Obama is a bull: a whole lot of pawing and snorting; a big show but no action.

Gasoline prices, wow! Why don't we exploit our own oil instead of relying on those price-mongers from the Far East? And the oil companies are the ones who set the price. It's about time to break up the monopolies.

It's also time to break up the pharmaceutical companies. They are way out of line when you have to pay $200 for 30 pills. Most people who need them can't afford them. They have to go through mail order from Canada or wherever!.

As for illegal immigrants, I have a solution: Buy them a road map and mark the way south. They seem to have their directions mixed up. Show them how the road doesn't only run one way.

As for guns, they can't pull the trigger by themselves. Let's make it a law that if a gun is used in a felony, give them the gas chamber — and not 20 years down the road, right now!

    Leticia Frutos: You make it sound that if all the irrational people left the country it would be a free country. If all the irrational people left, would there be anyone left? As far as immigrants are concerned, this country is having a hard time getting anyone to work the land since the economy in Mexico is getting better, getting across the border is difficult. Do you think for a minute you could get the average poor white boy or a tweeker to work the fields. I don`t think so either. The farm labor contractor are in a bind to get people to harvest the crops that will be picked later this year. Why should a white boy work when Obama will take care of him and all the other lazy azz`s. BTW, I am and old white and have paid my dues, and see this country on the verge of bankrupty, thanks to t he people that voted for Barry, I mean Obama.

    This country is going downhill because of irrational people like the one writing this article, not because of immigrants! immigrants have ALWAYS been a huge part of this nation. And by the way, where are your ancestors from? Just curious.
    Your other 2 points were completely dismiss just by your ignorant comment about immigration. What a shame that there is still people like you in this FREE country.

    And in this free market multi-national corporations, even those that are based in the US, will sell their oil & refined gas at the highest price the world market can deliver, no matter where it is sourced: US, Iraq, Canada, etc. They will not give American consumers a discount. They could probably be sued by their shareholders if they did.

    It's called the "free market".
