My local gas station was empty this morning (Carroll County, Maryland) but I was able to fill up on the way to work in Baltimore. Today should be interesting...

There is an app called GasBuddy that shows stations that still have fuel... but it crashed from on-line demand... so that is gone too. Oooofa.
It’s business as usual here in Oklahoma. No lines, no price increase.

Anyone else feel like this administration is behind the pipeline cyber attack? I guess I should say, anyone feel as though this administration isn’t behind this pipeline cyber attack?

I don’t see any word of them trying to help people in the states that are directly affected. We are just seeing the next step toward this administration destroying the livelihood of Americans.
I mentioned several posts back that this pipeline hack is the shiny object. I firmly believe it’s to take the pressure off the pedophile so he can claim he isn’t responsible for the price increase. And all the people standing in gas lines filling up every container they have is doing nothing but feeding the lie. Coincidence that the deep red south is the one being punished and at the same time being the ones creating the frenzy which will then drive the prices up? Is this the prelude to the green new deal? Thoughts?

I am going deep sea fishing on the 28th. I just can’t get into freshwater fishing. Twice a year I make an excuse to go to Dads house in Alabama and we fill up several coolers of fish and I bag it and deep freeze. Last couple years I have done good enough to not have enough space for much hog or deer, so my hunting has gone way down.
i ate fresh seafood 5 times a week when i lived in PI...probably the healthiest i've ever been-rice, fish, farm fresh chicken and pig, plus running and hiking in the mountains in that heat and humidity--even went thru the navy's JEST training course--i was one fit mofo!!!

always have room for deer meat!!!

I grew up gulf coast. My seafood consumption is way down. Put in PI it’s pretty all I eat. I think the meat there is nasty and cheap quality. So fish is always safe.

the pig and chicken i ate out in the province was home raised--everyone had a pig and chickens were everywhere---i used to pay the neighbor kid to get the chickens to screw-they would be up in the air for about a minute going to town, i really got a kick out of that....fresh eggs too!!!

but you are right, the seafood was top notch!!!

damn...those were some good times, somedays i feel like convincing my wife to pack up and move there but can't leave kids and grandkids behind with all this crap going on and that is about to happen.

Democrats are truly the dumbest creatures on this earth. Followed closely by single cell organisms.

To think they used to say (and probably still do) Trump was unfit to be president. Meanwhile, this administration can’t even secure our borders or provide us with f*cking gasoline! Nor do they want to..

you are right-they had to see this coming if diben got elected and they still voted for him :geek:
Everything has been quite predictable for sure. I will never understand the motive behind why some people close to me voted for him. Early onset dementia, mental illness, and extreme naïveté?

Even if that is not the case, Trump spelled it out for everyone in very simple terms on numerous occasions before the ”election.“ I guess they thought he was just kidding 🤷‍♂️

A very good Post from another forum I am on:

Only 4 months in!!!!!
So...Israel is on fire, war in the middle east, Major US pipeline hacked, price of everyday goods is skyrocketing, Russia is massing troops on the border with Ukraine. Ukraine is threatening to take Crimea back by force. China is threatening Taiwan and its neighbors while also threatening our ships and Navy. N Korea is testing missiles again and restarting their nuclear weapons program. Iran has been emboldened and making more than their normal threats.
Our southern border is a humanitarian disaster caused directly by this administration, and the administration that promised transparency is hiding it and not letting the media have access. Ford is closing a plant and moving it to Mexico after just bringing it back from Mexico because of the current Administrationâs plan for Increased taxes.
Price of steel up 145%,
Lumber 126%,
Wheat up 25%,
Food index up 25%,
Cotton 35%,
Silver 38%,
Copper 50%,
Soybeans 71%,
Oil 80%,
Pipeline jobs lost.
Wall construction jobs lost.
1.9 trillion in stimulus that funds the administrations pet projects and only paid a fraction to the people.
29 trillion in debt with 4.8 trillion projected 2021 deficit before the 2 trillion dollar stimulus proposed today for the new green deal.
6+% unemployment with millions of job openings that canât be filled because federal unemployment assistance makes it more advantageous for people to stay home than work.
Man what an interesting time with the new administration but at least NO MORE MEAN TWEETS!!!

Its all about the mean tweets.

Excuse me, I'll have to go put on my skinny leg jeans and a hat, but after I apply my organic beard oil.
If I start adding this to my coffee and cereal will I start to understand the suboptimal thought process of a liberal?

yup-always, even when buying new and especially used. my son in law is a avid bow hunter, i won't make a move until he checks things out.

on the other hand had another great day fishing, nothing spectacular like that 20lb catfish but enjoyed the hell out of getting out early in my boat--country living is the life for me!!!

If it was up to me and I had to implement a "fair tax" it would be a flat tax rate with the lower 20k or so exempt to help poor people.

Progressive tax is absolute lunacy, you shouldnt get punished more for being more productive and successful. With flat tax you already pay more with each extra penny you make. Of course I would eliminate (over time) socialist policies and get these taxes as low as possible and so tax money is spent on thigs that only help our country as a whole.

Now with the actual "fair tax" your talking about Im doing some reading and hmmmm.....first impression is not bad.

Forget flat tax. What we need is VAT. That way every person is paying their fair share when they purchase things. Don’t want to pay taxes? Then don’t buy ****. Young, old, rich, poor, everyone gets a fair shake.

The great thing about a fair tax (fed sales tax) is that is captures taxes even from illegal drug money. And if the rich are buying yachts, they in essence pay a higher wealth tax by choice.

And there would be money saved on some IRS (though likely still very involved with business/corporate taxes... unless you propose private citizens add that tax burden too!)

The BAD thing about a fair tax, and the reason Dems will always oppose it, is because:

1) the poor and middle class have less disposable income. All of their money, paycheck to paycheck is spent on necessities. And thus all taxed. It becomes a higher tax rate per income by percent.

2) Meanwhile the rich would not be taxed on money not spent. Savings and investments not taxed when not actually spent. And the rich for the most part already bought their nice house and expensive cars.... they could go with buying less and avoiding some taxes.

I like the Herman Cain style 9-9-9 plan... or adjusted to be like a 6-8-10 plan.

Everyone pays something. Everyone has some skin in the game.

And maybe let's focus more on cutting spending, and worry less about how to forcibly take the money every year.

Voting would look much different if everyone that was voting had some skin in the game. Nothing worse than a bunch of gimmedats wrecking our country for no other reason than some scumbag promising them free ****.

Thats what Im all about. Punishing productive behavior is a human rights violation, yet there are those "life is slavery people" who prop up the very system that enslaves them.

1) no, actually the poor and middle class have far more disposable income. plus you are not taking into account the monthly rebate on all living expenses. Remember.. everyone is now taking home their entire income instead of 60%.

2) show me one rich person who for what ever reason just stops buying new stuff. I know these people .. I have built homes for some of the wealthiest people in the country. they aint going to stop buying dik all. In most cases they are paying sales taxes plus fed taxes. Trust me .. they will have so much extra cash they will buy MORE new sh17.

remember too, this was Herman's way to get to the fair tax federally.... He was one of the biggest supporters of the Fair tax.
