Media needs to stop the BS about Gas prices, supply chain, blah blah blah

People are dying for no reason. That should override their stupid media click bait crap about the hits on our economy. We need to bite the bullet and deal with any fallout from the Russian invasions. The more we can endure the more lives might be saved. Any media company whining about gas prices while a sovereign country is undergoing an unprovoked attack from a huge bully doesn't deserve to be heard - period. Also, any oil company who is inflating prices unnecessarily and trying to maximize profits at this moment doesn't deserve our business any longer, now or after the conflict is over.

15. I didn't take them to be trolls. Many had a high post count.

I took most of them to be frozen by fear of a nuclear attack by Russia. Some are committed pacifists.

17. I say we take all the morons that were at the Capital insurrection

and draft them immediately to Ukraine to fight Russia so they know what it is truly like to fight for your country - that goes for those that goaded them into it as well.

11. Will some script writer at whatever station stop being so damn lazy

And stop using "Pain At The Pump" every time they do that story. I've given up that they'll ever stop the -gate suffix for scandals.

16. Exactly. There is not a sufficient supply disruption to justify the price hikes.

The oil companies are price gouging.

The oil companies do not see themselves as "US companies." They see themselves as international entities that owe no allegiance to any country. They are only concerned with profits. The actions of the oil companies require act by western governments.
