Do you not see how a nonaligned nation can accomplish things unobtrusively that "The Great Satan" cannot?
Hey, why does not our greatest ally help us out here? Our greatest ally takes and takes, yet somehow never seems to give.
True, the Koch Bros. provide a simple explanation.
In the Tea Party mind, the only reason to set up a non-profit organization is to let anonymous donors fund political campaigns. See, e.g. Lois Lerner. So any contributions to a Clinton charitable foundation must be to pay for Clinton campaign ads.
Right-wngers expect everyone to be just as crooked as they are.
So building dams makes it rain? I can't think of a drop of runoff that doesn't get intercepted by a reservoir somewhere.
Ed Klein needs to move some product ("Blood Feud") before it hits the remainder bin.
Transcripts only matter for Dem candidates. GWB was PROUD of his gentleman's Cs. He was in college to have FUN, not to be a greasy grind.
Note that popularity is inversely proportional to voters' familiarity. Thirsty boy Rubio, Rand, and Cruz are shopworn. Walker is the mid-season replacement who shows well against all the reruns on the other channels.
Consider the IP and the barriers to entry for a hamburger stand. Nothing HP can do could match it.
His first election, Scott pretended to be a moderate. Once elected, he scurried up the ratlines with a dirk between his teeth and nailed the Jolly Roger to the mast.
"Mommy " Reagan did a creditable job from 1981 to 1989, didn't she? I'm sure HRC will be fine. At least she won't sell arms to Iran or poison gas to Iraq, like Nancy's administration did.
1. All gasoline in California must be a special winter formulation that makes importing gasoline impractical.
2. The refinery workers' strike meant that refineries undergoing maintenance could not be brought online.
Normally a refinery strike would have no income, because engineering personnel could run it just fine. But limited supply increased the price at the pump.
But now the strike is over, so the hourly refinery workers can complete the maintenance tasks.
Senator Obama traveled to his ancestral homeland, where he was shown around by a presidential candidate, much like when Mitt Romney was taken to Israel by Sheldon Adelson, and introduced to PM Netanyahu.
But I would be interested to hear more about the deals Obama worked to broker, which instead of making peace between warring factions resulted in death and displacement.
Then why does the US repeatedly wield its veto pen when it comes to Security Council resolutions addressing Israel?
Obama debt? GWB ran gleefully from office, his last words being addressed to Obama: "Tag, you're it!"
The Clinton surplus had convinced GWB that he could slash taxes while funding his new Medicare Part C out of general revenues. Then he put two wars on our nation's credit card -- total cost at least $4 trillion and could be as much as $6 trillion, per Nobel economist Stiglitz.
Then, after Bush's housing bubble burst (How soon they forget Bush's Ownership Society, meant to put low-income Americans into housing they couldn't afford) income taxes plummeted, yet the economy needed a stimulus to keep it going. Everyone from FDR to Hitler knew that Keynesian spending works, at the cost of a temporary blip in the deficit. At that point the $800 billion stimulus was inevitable.
