    Russian economy was based on $80 a barrel oil but the price plunge has them in a wee bind. Their economy is in bad shape. Market Watch says that the Saudis hold the cards to oil prices
    The Saudis are our big ally. But the Donald is rather antagonistic to Saudis. Hmm. I wonder why since the Prince was so kind to bail him out of his financial jams again and again. Perhaps he is being enticed by a higher bidder . The financial incentive makes this Bromance so much more sense.
    How ’bout them apples ?
