Strange Brouhaha

$100: Thanks, but no thanks.

This plan that the politicians in Washington have to give everyone $100 because of the high gas prices...what a bunch of (you'll pardon my French) fuckin' retards. If the money comes from Exxon, then okay--their $36 billion dollar profits are ample enough to give every driver in American $100 and have billions left over--but it's not going to come from Exxon. It's going to come from the taxes that you and I pay. I don't want to pay myself $100 like some moron.

And what does it fix? It doesn't lower gas prices. It doesn't increase our national investment in renewable energy. It doesn't stop price gouging. It doesn't do ANYTHING.

It's like putting a Band-Aid on a broken leg.
