I believe our president is, as he has declared:

Financial system is ‘basically sound’

Um, WTF? I have countless foreclosures in my neighborhood alone that point to a different picture.

Further, on the lifitng of the ban on offshore drilling he said, “I readily concede it won’t produce a barrel of oil tomorrow, but it will reverse the psychology,”  Ok – so let’s screw up our environment more and allow oil companies (paragons of virtue) to drill off our shores.  Why you ask?  To reverse the psychology.  It won’t bring down oil prices b/c it’ll be 10 years before any of the oil from that actually makes its way to our cars.  Hopefully by that time, we can come up with alternative fuel sources and not need any of it!! Living in Miami – boy I can’t wait to go to the beach and look out at the beautiful oil rigs destroying the ecosystem!
