Gas prices are down.....

When you see the whacked out body builders breaking 12 layers of bricks this isn't their first day. In fact if you went to a stack of bricks and came down on it with all your weight you would break whatever appendage you decided to sacrifice. To learn the secret you need to watch how some asian kick boxers train. You will see them taking their legs to bamboo over and over. The purpose is to actually fracture the bone. small fractures will heal over and create a calcium layer. You do this like a billion (exaggerated) times untill your bones harden in to basically a rock. Ok the title said gas prices whats this brick breaking crap all about? The oil company is doing the same thing. We went from a 1.29 to like 2.20, everyone was up in arms so the oil guys drop the price to 1.99 and the people rejoice. A little time passes and they push the prices to 2.80 people are up in arms. the gas prices drop to 2.50 and the people are happy. Recently 3.09 and now down to 2.89. people are so predictable.... I may seem like an idiot but I watch and forecasters predict an oil crash. The oil guys predict this crash so their goal is to squeeze as much money out of the people in the shortest time prior to this crash. The oil execs probably have very little tied up in company stock, in fact in preparation they are probably putting their cash in corn. Here is my prediction of events within 2 years.

- Gas prices will top $5/gal
- this price point will cause major losses in consumption.
- the oil industry crashes
- the government takes over the broken oil industry
- The new federalized oil industry gets gas back at around $1.50/gal
- Who ever is president will get and take full credit for fixing the broken oil industry
- This will happen weather dem or gop and the credit will be undeserved as it was going to happen.
- Whoever the president is will get 4 more years.

Lets watch and see.....

You Racist

The sad desperate plea of a loosing cause. If I want to bring you down I dont need any facts or truth I just need to push certain buttons. I can say John likes to kick small animals. Paul was laughing at the dog fights so he supports organized animal abuse. Currently we sit on day 3 of Arizona's new employer sanctions act and for the last 3 days I have seen Arizonans made out to be clans men. The Business community say's this is a shotgun approach to fixing a problem, I say have you ever taken down an elephant with a BB gun? My general thought is if you shoot a shotgun at an elephant it will likely get pissed off and kill you but you get a whole bunch of people shooting a shotgun at an elephant it will be scared off. The people who support the illegal presence in our country do not have a valid argument so they resort to calling names. In a politically correct world no one wants to be seen as a racist so that is a good word. They want to make this a race war. Guess what ITS NOT. The majority of illegals in our state are Mexican because we are a border state. I am sure there are allot of Canadians in northern states. If your white yellow black brown purple and don't have papers GO HOME! The next argument is we have been here 15 years where should we go home to? Well you should have thought of the consequences before committing the crime if you are the children of someone who committed the crime well maybe you should jump on your parents. You do not belong here. OK but lets offer a path to citizenship. Heres a path GO HOME FOLLOW THE RULES! but they have already been here for x years. Well just because a murder was committed 10 years ago we don't forget it happened! OK OK apples and oranges illegal immigration isn't murder and most crimes have a statute of limitations. Ok so what is the statute of limitations for the crime of being in the US illegally. 1,2,5,10 years? Awesome. we will take the small number. 1 year from the last day the crime was committed, note still here still committing the crime, we will not prosecute and you can get in line and go the legal route after the 1 year term. Seriously people say going the legal route is to slow. Well maybe if so many weren't poring over illegally we could raise the entrance quota. The steps to fixing the immigration issue is secure the border with military and a 5 mile buffer zone. then deport, deport, deport, once we get a handle on it and clear out the illegal population we start funneling in the folks in line who will fill the vacuum created by the deportation.

New Todd Agnew Song That Really Touched Me

Pretty blue eyes and curly brown hair and a clear complexion
Is how you see Him as He dies for Your sins
But the Word says He was battered and scarred
Or did you miss that part
Sometimes I doubt we'd recognize Him

Cause my Jesus bled and died
He spent His time with thieves and the least of these
He loved the poor and accosted the comfortable
So which one do you want to be?

Cause my Jesus would never be accepted in my church
The blood and dirt on His feet would stain the carpet
But He reaches for the hurting and despised the proud
I think He'd prefer Beale St. to the stained glass crowd
And I know that He can hear me if I cry out loud

I want to be like my Jesus!
I want to be like my Jesus!

Global Warming myth

A friend named chris asked my stance on global warming......

Let's say I believe the global warming myth, the government is the wrong group to fix it. Check it out everywhere the President goes he rides in a motorcade of 12 armoured suburban that get like 2 gallons to the mile so if he tells me to go green I am going to say suck it. I think the oil companies are actually leading the movement. Most people don't care about the environment, however they do care about there wallets. The oil companies jacking fuel up to $5.00 a gallon will inspire way more alternative fuel vehicle purchases than any figure head. Al gore travels preaching impending doom dude travels 5 days a week on a private jet think he could save the ozone by staying home and shutting up. I think we need a curve in the way we do energy but it wont come from a government and no one thing will fix it. Frankly the Iraq war is about oil because no oil no country and until oil is more expensive than gold I don't see the wars ending because we need the oil and need to keep those who threaten it at bay. Maybe by 2016 oil wont be an issue but according to some nuts we will all be dead by then anyhow...

Mexican Martin Luther King

So today a gentleman named Raza is leading a civil rights march for Mexicans. Do Mexicans deserve American rights? I am not talking about Hispanics or people who were born here or went through proper channels to get here those are Americans, Americans all have the same rights but those rights are for those who are legal to be here. If you are here without proper entry or on an expired visa you don't get rights. If you are Mexican, Haitian, French, Cuban, German WHATEVER you get the rights afforded to you in your country not here. This Raza guy thinks he is a Martin Luther King of sorts. Seriously is that the path to citizenship you want? The Civil rights marches of the past which gave blacks the rights they have now were for rights they deserve because they were American. They had a rough road and their ancestors didn't necessarily want to come to this country but through Slavery they definitely earned their place. Ok so we can use that as a path to citizenship. Lets hunt down some slave accounts, these of course wont be 100% accurate as literacy was discouraged among slaves. So we shall find the worst accounts and double their severity for accuracy. You want in your family can endure that path for a few hundred years then you can march. There is a path,If you think its broken fix it but don't bypass it. Some general rules learn basic civics, speak English. I would imagine this is appropriate for all countries. If I wanted to be a German citizen I should probably speak German regardless of the fact most of them speak English. A good chunk of the world speaks some form of English as a second language but you should be able to speak the native language of the land you live in.

There is no racism, no racial profiling. Your American or your not. Your legal or your not. I think that police should ask everyone red yellow black or white if they belong here. I also think if you stand out on a public right of way with a sign that says "I am Illegal" that is probable cause for the police to stop and have a chat. I think there should be two paths to citizenship.

1. Serve in the military for 2 years and learn the above mentioned basics.
2. If those in the front of the line trying to do it the right way wish they can be bumped up to come in and do the jobs that are opening up by removing the illegals. I am for swapping. Lets kick out 300,000 at a shot and let 300,000 in from the legal route.

You can have earth

Just came across google mars. I cant seem to find driving directions...

Candidate Match Game

So I took the quiz at and above is the results according to them...

James for president 2016

My Personal stances and explanation where needed

Iraq War:For
Yes we had to get rid of sadam, no there was no wmd's, yes it is about oil and if you wanna see our economy crash remove oil from it. Weather you like it or not in America oil makes the world go round. This may not be the case in the future but it is now so suck it up we need oil or nothing happens.

Abortion: Against
Once the heart starts stopping another human stopping it is murder. Abortion is not a valid method of birth control.

ACLU: Against

Affirmative Action: Against

Walmart: For

Gay Marriage: For
Divorce rates are un-real and marriage is a government institution. I think if a church wants to say no to gay marriage I support that. But in a world where people get married for taxes, citizenship and other legal reasons, and in a country where the government can say yay or nay on a marriage it is no longer a religious institution. There are two parts of marriage the legal and the church. I think if the church wants to say nay fine but the legal half should be ok.

Gun Laws: Against
Laws only keep honest people honest. Gun laws prevent law abiding citizens from having guns, criminals don't care. In a world where only the bad guys have guns is a bad world.

Holocaust: Happened

Cuba: Get Over it
If we can trade with Iran and China we can trade with Cuba, the cold war is over get over it.

UN: Against

PETA: Against

Education: For
I think if we ripped the money away from the war on drugs and dumped it in to education we wouldn't need a war on drugs.

Guantanimo Bay: For

Flat Tax: For

Universal Health Care: For

Illegals: Against.
I think we need to do two things. Make the correct path easier and deny citizenship to those who bypass it. We also need to help Mexico improve from being a 3rd world nation this would prevent the flood in the first place.

AIDS: Mixed
Again if money was spent on education in general this wouldn't be as big of a problem. I think we need to force the hands of drug companies to truly work on a cure. There is no money in a cure but there is billions in research and treatment. I wonder how many cures have been buried to allow this cash cow to remain.

Stem Cell Research: Mixed
Back to the abortion topic if a heart starts and a human stops it it is murder. If however the progression doesn't reach that point (not by preventing it) then its OK. If they can get stem cells prior to that point what is the difference between a guy releasing in to a sock and that.. A Monty Python skit comes to mind..

I am sure there is more feel free to ask...
