Where, when, or how will it all end - if ever? We have created a medusa of a monster that threatens our way of life. We have become victims of our own greed and extravagance. It makes me want to find my own island and grow bananas, live a simple life and contemplate nature. Wish I could find Gilligan's Island - it didn't seem so bad.

There are some very good points in that report, but it seems to be very blatant in its bias. Typical with government politics, amendments get tagged onto unrelated bills. I'm a farmer and a beneficiary of government farm programs, but it's ridiculous the level of increased funding that got stuck into the Farm Bill on this election year, obviously to buy votes. I believe McCain was prudent in opposing it as was Bush in vetoing it. It did become law, however, as Congress overrode the veto. I had not heard that the bill included anything to close the "Enron loophole" until now. However, since the bill has become law, when are we going to see the relief?

Speculation certainly can drive up prices. Speculation can also drive prices down. Speculation basically makes markets more volatile. How about speculation in the housing market and how that has cost many people their savings as the bubble burst? Why isn't there some complaining about that? Because we can only blame greedy consumers and not some big corporations? Should we regulate housing prices to avoid runaway housing prices?

There is a very legitimate need for what is often called "speculation". Hedging is sometimes referred to as speculation but it protects a producer and buyer and consumer at the same time, allowing someone to fix their product price at some future date. This reduces risk and usually reduces prices, but what is happening now is speculators not even involved in the industry (I forget the brokerage house mentioned in the video) taking huge positions in oil contracts. For them, it's the same as trading stocks and betting on a further rise. The more they buy the more they help drive up the price of their contracts they already own.

Anyway, the Farm Bill was a poor bill and should not have been passed. Reversing the Enron loophole is another matter. Trailer are part of the evil of politics.

Harvey, I think it's apples and oranges. No one held a gun to peoples heads and forced them into ARM loans they couldn't afford down the road. They could have stayed in an apartment or the smaller house they already owned. Now the government is going to set a really bad example and bail those people out, and then screw us again by helping their banker buddies who lied on the mortgage applications. Of course both dems and pubs will try to take credit for "helping" in the 08 elections.

When we bought our house 4 years ago some real estate agents tried telling us we could afford a house waaaay over our budget with an interest only arm loan. We said F you, we know what we can afford and took a 30 year fixed. Everybody else had the same option we had, they just decided to gamble on the bubble not bursting and refiying later, but they lost. So speculation, yeah to some extent.

Oil prices are another issue and it looks like McCain has his hand in the cookie jar.

MsKitty, do you use oil to heat your house? I was talking to a friend in NY and he said if the oil price stays at what it is right now he will be spending $600 a month to heat the house and make hot water this winter. He's looking to move back to Cali to get away from that and the ever increasing property taxes he pays there. If it goes even higher I don't know how people are going to heat their homes!

Give up yet? ... Scroll down,

Neither, it's the 535 members of the United States Congress.

The same group of Idiots that crank out hundreds of new laws each year designed to keep the rest of us in line.

******

I'm sure we can count on Congress to solve our energy problems though, right????

I was in Washington, D.C. recently on vacation and got a tour of the Capitol by a HR staffer. Nice young guy. I was alone with him for a while while we went to see if the line on the Senate side was shorter to get it (there were zero in line there compared to several hundred on the HR side because senators apparently have longer terms and don't give a hoot and won't bother to have their staffers give us a tour). He had only been there since last summer after getting out of college. I asked him what kind of career he saw in this and if all of the political games didn't bother him. He said he probably would not stick around for more than another year. The whole system is about playing games, it seems. Term limits should be something like two years for everybody, I think. After that, most are corrupt if they were not already.

Mitchel, I agree that people are responsible for getting into bad loans, but many people are not educated enough to make good financial decisions. If prices had not run up to ridiculous levels, there would have been less risk for everyone. We like to accuse oil companies of being greedy but when we see the prices of our homes appreciate to ridiculous levels, most of us think it is okay. I think it is bad for the entire country. Do I think house prices should be regulated? Probably not, with these clowns we have writing our laws!!!

You like to say that McCain has his hand in the cookie jar and I believe that's an unfair and inaccurate statement. He previously supported eliminating the Enron loophole and now he is accused of something because of things his campaign managers have done. In this video, it is quietly (without emphasis) mentioned that Obama also has a campaign advisor that has lobbied for the petroleum industry but that Obama voted for the Farm Bill. Is that supposed to be good??? It is implied that McCain is bad because he voted against a Farm Bill that included a provision to eliminate the Enron loophole. The Farm Bill contained $10-$20 billion in wasteful spending and not a dime was being used to undo the unrelated Enron loophole. If congress really wanted to undue the Enron loophole, why didn't they do it as a stand-alone bill? Or why not part of the Energy Bill passed last year that has banned the use of incandescent light bulbs (forcing us to use hazardous CFL bulbs)?

The report stinks of media bias and does not give a true picture of all of the facts.

Don't shoot me! I heat my house with free natural gas. There are gas wells on my farm. The original owners kept the gas rights and probably get royalty checks of $10,000-$20,000 per month. Boo hoo, but at least I get free gas for my house (not to be used for outdoor uses, etc.). I feel bad for people that live in cold climates and pay through the nose for heating.

Obama has scum bags around him but doesn't need to because he's one himself. He regrets voting to spare Terri Shaivo's life (reminder: she was not on life support, she had a feeding tube). He supports federal funding of abortions and has stated that if his daugthers made a mistake he would not want them to be "punished" with a child and have the right to an abortion. Whole lotta love. NOT!

A lot of people see Obama as a way to stop the killing in Iraq. What about the killing of our unborn here - 4,000 unborn babies each day getting their limbs yanked off or burnt to death with a saline solution. Those are just some cold hard facts, with no bias thrown in at all. And it's not just a party issue, check out Democrats For Life of America if you're a Democrat.

Shaivo should have never been a political issue to begin with.

A woman's right to choose is something you and I will never agree on so that's a mute point.

BTW, I'm an indy. I have never voted for a pub and for sure won't vote for McSame but I would have voted for Ron Paul even though he doesn't agree with me on the right to choose. You have to pick your poison and this time the poison I pick will be whoever is going to take us 180 degrees from where Bush has us. McCain is not that person, sorry.

Like it or not, politicians are the folks that right laws to protect citizens. Terri Shaivo was a citizen who deserved protection. The legal system was corrupt and failed her. Maybe you're not aware, but her husband testified during a suit early on after her mysterious injury that he needed an insurance settlement so he could take care of her for the rest of her life. Then, after he has a girlfriend, he mysteriously remembers her saying that she would never want to live like that even though her close friend testified to the contrary. The judge in charge of her case is a member of a society that promotes euthanasia. Why don't you think politicians should enact laws to protect people from such horrible crimes?

It's odd how people have bought into Planned Parenthood's slogan about "right to chose". It's not just the woman's body, you know. The baby has a heart beat 21 days after fertilization and brain waves at about 40 days. It's a baby, not a "choice". Here is a woman who was born alive during a saline abortion, with cerebral palsy as a result of being burned in her mother's womb: GiannaJessen.com. That's a "choice"??? I heard her speak at the Walk For Life West Coast back in January and her testimony was remarkable as she does not hold bitterness against anyone.

I also think Ron Paul would be a better choice than McCain. But McCain is a far better choice than Obama. I think the political system is screwed up pretty bad when we can't get better candidates than this!

By the way, back to the original video. The Farm Bill was a terrible piece of legislation and the report did a big injustice to the audience to make it seem like a great thing that Obama voted for it. Today I got my letter from the Farm Service Agency informing me of an appointment to come in and sign up for my farm subsidy not that Congress overrode the veto. Despite corn and wheat being at record prices (the program crops for which my farm has a history base), I'll get a subsidy of about $2-$3,000 this year. Are you happy about that??? My income will be high this year so I'll be paying a lot of income taxes, so I don't feel quite so bad about it. I can't even refuse payment without forfeiting the right to payment in future years when conditions might make it necessary to receive subsidies. What a system.

One more thing about the Farm Bill. Congress was so eager in spending all of that money that they couldn't even get it straight. The bill they sent to President Bush and which he vetoed was missing about 30 pages. So they had to pass it again and send him the correct copy which he dutifully vetoed again. Idiots!

Her brain was mush for 15 years. If you want the government to tell you how to live or not live your life then that's fine for you, but I prefer the choice to die when I or my loved ones want without the corrupt politicians and churches getting involved.

BTW, her husband was offered 10 million to sign over his guardianship to her parents which he turned down.

And if you and your like really wanted her to not only continue to feed from her tube but actually make a real recovery and live life again you should support stem cell research. Bush and the anti choice people have seriously set the US led research back even though fetuses are no longer needed for research.

Again, you can type until your blue in the face but the fact is it won't do a thing to change my stance on this. Besides, we have much bigger fish to fry in this country thanks in large part to Bush and his "war" These pro/anti choice issues I could really care less about when people who are actually living and breathing on this earth are already suffering from bogus politics.

And a little info on McSame:
McCain leads all other senators, and all others who ran for president, in contributions from the oil and gas industry, according to the Center for Responsive Politics’ analysis of federal data in the 2007-08 election cycle. McCain collected $724,000 through May, from the oil companies themselves, not the employees.

Default Re: Next time you fill up your tank....

Terri's brain was not "mush". The judge would not even allow independent brain scans or listen too outside doctors, only ones he had chosen. Have you seen videos of where it appeared she was following the motion of a ballon? Have you read of cases of patients in similar conditions suddenly coming conscious even though that was never expected. Terri never made the choice to die. Her husband was no longer her "loved one" (an affidavit was filed in court where a nurse stated he said "I wish the bitch would die". He only refused the payment after he had gone too far down the slipper slope of his lies. He was living with another woman and had children with his girlfriend. He wanted Terri dead so he could remarry. Period.

Mitchel, you seem to be poorly informed on stem cell research. I support stem cell research. But not embryonic stem research that requires the destruction of human embryos that should be future citizens of our world. Maybe you'd like my liver for your own benefit? Destroying other human life for the benefit of your own is terribly greedy and evil. In addition, embryonic stem cells usually turn into tumors. Many successes have been discovered with adult stem cells, however, and that's where we should be focusing more research towards. In addition, in the past year scientists in the U.S. and Japan have discovered that they could create the same type of stem cells as embryonic stem cells by using adult stem cells. Still, some people prefer to just keep killing human life.

Okay, you chose to use the word "anti-choice" for us pro-lifers. Okay if you start going by "pro-baby killer"??? The "choice" is killing. Call it what it is and be honest about it. The vast majority pregnant women that are considering an abortion but have an ultrasound chose not to go through with an abortion. It's simple to understand why: they see that the abortion is about to kill a baby. You don't have children by your own choice, but you still certainly have know people that have rejoiced over seeing an ultrasound of their developing child. They understand how precious that child is; how can it be considered civilized to kill such innocent life?

My face is not turning "blue". I remain calm and rationale in the discussion of pro-life issues.

Now, why do you call it "Bush's war"? Don't you remember how nearly everyone in congress, including Democrats, said they supported the action? But when it turns ugly and public opinion sways in the wind, they change their tune. Maybe it would be helpful to read some of these quotes to get what people really think: snopes.com: Weapons of Mass Destruction Quotes.

Mitchel, the name is McCain. You seem to have a bit of trouble spelling his name! Do you thinking using something real witty like that is helpful in having an intelligent discussion?

Okay, I don't like McCain getting money from oil companies. Even worse, I don't like Obama getting money from Planned Parenthood, the biggest provider of abortions in the U.S. Few people know the history of Planned Parenthood. Planned Parenthood was originally known as the American Birth Control League. Her primary objectives were to rid the country of less desirable populations. Real sweet lady that gave women lots of freedom, right? Not! Margaret Sanger, Racist and Pro-Abortion I believe you can Google and find that she even went camping with Adolf Hitler.

Mitchel, I don't expect you to change your mind anytime soon, if ever. Both others deserve to hear what I believe is a more rationale view than your own.

By the way, I do pray every night for an end to the War in Iraq and all wars. I also pray that all of our leaders will be aided in making good decisions. They all need all the help they can get!

Peace to you.
