This comic in the Austin paper made me want to go turn every stinkin’ halogen light in my house on. I resisted for the sake of my energy bill.
Meanwhile, down the street, despite a surplus, gas went up another ten cents.
Another year goes by and we hunker down – prepared to keep both of our vehicles when they are paid off soon… no new cars for us. I’ll be driving mine until the bolts rust and the doors fall off.
We’ll need the car note money to pay for the gas price increase and cost of living increase. In case you hadn’t noticed, all the goods in the country are more expensive since gas has made the price of transport and shipping go up. Don’t know about you, but are you suffering at the grocery store lately? Remember a day when you didn’t HAVE to clip coupons?
How these stupid light bulbs and cap & trade taxes are going to help the economy, no-body knows. Sorry, but the economy is a bit more important to me than some rare albino salamander in the Edward’s Aquifer. Or the doomsdayist global warming alarmism (that’s an incomplete sentence ON PURPOSE). Not to say I don’t love nature, I do… but using nature as a tool to suck the food off of my table with extra taxes is just low-down and dirty politics. It’s the thing that revolutions are made of. Tea and taxes. Government growing too big for their breeches.
I say ‘keep your ugly, unnatural, blue light bulbs and your fingers out of my wallet‘.
Let the American people alone so we can get on with the business of living – free from tyranny and oppression… free from insatiable, corrupt Government greed.
That is all.
Sorry for the soap box. I need to get on one at least once every five or six months. Consider yourself lathered.
