There is a delivery guy where I work who spends a lot of his time driving around to deliver packages for us. He’s also our company’s taxi service and recently picked up an Aussie colleague of mine. On the trip back from the airport, Aussie asked him if he thought Obama was good for America. Aussie had no idea that he had just rung the Beck Bell since Taxi Guy is a Beck Worshipper to the nth degree.
After ranting for awhile about socialistwheresthebirthcertificateKenyanusuper, Taxi Guy then proceeded to explain to Aussie that the reason that gas prices have gone up in America is because “Obama wants gas to be expensive”.
Aussie chuckled to himself since gas prices in the USA are some of the lowest on the planet.
I, of course, was embarrassed that Aussie’s first interaction after getting into town was with Taxi Guy. Then I shook my head. Clearly Taxi Guy doesn’t know this.
Exxon Mobil reported a first-quarter profit Thursday of $10.7 billion, a 69 percent jump from the year before as higher crude oil prices, fatter U.S. oil refining and marketing margins, and a revival in global demand for petrochemicals boosted earnings.
Royal Dutch Shell also reported higher profits. Excluding one-time items and inventory gains, Shell earned $6.3 billion, up 30 percent from the first quarter of 2010 even as production dropped 3 percent.
Big Oil is reaping record profits while the rest of the country is still recovering from a major recession. But Taxi Guy the Beck Worshipper thinks it’s President Obama’s fault that gas prices are “high”.
Now, it’s not like this news is a secret. It’s pretty well-known. It’s just another example of willfully ignorance. These are people we need to simply write off because they will NEVER get past their racism and their hatred of all things liberal.
I just wish I didn’t have to listen to them. And that they weren’t seen as in any representing our country. Or that they had any sort of political power at all.
One of these days, the rational people of this country are going to wake up and take back the reins of power. Either that or I’m moving to Europe.
I’m just sayin’…
