Well, Independence Day weekend is here…..

Well folks, this weekend that is upon us is the first great holiday of the summer, second chance to get away, as Americans. We usually plan a great get away, to go and do something that is fun and outdoors. But this year, is different. As we usually go out and have fun, this weekend for many many of us, the fun will be in staying home. Heck people, because of Congress and their keeping the oil companies from drilling for our own oil, the price of everything has gone up. NOT JUST GAS and DIESEL!

And yes people, I said that I blame Congress. For decades, they have sided with the environmentalists in keeping the oil companies at bay and this country at the mercy of the whims and wishes of the dictatorial enemies of the United States. And the enemy on this? They freaking love it because we are beating ourselves by allowing this to happen.

As we continue to toil and try to live our lives, we have to take into account now the rising price of gasoline, and the size of our cars. I have seen more and more big cars disappear and mopeds and motorcycles appear on the roads. Even Heroes, as the caption goes, have to downsize to survive.

Driving a truck for a living, I know first hand how this whole thing is affecting me. The company that I work for, was slated to give out raises this last month, and not many of us got them…..though all need them.

The company now cannot afford to pay it’s employees what they deserve because the price of fuel has skyrocketed and gone into the indecent range of ridiculousness. Companies smaller than the one I work for are going under. And what about the independent truckers? They are suffering badly with the price of fuel. I own a 1996 Mustang with a 3.8 V6 in it, and it gets great gas mileage, though I had to stop driving it because it was too expensive. So now it sits, and I have bought a small scooter because it will get me to where I need to go each day to work, and it gets 80 to 100 miles per gallon. This is something that a year ago, I would have never thought of doing. Now it is for survival.

But, today being the third of July, the great holiday of the United States, July 4th, Independence day is upon us. And they are predicting that no where near as many Americans will be on the roads this year as they had in years past. With the price of gas at 4.11 per gallon here in Indianapolis, we can look back to the fourth of July last year when gas prices were only 2.85 per gallon. That was still very expensive, but I do not know anyone who wouldn’t want it to go back to that price. But with Congress and our representatives in Washington bucking our every wish, and keeping us from drilling for our own oil, we can only expect for the price of Oil and Gas to keep skyrocketing on us, while people like Barack Obama tells us almost daily that drilling will not help any because it is a short term help. All I can say to that sir, is that a short term help would be great right now, and while we have that short term help…..we could then look for alternative means of energy. How about going for the oil we have…..then having our scientists work on perfecting the hydrogen car. Or the electric car. Come on people…..Americans can do it…….but only if they are allowed too. Right now Congress and the government in Washington are the enemy of progress. Maybe we should get rid of them and start with a whole new bunch of government officicals, that will allow us to do what we want. I know I for one want to start doing the right thing and drill for our own oil, so prices can lower, and we can stop making our enemies rich off of our hard work. Come on people….lets get working on this. I do not want to make the people in this world that want us dead to get any richer off of me. How about you?

God Bless America, and have a happy July the 4th….
God Bless our Troops…..always
God Bless my readers, my listeners on BTR, and my viewers on Youtube….

I am a Reagan Conservative, who is very alarmed at the Liberals who have just lost their majority over our government, but continue to act like it never happened. They have to be stopped. NOW or even sooner.

    Robert, you hit the nail on the head as usual. I just wish us Americans would start marching on Washington and DEMAND that the government drill for our own oil, and turn our coal into oil, no matter what the enviro-whackos say. The politicians have forgotten that they were elected to serve the PEOPLE not special interest groups. I really hope those demonstrations start soon. In the mean time I’ll look into buying a moped. Happy 4th of July!

    You are so right on so many levels. The gas prices have caused prices across the board to go up… yet my salary has remained the same. While there is no “quick fix” for it… we need to start thinking about long term, and those areas the oil companies have not been allowed to drill in yet are the best answer for the mid-term.

    Obviously… the best long term is a more renewable energy source… like the sun.
