Yesterday I was reading the Washington Post's Express. It had an article, I think it was on the front page, with some comments W. made about gas. He said he is going to open the emergency oil supply in order to lower gas prices. He emphasized that it is an emergency supply so people should limit their use of gas as much as possible (i.e. car pooling, public transportation, etc.) I have about four problems with this. 1)did anybody else know we had an emergency oil supply? 2)Why wasn't this alleged supply released sometime in the past two months since gas has been like $5 a gallon 3) Since I've read the article about the supply being opened to reduce gas prices, I've only noticed an increase in the prices. 4) W. lives right here in D.C. and doesn't know what's going on in his own backyard. The subway is already packed. Nobody's driving anywhere. That's a lie, people are driving. They're driving to the subway so that they can go to work to pay for the gas it takes to drive to the subway. That's the end of my ranting for the day but I do want to share an e-mail my friend sent me. This is a statement Bill Maher made:

Mr. President, this job can't be fun for you anymore. There's no more money to spend. You used up all of that. You can't start another war because you also used up the army. And now, darn the luck, the rest of your term has become the Bush family nightmare: helping poor people.
Yeah, listen to your mom. The cupboard's bare, the credit card's maxed out, and no one is speaking to you: mission accomplished! Now it's time to do what you've always done best: lose interest and walk away. Like you did with your military service. And the oil company. And the baseball team. It's time. Time to move on and try the next fantasy job. How about cowboy or spaceman?!
Now, I know what you're saying. You're saying that there's so many other things that you, as president, could involve yourself in…Please don't. I know, I know, there's a lot left to do. There's a war with Venezuela, and eliminating the sales tax on yachts.Turning the space program over to the church. And Social Security to Fannie Mae. Giving embryos the vote. But, sir, none of that is going to happen now. Why? Because you govern like Billy Joel drives. You've performed so poorly I'm surprised you haven't given yourself a medal. You're a catastrophe that walks like a man.
Herbert Hoover was a shitty president, but even he never conceded an entire metropolis to rising water and snakes.
On your watch, we've lost almost all of our allies, the surplus, four airliners, two Trade Centers, a piece of the Pentagon and the City of New Orleans…Maybe you're just not lucky! I'm not saying you don't love this country. I'm just wondering how much worse it could be if you were on the other side. So, yes, God does speak to you, and what he's saying is, "Take a hint."

One Response so far.

  1. Hey Akeda,
    although I'm loving these politically center, informative blogs (you sound like a journalist already...and a good one at that), why not tell us something about you. We've talked about it before, you need to let some of it out. I know you want to save the world, but I'm going to need you to make sure your saving your self. How am I going to make it without my mastermind?
