Blah, blah, blah


Europeans socialists paying $8 per gallon for gas

Today it was reported that Europenas are paying $8 per gallon for gas. Obviously they buy in liters but the article called it per gallon. The article cited that Europeans drivers pay the highest gas taxes in the world, with the tax on diesel in Britain accounting for 65% of the retail price. In Britain, the politicians are actually considering raising the taxes on fuel.

This article, to me, sums up how well socialism works. Lots of fools like to say that our capatalist system does not work as good as Europe's socialist ways. Once again, here is some proof.

Now lets all hear why Bush is at fault and why our prices are so high because Bush is somehow profiting from it.

"Now lets all hear why Bush is at fault..."

Okay, I'll take a stab at this one.

It's his fault because he failed to champion conservative ideals which led to out of control spending by congress and no leadership in drilling for our own oil which led to a revolt at the ballot box which led to a democrat controlled congress and hence... gas prices which had been steadily increasing under the GOP congress are now going through the roof.

See, it is his fault! LOL

Actually right now in britain regular gas is $11 a gallon, not $8. This is particularly annoying to Brits because the UK is self sufficient in oil. A HUGE part of the price of gas in the UK is tax.

Mike isn't just easier to say "Bush Lied and everything is is fault" I think that is the liberal platform

Can you believe it. Some idiot politicain would actually believe that 50% tax on gas is OK? An dumb fools that go for that deserve what they get.

Kevin - in England there is actaully tax on tax! I am not joking! You see the price of a gallon includes a large amount of gas tax. But once you get the ACTUAL price of a gallon - including the tax - THEN you have to pay 17.5% SALES TAX on top - for some reason it's called "Value Added Tax". OUR future if we are not very careful/

Simon what I cannot grasp is how any politicians or people can even think that way. It is so foreign to me. I call it robbery.
