GAS PRICES RISE AND NOT A WORD FROM THE POLITICIANS!

The price of gas continues to rise and the end is not in sight. Not a word has been heard from our self righteous politicians who say they are for the people.  Our wallets are busted, our money is gone, and no-one else has a dime to loan.  As prices continue to rise higher and higher it is now threatening the economic recovery.

What does our President have to say about all this?  “There is not much I can do about this now”. Isn’t that interesting?  The President of The United States says he is powerless as our economy goes down the drain.  Yet, he knows, as does everyone else that this whole thing is nothing more than a big farce. It is all based on what a bunch of speculators have to say. There projections, based on some slight if not non-existent fear, that the world is going to come crashing down around their rich lil’ ears.

For the average working Joe, wages are stagnate. They are not going up. The cost of living rises, taxes continue to increase, tax returns are smaller, and the cost of gas is going through the roof.  I wonder when someone is going to voice their concern?  I wonder when some political big shot is going to say enough is enough?  I wonder when someone is going to rise up and say that something must be done to stop this freight train of speculatory gas price projection.

When is the president going to say that’s it, they can’t take it anymore? That’s it we have to do something! Or is he just going to continue to watch as the whole country heads South? Mr. President, the time for leadership is now. There is no time to cop-out, no time for evasion, no time to wait and see.  The idea of forming some ad-hoc powerless, tax payer wasting task force to see if there was any or is any criminal action is silly.  We have not got the time for that.

Prices of Gasoline must be stabilized. To do that this president must take decisive action making it clear that those driving this thing must be responsible to the consumer. Or the President ,along with Congress, will have to step in and regulate this situation so that we are not eaten alive by some Speculation  Monster!

We are there, there is no further time to wait. The time for action is NOW!!!

That’s my point of view…..What do you think?…….Drop a line, and if not……..Thats OK too because as usual well see on the Web!

Have a good night and as usual………..God Bless America!

About THE HORTON JOURNAL A POLITICAL PERSPECTIVE

I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
