  1. There’s plenty of things to blame Nancy Pelose about, but I don’t think gas prices is one of them.

    When gas prices shot passed the $3 mark last summer, I didn’t blame Bush.

    Funny though how gas prices do get lower before the election and rise afterwards.

  2. You may not have, Pat, but Nancy Pelosi did.

    Therefore, one is perfectly justified in holding her accountable, since she insisted that this would never happen with Democrats in control of Congress.

    Then again, as I’m fond of pointing out, she also shrieked at the highest volume that anyone who committed campaign finance fraud should immediately resign their leadership position and kick themselves out of Congress.

    We’re waiting.

  3. And that was my point, of course, NDT. 🙂

    The Liberal Collective’s memory is awfully short, ain’t it?

  4. Well, first, GP, I don’t think you can properly or fairly lump Pat in with the “liberal collective” — not sure if that was your intention, but it was how I read it. He most emphatically is not.

    That being said, you’re absolutely right. Democrats rely on the fact that their special-interest groups suffer from a singular lack of curiosity and short-term memory. That’s why they, like Pelosi, can rant about campaign finance fraud one minute and commit it the next; they know their supporters won’t ask questions — or even remember what they said in the first place.

    Where that is causing them problems is now that they’re in visibility. True, their media puppets have done a good job of shielding abuses like Pelosi’s; ironically, what that’s done, though, is give Democrats the idea that they can do as they like with impunity. That’s why Pelosi nominated Jefferson to Homeland Security; she honestly believed that everyone had forgotten about his corruption and she thought her puppets would cover up the fact that she was nominating someone who would be ineligible for a security clearance to a committee that oversees sensitive data and intelligence, as they had her other decisions previously.

  5. No lumping intended, Pat!

  6. Okay, thanks. I forgot that she did mention it. Because again, a comment like that is absurd, which is probably why I took it as garbage, and forgot about it.

  7. Funny though how gas prices do get lower before the election and rise afterwards.

    Pat, with respect, you may have also forgotten the 2004 elections here. When gas prices got higher before the election – then declined after.

    I’d think that, with evil BusHitlerCheneyCoBurton in control of the world and running in a tight re-election, that sort of thing couldn’t possibly have happened. 😉

  8. Argue. Sorry I blew the blockquote. First block is Pat’s. Second is my reply.

  9. Aargh! Sorry I even blew the word “aargh” too! Will shut up now.

  10. Democratonomics….. hard on your wallet. ………. with taxes not gas prices…………

    gas prices are being driven by the futures market which robs Americans and the world of billions of dollars with inflated cost of goods without cause, except for the ability to buy and drive up the futures price………….

    the worse part of a free enterpirse system……………

    the feds will not touch the futures market eventhough it cost our government billion up billions…………..

  11. Still nobody will address the fact that the federal government makes about 6X what the oil companies do on each gallon of gas.

    Think ExxonMobil made a$$loads? Just imagine what the feds took in.

  12. Think ExxonMobil made a$$loads? Just imagine what the feds took in.

    Here’s the answer (courtesy of The Tax Foundation):

    While they were recording record profits last year, they were also writing checks to Uncle Sam to the tune of $100.7 billion — two and a half times what they made in net profit. In fact, previous Tax Foundation research found that from 1977 to 2004, federal and state governments extracted $397 billion by taxing the profits of the largest oil companies and an additional $1.1 trillion in taxes at the pump. In today’s dollars, that’s $2.2 trillion.

  14. Corporations dont exist… so guess who really pays high corporate income tax bills? The customers.

    Comment by Vince P — March 7, 2007 @ 12:39 am - March 7, 2007

  15. Corporations do exist if only in a legal sense.

    You are correct in saying that customers pay the corporations tax bill but they are not alone. I would add employees and shareholders to the list.

    Comment by John in IL — March 7, 2007 @ 1:16 am - March 7, 2007

  16. Of course Corporations exist as legal fiction.

    Agreed regarding the employees and shareholders.

    High corp. taxes being viewed as (all else being equal) unreducable fixed cost for absolutely no competitive advantage… well we all know what happens to companies who are in markets that are not so forgiving of such circumstances. New market entrants by parties not ladened with such costs (overseas corporations).
