Former Vice President and Nobel Peace Prize winner Al Gore endorsed Barack Obama in Detroit a few hours ago..
Who didn’t see that coming?
Now what would be a surprise is if Obama names him as his running mate..and WE KNOW that ain’t going to happen…LOL
Terry Mcauliffe, Clinton’s campaign chairman wants Michigan and Florida delegates to count and it they are ’do overs’ he wants them to be primaries and not caucuses well of course he does right.. he gave some BS excuse that primaries allow people more time to vote and that they are easier for people to get too…lol..!!
Man, the Clinton people aren’t just throwing the kitchen sink, they are throwing the sink, all the plumping even the whole damn kitchen but I’m willing to put my neck on the block and say that if there is a do over in Michigan Hillary will NOT win!
She only won in Michigan because the voters knew that their votes didn’t count and frankly didn’t care now that they have seen that their votes can and could make or break the nomination they aren’t going to back her and that’s with or without Detroit!
Oil prices hit $100 a barrel briefly today before falling back.
If oil prices continue to rise and we see sustained oil prices at $100 a barel in the short term this is going to mean higher gas prices for me and you and higher heating oil prices in the long term higher prices across the board for every day items. I could also talk about the impact this is going to have on specific industries and in the long term this could fuel a recession that although we’re technically not in doesn’t stop the everyday person from believing we are.
Although I have my doubts, I really do hope this inspires people to start pressuring their elected officials and the car makes to spend more on developing alternative fuels and to put more into hybrids. Detroit MUST go greener sooner rather than later because after reaching the $100 mark the $120 and $150 naker might not be that far away.
