Maybe you would be happier if Obama lectured us again about how Christians want to blow up Malls? Or how racist our police departments are in America? At this rate I think Obama is running for President of Yemen next. Thoughts?
Average electricity prices for companies have jumped 60% over the past five years because of costs passed along as part of government subsidies of renewable energy producers. Prices are now more than double those in the U.S.
Nope 27% and the US 5% Unless you're willing to take out a loan of 10 Trillion we couldn't reach Germany's 27%
In 1950, the American people had a great love for the U.S. Constitution.
In 2012, if you are “reverent of individual liberty“, you may get labeled as a potential terrorist by the U.S. government.
In 1950, the United States loaned more money to the rest of the world than anybody else.
In 2012, the United States owes more money to the rest of the world than anybody else.
In 1950, the U.S. national debt was about 257 billion dollars.
In 2012, the U.S. national debt is 59 times larger. It is currently sitting at a grand total of $15,435,694,556,033.29. Surely our children and our grandchildren will thank us for that.
One of the only things that is constant in life is change.
Whether we like it or not, America is going to continue to change.
Back in the 1950s and 1960s, about 70 percent of all American adults were married.
Today, only about 50 percent of all American adults are married.
We are more independent, less religious, more addicted to entertainment and more doped up on prescription drugs than Americans used to be.
We have a higher standard of living than Americans in 1950 did, but we are also drowning in an ocean of debt unlike anything the world has ever seen.
For a lot more on how the U.S. economy is doing in 2012, just check out this list of interesting facts.
So is America 2012 a better version than America 1950 was?
Have we made progress since then or are we going backwards?
In 1950, the United States was #1 in GDP per capita.
In 2012, the United States is #13 in GDP per capita.
In 1950, redistribution of wealth was considered to be something that “the communists” did.
In 2012, the U.S. government redistributes more wealth than anyone else in the world.
In 1950, about 13 million Americans had manufacturing jobs.
In 2012, less than 12 million Americans have manufacturing jobs even though our population has more than doubled since 1950.
In 1950, the entire U.S. military was mobilized to protect the borders of South Korea.
In 2012, the U.S. borders with Mexico and Canada are wide open and now there are 1.4 million gang members living inside the United States.
In 1950, there were about 2 million people living in Detroit and it was one of the greatest cities on earth.
In 2012, there are about 700,000 people living in Detroit and it has become a symbol of what is wrong with the U.S. economy.
so you're saying the 1950s were better than the 60's after JFK cut taxes? The 50s were good but saw 3 recessions and the 60's saw a boom. Why are taxes the only factor? There were a lot less Regulators and stupid regulation back then. Much of the welfare state hadn't started yet that started in the late 60's. One could argue that things were great PRIOR to the war on poverty. LOL...You have to be a complete idiot to only consider one variable
We don't have a revenue problem we have a SPENDING problem. Billions into worthless windmills? They might make Gore and Pelosi's brother millions but they don't help the rest of us.
You know no facts Erazor only cheap personal insults. A sign of ignorance
I disagree no democrat likes nuclear and that is the ONLY viable alternative to hydrocarbon sources... after sinking billions of taxpayer dollars solar and wind make up less than 5% of the grid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I blame the media for not properly vetting this guy. Just being a liberal is no excuse for looking the other way
Sure sure I know you're smarter than that. Anyone with high cholesterol knows what they've been told for years and all the scientific reasoning has now changed and the same thing is happening to climate change formerly known as global warming lol.
all you have to do is look at the yahoo complaint thread at the bottom of this page you're in there along with your other id's zero etc. Its not hard to get messages deleted you need multiple id's and a few browsers and or shadow ip addresses. Its a real problem with yahoo allowing multiple id's and there TOS automated deletion system is a joke. To your credit you stopped deleting posts as frequently as you once did. Really no point in trying to eliminate free speech it ALWAYS finds a way.
that was Erazor and his many id's he stopped doing that mostly because its an issue at Yahoo complaint list so no doubt he curtailed that kind of thing recently. You must have hit a nerve though for him to resort to that childish censorship again and draw attention to himself
Recommendations Thursday from a government advisory committee call for an environmentally friendly diet lower in red and processed meats. But the panel would reverse previous guidance on limiting dietary cholesterol. And it says the caffeine in a few cups of coffee could actually be good for you.
The report says dietary cholesterol now is "not considered a nutrient of concern for overconsumption." This follows increasing medical research showing the amount of cholesterol in your bloodstream is more complicated than once thought.
The committee says available evidence "shows no appreciable relationship" between heart disease and how much dietary cholesterol you eat, but it still recommends eating less saturated fat. As in previous years, the report advises limiting saturated fats to 10 percent of total calories.
The panel doesn't give a specific recommendation for how much cholesterol — or eggs — a person may eat.
((((Science changed as new evidence came to light. This is how Climate change/global warming is going. There are so many more variables known and unknown that a simple one to one relationship of CO2 and temperature. Silly. Political hacks like Obama and Gore have no right to hijack science to push their own Agendas!)))
