A story that needs to be told

Here is a Story that needs to be told… Over the Week between Christmas 2008 and New Years 2009 we camped down at Cement Flats at Glamis. Not overly crowded, and very peaceful fun weekend.

Interesting reading----According to Lawrence Kudlow: The recent spike in oil prices and unemployment is dramatically changing this presidential campaign -- virtually overnight.

Re: $4.00 $5.00 $6.00 $?.?? a gallon. Who's to blame?

But there's more to it than that. Oil was at about $28 a barrel for about 25 years starting in the late 70s. So the cost of oil has actually gone up about 500% from that $28 level to the $136 level we have today in about 5 years or so. The dollar issues account for some of the problem, but really o...

Who's to Blame... YOU ASK.... It's all so very simple... I am glad you asked! 2-3 years ago barrel of oil was at around $55-60 per, our dollar was worth a dollar or one Euro... Today barrel of oil is $110-120 per, and dollar is worth 1/2 Euro [or 50 cents] Now, if you think the OPEC's of the world a...
