Paying more at the pump - Hawaii News

There are 374 comments on the Honolulu Star-Bulletin story from May 20, 2009, titled Paying more at the pump - Hawaii News. In it, Honolulu Star-Bulletin reports that:

The state Legislature quietly let expire a tax exemption on the sale of gasoline in Hawaii, meaning that drivers will pay an extra $40 million a year in state taxes starting July 1. With the average price of a gallon of gas today costing $2.553 after fuel taxes are added, it will mean that on July 1 the gas will cost 9.6 cents more per gallon.

<quoted text>True. But there's nothing like losing the popular vote like my Bushie did the previous election and still steal, I mean win the White House. We were lucky we had Roberts and that Secretary of State for Florida to help us out.
You see what I mean about how we do things? Teddy Stevens told me long before they decided Bush was getting in. He said it was lock. The problem was making it look legitimate.
This Coleman / Franken thing tho is different. Teddy told me they don't have anywhere near as much influence this time as they did in Florida so they have to keep things in the open.
Like you I thought we elected Presidents using the popular vote and was unaware of the Electorial College. I must have been asleep in Civics Class. Imagine my embarrassment when some school children had to explain how it has worked since 1776.

special interest groups in washington are like the unions here in Hawaii. They will continue to sink the economy with the help of both parties.

Obama is empowering these special interest groups by not pushing for term limits in washington and policies that will limit these special interest groups from bribing politcian.

So May 30 2009 is old news to you? the more you cover up for your friends up here and your fake messiah makes you look like a fool with lame excuses...lol
millions he use to buy her a ring, an entourage of 500 traveling to europe in a short time...spending more than any other president in history for a short trip while the nation is in recession?
He used millions to buy her a ring? Sure would like to see that ring. Why is it your concern on how much he spent on a ring? I'm sure he's able to afford to purchase a ring from his own pocket. Maybe it's because you could only afford a turtle shell ring and bracelet or plain jealous! Stop the nit picking because you're running out of legitimate issues to rant about. Just to yap about nothing is comical and boring. You're beginning to sound like a little child or better yet, an old lady..yak,yak,yak,yak yak all the way to your deep puka.

Aint it the truth joey? I had a 6 year old explain it to me. That's when I realized handlers come in real handy. You simply pay them money and they give you all the answers to everything. he he!

I don't have handlers, I have a guy we refer to as "The Cleaner", very much like that guy in "Pulp Fiction". When Big Joe speaks his mind, there's a whole lotta cleaning going on.

No surprise. We had this situation before. Gas did reach the 3 and 4 dollar marks. Just invest on an economical car already which can add up to a lot of savings.

I would put the fat mf's on roller skates and make pygmies bull-whip them to their destinations.

Think about all of the gas.
