First of all, check it out.
Can you believe it? This is Edison New Jersey, TODAY, 9/29/08. I'm here this morning as a course of my daytime employment. It's the job I want to leave only because I want to ditch my car. But gas prices like these gives me hope that car retention might stay possible.
These gas pirates. Tell me that whoever sells gas to this guy in Edison is selling it for less than they sell it to all the others. Prrrrrrobably not. Probably this gas station owner pays less rent for his station, okay, but also probably, this gas station owner is taking less profit and passing the savings on to the consumer. Hello?! Not a bad idea, right?
But OH no. We Americans have to be RICH. We got to have MORE than YOU. Viva la Capitalism! So lets all give Wall St.
to insure that our lifestyle continues as was. The big failure of these resolute companies, and the insolvancy of banks like Walk-Over-Ya ... i mean, Wachovia ... and WaMooooo! is in no way at all an indication that the system doesn't work and is basically corrupt at its core because people are greedy and lazy and elitist and found a way to make fast and an amorally LOT of money in their twenties without the emotional maturity to use it for the betterment of society as a whole. No no no. It's just fine the way it was.
So lets all pay for it with our taxes. After all, what would we be without an Overclass to provide us with the pervasive sense of dissatisfaction and personal failure?
