How To Lower Oil Prices --- UPDATE

Kenneth M. O’Brien

On May 9, I posted an article titled “How To Lower Oil Prices NOW!”

I subsequently sent the piece as a Letter to the Editor that appeared in the Southbridge Evening News.

I even went so far as to send the proposal to our Congressman Richard Neill.

Apparently, there are those who still feel that my ideas are outlandish and of little merit.

Just recently I posted a piece titled “Judging Our Town Government” for which an anonymous commenter labeled me a moron.

Today on Andrea Mitchell Reports, Jim Cramer addressed the issue of how to lower oil prices. Here is what he said:


  1. Is it just coincidence that the increase in gas prices began during the Bush Administration and has continued since? Meanwhile since Bush has left office, he has continued to amass Millions.

  2. Mr. O'Brien, please get it right, as I did not label you a moron I simply stated the post was moronic ...."moronic is what this post is"

    Then I stated maybe you were the reason..."did you ever think you were the reason?"

    Please quote me correctly.

  3. moronic - having a mental age of between eight and twelve years
    retarded - relatively slow in mental or emotional or physical development; "providing a secure and sometimes happy life for the retarded"
    adjective idiotic, simple, foolish, mindless, thick, stupid, daft (informal), retarded, gormless (Brit. informal), brainless, cretinous, unintelligent, dimwitted (informal), asinine, imbecilic, braindead (informal), mentally defective, dumb-ass (slang), doltish, dead from the neck up (informal), halfwitted, Boeotian, muttonheaded (slang) Collins Thesaurus of the English Language – Complete and Unabridged 2nd Edition. 2002 © HarperCollins Publishers 1995, 2002

    Having said that, what was moronic? If you can’t be specific, then what am I expected to respond to other than moronic name-calling.

  4. Once you've answered that question, please go on to explain how I might be the reason.
