I hear this morning on talk radio stations that most NYS families are spending on yearly average double their annual Federal Income Tax Refund payout.
I also hear Liberal and Conservative radio newscasts rushing through reports about President Barack Obamas' Thursday speech at the DNC in the same fashion they would read a car accident story.
"It was stale and empty. He's out of juice." ~ The Wall Street Journal
Add the negative press about the DNC - God and Jerusalem to the mix.
I have blogged previously that GASOLINE has the power determine the outcome of the November election.
One caller to a radio program, upset about the platform vote, which he claimed "had already been determined by teleprompter" stated "...they (Democrats) would need 12 years in the White House and a War for Obama to save face." An obvious reference to FDR and WW2.
No one sees the truth. Gasoline at $3 and under would instantly return the USA to prosperity. Consumer confidence would rocket off the chart. Jobs would rebound. People would feel comfortable buying homes again. But, due to greed and other factors, we may never see those prices again.
What we WILL see, are electric cars... not the electric cars like GM's "too good" EV-1. The electric cars that will cost consumers more money than they bargained for. They've already figured out how to "make it so." They just haven't told us about it... yet!
Case in point ::: you know those "he" - "high-efficiency" washing machines? They've been out long enough that a major built-in flaw has emerged with precision timing, forcing people who bought this junk to spend more money. You have to buy HE CLEANER or your washer, your house and your clothes will STINK.
It's all about getting YOUR "money...money...money" as Eugene Krabs would say.
