Pre-Obama Gas

I’m back in California after a long vacation, and had to fill my gas tank.  $4.05 a gallon.  It was $3.65 in Arizona two days ago.  I’ve never actually been angry before when I filled the tank.  Maybe seeing it go up gradually had innoculated me.  When Obama was elected, gas was around $1.75 a gallon on average (in the country, not in California).  I think I’m going to start mentioning that to all my liberal friends, to remind them of just how rough these last four years have been.  Apparently, high unemployment isn’t enough to change votes.


About Mystic Cowgirl

I worked overseas in the aid game for longer than I'd like to admit and learned several important things: 1) Third World countries aren't poor because America is rich. They're impoverished due to socialist governments that provide neither rule of law nor basic infrastructures; 2) These socialist governments redistribute wealth from taxpayers to the government workers. There's no benefit to the poor or downtrodden, and certainly not to the general welfare in terms of infrastructure improvements. 3) America is moving toward the Third World model. Rule of law has been subverted because equality under the law is disappearing as special interests carve out exemptions to regulations and special favors under the law. The redistribution of wealth to government began decades ago -- total compensation for government employees now outpaces salaries in the private sector.
