    cnn reports:
    Bush said he expected Saudi Arabia to do "everything they can" to provide more oil.
    of course it took him about 3 minutes to say it cause he kept stumbling over his words as usual.
    However, I was able to decode the message and got this:
    "Me, Daddy, and our them there friends are doing everything we can to take your money and go on vacation".

    [face_laugh] :_| It might be a bit more funny if it wasn't so close to being the truth. I have nothing to say about gas prices except that now they are way out of hand.

    From Comcast/Associated Press:

    Price hikes were evident at stations nationwide Wednesday as gasoline costs breached $3 a gallon in numerous states, the result of fuel pipeline shutdowns and delayed deliveries since Hurricane Katrina devastated Louisiana and Mississippi earlier this week.

    Concerns are now mounting over limited supplies of gasoline, including the possible return of long lines and scarcity reminiscent of the 1970's gas crisis. In Georgia, a few gas stations were charging as much as $6 per gallon Wednesday after other retailers had run out of gas and long lines were reported across the state. In response, Gov. Sonny Perdue signed an executive order authorizing state sanctions against gas retailers who gouge consumers.
    The market did receive some help Wednesday when the federal government said it would loan oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve to refiners facing shortfalls.

    Sorry, Matt...you set yourself up for that one :D Peace? @};-


    Gas Prices are out of hand. One of the Project Managers I work with in Carlsbad filled up his car yesterday for 3.08 a gallon. Someone told him that the prices will be at 3.80 a gallon by the end of the week. Something needs to be done, and quick. These prices are out of hand.

    no use complaining about things...as long as we are willing to pay it will continue to get worse...so, ride a bike, take the bus or start car pooling...if i didnt work 20 miles from home i would definately bike...as for the presidents bumbling speech well here it is last i checked he was a human, albeit the human leading the most powerful nation on earth, but still a human and guess what, humans stutter, mumble in their speech, give the man a break, he isn't God is he?

    Hey you said not me!

    And yes idiotic masses. He supports the troops so much that he supported them in doing nothing when the VA get the funding cut so all those brave folks who are in need don't get it. But yet nobody see's that, hmmmm. I don't support war mongers, if he is so freaking rightgeous and correct, why doesn't he send his alcholic daughters(like daughters like father) off to help out.

    And for the record Don't buy all the BS about over sociolism, there is nothing wrong with other types of government. the thing that messes them up are the idiots in charge, like the dumbass we have running are capitalist system. Read about it before making the comments, oh wait that would be just like all the idiots who vote without being properly informed.

    GO LOBOS
