El Cheapo vs Obamagas: Pull On In and Put Some Hope in Your Tank

If gas goes to $5.00 a gallon this will not end well.

FILE UNDER: The Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A gas station on Columbia's North Main Street has been renamed and redecorated after President Obama. Two gas stations sit at the corner of Columbia's North Main Street and Prescott Road, the El Cheapo and another station with a new name -- Obama.

"I see more people come in excited with the name," said owner Sam Alhanik, who got the idea from a friend who created an Obama Gas Station in Michigan.

Alhanik has only owned this station for two months. Although born in Yemen, he says he supports America's president. "It's the first president of black people," he said. "It's our president. We like him." --

Station owner has obviously applied for a waiver from ObamaNoCare, which now has 100% chance of approval. He'll also get money from the new "Stimuli-for-the-Yemeni" program, which will be started as soon as the Secret Service agent assigned to reading everything Vanderleun reports to his master.

Aren't open borders and immigration for millions of Muslims just going great for America? All about the blackness, eh? Hey, pass the soot!

it is illegal to use the current president's name or image for commercial purposes (agree with him or not), so i would expect a visit from the secret service for these two gas station owners.

better we should try "whip inflation now" buttons left over from the triumphant ford administration, which hosted the mayaguez incident, gas lines and a bigger criminal pardon than clinton's, yet somehow doesn't get as rousted as carter. maybe it was his work on the warren commission, that beacon of integrity, that sealed his reputation. i am an apolitical ex-pat, so i don't really care. see you may 22!

I thought, when I first glanced at the image on your post, that some TEA party type was engaged in some brilliant counter-JEF (JEF--Jug Eared Friend, per Ace Of Spades HQ)

But he's sincere, apparently. Too bad. I was hoping that this would become a meme that gas station owners across the country would adopt en masse.

"...yet somehow doesn't get as rousted as carter."

Ford ran a caretaker administration in the wake of a huge political scandal, with the government divided between the parties. Carter was in office for the full four years, with his own party holding a comfortable majority in both houses of the legislature.

Mayaguez was the result of piracy on the high seas, ranking somewhere below the deliberate invasion of sovereign United States territory which Carter dealt with, with adverse results which we must still deal with three decades later.

The gas crisis of the 1970's was a result of OPEC daring to tweak our national nose in the wake of Vietnam, with the pack of motherfucking Democrats which cut off aid to the South Vietnamese (ARVN was down to twenty rounds per man per day, that's one magazine, and boiling and reusing pressure dressings) still in an overwhelming majority in the Congress.

Ford pardoned Richard Nixon. Clinton pardoned a goddamned cocksucking Puerto Rican terrorist, and several other criminals besides.

"i am an apolitical ex-pat, so i don't really care. see you may 22!

You're either an "apolitical ex-pat", or else yet another miserable dishonest shitheel Leftist. See you November 6, 2012, when we fire your Descended God.

I'm sure this is a cultural norm in some countries. Yemen isn't exactly known for its free market ideals and.. well.. class.

For a moment I thought that this was an excellent Republican strategy, but then I remembered that they have none. When the price of a gallon approaches $5, that station will be hilarious.

Is Yemen inhabited by nothing but goat-fucking morons?

Is mine a stupid question?

Acutually,I don't think it is that deep. I think that it is a ploy on the part of the gas station owner to lure black people into his establishment. Personally, my best guess is he does not give a flip about President Obama. I am african-american and would never vote for someone
because he were black and certainly would not buy gas because the owner has the face and name of a
black president plastered across the front.
