Is it because Obama wants our guns? So he's raising the price of milk. Illuminate terrorist... Just last week he showed up at my house and took my home defense weapon and charged me $20 for my neighbor losing his job.

Interesting you should say that so sarcastically. Him taking your guns is coming but you already pay for your neighbor losing their job. And I should add that Obama is not entirely responsible for the price of milk.

I should also add that I am living in Ohio for university due to my mother being transferred here through her work. I am a Canadian citizen, I realize Obama is not responsible for the price of milk, but I also have no issues paying an extra bit of money each year in taxes to help out my fellow human. If life **** on me I'd like to have support. If my neighbor lost his job and asked me for $20 I'd help him.

I'm not saying that people should be able to be on welfare for ungodly amounts of time or without rightful reasoning, there is nothing wrong (obviously in my opinion) with welfare, universal healthcare or government regulation in markets. Although I do agree with him concepts I feel like Obama & the current US government is actually on them wrong & thus creating problems. The biggest issue I see is this country is currently in a **** ton of debt, has troops overseas etc. but to many people are to concerned with petty bullshit issues like gay marriage or to stupid to realize they should be caring about more important things.

1) I'm not trying to insult america in any way so please nobody take it as such.
2) If someone could please explain to me how gay marriage is an issue that'd be great. Still unsure how giving a group of people a right is an issue in the land of the free.

good thing Obama lost so we could get rid of that $10 gasoline and finally start to produce some natural gas in this country.

gotta get me some more of that gold before the economy collapses and the Obama zombies try to steal my goats. Could cause the price to go up.

Are you sure Obama isn't entirely responsible for the price of milk? I'm pretty sure that's one of the powers reserved for the executive branch.

I know you mean this as a joke but the government is responsible for an increase in the price of milk.

If you really want to make a point about government regulation and the effects it has on an industry, look at marijuana. They've regulated it so aggressively that prices are outrageous. Now tell me how increasing the supply, reducing the risk, and eliminating many middlemen has resulted in over 100% increase in prices?

Edit: They also reduced the potency of what's allowed to be sold.

Are you asking me a question or just being rhetorical?

It's rhetorical, I answered the question before I asked it. Government regulation is what has caused a doubling of price. Its a simple industry(grow plant, process plant, sell plant, profit) that has been hijacked by the regulations. Did you know, you must purchase a banker style bag in order to buy recreational marijuana because they don't want people leaving the store with paper bags full of weed? I could name many more examples of how politicians have ruined legalized weed but you get the point.

It's nearly $100k when you take away two doors and slap a Cadillac badge on it.

Meh. I should step up my game, but I really feel sorry for the guy. He's obviously in a bad place right now, and I can relate.

I lost my license for 90 days (on points) once. Immobility sucks.
