Fuck Off Friday

Ahhhh. It's been such a long time since I did one of these. And sadly, I've already mentioned this sorry fuck before, but well, you can never tell him to fuck off often enough.

Sez the Senate Majority Leader:Help Democrats Lower Gas Prices Now
Today, Democrats proposed an amendment to provide immediate relief to consumers. The amendment introduced by Senator Menendez will provide more than $6 billion in relief directly to the American people by eliminating the federal tax for both gas and diesel for 60 days. During the period of this gas tax holiday, the cost of gas will be reduced by $0.184 per gallon and the cost of diesel by $0.244 per gallon. We will pay for this tax cut by eliminating tax breaks and giveaways to big oil.
WOW!!! A whole 18 cents per gallon! WOOHOO!!! A 5% drop in price!!!

I won't even make an extra trip to the hardware store for a 10% sale. Jeebus kreebus.

And on top of that, here in Nevada we have a revised statute that says something along the lines of any cut in federal fuel tax must be made up by an increased state fuel tax. So we here in the Silver State would end up with no price break anyway.

Now it wouldn't surprise me if other states do the same thing too. As greedy as it sounds, the reasoning is this. There are road projects budgeted, funds allotted, and even work in progress that are relying on money being there. Since the federal government matches certain amounts of highway funds for each state (which comes from fuel taxes), that money won't be there. So now it's up to the state to pay the money they budgeted for the shit.

So what it amounts to is just more attempted feel good bullshit from the same old sorry-assed senator from Nevada - who you would think would already know about this statute and know that it would do no good.

This same sorry-assed senator says "It's all Bush's fault" when it comes to fuels costs, but yet is dead set against oil drilling or refining domestically, clean burning coal fired power plants, or even nuclear power.

So with that I say,

Harry Reid

Oh, and did I mention he's trying to do away with term limits? Yup, gone to the supreme court and everything! That's right. He doesn't want to leave the senate because he has too much left undone.

My personal belief is that term limits were designed for a reason. And the sooner he's gone the better.

I notice that the bill was introduced by our douchebag senator and former Hudson County (where corruption is a fine art) Boss Bob Menendez. Consider him for a future "Fuck Off," that is unless Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Christie doesn't have his sorry ass indicted first.
