Many of these articles blame the high prices on speculators on ‘oil futures’ gamblers on Wall Street and stock exchanges around the world. Morgan Stanley predicts $150 a barrel by July 4th.

What is going on here? Why are speculators, who lost billions in the last fiasco of sub prime mortgages racket, being allowed to drive up oil and food prices into another bubble? Where the hell are the regulators? Oh that’s right, oversight has been whittled away, at least in America by pressure from these same ‘bankers’, with a capital ‘W’ on Congress, who of course own shares in oil, munitions, and Monsanto, the Genetically Modified Seed and Food Giant Corporation.

What a crock! What a blatant and absolute fraud!
