Killing as in death? I think not. It's painful to say the least (my last 
fillup was $60+) but I'm surviving as I suspect most of you are. I think it 
is just forcing people to re-evaluate their priorities. I can keep my 
gas-guzzling Yukon or I can go see 3 crappy movies every month (with 
popcorn). Incidentally I have chosen to sell my Yukon in favor of a sweet 
Hyundai (oxymoron).

Has the president even made a comment about how this is hurting
> families? 

Don't even get me started on the president. 9/11 = Bush's Reichstag (should 
provide some fuel for the flame war)

We can put a man on the moon.


We can send a probe to land on mars.


We can invent nuclear weapons.

if by "invent" you mean steal someone else's idea 

We can fly in the air.

no we can't - but our airplanes can 

We can cure most medical problems.

like AIDS and cancer?

We can now communicate instantly anywhere in the world.

as long as they have a computer and an internet connection

We can watch live sporting events from anywhere in the world.

see above

Then why in the hell can't I get more than 30mpg in my car?

Because you sir, are living the American Dream!
