You think, "I can afford to pay more at each fill up, so who cares?" You haven't considered the massive inflation that will result as the price of everything you and everyone else buys skyrockets. Every single thing you own was transported on a truck, ship, rail car, or pipeline, and higher transportation costs equal higher prices for everything. Compound that with the fact that everything MADE from oil and gas gets dramatically more expensive. Do you use plastic? Do you buy tires? Do you use things made out of steel? (We use coke...coal, to make steel.) The cost of that stuff gets a double whammy increase, first because of the huge increase in raw material cost, then the increased transport costs.

If you'll recall, it was $ 5/gal diesel that was a large part of crashing the economy in 2008. Why do you think it was so important for the US to be energy independent? Low and stable energy prices are necessary for an economy to flourish.


Edit: As I recall, one of our members works for an aluminum company that operates smelters. Plants had to be closed when the price of natural gas skyrocketed. People lost their jobs. Tax revenue evaporated. High energy prices have real world, negative consequences to lots of Americans.

He was elected today because the media says so? The Electoral College doesn't have any part in it now? When did that happen?

Keystone pipeline - WILL BE DEAD again
Chinese crap will flood our stores at even higher prices as punishment
Gas prices will skyrocket
Small businesses will vaporize or will be absorbed my larger corporations and give the illusion of being "mom and pop"
Hardcore lockdowns are coming for 18 more months
Hand guns will be a prime target
There will be a for sale sign on the front yard of America within 2 years and China will be our new owner. Unless the Saudis are willing to keep us off the market as their number one consumer of oil very soon.

I'll be fine. Probably make more money on our portfolio.

I feel truly sorry for steel workers, miners, energy workers, factory workers, tradesmen, etc.

Blue collar working stiffs in industries where either illegal immigrant labor or offshoring is a threat to their jobs, wages, etc. got a 4 year respite from being ground into dust. Looks like it's over. Ditto for the brief improvement in the Opiod epidemic, which is tied to that. Suppressed wages, closed factories, drug abuse, suicide, crushing poverty, etc. are back on the menu. Manufacturing jobs declined every single year of Obama-Biden, even 2016. 2017 was the 1st year in decades that tradesmen in the building industry saw rising wages and job mobility (go read mid 2017 industry reports and scroll down to headwinds).

I voted Trump because I was voting for those people. They're going right back to getting ****ed.

Hey Nathan.
Are you gonna concede?
as i noted elsewhere, with all the uncertainty of recounts and lawsuits, i'm holding off declaring a winner of our little contest, and awarding the "bowl of uncertainty" until the final results are in from the Dec. 14 meeting of the Electoral College in the several state capitals. that will be the actual winner and final count, and i'll go off that.

My only liberal friend is deeply involved in the Keystone pipeline. This will be entertaining.

Attention all DEMOCRATS.

Your rioting, looting, and burning, will now be in celebration as opposed to protest. Pass it around.
