Trigger warning:

This site may, in fact always will contain images and information likely to cause consternation, conniptions, distress, along with moderate to severe bedwetting among statists, wimps, wusses, politicians, lefties, green fascists, and creatures of the state who can't bear the thought of anything that disagrees with their jaded view of the world.

Obama too.

The government consists of a gang of men exactly like you and me. They have, taking one with another, no special talent for the business of government; they have only a talent for getting and holding office. Their principal device to that end is to search out groups who pant and pine for something they can’t get, and to promise to give it to them.

Nine times out of ten that promise is worth nothing. The tenth time it is made good by looting ‘A’ to satisfy ‘B’. In other words, government is a broker in pillage, and every election is a sort of advanced auction on stolen goods." H.L.Mencken.

Kevvy Rudd won the last Australian Election by watching for Howard to come up with viable policies, and saying “Me too.” He became a sort of echo; “We will cut taxes.” “Me too.” And on it went.

The Labor environment spokesman, Peter Garret admitted during the campaign that when they formed a government they would change it all. Unfortunately he was dismissed as an idiot, admittedly true, but ignoring the fact that idiots can tell the truth.

Obama seems to have learned how to do this. Remember his original energy policy: -

He seems to assume that all of those fools out there are driving around on low tires, and if they just pump them up the US will be self sufficient in oil, hundreds of billions of barrels worth.

But wait, there’s more. President Bush has lifted the Executive Order banning energy exploration off America’s coasts. McCain is pushing for more exploration and as result of the potential for more oil the price has started to fall.

Obama has responded with the possibility of ‘limited offshore drilling,’ utterances of the ‘addiction’ to oil, help to turn more food into ethanol, taxpayer funding to auto companies, and deplete the strategic oil reserve.

Instead of getting out of the way and letting free enterprise do what it is renowned for, supplying products to the market at the best rate possible, he only wants government to find solutions at taxpayer expense.
