Have you heard what I have?
That this latest oil crisis may cause a war between the United States and the Middle East. With Iran.
Not this again.
Yep, now that the wars with the other countries over there are winding down, here comes the next one.
Why not? Gas is gonna go to five bucks – maybe even six – let’s declare war! Remember when the gas wars in this country were between stations trying to see who could sell for the lowest price?
Look, we have no real serious enemies here.
And nobody – and I mean nobody – wants to tangle with the United States military. We’re the ones who like to push our weight around when it’s to our advantage. No, you say? Wrong. Our government controls our media when it comes to things like this and no nation can match us for military might. Not even close.
Not since Rome has one country dominated like ours and I’m glad we do.
We are a warlike nation and always have been. What did the Indians do to us that we had to destroy them?
THEY GOT IN OUR WAY…that’s all.
Boy, that was a fair fight, huh? How about the Mexican wars…REMEMBER THE ALAMO?
We just wanted Texas and California so we kinda took them. Same for Florida. I know we paid a couple bucks here and there, but we wiped out the locals – usually Indians or Mexicans – no problem.
Now we have three ways to use our weapons and only inflict small death tolls. We do this a lot anymore and some innocent people get killed for, you know, for THE GREATER GOOD.
My favorite line is, "My son died for your freedom in Vietnam."
I’m sad to say, but no he didn’t. He died for our economy and power push, nothing else.
Oh yeah, the North Vietnamese were on the verge of attacking the U.S., just like in North Korea. Please. Nobody wants to attack us anymore, just ask Russia.
It’s as simple as this; the United States rules – totally – we call the ball.
Look, gas is going to be $4.50 or higher at some point this summer. And then in the fall/winter it will go back to $3.25 and you won’t hear about an "oil crisis." Then next year we’ll push $5 a gallon. They’re simply getting us ready for the continued hikes but there is plenty of oil out there.
Hey, cigarettes used to be $3 a pack in 2005, now they’re $7 and up. This kinda stuff just happens.
I know oil prices affect many other prices and it’s a shame we all suffer. Want to end it? Send Israel in for two days, then they can take 20% of the oil and we’ll take 70% and give Russia and China a taste.
But, no…we have to do it our way, long and hard. And in the end it’s great to be the king and the king is America.
I’m glad we’re on the championship team.
