Going forward, the only way to increase the price of gas will be to tax the living hell out of it. Much like we do with cigarettes.

commented on Why Are Conservatives Fighting Contraception?
There is a more sinister force at work, economics. Conservatives know that capitalism needs a steadily growing supply of cheap, unskilled labor to exploit. There is no better supply of this labor than teenage and unwed mothers. Therefore if you eliminate easy access to birth control, you get a surplus of babies from disadvantaged backgrounds which feeds your labor pool and keeps the price of labor down. The argument against birth control is essentially a (labor) supply and demand argument and their "religious" views are just a smokescreen for continued exploitation of the working class and the poor.
