A human right to free gasoline?

Sign spotted at New Mexico gas station on our recent visit

 

 

It must be that corn-based ethanol that qualifies it as food

    Come out from under the rock. Lots of gas stations around the nation accept EBT. Go look in Port Chester or the Bronx. And just because you can’t afford water in Detroit shouldn’t mean you can’t have free gasoline.

    “According to a report in The Detroit News this morning, the administration is using its authority under the Affordable Care Act to “improve transportation routes to hospitals” to dispense gasoline free of cost in disadvantaged neighborhoods.
    The $2 billion-a-year program aims to distribute 40 million gallons of free gasoline each year through 70 new gas stations constructed in major metropolitan areas. The Department of Health and Human Services (DHS) will be responsible for operating the network”.

    Free gasoline. Free water. Free birth control. Ain’t America grand?

      All the free stuff is why I don’t work. Work is for tax payers.

      I would think that you would totally support free birth control,passing it out on every corner in places like Detroit. Right?

      That is seriously hypocritical. Free gas for the poor and lazy, and the rest of us will soon be mandated to solar up and buy electric cars (actually dirtier than gas, coal, you know…).

      And Detroit, we ought to let that go back to farm land. My family lost a dealership in the government Chrysler intervention, and you’d swear we were in communist Russia and not America. High taxes in affluent Michigan communities (not Detroit area) are no longer being used for local schools, roads and services. 25 mils and half of it is being sent to Detroit.

      I tell you, living offshore on a boat is looking better and better!

        Electric cars dirtier than gas? Really? I am sure getting that gasoline out of the ground, refined, and transported is so much cleaner than driving an electric car powered by the sun (that will be my home setup in 3 months time). Heck even if powered by the electric companies…more and more of them are using renewable energy now of some sort. Half of this country’s electricity comes from coal but that will go down over time.

        You want to continue to be dependent on Middle Eastern oil then be my guest, and please don’t give me a spiel about all the new fracking opportunities. We still import oil from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Columbia, etc., etc.

        • Electric cars are far worse than modern diesels when charged by conventional fuels. While it is nice to pretend that our country’s fleet will be powered by propeller beanies, that happy day has not arrived, so it’s best to avoid ruining Mongolia and Tibet by mining the rare earths required to form electric car batteries and buy a new diesel. Whatever you do, don’t compare the longevity f a diesel engine – 250,000 miles, say, with the life of a battery – 120,000 miles, or the energy consumption/green house gas emission calculations will ruin your green day.

      I’ve said this jokingly before, but it really is no joke.

      Chris,

      I have no idea where you got the 120k mile life of a battery, but Tesla’s batteries last much, much longer. There are Roadsters out there with 200k+ of miles on them. Current thinking is that the batteries will be able to go 400k+ at 60-70% of orig range. The batteries are guaranteed for eight years – unlimited miles.

      Yes, diesels are much better today but they still emit poisons in the air and subject us to Middle Eastern turmoils.

      That “happy day” will arrive at my house in three or so months. That is when my Tesla and solar PV system arrives. Sun powered car!!! And I am not the first in this area to have that setup. Come on people, let’s think differently!

    Barry and his Free Shit Army stealing from us and stealing from our kids.

    Dude –
    What Barry, and the other Libtards have finally figured out, is all these social programs, like affirmative action, diversity, preferences to minority owned businesses, and the TRILLIONS of dollars we have spent on them and other social programs, just aren’t working. Because for them to actually work, the recipient NEEDS TO ACTUALLY WORK!!

    And they don’t want to do that. They just want free shit. And think they are entitled to it. So what to do now? Should we address the social problems facing minorities? Deal with the drug issues and violence? The dysfunctional families? NO!! That stuff is too hard. Why address the real problem? That is not the liberal way. And speaking about the real issues is RACIST!! We all know that, because the Libtards tell us so.

    So why not just give them the money we were pissing away on opportunity programs, and buy their votes? BRILLIANT I SAY!! Let the borders get flooded with millions of illegals, who will further strain the system, but assure the Libtards stay in power.

    This “guy” is hell bent on killing the middle class, redistributing the wealth, buying votes on the back of the working stiff, and shredding the Constitution. And he is enabled by a totally biased propaganda tool called the MSM, and a spineless Congress. So he is actually winning.

    This is the most corrupt administration in history. He has turned the IRS and DOJ into a tool, you tool, and that he uses to punish the Citizens he has taken a solemn Oath to protect. It is an absolute and utter disgrace. AND CRIMINAL!! But we do nothing.

    Anyhows, where are my fatties? My blunts? My whacky sticks. Because now you have depressed me. The only thing worse then what “he” is doing would be to kill babies. AND HE SUPPORTS THAT!! Did someone say dead baby?

    What’s funnier than a dead baby, Dude? NOTHING!! Or maybe a dead baby in a clown suit!!
    Your Pal,

      Walt, How can you post comments between 7 and 7:30? Real men watch Jeopardy. Real real men let the little woman get more questions right (in my case she does anyway because she’s way smarter than I).

      Did you get Final Jeopardy? I did.

      Mr Obama can do as he pleases as he knows the opposition are a bunch of whining paper tiger cunts.

    Duh. Its Indian Country dude. Cant buy liquor with an EBT card………..

    • In fact, gas stations in New Mexico and Oklahoma sell whiskey (and other hard liquor) in 1/2 and full-pint bottles from racks right beside the cashier. I kid you not. I can’t imagine anyone going to a gas station on a state highway to buy booze unless he was intending to drink it while driving home (or continuing his journey), which makes for a strange public policy, especially given the plethora of signs along those same roads encourage citizens to “report drunk drivers”. Oh well, it’s the west, land of the free.
