My Sympathies To You Californians - You Get What You Deserve!

When you elect idiot progressive/liberals to office time after time after time, do not be surprised when they do this to you every time.

Next year you are due to have MASSIVE increases in your gasoline prices. You already have the highest in the country because of progressive/liberal looniness. And just because someone is a RINO, that does not mean that they are not mindless progressive/liberals.

But you ain't seen nothin' yet!

Some Democrats are running away from the law that will hit you next year trying to delay it until after this fall's elections.

But that changes nothing.

Enjoy you high and going higher gas prices.

You deserve them!

;-)

California Pols Have Legislated a Big Gasoline Increase

"With the confidence busting effect of watching the price gauge at the gas pump, elected officials prefer avoiding gas prices as an election year issue. Adding to the anxiety is how little control any one elected official has over gas prices.

But this election year, California's state leaders are engaged in a gas price debate that is entirely their own doing.

96 percent of California's transportation relies on petroleum"

Start planning now so you know which days you are going without food in order to put gas in your car.

I would say that many of our politicians are "goofballs". Good word.

What I don't understand is why our electorate thinks that somehow they can get something for nothing? And how can we provide services and more services, creating a dependent underclass, without having more and more taxes? Eventually people don't want to be taxed anymore. Businesses have been leaving the state in droves, taking jobs away. Why our politicians cannot see it, or do not care, I do not understand? Our electorate, nor our politicians seem to understand is that you can and should only spend what you have. The financial dimension escapes them.

About, oh, 3 years ago, I went on a vacation with the soon to be ex and the kids to NoCal. We stopped in Sacramento and took the Capital tour. It was nice. During the tour, the guide mentioned that 85% of the General Assembly were Dems, with 15% as "other", mostly Reps. I have heard our fool governor mention "Republican Obstructionism." I don't see how, when the legislators are basically all Dems?

johnnyg, "Why would anyone make up gas prices on GasBuddy?"

Exactly!

And that is why I asked BuzzLOL if he was " sure you want to stick with your claim that gas prices were "$4.50 - $5 Summer 2008, EvilBushJr.'s last Summer in office...""

And why I told he to 'be careful' how he answers.

But did you notice that he did not answer?

He realized that he had been caught in Another One of his liberal LIES and his Bush hatred and Obama Bromance!

SMH

And you are right, johnnyg, gas prices hit a higher level under Obama than under Bush. AND have STAYED high.

AC-302, "Let me assure you, not everyone in california deserves this.."

I agree with you completely, AC.

And YOU are one of the people who does not deserve the evil fallout from the wacko progressive/liberals in California.

But since they have elected these goofballs, you have to live under the results of progressive/liberal goofballs being in power.

And with the border being open, you will be paying for all the illegals as well as the liberals in Sacramento take YOUR hard earned money to give to them for NOT working and as a free hand out.

You might want to hold a couple of your progressive/liberal buddies to account when you get together for lunch the next time! They OWE you money!

Why would anyone make up gas prices on GasBuddy? Its just to easy to check out. It looks like gas prices spiked May through August 2008 in Toledo at about 4.15 or 4.14 and dropped back to about 1.52 in October and November 2008, Prices not seen again. The price has been steadily climbing since the end of 2008. Then in 2011 prices spiked again around April 2011 at about 4.16 in Toledo and has fluctuating around the 3.50 range ever since. Never did it hit 4.50 much less 5.00.

Remember Obama wants higher gas prices so people will use mass transit. He just wanted a slow increase so people can adapt more smoothly. He wants us to be more like Europe where people cant afford to drive.

BuzzLOL, ". I live in an extreme liberal city... gas is $3.14 here today... was $4.50 - $5 Summer 2008, EvilBushJr.'s last Summer in office..."

What was the price the day Bush left office and Obama took over?

Hmmmmmmmm?

btw, are you sure you want to stick with your claim that gas prices were "$4.50 - $5 Summer 2008, EvilBushJr.'s last Summer in office..."

Careful how you answer, Buzzer.

But PLEASE do answer.

This is nothing, as the populace begins to feel the pain at the pump, and their dollar reach gets shorter, they'll blame it on rich people not paying their fair share and the minimum wage. Of course the truth is that their government continues to spend like a drunken sailor and no accountability, and they create the very problems they try to solve! I avoid California like the plague, between the freeway traffic, the smog, and especially the cost of everything. Nobody should have to finance their fuel just because the state is financially incompetent with the taxpayer's money.

The first ones to feel the lack of water, teacher tim, should be beverly Hills and Hollywood and Bel Air.

No watering lawns.

No watering gardens.

No water in your huge pools.

Then let's see the limousine liberals squeal like stuck pigs.

Also ration the electricity for their huge energy guzzling mansions.

Hmmm, all those years of fighting any kind of water supply dam certainly made California a better state for droughts. Is this gas tax their way of justifying the bullet train to nowhere? On the bright side, it WOULD go through all that parched farmland VERY quickly!

Waiting for the howl when it is forbidden to fill swimming pools and to water golf courses.

And don't come to Minnesota either.

We got enough problems with liberals like Al Franken and Mark "Silver Spoon Target" Dayton and all the other wacko libs and communists in this state.

AKA Moscow on the Mississippi!

I don't have one ounce of sympathy for the people of California. They elect the people who pass these laws. If they don't like the law elect new people or move out. Just don't move to Missouri and expect us to pass the same insane laws that drove you out of the asylum.
