the price of threatening iran

others have said it before, but it's worth saying again: if you really want to do something concrete to stop the rising price of oil, stop threatening to attack iran. there's already a premium on the price of oil just based on the fear that israel or the u.s. will attack that country. the fact that israel was practicing a long distance bombing last week helped push the price up to a new record.

any politician who really gives a shit about the people who can't afford to drive to work anymore should stop being so irresponsible.
