"je suis fatigué"
The NFL turned down a perfectly good add from a gun manufacturer, but allowed an add that exalted "the gay family." I watched two "hosts" talking about the add on ABC news. One greasy looking fat boy was talking about how "people in New York" don't like guns, so it should be banned. If the secession movement down here keeps growing, it gets my vote.
I went to town today to pay my propane bill. It was chaos. The propane place was filled with senior citizens trying to get off the "auto fill" program. That's where they come around without your calling and top you off. I never surrender any kind of control so I am not on it. January 14th, when I bought my last load, propane was $2.69 a gallon. Today they want $5.49 a gallon. The woman said it will be "months" before the price of propane comes down. I told her good luck, that nobody here can afford that price. I didn't order anymore. She tried to tell me all this bogus stuff about why the price has skyrocketed, but she was wasting her breath. I worked in oil and gas for twenty years, and I know exactly what's going on. The stuff you hear on the news is just smoke. Purely and simply, this is people like my old boss manipulating gas prices to make a killing on "futures" deliveries they bought last summer. I'm not getting hosed to enrich people of that nature and will go back to wood until the price comes down. Fortunately, I think I have enough already stacked up to stay warm for the rest of the winter unless we get more Science Fiction cold spells here. Tough on everybody else that doesn't have a back up heat source though.
