As I begin this journey through the world of blogging, I will explain the title, "Uncle Tom's Chapping". I will tell of things that chap mybehind and may tell you some things that will chap yours as well. Oh well, I guess that is what these things are intended to be.
The first item on my chapping list is the price of gasoline. I noticed that as of this past Friday, the price of regular has dropped to as low as $2.00. Wow, have you ever seen people so pleased to overpay for gasoline. After the weeks of hovering around $3.oo, we are all so proud that it has fallen so far. Well, guess what? That is exactly what the intentions were all along. We were so scared that gas would hit $5.00 that when it was lowered?!? to this new price, we were exuberant and relieved. You don't suppose that this was the real price they wanted all along? Of course it is! Now the pressure is off the oil companies. They have been such good Americans to get the price down and now we wont squeal and complain so loudly. This is an election year, after all, so of course every politician will claim it was their doing. AND THAT JUST CHAPS MY BEHIND!
