It's official...Poor people are responsible for rising gas prices

This morning, I had some important documents to drop off at the office of Vice-president Dick Cheney. Along with the VP's Halliburton bonus check, I delivered a white paper from the Treasury Department, which states categorically who is responsible for the rising gas prices in America.

It turns out poor folk are the reason it costs you $60 to fill up the tank of your Navigator. Here's the official administration explanation.

Poor folk shop at Wal-Mart.

Wal-Mart is the largest corporation in America — in fact, in the world. Its revenues make up 2 percent of America's GDP (whatever that is).

Wal-Mart has 6,000 suppliers. Of those suppliers, 5,000 or 80% can be found in one country. CHINA!

Recently, China has become the world's second largest consumer of energy and third largest importer of oil. It is the competition for oil that's driving up the prices on our God-given right to cheap gas.

Why would a backward Third World communist country need all that energy for?

Because it's busy making stuff for Wal-Mart.

So, if poor folk would start shopping at Nordstrom and Saks, energy prices would finally turn around and start dropping. But you can bet, those Democrat-voting, poor folks are too darn selfish to think about what's best for America.

You're right, of course, Nancy Jo. And don't forget that nicer clothes and better household goods would increase their self esteem, allowing them to be more productive citizens.

Exactly what I have been trying to say all along... DOWN WITH WALMART!!! It represents all the is evil in this world... (Kathylee's sweat shops.... olsen girl's "no eating" phylosophy.... off brand wranglers and levis (gasp!).... ) what are people THINKING?

Of course if you spent more money at more expensive places.. you would have less to spend on gas-- so people would drive less-- and the environment would be cleaner....

Are you people insane? The poor people of america shop at wal-mart because they have no choice - that is if they have the money to shop at all- . They are the ones suffering from the economy you have created -which by the way is headed into deep trouble because of your dear old president's billion dollar war, which is accumulating millions of dollars DAILY in debt from countries like... you guessed it, CHINA! How dare you blame the poor of the society which YOU created. Yes, oil prices ARE going up, and if you really want an answer - why don't you take a close look at yourselves and your own spending and the spending of (gasp) your own beloved president.
Please take time to have your own opinions and stop being so vulgar.
