"The hope that rising gasoline prices or increased gasoline taxes will substantially reduce automobile travel by inducing people to choose public transportation is unrealistic."
"No American politician in local, state, and federal elections can hope to win if he/she expresses the slightest criticism of Israel’s “Apartheid” brutality against the Palestinians. Candidates always begin their campaigns by wooing the powerful Jewish vote, not only for money, but for media exposure. All fight to “Out-Jew and Out Israel” each other. To win in America one must be nice with Israel."

These are old and senseless concerns."
