Out of the Blue

Today is Yom Kippur, which began at sundown last night. This is a day of atonement, so "happy" Yom Kippur is not appropriate: I think the proper sentiment is to wish all of you commemorating this a good an easy fast. While this is not my holiday, I'm sure I have some atoning to do, so I'll try to keep this in mind along the way.

Obama has already said he likes high gas prices, helps push his green agenda and ideas for creating things like carbon taxes for the manufactored global warming schtick the libs have going for themselves.

I like high gas prices. Gasoline is a dead end. Higher prices drive new technologies to get us to where we need to go. The run up in oil prices in 2008 is driving the current crop of hybrids and electrics. If not for that, we'd be seeing much less development and adoption. Despite that, the USA already has some of the lowest gas prices in the world outside of Venezuela and Saudi Arabia, where gas is heavily subsidized. And being forced to buy oil from regimes that hate us threatens our national security. Whatever you think of global warming, getting off of gasoline is good for a multitude of other reasons.

Yea for command economies!

pot=bad

gas=bad

meat=bad

sterility=good

war=peace

poverty=plenty

etc. etc. etc.
