In response to:

Energy Prices are the Fiscal Cliff

Donald Trump brought up the economy recovering and then every time the oil prices are spiked. He talked boldly about some "discussions" with the middle east oil lords and their cartel. A lot of people didn't like hearing Donald Trump tell it like it is. Too bad he wasn't elected. O'Reilly freaked out when Trump told him what he'd do, billy boy got really scared. No guts no glory, and our gutless wonder and liar in office now is much, much worse than our last President when it comes to low energy prices. Thanks Democrats, for almost destroying our economic prosperity. Your windmills and Solyndra panels aren't going to cut it. WAKE UP YOU IDIOTS.

The stalemate going on in Washington about the fiscal cliff highlights the two very different economic viewpoints held, not just in Washington, but across America: more government, more taxes; less spending, lower taxes. But there is a third prong that is largely absent from the discussion: growth and creating new wealth—and energy can play a big role, but it, too, has two divergent sides.

To have success, both sides need to feel that they are getting what they want.

Energy should be part of the current fiscal cliff discussions because all recessions since 1973 have been preceded by a spike...
