I think my favorite line is:




We will move away from the Fiscal Cliff instead of going over it.


How can they do this when the deadline for this "Fiscal Cliff" is January 1, 2013.

Do they really think they can get into office before the end of the year and still have time to pass a bunch of new laws to make any effect. The Republicans in the House of Representatives have not been able to pass much more than gas for the past two years. (Or atleast that is what it sounded like to me)


I guess he believes in magic all the way around. Not only are they going to magically achieve all kinds of goals without so much as a plan but they are also going to swoop into office and save the country in a day or two.
Of course, all the TEA party folks elected so far have just increased spending but facts and Eurisko seem to hate each other.


Yes, since the GOP only has control of the House the decision was made to simply

- kick the can down the road - until we have control over the House, U.S. Senate and the

White House.

Everything will become clear to you on November 7, 2012.

- Less than 3 months away ! -

It is my hopes and prayers that the general population of the U S A has been paying attention to the goings on in Washinton, D C over these last two years.

If this were to be the case, I hope that like myself, the ENTIRE voting population will vote a straight Democratic ballot this Novermber.

If this comes true we will see the benefits of being an abstructionist and "kicking the can down the road" while waiting to "take control".

Well, it's up to the independents right now.

They have one eye on the price of gas and one eye on the GDP Growth rate.

Right now the gas price is going up.

The GDP is 1.5%.

Just one #ing coherent response from you would be awesome.
You just hit reply and type random nonsense.
Talking with you is much like trying to cut off my own arm.

You should watch the Sunday talk shows Fox News Sunday, Meet the Press etc.

- Everybody - dems and republicans - agree - that if we don't extend all of the Bush Tax Cuts

then we will fall back into a recession. There is a Ernst & Young study that backs them up.

All you have to do is read it.


I watch them.
I read it.

“Seems odd that the researchers didn’t consider the scenario in which the additional tax revenues are used for deficit reduction,” said Moody’s chief economist Mark Zandi. “It seems to me that is the more relevant scenario. And my sense is that if they did, the results would be very different.”

Indeed, the Ernst & Young study forecasts based on two different assumptions: That the higher revenues are either used to finance across the board tax cuts, or to finance new government spending. It’s only in the latter scenario that the analysts forecast significant economic contraction.

“It is telling that when the additional tax revenues are used for across the board tax cuts, then the negative GDP impact is largely washed out and the employment impact is positive,” Zandi says.

Funny stuff

Either one of the four largest accounting firms on the planet forgot basic math or tried to forget basic math.

It's better to get our oil from - our friends - in Canada than from an unstable middle east.

- Common Sense -


That oil is not coming to us.
Do you read anything?
That oil is just using our land to get by.

The Tea Party agreed to increase spending for now.

We will reduce the size of the U.S. Government in 2013.

- Fire the TSA and replace them with a private contractor - Covenant Airport Security


- Sell off GSA federal buildings and fire half of the employees - The Wrath of Jeff Neely

- Shut down the Department of Education and turn it back to the individual states

- Shut down the EPA - They are out of control losers

I do not even know what you are trying to respond to anymore. I am still waiting for the answer to the first question I asked you which was for sources. Stop playing ping pong and start responding like a coherent adult or talk to someone else. See how far your "winning" message gets when you are ignored.

So the TP folks in congress lied, huh? The whole reason they had the support they did was because they said they would not agree with more spending and would decrease it. So they lied. Great....what makes them any different than a Republican or a Democrat?

By the way, how can you agree to increase spending and expect to reduce the size of government? That's doublespeak if you ask me.

Speaker Boehner had that whole speech.

- We only have power over 1/3 of the government (House) blah....blah....blah.

........so.....we will kick the can down the road until November 2012.

I doubt it. Too many people in the states in which the pipeline was supposed to go through said "HELL NO"! That's not politics, the people themselves said no. Republicans and Democrats alike.

So why keep pushing an issue that has no support?

So they played politics instead of standing on principle.


I got it now. They are a bunch of spineless bitches that rolled over for the party. You made it very clear.

Thanks!

Phase 1,2,3,4

The storage tanks are already there in Cushing, OK.

With only 1/3 of the government, the Tea Party was forced to - compromise -.

The fundamentals will change November 7, 2012.

Are they going to simply take people's land if they say no? Are they going to exploit Imminent Domain clauses just to build the pipeline?

"Freedom and patriotism......Now give me your land in the name of capitalism!"

Ya, sounds like the Neofascists alright.

I'm sure they will work something out.

Now is not the time to be unreasonable.

There are actually pipelines going all over the place around that area right now.

This is just one more.

---------
The storage tanks are already in Cushing,OK. That's where Obama had his

phony Dog & Pony Show.

See for yourself. Go to Google - type in Cushing, OK - click search - then click on

the map to the right - an overhead satellite shows up - tanks are to the south of town.

I agree. Instead of building a pipeline to carry Canadian oil, let's stop selling our own oil and keep it for ourselves. You knew that right? We sell a majority of our oil and then import the rest to meet demand.

How is that reasonable?

There is no crisis yet.

When Iran sets off a nuclear bomb over the Saudi Arabia oil fields then we will obviously

make a few changes to ensure we have a vibrant economy in the USA with low priced gas.

There has to be a crisis before we take care of ourselves? I don't understand.

What?


Are you ok?

I don't even know how to respond to such utter crap.

Whatever.........
