Not to be insulting, but of what concern should it be to anyone,
especially those who are not Americans, how I spend my US dollars?
Gas, booze, women (OK just my wife and daughter), food, toys, or
whatever the hell else I want to spend it on? I really could not
care less what any other nationality thinks of my spending or living
habits. Other countries are free to do whatever their citizens let
them do (which mostly seems to be to tax the hell out of things that
are necessary or pleasurable), and if the USA offers vehicles and
gas at whatever prices, I will make my choices accordingly. If the
representatives of the people choose to do things that are not to
our collective (or at least a majority of voters and the courts)
desire then we will deal with that.
Now, if those external individuals and countries decide to do things
that are not in "our" interest, then "we" need to figure out what to
do about that and act accordingly. In our locality, and I think
that of our northern neighbors, the markets are awash in oil and
gas, and from what I can learn, that can go on for quite some time
(decades) before there is a shortage driving prices to $150. Once
again, technology and some smart people have changed the world, and
new ways of thinking need to deal with that. If I was a Saudi or a
Russian I would be very concerned these days.
Spoken like a true blue Texan through and through.
You sure you are not still a Texan?
