More of Obama's Energy Plan
— Ace

Back to the future, it seems. Okay, these are 70's era energy PSAs, but pretty much they're Obama's plan.

More here, and here, and even here.

I hate to burst the Chosen One's bubble, but the energy crunch did not end due to conservation. It ended because of increased production.

Thanks to Warden.

1 What happened to that graphic Knocked Up with Edwards? I wanted to use it as an avatar to piss some one off.

2 "...but the energy crunch did not end due to conservation. It ended because of increased production." Don't confuse the Obamassiah with facts. He wants everyone miserable and dependent.

4 "If everyone kills one of their neighbors, we could reduce our energy consumption by as much as half!"

How about NOT abandoning civilization or trying to stop the carbon cycle, Dumbasses?

5 How about if we all released as much carbon as possible into the atmosphere. The cost of heating tropical Boston during the monsoon season (winter for those of you born before Obama saved us all) would be quite small. Air conditioning can be run on nuclear power. problems? no, solutions!

Oh Ace, you can't mean that!  Next you'll be telling us that the Berlin Wall didn't come down because "the world came together."

7 So sorry, but strictly speaking, the energy crunch in the 70s didn't end exactly because of more drilling.  It ended because price controls on oil and/or gasoline were ended, thereby allowing the suppliers to make some actual money, which made them willing to drill more.  I can still remember the dire predictions of gloom, doom, destruction and all-round civilizational collapse that would occur when gasoline hit $1.00 per gallon.

8 The energy crunch didn't end because of step 6 of an 8-step process, it ended because of step 3...

9 Sheesh...the obamanation is like the West Virginia wolf that chewed of three legs and was still caught in the trap.

10 As a group, the Chosen One's minions are likely the dumbest cohort of our population.  I wish there were some hard numbers to back that up, but it is truly the only way to explain why they follow Him.

CAFE standards increase, ostensibly to save resources and reduce pollution and suburbs and strip malls and increased oil production ensue.  Make it easier and cheaper to travel and people travel more.  Try explaining that to Them.

14 Wait a minute; Obama telling people to inflate their tires?  Was that a photoshop or was that an image of Obama riding a bicycle with a deflated rear tire?  Did anybody check him for sweat?

15 I like how the moron with the sheepdog and guitar tells you not to preheat the oven too much, but then leaves the friggin' door wide open. Damn Pat Boone wannabe.

That was 'That's Incredible.'  'Real People' had John Barbour, Byron Allen, and Sarah Purcell.

And now I'm slitting my wrists for knowing that by heart.

17 I am so surprised no one remembers Americathon...(the movie)...it would be a great slublog or if someone wanted to youtube into infamy...

http://www.amazon.com/Americathon-John-Ritter/dp/6301650433

The premise of the movie (made in 1979)  is America runs out of gas and we have to live in our cars and jog and then a telethon was needed...hollywood was better back then eh?

you HAVE to love this review:

HEH

<blockquote>This is a really funny movie, but had great foresight--it was made in 1979 before Ronald Reagan put us into mega debt. It's a strange view of the future where people live in cars since they can't afford to drive them anymore, jog everywhere...the Arabs and Israelis have joined forces...and America is flat broke and about to be foreclosed. Rent this on a day when you need a good laugh!</blockquote>

Amazon. Documenting Democrat ignorance and idiocy since the 2000's.

20 That was 'That's Incredible.'

And the blonde was Cathy Lee Crosby.


Now excuse my while I go commit seppuku.

Because the place was full of natural gas. After they finished shooting the commercial, he forgot, lit a cigarette, and perished horribly in the explosion.

There. Feel better?

You should buy generic Nolvadex if you are a serious bodybuilder and buy Zithromax against severe bacterial infections.
