Algae is just alright, oh yeah.

Can we now say Barack Obama is right up there with pond scum?

    But, yeah. Pres. Pond-Scum, of Moonpony.

    They’re obsessed” By Jim Messina, Obama 2012 Campaign Manager

    In just about 24 hours, Mitt Romney is headed to a hotel ballroom to give a speech sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a front group founded and funded by the Koch brothers.

    Those are the same Koch brothers whose business model is to make millions by jacking up prices at the pump, and who bankrolled Tea Party extremism, and committed $200 million to try to destroy President Obama before Election Day.

    Yeah. It’s not Obama; it’s the fault of those evil Koch brothers.

off topic —

Newt is about to speak live at California GOP.

Where’s his cheap algae gas?

Just drop a few algae capsules, guzzle a little sparkling water, jump up and down a few times (shaken, not stirred) and you’ll have your algae gas, alright!

If that fails, put the capsules in your hash pipe and smoke ’em, just like Barry O, circa 1978, Honolulu.

LukeHandCool (who, during his semester at the University of Hawaii, needed a little Mary Jane because he was having trouble sleeping because his dorm roomate would keep Luke up late at night typing letters to himself from his imaginary girlfriend. Just when Luke was about to doze off, his roomate would ask, “Are you sleeping?” and Luke would be wide awake again. Yes, Luke’s roomate was a psychology major. And yes, after he’d hang up the pay phone outside their dorm room when finished talking to his imaginary girlfriend … his change would come back to him. Luke couldn’t stay awake after a little visit with Mary Jane. It’s been decades since I’ve visited with her … but thanks again, Mary. You were a lifesaver).

I like the picture of gas pump price deal. Everyone ought to send their own pictures to President Pond Scum.

I don’t buy another one of these ‘leftist’ ideas concerning the algae. I call “bull-feces”.

Here’s a graph showing the 5 year cycle of gasoline prices in this country. Notice the ‘run-up’ in the 2008 election cycle, then the big drop-off, then the gradual increase:

    Now, Tom. Let’s keep our bio-fuels separate, shall we? Feed lot carpeting makes excellent methane…

    But on that “gradual increase” thingy…wasn’t that an Obamic goal…? Which Ed Driscoll has pointed out repeatedly was CALLED for by all the Mushroom Media bigs a few years ago.

    Funny. It’s almost like this whole deal was planned…by people who HATE our standard of living…

    or something.

This headline is rich: “Mitt Romney’s Wife Won’t Let Him Debate Anymore”

Little Mitt can’t come out and play anymore. Is Mrs. Mitt afraid that Cheerful Attack Muffin Newt might expose little Mitt for a fraud?

What’s next? Short pants, knee socks, weejins and a schoolboy blazer?

    Ann Romney was making a lighthearted joke, Nothing more and nothing less. The public is tired of the debates, and so are the candidates and their wives — all except Gingrich, as it gives him press coverage and a free platform to get noticed.

This is a link I found to Newt’s speech in California, the quality of the video isn’t great but the speech is good and the crowd appeared to love it:

On the algae-

Sounds pretty sweet. Thought up by Adrian Vance –

When I was a kid, I remember seeing gas as low as 18.9 cents per gallon. Now, in California, gas would be 64 cents a gallon even if the gas stations were giving it away. Why is that? Because the state and federal excise taxes per gallon of gas add up to that much.

When I was a kid we didn’t have gas because we didn’t have cars yet – AND WE LIKED IT. We got around on foot or on the backs of the last of the woolly mammoths, as ornery a critter as ever trod the tundra, attended by packs of wolves – AND WE LIKED IT. We had to make monthly trips into the far north, to the icy expanses of the Arctic Circle, to hunt the wily great whale and sabre-toothed ice seal from our rickety bark canoes – AND WE LIKED IT. We used the oil made from these great beasts for our torches, to light our way in the long nights as we trekked back and forth between our caves and the three or four full time jobs we all had – AND WE LIKED IT. Good men and women died on those trips, gave their all to the effort – AND WE LIKED IT. Time passed and word came of the battle between them beaver hunting boys and the fancy talkers in the red coats, and something called a ‘government’ was born, which sent forth men with guns to collect from us our ‘tacks’, but we didn’t like that shit one little bit, no sir. We fed them boys to the mammoths and wolves, which gave them gas, and we liked that shit even less, especially in the close quarters of our winter caves. Time passed, they kept sending tacks collectors, we kept feeding them off, and the stink got worse and worse. And now we can’t ourselves recall those earlier times, the good times, but the old-timers back at the caves who tend the fires and mammoths and wolves assure us with their tales of the days when we were left alone, made our own decisions, saw to our own needs, lived by our own labors, let others alone to live by theirs – AND WE LIKED IT.

    You had me believing you until you talked about feeding boys to the mammoths. Everybody knows the mammoths were herbivores … it was the mastodons that ate kids.

    I simply tell my kids,

    “When I was your age, I had to walk to school and walk back home after school … uphill both ways.”

      Henry Hawkins in reply to LukeHandCool. | February 25, 2012 at 10:26 pm

      I can’t believe I wrote that.

      NOTE TO READERS: If you go to Luke’s house, DON’T EAT THE BROWNIES.

        LukeHandCool in reply to Henry Hawkins. | February 25, 2012 at 10:43 pm

        LOL Oh ‘Enry!

        Brought back a couple of fond memories.

        Speaking of mammoths and mastodons and brownies (now, stay with me here … I’ll tie ’em all together and put a bow on it) … speaking of these noble extinct beasts and brownies … one summer I dated a cute little nursing student from Arkansas who was out here in L.A. to stay with her cousin for the summer (who was a nurse and dating a friend of mine).

        We went to the La Brea Tar Pits to have a picnic and after a nice lunch which she made, she brought out this tupperware filled with *magical* brownies.

        Do you have any idea how fascinating a natural history museum can be after you’ve had a dozen or so brownies?

        And I just love natural history museums to begin with.

        I was talking to an old customer of ours when I was in my twenties. He was an L.A. oldtimer and somehow we got on the topic of the tar pits. When he was a kid, there were no fences around the pits. He had a little dog and the dog became stuck in one of the pits. He and his friends got it out, but it was covered with tar.

        Being dopey kids, they accidentally killed it by giving it a bath in turpentine to try and get all the tar off.

        Anyway, how many times did I tell you to leave some brownies for the other guests?

        You are a P-I-G … hog!

          Henry Hawkins in reply to LukeHandCool. | February 26, 2012 at 9:48 am

          After I ate one I was incapable of the reasoning and restraint required not to eat another. And another, and another. The defense stipulates to the ‘pig’ assessment, Your Honor.

          Luke, do you know anything about the OCCUPY THIS tattoo I now have on my lower back?

          LukeHandCool in reply to LukeHandCool. | February 26, 2012 at 2:16 pm

          “Luke, do you know anything about the OCCUPY THIS tattoo I now have on my lower back?”

          All I know is that despite having ingested enough magical brownies to sink a battleship, given a couple of full-length mirrors, one in front of you, one behind, and a dirty safety pin which had been holding up one of the guest’s pants (that dirty slob with the bad cough), your hand-eye coordination and dexterity amazed the guests … until you exclaimed “Octopi piss!” and passed out. Your head hit the floor rather hard and we were concerned, but when that pit bull from next door ( the one foaming at the mouth) ran in through the open front door and started licking the blood on your back, you started giggling in your sleep, and we all breathed a collective sigh of relief.

          The party was a huge success mainly due to you. But please take a few extra algae capsules today as a precaution against imminent raging infections. We all went swimming for a while, and when we returned you had somehow removed all your clothes … and the dog was just leaving … wearing a rather disturbing, yet satisfied look on his face. He also had a cigarette in his mouth.

          That’s really all I know.

          Henry Hawkins in reply to LukeHandCool. | February 26, 2012 at 7:59 pm

          Um, do you have that pit bull’s phone number?

          LukeHandCool in reply to LukeHandCool. | February 26, 2012 at 8:58 pm

          The only thing I know about the dog is he seems to be a transient and a heavy intravenous drug user, often seen rummaging through trash bins for food and used needles … when he isn’t selling himself on the street in the local red-light district.

          True story: The nursing student I dated that summer whom I mentioned above … she called me up out of the blue years later … to ask me a question. She had become a nurse and was at some seminar or something and wanted to ask me if I was bisexual !!! She talked about “when you have sex with someone, you’re having sex with all their previous partners, too … blah blah blah …”

          I asked her why she thought I might be bisexual and she said,

          “Because you and Bill (my friend who was dating her cousin) were always laughing and giggling and acting so silly all the time … I thought maybe something was going on between you two.”

          I should’ve said, “Yes, we’re bisexual,” and hung up the phone and left her to freak out that maybe she got something from me. I guess this was during the time we knew about AIDS, but didn’t have a test for it yet.

          But I told her the truth … I’m straight and I giggle and laugh and get silly a lot … and that’s just the tip of my machismo iceberg.

    The way it should be.

Anybody remember the rumor that went around thirty years ago that some inventor had invented a pill that you could drop into a tank of water and, voila, instant gasoline? The reason these pills are not on the market, so it was said, is because the evil oil companies lobbied the government to prevent it. See, two birds trashed with one stone. Well, instead of pills, obamas has come up with algae which is just as stupid but, then he was being sarcastic. After all, oil is a dead substance while algae is made up of living creatures. I would like him to tout this theory as a campaign issue though.

Has anybody ever heard obama’s explanation as to why the US is financing oil drilling in other countries but it is forbidden in this one? Or was that why the subject of algae came up?

    Henry Hawkins in reply to BarbaraS. | February 26, 2012 at 9:57 am

    “Has anybody ever heard obama’s explanation as to why the US is financing oil drilling in other countries but it is forbidden in this one?”

    Not a tacit explanation, but suffice it to say that both wealth redistribution and crony capitalism are international efforts from this White House.

    “Or was that why the subject of algae came up?”

    A bone tossed to ignorant lefty and/or young voters, offered as evidence of the forward thinking, techno-God Obama.

    Algae very much does has a future as a source of energy because it is renewable, with a high ratio of extractable energy to mass. Algae is about 50% lipid oils by weight. However, after forty years of research and testing, the process remains decades away from large scale economic viability for any use, and far longer, if ever, before it could ever replace gasoline and diesel. Algae farms take a LOT of space and a LOT of water.

Aw, come on.. you weren’t even a little bit curious about my algae farm link? It’s not some crazy liberal progressive idea, either. The man’s a wonderful conservative.

The algae solution to gasoline or diesel production is yet another promise that “might” be fulfilled someday in the future. I wish us all luck. What about today? Does this fill my tank today? Does it do so economically, i.e. can I afford it or can only limousine liberals afford it?

You promised wind energy and solar energy would sustainably solve our problems, it hasn’t yet and will not do so for decades to come. Wind and solar are way more expensive than the current energy sources of coal, oil, natural gas and nuclear. Simply mandating it’s use doesn’t create the market economy of scale needed to make it accessible to everyone when the economics aren’t there. Gold is not cheaper than lead and it can’t be made so no matter how thinly you spread it. We are tired of your gold-plated ideas that cost us much with no reasonable means of return.

So at this point I guess liberals will be substituting an algae mandate and subsidy system to replace the failed ethanol system? How many of your campaign contributors will benefit and how far must the taxpayer go in debt for it now?
