They’ll turn us all into beggars ’cause they’re easier to please.

I was driving home from morning mass today and passed the gulf station on main street in Fitchburg.

The sight of regular at $4.17 was bad enough but Diesel at $6.30? That’s a disaster and not just for people with German cars.

This means that every single product that you buy will cost more because every single product you buy is delivered by truck.

However there is something even worse.

The primary difference between diesel and home heating oil is the way it’s taxed. This means that every blue New England state, including those who fought tooth and nail to keep pipelines and other energy delivery systems out, are going to have a ton of trouble affording to heat their homes.

To say this is going to decimate the middle class is an understatement, but to our friends who want us all dependent on government this is a feature not a bug.

If you want to know the cost of letting a stolen election happen, now you know.

    Not only trucks & German cars run on diesel, but tractors & other farm equipment do. Triple whammy: little fertilizer for food, expensive fuel for equipment, and little transportation to get the food to consumers. An American Holodomor?

    Great post, although the “Beggars” quote comes not from the InstaPundit. but one of my favorite bands, which I’ve written about for DTG, the Rainmakers. Decline and fall! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLzFhOslZPM
