    Remember the gas prices back in the early 90's. You could get bout $20 worth and be filled for 2 days. Now,..$20 wont even get you far. It cost bout 50 bucks just to fill your car, truck or vans. This economy is sad...

    In the Spirit of Sankofa,




    .......Here's a look back in time, from October, 2008 thru December, 2008, at gas prices then, enjoy the history:

    How much is gas in your area?

    Maybe we can trace these high gas prices again?







    Peace In,

    Is it sad? or just closer to fair? Do you recognize the connection between the oppression of peoples of Northern Africa to gas prices in the U.S? Do you understand how much blood it takes to keep these prices affordable in the U.S.? See.. that's the rub.. the dichotomy.. cheap prices are a result of oppression. someone somewhere is being held down.. is being hustled.. is being bullied.. is being murdered.

    But how can we, out of one side of our mouths, be against the exploitation of sweatshop slavery, for example, and demand lower prices from the other side of our mouth? Last time I checked Walmart represented something like 2% of America's GDP. How are Walmarts prices so cheap in America? It's through oppression. through conflict.. through blood.

    All those people were killed in Iraq to control the price oil. The African genocide in Libya was assisted by the US in order to keep control of that region for the purpose of controlling the price of oil and the other raw materials that the bloodsucking western world. What has been happening with the Palestinians is connected to your Gas prices.. Israels purpose is to act as a proxy for western powers in the North African region. Their job is to represent white power in that region.. they are armed to the teeth and have nuclear weapons as a threat to their neighbors. And there presence and actions impact your gas prices.

    The economy really really aint what it used to be.. it used to be based on you and me.. we were the economy.. our blood factored in to the nations GDP.. a lot folks would call those the good ole days.. but the real name for it was slavery.

    take a look at the top 4 of the Fortune 500.. First number is Revenue, second is Profit.

    1 Wal-Mart Stores
    421,849,000,000
    16,389,000,000

    2 Exxon Mobil
    354,674,000,000
    30,460,000,000

    3 Chevron
    196,337,000,000
    19,024,000,000

    4 ConocoPhillips
    184,966,000,000
    11,358,000,000

    1 retailer and 3 oil companies. now connect the dots..
