of crude, nor employment report figures for that matter. He is not God (although his party believes it speaks for God). I felt it important to start my first thread ever in this forum as there are dozens of you who believe that a Prez can control crude prices (impossible even in the short term, regardless of what they do with Strategic Reserves. Educate yourselves). Today's employment numbers brought the conspiracy people out in droves again. The Prez has NO CONTROL over these numbers. Its not partisan. If he did, they would ALWAYS be rosy. C'mon folks, you can't be that stupid. Jay PS just for the record, I was a Republican for years, but changed awhile ago and hope they lose both houses of Congress to shake things up. Yep, voted for Reagan, twice! Bush too, but I now want that spending party to hand over the reigns (voted for George the 2nd time only cause I thought the alternative much worse). We need to get away from God and spending!
