Gasoline and Treason
Today the prices at the pump seem to be in at around 3.30ish per gallon. Pretty expensive sure, but not quite as bad as the rest of the nation. There are some stations in these environs that are bumping 4.00 bucks but they are quite a bit over the norm here. Now with that being said, it will be small wonder if we are all not paying over 4.00 across the nation soon. It is apparent that when prices are sustained at that level for any length of time the economy begins to crumble. Our "nascent" recover is in jeopardy. Of course I jest. There really has been no real recovery to speak of. Perhaps some spot recovery here and there at best. I read and hear "economists" bleat about the fuel prices and of course there is wide spread differences of opinion. Some say the cost of fuel (along with everything else) will soon skyrocket while others say that prices will soon pull back. An economist practices "witch science" anyway and nothing any of them say can ever ever be taken seriously. Over educated dunces many of them. At any rate if high fuel and inflation are the coming norm then those who are energy obstructionists are solely to blame. They do not practice mere politics or have honest disagreements. They commit treason. It is high time that any who stand in the way of complete energy iindependence (this means exploration and drilling, the horror) be voted out of office at first opportunity. They are opium eaters, Utopians and, in fact, traitors. They have damaged this nation's national security.
