Your daily BT stupid.


Ha ha! That Barack Obama and his stupid tire pressure gauge ... what a maroon!

Obama's Deflating Campaign

... Obama's solution is to tell people to inflate their tires. "Making sure your tires are properly inflated, simple thing, but we could save all the oil that they're talking about getting off drilling, if everybody was just inflating their tires and getting regular tuneups," Obama said. "You could actually save just as much."

But how many people are driving around on flat tires anyway? He thinks this will increase efficiency by 3%, but there's no guarantee that even 3% of cars need tires inflated. Obama goes on and on about alternative energy, but there are no foreseeable alternatives to oil at all in the next 50 or even 100 years.

Um ... whoops (emphasis tail-waggingly added):

According to the Department of Energy, underinflated tires alone cost the country more than 1.25 billion gal. of gasoline annually—roughly 1 percent of the total consumption of 142 billion gal. According to the Annual Energy Outlook 2007, published by the Energy Information Administration, offshore drilling would increase domestic production of crude oil by only about 1 percent.

What nightmarish world it must be for these poor benighted sots to believe everyone is as ignorant as they are.

Holy Christ in a Honda, some people are still talking about it as if it's the entirety of Obama's energy strategy!!!
Are they that stupid of just that dishonest? Or some combination of the two?

They're the type of people who truly believe that reality gets created by sheer force of will. The only thing required is that everyone else agree with them, despite the absence of compelling arguments and evidence.

They only shut up when the crisis is too severe to be easily ignored any longer.

You left out part of the article CC: "Will maintaining proper tire pressures make a huge difference in the enormous amount of oil we import? No. But it can make a dent, albeit a very small one."

What a moron I am....

CC said...

OK, Jonathan, I'm actually going to give you a chance to go back and read everything carefully, then realize why you sound like a total buffoon. Otherwise, sure, I'll smack you down. But I'll let you figure out first why you're being a doofus here.

Unless others want to do it for you.

Maybe Jonathan needs to become more familiar with energy policy. Even Paris Hilton has a better handle on it.

Not even then. Too busy screaming blame.

Who is fucking around with the blog template. Looks all stupid.

All better now. Thank you for removing that stupid BT tagline that made it all squirrely and quite frankly was a stupid move in the first place.

Sheena said...

Oh... and what does the DoE say about energy puristas who whine about inflated tire policies yet still own cars and can't get off their ass to walk a few blocks to the grocery store for discount steaks?

doe says it's all just a figment of your imagination. who knew you had one?!
