Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

According to Steven Chu, gas at $4 per gallon isn't expensive enough. Obama's Central Planners are determined to put us all into Chevy Volt Flaming Firetrap Golf Carts Of Doom, and if that means millions of Americans suffer because gas prices keep soaring, well that's the whole point.
"For the president, expensive energy that depresses all Americans' standards of living isn't a bug, it's a feature."
Steven Chu is the Secretary of Energy. But he may as well be the Secretary of Magic Fairy Dust, because instead of looking for ways to cut gas prices, he's futzing around with batteries.
Instead, DOE is working to promote alternatives such as biofuels and electric vehicles, Chu told House appropriators during a hearing on DOE's budget.
Guess what, that whole algae schtick? That was real. It's their plan. That and batteries. Rechargeable batteries. Which need electricity. You know, the stuff Obama's EPA is making scarcer than condoms at Georgetown. Almost as expensive, too.
Let's face it, rechargeable batteries suck. A lot. They lose their charge faster than a Georgetown coed drops her pants. (ba-da-bing!) And they take forever and a day to recharge. You don't know how many times I've gone to use my digital camera only to see the dreaded "change the batteries" message on its screen. It's frustrating to the max. My new BlackBerry is fantastic, so long as I keep it in close proximity to the charger. And Sophie's laptop? Don't get me started on how crummy the batteries are in Sophie's laptop.
Anyway, where was I? Oh yeah, gas prices. Unless America is smart enough to vote these wankers out in November, gas will be north of $5 a gallon forever. Central planners hate cars. They hate suburbs too. According to them everybody should live in nice, neat, small eco-boxes stacked in ergonomically-designed cities. And of course, ride the bus to work. The farthest anyone should venture is about 25 miles, which it turns out is the out-and-back range of the aforementioned Government Motors Chevy Volt Flaming Firetrap Golf Cart Of Doom.
What they really despise is freedom. The freedom to go wherever we please, whenever we want. How can they effectively control a mobile population? They can't. So the goal is to make the population as stationary as possible, and then we'll go where they say we can go, at a time when they decide, and only if our papers are in order.
Cheap gas made this country what it is today. Is taking that away from us the
Hope and Change you were looking for?
