So oil went up then down then up then down, nothing else
I buy regularly has gotten any cheaper only more and
more expensive or the price has stayed flat. So where
is this good news? Generally doesnt an news item have to be either tragic or bizzare or sensational to get MSM
coverage (Fox included)? Arent most of these whack jobs sitting in hair and make-up most of the day any way,
and only news junkies and geeks read papers. And the
rest are working their butts off hoping their job wont get out scourced to India or China next!

Nothing has substantionally gotten and/or has stayed more expensive.

But, as the direct consequence of the Fed's deliberately-inflationary increasing of the money supply, the value [IE the purchasing power] of the US Dollar has halved since January 2001.

Two December 2005 US Dollars are required to buy what One December 2000 Dollar would buy.
