

    Laissez-faire, and "Let them eat cake...." ???

    They had a solution for this elitism in the French Revolution, idiotas, and the people will not be denied their big, bloody show!  

    If these markets are not brought under control and bridled immediately, there will be even greater hell to pay for it than you assholes can possibly imagine come November!  It gets real cold in northern Minnesota in August, you fools!  

    There is no time left to fix this!

    You play at a dangerous game, elitists!  For you they invented the guillotine!  Go and visit La France, please, you idiots!  There, they will know how to deal with you, swift and true.

    Or, do you want to have a social democracy here?  

    Moderate democrats PelosiReid just tempt us and egg us on.  Do you want a governable citizenry, or do you want to foment lawless citizen activism to burn down your bloody homes?!

    America, WTF!!?

      the Richistani who have been permitted to make this mess will get in their private jets and fiy far away, having wired the money from their US bank accounts to their offshore accounts on the way out.
