Photo of the Day: Post-It Pain at The Pump Wednesday, Feb 29, 2012 at 9:33 AM EDT http://profile.yahoo.com/A6QQT763CYJ6FLFML2BDV3FVWQ Jason Lovelace I commute from Philadelphia to Washington, DC three times a week. I wish gas were $1.78 again! http://www.artinphoenix.com/gallery/grimm snowleopard (cat folk gallery) Well said. Once again we see the truth coming out – under Obama gas prices have dramatically risen across the board and will continue to do so as long as he remains in office. Fox news even has an article from Obama’s energy guru about the rising gas prices; they want the collapse of the nations economy into the hands of a new socialist dictatorship under Obama. http://facebook.com/metalchick007 Lisa Renee’ Jones I’m stealing this idea. This is awesome!!!! Anonymous Everyone grab a post-it pad and get to work. Anonymous me too. http://www.facebook.com/people/Tim-Bodley/1062306175 Tim Bodley Brilliant!!!

Anonymous I will being doing this in Maine! http://PalinsDirtyLittleSecret.blogspot.com/ USAhasNoPresidentClick4Proof Looks like Sarah Palin’s handwriting Anonymous My picture to the left (can’t see too well) is actually a picture of a post-it that my spouse and I had printed last summer. We have been distributing packs all over the east coast & midwest – perfect for gas pumps and grocery stores :). We left some at GBTV in NYC in September. It simply asks “How’s that Hope and Change working for you?” http://pulse.yahoo.com/_ORC276O2Z3ON2L4JJPBJWJBSLI Christina Sounds like we have homwork to do! Hopefully some idiot zero supporter won’t rip it off and throw it in the garbage. I’m in KY, so I will do my part in my area. Anonymous the president has NO control over gas prices. But the hope and change it’sn’t working, he’s right on that. Do you people think he does? http://pulse.yahoo.com/_LR3I4X656U47FEK4XYRP6VHJ5U Marie It’s reeeeeeeaaaaaallllly weird how gas prices were Bush’s fault but not Obama’s fault. Fuuuuunnnnnnnnnny. Anonymous He sure isn’t doing anything to help get this country to be less dependent on foreign oil. He hates fossil fuels. He has kept his campaign promise from 2008 – remember this – “Energy prices will have to necessarily skyrocket”? & they certainly are. Anonymous ..Can’t help but think the price is artificial; created by Obama so he can ‘enact change’ later to help his campaign. He’s already said No to letting the people demonstrate their own initiative in solving the problem with home grown resources. Anonymous He’s exercising his ‘power’ to stop Americans from finding/working out our own solutions…like using our own resources. He’s definitely on the Energy Czar committee. Why are we allowing these people to have this tool to manipulate us and paying them big bucks to continue? General Kota Yes he does when he refuses to drill or open more oil refineries and remember the key stone pipe line. Doing all of these will make the price of oil go down but I rest because you are just a zombie of Obama and don’t think for yourself. General Kota Don’t use logic on the left it hurts their brain. General Kota Would you stop stocking Sarah Palin boy you are a creepy small minded fool aren’t you? General Kota Let’s all do it and show the people who is really behind the price of gas. http://PalinsDirtyLittleSecret.blogspot.com/ USAhasNoPresidentClick4Proof stocking or stalking?

I am on my way to my stcky note stash and doing some writing and then I am on my way to the gas station with my sticky notes and post them. Thank to the person who created this “bestest” sticky note ever! Anonymous Barack Ahmadinejad could not do anything about the gas prices even if he wanted to. He must believe it is better to get in bed with the oil thieves then upset them and end up six feet under. In other words same story different president. (America is Screwed.) http://profiles.google.com/bryangrossman Bryan Grossman It’s so fun to watch your posts and see how you and other folks respond to them…. I still cant decide if you actually believe what you are posting…. http://profiles.google.com/bryangrossman Bryan Grossman You see this is the infamous “Aaron Freszar”… see what he posted there ” I’m just leaking the truth government poster” he thinks you (and I for that matter) are a piece of AI software there to discredit him… He is quite the piece of work… http://www.facebook.com/people/Jerry-Smith/100000454083900 Jerry Smith It would be fantastic if we started leaving post-it notes to remind the geniuses who voted for Obummer what they’ve done to us. http://pulse.yahoo.com/_BGC7U7QUFEWSSV3H4IFHLAFK54 mudslide The prez may have SOME control of prices…SOME, but in reality it’s still a world market. Could the administration do more? Sure – loads more. Will they? Not in OwebamaCorp…. Anonymous $3.65!? Lucky! Try living in the People’s Republic of California where gas is, and has been for some time, well above $4.00. General Kota It is basic economics 101 supply and demand if you have more supply then demand the price goes down. What a minute I just figured out why the left hate the rich the rich are smarter than they are. Anonymous Are you suggesting that Government policy, regulation and “face” have no effect on the price of gas? Do you really believe that? I know that there are many influences…supply, demand are the easy ones….the current bad guys are the speculators….(even though they have been around for 100 years it is only now that they are manipulating the market, right?). What about deals with different states, foreign policy and expectations for the future? All these impact the price of gas…and MOST can eventually be traced back to the economic and foreign policies of the guy in the oval office. This was true under Bush, Carter, and now Obama. To say the President has no control over the price of gas is to say economic policy makes no difference to the economy. I doubt that even you would state that sort of nonsense! http://pulse.yahoo.com/_K4256377VMQCZ6WGPFLM34TG3U kinikia A sticky note with a similar message could be placed near the meat freezer, milk cooler, etc. in grocery stores. Also very effective! See this link where this idea was born several months ago http://yourdaddy.net/2011/04/25/the-sticky-note-campaign-hits-georgia-supermarkets/ Richard Michalek Love the sticky note!

Anonymous love it! keep reminding your fellow americans where this administration has taken us. we are being raped of our own $! Anonymous Supply and demand is supposed to work. I can’t remember; it is something I recall from several years ago. I am no economist, but because of Wall Street, they can manipulate the price, supply and demand is being countermanded. Does anyone here recall that from approximately two – three years ago? I was listening to an economic’s analyst on KWY News Radio out of Philly. I cannot recall the details. I will call the station and see if they can recall this. But I agree — we should boycott them into submission. It would require sacrifice on everyone’s part however. We either hang together or we will hang separately. If the government would allow us to distill our own ethanol — no I had a permit for an energy alternative experiment for a relative in a school project. Didn’t know whiskey was so easily made.

I will copy that and post it later. Things that can sink Obama’s reelection are disappearing from websites world wide. News at eleven! Anonymous Yesterday I went to Post on Human Events (a conservative site). I wrote a post that was disallowed. I had said nothing mean or acrimonious. So I asked disqus (the moderators) why? Instead of responding to me they posted my complaint on H.E. Obviously I must have hit pay dirt with this censorship thing. I went onto JPOST and other Israeli sites and I found an article. I went to click on the link (for a spit second it appeared — the article concerning Obama’s back turning) and Obama’s web page appeared atop the article with solicitations of donations etc. Obama does not want the “back turning incident” or others that can politically damage him — thus we are encountering censorship for the first time in US history. Disqus is now controlled by leftest thinking, apparently. Folks, wake up and smell the coffee. Get involved and disseminate this information. Tomorrow I will repost the status that started this merry go round. “Commodus cannot rule — he must not rule!!! Anonymous Nubarim says: Do like I did and voted with my feet.

I suppose it was Obama’s fault in the summer of 2008 also when gas prices topped $4.00 a gallon for the first time in history? If I remember correctly before that date, gas prices fluctuated a lot more than they have in the last 4 years. http://www.facebook.com/people/JulieAnn-Holmes/100003341310272 JulieAnn Holmes Great Idea – Our group had some post-it notes pre-printed like this and we slap them on all over the place. Grocery shelves, dressing rooms in department stores, front door of the bank, gas pumps, great responses!

All he has to do is release fuel from the reserves that will make us feel much better and everyone will vote him back into office , this guy is the appitimy of arrogance , along all the lies of this administration . if anyone votes this criminal back in you all deserve it.

Even better is the message Obama sent earlier in the week when he said we can’t “drill” our way out these high gasoline prices. I say “why not?’ http://profile.yahoo.com/Z3ZR3UHIO72SNIORBMOGVULQLY President First of all, there’s no way to know, so all we’re doing here is speculating. Since we are on the topic of speculation, lets continue. Rep/Dem doesn’t matter. What does matter is who would have done the best job regarding gas prices. One of the Republicans that would have been in the White House, had Obama not won it, is none other than the once-governor of Alaska. Alaska, as you may know, is one of our leading producers of crude oil. Guess what make gas prices go down…supply and demand of crude oil. It stands a reasonable chance that, in speculation, our gas prices would have NEVER reached $3 a gallon under such an administration. Anonymous Yes, this is American greed at its best! Why is it that we are being told ahead of time that come May, we can expect prices at the pump to be well over $4? Also, why is it that when oil drops a buck, gas prices drop only 1 cent? But, when oil goes up 50 cents, gas prices jump 5 cents a gallon? Again, the speculators are playing with oil prices and us poor suckers are being taken to the cleaners by the gas stations.

Maybe some company will print them. My husband bought a ball cap at a flea market, printed by a commercial company, that says “Don’t blame me, I didn’t vote for Obama”. So many people have wanted one that I wish we could have purchased them by the case and resold them–we’d be richer by several thousand. By the way, can somebody give me a good reason why they think that going to all the expense of building the Keystone Pipeline would lower our gas price? Also, why do we need the Keystone Pipeline for Canadian tar sand crude (which is very abrasive and has no significant history of being sent through a pipeline) going thousands of miles through our country when all they need to do is refine the stuff in Canada or in northern North Dakota and then send it through the existing pipelines? Of course, that would mean they would have to issue a permit to ND!

Are you aware that our country actually has a surplus of oil right now, that we are doing more domestic drilling than we did under Bush, and that demand is down nationwide? How’s that “Let’s let the free market run wild, and Wall St. speculators and greedy oil companies break the economic back of the country” working out for you? Obama 2012!!

For one thing, money is being printed at a crazy rate, so the dollar is weak as a result of Obama trying to spend his way to a recovery. That drives up the price of oil. Non-private land and offshore oil production is down under Obama. That loss of supply drives up the price of oil. Yes, middle east unrest is a factor, but what’s the proper response to that? Become independent of middle east oil by dumping sewage in the desert and hope we get enough algae-derived ethanol out of it? Really? But what really makes your “free market run wild! speculators! greedy oil companies!” argument disingenuous is the fact that neither you nor Obama really think that these high prices are a problem and that the prices should actually go even higher.
