The obama regime jimmmied the unemployment rate and gave us a bogus figure. But there is no way the obama regime can manipulate the price of gasoline at the pumps. The price per gallon of gasoline remains extremely high as obama contines to support funding a bankrupt green technology sector.
(CNBC) Retail gasoline prices, already at the highest levels on average since July 2008, are likely to continue to climb this month as refinery and pipeline problems overshadow weakness in U.S. consumer demand. The national average for regular unleaded is now at $3.79 a gallon, basically on par with where pump prices were last Friday. The cash market for gasoline — which sets the price for retail gasoline prices that consumers pay — in California soared $1.15 cents in 9 days to $4.24 a gallon on Thursday. In other states, such as Mississippi, the statewide average is $3.52. Here in New York, gasoline averages at $4.13 per gallon. California tops the list with an average of $4.49 per gallon. Historically weak demand is the main theme for gasoline prices at the end of the year. The final three months of the year are the lowest for gasoline demand and prices come off, says CNBC contributor and trader Anthony Grisanti of GRZ Energy. “But we could be paying the highest gasoline price for the fourth quarter than we’ve ever paid before.”
Buster finding out about the fake unemployment figures. Really not so much fake as they now count part time jobs as full employment.

A leftist is someone who believes that trickle-down economics doesn’t work when you lower taxes for successful small business owners and entrepreneurs…
…but it does when you spend money through inefficient government agencies.
It’s just nonsense. It’s not about economic reasoning or consistent principles. It’s about emotional narratives and screwing “the rich man”.

Back on form: Obama was at his oratory best today in Fairfax, Virginia . . . with the help of two teleprompters
(CNSNews.com) – One day after Libya’s top lawmaker appeared to back down – under criticism from fundamentalists – over the need for a secular state, the country’s prime minister-elect on Wednesday submitted a cabinet that does not include a single member of the country’s pro-Western liberal coalition.
Also on Wednesday, Libya’s central bank governor confirmed plans to push for a shari’a-compliant banking system. Reuters quoted Saddek Elkaber as saying on the sidelines of a banking meeting in Kuwait that demand for the changes was so high he hoped the new rules would be in place by the end of this year.
Together, the developments add new concerns to those voiced over the months since the overthrow of the Gadaffi dictatorship about the future direction the North African country may take – concerns dramatically underscored by the deadly September 11 assault on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.
Early this week the speaker of the GNC, Mohammed Magarief, provoked a storm with comments, given in a newspaper interview on the sidelines of the U.N. General Assembly in New York, reiterating his view that Libya should be a secular state.
Asked about the role of shari’a in the new constitution being drafted for Libya, he told the London-based, pan-Arabic Al Hayat newspaper that the state should be secular, but added as well that its laws should not clash with Islam.
The first part of that answer angered Islamists at home, with Muslim Brotherhood lawmakers walking out of parliament in protest on Tuesday. Hours later Magarief offered a televised apology, saying it would be up to the people of Libya to decide on the constitution.
He did add, however, that “it is obvious that our reality has no room for secularism or theocracy,” the Libya Herald reported.
The Obama administration last year played down concerns about shari’a forming the basis of new constitutions in Libya and other “Arab spring” countries, with State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland stating that the term shari’a “has a broad application and is understood differently in different places and by different commentators.”
In less than three decades, the Great Barrier Reef, considered one of the seven natural wonders of the world, has lost half of its coral cover. Experts attribute the losses largely to tropical cyclones and outbreaks of coral-eating crown-of-thorns starfish. Coral bleaching due to ocean warming also played a role, though a relatively minor one. Given some time, damaged reefs can generally recover, but current intervals between these disturbances are too brief to allow for meaningful recovery, resulting in long-term losses.
Saudi Arabia is the largest funder of terrorism in the world. How many Saudi Riyals would they commit to keep Barack Obama in office? How many Egyptian pounds will the Muslim Brotherhood give back from the billions we give them, to keep Obama in office? How will the Federal Election Commission know what is fraudulent and what is not? They did, after all, allow a Guyana-Born naturalized American to file to run for the Presidency, forcing us to fund a defense of Natural-born status. Here’s the latest on Abdel Hassan. Is Hassan a Muslim? Yes he is. I don’t think Saudis wants a nuclear Iran with mentally deranged Ayatollahs in charge, but neither do they want another George W. Bush or Mitt Romney in the Oval Office.
According to the sources, a taxpayer watchdog group conducted a nine-month investigation into presidential and congressional fundraising and has uncovered thousands of cases of credit card solicitations and donations to Obama and Capitol Hill, allegedly from unsecure accounts, and many from overseas. That might be a violation of federal election laws. Get the details at Libertarian Republican
It’s okay be Americans of Arab descent, or American Muslims who donate to Obama, but it isn’t okay to do so fraudulently from any place in the world, including from inside the U.S. Has that happened? I have no doubt that it has and is. Our government offices are out-of-control and baldly Liberal-leaning. Our government has no shame and I’m sick of it, and sick of paying for it, both through my tax dolars and the demise of my country.
