Gas

I simply have no stomach for this election disaster whatsoever, and even, politics in general, just now. Life is full, otherwise. Those of you who come here for the rants and ridicule, I sincerely apologize. I'm sure I'll hit on some things here and there. In the meantime, we've always got Billy.

It's way past time for people to start owning up to what they laughingly call their "ideas". Fucking morons. I hope they freeze in the dark, listening to the cries of their children. The real sin in all this is how they take sensible people along with them on the ride.

Goddam right. I am fortunate in that the price of gas doesn't affect me very much, but I know it's effecting alot of other people, and for no good reason. If we truly were "running out of oil," then we should rightly welcome such increases in prices, as such is a natural, free-market means of both rationing what's left of supplies, as well as driving the search and development of alternative energy sources and alternative means of getting shit done, such as getting from point A to B. But you have the state, globally, in the whole mess from top to bottom and wall to wall. That's not a free market. If it's a "market" at all, then it's a market in force, favor, and influence above all, and only the biggest get to play in that game.

    Recently, while driving in Germany and looking at gas and diesel prices posted at stations, I was shocked at what Germans are paying for fuel. 1.599 Euro's, per liter for diesel. With the exchange rate of approx. $1.58 for 1 Euro, 3.7853 liters per gallon, which = about $9.26 per gallon for diesel, of which about half is taxes.
