Those of us who have a problem with hypocrisy care. Even buying renewable energy it can be argued a 30,000 sq.ft. house is a waste of resources. 30,000 sq.ft. for 2 people as well, i believe.
His side encourages using less, it's do as i say, not as i do.
If you but renewable, green energy that does not pollute, it does not reduce our resources, does not produce greenhouse gas emissions.

It also promotes the green industry.

You just got caught being stupid.

Define "typical gun nut."

I think you are confusing "typical gun nut" with "typical american gun owner."

Gun nuts go on shooting sprees usually killing innocent people in the process.

I have owned guns for 47 years and not one single person has ever been threatened with,or hurt by any of my weapons regardless of whose possession they were in.

Are you suggesting that no racist rhetoric has been spouted buy some far left freaks on this board?

If you don't see racism on the left then go look at the twitter of Stacey Dash.

Racism and Anti-Semitism is alive and well and neither is acceptable or should be tollerated in any shape or form. Racists are repugnant but to imply they only exist in one form or follow one party is naive in the extreme.

The unemployment rate was below 5% until March 2008 and 7.8% when Obama took office. It shot up to 10% by October of that year and hovered at over 9% until just very recently.
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNS14000000
By the way, it stayed under 5% from June 2005 until February 2008. Ironically enough, Democrats took control of Congress in January 2008. Unemployment continued to steadily rise.
If only the majority of Democrats (and some Republicans) had agreed with Bush that Fannie and Freddie was a disaster waiting to happen before it was too late...
I have news, Bush was President until Jan 21st of 2009.

The Bush recession started in 4th quarter of 2007.

Quit blaming Bush's recession & its effects on Obama.

Please list the legislation the Democrats passed in 2007 that created this recession.

I keep asking & you right whiners keep not answering.

The U6 basically mirrors the Unemployment rate. It was 14% when Bush left office.
Bush's recession drove that rate to over 17%.
http://data.bls.gov/timeseries/LNU03327709

It was only in the two digit range right for a few months after 9/11 and a few months before the crash.

It's not that Obama didn't inherit a crappy economy.

We all acknowledge that.

It was his priorities the first two years in office with a democrat-majority congress that prolonged the recovery.

In fact, it was his priority, Obamacare, that is causing a lot of the problems we're having.

His priorities and policies have failed the American people.

40% of Every Small-Business Dollar Goes to Pay for Federal Regs

Right now, I spend more than 40 cents of every dollar the company takes in on complying with regulations.

You heard that right: more than forty cents. When I first started using that figure, people would say,‘wait, you’re talking about taxes too, right’? Nope, that is just what we spend on regulations.

You don’t have to take my word for it. The Small Business Administration recently revealed that federal regulations cost small businesses $1.7 trillion per year.

And this is before most of ObamaCare takes effect.

Democrats Plan More Tax Hikes

Schumer Previews What He’d Do in a Second Obama Term

If re-elected, President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. will raise taxes on small business in order to sustain the ginormous federal government they have built. The White House duo have done nothing to avert “Taxmaggedon,” the massive tax hike scheduled to go into effect on Jan. 1. Worse, the administration’s congressional allies are preparing to push Mr. Obama even further should he win a second term.

The No. 3 Democrat in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said Tuesday that he intends to eliminate tax deductions and credits without lowering the top two marginal tax rates. The New York Democrat thinks it’s more important that Uncle Sam pocket the extra cash that would be generated.

<quoted text>
By 2016 possession of a firearm will be a FELONY! Because of that, gun crimes in America will drop substantially, like it has in England and other safe no-gun nations.
How is it that in cities and states with tough anti gun laws the crimes committed with guns are on the increase.

A prime example of this is Chicago.

The second amendment prevents the passage of laws making possesion of firearms a felony.

If you are already a convicted felon it is already a felony for you to possess a firearm. If you obey the laws of this country the Constitution grants the right to keep and bear firearms.

More Evidence of Liberal Pussification
Des Moines Lincoln High School football coach Tom Mihalovich was recently suspended when it was decided he had violated “school bullying and corporal punishment policies” after he made a sophomore run sprints and laps for saying mean things about the varsity team. From the Des Moines Register:
http://www.thebiglead.com/index.php/2012/10/1...
Are we becoming a bunch of wimps or what?

There was a time not too long ago when it was like a badge of honor to "complain" about having to run extra laps.

Because we used to know when punishment was well-deserved.

Those policies took a 750,000 a month job losses to zero.

You think that was a failure. How pathetic.

U6 when Obama walked in the door was 14%. I wonder, what would losing 750,000 jobs in a single month change it?

But somehow people just don't react the same.

Just ask Russia.

Another case where the last guy really does need to be ignored by the right. Just ask Mitt. When was the last time he mentioned the 'success' of the Bush admin. When was the last time anyone mentioned 'success' when it came to Bush foreign policy?

So who did Mitt get for foreign policy advisers? Just ask Russia.

Hopefully, America will avoid "taxmaggedon" at the polls.
