    All the ammunition we need to impeach! :D

    So far, during the presidency of Barack Obama, the price of a gallon of gasoline has jumped 83 percent, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

    During the same period, the price of ground beef has gone up 24 percent and price of bacon has gone up 22 percent.

    When Obama entered the White House in January 2009, the city average price for one gallon of regular unleaded gasoline was $1.79, according to the BLS. (The figures are in nominal dollars: not adjusted for inflation.) Five months later in June, unleaded gasoline was $2.26 per gallon, an increase of 26 percent. By December 2011, the price of regular unleaded gas per gallon was $3.28, an 83 percent increase from January 2009.

    The price of unleaded gasoline never reached the 10-year high of $4.09 back in July 2008 under George W. Bush’s administration, but it did get close.

    By May 2011, gas prices hit a high under the Obama administration at $3.93, about four percentage points away from the July 2008 high.

    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    Bacon and ground beef have gone up 100% here.
    The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.

    The gas prices concern me more than the bacon price. I don't buy bacon that often, outside of the occasional trip to the Big Boy breakfast buffet.

    If this doesn't start a revolution to get Obama out, I don't know what will.
