@DWAZ73 : One other thing: Idzik now has landed arguably No. 1 QB, RB and WR in free agency this offseason despite deliberate approach. #Jets
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 02:42 PM) Jordan...what number was he? it was 30sometihng
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 02:43 PM) tanaka had a great game today. gave up 2 hits due to bunts. 10K
Mr_Jet Icon : (Yesterday, 02:48 PM) Jordan was #34 with the Jets.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:03 PM) Tanaka is looking like a stud
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Jets added Vick, Chris Johnson, and Eric Decker to the offense.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) And this draft is loaded at the offensive skill positions
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:04 PM) Hopefully we can get anohter starting WR and starting TE in the draft
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) Our offense could be much better than last year
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:05 PM) can't get much worse than what it's been the last 2 years
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 03:22 PM) Very cool
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:24 PM) FIRE IDZIK
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:32 PM) still need another WR
Jetsfan115 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:33 PM) so i bet powell barely gets any touches this year and goodson gets cut
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) Goodson is as good as gone.
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 03:34 PM) With all his legal issues and coming off injury he is done. Possibly even in the NFL
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) Powell is average anyways.
Chaos Icon : (Yesterday, 03:39 PM) @ProFootballTalk 5m

Per source, Chris Johnson's two-year deal has a base value of $8 million, with another $1 million available in incentives based on yardage.
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:40 PM) He does a lot of things well, but isn't talented enough. Johnson has breakaway ability still and Ivory is man beast running the football
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 03:41 PM) We will get another WR in the draft. Even in round 2 you can get a starting WR
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 04:09 PM) I am still standing by my CB in the first round and WR in the second prediction
santana Icon : (Yesterday, 05:19 PM) The title race is bale
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 05:34 PM) Sidney rice coming in for a visit
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) I think the Jets are getting themselves ready to draft best player available
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 05:49 PM) Last year they stuck to their board
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:27 PM) if they sign him I think that means they look to take a CB round 1
2JBallar01 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:32 PM) “@AdamSchefter: RB Chris Johnson's 2-year deal with Jets has a team option in it for year two. Jets have option to pick up year two at $4M in February 2015.”
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:51 PM) @AlbertBreer 2m
Sidney Rice has agreed to terms with the Seahawks on a one-year deal, per source.
Expand
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:55 PM) There is really only 2 CBs worth taking at 18
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:56 PM) I rather get a offensive playmaker
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:58 PM) LaMont Jordan was 34
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 06:59 PM) liar
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) He wore #34 when he played for the JETS
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) I should know I met him at an event in his last year with the JETS before he went to Oakland
ganggreen2003 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:05 PM) GFYS 0099 you shit talker
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) http://www.nydailyne...entry-1.1758342
HarlemHxC814 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:06 PM) there's no reason we can't have someone off this site on that list too
azjetfan Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) Rice resigned with Seattle
Jetsfan0099 Icon : (Yesterday, 07:08 PM) did you scare him into going to Oakland?

I think its insane, but just remember, the Saudi Arabian oil reserves are bound to run out within a few decades...when that happens, were sitting on gold with our untapped Alaskan reserves.


hysterical.gif Gold huh.

You do know that IF Alaska isn't under water by then and that happens; then that is when Saudi Arabia will call in their loans to the U.S. and we'll have to pay back the money we've borrowed from them. If the Saudi's have no oil it will hurt their economy so who are they going to be looking to for money? The nations that owe them money (like the United States). Then there is China another country we owe a lot money to. As we can clearly see China really likes oil now too. So if the Saudi's have no oil China will be knocking on our door too and say "Y'all might as well just give us Alaska," since we owe them so much money. Basically if either Saudi Arabia and China's economies go south we'll have to mortgage Alaska's oil just to pay off our debts to them.

Hmmm to think 15 of the 19 hijackers on 9/11 were Saudi Arabian and some of the money we use to buy oil ends up in the hands of terrorist. But we've got to cheaply fill up or SUV's so let's keep a military presense in the Middle East to protect our oil interest, oil that is bound to be gone in a few decades. Then we can make T.R. roll over in his grave and drill in Alaska not knowing for sure just how much oil is up there. Just to have to end up giving that Alaskan oil money to the Saudi royal family and the communist Chinese government. But hey George W. Bush seems like a guy who will sit down and have a beer with me (despite being a rich W.A.S.P. from New England). Plus he'll protect us from another 9/11 and keep Sadaam bin Laden on the run, so I'll vote for him. Wait voting means I'll have to get off the couch so I'll vote for Dancing with the Stars instead since all I have to do is pick up my iPhone to do that. God bless America, because his blessing is all we'll have to save us at this rate.

Oh I hope my rant is precieved to be un-patriotic and hurt Obama's campaign since I'm a supporter of his. I mean everything I say he supports of course.

I can't change my ways, everything is so far away for me, everything has to be spread out in my town.

Instead I am going to go to plan B, I am going to raise up a army, a large army and take over the oil supply, then have free gas for me! Anyone in??? spiteful.gif

Are the prices in American done per gallon?

Over here in Britain the norm is around 1.20 per litre (just under $2.40 per litre). They had an article in The Times Saturday which compared British petrol prices to other countries and it said in Florida the cost is about 0.30/litre (a shade under 60 cents).

I passed my driving test about a month ago, but as I share my mum's car, luckilly I don't have to pay the petrol. If I had my own though, I'd probably be spending most of my money on fuel because the prices are so high.
As analogkid said, a lot of what you pay is tax anyway. In Britain for every litre of petrol, you pay 0.50 (around a dollar) in tax and VAT is also added at 17.5%!

Too bad ANWR has about a 6 month supply of oil at present consumption rates. The US should really focus on lowering demand rather than increasing supply. People should stop buying Hummers for no reason. If the US had a fleet average of 40 mpg, they wouldn't have to import oil from OPEC countries. That is possible within 10 years, when OPEC countries are broke they'll be more apt to stop terrorism.

Wow! That sucks. We'll be there soon.
Fifteen years ago after an especially disappointing loss to Miami, Esiason, then the Jets' quarterback, was making the seven-mile drive from the Meadowlands back to Manhattan.
While he was slogging through stop-and-go traffic at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel, the car next to him was violently rear-ended. The quarterback threw his car into park, hopped out and ran to the woman whose car had been hit. She was wearing, of all things, an Esiason jersey, and was utterly shocked when he tapped on her window to check on her.
"Are you OK?" he said, trying to keep calm. "Are you OK?"
"Boomer? Is that you?" she asked the Good Samaritan, sounding disoriented. "I think I'm OK, but . ... "
But what?
"But you guys sucked."

All we keep hearing is that rising global demand is driving prices...well consider this for one moment.

From an investment perspective, if global consumption increases by 10%, then the cost of oil should increase by 10%. If analysts predict that global demand WILL increase by 20%, then oil futures should increase by 20%. This is simple economics.

Now lets consider what has actually happened:
Global oil demand in 2003 was 79 million barrels per day.
The IEAs forecast for 2008 is 87.2 million barrels per day.
This is a 10.4% increase in 5 years.

The price per barrel in 2003 (adjusted for inflation) was $31.62. Today the price is $115.63. That is a 265.7% increase.

I call BULLSHIT!!


Nah my man. If we were talking about potatos, you'd be right on point. When you're talking about a precious non-renewable resource, you have to account for the anticipated scarcity. Demand jumped, but what is missing from you analysis is the fact that everyone (meaning governments) are anticipating further hikes in the price, so they're hoarding oil. Even though oil's utility increased by 10.4%, it's gross consumption is much greater because a lot of it is being stored.

New World Order Economics is not what they teach you at the University. Scarcity is a Farce the Tool of deception used to justify all their lying ways.they will get total control over all your lives acquire all of the wealth and just eliminate
90% of the population. Democracy is turn upside down in reality its socalism by the Corporate State . gas prices at 4-5 dollars is ecomonic warfare and turning down the heat make you people feel good about the price thinking you are getting a great deal when in fact you are not. you are all asleep I say wake up.
