    I just want the government to stay out of my life as much as possible if they’re not going to help the middle class.

    If the gov. Helps the middle class, for once, that would be something.

    How does that apply to the price of gasoline?

    That’s right, and they built their city vertically, not horizontally... Elevators are their cars.

    ...But when work is over, it’s a whole lot of people on the ground. :)

    It doesn’t. It applies to being parochial. But I would like to be self sufficient with Canada, and then put tariffs on OPEC oil.

    ...that would be the government helping the middle class.

    it doesn’t sound like the U.K. government looks out for it’s middle class that much either. But I could be wrong.

    I don't expect anyone to be like me.
    (It wouldn't be reasonable to expect such virtue,
    creativity, & dedication to green living as I have.)
    But I would expect that people would address the
    changing economics of driving each in one's own way.

    But hey, they said Trump was a fool when he wanted to bring manufacturing back to the U.S.

    ...They said the global economy would crash. All "doom and gloom"... Now unemployment is at at a 40 to 50 year low.

    It's all about making America great again. :)

    I want to be self sufficient in every way... Manufacturing, food, gas, everything. America the Great.

    I'm actually a poor gardener.
    My plants have a high death rate, especially with evergreens.
    They need some attention, but I am lazy.
    (My evergreens should post on RF if they want to see more of me, eh.)

    I was talking about ownership. If KSA was socialist the ownership wouldn't be in the Saud's hands. Heck there wouldn't even be a monarchy.

    But things have changed over there since Jerry's visits.

    The first picture is 1970's Afghanistan. The second is recent. It seems Wahabism has spread across the region.

    Oh yeah.. Faisel agonized over that and my neighbor Frank Jungers was with him. They said they would do this if Nixon bailed the Israelis out... and on the flip side Golde Meir threatened to bomb the Saudi oil fields if Nixon didn't bail them out.

    Fortunately, the SAG continued to supply our troops in Vietnam.

    Just remember that if the ppb goes too low, domestic producers go out of business.

    Afghanistan has been a complete mess since the Afghan communists overthrew the monarchy in 1974.
