Over the past 2 days, I heard Treasury Secretary John Snow, CNBC commentator James Cramer, and several other heads engage in Orwellian Newspeak, claiming: “OIL PRICES ARE A TAX ON CONSUMERS .”

I’ve addressed this extensively in the past, and you can (and should) read it here:
Oil price rises are not tax increases

Enough of this nonsense!

Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.
