I have struck again

activism is FUN

so anyway, I tagged another pump late this afternoon:

I tagged both the per gallon price and the total sale price at the Speedway on Michigan Avenue in Saline, Michigan. Yes, I paid $4.159 / gallon for gas.

YourDaddy's Politics has a video round up of the Gas Roots Movement's escapades. Disrupt the Narrative has the "Promise Kept" graphic in Spanish.

Mission Accomplished (Again)

I told you I was doing this

so anyway, I tagged a pump at the Lodi Market in Saline, Michigan with a "This gas price brought to you by Barack Obama" sticker this evening. Circumstance conspired against me getting a picture, if I have time I'll swing by and grab a pic on the way to my Stoopid Business™ job in the morning.

The funny thing is, I wasn't even getting gas! I had stopped to replenish the Val-U-Rite supply, and when I was heading back to the commuter-mobile I saw that the pumps were vacant.

WINNING!!!! (or whatever the kids are saying these days)

Gas Root Activism

I'm doin' it

so anyway, I have begun my (admittedly low key) activism, as I mentioned on Monday night.

There's a long, drawn out story behind tonight's activities, but it will have to wait. I'll give you the Joe Friday version ("just the facts")

I tagged pump #2 at the Sam's Club in Ypsilanti, Michigan this evening. I opted for the peel-n-stick label with "This gas price brought to you by Barack Obama" because the color printer at the office was FUBAR, so I couldn't use P.Henry Saddleburr's excellent graphic. Hell, I fill up every third day, so I'll have plenty of opportunities to spread the wealth around.

If you tag any pumps, send me a pic and I'll post it on the inter-tube web-net thingie.

we'll have words again real soon.

Pain at the Pump

I am so doing this

so anyway, this is what all the cool kids are doing these days....

The idea is to print up a few copies of this, and post it on the pump the next time you fill up your tank. Disrupt the Narrative has the details, as well as the source code for the pic. Do go read soonest. A similar plan can be found here.

I'll post a pic when I pull this off. H/T to Ace and Glenn for the inspirational linkage.

Atlas Shrugged

go ye forthwith and see it now

so anyway, here's the first of what promises to be a vast multitude of Atlas Shrugged / Obama mash-ups. If I had any mad YouTube skilz I'd make one myself. H/T to Ace for the vid.

Atlas Shrugged, Part 1 opens today. Alas, I had to finish up petitioning the government for redress of grievances to have returned that what's rightfully mine (Yes, it's tax time again. Don't get me started....), so I couldn't go see the movie yet. I'll be sure to post a review when I do finally see it.

Speaking of reviews, Chad over at doubleplusundead has some harsh words about the movie.
