Kept hearing on the news back in April that rising fuel prices were the cause of converting over to the “summer” blend and that those prices would come right back down. They haven’t. Ethanol continues to cost the American taxpayer billions in subsidies and it continues to ruin engines. Electric isn’t getting off the ground and fuel of some source is necessary to run the power plants to make the electricity which charges those vehicles. Now there is a new problem with unrest in the Middle East where it is impacting oil exports.
We are sitting on immense coal, oil and natural gas supplies that would make us independent from the needs of other countries’ resources. Why are we not making this reality? Obama. The side affects are a weaker, non-working economy. People aren’t making a paycheck. The ones that are can’t afford the fuels that drive our lives so they are living in a deficit (including myself). Thing is, the greeners are happy because the planet is being saved thru their cause. Is it? Is anything we do here changing how other industrialized countries operate? Russia? China? India? Mexico? The climate changers, greeners, and the Obama administration want to be leaders where the rest of the world will emulate our initiatives. We haven’t led anything in years. Why would countries follow us down the economic toilet when they can keep their economies going through the utilization of ANY resources available to them? They wouldn’t and won’t. We are the only suckers committed to economic suicide. Boy, this Obama agenda is so screwed up.
If we ever get a regime change that puts America on the right track again, I’m going to get a T-shirt that reads “I survived the worst economic times in American history–Obama Socialism”. I believe that trumps my Dad’s Great Depression.
