Sincere words for those who voted for President Obama.

I decided to write this because of the one issue that is finally bringing negatives to our President. The pain at the pump. The last week sure has been rough on BHO. I can think of a list of other things, but, I’ll stick with what’s working now.

I really have to hand it to you all for not bitching and moaning about the giant price hike in gas prices. At least on FB. You may have complained privately, with your family at the supper table or at the workplace.

You have kept it pretty much to yourselves, that’s commendable. I’m sure on a daily basis you have found the stories posted by me and others about said gas prices. I’m sure you may have wanted to comment, or maybe this FB thing isn’t your outlet to voice your opinion on the matter.

Which is cool, to each is own. I have a few thoughts on the matter, I’m sure your very aware of.( I can see you rolling your eyes right about now…)

No, I think you O voters don’t comment because you really can’t. I mean all through his run for POTUS in ’07 & ’08 he was really, really honest.

He actually had the balls to say, energy prices would skyrocket under his term. He was not shy about the need to push for “alternative” energy. For those who insist on using coal, and fossil fuels, well, they are going to find it more expensive.

You all remember that don’t you? You must, because that is why you have accepted  the higher costs in our food and other goods.

Man, driving to vacation spots, sporting events and concerts this year will be even more costly from last year and the year before that, and the year before that.

I admit that, there were some things out of his control that have aided in the price hike. We did have that nasty spill a couple years back that started in the spring and didn’t get capped until many months later. Why did it take so long to cap that oil leak?

Hmmm. Looking back, I don’t recall the urgency to get it fixed. Oh well. He did what he thought best by canceling all deep and shallow drilling until they could find solutions to the problem. That didn’t work out so well.

Now, when fuel prices go above $ 4.00 a gallon around here, there maybe some chinks in the” Defend Obama” armor start to show. Everyone has a threshhold of just how much crap they are willing to take. Will we see it?  Ehh, maybe.

In closing I’ll say this again. I’m somewhat impressed in your restraint, about something as serious as our energy costs.

I know if my guy was not able to come up with policies to help the poor and minorities in this country that really suffers because of the high prices, I’d be wondering if I was wrong giving him my vote.

A face only the really caring could love…

Oil Prices, Oil Prices and Oil Prices

Did you hear the latest oil discovery in Montana? Probably not. For some strange reason, the nightly news do not seem to think this is a top story. I’ll give you 3 guesses to figure it out and the first 2 don’t count.

In Montana there is enough oil to off set our pain at the pump. Michigan, Louisiana and California can also make the same claim. Those states are in a budget shortfall, this is your get out of debt fast, card. Oil is the way out. Oh, don’t forget the Nuke programs too.

So, why are we sitting on all this oil and doing nothing about it? 3 words, Politics, Politics and Politics. I could also blame the EPA, environmentalists  and the goofball Hollywood types.

I’ll pick on Harrison Ford.  He has a home in beautiful Montana, he left the California lifestyle to get away from it all. Good for him. Trouble is, he brought that Hollywood way of thinking too.

He says don’t ruin the state parks and pristine land that he enjoys. Well Harry, its like this. Not everyone can boast about having 8 top grossing movies of all time on their resume. I know you can handle 5 bucks a gallon for gas.

We can’t!  So,  please give us a break will ya?

After 50 plus years under the Liberal way of funding and implementing social programs, Its time we let a conservative way of doing things take over. Now, I don’t want some half ass concessions, that the Left usually give.

They either give us a short time frame to fix it, or they only let some of the ideas in and with little funding.  After giving us the keys and letting us do what we want, lets look at the results and see whose ideas actually worked.  That’s only fair.

Unions. Have you considered maybe you have fulfilled your purpose and you no longer are needed?  Unions claim to be for workers rights. Yet, they won’t grant the biggest right of all. THE RIGHT TO WORK!  I’ll let you think about that one.

Here is a solution for public workers and their right to bargain against the tax payers. If  you guys would give up the Unions, the dues that you will keep should more than cover the shortfall in your benefit coverage.  I call that a push. Let’s get on that.

It’s funny that the lead singer for the band “Rage against the Machine” is speaking in support of the Wisconsin public workers. Why?

Well this is the same person who was at a benefit for a convicted cop killer, I’m sure the police in Wisconsin would want to question his feelings towards a cop killer. The Left’s hypocrisy knows no bounds!

Last word.  The Community Organizer In Chief sure has a lot of energy for rounding up protests in other states. Sad, he cannot use that energy to focus on the country’s economy, high food and gas prices.
