Is it really the middle of August? Toto, am I really in Kansas? And I am to believe that this cooler than normal weather is being caused by global warming.
Folks, I'm tired. I'm tired of idiots telling me that I'm slowly burning up when in fact I'm looking for a long sleeved shirt, IN AUGUST! I'm tired of hearing how the bread basket of North America will lay barren due to drought when in fact our rivers overflow their rain filled banks, IN AUGUST. I tend more to agree with the June 24, 1974 Time Magazine article that a global ice age is returning. Or perhaps if you are a naysayer (or even worse, a believer in global warming) an even more recent article written in 2005. Climate change is a natural occurrence and the effect humans has on it are local not global.
I'm tired of being forced to purchase ethanol in gasoline. (talk to your local gas station and see if he is purchasing fuel with added alcohol) Since I drive an average of 250 miles a day, I have a log of my fuel mileage ..... (alcohol reduces my mileage by at least 10%). The only thing that ethanol improves is the intake of federal and state fuel taxes because you have to buy more gallons.
I'm tired of "political correctness". I'm tired of listening to one woman saying she is "saving the planet" by not drilling. I'm tired of politicians taking my liberties and spending my money and saying it is for my well being. It is time to take the country back, not by revolt, but by the vote. We have an election coming this November. Make your vote count this year. KNOW what your candidate's position is on the different policies ... and if they don't follow-up on it .... vote them back out.
This has been my rant for the day.
