On E

By

Sitting in my car at the gas station. Right next to the pumps with my driver's side door open. All ready to pump but one little problem exists. I forgot my debit card. No cash either (what is cash?).

I am in a big hurry. Meeting some possible clients across town, although my town is only 5 miles wide, in less than 15 minutes. Tank close to empty. Darn!

 

I wonder aloud. Why do we not have some type of gas entitlement program? It is not really my fault that my tank is on E. Come on now, with the price of gas, and the MPG of my older sports car, I should not really be held responsible for buying gas every stinking time my tanks gets low. Add to that the fact that I am sincerely trying to add to my communities economy by brokering a big deal here.

What if I was on my way to the hospital in a life and death situation? What if I was an illegal immigrant who could not pass the E-verify stuff, and thus could make no money? What if I was unemployed and on the way to job interview? What if I was on my way to be the best man (?) in a transgender wedding? What if I was on my way to a big protest?

Lifetime politicians who pander to entitlement junkies, listen up!

I keep a $20 bill in my little information book in the glove compartment.  It is only used for emergencies.

But that is just me.

And hey, I'm ENTITLED TO IT!     ;>)

They have entitlements for everything else.  The schools give out free lunches and free breakfasts and free condoms.  Government housing, government cell phones, government healthcare, why not free gas?  Heck throw in a free car too while they are at it.

Living in Southern California, being "on E", has a different meaning. ;)

One thing the progressives have a habit of doing is equating society with government. I have been in your shoes (I am married and having no cash is a common thing, but I digress...) and I was able to get a couple of gallons of gas by giving someone my business card with a promise of paying them back. This notion that government should provide for the people is just crazy in my book. Do I like borrowing from complete strangers? No. Should I be more responsible in the future? Yes. Should I expect the government to bail me out? Absolutely not. For what the government gives, they can get back and they have to take it from someone else to give it to me.
