An Algae-Based Economy? (They Feel Our Pain)

As gas prices go up and up and up, the price of everything else will go up, too. All the stuff on the shelves at your local supermarket, and just about everything else you buy, has to be transported to the store by trucks: and the trucks all run on gas.

So as the price at the pump climbs to $4 a gallon, and then $5, and then $6, and everything else you need costs more, you might wonder what our glorious national leaders are going to do about it. Might they decide to allow the pipeline from Canada, after all? Maybe lift the moratorium on drilling in the Gulf of Mexico (remember, that moratorium only applies to American oil companies; Chinese and Brazilian companies are making a fortune)?


Instead, what the current occupier of the White House recommends as the solution to our problems is… are you ready for it?… Algae!

Yup, plain old pond scum–just dump it in your gas tank, and off you go.

Oops, wait a minute–we don’t have the technology to do that yet. Putting algae in our cars will only … well, damage them. But hey, maybe in another 10 or 20 years…

When they get bored with simply abusing us, our leaders like to insult us, too.

  1. WELL, here we go again, jump off the cliff and hope it turns out OK
    No need to sit down and count the cost of anything. After all, we have
    the easter bunny, the tooth fairy, the wizard of oz and captain midnight
    who have all the answers for us. No need for brains, either. We have
    somebody always looking out for us and giving us instructions on every move to make. Just relax, folks and go back to sleep; everything will be OK.

  2. Algae Technology ….. you know it makes sense …. in the scheme to ruin America and turn it into a Fifth World Country!

    1. I don’t know about you, but I can hardly wait to turn in my car for a seat on top of the overcrowded bus that’s always late and also carries live chickens that flap in your face and crap in your lap.

    1. Who, me? Actually, I missed his “pond scum” comments. I used to listen to him all the time, but kind of went off him after he got involved with Elton John.
