HOMER, DEBIL LOVE YOU, MAN, BUT, TRUTH IS, WE NEED TO STOP TRYIN' TO LEAD ANYBODY UNTIL WE TAKE A LONG HARD LOOK AT WHERE WE GOIN'. PEOPLE ARE A DISEASE. THEY WRECK EVERYTHING THEY TOUCH AN', LIKE CHILDREN, ARE UNWILLING TO LET GO ONCE THEY/WE TAKE HOL'. THIS WEBSITE SURVIVES BY SELLIN' L'IL GIRLS TO LONELY WHITE GUYS. AT SOME POINT YOU JUS' GOT TO TAKE AN UNVARNISHED LOOK AT YOUSELF (NOT YOUSELF, PARTICULARLY, BUT SORT OF EVERYBODY... IT A FIGURE OF SPEECH) AN' DECIDE WHETHER WHATEVER GOOD THAT HUMANS DO IS OUTWEIGHED BY THEIR/OUR SHEER STOOPIDITY.
THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE VOLUNTARILY HANDED THE PLANET TO CHINA, INDIA, BRASIL... THEY DID THIS BECAUSE THEY CONVINCE THEYSELVES THAT IT OK TO DO WHATEVER YOU CAN TO MAKE MONEY, THAT PEOPLE ARE SOMEHOW SUPERIOR TO OTHER LIFE FORMS... ROCKS EVEN. UNTIL WE DEAL WITH THIS FUNDAMENTAL DUALITY, THERE NO POINT IN POURIN' MONEY INTO ANYTHING. WE DONE. IT OVER. IT ONLY A MATTER OF TIME UNTIL YOU PICK UP WHAT'S LEFT OF THE PAPER AN' READ: "LIBRARY OF CONGRESS SELLS DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE TO MALAYSIA."
Ah no worries, we'll just scrap it all and start over, you can't kill the American spirit.

'Why it’s winning over women
An interesting story from last : An e-mail friend who lives in an affluent subuhington, a staunch Republican, was watching one of the R he told me she said.“People will feelfe if he is in chargee Oct. 3. He has been leading in most conducted since.
His national lead was matched as swing state polls came in. In the realclearpolitics.com average of recentad, even or within 2 points in states with 301 electoral votes, 31 more than the 270-vote majority.
Fascinatingly, it appears that he’s made greater gains among women than men. The USA Today/ 48 to 48 percent. Pew has women at 47 to 47.omen by 56 to 43 percent. Men favored Obama by only 1 point.
All the evidence suggests that the first debate made the difference.“In every poll we’ve seen a major surge in favorability for Romney,”
Democratic pollster Celint my e-mail friend’s wife said last winter.'

Oh, by the way...

A Congressional Budget Office (CBO) report says that under the Affordable Care Act, a.k.a. "Obamacare", 30 million non-elderly Americans will remain without health insurance in 2022.

Casey's opponent, Tom Smith, plays this ultra conservative right winger tea party guy. He's been a Republican for about a year.
One year.
Prior to that, he's been a Democrat.
Sounds like another Romney. A liberal pretending to be a conservative to dupe the voters.
lots of folks in PA register in the other party if their county is controlled by the other party so that they have a voice in local primary elections, which usually determine the eventual winner.....

Tom Smith appears in his own ads....

Casey has been in hiding for six years, unable to appear in public...if Casey ever debated, it would quickly become apparent that he is an imbecile....

Nice looking ride IMO and I can see 40,000 people in North America wanting to own one. As I've mentioned previously, some folks are paying upwards of $30,000 for golf carts and custom all terrain vehicles www.villagesgolfcartman.com/

It's said that there are over 50,000 golf carts at The Villages alone. These brokeazz right wingers think everyone else is broke like them.

The program that provided rebates for home owners & companies to weatherize, install panels, or install geothermal HVAC systems.

There are thousands of family owned water well drilling businesses in he US. These families invested in drill rigs, costing over $500K & elated equipment. Their main source of work in home building.

When housing collapsed, many would have gone out of business.

But the rebate for geothermal HVAC created a lot of work. Instead of drilling water wells, they were drilling holes for ground loops.

It saved hundreds if not thousands of water well driller's businesses & saved thousands of jobs.

It also created work for HVAC unit manufacturers & installers.

It reduced the amount of heating oil needed & eliminated home emissions.

And it will save these that installed these systems thousands of dollars.

People, schools, government buildings & churches.

This is a successful program that had a positive effect on thousands of families & this country.

Mitt Romney called this waste of money.

As for the Volt, I don't own one (yet) but the couple people I know that have them think they are great.

TEA PARTY says NO! to new taxes

OBAMA’S SECRET SECOND-TERM AGENDA, revealed.“At every turn in his presidency, Obama believes he understands Republicans and can bully them into submission. And at every turn he has underestimated Republican resolve. If Obama wins reelection he will no doubt try to govern in his second term the exact same way he tried to govern in his first. And he will get the exact same results. In other words, if Obama wins reelection, we are definitely going over the fiscal cliff.”

Oh, by the way...

According to a Congressional Research Service report, which focused solely on federal spending for FEDERAL WELFARE programs, spending on FEDERAL WELFARE programs increased $563.413 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $745.84 billion in fiscal year 2011 — a 32 percent increase.

When state spending on FEDERAL WELFARE programs — specifically Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program — was thrown into the mix, the amount spent on FEDERAL WELFARE increased 28 percent, from $798.813 billion in fiscal year 2008 to $1.028.54 trillion in fiscal year 2011.

I get it,. You think Obama created this recession. How dumb are you?
I KNOW Obama is responsible for last four years and all that has happened. Like Bush before him, you are responsible for your term (s) as president and your administration.

I am just smart enough to know that the one to hold responsible for the state of the economy is the one in charge of it!

<quoted text>The Volt line in Hammtramck will be converted to produce the Cadillac ELR which is expected to debut in late 2013. The ELR concept car is a wicked looking two seat roadster, yet the mechanics are basically the same as the Volt. The Cadillac name and higher price tag is expected to draw a different sort of buyer.
what sort of buyer do you think the Cadillac name appeals to nowadays???...

certainly not the younger, educated upscale buyer.....who would not be caught dead in a Cadillac....except for a hearse....

More green energy scams

HOW ABOUT $300 MILLION IN PUBLIC FUNDING FOR CLEAN ENERGY FIRM WORKERS TO SIT AND PLAY CARDS? That’s what is happening at LG Chem, another of those electric car battery makers that got major federal funding, according to a local Michigan television news operation. Only problem is there’s almost no demand for what LG Chem makes.

No, it's what you get from failed Bush policies. So far Obama has stopped the bleeding, 8 years to break, 8 years to fix. That's just the way it goes.
