Gasoline Is Too Damn High (Video)

If you are driving, you shouldn’t be reading this. Here is Big Jim on Gasoline Is Too Damn High:

Gasoline is skyrocketing past $4 a gallon and Jimmy McMillan is outraged. How are Americans supposed to afford their rent if they can’t afford the gasoline to get to work? Watch Jimmy send a powerful message to the White House: GASOLINE IS TOO DAMN HIGH!

    Here in the UK we are paying TWICE as much as the USA for gas. You guys need to ditch the gas guzzlers and get with the far more economic cars we drive in Europe.

      Undeniable point.

      But sometimes I think the even larger problem has to do with the American model of urban (un)planning:  We all live out in the middle of the fucking woods.  Jesus Christ, I live in Wisconsin where I have to drive a half mile to check the mail every morning!

      Smaller vehicles, even if they aren’t necessarily electric or alternative fuel, is a necessary first step.  But the question will inevitably come to corralling an appropriate proportion of the virus known as Man within urban environments with a more sustainable ecological footprint.

      And let me tell you that in America, or at least Wisconsin, that is gonna be a muthafukka.  The dominant socio-poltical dynamic over here right now is extreme misanthropy.  Just what is the flash point of a community so dedicated to hatred of each other and hatred of ourselves that collective bargaining is considered a Sin against Him-What-Made-Us?

        One of these days, Liam, you will be able to say what you mean in a paragraph or two.  I love reading your comments, but sometimes I forget what the hell you are talking about by the time I get to the end of it.

          Well, here’s one way to read this last post:  Stop after the first paragraph.  Or the first sentence even.

          “But sometimes I think the even larger problem has to do with the American model of urban (un)planning:  We all live out in the middle of the fucking woods.”

          That’s not cryptic.  Pretty much hits the key note.  The rest is exposition to encourage feedback.  Sometimes I get some.  Other times I don’t. 

          One thing for sure, though:  No one on earth is ever gonna adequately capture the complexity of resource dependence, ecological footprint, and overpopulation in one book, let alone post, sentence or paragraph.  Take a stab at it.  I’m sure you’ll agree.

    The website is just promoting drilling. It says, “More Drilling = More Gasoline = Lower Gas Prices”. Shouldn’t we be looking for a more fuel efficient alternative instead of just drilling for more? Sounds sketchy to me.

    Boo hoo, gas is too high, but you refuse to invest in alternatives until it’s going to be too late? Seriously, I am waiting for the day gas runs out just so they’ll stop wasting time on such a terribly limited resource. It’s time to go electric for real (powered by many nuclear power plants).

      Electric cars require Petrolium to create, and electricity is also made using Petro products, Electric is not the way. 

      • SF2K01

        That’s not really my point. I doubt petroleum is some unavoidable ingredient in the production of electric cars. Even if current manufacturing processes somehow involve petroleum then obviously they would have to do it sans petroleum in the future. Regardless, the essential point is figure out how to do things without oil now and don’t wait till later.
