Image of the Day: Biden's "Make America an Energy Importer Again" Presidency

What was once a decades-long dream became reality during the Trump Administration, as the U.S. finally became an energy exporter again.  As Laffer Associates highlights, Joe Biden has inexplicably put that into reverse gear, and now gas prices are on their way back up.  This is progress?

A Dickinson, Texas woman is being sued by her son after allegedly charging up his credit cards and refusing to pay back the debt.
 
Matthew G. McMahon is suing his mother, Darlene L. Marzouk and her ex-husband (his father) for more than $26,000.  According to the complaint, McMahon claims that his parents racked up numerous charges on his credit cards which they are now refusing to pay.  He claims his parents approached him about using his low-interest credit cards and he agreed only after his parents promised to pay all charges and indemnify him.
 
Marzouk contends she did not make any such representations and accuses her son and ex-husband of attempting to re-litigate matters that were or should have been litigated in their divorce proceedings last year.

Correction (February 9, 2012):   As reported in the Sourtheast Texas Record on February 8, 2012, Darlene Marzouk is Matthew McMahon's former step-mother, not his mother.
