As for the issue at hand, I do not think the correlation between freedoms and cheap oil is warrented. I am a big fan of peak oil and the fact that that we will see "Hubbard's Peak" in the next decade or so. Its not about freedoms, its about supply and demand. Oil is a finite source and its production will eventually be on the decline, driving prices higher than they are right now.

Thats my beef on it

Not to defend bastards with a lot of money, I am going to have to disagree with BD on this little rant. Money is neutral until humans get their grubby little hands on it. Money can be used for good as well as bad. Here is my case. There are poor people who are complete jerks as well as poor people that are compationate, and there are rich people who are complete jerks as well as rich people who are compationate. Money just allows us to see a person's character a bit easier than a person without it.
Great points, couldn't have said it better myself.

I have a few friends that would be considered wealthy (as in owns several of Europe's finer hotels and resorts) though you wouldn't know it to look at them or talk to them. They're very frugal and live a modest life (except for those times when you're out with them and they suddenly decide to pick up every patron's bar tab) and really quite humble.

I'm sorry BD but I'll have to agree with Doody on this one and disagree with you.
I' am young but what I have learned about money is that he does never change the heart of a person. I do not believe you would become a bastard if you made a lot of money.
Money and education will enhance your qualities if you have some and will worsen your flaws. You'll be snobbish and conceded and will start to look down on people if you already were a bastard and now have won the lottery. You will not become humble and cooperative if you lost your money. You will still be a bastard. My opinion.

Been pondering and arguing this in my own head, even broke out a couple books and re-examined my position and...

I am also going to have to disagree with this dumbass called Bulldogg who said that. WTF is wrong with this guy?

Yeah Doody, you're right. Just to be clear I have nothing against rich people and nothing against people with money who behave like members. Its there God given right to be an ass if they choose to be. And I never said money WOULD change you into a person of ill repute. Guilty conscience IG?? hehehe
