Teh Squeaky Wheel
That’s an unusual way of whipping cream, Mac.
First o’ November greetin’s, GN!
At 11:33 last night, NBC News’ Twitter account tweeted:
Muslim Americans again brace for backlash after New York attack

What a disgusting propaganda organization NBC is.
Just read someone who referred to yesterday’s terror attack in NYC as “Islamic bowling”.
That’s close to being a Papa Arbuckle level of cynical tastelessness.
Good morning, GN, and hi, Fatwa!
Ah, yes: teh backlash.
Yeah for California: new gasoline tax kicks in today. Another $.12 per gallon for gasoline; another $.20 per gallon for diesel.
On the plus side, the Dodgers won Game 6 last night against Houston; Game 7 tonight.
CA might not need the extra gas taxes if they’d actually been spending them on roads instead of shoring-up / subsidizing public transit. (And, CA being CA, likely diverting some of it to pay for public employees’ pensions, too. And grifting…can’t forget the grifting.)
Happy sugar-crash Wednesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
Last year we ran out of candy, so this year we bought 50% more. We should have bought 50% less. The extra will be donated.
Ah yes, the Muslim backlash -- “Why do you people blame us every time we do something bad?”
Fatwa -- yes, in CA the gas taxes have been diverted to pay for many other things, including pensions. About $1 billion annually in truck weight fees also goes to the general budget, instead of to maintaining roads. About 30% of the new gas tax and increased vehicle license fees will go to transit, public parks, food and agricultural projects, etc.
Be reasonable, guys. You won’t need those roads when the bullet train, light rail projects, and bike loaning projects get everyone out of those nasty cars. Mothers can carry their kids in papoose packs and haul their groceries on the bus in environmentally responsible reusable cloth bags.
Think how much more efficiently the rulers can run your life with the time saved when their limos don’t have to fight all that traffic once the peasants are off the roads.
You would think they worked for you the way you carry on.
What was I thinking?
It’s going to take a lot of you peasants giving up your cars, AC, and big screen TVs to offset the rulers like Al Gore with their estates and fleets of limos. They don’t want that lavish lifestyle, they don’t even like apples, they do it for you! What would you do if they were not telling you what to think?
