"With gas prices jumping by leaps and bounds daily(especially in our neck of the woods) and the price of a barrel of oil increasing daily, it makes me ill to hear these oil companies who were making 300 percent profits now pleading poverty. What do they think their $4.00/gal plus prices did to the consumers. Boo Hoo to them!!!"

"The federal budget is around 3.8 trillion. Half of that is spent on social security and health care. Around 450 billion goes to pay for the interest on the national debt. About one quarter goes for national defense. The rest for for education and welfare. So national defense which protects everyone is not too much."
