Dumb & dumber

February 21, 2012

When I heard on the radio today that some gas stations, in California, were charging over $4.00 for a gallon of gas I was overjoyed. Overjoyed with the fact that our president lead the charge to not approve the Canadian oil pipeline. He and his minions in congress and the senate virtually assured that domestic production both off shore, in Alaska and with Canada would not happen. Now we have to face the consequence of these well planed actions.

I believe the Canadians have already signed an agreement with China to re-route the proposed pipeline to Canada’s Western coast so it could be shipped to China. Am I the only one who does not understand why the US is taking these actions. It seems so obvious that by limiting our own oil production and by not accepting oil from Canada, (a country that for the moment does not want to kill us), that we are doing everything we can to crash our economy.

Yes I know the president supports a “green” economy, and he and many others believe oil is just one big pollution machine. From there belief of the adverse environmental impact of exploring and drilling for the oil to the refineries sending there emissions into our air. That is why he wants us to go green. From his backing, with millions of our dollars, to a solar panel company that went broke soon after getting our money. To his un-wavering support of the electric car.

Now thats a sore spot for me… I do agree that the electric car does not pollute the air as it is driven, and it does not use gas so it lowers our dependence on oil. But have any of those idiots in Washington realized that the cars batteries need to be re-charged. When you plug into any outlet in the United States that electricity is coming from a generator powered by natural gas, oil, coal or nuclear power. I thought the president said we needed to eliminate our dependence on them.

And just for the moment lets take a look at what would happen if the majority of cars were electric. Last summer we were having brown outs across the nation when the summer heat had us all turning on our air conditioners. What will happen when you add 10 or 20 million electric cars? I am sure that he will give more of our tax dollars to support those solar panel companies so they can cover the Southwest and produce more electricity. If they don’t run out of land to panel over or go bankrupt first.

Yes dumb and dumber, from our president to our representatives it would be funny if it wasn’t taking this nation down the road to ruin. It is actions like this and others that I write about that I can see no logical reason for.

Who benefits from what they are doing?

What ultimate purpose can come from such lunacy?

    Ah gee, we know he’s dumb and we know those helping him are dumber! But still makes me wonder who is the dumbest, that they voted him into offgice in the first place. We have to give credit where credit is due here fella’s. He didn’t just walk into office without a few million people voting for him, which is the scarest thing of all!
    Yes we do want change…but not his tyhpe! We need to go back to our roots and forefather’s belief’s! It would help alot.
    Well you know for a Greenie, he sure as … spend’s alot of fuel to go on all those vacations, him and that woman who seems to think she can do anything also. Figure out just how much fuel him and her have spent in the last 3 1/2 years? Also congress, senate….etc. Plus check their electric and fuel bills, be they don’t go without much. Check their bank accounts in relation to the rest of the United States. Check their “friends”
    oh we gotta keep on living…and saving,….nobody else is! Just us common broke seniors, lol.

    1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
    2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
    3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody …else.
    4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
    5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them; and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.

      Excellent! Exactly! The more you want the government to do for you, the more the government can do to you…you lose control.

    Hi to everybody!
    Ever since this Chev. Volt (dolt) came out & all this talk & bs about electric cars, I’ve been chuckling over the thought of the fights, shootings, & assaults over the last plug-in at midnight at the Mr. & Mrs. Smith hotel! LOL! Or the patrons peering out their windows til the last room lamp goes out to go out & unplug someone else’s car & plug their own in. But then again, there won’t be any lamps on because the cars are taking up all the electricity.

    Liz, another name for greenie is something in your nose; same difference! Just remember the word in the middle of the word environMENTAList.

    Have a “green day, all. Still enjoying gorebal warming here in Mn. 20 days of 40+ since Dec. 1.

      Had 25 days below -25 in January and only 3 days just above zero that month, out here. Still have lots more snow than town had and it gained a couple more inches today. Still looking for the iceberg sliding up over the horizen, since every ice age has been preceeded by a period of “global warming”. Did they blame those on the dinosauers farts?

    those extinct animals, don’t you think?
    What in the world were those poor dinosauers thinking of?
