    0ccidental petroleum boasts 46 % increase in earnings for 1st quarter. Saudis keep production down on low demand for oil. Glad I can help line your pockets big oil.

      Good grief RUFFNUTT,when did you join the Tea Party Movement??? If you did,the advice you gave above is quite prudent indeed since we Tea Partiers are the dumbest people around!!! Unfortunately,not many people will heed what you posted above.

    This is the worst series of events that I have heard of in years. RUFFNUTT's breath, Joey and Caesar leaving us, Jeff Franks's gas predictions, Jorma moving to Finland. It's a horrible, devastating situation. The good news though, is Lucifer always makes me laugh, Jazz is still lost, RUFFNUTT's breath stinks but he getting a new engine for his Camaro, Mmmmm is dumb as ever and ole lady only had a minor stroke not a heart attack. Philip and leeintulsa are geniuses and should be awarded the congressional medal of honor.

    Prayers to all that are leaving or who have nasty breath, and my sympathy to the ones that have to deal with losing their friends or having to continue to smell the dog poop breath odor. May those devastated know that there are people who are thinking of them, and who care. Because I don't.
