Your tax dollars at work. Last year, your taxes paid this:
Fossil fuel subsidies:$521.73.

Your bitching about green subsidies is misplaced.
That's impossible. Last year? 2012? Your figures are not correct. Come back when you have accurate information for 2012.

Why would you be silly enough to parade yourself as a "Democrat" mother after the liar-in-chief Obama has proven to be such a disgrace to the Democratic Party. Wake up and smell his snakeoil, woman!

Wow, "acidpunk", I'll bet tropical cyclones even killed dinosaurs 100 million years ago.
But our concern is on what kills PEOPLE today. And in the future.
You think my family reunions have anything to do with the science? That just shows how little you know about science OR families.
So what makes the storms that "killed dinosaurs 100 million years ago" different from storms that kill people?

oh but 'b', he has done so much, when the roof of his fireworks shack collapsed he turned green and let the blackberry bushes cover it over. you can't even tell that all of his garbage is on that hillside. his 'magic' car has not been towed home yet from the bar down the hill, so we can't compute the fantastic milage that thing has been getting. he has been in the 'special' class for so long that he looks down on normal folks, we didn't get to ride on the 'special' bus so we are out of the loop, and just don't know the real stuff. it only rains after the dance has been done. gee wizz 'b' you should have known that.

Me and my fellow Democrats will vote Democratic NO MATTER WHAT.

Even if Obama wrecks the economy and the country (which I don't think he is doing), we Democrats will move on to vote for new Democrats that promise a brighter future in a clean green diverse world free of homophobia, racism and sexism.

You should have stopped at "Even if Obama wrecks the economy and the country", because that is exactly what he is attempting to do. What a shame that you cannot or choose not to understand that! One does not have to be a "democrat" to embrace those other beliefs, but if you are so stuck on stupid as to believe that, too, you are welcome to fantasize.

Republicans and right wingers in general are running scared. As the income divide worsens, the working Americans turn to the Democrats in large numbers for 'family values' while the wealthy tend to turn to the GOP. They get a little support from the really poor religious right but they need a lot more. This lowers their numbers drastically in most riding except for those 'wealthy enclaves' where they can rub shoulders with other rich whites and splits the vote in the rest of the regions with them being outnumbered by working families.

While gerrymandering of electoral boundaries guarantees the re-election of incumbents under almost any circumstance, the number of 'rich enclaves' is limited so in many cases they cannot muster the numbers to defeat the masses.

The only solution for them is pumping money in election advertising and it has failed to turn it around. The US is headed to a one party rule if they don't find some other way to rig the system.

So you cannot blame him for being scared and obsessed.

As the income divide worsens,[talking point bullshyt omitted]
The 'income divide' has gotten worse under Obama.

>>But what Obama conveniently leaves out of his sermons is that income inequality has grown faster on his watch than any time in the past two decades, at least.

Research by University of California economist Emmanuel Saez shows that since the Obama recovery started in June 2009, the average income of the top 1% grew 11.2% in real terms through 2011.

The bottom 99%, in contrast, saw their incomes shrink by 0.4%.

As a result, 121% of the gains in real income during Obama's recovery have gone to the top 1%. By comparison, the top 1% captured 65% of income gains during the Bush expansion of 2002-07, and 45% of the gains under Clinton's expansion in the 1990s.

The Census Bureau's official measure of income inequality called the Gini index shows similar results. During the Bush years, the index was flat overall finishing in 2008 exactly where it started in 2001.

It's gone up each year since Obama has been president and now stands at all-time highs.

It's worth underscoring that the growing income gap under Obama isn't the result of the rich getting fabulously richer. Nor is it any sort of indictment of "trickle down" economics.

Instead, it is the direct result of Obama's historically weak economic recovery, which has left the rest of the country falling behind while the wealthy have managed to make gains.

Census data show, for example, that the poorest 20% of families saw their real average income continue to fall each year from 2009 to 2011 the last year for which the Census has data while the top 20% recouped losses suffered in the recession.

Lies, misrepresentations, baseless accusations, and more lies. That's all you've got. If you had evidence, you would produce it.
But....you can't.
Failing to offer even one example followed by logic and reason does little to legitimize your claims. On the other hand I CAN offer examples to back up my statements:

You are a PHUCKIN PERVERT who lurks on these sights to molest unsuspecting people like Kristen.

Try "misreading the CHARTS", try misreading the graphs.
