Well Mr. Stats Man, why don’t you stick to the Stats, and the sports, leave the public critical thinking to those who are capable of it. First of all, we wouldn’t have the problem in Iraq if it weren’t for Clinton. However that is history and not sports. I understand that’s not your specialty. Second ,If you don’t remember the world was a different place before 9/11, you couldn’t just arrest someone on suspicion. The FBI just couldn’t do it. But that was six years ago. I know Jocks don’t have that long of a memory, in case you forgot, stick to the Stats and leave the political critical thinking to those who can do it. And I believe, I don’t know maybe I am mistaken, that Bush was the first president in the history to say we need to get off of our reliance on oil? Am I mistaken? Oh that’s right short term memory; you probably don’t remember. Well allow me to remind you: HE DID! Allow me to refresh your short jock term memory. Stick to the Stats and leave the political critical thinking to those who can. Gas prices are going up simply because of supply and demand. I don’t know if you know this or not, but it takes like two barrels of oil to make one gallon of gas, not to mention that because you like the environment so much, California has special ingredients in their gas to make it cleaner. Which is why it costs a lot more than the rest of the nation. Also not to mention that oil is for a limited time only. If you are so outraged by the price of gas which one has to pump, refine, add ingredients, ship, store in a safe way, and hook up to another pump, while paying people the whole way to do these jobs. How do you feel about a bottle of Dasani, which is like five times more expensive than gas, and is the more abundant thing on the planet.
I don’t see you in an outrage about that, and if you think that Dasani is a luxury and gas is a necessity, pull your head out of your rear end. Stick to the Stats and leave the political critical thinking to those who can.
John Kerry didn’t mention that little fact about the Bush administration because he couldn’t. Do you really think in all your jock-like brilliance that you came up with something that would place the blame on the Bush administration, that all of John Kerry’s political advisers couldn’t? Let me clarify that John Kerry’s advisors went to Harvard, Yale, Stanford, and studied in political affairs and have majors in political sciences and whatnot. What is your major again? Where do you go to school again? I’m not sure, but maybe they thought about blaming it on the Bush Administration and just realized that they couldn’t do that??? Just MAYBE stick to the Stats and leave the political critical thinking to those who can. Thank you for your simple time.
