Two conchics but one message. First from the leggy Tina Korbe: Hot Air: This really isn’t a hard or complicated issue to understand. A wide variety of factors contribute to the price of gas. The president doesn’t have control over all of them — but he does have significant control over energy policy in the […]

Lessons for life, Don’t step on Superman’s cape and don’t piss in the girls’ room, unless you are really a girl. Great quotes in non-history: I will find the real killer or killers, if have to look on every golf course in America. O.J. Simpson. I will find the real cause of high energy prices, […]

Lots of comment this morning, centered on the Washington Post Op-Ed of yesterday, which spends it’s time destroying three basic arguments of those against offshore drilling. However, it propagates a couple barrels of snake oil. The most offensive of the lot being that drilling would not affect prices today, and that it would be years […]

Fox News: For the second day in a row, gas prices nation wide have ticked down. The decrease isn’t much, but it’s enough to give motorists hope that more could be on the horizon.

I see KSM says he’d welcome being a martyr. I would suggest burial…alive… face down down… under a pig farm. Being in a place where the pigs crap on him all day, for years and perhaps decades on end, would seem appropriate to the situation. Of course, such a solution requires being informed of where he will be […]

From Boortz, a vid of Obama telling us how he wants to disarm America. Apparently, he hasn’t leaned the lessons of Viginia Tech. Disamring people is only going to make situations like that worse… and there’s a lot of nutjobs waiting in the wings. Seems to me this suggests a backward approach to foriegn policy, as […]
