We're easily conditioned

Among the weekend headlines was one that said Analyst: Gas may hit $2

Six months ago, woulda been a scary headline, provoking worry and anger. Now, it's good news, provoking relief.

We're easily conditioned.

You are correct; I paid $2.59 the other night and felt like I was getting some kind of deal

When are we going to learn...our politicians, the 'leaders' of our country have stuck their collective heads-in-the-sand and not dealt with a reasonable energy policy, because it was not the politically right thing to do. Now we have a bad situation, because they have been without a backbone for the last 15-years.

The scenario is playing out once again, as our politicians have no backbone to deal with the Social Security nightmare that is coming upon us. This, of course, is an implosion waiting to happen and the American public is too selfish to accept a real effort to fix the problem. Our 'leaders' are too concerned with their re-election to do what is right (when the public is too blind and too selfish) to deal with the issue. That is, other than President Bush.
