If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

Strange. Haven't heard any complaining from forons or the LSM as gas rockets to $3.50/gal. 'Course the gulf is shut-down thanks to the Bamster. We better hope the Middle East settles down or we may see $5 by summer.

Right....the giant BP oil spill had nothing to do with it.

Of course I would prefer to pay as little for gas as possible. But, if the end result in the Middle East is that the people there get to enjoy the same rights that we take for granted....morally I think I've got to be willing to be inconvenienced a little. Ned's view, sadly, is probably more typical.

I thought Ned meant Emeril Lagasse. Man, keeping up with morons is amazingly hard work.

A hamster who pounds on the sides of his cage when he wants more pellets?

Face it. Non-Fox-watchers have no idea what you Teaps are talking about half the time in your alternate universe. You're only talking to yourselves, that's for sure.

Had to google that one. I think "President" Balrog Hussein Sombrero Fartbongo might be the most awesomely indicting parody Fark has ever spawned.

Sorry, but not feeling the full-blown 50 page thread panic last time gas was in this territory and it was the fault of "Bush".

Just sayin'

Oh that's what you meant. I wasn't aware that "peep"="full-blown 50 page thread panic". You should try being more specific and less of a rotten douche bag.

Don't like the high gas prices?
Ride the bus.
Ride a bike.
Boom. Problem solved.

(As an avid bike rider/Very rare death monster driver, I love love love seeing gas prices rise! Serves the death monster drivers right.)
