Notations On Our World (Week-End Edition): On the Fascinating US Political Scene

It was quite a week on the Political Front as the battle lines were drawn on the final year of President Obama's Presidency.     The two snapshots from the Office of the Speaker and the White House were quite telling!!

It was also of note how the Presidential Campaign went into overdrive as Bernie Sanders continued quite a momentum (and as we went to press, a poll came out that had him even with Hillary Clinton in Nevada).   Our team had noted that we would not be depending on polls.   What we do know that it is going to be fascinating on the Democratic Side as underscored by the debate between the contenders.   Our view is that South Carolina will further narrow the field before moving on to Nevada and Super Tuesday.   Our team had seen the appeals from the entire spectre of the Campaigns and we had periodically featured them here to underscore the targeted, sophisticated and interesting way in which they were targeting potential donors with titles like "Where are You"?  "Are You with me"?  and other thoughts.    

Fascinating to be Witness to it all.......

This Is the Number That Matters

You may have heard the news. President Obama submitted his budget to Congress this week, and tucked deep within the 170-page progressive manual, there's a number that has everyone talking (and not in the way you'd want). 

25.

That's how many cents the price a gallon of gas would increase by, on average, if the White House had its way.

Over time, all that change adds up, costing the average American household hundreds of dollars every year.
The good news is that President Obama's plan to raise your price at the pump is dead on arrival in Congress. So while he schemes of more ways to make hardworking Americans pay for his radical climate agenda, there's only one number that really matters:

ZERO.

That's how much of a chance his new oil tax has in this Congress.
