Hold On To Your Wallets: Price
Of Gas Approaches $4 A Gallon

WJZ-TV [Baltimore, MD], by Adam May

Posted By:NorthernDog, 2/11/2013 2:05:06 PM

BALTIMORE — Hold on to your wallets. Gas prices make the biggest February jump in decades. Adam May explains why. At the rate we’re going experts say $4 a gallon is just around the corner. 2013 is on track to be one of the most expensive years to fill ‘er up. Gas prices in Maryland–up 16 cents in just one month–nationally up 17 cents. AAA says it’s just the beginning. “The way prices have been increasing over the past few weeks we wouldn’t be surprised to see prices approach near $4 a gallon here in Maryland,” said Christine Delise, AAA.

Comments:
In our area it jumped to $3.50/Gal. this morning. Higher taxes, higher energy costs, higher medical costs, etc... How do you like Obama II so far?

I assume the press will blame Bush for the high cost of gas, can´t blame Obama.

And just why, exactly, isn´t Obama getting blamed for this?
Wuzzat? He´s a (D)?
Nah, that can´t be the reason.
I remember senate hearings with the previous president.

How much of the hike is attributable to increasingly scarce ethanol, which thanks to the Energy Policy Act of 2005 must be included in gasoline? Congress eliminated the ethanol subsidy but not the mandate, so any increases in ethanol prices are reflected in the pump price.

#6 - Thanks for pointing out that the ethanol mandate was kept. The upside is intead of the hardworking subsidizing this madness with our taxes, the 47% now gets to pay their "fair share". That part I like, but its yet another example of the GOP only going half-way. The mandate should have been dumped along with the subsidy.

Prices jumped 45 cents in one week here in rural northern California. Regular is $3.98, midgrade $4.08, and supreme at $4.18.

Obama is so awesome! We don´t have to go to France for vacation, we´re all Europeans now. /heavy s

Actually, the US isn´t allowed to export crude. They can however run it through some very simple processes and ship the products. The big problem is that no one predicted that entrepreneurs would develop the process of horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracture sufficiently to extract 1.5 million barrels a day of oil from tight formations by the end of 2012. And the refineries were prepped for getting very heavy sour crude and the light sweet crude doesn´t fit the investment. It would be nice if tar sands would finally arrive at the Gulf of Mexico, but the ditherer in chief has slowed that by at least a year. The good news is that oil from Eagle Ford has made the connection to the gulf so the east coast refineries can be supplied by ship (large barges).

#5 To my knowledge the USA does not export oil, as it is illegal to do so. There might be some limited exceptions to this, but those are due to oil not being able to reach market from where it is produced due to pipeline or other logistical issues.

It´s actually unfair that oil cannot be exported and is a subsidy from royalty owners and small producers to the large domestic refineries. Oil international prices are marketedly higher than Texas Sweet Crude for this reason.

Also, note that crude oil is not uniform. Refineries have to blend it to get the corect mix for gasoline. As a result, often there is some sort of extra type of crude that needs to go to some other market.

Remember the $8.00 a gallon of gas goal ?

Gas, food, utilities, and almost everything else is up, while paychecks are down.

Ah did not vote for that man-either time.

I have no idea whose conducting this poll but out here in certain parts of California, we have not seen gaiAt s prices so low as $4.00 a gallon in a number of years. At its peak, it was around $5.20 - $5.80... as the Dems want it wait until $8.00 a gallon is the new normal. Here in CA $4.50 - $4.75 is our new normal. People, here have lost jobs because they cannot pay the price of petrol to get to their work.

I do believe that is BO´s agenda...BK everyone into poverty so they have no jobs, no cars, no homes, no bank accounts. Confiscate property and either hand to the highest bidder or don it out to your "next best friend". = $donor. That is BO´s concept of "fair share" and "spread the wealth around".

How Chicago Became ‘Chiraq’
Daily Beast, by Michael Daly    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/22/2014 2:52:28 PM     Post Reply
President Obama may have gotten our troops out of Iraq, but the gunfire in his hometown of Chicago is still earning it a searing nickname coined by young people who live there. Chiraq. On Easter weekend, 45 people were shot in the city, six of them children. Five youngsters under the age of 15—four girls and a boy—were shot in a playground where they had gone after Easter services at a nearby church. (Snip) “Until we do something about guns, don’t expect things to change overnight,” McCarthy said at a press conference that same day. McCarthy noted that Chicago cops

NEW YORK — They were designed for the 1964 World´s Fair as sleek, space-age visions of the future: three towers topped by flying-saucer-like platforms, and a pavilion of pillars with a suspended, shimmering roof that was billed as the "Tent of Tomorrow." That imagined tomorrow has come and gone. Now the structures are abandoned relics, with rusted beams, faded paint and cracked concrete. As the fair´s 50th anniversary approaches, the remains of the New York State Pavilion are getting renewed attention, from preservationists who believe they should be restored and from critics who see them as hulking eyesores that should

The Obama Administration continued its push to reduce the number of prisoners serving long sentences as a result of the nation’s federal drug laws on Monday with an announcement by Attorney General Eric Holder describing new rules that would expand the pool of convicts eligible to apply for presidential clemency. In a video released by the Department of Justice, Holder said they will expand the existing criteria government attorneys use to consider which offenders may be eligible for clemency. Later this week Deputy Attorney General James Cole will announce the new criteria, which Holder expects will lead thousands to apply

At a petite 5’3’’, Sage Santangelo may not look like a combat fighter at first glance. But the female second lieutenant has never let that hold her back from pursuing her dream of becoming an infantry officer in the Marine Corps. Growing up, Santangelo found she was always able to keep up with the guys and enjoyed playing hockey on all boys’ teams. But when she joined the Marines, Santangelo found the playing field changed; she was segregated into female-only training units and as a woman, was relegated to less strenuous physical training than her male counterparts. And that’s why,

Russia ´outraged´ as east Ukraine
shootout shatters Easter truce

Slavyansk Ukraine- A deadly gunfight in a town in restive east Ukraine on Sunday shattered a fragile Easter truce, with Russia declaring it was "outraged" at the return to violence in the crisis-hit former Soviet republic. Three pro-Russian militants and one attacker were killed in a firefight at a roadblock close to the separatist-held town of Slavyansk, said a local pro-Kremlin rebel leader, Vyatcheslav Ponomarev. Vladimir, a masked 20-year-old pro-Russian rebel who was at the barricade, told AFP: "Four cars pulled up to our roadblock around 1:00am (2200 GMT Saturday).

Pipeline delay gives boost

Washington - The latest delay to a final decision on the Keystone XL oil pipeline will reinforce a White House strategy to energize President Barack Obama´s liberal-leaning base before fall elections in which Democrats risk losing control of the U.S. Senate. Environmentalists, worried about the project´s effect on climate change, have put enormous pressure on the president to reject the pipeline from Canada´s oil sands, staging demonstrations outside the White House and protests in states where he travels. A decision to approve it now could have prompted that vocal group, which was instrumental in electing Obama in 2008 and 2012,

Gospel story of Jesus’ resurrection a
source of deep rifts in Christian religion
Washington Post, by Kimberley Winston    Original Article
Posted By: NorthernDog- 4/19/2014 10:46:11 PM     Post Reply
“On the third day, he rose again.” That line, from the Nicene Creed, is a foundational statement of Christian belief. It declares that three days after Jesus died on the cross, he was resurrected, a glimmer of the eternal life promised to believers. It’s the heart of the Easter story in seven little words. But how that statement is interpreted is the source of some of the deepest rifts in Christianity — and a stumbling block for some Christians, and more than a few skeptics. Did Jesus literally come back from the dead in a bodily resurrection, as many traditionalist

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.

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.

Public Trust: Sixty-one percent polled say President Obama lies "some of the time" or "most of the time" on matters of national importance. Americans have to ask: Why do we let him get away with it? It´s no surprise that a Fox News poll of 1,012 registered voters last week found immense distrust of a president whose main domestic initiative was based on a lie. The shock is that the same poll found his disapproval level down to its lowest since last fall. Asked, "How often do you think Barack Obama lies to the country on important matters?" 37% replied "most of

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
