Join the "Gas Roots Army"

Today, the AP reported that President Obama is working to re-create his "grassroots army" from 2008.

On 20 January 2009, the day President Obama was inaugurated, gas was $1.84 per gallon. Today, the average national price is $3.95 per gallon.

Does this piss you off just as much as it does to us?

In response to the President's "grassroots army", and his energy policy of raising gas prices to the same as Europe, we are pleased to announce the formation of the Gas Roots Army.

Joining the Gas Roots Army is simple. Just do it. Let the President's minions know you're here, and you're pissed.

For those who wish to be open about it, we hope to have some Gas Roots Army bumper stickers available on the internet in a few days. In the interest of full disclosure, any profits will be split equally four ways. 1/4 to Clifford, 1/4 to The Grey Man, 1/4 to researching ethanol in your tank, and 1/4 in researching ethanol to GET tanked. We will specialize in single malt scotch.

If you wish to remain a covert operative of the Gas Roots Army, all you need is a pen and some Post-Its. Just write "Inauguration Day $1.84" on a few, and stick it next to the price on the pump next time you fill up.

If you're feeling the pain at the pump while the President jets off on vacation, or raises a billion to campaign, please join the Grass Roots Army!!

What a clever idea!
However, if your fellow researcher is called "The Grey Man", would some southern whiskey be more appropriate?
Especially in Louisiana.

Maybe. But years ago I developed a taste for really really good scotch.
