Gas Prices

“With the current rocket assisted boost of gas prices, I’m thinking at least a fair part of this is attributable to ‘ol George and DICK leaving at the end of their terms. They’re scarfing up as much profit as possible prior to departure.

I’m amazed Cheney has been allowed to run uninhibited the entire time. A man who worked for Haliburton, given a 30 million dollar golden parachute when he left to become Vice President Then as such is, by definition, the administrator for the energy policies of this country. Yeah, I have no doubt he’d act in the best interest of this country…dictating the energy policies for us while he has 30 million dollars of big oil’s money in his back pocket….no ethical dilemma there.

If you’re not at least curious, consider this…OPEC issued a statement only a couple weeks ago that petroleum supplies were plentiful, yet the United States “refused” to increase production, thus artificially inflating the price of crude. Who would be the person most responsible for the decision to NOT increase production? You guessed it, the old VP himself…DICK Cheney, Satan’s Little Helper. As a potentially ancillary result, the refusal to increase production has caused this fuel cost spike, which in turn causes spikes in the costs of pretty much everything (transportation, production, etc.), thus causing the inflationary behaviors that we’re now starting to see across the board.

So, a potential theory that might be floated here, is that George, DICK Cheney, and all of their cronies, are literally sticking it to the United States public by artificially creating circumstances to slide this country into a recession. Fantastic parting gift, don’t you think? Hell, there’s still enough time, and George, being such a religious sort…he could still opt for a presidential edict to have everyone’s first born killed just for good measure…claiming that the reduced cost of living would result in an economic up shift.

Jefferson was right….”the tree of Liberty DOES need to be refreshed from time to time”…and at this point, I swear we’re all looking at a tree with a serious case of dutch elm disease, with a pair of big old buzzards shitting on us while we wonder what we can do. I love this country, but I loathe the people that run it in our supposed best interest.

It’s ok though…we all have our TV’s, and as we’ve all learned, there’s no problem in this country that can’t be ignored by watching enough crappy programming, and forgetting that we’re being screwed by those that we endowed with our collective trust. Hey, everything will be alllllll better when Hillary, or Obama, or McCain is in office, right? I mean, none of them have any personal agendas, and they’re completely looking out for our interests. Hell, Hillary has become SO worried about us that she’s completely forgotten that she hated her opponent only weeks ago, and has started hinting at a joint ticket, as if that’ll unify us somehow. Meanwhile, McCain is so completely worried about our well being that he’s not backpedaling whatsoever in regard to the current scandals that he’s been tied to….(albeit most likely a tenuous tie, at best).

Political Science 101: The first priority of ANY, ANY, ANY first term politician (Hillary, Obama, McCain inclusive)…..is to get a second term. Do you see our well being in that first priority at all? No? Remember that. It’ll be relevant later.

As for George and DICK….they got their first priority taken care of, so they’re onto their next one…post-presidential lecture circuits, and book deals. Face it folks, they hate us every bit as much as we hate them. They’re not afraid of us anymore…the candidates that the corporate lobbyists agree upon will ALWAYS be the only options that we’re ALLOWED to vote for, and even if someone did sneak through, constantly changing election policies will ensure your vote is a impotent as our Constitution has been litigated to become.

So, enjoy it…we’re getting to view the beginning of the demise of the empire. It’s been corroding from within for years, and we get to see the bubbles of rust start to erupt through the paint job. It’s ok though…we’ll just add another coat of bondo with the upcoming election, and hide it all for another term. You may now return to your regularly scheduled programming…enjoy.”

Proud to be a White (read before you judge!)

Someone else besides me finally said it.  How many are actually paying attention to this?

There are African Americans, Mexican Americans, Asian Americans, Arab Americans, Native Americans, etc. and then there are just Americans.You pass me on the street and sneer in my direction. You call me “White boy,” “Cracker,” “Honkey,” “Whitey,” “Caveman” and that’s OK. But when I call you, Nigger, Kike, Towelhead, Sand-nigger, camel Jockey, Beaner, Gook, or Chink you call me a racist

You say that whites commit a lot of violence against you, so why are the ghettos the most dangerous places to live?

You have the United Negro College Fund.
You have Martin Luther King Day.
You have Black History Month.
You have Cesar Chavez Day.
You have Yom Hashoah.
You have Ma’uled Al-Nabi.
You have the NAACP.
You have BET

If we had WET(White Entertainment Television) we’d be racists.
If we had a White Pride Day you would call us racists.
If we had White History Month, we’d be racists.
If we had any organization for only whites to “advance” our lives, we’d be racists.

We have a Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, a Black Chamber of Commerce, and then we just have the plain Chamber of Commerce.
Wonder who pays for that?

If we had a college fund that only gave white students scholarships, you know we’d be racists.  There are over 60 openly proclaimed Black Colleges in the US, yet if there were “White colleges” that would be a racist college. In the Million Man March, you believed that you were marching for your race and rights. If we marched for our race and rights, you would call us racists.

You are proud to be black, brown, yellow and orange, and you’re not afraid to announce it. But when we announce our white pride, you call us racists.

You rob us, carjack us, and shoot at us. But, when a white police officer shoots a black gang member or beats up a black drug-dealer running from the law and posing a threat to society, you call him a racist.

I am proud.  But, you call me a racist.

Why is it that only whites can be racists?

There is nothing improper about this posting.  Let’s see which of you are proud enough to forward it.Â

Individuals are smart however People are STUPID

As I’ve grown older and arguably wiser, I’ve come to the conclusion that people in whole are stupid, while individuals are smart.  Think about it… people are like lemmings, reports of terrorist activities or a major sale at Kohls or Neimans, are enough to send people over the cliff.  When if we just stepped back and looked at it on an individual basis, a person would say OH HELL NO I’m not jumping.
 

My mother always asked… if everyone jumped off the bridge would you?  My response was not only no it was a resounding no that echoed off the walls of the bedroom (usually this question came when I was in major trouble for doing something ‘stupid’ along with the gaggle of girls I ran around with)
 

So people, try thinking for yourselves, be it in or out of the daymn box, use the grey matter that is between your ears, you’ll be surprised how many proverbial bridges you don’t leap off.
