This is in response to the knucklehead that said even if Rush Limbaugh was president, gas wouldn't get below $3 a gallon. I bet you give Republicans 4 to 8 years and get the pipeline from Canada, quit being beholden to them psychos in the Middle East for our oil, get it coming down from Canada, you drill where you can drill here in the United States, you get Obama's cronies in the EPA to release sanctions on the coal industry and let the coal industry do what they've been doing for the last 100 years and I guarantee you gas prices will get down back below $3 a gallon. ...
On the day that Obama was first sworn in, gas was $1.85 per gallon. I know this for a fact because I wrote it down that very day. Don't anybody embarrass themselves by calling in and saying this isn't true because it will publicly reveal your ignorance or your stupidity, take your pick.

When I lived in South Carolina, we had a white sheriff. The sheriff had a black deputy and a white deputy and they went around to see who was causing trouble, disturbances. If it was a black person, the black sheriff deputy would take charge of it and if he needed help, the other one would. If it was a white person, the white sheriff deputy would step in and that way we had no discussion or confusion on this racial mess like you have.
