Mr. President, It's Cold Outside
In 2000, when George W. was elected, I made certain decisions that were consistent with my view of the world. I expected a bellicose foreign policy, tax cuts, huge deficits, a weak dollar and the American standard of living to fall. I was not disappointed.
So, one of the decisions that I made was the purchase of oil stocks. Afterall, this was the all oil administration with Bush and Cheney. The oil industry took Bush and Cheney to the party and they sure as hell wanted to dance.
In case you're wondering, my oil stocks have doubled since 2001. Throw in the dividends, and the pain of a Bush victory is mitigated. I call it, my consolation prize. I wonder though, what is the consolation prize for all those moral values voters? Why buy the cow when you can have the milk for free?
Speaking of the high price of oil, all of you low to middle income Americans in Ohio, how about those heating bills huh? It's cold out isn't? How many of you Bush voters are asking for government assistance with your heating bills? If only we kept statistics like that.
President Bush has released only two thirds of the money that Congress has allocated to assist the poor with their heating bills. I'm sure that he is very busy.
For this couple, it was too late.
