aye, a decent article...except all this "..Many liberals.. have applauded .." and "..Democratic embrace.."
correct, we fumed when Bush did it and ya'll were silent. Now, it's like 'business as usual' and you want to make it an issue. Where the heck were you before?

there's a certain doc in Athens told my wife directly she had ovarian cancer.
...first thing she said to me after she finished crying was "take me to Italy".
he treated her with utter disdain when she sought a 2nd opinion.
she's fine, he was wrong. And she got a trip to Italy.
seriously thought about beating him with a bat. But Italy was way cool. So is she.posted @ Wednesday, December 11, 2013 - 07:34
@TeeWee: better yet, ask them if they think something has been wrong with our health care for years and what do they think should be done differently.
any of them answer 'we have the best in the world', they are either directly lying or woefully uninformed.
course if you just want to pick yet another candidate based on slogans, then we will continue to have a govt of slogans.posted @ Tuesday, December 10, 2013 - 09:52

it's a team sport mentality. They study their rivals, with no intention to include them.
the only possible surprises are when members of the same team vie for positions.

@jtsim: 'the networks'?
1- I doubt the writer ever looks at 'the networks' long enough to know if they covered a story or not
2- scant few of the 'scandals' Fox covers turn out to be actual newsworthy scandals.
3- few people get their news from 'the networks' these days.
4- so all this same yak you constantly hear all day every day by Fox, Limbaugh, Palin, Hannity, this writer et al...is all the same made up nonsense that gets traction solely by repetition.
'Main stream media'....Fox and Clear Channel ARE the mainstream media.
It's sad and funny...they're the same ones who coined the phrase "low information voter" and conned the dumbest into repeating it daily.
...and somehow...somehow they've convinced people that only they have the facts and secret information that 'the liberal mainstream media' won't cover...EVEN THOUGH you read it yet once again right here, today, in front of you.
Mind boggling.posted @ Saturday, December 7, 2013 - 08:42
"...when the President blames Fox News for the problems that we have .."
this, after a nasty article blaming a mysterious mainstream liberal press?
What world do you people live in?
ALLLLL day long, every day, if I turn on the radio, work out at the Y, catch a TV on at a restaurant where they have TV's on...allll day 24/7...there is some schill making noise about Obama's latest 'scandal'.
While simultaneously shouting 'there is no coverage'.
For example - Here, right here...in the paper you are right now reading...is 'coverage' of exactly what the writer claims is not being covered...exactly as there was yesterday ...and the day before...and the day before...
How do people block out that reality and claim the illusion is real?posted @ Saturday, December 7, 2013 - 06:47

@Farmer GA: ".. why Statists, who say they don't like the "rich" man and admit that D.C. is owned by the rich, want to give more power to to the Federal Government, thereby giving more power to the rich. "
start with a false premise and run. What statists? If a person believes the govt should be 'of the people'...this does not equal statist.
'Unless the "wealth hoarder" in question has bags of money under his bed, his money is helping the economy." - ah, yes, the Cayman's are known for their wealth creation. Derivatives - awesome help, eh.
...so, you're saying the govt is hurting the economy despite the best efforts of the super rich?posted @ Friday, December 6, 2013 - 09:51

"Thanks to millions of insurance plan cancellations, among other things, retailers are not expecting holiday cheer this year." - actually, according to the National Retail Federation,it still expects total holiday sales through year-end to rise by 3.9% from a year ago.

it's okay to be rich - it's not okay to be rich at the expense of others.
it's wonderful to be a wealth creator - but not to be a wealth hoarder that limits the wealth creation of others.
references to 'class warfare'...with nary a nod to who's winning.
references to 'statists'...with no acknowledgement of who owns our politicians.

thanks for the non-existent link to the article you keep referring to. Guess we'll just have to take your word. 'LA Times reported', or John Stoessel had a piece in the opinion page? Big difference you know.
98% is a correct figure. Don't know where you got your made-up refutation. My background in science is current and solid. (reminds me of the article yesterday showing a 176% increase in folks looking up the word 'science'...join the bandwagon, eh).
Oil got the 1st ever 'tax loophole' in the tax code. The oil depletion allowance, a massive tax write-off, predates any mandates you now claim are the reason. The oil companies themselves call the current subsidies not for mandates, but for exploration - their words.
like I say, I can't continue an argument if you don't allow facts and make stuff up.
'Agnotology'. The study of how ignorance arises via circulation of misinformation calculated to mislead. Yeah. Hook, line, and sinker.posted @ Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 15:30
@TeeWee: 98% of scientists and the CEO of Exxon agree on global warming...but you say they are all wrong...yes, I see a pattern.
if there were such a great cost/benefit ratio...then why are we subsidizing oil, coal, nuclear...and as the original article states...Ga Power?
it's not that they are better...it's that they are abundant and now. And they have enough money to make sure there will not be competition and their transfer of wealth will continue.
but it's easy to argue your point when you disallow facts and turn a blind eye to the real costs of fossil fuel.posted @ Wednesday, December 4, 2013 - 11:15
@TeeWee: so you read an article and now feel informed? Neat.
we put a man on the moon in the 60's...but green energy - too hard. We got missiles that can find and go down a hole miles away...but green - too hard. The CEO of Exxon said that global warming is real and man-made by fossil fuels, but that the problems will be handled by engineering...but green energy - too hard. We can finally build safe nuclear plants (this time we really mean it)...but green - too hard.
Notice a pattern?
while daily cash flows into Big Oil and Coal and guaranteed high profits for Ga Power ...and you say "green energy is the ultimate form of wealth transfer". geez.
