I've heard the same about fracking. That it's really a lease buy, inflate, and sell off, last person owning the lease gets fried.
Thanks. At least you agree the numbers are better, and that raising taxes on the richest of the rich won't destroy Western Culture.
Judson Phillips in full tilt meltdown.
“Tyranny is on the march,” Phillips declares on the TPN website, also emailed to members of the group, adding that business owners who are not allowed to discriminate against gays and lesbians are “slaves” to the “great liberal state,” aided by “French Republicans” like Brewer.
What is really cool is if you read the article, Judson is quite colorful on all the varieties of same sex pastries that might have to be created.
Funny, I never think about such things. Those opposed to same sex marriage always seem to know a rich repertoire of activities, mores, procedures, and customs same sex couples engage in.
Why is that? Why so much thinking by the repressive right on these subjects? Any psych majors out there?
This has just failed in AZ. Creationism, "The Flintstones" as historically accurate, all of these idiotic religious ideas fall to nothing, unless bible thumpers can get government power to enforce their crazy minority views. Religion requires lifelong indoctrination and elimination of critical thinking.
AZ 1062 is a watershed. It not only dashes the hopes of so many small minded bigots, it opens the fatal gap in the two main GOP factions: crazed religious fascists vs money grubbing manipulators.
It is bewildering for duped tea baggers to see Mitt Romney favoring Marriott profits over the Prophets of the Old Testament.
Bloomberg: (on shale oil 'boom')
Just a few of the roadblocks: Independent producers will spend $1.50 drilling this year for every dollar they get back. Shale output drops faster than production from conventional methods. It will take 2,500 new wells a year just to sustain output of 1 million barrels a day in North Dakota’s Bakken shale, according to the Paris-based International Energy Agency. Iraq could do the same with 60.
As I've said before, US producers need sky high oil prices or it becomes unprofitable.
Why do you think the Koch Bros. are buying politicians? You don't really think they care about abortion or who marries who? They need to stop renewable energy. They don't want 'all of the above' when PV and wind push down the price of oil to below it's extraction price. When that happens they don't make less money, they make no money. Zero. Nothing. They have billions at stake.
I think the Koch Bros. should do a better job getting their minions in line. After all, they've paid good money for these candidates.
It will go down in history, the arrogance and ignorance of the GOP: running against Obamacare in 2014, just as the nation turns to embrace it.
Seek help. Tell your mental health provider that you are constantly projecting. They'll know what that means.
WASHINGTON — Closing the books on a fiscal year in which the federal budget deficit fell more sharply than in any year since the end of World War II, the Treasury Department reported on Thursday that the deficit for 2013 dropped to $680 billion, from about $1.1 trillion the previous year.
In nominal terms, that is the smallest deficit since 2008, and signals the end of a five-year stretch beginning with the onset of the recession when the country’s fiscal gap came in at more than $1 trillion each year
Now that this has occurred I'm sure we'll hear how "Obama doesn't control spending, the House of Representatives does".
I recall someone explaining to you that the deficit would be coming down just in time for the Nov 2014 election.
You all have a problem here in Cruz, a big problem. He is going to lose elections for you. Just like Sharron Angle, Todd Akin, etc, the rest of these mentally disturbed tea baggers did.
2014 is the last possible year for the GOP. By 2016 the Hispanic demographic will have inched up, changing toss ups races to lean democratic, lean democratic to solid democratic, lean GOP to toss ups. There will be no survival of the GOP after that. You'll get the short end from now on.
Sure the GOP can opt for a bigger tent. Trouble is, for each minority they attract, two fundamentalists will walk out. The bigotry that has built the GOP will be it's undoing.
Cruz is going to #$%$ enough races to spoil it for 2014. He is such a crazed megalomaniac. I'll grant that he can be highly effective. Luckily, too insane to do the GOP any good.
What I know about bought and paid for shill candidates is what is important. Peter's is taking on the Koch Bros. Like all cowards, they can't stand a fight.
Quote:".... she supports health care reform that truly makes coverage affordable and accessible — that doesn’t kick people off their plan, force them to switch doctors, or increase their premiums.”
And exactly how and what is a plan that makes coverage affordable, doesn't kick people off, increase premiums or force them to switch doctors? Certainly nothing the GOP has proposed.
All GOP plans have the provisions: if you ever lose your insurance, any pre-existing conditions come into effect. If you get sick, your insurance can be cancelled and you get to go into an exorbitant cost pool. Gee, I can hardly wait! Won't that be fun?
The GOP is losing ground every day on health care. By November their backs will be against the wall.
By 2016, they'll be campaigning for "improvements to Romney's Mass. plan, you know, the ACA."
Oh, yeah. Saddam Hussein's incredible army. The US really showed him who was boss. We entered a war completely based on lies. We lost 5000 brave souls, with 40,000 wounded for life.
The US outspent Iraq on armament by about 100 to 1.
No American can set foot in Iraq today without an armored column and air support. Some victory.
Every time I see "In God We Trust" on my money, already.
Where in the Bible does Jesus say: "Verily, I say unto you: Discriminate against same sex couples. Bake them not wedding cakes lest ye go directly to Hell"?
Next thing you know, black people will not have to sit at the back of the bus. What is this world coming to!
Same study showed a majority of Americans now either support Obamacare as is, or want it kept and fixed.
It will continue to gain popularity as people find out how good it really is, it's not 1000% as expensive, there are death panels, and all other GOP Koch Bros. funded misinformation and lies is proven false.
The all powerful House of Reps' Darrell Issa didn't lay a glove on her. After countless hours of hearings and thousands of pages of documents she was completely exonerated in all phoney scandals. Even far right demagogues noticed that.
