My good friend David 2 and I have a few things in common. For instance, we're both long-time fans of Playboy magazine and (especially) the Playmates (in fact, that's how we met - on a still-ongoing Internet forum about Playboy). But one thing David *does* notice better than I do is patterns, especially when it comes to the rise and fall of gas prices.
Ever notice how gas prices seem to spike when there's some sort of "crisis" going on, for instance? David lays it all out for you in this week's BRUTALLY HONEST commentary: http://brutallyhonestcolumn.blogspot.com/2014/07/week-of-07142014.html
As always, your thoughts and opinions are welcome, either here or on David's page.
David hit tht one on the head, and especially about gas pricing. It's all a game they play, and it's predictible. When I was a kid the 1950's Superman program had a show about a contractor who used cheaper materials in building his bridge and he then put the rest of the money in his bank account. At the end of the show he went to prison. Today we just call that a part of life and they get away with it. I agree with David. It is racketeering.
Not only that Michael, Citigroup today agreed to pay a $7B fine for their part in the mortgage crisis. Just $7 BILLION!! And NO ONE is going to be going to jail for it!!
Both David and I have been screaming about this for some time: WHERE ARE THE PERP WALKS?
