Mac Gave me Fodder

for a rant on gasoline ...

May as well put the rant here too. She said that "petrol" was selling for the equivalent of roughly $9.osomething a gallon. She asked how much we're paying.

Here was my response:

too freakin' much.

$4.42 a gallon today.

BTW, I don't know if you know or not but the US gallon is 4/5ths an Imperial gallon. I don't do litres and neither should you. ;-D Outside of class anyway.

My tank holds about 13 gallons and I'd gone 288 miles and a shade. It took about 12.12something or so to fill it up today. I have the car a little overloaded at the moment, but considering it's a small Honda SUV the milage was just under 24 MPG, which isn't bad.

I say next time we have a war with the camel jockeys we should just start a war for the hell of it, take all their damn oil and not apologize for it - then we can grab Ted Kennedy, and all those other bozo bunny hugging polar bear loving granola crunching sandal wearing bearded hippy tie dyed tshirt wearing tree climbing ****ers and get them in a group and take them all up to Point Barrow in Alaska, let them freeze to death, sharpen a point on their dead carcasses and use that as the drill head to start drilling in the Anwar. Had we started when we'd wanted to years ago, we'd be just about self sufficient. That goes for drilling off Fla and Ca. too as the heathen Chinamen and Cubans are doing with their slant drilling....then we ought to line up every politician that stood in the way, line em up against the wall, and rip the flesh off them.

Then after that we should get real mad.

We also need to build some new oil refineries, because those panty waists haven't approved a new one in 20 years even though we've had 20-25 millions of illegal aliens in plus our own natural population growth.

And if McCain doesn't take his head out of his backside and get religion real soon we can nail his crown jewels to the wall too.

H/T Mac (good cartoon too)

Right on!!! Enough of these "gaia" people.

Reasonable STEWARDSHIP is one thing, but these sallow skinned envirowhackos need to be stopped.

Biofuels are the answer.
Starves out all those dreadful poor people-who tend to be brown and therefore even more dreadful-saves the whale (somehow) and allows Gaia to be worshipped by the worthy.

Anyway Karen you go girl-put your carbon footprint down firmly!

Adrienne, I must have been on a roll.

WSNS - absolutely, and I'm not happy with the crackers in appalachia who have 5 broken down vehicles in their front yards either ... and whales? What possible use since we have flourescent lights.

Karen, don't forget nuclear energy. I find it amusing that the same folks who vow to run off to France to live if a Republican is elected are bat-shit skeered about nuclear energy, despite the fact that is France's main source of energy!

Me, I'm practically wedded to my car. Public transport? Anathema sit (or rather, anathema stand because it's too darn crowded!)


Thanks for the link.

Well, Mac, if ever I worshiped "strange gods before me" it would have had to be the car....

In my adult life there was one year for the better part I had to rely on public transportation. 1/2 of them were just "normal people trying to get wherever" the other 1/2 were certifiable, and a portion of them unstable enough to bear watching lest the do you physical harm.
