Gas prices going up AGAIN? Jeez.....

 
Prices at the gas pump are rising yet again as refiners turn to producing 
jet fuel and diesel instead of gasoline, and as demand jumps ahead of the summer driving season.
Prices across the country were already high before the most recent jumps. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine hit oil markets and global gas prices hard, driving up the price at the pump as governments turned away energy supplies from Moscow. But prices are now going higher, and averaged $4.48 per gallon on Monday.
That’s up about 40 cents from a month ago, when prices stood at $4.08. Much of the most recent jump has come just in the past few days as prices rose 16 cents per gallon between May 9 and May 16.
Much as high gas prices colored the elections of 2008, when GOP vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin railed on Democratic energy policies, today’s prices are roiling this year’s political debate. Republicans are faulting President Biden’s policies, while Democrats are targeting companies for alleged price gouging.   

Experts say the latest jump is linked to a variety of factors 
including fewer oil refiners making crude oil into gasoline. Prices of both diesel and jet fuel, which are also made at refineries, are spiking, and experts say many refiners are turning toward making those more profitable products. 
 
Wuddya gonna do, huh?






Your lunch time Calvin...

 




Wanna watch some golf? You better pony up if you get thirsty...

 
That's not inflation - that's a stone cold fuckin' ripoff. 
 
According to a report in Golfweek, “A Michelob Ultra is $18, a Stella Artois $19. A glass of wine is $13, souvenir and signature cocktails are $19.” Though, spectators can console themselves with the knowledge that their brews will be served in 25 oz. cans.
With prices like this, it seems like local wine and beer merchants in the greater Tulsa area will be set up for a banner day as fans race to imbibe before entering the country club.
The black-market salad industry might get a boost as well, according to Golfweek one salad will cost fans $16. A striking sum, not just because it’s a lot for a salad, but also because the all-beef hot dog ($8), the Beyond Burger ($15), and the Butcher’s Grind Cheeseburger ($14), all come in a ta lower price than the salad.
 
So, not that there’s ever a reason to choose a salad over a hot dog or a burger, but now there’s even less of one considering it’s more expensive.
Still, fans don’t seem overly concerned by the pricing. “Well, it’s only for one day,” Samantha Ripken of Oklahoma City told Golfweek. “And I get to eat my salad watching Tiger Woods.”

Baby food shortage? Not down there...

 Florida GOP Rep. Kat Cammack reveals video of huge stockpile of baby formula at border center after being slammed by White House for sharing photo of supplies being given to migrants while Americans struggle to feed their children... 

She's another one of our Rock Star Florida elected officials.
A Republican congresswoman took a trip to the U.S.-Mexico border in to expose the stock pile of baby formula being sent to border facilities while American families continue to face empty shelves amid a nationwide shortage. Rep. Kat Cammack, of Florida, was accused of lying about the formula crisis after she posted photos to Twitter last week showing full shelves of baby formula and food at a processing center at the southern border.   
 
The congresswoman claims she went down south Sunday and 
surveyed the facilities herself, finding not only an amass of formula, but other necessary infant supplies. The GOP has criticized President Joe Biden's slow response to the formula crisis, which was caused by ongoing supply disruptions and exacerbated by a February safety recall at the nation's largest formula manufacturing plant. Abbott Laboratories revealed Monday that it had entered into a consent decree with the FDA that creates a pathway to reopen its Michigan baby formula factory, however the timeline for operations remains unclear.

All eyes on BLM and their shenanigans...

 And you knew it was a bogus outfit
 from day one, didn't you... 
 
BLM paid  a company owned by Damon Turner, the father of co-founder Patrisse Cullors' child, nearly $970,000 to help 'produce live events' and provide other 'creative services.'
 
Newly released tax filings revealed how Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors used charity funds to pay her friends and family large sums for various 'consulting' services, as well as charter a private flight. The co-founder's brother, Paul Cullors, received more than $840,000 for providing security services to the foundation. Leaders have seemingly justified the expense by saying the foundation's protection could not be entrusted to former police professionals who typically run security firms because the BLM movement is known for vehemently protesting law enforcement organizations. A consulting firm run by Shalomyah Bowers, who is BLM's board secretary and has previously served as deputy executive director, was paid more than $2.1 million for providing the organization with operational support, including staffing, fundraising and other key services.

A man described by Project Veritas as a senior engineer with Twitter has been caught admitting to an undercover reporter that the company has a strong left-wing bias, and conservatives are routinely censored. Siru Murugesan was filmed by a Veritas operative saying that the company culture at Twitter is extremely far left, and saying his colleagues 'hate, hate, hate' the proposed takeover by Elon Musk. 'Twitter does not believe in free speech,' he said, adding that his co-workers 'hated' Musk's $44 billion bid to take control of the company. 'They hate it,' he said. 'Oh my God. I'm at least like okay with it. But some of my colleagues are like super left, left, left, left, left.' Asked how his co-workers responded to the news of Musk's buyout, Murugesan replied: 'They're like, 'this would be my last day if this happens'.' Murugesan said Twitter's office politics were so left-leaning they shaped his own views, and changed him. 'Like I started working at Twitter and became left,' he said. 'I think it's just like the environment, like you're there and you become like this commie.'

It really doesn't get much sexier than her...

And thus was born the 'Truth in advertising' laws 
that we know today...
... 

The Food and Drug Administration has authorized that panties be considered protection against infections that can be transmitted from the vagina or anus during oral sex. It is a first for underwear.
The undies are part of an understudied but important area of sexual health where the few options for protection are considered cumbersome and hardly used.
“Oral sex is not totally risk-free,” said Dr. Jeanne Marrazzo, director of the division of infectious diseases at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. She said the need for protective methods was of growing importance because more “teenagers are initiating their first sexual activity with oral sex.” For people of all ages, she added, a protective barrier that is enjoyable to use could “reduce anxiety and increase pleasure around that particular behavior.”
