Democrats’ Gas Tax Gimmick Is Beyond Stupid

Original Article

Posted By: ladydawgfan, 2/23/2022 1:13:53 PM

Except in the months preceding a crucial midterm election, today’s Democrats would argue that high gas prices are a good thing. They see gas prices as a Pigouvian tax on fossil fuels that accelerate the shift to renewable “green” energy. Regulatory and legislative actions such as killing the Keystone Pipeline early last year, and closing off federal lands for oil drilling, were made by the Biden Administration and its congressional cohorts knowing full well such decisions would raise gas prices for consumers. Democrats were okay with that, until their polling numbers began dipping into the frigid zone.


I just paid more than $20 for SIX gallons of gas, or less than half a tank. My dad just filled his car up for more than $50. This is about TWICE what we paid when Donald Trump was in office! The Congressional leftists can shove their "gas tax holiday" somewhere dark and hairy!! Sheesh!! Talk about throwing crumbs to the peasants!!

Democrats want fossil fuel prices high to make wind and solar energy prices competitive. Expect gasoline rationing in the near future, just like we had in the ‘70s. And President Abe Simpson giving fireside chats in a sweater like Jimmy Carter.

OP, you have it comparatively good. Here in Central California it is hard to find 87 octane for less than $4.59. In the Bay area, it is even worse. FJB.

Gee, how will the Democrats pay for this tax cut? Isn't that the question they ask? More deficit spending and borrowing...but what are billions compared to TRILLIONS being spend mindlessly?

What if two years ago, when COVID-19 first hit these shores, our politicians hadn't panicked? What if the government did what it has done every time we were confronted with a deadly virus, such as the Spanish flu or polio? Instead of locking down our schools, churches and businesses, the government could have simply informed citizens of the risks of getting sick and urged people to be extra careful about hygiene, stay out of crowded places and protect the vulnerable. It turns out there was one country that mostly rejected lockdowns and let life go on as normal as possible under dire circumstances. That country was Sweden.

Happy Tuesday, dear Kruiser Morning Briefing friends. The dress code has been amended to include ascots and Crocs, but never together. One of the best arguments for colonizing the moon and Mars is that there would be someplace to get away to when this world gets crazy. On the off chance that you haven’t been outside in while, I would like to pass along the fact that the world is, at present, a little Froot Loops. If someone had written a novel describing the last two years, critics would have panned it as a dystopian effort that was just a little too over the top.

When he does and it is against a fraud like Elizabeth Warren of Taxachusetts, it is just so enjoyable to watch.

Financier and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein died in a Manhattan prison in August of 2019 under very mysterious circumstances. He was awaiting trial on additional charges when he supposedly committed “suicide” by hanging himself, although he told a prison psychologist, he would never take his own life. To make matters even more suspicious, the video of his cell during the time of his death was conveniently “lost.” The prison guards on duty that night were reportedly playing video games and asleep, (Snip)This convenient “suicide” has now been followed by another one less than three years later.

Some years ago, your favorite, quasi-anonymous political writer made his debut on Sean Hannity’s primetime show. Sure, it was only a brief mention of my article’s premise, alongside a screenshot of the headline, but for that moment, I transcended…something. The article in question was titled “Joe Biden Produces a Word Salad So Bad It’ll Make You Question Everything.” And while it seems almost quaint now, having been written prior to the 2020 election, it remains no less instructive today, serving as a reminder of just how far gone Biden was — even during the campaign. Behold, the man who would go on to become the current President of the United States.

The protesters in Ottawa are hoping to make it through the weekend until the Senate convenes. They want to make it to Monday because the Emergencies Act has to be approved by the Parliament within seven days of it being called for, which was on February 14. So it has to be approved by tomorrow. They are hoping that the legislators will not approve it, the police will back off, and the Parliament will address their concerns. There were still hundreds of protesters out Saturday in Ottawa, more even than there were earlier when there was a lot of police action against them.
Why Presidents’ Day Matters 18 replies

Presidents’ Day is one of those uniquely American holidays. As such, it is under scrutiny and condemnation of the anti-American Left. Honoring men, white men for that matter, who engaged in colonization and racism, the argument goes ad nauseum, is bad. Shame on us who honor these despicable men. The condemnation of Washington, and even Lincoln, fails to miss a broader and bigger story that their inspirational memory is meant to reveal: the growth of liberty and equality in the United States that Washington helped give birth to and that Lincoln helped to preserve and expand. Focusing on the detriments of Washington and Lincoln as individuals obscures the bigger story

Are you "white"? If you go to the paint store and ask for white paint, does the paint match your skin color? If you put your arm against a white appliance, does it look the same? If you are naked in a snowstorm, do you become completely camouflaged? If you put your hand in a copy machine does a blank page come out? No it doesn't, because you aren't white, you are more of a harvest peach. Does that make you "Caucasian"?

It has often been said that the Republican Party is the “party of old white men.” Indeed, when one looks at the party’s makeup, one can easily see why this moniker has persisted for so many decades. However, there are signs that times are a-changing, and the conservative movement is beginning to look a little different. Newsweek’s Steve Friess wrote an article titled “GOP Bets on Black Conservatives As Key to Victory: ‘We Change or We Die,’” in which he detailed the increasing prevalence of black conservatives running for office as Republicans.

The former president also urged Americans to embrace any economic pain that they would suffer

The Utah Republican blamed Russian President Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine on a decade and more of U.S. weakness, also alluding to former President Donald Trump’s foreign-policy slogan. “Putin’s impunity predictably follows our tepid response to his previous horrors in Georgia and Crimea, our naive efforts at a one-sided ‘reset’ and the shortsightedness of ‘America First,’” he said.

That has now been confirmed by none other than Vladimir Putin himself. Per an announcement from the Russian president, his military forces are moving into greater Ukraine, including Kyiv, in order to “demilitarize” and “denazify” the sovereign nation. None of this is hypothetical anymore. Explosions are being heard in multiple Ukrainian cities. It is clear that a major military attack is underway. Putin also levied some disturbing threats against the west, seeming to suggest he would be willing to use nuclear weapons

I guess we’ll get a chance to see if the American left can be as tyrannical and authoritarian as Canada’s ruling Liberal Party has been. The Capitol Police is getting ready to flex its authoritarian muscles already. “Law enforcement agencies across the National Capital Region are aware of plans for a series of truck convoys arriving in Washington, DC around the time of the State of the Union.

What do Russian collusion, Hunter Biden's laptop, and Covid-19 vaccine mandates all have in common? They are all misinformation spread by the American propaganda media. The very young often fantasize that they will perform some great accomplishment that benefits humankind when they get older. A field that offers that kind of personal reward is journalism, having over 6,500 individuals employed in the United States. Many enter journalism knowing that the financial rewards may not be as attractive as other vocations, but the impact on society can be significant.

At least one criminal case that Democrat activists filed against Trump may be ending with a whimper. You may recall that there’s a criminal fraud case against Trump in Manhattan. To the New York Times’s manifest despair, it seems that there is no evidence of an actual crime. Things are so bad that two of the lead prosecutors on the case quit when the District Attorney expressed serious doubt in the case. In 2018, Cyrus Vance, Jr., Manhattan’s then-District Attorney, charged the Trump Organization and its chief financial officer, Allen Weisselberg, with tax fraud allegedly related to overvaluing properties to obtain bank loans.
