The chickens have come home to roost.
All over Denver (and I'm sure it's the same in whatever city you live in), I see people riding bikes and scooters.
It's miraculous actually. I see people who look like they haven't been on a bike in years pedaling away their high gas price blues.
And I see the same assholes in their SUV's who still haven't removed their Bush/Cheney bumper stickers chugging away in their monstrosities, no doubt paying upwards of $60-$70 to fill their tanks.
Great work you fucking losers. You sank your money into that gas guzzler because it was the cool thing to do. It made you feel cool, important and better than all those "liberal" whiners who wouldn't shut up about global warming, conservation and sustainability. Well, you showed them didn't you?
Back when we printed the Hooligan (and t-shirts with catchy slogans for said magazine), we had a saying: FU SUV.
And while the drivers of those vehicles may be saying the same thing, the joke is squarely on them.
A big fuck you to all who blindly supported Bush and his buddies while they raped everyone up the ass to make a buck. The blinders you put on must have made it really easy to avoid seeing what was going on.
