I suspect McCarthy is going to announce he will have another "talk" with Greens.
Prediction if the GOP gets the house, McCarthy will be an incredibly weak leader.

It sounds familiar in the context of current events. I once heard a person explaining the Russian way of thinking with a joke that goes more or less like this: An angel comes down to a farmer and says "I'll grant you any wish you want, no matter how extravagant. The only hitch is that whatever I give you, I'll give double to your neighbor." The farmer replies, "OK, put one of my eyes out."

MTG's "Surrender Dorothy" message to the Ukraine makes me wonder if she is not getting some rubles depositied in a offshore bank account.

Her hero Donny is, so she would like some too. After all, there's all those anti-masking penalties to pay in Congress.

But they are mostly fictional Nazis. I seem to recall they got under 2% of the vote.

It's a really good sign that reading is not their thing.

Well, no. I recall back when Sarah Brady was diagnosed with cancer. Some people on gun forums were saying things like, "why doesn't die from cancer like everyone else?". That was also in poor taste.

Right wingers do not like Nazis, but they do like Nazi ideology. They just don't want to be associated with the name "Nazi", otherwise, they really love Nazism.

That 'women' is beyond stupid.

Love it, but I doubt it will go anywhere. I hope I'm wrong. If MTG is disqualified, it would mean several prominent GOP Congress members would be affected.

I just rewatched "Evita" (and I still think Antonio Bandaras stole the film from Madonna) and there is one line that fits MTG perfectly:
'She did'nt say much but she said it loud".

A friend sent me this. They pulled up to get gas today and the person before them had just driven off after only being able to afford a little more than 1 gallon of gas. This is how bad Biden’s skyrocketing inflation and high gas prices are hurting people. emptyg's congressional Twitter account
Below is a screen cap of the image emptyg is blathering about. A gas pump with $4.10 / 1.025 gals registered. Implying, someone went to the gas station with four bucks, figuring that would be enough for plenty gas. ??? Only then they found out! BIDEN!!!!

Most likely, somebody just needed to mow the lawn.

Remember when Gingrich guaranteed that if Obama was reelected in 2012 gas would be $10.00 a gallon? Neither does the Newt.
Anyhow, what's wrong with high oil prices? Big oil companies are going to make a killing and US production will go up.

It could also spur more people to buy electric/hybrid cars. If I were in the market for a new car, that's what I'd buy. Since my husband and I don't drive very much anymore and only fill up about every couple months, the high prices don't affect us much. But they do severely affect truckers which affects the cost of goods and those who have to drive a lot for work, etc.

Canada is higher than the US, but not as high as Europe.

European gas prices are brutal.

MTG is an idiot as usual.

^^ This. I have a 1 gallon gas can for the lawn mower, also.

Anyway, if a picture is worth a thousand words, the only thing this picture tells us is how much someone paid for a gallon of gas. Which, apparently, is 50 cents a gallon less than at my local station.

The possibility someone came to the station with a one gallon can to get gas to cut the grass is beyond her grasp.

I've never heard anyone say this but, adjusted for inflation (7+%), it's not actually higher than the past record. Not like that makes it any better, mind you.

Norman Alexander 27th March 2022 07:09 PM

It's still not at the record set in July 2008: $5.37 (adjusted for inflation). But even then, it was obviously Democrat Republican President Biden's Shrub's fault.

Quote:

Adjusted for inflation the real cost of a gallon of gas from July 2008 shoots up to $5.37 in today's dollars—well above the current cost of $4.318 per gallon.

I know this. You know this. Anyone with more than two brain cells to rub together knows this. But that lets the GOP base out; they'll continue to believe the high gas prices are Biden's/Democrats' fault while believing Trump/Republicans will put everything to right and gas will fall to $1.00 a gallon.

Jim_MDP 27th March 2022 08:45 PM

Can't find it in my phone history but today I saw an article with map graphic (WaPo?) showing the price vs average monthly wage at ~1.5% in the US; a tad higher in Canada; ~ 2 in Gb; 3 to 5 in most of the western EU; much of the third world around 15 to 20 percent and some of the N African middle east hitting the top at... 39 percent

Yeah .. I'm not really impressed by Americans complaining about four dollar gallons of gasoline. :(

Does it impact industry and especially freight companies? Yes, absolutely.
But we all should know where the profits are going. There's only one sector gouging the prices, in the US at least, and it's the death of a thousand cuts... a fraction of a cent extra means millions in net gain. What is a ~15% jump doing for the oil companies?

Correct.

According to Global Petrol Prices, over the past four months from December 13 to March 14, the price of a litre of gasoline in Canada ranged from a low of $C 1.37/litre ($US 5.72/US gallon) in Nova Scotia to a high of $C 2.07/litre ($US 6.28/US gallon) In Québec, at today's exchange rate. Here in Winnipeg it's about $1.73/litre ($US 5.25/US gallon.)

Also correct.

Of course in here "mind" it's Biden. Nevermind the fact that most of the money supply expansion driving current inflation came in May 2020 in order to Prop up Trump's economic numbers.

I wonder why they would post a picture of the pump instead of the 2 foot high numbers on the sign out front of most gas stations stating the price per gallon.

Is this some QAnon code?
