We have you beat. In Michigan of course we pay the Federal fuel tax, a state assessed fuel tax and wait for it, a state sales tax of 6% on top of it. So in effect we are paying state sales tax on sales tax.

Per a local commercial developer I know, fuel is only useful in getting customers onto the property and hopefully into the store for drinks, food, and other products the store makes much higher margins on. No one pays their rent based on fuel sales.

And do the math on this gas tax relief BS. My truck takes approximately 20 gallons to fill up. That costs me approximately $100. So Biden, the drooling, incontinent, pedophile is offering me a savings of $.18 x 20 gallons or $3.60 per fill up. Hot damn, that's almost half a lunch at Taco Bell. Roll EyesRoll EyesRoll Eyes

Yeah, that gas tax relief will be made up elsewhere. Death and taxes right?

Lord, I hate that the next America # 1 president will need 4 years to straighten 2 Scoops mess…all the mess caused by the social experiment that has damn near destroyed us.

We need an America first leader.

Just for clarification, that response was to Biden's comments not sdy's.

Did anyone else notice Bidet’s eyes yesterday while he was speaking? They just looked absolutely lifeless, even more so than usual. The man is failing fast. His Marxist handlers are likely celebrating his demise, as he’s been their useful idiot, their empty husk to implement their destruction of our nation. Not to mention, Lady Macbeth, Jill, pushing this whole charade just to become first lady after sitting second chair to Moochelle for 8 years.

Dementia, Alzheimer’s and Eyesight: Symptoms
Short answer: The brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia often have difficulty processing what their eyes see, leading to confusion and anxiety.

The Wall Street Journal’s article yesterday was headlined, “Biden Administration Targets Removal of Most Nicotine From Cigarettes.” The Journal grudgingly admits that smoking rates have been “declining for years,” with a small pandemic bump, and that the regulatory changes could take years to implement.

Morons. Do they think people won't bring them in across our wide open southern border?

The rule would apply to all cigarettes sold in the United States, including imports of traditional cigarettes. However, multinational tobacco companies would still be allowed to sell full-nicotine cigarettes in other countries.

"Because tobacco-related harms primarily result from addiction to products that repeatedly expose users to toxins, FDA would take this action to reduce addictiveness to certain tobacco products, thus giving addicted users a greater ability to quit," FDA said.

"Some things are apparent. Where government moves in, community retreats, civil society disintegrates and our ability to control our own destiny atrophies. The result is: families under siege; war in the streets; unapologetic expropriation of property; the precipitous decline of the rule of law; the rapid rise of corruption; the loss of civility and the triumph of deceit. The result is a debased, debauched culture which finds moral depravity entertaining and virtue contemptible."

I recently was on Eight Mile between Haggerty and Northville. Obviously somebody carpet bombed it.

As usual, nobody in the administration thought this out.

The administration is worried about reducing the amount of addictive nicotine in cigarets. Smokers will probably just smoke more, to get the same nicotine buzz.

Meanwhile, alot of states are legalising MJ, or de-criminalising drug use. Like that makes any sense at all.

I saw this yesterday and am still trying to figure out the point. It ain't the nicotine that kills you.

And Ironbutt raises a good point. They are making legal substances illegal and illegal drugs legal. Makes about as much sense as a football bat.

And Republicans aren't different enough:

Tucker Carlson savages Republican politicians’ disrespect for Americans

Tucker Carlson’s puckishness is a bit brittle lately. Rather than having fun poking at political foibles while still making interesting points, he often seems genuinely angry lately. I can’t blame him because I’m angry, too, at what Biden and his cohorts have done to America. What makes me even angrier is that congressional Republicans and many Republican governors seem happy to go along with this. Sure, they’ll sometimes make the right noises (Lindsey Graham’s a master at this) but, at the end of the day, they side with Democrats—and last night Tucker lit up the Republicans for their disconnect with the American people.

Tucker opened his monologue by pointing out that the American people have come to despise Biden and his policies. Despite the media’s covering for Biden, people have noticed raging inflation, a recession, lawlessness, broken borders, a tenderness for Ukraine denied to America, cultivated race hatred, efforts to disarm law-abiding citizens, and the arrogance of the LGBTQ+++ crowd—and they don’t like any of it. It turns out that mean tweets aren’t so bad when compared to a government that’s hostile to its own citizens.

The Democrats’ intentional mismanagement is so extreme that the party is losing Hispanics and blacks in droves. In theory, this should be a golden age for Republicans. It’s not though, and that’s the fault of the Republican political class, few of whom seem to embrace conservativism or Americans. Rather, as Tucker exposes in his hard-hitting monologue, their principles are aligned with Biden and his Democrat politicians and media flaks and they share the Democrat political class’s disdain for Americans.

There’s no distance between what Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer want, on the one hand, and what Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, and all the other extremely powerful RINOs want:

A monetary policy that gives the government more money to play with;
An open border providing cheap labor for the monied Democrats and Republicans and possible decades of votes;
A military-industrial complex that floods politicians with money as long as the politicians divert taxpayer money to Ukraine;
A total bow-down to the Critical Race Theorists, which the Democrats do because it gives them political power and the Republicans do because they’re milquetoasts who are embarrassed about America;
Same goes for the LGBTQ+++ tyranny that’s spreading across America; and, of course,
An endless spigot of Chinese money, never mind that accepting it means selling out their own country.

Pay special attention to the last minute or so of Tucker’s speech. It’s a warning I sincerely hope Republican politicians, from Mitch McConnell on down, heed lest America become ungovernable and the whole American experiment devolves into a welter of violence, blood, and famine.

Good points in that article, chellim1. We see all this happening and for the most part the Republicans are doing nothing. A friend commented there's really one party now and the Democrat and Republican parties only exist to create an illusion of choice. Besides, divided people are easier to control.

As Tucker says, "This level of disconnection from what voters actually want is dangerous, and it's destabilizing."
