    Default Wall Street's Driving Up Oil Prices

    Wall Street is driving up oil prices - Oil & energy- msnbc.com

    I'm tired of those folks. First they implode the whole US Economy.

    Then they give themselves huge bonuses at taxpayers expense.

    Now they're conspiring to bring Main Street to yet another scretching hault again. By killing off the recovery with higher oil prices.

    Personally, I think we should boot them all off of the island. They don't produce anything...they just take and take and take.

    The problem with Wall Street is that it's not really driven by supply and demand anymore. It's not a free market. It's a corrupt market. People have the manipulation down to a science. All they want to do is create bubbles so they can profit, then get out before it bursts. Meanwhile, the people suffer.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    We save Wall Street and its banksters and this is how we get repaid. Maybe if we stomp on them the reverse will be true.

    True. I'm so fed up with these people. Every time I feel like I work in a stupid industry, I remember that at least I actually MAKE something.

    Funny.

    I remember in my personal finance class, a financial adviser told us to invest in:

    -Oil
    -Health care
    -Pharmaceuticals
    -BRIC (Brazil, Russia, India, China)

    ... because "they're expected to for sure, show the safest, projected amount of growth." I wonder why they fair so well in comparison to the rest?

    Offshore drilling? Have gas prices gone down? Will they? Probably not. Not when they're making record profit trillions while troops die in the Middle East. When is enough, enough?

    Garbage we see/read from (for-profit) news corporations controlled by the very same group of elitist money grubbers.. and they 'tout' about how the rest of us are so lazy while playing golf, and creating loopholes in the system.
