    Just got reminded this is an old strip, re-run… Four bucks is within spittin’ distance, and not about to get better. My next car’s gotta be an electric!

    Right now my gas is closer to $3 than $4 but it will only take one speculator to blow the top of those prices in a heartbeat (or is that heart attack?).

    I’ll bet my Marin Muirwoods gets better mileage than whatever you drive. If you don’t like gas prices, try driving less. I haven’t had a car in 20 years, I have a wife and small child and we live in a small city. Rationalize why you can’t give up your pollution mobile. Is that machine your servant or your master?

    He reminds me of Fred Sanford faking a heart attack: “You hear that, Elizabeth? I’m coming to join ya, honey!”

    See, that was the plan all along. Algore and the other Watermelons are trying to get rid of the internal combustion engine. Gas prices are going to keep going up and up until everyone gives in and buys an electric. And the added bonus is that because of the stratispheric prices of electric cars, the poor won’t have cars allowing even tighter control over their movements. Bonus !!!

    That would be great if everything was within walking distance. I drive 30 minutes one way to work everyday. Try that on your bike. I would have to leave yesterday to get work on time.

    That ain’t nothing. My medical premiums are going up over $300 a month in Jan. Now that’s getting jacked

    As for a real recovery – forget it. There’s no evidence of it. Unemployment is getting worse. Housing is still going down. Profits are going down. Those aren’t the things that presage a recovery…they herald a deeper, darker depression.

    The depression darkens because people are not just being laid off – their jobs are disappearing. They do not get called back to work. Instead, they stay unemployed until they run out of unemployment benefits…and then the statisticians in Washington drop them off the unemployment rolls. Currently, the first batch of those people to reach the end of their benefits came this week. Last we looked, the Pennsylvania legislature was passing a law so they could continue drawing benefits for a few weeks more.

    We’ve mentioned John Williams and his excellent service called Shadow Government Statistics. He looks at the numbers and figures out how they are twisted and tortured…and then figures out what they would be if they were treated properly. Currently, the unemployment rate nationwide officially is almost 10%. But if you computed the unemployment numbers the way they did back in the Great Depression, Williams says one in five people are out of work. In some places the figure is as high as one in four.

    In other words, the unemployment numbers are already beginning to look like those of the Great Depression. But that’s true of almost all the numbers. They’ve all got a ’30s era look to them. And if you stopped water boarding them, they’d tell a similar story. Almost all the indicators are worse than any we’ve seen since WWII.

    My next car is going to be a horse. They are cheaper in the long run.

    Someone will have to follow you, or a bag put on the horse, as you go.
