Holy Criminalizing Crime Bill Flying Rodent PerKin

The U.S. House passed a bill today that would make gasoline price gouging a crime punishable by fines and imprisonment for up to two years.

The legislation, passed by a vote of 389 to 34, also covers crude oil, diesel, heating oil and biofuel prices. The bill was rushed to a vote under rules that require support from two- thirds of the voting members for passage.

What next!!!

Criminalize War Profiteering?

Where will this all end???
The gouging bill is ``pretty toothless,'' said James Lucier, a senior political analyst with Prudential Equity Group Inc. ``It's all about posturing and political cover.''

Robert Slaughter, president of the National Petrochemical and Refiners Association, said past investigations of industry practices have concluded ``without finding any fault.''
