Cheaper gas lowers
U.S. consumer prices 0.3%

Associated Press, by Christopher S. Rugaber

Washington — A steep fall in gas costs pushed down a measure of U.S. consumer prices last month, keeping inflation mild. The seasonally adjusted consumer price index dropped 0.3 percent in November from October, the Labor Department said Friday. Gas prices fell 7.4 percent, the steepest drop in nearly four years. That offset a 0.2 percent rise in food prices. In the past year, consumer prices have risen 1.8 percent, down from October´s 12-month increase of 2.2 percent. Excluding volatile food and gas, prices ticked up 0.1 percent in November and have risen 1.9 percent in the past year. Higher rents, airline

Posted for comic value; notice how they include or exclude key items such as energy, fuel, and housing in order to produce the desired results. Vast bulk of government-educated drones take news at face value, ignore rising prices everywhere.

I can´t figure out what to do with the $5.00 I just saved on my last fill up. Oh yeah, I´ll save it to pay the extra taxes next year.

Small consolation. Gas prices will will go up - way up and so will taxes. God forbid the government give up a ha´penny of revenue.

The $3.25 I saved on gas went towards milk which is running at $4 a gallon.

IMHO, they are simply selling as much as they can THIS year, since the tax burden next year will destroy demand and profits for the company.
And they have to pay for exploration and extraction SOMEHOW.

This is THE issue for Republicans.

Affordable gasoline - drill more here and the costs aren´t as high to transport, to refine, etc...

And it´s jobs!

Pipeline, steel making, truck drivers, construction, refining, and lots more.

We are a consumption economy so higher price of gasoline will hurt the buying-power of the average American. Don´t forget that the Social Secuity tax will be restored to 6.2% which will be a bit less in our pockets come Jan 1st.

Gas has to drop a long way before it hits the price when Bush left office at $1.84 per gallon.

The real message is that the administration is cooking the books and the press is helping. The administration took food and fuel out of the inflation index in order that it not look too ugly. Now that gas is coming down somewhat but the rest is showing and an increase, the press dutifully reports that prices are lower. Swine.

Goes goes up to 225% of the 2008 price when Obama was elected and not a whimper from the MSM.

Then it drops back to only 200% of the 2008 base price and it becomes a national holiday.

Meanwhile, a pound of the cheapest ground beef is still pushing the $5 mark.

Errr .... foaming at the mouth folks, Reality Check.
The reason prices are going down is because supply in the US is going UP due to the additional 1 million barrels/day production we´ve added over the past 2 years from the South Texas Eagle Ford and North Dakota Bakken shale formations.
Btw ... and imports have gone down an equal amount. That´s $86 million/day NOT leaving the US any more.
And we´re adding an additional ~50K/day more per month. Biggest bottle neck at the moment is we can´t build pipelines fast enough to carry it all to refineries.

It´s only cheaper now. Congress is already eyeing raising federal taxes on it.

Pupils found with handguns in school

Nearly 40 children have been found with guns on school premises over the last three years, a shocking new national survey has disclosed. Figures obtained from police forces across Britain showed guns and air weapons had been confiscated on 37 occasions by officers - including two hand guns. The other guns included 27 ball bearing guns and seven other air weapons. The figures showed almost 1,000 pupils in total were caught by police with weapons in schools including a Taser stun gun, a meat cleaver, three axes and a cut-throat razor. The total is likely to be only the tip

Trenton - Three people were shot today when gunfire erupted at a funeral at the Galilee Baptist Church in Trenton for a 19-year-old man killed in a shooting earlier this month. Two men are in stable condition at Capital Health Regional Medical Center after being taken by ambulance from the church and a woman, who was driven to the hospital, is being treated for a graze wound, said Trenton Police Director Ralph Rivera. One man is in custody and five guns have been seized after police stopped a car fleeing the church, Rivera said. The name of the man taken

4 Alabama counties have more active,

Montgomery, Alabama — Less than three months before the June primary, four Alabama counties had more voters on their rolls than what the Census Bureau says is their voting age population. Officials give a number of reasons for that, including under-counting by the census. Secretary of State Jim Bennett said the discrepancies create opportunity for voting fraud. “Every duplicate name and every bad address is just an opportunity for crooks to attempt to manipulate our elections,” Bennett said. Each county has a three-person board of registrars that is responsible for maintaining the voting lists with help from the secretary of

New York City — A belligerent bus rider who was caught on camera attacking a pair of senior citizens received a taste of street justice from fellow riders, who took him down and tossed him onto a sidewalk. The nearly 2-minute video starts with a straphanger verbally assaulting a woman sitting down in the bus’ priority seating. He goes on an expletive laden, sexually derogatory tirade, gradually moving closer toward the victim. Soon after, a rider with a cane stands up to defend the woman and the attacker pounces, knocking the man’s cane from his hand. That’s when several riders sprang

With the bells of Notre Dame heralding a glorious Easter Sunday morning, a tourist uses a cash point a short stroll from the ancient Paris cathedral. Within seconds he is surrounded by an aggressive gang of Roma sneak thieves, who make no secret of what they want from him. Feeling hands on his back and arms, the middle age man turns around in horror to see the utterly fearless gang casually trying to help themselves to his money. Such scenes have become so common in the French capital that police last week called for the ´systematic eviction´ of Roma.

Four teens and a 12-year-old were busted Monday after mugging three people in Central Park, police said. Police said the boys first struck about 5:15 a.m., confronting a 31-year-old man jogging in the park on the Fifth Ave. side near E. 95th St. The youths, one wielding a small wooden bat, demanded the man´s money, cops said. When the victim resisted, one boy punched him in the face and then took off with the rest of the group, police said. A short time later, the gang mugged two women ages 48 and 46, near the reservoir,

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

   

 



 
Michelle Obama:

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

The Citizens Commission on Benghazi, a self-selected group of former top military officers, CIA insiders and think-tankers, declared Tuesday in Washington that a seven-month review of the deadly 2012 terrorist attack has determined that it could have been prevented – if the U.S. hadn´t been helping to arm al-Qaeda militias throughout Libya a year earlier. ´The United States switched sides in the war on terror with what we did in Libya, knowingly facilitating the provision of weapons to known al-Qaeda militias and figures,´ Clare Lopez, a member of the commission and a former CIA officer, told MailOnline.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

New audio reveals an Eastern Connecticut State University professor warning that Republicans will “want things to go back — not to to 1955, but to 1855? if they win control of Congress in November. Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives
