Then why dont we do something? We as the people do something. The CEOs of the gas com. are making billions.....lets stop buying there gas....or demand they take major pay cuts!!! Lets say they make 100 Billion a year (Gas Mongals) I/we know they make waaaay more. lets demand they cut their salary in half.... 50 Billion is still a nice chunk of change. Then use that pay cut to knock some of the price of gas for us.
They would still be able to roll their bodys in loads of cash and we can have cheaper gas....hell Id be happy if it was $2.00 a gallon again.
The point is WE can do something.....I know it would be hard to up and stop buying gas...but lets all put our heads together and do something.
Heres an old saying that I think we should all live by....
"The people should not fear the govt....The Govt should fear the people"
We have more power than we know to sit here and take this any longer.....we have more power than we know to let this Govt walk over us with a war that will never end....

You are right that the war will never end because we aren't fighting a 'war'. In a war, we would have flattened the place and picked up the pieces later. Remember, the oil companies only get $.09 GROSS profit, not NET, per gallon. The government gets $.54 per gallon in tax revenue. Cut some government programs like Social Security, Medicare, Prescription Drug Coverage, etc. and they wouldn't need $.54 per gallon. I like the idea of the oil execs making the profit more than the government. The execs actually take the profits and re-invest in the economy and/or create new jobs. Who do you want to be more powerful, the private sector (oil execs) or the government? I'll take the private sector all day!

I'm stationed overseas, which sucks in itself. But when I got a chance to speak to my wife she told me I-10 El Paso region was barricaded by a large group of trucks, semis.
I won't pretend to understand what's behind the strike, but I think that's the wrong way to go about it.
The WalMart nearby had to be shut down and she's worried about running out of the specific brand of formula our 3 month old needs.
