    People will continue to think that they are in a recession because of oil speculation and the attendant rise in costs of everything else (like food).

    More appropriately, liberals will continue to claim that we are in a recession, and people will continue to believe them, because they're still paying more for everything.

    I saw a study that said many people believe Bush is responsible for high gas prices. Right, Bush is responsible for Chinese and Indian economic growth, Bush created the oil cartel, Bush prohibited off-shore and alaska drilling, Bush told everyone to go out and buy SUV gas hogs. The lib media brainwashing machine has done its work well.

    brainwashing machine...ah the irony.

    Only the right could put a spin on a spin and get people to believe it...all the while accusing others of "brainwashing". If it weren't so damaging it would be hilarious...

    The reason we're in a recession, heading for a 1930's style depression is because of the enormous amount of money BigOil robbed from public treasury to fund its hostile corporate takeover of its favorite monopolized resource in the Middle East...Oil...

    Then they've circulated rumors of "sudden" increases in oil use in China and India...sudden eh? Wow, that was quick. And convenient to explain why now they're price-fixing at the pumps..

    BigOil wants us to believe it has no choice but to rob our treasury of money to steal resources from sovreign nations like Iraq, under false pretenses of WOMDs. BigOil wants us to believe it has no choice [China and India] for subsequent further price increases and gouging at the pumps..

    BigOil wants us to believe that site-specific alternative energy to oil is "silly" "unworkable" and "irresponsible" so it can continue to tighten the yoke it has around our necks. BigOil throws around talk of nuclear energy to scare us back into our holding pens of dependance on fossil fuels and to lay down our "silly notions" of alternative options of getting energy to our cars and homes and factories..

    BigOil is directly responsible for our recession. They are guilty of placing our nation squarely in a vulnerable position in world standing. They've ruined the dollar and now have us like sitting ducks, in pursuit of their interests alone..our military stetched thin...speaking of China...

    If you or I did what BigOil has done to our nation, we'd be in Gitmo awaiting trial. Instead, their CEOs are reclining on their yachts, sipping mint juleps and planning the next "crises" to justify soaking us at the pumps..

    They will go down in history as "The Men Who Sold America Out By The Barrel".

    Uh, before you go into hyper-rant mode, did you read what I said? Economists say there is no recession. And you charge "spin"? :D

    Robbed? Robbed? How did they pull this off - a midnight attack on a federal reserve bank? :p

    Riiiiiiiiiight, the titanic increase in Chinese and indian energy use is a "rumor". Fess up - are you really a conservative trying to make libs look ridiculous?

    Uh, BigOil only got subsidies because they were voted by the BigCongress. ;)

    Yeah, any level headed person can see that you can produce trillions of mega-watts with windmills, burning food for energy, and chipmunks running in cages - HEE HEE HAR HAR!

    OH OH - I sense another looney rant coming ..............

    Right, oil executives drink "mint juleps" - you're mangling your sterotypes. :D

    I hear that Warren Buffet guy knows a thing or to about the Economy, and he has been saying we are in Recession and its getting worse. You can call it what ever you want, fact is the Econ sucks, and people are hurting alot right now all over the place. If Republicans want to run on, the economy is not that bad as a message...fine let them lose ...and big .

    Clue for the day for you:

    Conservatives don't much give a sh__ any more about the republican party. Let the people vote in all the leftwing crazies they want. Real conservatives will just figure out how to cash in on any left lunacy. The people will get what they deserve - the great thing about a democracy.

    lol.... so if someone says it's a recession, then it must be so, because someone said it's a recession... the circular logic is great in liberal land.

    Uh.. hello... a recession is when there is negative growth for TWO consecutive quarters. It's a mathematical equation. It's not some random label that can be slapped on whatever situation you choose to stick it too.

    Fact: we have not had a single, let alone 2, negative growth quarter yet.

    Further, people are always hurting a lot right now. I just varies how much the media chooses to cover it. In 2000, the media ignored the economy and almost no one knew we were in a recession for most of the year.

    Funny how the facts change based on who's in power, and opinion. But of course, no one in liberal land uses logic or facts, because they'll lose. Which is why they go based on opinion and perception.

    Just look at the oil issue. I asked a simple question, and not one single stinking liberal can give me a straight answer to how their plan to deal with oil prices, will actually help. Not even one came close!

    Which of course is the point. Their plans don't help. Not on the economy, the oil prices, the war, nothing. How anyone can be a liberal is beyond me unless they're all brain dead.

    Your post is as looney and fruity as it gets. All you do is invent fantastical grand conspiracies, that have nothing to do with reality. You fearmonger, and try and scare everyone to support dubious leftist proposals that do nothing. "Lions, tigers and oil barrels oh my!" Why don't you just click your heals together and say "There's nothing like Socialism! There's nothing like Socialism!"

    It's amazing how other countries support their energy industry and grow economically... while we attack ours, and then claim it's their fault our economy is crashing. Does anyone around here think?
