Good morning Stoolville. I'm feeling better today - ready to trade and argue some more.
Brian - my argument is probably full of many holes since it is part emotion part engineering part business but I still contend that oil at current levels would be resulting in $3-4.00 a gallon gas (maybe higher) if gas prices hadn't been manipulated over the past several months so that the shrub would get re-elected. And the people speak unleaded - it is the one language Americans understand.
Thus the premise that oil can go up much higher and not kick in an automatic demand cycle downturn does not seem rational to me neither from a business, nor engineering, nor from an emotional sense.

Butter, your better with the details than me.
I just know that everyone could have voted
in the smallest amount of time if paper ballots
were used and run through a high speed scanner.
And the count would have been varifiable.
Long lines would have been non existant.
University students (who will live and pay the consequences
more than old farts like me) were funneled out.

of course. the programmer needed time to calculate the number of provisional and absentee ballots, to be sure the one out of three formula would do the job

Frankly I have little interest in other paper currencies, though the euro is a little more conservatively managed than the dollar.
I'm hedged into 'anti-dollars' (gold, silver, commodities) which rise in proportion to the dollar's fall.
