Sticker shock as food and gas prices are set to go higher
You don’t have to be an expert to notice that costs for many essentials are at all-time high. From gas to food, Americans can expect to pay even more in coming months.The current national average for a gallon of gasoline is $3.67, higher than it’s been since 2008.

Why Are Gas Prices So High?
High gas prices are caused by commodities traders. They bid up the price of gas contracts on the commodities futures markets. These commodities exchanges allow investors to buy contracts of gasoline for future delivery at an agreed-upon price. However, many traders have no intention of taking ownership of the gasoline. They plan to sell the contract for a profit, instead.

Obama Creates New National Monument

This is an article from March 11 2014 that no one and I mean no one was talking about.

From thinkprogress.org

On Tuesday, President Obama held a ceremony at the White House to announce his use of executive authority to expand the California Coastal National Monument (CCNM) to include the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands on the Mendocino Coast. This is the first land-based addition to the CCNM and permanently protects more than 1,660 acres of beach, bluffs, and the Garcia River estuary. The area is home to rare and endangered species such as coho salmon, steelhead, the Point Arena mountain beaver, and the Behren’s silverspot butterfly. The Mendocino Coast of California was recently picked for the number 3 spot in the New York Times “52 Places to Go in 2014.”

Yes, I know that Obama is not the first to do this, but enough is enough. It is time for the States to stand up and take back their land. The Antiquities Act is Un-Constitutional and null and void. As all Un-Constitutional laws are. Stand up people and grow a pair. And yes, I am a radical. As radical as all of our Founding Fathers. Oh, and IMPEACH OBAMA!!!!
