On the other hand, what better place to make this point than a lube shop?

Gonna need a quick lube sooner than we think at the rate we are going. :-)

I love free speech.

myrenovations on February 27, 2009 at 3:06 PM

Apparently, I missed the line where they were handing out the lube. It might have been less painful if I hadn’t–but I doubt it.

Well, they’ve certainly progressed beyond the old “tax and spend” canard of the 70′s. Now, in 2009, we have progressed to “spend and tax”.

Yields are rising across the spectrum as the Treasury sucks up every available monetary unit of capital all over the world to try to pay for Obama’s spending jihad and it still isn’t enough.

We may be witnessing the unfolding of one of the greatest economic catastrophe in modern history in real time.

I still say the stimulus package should include a KY Jelly subsidy to be given to all taxpayers to ease the pain

Fox Business News has just reported that although the Dow has been in steep decline, shares of K-Y have risen through the roof due to astronomical demand since January 20th.

Hopefully the business pictured has a massage table so the customers can at least be some comfortable. Do they provide a colonoscopy while you are being serviced?

WashJeff on February 27, 2009 at 3:15 PM

Thanks for the giggle…it’s been a while.

Village Quicklube in Newtown, Ohio rocks!

maverick muse on February 27, 2009 at 3:24 PM

Remember, Folks, this is only a tax credit not a tax cut. The IRS is not changing the tax brackets and this extra income will be taxed next year. I’m getting the $250 check, so I’ll be paying federal and state tax. Net to me not so much. Whoopee!

Kissmygrits on February 27, 2009 at 3:28 PM

Sign Sign everywhere a sign
Blocking out the scenery breaking my mind
Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign

Kini on February 27, 2009 at 3:30 PM

You know, Quicklube and Stimulus are somewhat associated in a way.

Kinda like grabbing the ankles.

Kissmygrits on February 27, 2009 at 3:28 PM

Yeah, some woman called into Rush today, talking about that.
She said that there was some way to avoid it, like changing yyour exemptions with HR or something.

checks are going out according to our dear leader…

gatorboy on February 27, 2009 at 3:37 PM

Sharpton needs to mobilize his troops and picket the racist lube shop post haste!

Grafted on February 27, 2009 at 3:38 PM

There ain’t enough lube in the world. The government got the gold mine, and we got the shaft.

backwoods conservative on February 27, 2009 at 3:38 PM

This just might be hilarious if it weren’t so damn scary…

Ltlgeneral64 on February 27, 2009 at 3:39 PM

Had a road here for years that was called “Suicide Hill” and it was closed about 20 years ago. Sadly, we may have to reopen it if things continue.

hillbilly on February 27, 2009 at 3:41 PM

I’m so lucky I get paid every 2 weeks, cuz that’s like, lemme see carry the one, $26 dollars every pay period. That will almost pay for my bus fare to, you know go to work.
Of course if I quit my job it will be easier to pay my mortgage.

Grafted on February 27, 2009 at 3:38 PM

That right there would tempt me to actually drive from Georgia to Ohio just to get an oil change.

jimmy2shoes on February 27, 2009 at 3:46 PM

Step right up.

Get your free $13 a week.

Only $24,000 per taxpayer.

Yeah, but more importantly, do you find it stimulating?

If not then you, as the screwee, must be doing it wrong, because the Government, as the screwer, is never wrong.

Yoop on February 27, 2009 at 3:58 PM

OMG! I love that! If I lived near there they would get all of my business.

Lizzy on February 27, 2009 at 3:59 PM

now it makes cents

That is either a bad pun or a very bad speller.

Pelayo on February 27, 2009 at 3:59 PM

By the way, that $13/week is from your withholdings. It is taxable income for next year. Nice faux tax cut

Valiant on February 27, 2009 at 4:10 PM

We need to take it dry. It has to hurt bad enough to inspire people to vote these clowns out of office in the coming elections.

And a very special thanks to the idiotic voters who pulled the lever for a narcissistic cipher who is either the stupidest man on earth or truly hates America.

hillbillyjim on February 27, 2009 at 4:51 PM

What a deal!

You too get to borrow 25 grand for just 52 bucks a month that the government gives you to pay it back with.

Of course we’ll all have to try to figure out how to pay off whats left over and then add it on to next years budget but what the hell.

I laughed… until I wanted to cry, because I finally realized it’s not a joke.

I get stress migraines, and I’ve had about one a week since mid-January. I don’t know how I’m going to handle the next 4 years.

jimmy2shoes on February 27, 2009 at 7:46 PM

Great sign!
Did you check out the website? Does that look like Obama laying under the car? They even provide the Obama approved service of topping off “the air in your tires”. And you can tell them how great they are on their web polls. If I lived nearby they would have my business.
Go Village Quick Lube!! ;)

atxcowgirl on February 27, 2009 at 8:17 PM

Every time candidate Obama spoke, there were major signs and flags everywhere (even the gods were holding up signs), but, liberals already had the blinders on and some of the republicans (not conservatives) were blind sided in the name of hope and change.

My only wish is that that this war on our economy does not take a bigger toll than all the real wars combined.

OneConservative on February 27, 2009 at 9:21 PM

The last time I was this alarmed the doc just said, “Bend over and spread um.”
At least he used KY jelly.
