ace wants us all to buy heavy metal cadmium batteries and unproven for long term solar panels. If they were "all that", we'd already have them installed. We do not. Because they are not. All that.

Obama added his first trillion to the debt within months of taking office and in his five ears in office has added roughly 7 trillion to the national debt without the benefit of a budget for most of those years even with total Congressional backing the firs two years. That Democratic Congress also added over two trillion during Bush's last two years. Since the 2006 election when the Democrats gained control the national debt has added 9 trillion to the point that it has exceeded 17.5 trillion as of today. What would it have been if the Republicans hadn't tried to stand in the way? Some say obstructionist, some say doing what they were elected to do.

acengineer - I'm asking if you were just being snarky with your response to JoshBrown's affinity for solar panels having a 10 year ROI. Some information I've read has explained that they have an approximate 10 year life expectancy. By the time they've paid for themselves, they'd be do for replacement.

THAT is one motive for Obama to shutdown the coal-fired power plants, rid America of cheap electricity to substantiate solar panel investment.

JoshBrown - I'd be interested in reading from any authoritative source you can post here that supports your claim of, "You do known that China owns most of the oil companies in Canada right ?"

Thank You in advance for any VALID response.

Joshbrown, maybe you were right with whine?

You can get a decent solar panel installation for your house for around $10K with a ROI in about 10 years or so. Add some storage and you won't have to worry about power outages.

If you want to bash Obama for everything, let’s look at some real numbers. Bush increased the national debt %86 after Clinton. Obama has increased it %45. In fact, the upward trend began with Ronald Reagan’s fiscal 1982 budget, declined somewhat from fiscal 1997 through 2001(Clinton), and resumed the upward climb with George W. Bush’s first budget in fiscal 2002 (which started Oct. 1, 2001). The economic stimulus and other Obama policies account for just under $1 trillion of the debt added since he took office, while Bush added $5.1 trillion in his eight years — mostly due to tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Those are real facts...not just something pulled out of my ***.

M-popn - Your Government selling privilege to some people, and punishing others (permits that get put on hold, taxes, regulations out the wazzzooo, harassment, and bribes and ransom to Senators and Congressmen - both R & Ds!) is responsible for high gasoline prices. Try to open a refinery. Try to drill for oil. Try to open a gas station. The Federal and State EPA will be on your door with red tape and fees, fees, fees to pay up front.... Free enterprise? No. We have a plunder and pay to play system... fascist at best.

The funny part of gasoline tax is that it goes to the government(state and local). BUT they don't care how high prices goes, which is ridiculous.

If gasoline is $2 a gallon gasoline tax is appx 40 cents. If gasoline is $4, tax is still the same.

I would buy more gallons at 2 bucks thus giving the tax collectors more money.

So why doesn't government do something to hold prices down?

Random21 is right. It is gonne get even more expensive to recharge batteries when the cheap coal fired power plants are shut down and the price increases due to demand.. I didn't want to bring that one up. Wanted to see when some of these liberals on here would figger that out but what do I know? There is nothing wrong with what Rush says. Can you tell me why the African americans yearly mean wages have decreased while he is in office. By comparison, Asian americans have increased..

I posted that article to show, it was not regulation that shut down teapot refineries, it was cost effectiveness, and psst, the oil companies created an artificial choke point, soooo, gas can go up 20-25¢/gal., in a day and not really need a reason to do so.

C'mon, the same oil was in the tanker, barge, pipeline yesterday, but today it has a different additive, costing us more....mmm, humm.

RANDOM21 Wow I love your propaganda and ranting but it's a bit much.But I will list whats wrong with your rant : "That would be one long extension cord for some drivers" The new models run up to 235 miles on one charge , "Tesla humming down the highway with toxic fumes coming from the burning batteries" There are NO toxic fumes from the batteries,"For those that don't have $20,000 for toxic solar panels" Two Solar panels for your home cost under $500-$700 dollars and make NO Toxins, and the rest of of your rant I will leave between you and your physiologist. Also great news for those that can't afford the Tesla right now they will be coming out with new models under the $35K mark that will get even better millage than 235 per charge in 2016.

Josh: That would be one long extension cord for some drivers. If you are talking batteries there seems to be a problem with some catching fire. Love to see your $100,000 Tesla humming down the highway with toxic fumes coming from the burning batteries. For those that don't have $20,000 for toxic solar panels, how do we recharge with all the coal fired plants shutting down? Aren't states placing tax surcharges on electric cars to cover lost gasoline tax revenue. Try to solve a problem and create five worse ones. Ain't green liberals short sighted in their quest to kill carbon fuels. Tell me more how things will be in 50-100 years, then tell me what the chance of rain will be next Tuesday or what stocks to buy after today's shellacking. Sorry, I just can't believe in your religion of MM climate change, or the man made theories supporting it.

Marietta has a local tax on gasoline in addition to the state tax. I think it's 20 cents per gallon and it's supposed to pay for street repairs. Would be interesting to follow this money to see if it really does go into the streets fund or if it gets appropriated for something else along the way.

When Obama took office, gasoline prices were $1.86 a gallon. And, remember how the media blamed Bush and Cheney almost daily for those high prices? It was all Bush's fault for being an "oil" man! Now, suddenly, under Obama, it's a market driven pricing? Give me a break! It's now Obama's AND the democrats fault!! I agree with what you said Lizard so I copied it.. It makes it WORSE that Obama cannot solve a f@cking problem like this after 6 YEARS but chooses to pass the buck !!!

Just for a little comparison on the debt, the total debt of the United States did not exceed $6.666 trillion until July 2003. In the little more than five years of the Obama presidency, the U.S. has accumulated as much new debt as it did in it’s first 227 years.

ea333555, seems you forgot to add how much Obama has added to the national debt. When President Obama was first inaugurated on Jan. 20, 2009, the debt of the U.S. government was $10,626,877,048,913.08, according to the Treasury Department’s Bureau of the Public Debt. As of Jan. 31, 2014, the latest day reported, the debt was $17,293,019,654,983.61—an increase of $6,666,142,606,070.53 since Obama’s first inauguration. Since you are bashing the debt increasers, I would suggest you bash Obama as well
