Beyond Ridiculous

Posted by Non-Hamster on January 2nd, 2011

My father used to have an expression he would occasionally use to describe how difficult something was.  He'd say it was "Like playing tiddlywinks with manhole covers" which, if you're familiar with the game (no? google it), should give you a pretty good idea that whatever he was talking about was *very* difficult.

I sometimes think of that comparison these days when I hear the absolute BS coming out of Washington that says the economy is recovering. Specifically that getting a straight, truthful answer without sugar coating, doubletalk & lies to make it palatable to the voting public is like playing tiddlywinks with hot tub covers.  This is because I can't even see how *anybody* can get the idea that the economy is recovering at all.  Gasoline is back up to nearly $3.00 a gallon here locally and nationally it's averaging 15 to 20 cents a gallon higher.

Just last week a former exec of shell oil predicted that by the next election gas will hit $5.00 a gallon!  This increase in fuel prices is going to affect *EVERYTHING* as the cost of shipping stuff goes up to cover the increasing fuel prices.  That cost will be passed on to those paying for those shipments and from them it will be passed on to the consumer.

Just remember this when it comes time for the next election.  We need to get obama and his cronies out of office A.S.A.P. before they break us all.
