    Uh, who is Bam Bam?

    If we don't control or deport a bunch of illegals, and quit spending a bunch of money overseas, and tap into oil reserves we are saving for a rainy day (IT IS RAINING HARD) we WILL be in a bad way regardless of who wins this November.

    If the media is any guage of what the average (!) American is thinking, we will be fighting for food in the streets. Man, talk about clueless.

    country deserves to be taken over for what I call the highest degree of apathy I have seen in 69 years of life here.

    Bushels of hype for 3 useless candidates.

    Pay no attention to the man behind the screen, Dorothy.

    Colonel Klink, the oil companies don't control the price of oil, any more than you or I do. The price of oil is being controlled in the futures market, and not by the producers. The prices you see quoted daily are for contracts to be delivered about ninety days out. If the producers controlled the price, as they used to, they certainly would not be at this level. The United States spends literally billions of dollars maintaining carrier groups in the Middle East to insure the flow of oil from Saudi Arabia, and other oil-producing countries.

    Because the oil in ANWR is on Federal land, the ultimate destination of the oil can be controlled by the U.S. Government. Your argument is with them, and not Exxon.

    As has been discussed on this site ad nauseum, Exxon's profits are not out of line with any other large corporation, and are considerably less than others. Exxon's profits are large because of the massive volumes in which they deal.

    You should be upset that government intervention in free markets, is driving upward prices for hundreds of commodities. Corn is expensive because the Feds think that ethanol is the second coming. Oil prices are high because of Federal limits on drilling (ANWR, Gulf of Mexico, Pacific and Atlantic Oceans). Food prices are up because of increases in fuel costs. No one wants refineries, mines, smelters, or any "smoke stack" industries next to their homes. Lead prices are up because of demand in emerging markets for car batteries; copper and others the same reason.

    The Feds have created the mess in the mortgage and housing markets. Their insistence that lenders provide loans to those who have no business in the market to begin with, has caused this sub-prime mess, yet everyone want to excoriate lenders for following Federal mandates.

    one of the reasons the oil is being controlled by the futures markets is that george h w bush made sure the oil industry was deregulated when he was vice president under his mouthpiece ron reagan along with the transportation & airline industries. if deregulation was so great why didn,t reagan deregulate the screen actors guild or the writers guild. does anyone besides me think it is odd that whenever there is a bush as president we are at war with oil producing countries. we all have heard the argument that exxon,s profits are in line with microsoft,etc etc. after all the bush in the whitehouse told us so on television. & let us not forget the bush in the whitehouse walking hand in hand with the crown prince of saudiarabia & then they kissed. & let us not forget the billions & billions & billions of dollars worth of weapons that the bush in the whitehouse sold saudi arabia last year. what do you suppose the saudi,s will do with them? dwain

    Dennis, you are wrong. Your assumption is correct but you must understand that the decisions of the Ragheads in the cartel (OPEC) is what drives the actions of the futures traders.

    If they decide to produce more, and sometimes they do because of pissing contests between them, traders holding profitable contracts might dump them to save the profit.

    this results in lower prices. The opposite is true also, of course, tightening supplies raises prices.

    So far they (OPEC)are sticking together pretty good.
