    A Little Easter Humor 

    After the Annual Easter Egg Hunt at Conservative Girl’s house today, I had to explain to an 11 year-old about inflation.  You see the Golden Egg that she was lucky enough to find was worth only $10 this year as opposed to $20 last year (when she wasn’t lucky enough to find).  Never too young to learn about economics and the facts of life. Life isn’t fair. Deal with it.

    Nearing $5 gas in Chicago. Obama Approval Plunges. Hold your Horses 

    Chicago Breaking News, with mitigating greenie and mass transit plugs for The One. Of course much of the country can’t get to work using mass transit and greenie cars are expensive, impractical in the cold and over distance, not to mention having to charge up with electricity probably powered by coal plants.

    …For most of us a horse is not an option. And even in Chicago where some view them romantically other picky urbanites protest.

    More here.

      “Carter-esque” is a word that comes to mind.

      I have never fully understood why we blame the President for gas prices. I didn’t blame Bush several years ago. We do need to do more of our drilling, but it seems that neither party is willing to do this.

      Yeah, it’s Carter all over again.

      Well, yes, JACS, I understand–Bush wasn’t really aggressive on this because he was sensitive to being accused by the left of being an oil man with conflicts of interest, etc. very silly. But he did push for ANWR and some more drilling approval which is bearing fruit now. Obama gets blame because he is actively ANTI-drilling and especially his atrocious handling of the BP oil spill. BP execs were his buddies and they are a sloppy oil company–they contracted everything out. As I understand it the major oil companies are much more careful with life, fewer accidents, and with their engineering methods–they own the whole process and are responsible.
