The Council’s Ruling — Necessities of Life

This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Which necessity of life is hardest to afford?

The Council issues the ruling of ‘gasoline,’ but was unable to agree on a rationale.

Connie offers this opinion, joined by Tom and Job:

Gasoline, because I fully believe the greedy American oil companies are taking us for a ride, at the expense of our economy and mental health.


Erin concurs in the judgment, joined by Chloe:

Gasoline. In order to work (to pay for life), a great many people depend on cars, public transportation, and other forms of transportation that use up gas. Not only is it expensive, it’s bad for the environment as well. If a person can’t get to work, she can’t pay for any other necessities, either.


David concurs in the judgment:

Gasoline — I spend at least 100 to 150 dollars per week just on gas.


Steve concurs in the judgment:

The cost of energy has tripled in the past decade. Horrible.


Mike dissents:

Housing — in many suburban areas, it far outpaces minimum (or even higher) wages.


Josh, Djere and MC-B played no part in the determination of this issue.

Next time: What is America’s strangest cultural tradition?

    Tom concurs with my opinion and yet I am silenced on this issue and my name is stricken form the record.

    You can send that complaint letter directly to WINC Communications. I plan to call them soon myself.

    Sounds like you should’ve joined me over in the mental health category anyway…
