Gas at $3 Per Gallon & Rising

Merry Christmas. Your gas has gone from $2.50 to $3.00 a gallon in 6 months.

According to the Financial Times [Crude Oil Could Bubble to over $100/Barrel], “The market is undergoing a ‘demand shock’ as consumption growth this year accelerates to the second-highest level in 30 years.  That surge lifted benchmark oil prices to a 26-month high of more than $90 a barrel on Tuesday.” [Full  Article: http://bit.ly/hf9HwW]


Gas could rise to between $3.25 and $3.50 a gallon by spring

HEY OBAMA, OPEN UP DRILLING AGAIN IN THE GULF OR OPEC (AND THE BOYS) WILL WRECK WHAT ECONOMIC RECOVERY THERE IS. OPEN ANWR IN ALASKA TOO!  ONCE AGAIN, YOUR FAILED POLICIES ARE WRECKING THE COUNTRY!

Another Case of Too Much Government

 

Would you shut her lemonade stand down?

7-Year-Old Girl’s Lemonade Stand Shut Down by Govt Food Inspectors

 

The entrepreneur that was the “law breaker” was Julie Murphy. Her business was a lemonade stand at the Last Thursday monthly art fair in Northeast Portland. The government regulation she violated? Failing to get a $120 temporary restaurant license. 

These govt clowns should go find a real job.  What is their salary?  What are their benefits?  Pension?  Portland must have plenty of tax dollars to waste. Over-zealous bureaucrats are now in our schools, around our businesses, and on our streets – all trying to justify their jobs.  Lay ’em off!

What a Waste of Time and Taxpayer Resources

Bruce Patterson, a Republican state senator in Michigan, said that the critical role of journalists in promoting democracy demands that they be held to certain standards, including the possession of “good moral character,” and has introduced a bill seeking to have them licensed.

According to Fox News, reporters seeking accreditation under Mr. Patterson’s bill would need the following attributes:

– “Good moral character” and demonstrate they have industry “ethics standards acceptable to the board.”  [Who’s on the board?  Who sets the standards?]

– Possession of a degree in journalism or other degree substantially equivalent.  [Most college journalism programs are liberal laced propaganda mills so why would a Republican want this?]

– Not less than 3 years experience as a reporter or any other relevant background information. [Talk about an infinite loop – you can’t practice without a license so you’ll never get your 3 years.  How stupid?]

– Awards or recognition related to being a reporter. [Awarding organizations are set up to make money for the awarder.]

– Three or more writing samples.  [Who’s going to evaluate or judge the samples?  What criteria?]

According to Fox News, Mr. Patterson has no expectation that it will go anywhere.  He said he wants to provoke discussion on the quality of reporting.

Just to let you know that I’m not a party ideologue, Mr. Patterson, why are you wasting time and taxpayer resources on this? 

Doesn’t your state have a record-setting unemployment rate?  Don’t you already have major budget problems?  Maybe you should go back to your suburb and let the state legislature do some serious work.
