'Talking it to death'

“Oil chiefs say high prices not our fault” — so says the latest headlines via the Internet.I tend to agree, when you have a group of elected people giving way too much attention to Al Gore’s opinions on global warming and other environmental causes and totally forget the millions of people who depend on their cars and trucks for their work and transportation needs.

U.S. taxpayers should not have to hock their jewelry in pawn shops to put gas in their automobiles. I think I read where a couple in Fresno had to do this recently. It is time to stop the blame game and do something about it, instead of talking it to death.
