The mindset of our administration

Mark Steyn has an item up from last night about our esteemed Secretary of Energy, Steven Chu. Chu, you might recall, once stated that “we have to figure out how to boost the price of gasoline to the levels in Europe.“ Aside from the fact that Chu appears to be getting his wish (notice how gas prices, after a slight dip the last couple weeks, are rapidly heading back up?), check out this smugly conceited piece of dreck he recently spewed forth regarding old-style light bulbs:

We are taking away a choice that continues to let people waste their own money.

Get it? People like Chu think it is their job to decide what you do with your money. As Steyn writes, "So what? I waste my own money on all kinds of things." As do I, most especially on golf. Maybe I should contact Chu and ask him to suggest a better choice ... oh, wait, that would have to be mandate a better choice for spending my money.

In conclusion, Steyn says it best:

Secretary Chu and his colleagues took a trillion dollars of “stimulus” and, for all the stimulating it did, might as well have given it in large bills to Charlie Sheen to snort coke off his hookers’ bellies with.

The Obama administration will achieve it's goals. After all printing and spending the currency into oblivion/worthlessness is just what the government of economic superpowers such as Zimbabwe and Argentina did and gas prices in those countries hit the same level as in Europe before heading into orbit.
