Barack Obama, our next President

Who does the oil belong to?
That's a whole 'nother topic.

Alaska makes oil companies companies pay Alaskans for the resources they took out of the ground. It's called royalty payments.

Yet the oil companies still made tremendous profits!!

Palin was all for it, too! So it should be part of the TP plank!!

The oil and ng belongs to all Americans, not oil companies.

They should be allowed to drill for it and sell it, but just as in Alaska, we the people should get a share of the money.

But the Rclowns don't even want to take away big oil's tax breaks and subsidies, much less make them pay royalties to Americans.

That reminds me of a Gahan Wilson cartoon I saw googling something else. It showed wolves howling at a moon and pondering the futility of their raucous actions. I suspected Wilson intended irony in the tone.

Maybe I credited him too much wit?

BTW, I'm no fan of any video games.

But our Military uses them to train people with.

I'd be happy to see them banned.

But video games don't shoot people.

Guns shoot people.

Like the punk in TX, who killed the Navy Seal just to steal his truck.

Or the redneck who killed the school bus dfriver and took a child hostage.

Crazy people and guns are a deadly combination.

And we've too many of both in this nation.

....Overall, if you believe fiscal conservatism is right and is best for everyone and we still arenít winning, then I believe there are only two possibilities: People are too dumb to get it or weíre too dumb to say it in a way that is comprehensible. Since I believe weíre right and that people arenít inherently stupid, I must opt for the latter....

Since you have all the answers, answer this question:

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

All you have to do is identify a simple source of money to answer that question.

The Post Office is required by the Constitution. DUH

Obamacare was found to be Constitutional by the Conservative Supreme Court.

What the f*ck is the GD difference if Exxon pays $1 billion in taxes & gets a check for $200 million or if they have $800 million tax bill because they got a 200 million tax break.
Joe Flacco won a Corvette for being Super Bowl MVP. If he accepts and keeps the car he will owe about $27k in taxes. If he accepts the car and donates the car to charity, he will still owe $6K in taxes. The only way to escape the IRS is to turn down the gift.

Once again, for the really, really slow (stupid) people in the class, if you can't remember this please write it down.

The Treasury isn't a source of money. It is a repository for money collected from a source of money.
To say "debt of the treasury" you are referencing either money that has already been spent and doesn't exist anymore, or additional debt to be incurred by accepting money from some source of money.
To answer the question, you actually have to identify a source of money.

Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Yes, drones existed then. A variety of guided drones were used in Vietnam, to include some with video cameras for guidance.

And that's why Ayers was bombing all those government targets while Nixon was president.
Where the fuck did you ever get the idea that Ayers was a friend of Nixon?

That's a good point, do we occupy the Persian Gulf to support the sugar industry?
