Gas Prices Are Too Damn High
Remember Jimmy McMillan from the 2010 election cycle? You know, "The Rent Is Too Damned High" man? Well, he's back and starting his own movement once again. So out he comes with a video. He has it pegged. Gasoline is too damn high. You just gotta love this guy. The rent is still too damn high and now prices at the pump are shooting through the ozone. Take a look at his video. I always felt, after watching Jimmy in action, that he might make a better Presdient than our current one. Run - Jimmy - Run!
Here in Texas this is our message to President Obama:
"Touting a Failed Energy Policy is like Putting Lipstick on a Pig"
Tell It Like It Is Congressman...
Lets talk facts here instead of the fairy tales while Obama is crisscrossing the country right now spinning like the Lunatic-in-Chief someone recently dubbed him. Since Obama has taken office gasoline prices have doubled. Can you feel it in your wallet? Has your dinner table been looking a little sparse? How about that grocery bill, has it been rising? Don't worry! There will be plenty of algae to eat if our Prez has his way. Yummy in your tummy! Just ask him. He claims that "if" we can figure out how to refine it it "could" replace 17% of our imported oil. Big "IF" there pal.
Fresh Greens For The Table! Or Maybe The Gas Tank?
Being the ideologue Obama is though he is sticking to his "green guns." He's out there right now in Oklahoma claiming credit for the part of the Keystone Pipeline that goes nowhere after he lobbied Congress like a demon to kill the rest of the project. That's the truth, not Obama spin. He's wandering the great plains telling all the folks out there, who will listen anyway, that he is going to now double down with our tax dollars to push his already failed "green agenda." Remember Solyndra and $535 million of our money flushed down the solar panel commode? I sure do. He refuses to open up the areas we all know contain massive oil reserves to domestic producers. Why? To assuage his tree hugging constituency. You ever hugged a tree? I've never felt the urge myself.
Some Slobbering Love Affair Huh?
Now I don't know about you but every time I pull up to the pump these days two things have usually occurred. The first is the price has zoomed even higher. The next is that my wallet jumps out of my back pocket and hides underneath the driver's seat! How much more of this are we going to take until we have to put our foot down and say enough is enough? This is our country and it seems to me that Obama thinks its his toy and a lab experiment.
I'm like Jimmy's new movement. I'd love to hear from each of you just how these escalating gas prices are affecting you, your family and your lives in general.
Let er rip. Now's your chance...
Obama On Empty? Surely Not!
Had Enough Yet?
It's amazing the amount of campaigns and movements going on about this issue while Obama is out doing his usual campaigning trying to convince us that his green thumb is the answer to our problems. He's only been on the campaign trail since January of 2009 when gas prices were rather tame at $1.84 a gallon. You longing for the old days now yet Obama voters? How's that hopey changey thing going for you anyway?
Here's another telling video about the way things are going on the road we've been on while the Obama clan has been enjoying life on our dime. Of course the "Road We've Traveled," his new movie about himself is much different than the road we average Americans have been on.
The Road The Average American Has Been On
Yes Barack, The Frog Prince is moving into his full campaign mode. You can run son but you can't hide. No matter how you spin it, no matter who you blame the majority of us are not better off than we were four years ago. Four more years of having to even listen to your teleprompter spiel sends shivers up and down my spine.
So join the movements and campaigns and let your voices be heard throughout the land. I still remember the throng at 912 when we were chanted, "Can You Hear Us Now." It shook the building of our nation's Capitol. Of course he couldn't hear us because he ran off to Minnesota that day on a campaign trip. We now need a leader and together we will send the Campaigner-In-Chief back to the southside of Chicago where he belongs.
Hell yeah - Gas Prices Are Too Damn High and Obama is stuck in his ideologue mode while the rest of us try to cope with just a few more months with an empty suit for a President.
