I've just come back from filling my Focus up - 60, a fraction under $100 flipping heck! And that's the cheapest supermarket stuff I can find.

But I think we're near a tipping point rather than riots (they're more recreational than political here). We've sort of been there and done it on the fuel prices demo's and protests etc. Everyone has begun to realise it's a bit like being King Canute, so...

People are now wondering about the alternatives - Interestingly Nissan have just started advertising an all electric car on the TV. (I don't normally watch car ads but I was glued to that one.) My neighbour and I were moaning about fuel prices the other day and he was musing about putting an outdoor electrical socket on the outside wall quite seriously.

It won't take much...

Frankly I'm surprised the Americans haven't ripped themselves apart yet.

On the topic of violence, here's how the left-wingers approach this election.

Behold, Obama's voting base. Real classy, eh?

Please dime21.

You do yourself a disservice quoting a Twitter account and then using it to broad-brush left-wingers.

You can do better than that.

Oh please. Like there aren't ignorant nutsos on both sides. And I'm sure a search on Twitter would yield the same type of results regarding threats against Obama.
