Omigosh O'reilly just said that speculation is driving up oil prices....... How in the world is he so popular on Faux news, surely no one believes him. He said he is now waiting to see what president Obama will do about the speculation. Now I am waiting for Hannity to say something about the speculation. How long should I wait????

Did he say that speculation was not a free market concept? When is obama going to end free market principles?

obama isn't going to take over the means of production, like NG, is he?

Why is it that libs (or socialists in your case, TSR) complain about speculators driving up the price of oil, but brag about the great economy when speculators drive up the DJIA? Or brag about the great ag economy when other commodities like cattle and grain are high due to speculators? Why is that?

You mean obama didn't use aany of the stimulus funds to accomplish this?

Why would he approve stimulus funds for Fast and Furious, but not for regulating the markets?

No I didn't. As well, I didn't notice such a smile when he complained of the oil company subsidies.. Hypo, you may be seeing what you want to see, kinda like some scientists who profess the success of their experiments that no other scientist can reproduce.

TSR, do you know how I know O'Reilly was being sarcastic when he asked what obama was going to do about oil speculation?

Because in the past he has said that a president does not have that power




O'Reilly on April 21, 2008: The Republican Party pretty much lets big oil do whatever it wants and refuses to rein in corrupt speculators who drive up the price of oil. So the next time you hear a politician say he or she will bring down oil prices, understand it's complete BS. If Americans want lower gas prices, cut back.

TSR, weren't speculators, speculating when obama took over?


Please explain to all of us how speculation has increased the price of gasoline by about 100%, since obama became President

and........

Why haven't prices gone up as much in Canada?

Well I will leave that explanation up to the politicians many of whom are republicans who think speculation plays a major role.

What was the stock market avg. when Obama took over?? That is one thing that comes to my mind as compared to today?? And honestly I have no idea.

Why do speculators speculate? Why would they bet on prices going up or down?

profits from speculating is only possible if the environment allows for it.


You cannot increase demand and decrease supply like obama has been doing, without expecting the price fluctuations, that speculators use to profit.

Your comments interest me. Tell me, when in the environment, is it not possible to speculate??? When will the environment not allow it as you have said??

go back and read what I wrote, it included "profit" (I might not have been clear enough, the way I wrote it)


speculation will always be present, in a free market. It is the profit potential that is affected by the market conditions (environment)
