Contains 10% or less of ethanol! What crap!

I took the family over to Universal studios this weekend (it’s great living just one hour away from Orlando and all the amusement parks) and on the way back I had to fill up the SUV. I paid $3.79/gallon. It cost $75 to fill up the freakin’ thing! To top it all off, we weren’t even in Orlando when I purchased the gas. We were in a rural area between Tampa and Orlando, so, to begin with, there was absolutely no reason for the price to be $0.10 more there than in Tampa. BUT!!! That’s not really what ticked me off!

On the pump it had a little sign that reads “Contains 10% or less of ethanol.” Okay, so if that’s the case, should I not be paying 10% or less for the freakin’ gasoline? How can you justify charging me $0.10 more than in the metropolitan areas and at premium rates if you’re supplementing with freakin’ corn juice? If you aren’t providing me with 100% gasoline, should I be paying 110% for it? Is this the reason why those freakin’ oil companies are pulling in record profits? They’re using our food supply to supplement the gas and still charging us full price!!!

First ~ which freakin’ idiot came up with the idea to use our food supply for fuel? How could anyone ever think this was a good idea?

Second ~ what makes you think my cars can handle ethanol? I did not buy my cars before they started making those stupid e-85 engines. You can bet that if I see this sign again, I’m going to find another gas station that doesn’t supplement the gas with corn juice. I don’t know what kind of damage that might cause to my engines.

Third ~ why the hell are we the people allowing the gas and oil industry to supplement our gas with freakin’ corn juice? Did you have a say in it? Did you vote for it? Did we tell our representatives in Congress that it was okay to give permission to the oil industry to do this? I know I sure in hell didn’t! I say we vote that out immediately!

Lastly – I know the oil industry is pulling in record profits. But, I blame that on Congress and the freakin’ eco-terrorists. If I sold a product and was not allowed to reinvest the profits, I would continue to rack up the profits. If I was able to produce a product cheaper and still charge full price for it, and not be able to reinvest the profits, those profits would continue to soar. Congress and the eco-terrorists refuse to allow the oil companies to build new refineries and they refuse to allow them to drill for oil in our own country. So, what are they supposed to invest the money in? Corn juice? It costs more to make that freakin ethanol than they are charging for it! But, why the hell should they care? The government subsidizes it! Wait..I take that back, WE the taxpayers are paying for it twice – we pay for the shortfalls in producing that ethanol and then we pay for it again at the pump, and then we are taxed like crazy for it by our cities, counties, states, and the federal government. The democratic plan for energy independence is to tax big oil profits! What a bunch of bull shit that is! This just goes to show how out of touch our representatives really are. You can’t tax profit. Profit is what you get AFTER you pay taxes. So, if the government attempts to tax the so-called profits, the oil companies will just put that against expenses and then increase the price of the gas whereby we the little people who actually have to pay for gas also pay for that so-called tax on profits.

And – to top this whole thing off – the primary reason that Congress is so out of touch with reality is because we the taxpayer are paying for their vehicles, their insurance, and their gas. Did you vote for this? I know I didn’t! I say, we the people – democrats, republicans, libertarians, and all parties in between need to tell our representatives they can no longer afford to waste our taxpayer dollars and expect us to pay for their transportation when we can barely afford to pay for our own. Perhaps if they felt the sting of paying $100 or more a week on gasoline to get back and forth to work they might actually do something about our energy problem – you know – like allow the oil companies to drill in the Dakotas, The Gulf, and ANWR then let them build the refineries to produce the gasoline we all need. In the meantime, build some nuke plants and look for other alternative forms of energy. Stop eco-terrorists like Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. from filing injunctions against windpower companies who want to put up windfarms in his city. What a hypocrite!

In staying with Jason Buckley’s guest post from last Friday, we as Americans need to unite against our own government and take it back from those extremists on the left and right. While we the little people who make this country as great as it is with our blood, sweat, tears, and toil, our representatives are living high on the hog on our dimes!

The Enemy Has Breached the Gate!!

Hey guys! Just wanted to let you know…If you read the post earlier this week…I have been asked to guest blog over at The Liberal Journal. I’ve posted it…go check it out now. With this being tax week…I figured I would try to re-educate those libs regarding the sins that are taxes!

See ya!

Betcha feelin’ real smart now aren’t ya!

This is actually intended for all those global warmongering believers out there who drink from the fountain of the Gore Almighty…for the rest of you smart ones who didn’t buy into the hoax..you can skip to the next post if you’d like…or you can read the rest for the entertainment!

So…On Saturday, March 29th, 2008 you all turned off all your electronic appliances and lights for one hour in a “symbolic gesture” to prove that you believe in man-made global warming and you support global socialization through “Green Taxes.” Wonderful! You must be feeling really proud of yourselves about now…..

It was reported that while you nimrods in 35 countries around the globe participated…there was no significant decrease in usage. In fact, in many areas, usage actually increased. If you think this was so symbolic and global warming exists…how come none of you will answer these questions truthfully?

1. The highest recorded temperature in the U.S. was back in 1934. So how is it possible that global warming exists and we are in dire straits now? Why aren’t the temperatures in the U.S. increasing each year if this were the case?

2. The highest recorded temperature globally was recorded in 1998 – ten years ago. Same question as above except for on a global scale.

3. If CO2 is the main greenhouse gas that causes man-made global warming – how is it that while CO2 has continuously increased over the years, the temperatures in the U.S. and globally have remained relatively level, or have decreased over the past 10 years?

4. If man-made global warming were true, why is it that most of the authors of the U.N.’s IPCC report on global warming have been backing away from the report and requesting to have their names removed (some have actually had to sue to get their names removed) because they were mislead about the purpose of the report? They contend their parts of the reports were edited and changed to benefit and support global warming when in fact their original reports refuted it.

5. Why is it that the leading astrophysicists, meteorologists, and others who are actually involved in studying global weather patterns say the main cause of global warming is actually the SUN, not man yet you don’t hear about this in the main stream media?

The fact is temperatures globally have actually fallen in the past 10 years..not risen. They recently completed a 5 year scrub of the ocean floors..the results? No significant increase in CO2 sediments…ergo..if CO2 and global warming are linked…there is no global warming.

The fact is that it has been found that a large majority of the international thermometers that are used in tracking global temperatures have been found to be installed incorrectly? Due to the incorrect installation the thermometers have been reported to indicated temperatures up to +6 degrees which throws off the aggregate numbers…giving the false illusion of an increase in global temperatures.

You global warmongering nutjobs need to wake up and smell the coffee! People like Al Gore are just using you lemmings to get rich! He owns several “Green” Hedgefunds that are making him millions! He owns several Carbon Offset organizations that is making him millions. The more people he enlists like you..the richer he gets. In the meantime, you are allowing people like him scare the shit out of our children making them think we’re all going to die if something isn’t done about global warming! Global warming does not exist! In fact, we’ve been having a global cooling! Record lows have been happening all across this country! It snowed in freakin’ Iraq for crying out loud…you know..that tiny little country in the middle of the desert that all the anti-war protesters are up in arms about?
