In Case You've Wondered

My blog is where my wandering thoughts are interspersed with stuff I made up. So, if while reading you find yourself confused about the context, don't feel alone. I get confused, too.

If you're here for the stories, I started another blog:

One other thing: sometimes I write words you refuse to use in front of children, or polite company, unless you have a flat tire, or hit your thumb with a hammer.

I don't use them to offend; I use them to embellish.

Price of Fuel

I think it's safe to write that most people are pissed about the price of fuel. Thanks to the wobbly dollar, increased restrictive regulations and the big push by progressives for green energy, we're finding just getting to and from work is a substantial drain on income.

The media isn't constantly reminding us of this economic hit, with conjecture and finger pointing, since their contender had a huge roll in causing this problem. I think they're hoping it will not be a big factor for the choice of the next President, but they're living on false hope. The people that have to survive won't forget on election day. 

Another thing: While the fuel prices are bad enough, most people don't realize their higher food costs can be attributed to the demand for ethanol in gasoline. Besides the loss in our food, feed prices are out of control due to shortages, thanks to ethanol requirements. Meanwhile, we pay subsidies, which is the only reason ethanol manufacturing hasn't gone bust. Ethanol cannot survive in the free market, so we're forced to pay for the production with tax dollars.

I see a lot of Obama, or other progressive election signs in yards. I don't know about you, but I have to control my reactions and wonder how people can be so stupid. Then again, Obama wasn't elected by the sharpest knives in the drawer. I can only hope the worst of them will realize their error, make amends and jump off the nearest bridge.

  1. I don't see those yard signs here in a democratic district (John Dingell).
    I suspect if I did you'd see my tire tracks on the lawn and the sign gone.
    I did see one on a street corner.
    Meant to go back and plant it on MY lawn with a red spray painted slash symbol on it, but it was gone!
