The Daily Sheeple – by Melissa Dykes
It’s all happening so fast, it’s hard to keep up with all the b.s. coming out of the president and his White House in his last year.
In case you missed it, Obama just proposed raising the gas tax to what would amount to 136%.
By proposing a $10 per barrel tax on every barrel of oil produced in the U.S., Obama wants to add a .25 cent gas tax on every gallon of gas you purchase at the pump. He wants to use it to pay for his green transportation initiatives.
Considering federal gas tax is 18.4 cents a gallon currently, this would mean a whopping 136% increase. When state taxes are considered, we will be paying .70 cents in tax on every gallon of gas.
While a .25 cent increase per gallon may not seem like a lot considering how low gas prices are at the moment, just consider how much we would all feel it if/when prices go back up to what they were a few years ago. The cost of everything will go up even more in this country, especially food.
Obama knows this fact. He’s the one who pointed it out actually.
As Daily Caller reported, Obama was just telling us all a few years back how much gas prices have the ability to harm everyone in the country, and especially people who are poor and just trying to make ends meet:
Obama told Georgetown University students in a 2011 speech that “rising prices at the pump affect everybody – workers, farmers, truck drivers, restaurant owners, students who are lucky enough to have a car.”
“Businesses see rising prices at the pump hurt their bottom line,” Obama warned in 2011. “Families feel the pinch when they fill up their tank. And for Americans that are already struggling to get by, a hike in gas prices really makes their lives that much harder. It hurts.”
So, in other words, Obama is openly admitting he wants to hurt you financially.
Guess that isn’t really news to most of us.

PLEASE BLACK MAN…. GO KILL THIS NIGGER!
He’s part white…
“While a .25 cent increase per gallon may not seem like a lot considering how low gas prices are at the moment, just consider how much we would all feel it if/when prices go back up to what they were a few years ago.”
The sooner people are flat broke & starving, the sooner we can get this sh#t fixed.
The “Lamestream” media is trying to make it sound good by saying that it only applies to imported oil, domestic oil would be exempt. Considering that all of our domestic oil is essentially handed over to other countries, it amounts to nothing but more BS!
$1.52.9 a gallon in Wisconsin today. Now you watch. “There’s a terrorist behind that tree.” Because of the greed of a few, the rest of the world hates us. But when your government is “bought off” by multi-national corporations, you can expect this “brief reprieve” in gas prices to be “short lived”.
Obama, a great puppet to deliver the message, will hopefully be the last in a long string of installed presidents. No chance of that, “The Donald, Hillary, and Bernie won’t let that happen. Cruz, he may as well go on a cruise, stick a fork in him, he’s done. What, supposedly win the Iowa caucuses and drop in numbers? Rubio, the “gay gig” could propel him to Bill Clintonville or take him down. (He’d probably be happy with that) And let’s not leave out poor, little, whiney Jeb, he couldn’t visit a whorehouse and make the news. Do we really need all this drama. If we all just ignored CNN and all the bullshit, their ratings plummet and “poof”, they’re gone. That is the way it works.
good rant Millard.
Paul, it’s good therapy to get things off your chest. I feel slightly purged, if only for this brief moment.
Relax people. It’s just a proposal goddamint!
Like a proposal to tighten that rope around his neck for treason by 136%.
Or to have Michelle expose her penis on Oprah.
Probably not gonna happen.
I think he/she already did that, flee.
Every city, town, state, and utility can be expected to raise taxes, rates, and generally increase their squeezing of every available penny as the cash dries up.
Get used to depression-style living NOW. Nothing gets wasted, and nothing is purchased that isn’t necessary to sustaining life.
The Constitution puts no limit on the governments power to tax.
We all want the government to follow the Constitution. Don’t we?
