“I highly doubt that Huckabee’s radio show will “threaten” Rush’s show in the 12 n - 3 pm time slot.”

He won’t even make it to a commercial distraction. I have Bob Duko (sp?) for that!

FYI everyone... As I am an admitted “Birther” (but actually am more of “College Transcriptionist(er?)” I had to reorder my youngest son’s Birth Certificate. American Legion teams require a “raised” seal BC. Well, I ordered, online—from PA Vital Records, which farms out to a company called VitalCheck an official copy. After being made $38.00 poorer, I receive said copy. NO raised seal—but a multi-color print on state seal image...and now I have to also submit (in addition to the “copy” BC) the paperwork that i DID infact order and receive the BC...all for a soon to be 15 year old to play baseball. But...you can “occupy” the Oval Office with basically no scrutiny.

Jus thought I’d share...

Obama claiming he didn’t necessarily hear all the hate and racism coming from Jeremiah all those years is about as credible as someone attending Klan meetings for years and claiming not to have understood what was being said.

That’s a terrific way to get Holder’s attention.

Problem is, Holder will probably try to press charges against O’Keefe for something.

I listened to the tape Rush played. It’s hilarious! If Holder tried to prosecute O’Keefe that tape would be played at a trial.

The Attorney General of each State being sued by the DOJ over voter ID should subpoena a copy of O’Keefe’s tape. It is so richly ironic. God Bless O’Keefe.

I was actually able to get gas for 3.95 a gallon yesterday. But that’s because I had one of those supermarket cards that reduces the price depending on how much you spend at the supermarket. That being said, anything over a dollar a gallon makes me furious!

I have to confess that personally I am a little complacent about it (so far), only because I drive my Honda just 20 or so miles a day and just during the work week. I only fill up with gas once every 10 days or so.

My BF does the driving during the weekends, and he would be having a cow just now about the gas prices, if he didn’t drive a bi-fuel car that also runs on natural gas. CNG is about $1.79 a gallon equivalent.

We’re doing a lot of extra driving right now—so I’m filling up evey 5 days or so. I get about 23 mpg...and last week I was at about $70. Throw in tolls, and we bring lunch to kids away baseball games:(

Has anyone been affected yet by the NBPP Day of Action?

Well, I've been so absolutely consumed by these threats and hard talk that I can barely drink my coffee without spilling all over my keyboard.

....or spitting what I do get into my mouth all over the monitor.

I should really call Beck and give him directions to The Homestead to pass on to these bada$$ comicbook readers.

I won't be home until late, but if they represent anything Grandma can't handle all by herself, there's a couple old Gunnysergeants in the area who would welcome the chance to come for coffee and a little light amusement.

Our kids are grown now so we don’t have all the games to go to that we had before, and they were a LOT! But still, our SUV costs 80 dollars + to fill up now. :(

That’s got to be a drag on the economy. So you don’t eat out now at the games, just to pay for the gas.

We have a condo share on Catalina Island and the gas prices are always high. 98 % of the residents in Avalon own golf carts, those who own anything larger are either city work vehicles or are plumbers, electricians or landscapers and such. When we fill up our golf cart it’s so minimal because the miles per gallon on a golf cart is so high and there’s literally no place to go except 5 or six blocks away. 7$ a gallon is a yawner.

Hey Rush!!!

I think that instead of all the “health warning labels” on products, there should be a “tax included” warning.

I remember that so-called “excise tax” (aka monopoly) was printed on the gas pump, the stamp on the bottom of cigarette packs, and the state seal on liquor bottles included the amount of tax levied on them.

STAMP OUT HIDDEN TAXES

also — let’s have a law that requires anyone who promotes higher taxes on anyone for any reason, all the way from fed income tax down to a county dog license should lose all right to exemptions, credits, and write offs. They should have to pay the max on the gross income.

Thinking of switching to CNG myself, but until then, I am also NOT complacent on the price of gas and mostly because of the harm it does to the country as a whole. It places an undue restriction on the lives of many. I have even had parents tell me that they are removing their child from traveling sports leagues because of the cost of gas.

The last time gas was $4 a gallon, we had an extended body Chevy Trailblazer. It had a 26 gal gas tank and the summer of 08 boys played in tourneys in NY and SC. So do I ever remember the $80 per stop at the cost pump.

So when it made sense I downsized vehicle...and am once again stinging from the expensive gas. We have a supermarket here that a has fuel saver card—but the supermarket itself is more expensive (and admitted waaaay nicer than) our Wally World.

Sigh.

Last week was a killer, in addition to back and forth to work (reasonable)—two trips to northern Allegheny County—so two round trips to Butler exit of TPike (EZ Pass reload) plus two fill ups and at Sheetz (or Get Go) stop for gas equals “I’m starving!!!”.

...NOT complacent on the price of gas and mostly because of the harm it does to the country as a whole.

The "harm it does to the country" hasn't even begun for real.

The Homestead is a bit over twenty miles (one way) to town, banks, shopping, etc, so that $4.00/gallon is really starting to bite.

....and that's with the 20MPG pickups and Grandma's little SUV, plus we're a lot closer to town than practically everybody we know around here.

The trucks we use to haul livestock or crops to market are ALL diesels, get single-diget MPG and at prices nearing $5.00/gallon.....

Well, I'd advise anybody who thinks that those groceries are spendy now to get a real tight hold on their hat, 'cause the stuff is going to start hitting the fan. My best guess for that SHTF day is at most a couple of months from now, although the BIG increases might not hit until August.

It really saddens me that other parents are thinking of taking kids out of sports because of costs. We have had that conversation in our family. Our next to youngest goes to college this Fall & it’s his last “season” of “Legion” ball; youngest will be 15 and eligible to play Jr. Legion. These are not the “premier” paid coaching league...but really good baseball coached by volunteers. All games max are no more than 75 miles away...so I’ll keep juggling to make it work. Both do lawn mowing as summer jobs (older one has steady customers year to year and younger one is the helper and eventual inheritor of those yards).
