Like your other guesses, this one, too, is off the mark.
Expecting you to make an educated guess would also end in failure.

Especially since 'educated' is, in your case, an unattainable goal.
You catch a glimpse from me now and then, but you can't seem to exceed your grasp...

Jealous much?

A parting thought:

What kind of a screwed up backward society do we live in when violent sex predators and rapists live among us, while other people sit in prisons for not PAYING? child support?

Erm,
If one can afford to 'knock me up,' one can afford to pay half the cost of RAISING one's offspring.

wouldn't it be more productive to demand that criminals be dealt with accordingly? Then you wouldn't need a list.

Sure. Instead of saying "Please don't rape," let's say "Rape and die."

Anyone with your juvenile grammar and spelling shouldn't be calling anyone an idiot.
Not one American life was lost in Clinton's Serbian intervention and he prevented Al Qaeda from gaining a foothold in the Balkans. Bush on the other hand sent over 4000 of our uniformed personnel to their deaths and gave Al Qaeda yet another theater in which to operate.

'Lonesome Dove' is a morality play, from which you obviously failed to learn.

My post had nothing to do with the Scopes Trial - thou art overmuch concerned with your descent from the ape.

Nonsensical?

Hardly.

Got your attention, Dood.

Word to the wise on 'mouth odor':

BAKING SODA.

It's cheap, plentiful, and even effective.

In fact Clinton fought two wars . One in Iraq and one in Serbia but the liberal media is ot eager to remember it .
You have a lower brain function than I . I know more than you ever will is why it's amusing to "discuss" things with simpletons

Money is power, and in the governmental structure created by the US Constitution, Congress—not the president—controls the money.

Article 1, Section 8

The very first power given to Congress by the Constitution is the power to tax. Money is power, and in the governmental structure created by the Constitution, Congress—not the president—controls the money. Congress also has the power to levy tariffs (taxes on imported goods) but it's not allowed to charge more for imports into one state than into another. The Framers of the Constitution probably put the tax power first on the list of Congress's enumerated powers because they were acutely aware that one of the biggest problems of the old Articles of Confederation was that its version of Congress did not have the power to tax, and thus didn't have the power to do much of anything at all.

When did Obama try this?
When he spent 2 years drafting HIS Health Care Plan and cut the Republicans and their input totally out of the process?
When he stated The Republicans can come along but they have to ride in the back of the bus?
When he spent his whole presidency villianizing Republicans?
When he's continued to blame Republicans, STILL blaming President Bush for his repeated and continued failures?
When his minions, from The Labor Unions to his Eric Holder have done nothing but demonized Republicans?
He hasn't tried jack shyte regarding reaching across the isle of partisanship to work with Republicans.
He's so scared sightless of Rush Limbaugh ...
That's why there's a Topix thread that bears the title:
"Barack Obama to GOP Dump Rush Limbaugh".
He's just a little man who fears and perceive all who oppose him as his enemy to be silenced.
HA! He's just a scared sissy a$$.
Afraid of a Republican talk show host.
He needs some saddle shoes to go with his Mom jeans, the big baby!
<quoted text>
Yeah moron, when the other side is only interested in obstructing the process then they get cut out of it. The Republicans did the same thing to the Democrats when they were in power. The reason it's called "Politics" is "F*ck you" was already taken.
Obama never said they had to ride in the "back of the bus" liar, here's the actual statement;
"Finally we got this car up on level ground. And, yes, it's a little beat up. It needs to go to the body shop. It's got some dents; it needs a tune-up. But it's pointing in the right direction. And now we've got the Republicans tapping us on the shoulder, saying, we want the keys back.
You can't have the keys back. You don't know how to drive. You can ride with us if you want, but you got to sit in the backseat. We're going to put middle-class America in the front seat. We're looking out for them. "
Sure imbecile he's really been a failure, GDP went from the crapper to positive growth, the Dow went from around 6500 to 13,000, We've had private sector job growth and the housing market is on the rebound.
He has reached across to the GOP and gotten his hand bit every time.
Afraid of Rush Limbaugh? Who would be afraid of that morbidly obese lying drug addict? The only ones that put any credence in anything he says are ignorant fools like you. He makes a hell of a lot of money pandering to idiots like you.
The GOP has been demonizing Obama since he was elected and he's managed to put the economy on the right track in spite of the roadblocks the extreme right has put in his path.

-Research Projects leading no where or to no avail, such as
"How to Lower Carbon Emissions from Cows" !... Just for starters. So many to name. And most if not all have already been.

Hey stupid! Solyndra was part of a program started under the Bush administration.
