Holy Freaking Crap!

So there are now THREE hurricanes in the Atlantic Ocean at one time. As I write this hurricane Maria, Nate, and Ophelia are churning around looking for a temperature differential to fill. Now it might not be global warming (but it probably has something to do with it) but this is bad news. Hurricanes are nature’s way of getting rid of lots and lots of pent up heat in the oceans. If another serious one hits the gulf area you will see $10 a gallon gas and people will freeze to death this winter from lack of heating oil because they cant afford it. We HAVE GOT TO DO SOMETHING, about this oil problem. My solution of course is to use lots and lots of renewable energy systems installed on every home in the country (and all the business’s as well). But you know this would cost a lot of money. In the long run however it would make thousands of new jobs (now that almost half a million people don’t have a job to go back to). It would remove our dependence on “foreign oil”, and would drastically clean up our air, seas, and land. I don’t see why we can spend hundreds of billions of dollars to go blow people up, and hundreds of billions of dollars to rebuild after storms, but we cant spend hundreds of billions of dollars to prevent the extinction of the species?

We found her!

We have found my friend Jamie, I am so happy. She is ok and her family is ok. Her house is even still standing. All should rejoice because in this time of horrible suffering at least one family is ok. :)

I Come to Bury Ceasar

William Rehnquist is dead.

You blocks, you stones
you worse than senseless things
…I come to bury Ceasar
not to praise him.
The evil that men do lives after them,
The good is oft interr’d within their bones

Shakespeare (Julius Ceasar).

All I can say is the Bush administration will be hard pressed to find someone as bad as he was…but I am sure they will do their best. With Katrina, Iraq, and now 2(!) openings on the supreme court, we are in trouble people. Big trouble.

Take that you stupid fuckers.

So here is something to think about.

Hummer H2 fuel tank size : 32 gallons
Hummer H2 Mpg: 10-13mpg
Cost of gas near my house: $3.50
Averge car driven (8000 miles per year): 22 per day.

Cost to fill Hummer H2 at $3.50 a gallon: $112
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one day: $6.42
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one week: $44.92
Cost to gas Hummer H2 for one year: $2335.66
Cost to gas Hummer H2 per mile: $.30

Prius fuel tank size: 12 gallons
Prius Mpg: 51-60
Cost of gas near my house: $3.50
Averge car driven (8000 miles per year): 22 per day.

Cost to fill Prius at $3.50 a gallon: $42
Cost to gas Prius for one day: $1.40
Cost to gas Prius for one week: $9.80
Cost to gas Prius for one year: $509.60
Cost to gas Prius per mile: $.06

Money saved on gas by owning a Prius rather than a Hummer H2 ($2335.66 – $509.60) = 1826.06
now this is if you only drive 22 miles per day (the average)

Frankly it should be illegal in this time of energy shortage to own a Hummer H2 or other huge SUV’s but even if it isn’t illegal is makes good finacial sence to not own one.
