I don't propose to be an expert on the economy. But I know that something is seriously wrong with our country. I am only an average citizen that is paying close attention to our personal finances. Our costs just keep going up and up. It's especially noticeable when buying groceries and at the gas pump. It now takes over $65 to fill my gas tank and I don't even have what is commonly called a "gas hog". Heck, my Suzuki V-Strom costs over $15 to fill now! At least it gets 65+ mpg but I can't run all my errands on the bike. Gas has climbed 20 cents in one week! We are now at an average of $3.69 a gallon (at this moment). Could be higher by the time I hit the Publish Post button. This ecomony is far worse than living under Jimmy Carter and I lived through that one.
And O'Bummer been liein' ... again. He said in a recent address: "... we (America) consumes 20% of the fuel in the world and only have 2% in reserves". THAT'S A LIE MR. OBAMA! The Congressional Res. Service estimates that we have at least 145.5 BILLION barrels of crude oil within our reach (off shore, under the soil, etc.). That's not counting natural gas. This is enough to last us for at least 250 years or more. (1) The problem is not the muslims overseas, the problem is the muslim in the White House. So far he has personally shut down everything that comes across his desk to allow us to prosper. He won't permit oil drilling, he won't permit oil to be imported, he won't permit ... us to live free!
Also, in other news ...
We will, quite possibly, find this guy stuffed in a dumpster in Chicago one day. Here's a video of Larry Sinclair describing his homosexual fling with Obama back in 1999.(2) I blogged about this subject before but haven't seen the video until today. Yep, O'Bummer is as pure as the driven (cocaine) snow!
I can't afford much more of this Dope's Change.
