The Run Has Begun

I got a call from Mrs. G in Knoxville this afternoon, asking "What's going on with gas?" My sister had reported she couldn't find gas at St. Simons and Mrs. G's friend had reported four stations empty in ATL. I told her about the Colonial pipeline hack and said we might should fill up. I went to the Costco. Price hadn't gone up but the line was 30 minutes to the pump and there was an attendant directing cars. Mrs. G called later and said she had to buy premium for $3.38 and several stations were out. My son called from ATL and said he couldn't find gas. 

I say Joe and Da'Ho done put the fix in to create another good crisis. If Trump hadn't been scammed out you'd be able to buy all you want for a buck fiddy. :(

I filled up yesterday for $2.34 a gallon. The same station today was $2.67 a gallon when they ran out. I saw a station that was still pumping at $2.85 a gallon and their lot was total chaos with dozens of cars crammed around the pumps and backed up out into the highway.

First signs of socialism / communism / big government? **** gets much more expensive, then you will have to wait for many items for an increasing amount of time, until many products aren't available anymore at all.

How do I know? I lived next door to it for a long time and seen it with my own eyes. People waiting over 10 years for a car, 4 plus years for a telephone line, with all travel to the western world being banned.

Last winter during a storm my brother was running his generator and told me local station were out of gas. I asked if he'd had any trouble getting gas for his generator and he laughed. He told no trouble at all and then said the trucking company he works for had over 100k gals of diesel in the tanks and 34k gals of gas. I'd forgotten that they bought futures for fuel like Southwest airlines.

Last May it was toilet paper, this May it is gasoline.  If your is a builder it is lumber, daughter put off a remodel after contractor said he would have to rework the bid for a second time.

And the "Majority" of the American people voted for this?   

Bullsh$$. 

It's just amazing to me to have actually watched, in my lifetime...The destruction of our American Republic.  Watch it... be STOLEN Right before our very eyes.  By democrats and the supreme court.  Amazing...

Franklin was walking out of Independence Hall after the Constitutional Convention in 1787, when someone shouted out, “Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?”

 

To which Franklin supposedly responded, with a rejoinder at once witty and ominous: “A republic, if you can keep it.”

Well...The Republic has fallen.

People are increasingly less willing to mask up and social distance and stay home because COVID. No motor fuel or sky high prices fit what becomes available will serve the same purpose.

Venezuela has tremendous petroleum reserves, yet the country has generally descended into poverty for most people. Why? Because socialism.

Right after President BidenHarris get to the Border they are gonna get to that Pipeline, don`t you Worry.

Weird how 3 Bots on Facebook in 2016 was worthy of 4 years of 'Russian Collusion' but a Russian State Sponsored Ransom Hacking group shows no Proof Russia is involved, even though it raises the Price of Russia`s only real National Export.

 

Trump! 2024

So many smart people showed the proper way at that time and yet we let low IQ fools pave the path to hell.

The world is in order as long as the strong dictate the direction, but once we started sharing rights with the weak, we signed our own downfall.

Equality for all leads to a total loss, for all. It's the basic 'survival of the fittest' rule, that has been around much longer than homo sapiens, that we started ignoring.

When dumb people think they are smart...

Working in Knoxville proper, I’ve seen quite a few local stations sold out. Pilot has huge storage talks in Knoxville but allowed their stations to run out, only delivering this morning after the local radio tried to get Bill Haslam (Pilot Corp’s owner) on the phone for an answer.

Being that I am so environmentally conscience,  I used a reusable shopping bag.  They wouldn't give me a refund.

But the thermal bag kept my gas cold for hours!

If it gets too cold, you can warm it up with a propane torch.
