I hate the way the market works, they send gas prices soaring in case something happens and then we the regular everyday people suffer. Yesterday my mother spent $200 to get my step-father to training for his new job. They had to take him, we need that money. Now she’s looking at no gas for her to get to work and oh yeah, my 15 year old brother probably won’t get anything for his birthday on Friday. I’m hoping I can fix that but I also need money to get to school at the end of the month, I may just not be able to make it to some classes. Sad that I have to put food and gas before completing my education, but I know I’m not the only one.
I really think that the government should have stepped in and said “no you can not raise prices over a dollar based on a fear.” But no, they love it when stuff like this happens as Bush adds to his fortune and the rest of us suffer. Really he could give a rats butt about the country, as long as he gets his money. Its sad that many Americans feel this way. Personally I don’t think we are any safer now then we were before 9-11. Why? Well because all of our troops are somewhere else!
Now that we have this bank sell off and another filing bankruptcy, what is going to happen, this didn’t just effect the US it effected the entire world economy. Times are different now and we need to come up with new ways to fix things, not the same old lets give the rich tax breaks and hope they start business, or the lets ignore it and it will go away deal either.
I think eventually we will get though this, but it will be a hard long road that involves getting out of this war and spending all that money here at home. Not in other countries and on other people, but here. It’s nice we help out others, but do we really need to do it at our countries citizens expense?
