On Tuesday I asked if you're going to be a citizen or a subject of this nation.  We're still citizens, for now.  But as our economy continues to stagger along, as more and more people find themselves struggling financially, they cry for leadership will grow ever louder.  We don't have any right now.  Our president is off planning basketball games at the White House and hitting golf balls while the middle east implodes and oil prices skyrocket and our own oil fields sit largely idled by ridiculous EPA regulations and endless attacks from the enviro-nazi crowd.   While we dive deeper into the financial slave camp being created by the commodity speculators, is anyone with any level of stroke paying attention?

Rex Tillerson is the CEO of Exxon.  He also happens to be a native of Wichita Falls.  He doesn't think our economy is being hurt by high fuel prices--yet.  I contend that the run up in prices in 2008 had more to do with the collapse of our economy than the housing market.  Everything we do, sell, buy, trade, barter, move, transport....you name it, we MUST have fuel to do it.  The more it costs, the less you and I can buy and, well, you know the rest.  Here's Rex Tillerson, in his own words, in an AP article posted today.
