    Come on now Gumby calling a 22 year old a child is a bit of a stretch, but since you brought it up I did a little research on your good Christian party.

    Republican racist pedophile and United States Senator Strom Thurmond had sex with a 15-year-old black girl, which produced a child named Essie Mae Washington-Williams.

    Republican pastor Mike Hintz, whom George W. Bush commended during the 2004 presidential campaign, surrendered to police after admitting to a sexual affair with a female juvenile.

    Republican legislator Peter Dibble pleaded no contest to having an inappropriate relationship with a 13-year-old girl.

    Republican city councilman John Bryan killed himself after police began investigating allegations that he had molested three girls, including two of his adopted daughters, ages 12 and 15.

    Republican Congressman Mark Foley abruptly resigned from Congress after “sexually explicit” e-mails surfaced showing him flirting with a 16-year-old boy.

    Republican executive Randall Casseday of the conservative Washington Times newspaper was arrested for soliciting sex from a 13-year-old girl on the Internet.

    Republican chairman of the Oregon Christian Coalition Lou Beres confessed to molesting a 13-year-old girl.

    Republican County Constable Larry Dale Floyd was arrested on suspicion of soliciting sex with an 8-year-old girl. Floyd has repeatedly won elections for Denton County, Texas, constable.

    Republican judge Mark Pazuhanich pleaded no contest to fondling a 10-year-old girl and was sentenced to 10 years’ probation.

    Republican Party leader Bobby Stumbo was arrested for having sex with a 5-year-old boy.

    Republican petition drive manager Tom Randall pleaded guilty to molesting two girls under the age of 14, one
    of them the daughter of an associate in the petition business.

    Republican Mayor Philip Giordano is serving a 37-year sentence in federal prison for sexually abusing 8- and 10-year old girls.
    Man this list goes on.

    Remember, Brent is used as the benchmark for far more actual oil consignments internationally than WTI. The increasing lack of reserves outside the United States, therefore, is likely to result in the expansion of the Brent-WTI spread.
    This pricing difference has favored Brent for all trading sessions except three since the middle of August 2010. The reserve crunch means that spread will now be increasing again.
    Several years ago, declining reserves would have been ammunition for the “Peak Oil” crowd that was always quick to point out the signs that we were running out of crude.
    Today, falling reserve figures have morphed into something quite different. Yes, oil is a finite resource. But the advent of huge (and increasing) reserves of extractable unconventional oil (shale, tight, oil sands, ultra-heavy) found in regions across the globe has significantly muted the “sky is falling” approach to crude.
    This has become an issue of new price ranges. But not one where $200 a barrel is in the offering. The reserve replenishment situation will be rebalanced along with supply and demand.But with one caveat…
    As the reserve crunch worsens, it will introduce another factor that will help to put a floor under oil prices. It will take the market longer to address the falling reserve balance, especially going into a period of heavier use.
    That, combined with continuing geopolitical uncertainty (now a market staple, not an outlier or exception to the rule), produces one overriding conclusion.
    Despite ample options on the supply side, oil prices are stabilizing and will continue to move up.

    Here’s why: Demand is not dropping. That’s especially true during this time of year.
    Once again, it’s useful to remember that today’s low prices were caused by too much supply, not too little demand. It’s the demand side of this equation that will keep oil prices from falling much further.
    In fact, this is the period when we begin to see a run up of prices in advance of the primary driving season.
    For instance, take a look what is happening with gasoline prices…
    While West Texas Intermediate (WTI) has climbed nearly 11% over the past month, futures prices for RBOB (“Reformulated Blendstock for Oxygenate Blending,” the gasoline futures contract traded on the NYMEX) have raced ahead by more than 25%.
    And just this morning, the continuing conflict in Libya has closed Sarir, the nation’s largest oil field. That follows earlier interruptions of the primary pipelines, along with other port and production facilities.
    As a result, Brent has spiked again in London, given the more direct influence MENA (Middle East North Africa) events have on the European market. As of noon today, WTI is up 1% and Brent is up 1.2%. Meanwhile, Brent has doubled the increase of WTI for the month, climbing 24% versus the 11% increase in WTI.
    Higher Oil Prices Ahead
    Against this volatile backdrop, the overall condition of global reserves places an even greater pressure on oil prices. It’s true, WTI can rely on more secure U.S. reserves. But on the other hand, Brent is very sensitive to the availability of worldwide reserves.

    Dr.Kent Moors: As oil prices inch forward, there’s an inevitable consequence of lower prices building that will help them climb even higher. It’s called the “reserve crunch.” Faced with significantly lower oil prices, the replenishment of oil reserves is beginning to take a massive hit. In fact, Royal Dutch Shell Plc. recently reported that it had replaced just 25% of its 2014 production. That’s just 300 million barrels of new reserves to replace 1.2 billion barrels of production. Now you know why I call it a “crunch.” It’s yet another sign of shrinking future production.Shell isn’t the only one. Other operators, large and small, have begun to issue similar statements.Now in today’s environment of surpluses, it’s hardly surprising that forward-looking production may take a hit. After all, there’s very little reason to continue producing excessive amounts of crude if it’s merely going to depress the price. But this is the kind of crunch that promises to have a big impact on both crude oil prices and stock valuations…
    Oil Prices: The Impact of Falling Reserves

    Of course, the impact of the crunch on oil prices is obvious and easy to understand. Any uptick in demand will result in a disproportionate rise in prices for oil futures contracts – especially as rates of replenishment fall.

    As for its impact on stock valuations, it’s actually the “booked reserves” – oil in the ground and readily extractable – that influences what investors will pay for a stock.

    Companies do not drill for new oil simply to add to the product flow for the refining of oil products. They also drill to add to their booked reserves, boosting their share price in the process.

    Typically, the more reserves a company has, the more it can command in the stock market. Conversely, falling reserves usually depresses the price.

    Now you might think that in times of excess supply, the reserves on a company’s books may be less of an advantage. But that’s just not the case this time.

    Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask Osama bin Laden if President Obama loves America?

    Hey Rudy, why don’t you ask one of the 11 million people who now have affordable health care if President Obama loves America?

    Be careful Norris guns can be dangerous.

    Washington (CNN)—A leading Republican candidate for Missouri's governor's office died in an apparent suicide on Thursday morning.

    Tom Schweich, the 54-year-old state auditor who'd just won a second term while running unopposed in 2014, died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported.

    The newspaper said Schweich's wife, who was in another room, heard him making phone calls -- and then a gunshot. It happened just hours after Schweich had requested interviews with the Post-Dispatch and The Associated Press at his home.

    Where do you come up with this nonsense?
    "What Texans are really worried about is the loss of the engine of their economic boom. Which was energy fracturing. In fact take Texas out? Obama has no real job creation let alone incomes"
    Last year ending in November 2014 there were 34,000 government jobs created in Texas compared to 29,000 oil and gas related jobs. The bureau of Labor Statistics said there have been 10 million jobs created in the US since the end of 2010. (LOOK IT UP) Statewide Texas lost 8 BILLION dollars in 2011 alone from agriculture and livestock loss. In 2005 there were 5.35 million head of cattle last year there were only 3.91 million head. One entire town in Plainview, Texas shut down in 2013 because Cargil the nation’s largest beef processor closed their door's citing a smaller, drought-stressed cattle herd and elevated feed costs. 2,000 employees and the town they lived in is VACANT. There are less than 200,000 jobs in oil and gas extraction in all states combined so as usual your numbers don't add up. You say "it is your constitutional right to keep and bear arms to protect yourself from people like me and our," hostile emotional tantrum". Didn't the FBI and Homeland Security just come out with a report saying this Country's greatest threat isn't from ISIS or other foreign terrorists but from, "SOVEREIGN RIGHT WING EXTREMISTS" .This intelligence assessment, which the Department of Homeland Security prepared in coordination with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, was circulated to law enforcement on February 5 but was not released to the public. They're watching "You" delusional wacko, norris. I bet your loading your gun right now aren't you. Please make sure you don't shoot yourself by accident.

    The only ones here who are deceiving are those elected officials on the far right who know they have a captive audience and use the good Christian people's faith as a tool to get their votes. Senators such as Cruz take advantage of this faith to use these votes to support their campaign donors who are mostly involved in the energy industry. His home state of Texas has been in a severe drought for several years now and he has watched cattle farms and agriculture go bankrupt while tanker trucks full of water roll down the highways in route to the frackers all day long. He understands people of faith won't question this because they believe that eventually God will provide the rain but in the meantime these energy Czars are buying up these bankrupt farms taking advantage of these hard working people of faith to further line their greedy pockets. This Republican ruse has worked well in the primaries but the truth eventually always comes to the forefront in the general elections. I appreciate Senator Boxers candidness and wish we had more like her but I guess you would rather see her at home in the kitchen, right.

    Tugging on the heart strings, Boxer told the Senate of her mother, an immigrant, who she believes would have been deported if politicians treated immigrants then as they do today:

    “I mentioned before that I am the daughter of an immigrant mother. You know, I try to think of what my life would be without my mother. She gave me my conscience. She gave me my values. She gave me all the love and support I needed to pursue my dreams: the daughter of an immigrant mother who never graduated from high school, in the United States Senate! But they would have deported my mother.”

    Finally someone said it for what it was. The only reason why Republicans have been the dangerous obstructionists they are, towards Obamacare, funding the government, passing meaningful jobs bills, etc. is because they hate him, they loathe him, and they want him to get no credit for doing anything great for this country. It resonates with our political discourse, in Congress and not. Boxer finished with what is on everyone’s mind:

    “So I say to my Republican friends. There’s s presidential race coming. Forget this last one. Get over it. Okay? Let’s work together. Listen, I served with five presidents. I’m a strong Democrat. Everyone will tell you that. But I respect the office of the presidency. If I didn’t agree with Ronald Reagan, I came down here and said it. But we had the respect back and forth. If we lost, we lost. And we moved on. And that worked both ways. I know what it is not to like the policies of a president. I get it. But don’t overdue it and make it so personal. Get on with it. Grow up. Do your job, you know? Do your job! Have respect for the office of the presidency. Don’t suddenly say executive orders are bad when the president you don’t like does it, but you don’t say one word when a Republican president does the same thing!“

    Senator Boxer, you have taken all the words and all the thoughts I could muster up about the immigration debate right out of my mouth. Thank you for that impassioned speech which will no doubt send shivers through the Republican Party’s spine.

    “I thought they were the party of ‘family values.’ Show me where that’s true? Ripping families apart? I thought they were the party of ‘economic prosperity.’ Show me how that’s true, when we know from study after study that one of the greatest things we can do for our economy and job creation is get people out of the shadows so they can go buy a home and hold a good job. They (Republicans) can’t or won’t pass an immigration bill. They will not do their job. So when the president steps in and does his job, they say, ‘Oh, this is terrible! Let’s shutdown a totally unrelated department. The Department of Homeland Security.”

    Boxer highlighted the real reason why the Republicans are causing this whole debacle in the first place — their irrational hatred for President Obama:

    “Wake up and smell the roses. He is the President, and he is doing the right thing for America ’cause he loves America. And he understands that these are people who are going to help America move on to an era of greatness.”

    “Our national security is at stake, our family values are at stake. And our economy is at stake here. So get over the fact that you don’t like the president. We get it. You couldn’t beat him. Too bad for you. But you’re in charge here, in the Senate. Do your job! Bring an immigration bill to the floor. Let’s let this Homeland Security Bill go. It’s a bipartisan bill. It’s funding for the most important thing we’re doing today. Let it go. Don’t hold it hostage to your hatred of this president, and I use that word because that’s what I think. That’s what I think.”

  • This is dedicated to right wing extremist Norris,
    Senator Barbara Boxer, who is sadly retiring at the end of 2016, took to the Senate floor for 20 minutes and delivered a catastrophic skewering to the Republican led Congress for their irresponsibility, lack of compassion, irrational hatred, and obstruction that jeopardizes our lives. This has to be, by far, the best attack on the GOP’s destructive policies that have hindered our growth and security.

    Boxer starts out by lambasting them for their reckless disregard for national security over their threats to shut down the Department of Homeland Security because they don’t want to fund President Obama’s halted immigration action:
    “This is a self-inflicted crisis, made up by the Republicans. It is dangerous, it is the height of irresponsibility, and it’s unnecessary…..At a time when we are facing serious threats to our national security, to furlough 30,000 Department of Homeland Security workers, and to force more than 100,000 front-line Homeland Security personnel to work without pay. [Yelling] Why don’t these Senators go without their pay? Give up your pay. You want to come to work everyday and stand there and look for threats to our homeland and worry about how you’re going to pay the bill for your kid? Go without pay.”

    “Give up your pay! Give up your healthcare, give up your benefits, if this is so important to you. Oh, no, they’ll collect their pay!”

    “They’re throwing a hissy fit because the President stepped in and has a policy to take care of immigration. And why did the President step in? Because Republicans refused to take up a bipartisan bill and pass it and take care of the immigration issue like they’re supposed to.”
    Boxer took no prisoners as she shot back at the Republicans who used this in retaliation for President Obama’s immigration action, which she says should have nothing to do with funding the Department of Homeland Security. For that, she calls out the GOP on their “family values” BS:

    Gumby all Presidents do lie but to single out Obama as worst President and to say he consistently lied when the guy before him might have been the worst in history is a bit telling to me and wreaks of racism whether anyone wants to admit it or not.
    Have you ever heard of this book that was written by a Fox news contributor named David Corn. It's called,"THE LIES OF GEORGE W. BUSH: MASTERING THE POLITICS OF DECEPTION". It's quit eye opening to say the least.
    When campaigning for the presidency, Bush vowed to “restore” honor and integrity to the Oval Office, but Corn uses the president’s own words and deeds to prove beyond a doubt that this claim was the first lie of many. In other instances of presidential prevarication, Bush has:
    • Brazenly misrepresented intelligence data and relied on dishonest arguments to whip up support for war with Iraq;
    • Made numerous false statements about the provisions and effects of his super-sized tax cuts;
    • Offered disingenuous and misleading explanations about the 9/11 attacks, the war on terrorism, and homeland security;
    • Lied about his connections—and those of his administration—to corporate crooks;
    • Presented deceptive claims to sell controversial policies on the environment, stem cell research, missile defense, abortion, energy, Social Security, health care, education, and other crucial issues;
    • Dishonestly claimed to be a positive campaigner while engaging in deceitful and down-and-dirty tactics during the 2000 presidential campaign and recount drama.
    The Lies Of George W. Bush is no partisan whine. It is a carefully constructed, well-developed, and convincing fact-driven account that shows how Bush has consistently relied upon duplicity to wage political and policy battles.
