cause god hates me?
God loves you.
WE hate you.
be for real....you hate who "god" tells you to
God tells me to love you...but I don't.
then you are a fake zealot...which is sort of disappointing cause i thought you were the read deal...terrible guy but real...youve always been pretty embarrassing but your ability to stick to your backwoods thinking was one of the things that made you authentically awful...
but now you are just an ignornant elder and not even an amusing one...
good luck with that
Wow, that escalated quickly.
Bring back the duel!!!! Me vs the Retard 5th&Lehigh. WHOOHOO!!!
And whaddya know, surprise, surprise, yet another left wing TOTAL HYPOCRITE Who has used capitalism to get filthy rich.
STERN: You like Obama?
MACPHERSON: Yeah, I’m living in London and I’m socialist. What do you expect?
According to Forbes, Macpherson possesses assets around $60 million. She is also known as the founder and primary model for a series of business ventures including Elle Macpherson Intimates, a lingerie line, and "The Body," a line of skin care products.
That's pretty funny. She's probably not smart enough to be embarrassed by it tho. I haven't listened to Howard in ages but have had several different semi-intelligent adults tell me that he's the best interviewer out there and gets folks to say stuff they'd never say to other people.
Damn...I've failed 5th and lehigh's expectations.
Should I laugh or cry?
That exchange got a little personal for my tastes. I have few rules of thumb, but one of them is to stop short of wishing cancer on anyone.
Obama loves high gas prices, no question about it.
Oil and Gas Executives Blast Obama
Bruce Vincent, president of Houston-based oil and natural gas producer Swift Energy, said, “these have been the most difficult three years from a policy standpoint that I’ve ever seen in my career. They’ve done nothing but restrict access and delay permitting. The Obama administration, unfortunately, has threatened this industry at every turn.”
Don't be an ass.. Obama doesn't love high gas prices... It's a just necessary evil to pander to the parties ultra left flank. I think Obama is more of a moderate than he appears. He just has no spine to stand up to the special interests that have taken over the democratic party. Obama's not calling the shots anymore.
Are we talking about gasoline prices or gas prices? A common mistake.
People frequently use "gas" as short for "gasoline".
The confusion is.......is Obama in favor of higher gasoline prices?
Swift Energy is a natural gas producer.
Natural gas is at all time lows, primarily due to new production wells in Ohio, Pennsylvania and New York. The Dakotas have been a bonanza for gas producers in the mid-West.
Gasoline is a refined product.
Jesus, what a fucking whiner:
“The key thing that is driving higher gas prices is actually the world’s oil markets and uncertainty about what’s going on in Iran and the Middle East, and that’s adding a $20 or $30 premium to oil prices.”

“Obviously, we wish Solyndra hadn’t gone bankrupt. Part of the reason they did was because the Chinese were subsidizing their solar industry and flooding the market in ways that Solyndra couldn’t compete. But understand, this was not our program per se. Congress–Democrats and Republicans–put together a loan guarantee program.”

“When I came into office there has been drift in the Afghanistan strategy, in part because we had spent a lot of time focusing on Iraq instead. Over the last three years we have refocused attention on getting Afghanistan right. Would my preference had been that we started some of that earlier? Absolutely. But that’s not the cards that were dealt. We’re now in a position where, given our starting point, we’re making progress.”

“When I took office, the efforts to apply pressure on Iran were in tatters. Iran had gone from zero centrifuges spinning to thousands, without facing broad pushback from the world. In the region, Iran was ascendant.”

“We’ve made sure to do everything we can to dig ourselves out of this incredible hole that I inherited.”
- February 23, 2012
“We thought that it was entirely appropriate for our governments and our agencies to try to root out waste, large and small, in a systematic way. Obviously, this is even more important given the deficits that we’ve inherited and that have grown as a consequence of this recession.”
- November 9, 2011
“When I first walked through the door, the deficit stood at $1.3 trillion, with projected deficits of $8 trillion over the next decade. If we had taken office during ordinary times, we would have started bringing down these deficits immediately.”
- February 1, 2010
“Look, we do have a serious problem in terms of debt and deficit, and much of it I inherited when I showed up.”

“I inherited a big debt.”

“We inherited the worst recession since the Great Depression, a banking system on the verge of meltdown. We had lost 4 million jobs by the time I was sworn in and would then lose another 4 million in the few months right after I was sworn in before our economic policies had a chance to take root.”

The BP Gulf Oil Spill
“In this instance, the oil industry’s cozy and sometimes corrupt relationship with government regulators meant little or no regulation at all. When Secretary Salazar took office, he found a Minerals and Management Service that had been plagued by corruption for years –- this was the agency charged with not only providing permits, but also enforcing laws governing oil drilling.”

Decline of the nuclear stockpile
“Among the many challenges our administration inherited was the slow but steady decline in support for our nuclear stockpile and infrastructure, and for our highly trained nuclear work force.” (This one was offered up on Obama’s behalf by Vice President Biden).

The Election of Sen. Scott Brown (R-Mass.)
“The same thing that swept Scott Brown into office swept me into office. People are angry, and they’re frustrated. Not just because of what’s happened in the last year or two years, but what’s happened over the last eight years.”
- January 20, 2010
“I took office at a time when many around the world had come to view America with skepticism and distrust. Part of this was due to misperceptions and misinformation about my country. Part of this was due to opposition to specific policies, and a belief that on certain critical issues, America has acted unilaterally, without regard for the interests of others. And this has fed an almost reflexive anti-Americanism, which too often has served as an excuse for collective inaction.”

The Financial Crisis
“We inherited a financial crisis unlike any that we’ve seen in our time. This crisis crippled private capital markets and forced us to take steps in our financial system — and with our auto companies — that we would not have otherwise even considered.”

Thanks for posting this. It is nice to see reminders of how complex the world is and how the Onion was correct in November 2008 when its headline said Black Man Given worst job in America (paraphrasing.)
Are you sure it didn't say "Black Man Does worst job in America"?
I kid, I kid.
Reading political articles online at National Review, and then reading the comments, is the most surreal experience. There's this mind-blowing split between people who love Romney, people who don't but put up with him, and people who'd rather Obama win (even though they believe it will lead to the "downfall of the Republic" or something similarly ill-sounding) than a liberal/moderate/RINO like Romney.
It is surreal. Maybe some self-selection bias of the craziest people commenting, but my goodness. They had better unify or Obama wins easily.
"And I try to har-mo-nize with songs the lonesome sparrow sings...
There are no kings inside the Gates of Eden."
It's hard to know how the upcoming election is going to turn, but contrasting the administration's commemoration of the second anniversary of the passage of Obama Care (not a word spoken), with the numbers of these folks protesting it, I get a good sense of which way the wind is blowing:
Kathryn Jean Lopez writes on NRO: On the second anniversary of the signing of the president’s health-care legislation, Americans gathered in 140 cities to protest the Department of Health and Human Services mandate that requires individuals and institutions to violate their consciences and purchase plans that cover abortion, contraception, and sterilization. To stand up for religious . . .
cracking me up.
OBAMA PREVENTED FROM DEFECTING TO NORTH KOREA!!
Unattributed sources hear, "Let me go, I want to be with my comrades, away from the freedom-loving fascists of Amerika"
President Obama made his first visit to Korea
I made this argument a few posts back, or on another thread, that the battle in our nation now is between the old spender pols of the Democrat Party, and the young 'non-spenders' of the Republican Party (before you launch at me, I acknowledge that the Democrat spender pols are not the majority, but they ARE the leaders, and the 'thrifty' Republicans - like Paul Ryan - are few and far between, and have yet to reflect the majority for the party).
Anyway, it looks as though Romney may get that generational conflict, and I'm glad - not because I want Republicans to win, but because I don't want the younger generation to be screwed by us greedy old folks.
...The government’s record-breaking debts “are not frightening to people my age, because we’ll be gone,’’ Romney argued, but “they ought to be frightening to death to people your age!’’ He regretted not doing a better job of getting that message across to younger voters. “You guys ought to be out,’’ Romney insisted, “working like crazy for me and for people like me: conservatives, who want to keep the cost of government down and give you a brighter future...’’
First of two columns‘I Don’t mean to be flip with this,’’ said Mitt Romney during a q-and-a with students at the University of Chicago last week. “But I don’t see how a young American
The generational conflict between the spenders and non-spenders is nothing compared to the generational conflict between the socially progressives and the social conservatives. The idea of debt as oppression in the long term is much more abstract than the oppression of laws denying gay people equal rights etc.
