Barack Obama, our next President

Full story: Hampton Roads Daily Press

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ...

Oh Well
Time Magazine has pronounced Marco aka Mark Rubio the GOP savior__they also loved Jindal and of course Rand Paul. This love affair too will pass right after Marco shows his stuff as head rebutter to Obama's state of the union address.
Drone hearings are beginning presently for those that like their info first hand.
They were calling for 4 to 10, they just upped it to 10 - 16 inches of snow. Guess I know what I will be doing on Saturday morning, Homer clears his driveway the old fashioned way, with a shovel. Anybody have the number for FEMA?

<quoted text>Do you ready believe that reading history books can solve today's problem? Had President Obama went into office with a black agenda, people like you would've been his biggest obsticle in opposition with everything he would try & accomplish, not to mention the fact that he would've f cked it up for any furore black person to run for office. There's a such thing as being educated but stupid. You fit both criteria to the T! Your hate for the blackman in charge Darkens your vision like tented windows. You see a shadow over the President in whatever he does. You would talk shyt if he had a black agenda, yet you blame him for not having 1. Can't win for losing in your eyes. Whats crazy is, you don't even notice that you often talk in circles!

"Taylor has crunched the numbers and determined that these elements mean the true cost of wind power is more like double the advertised numbers.
He explains that he started with 8.2 cents per kWh, reflecting total installation costs of $2,000 per kw of capacity. Then backed out an assumed 30-year lifespan for the turbines (optimistic), which increases the cost to 9.3 cents per kwh. Then after backing out the effect of subsidies allowing accelerated depreciation for wind investments you get 10.1 cents. Next, add the costs of keeping gas-fired plants available, but running at reduced capacity, to balance the variable performance of wind 1.7 cents. Extra fuel for those plants adds another 0.6 cents. Finally, tack on 2.7 cents for new transmission line investments needed to get new wind power to market. The whole shebang adds up to 15 cents per kwh.
Ouch.
As Taylor figures it, natural gas would need to cost upwards of $20 per mmBTU before gas-fired power would cost as much as wind."
WTF is that? NG is cheap presently because it's become plentiful, that doesn't mean that the future won't include wind, solar and wave technology. And one more time the costs for electricity varies by region of the nation and then region of the globe. It ain't all about yours or Flack's self centered azzes pal, there are people in faraway places that can no longer afford electricity generated by fossil fuels__and you don't have to look very far.

Typical of your ignorance.
Under Obama, America is producing far more oil and natural gas than ever imagined by 'oilman' Bush.
More production than in the past 15 years, in fact.
Bush and Co. were into procuring oil by invasion.
How'd that work?? They didn't get any for a Trillion Dollar war!!
Did I mention that Bush was a failure in the oil business??

Oil production on federal land is down. Thank advances in fraking technology for the increase in oil production, not obama. Profits are driving technological advancements in oil production.

Steyn on Europe's weakness

John Keegan, the great military historian, said that a nation without a military is in a sense no longer a nation. One of the few remaining serious second-tier powers is now joining their ranks: Under the "Conservative" premiership of David Cameron, a nation that within living memory governed a fifth of the earth's surface and a quarter of its population and provided what global order there was for much of the rest will have a military incapable of independent force projection. Were the Argies to seize the Falklands today, Her Majesty's Government would have to content itself with going to the U.N. and getting a strong resolution. Were the toppling of Saddam to be attempted today, Britain would be incapable of reprising the role it played eight years ago of holding down the lower third of Iraq all but singlehanded while the Yanks pressed on to Baghdad.

But beyond that, in a more general sense, nations that abandon their militaries tend also to abandon their national interests: Increasingly, instead of policies, they have attitudes. "Global warming" "saving" the planet is the perfect preoccupation for the ever-more-refined sensibilities of the post-national nation.

While Europe slept in & slept around, new powers emerged. China and India, on course to be the world's top 2 economies within a couple of decades, both act as more or less conventional nation-states. So too do Iran, Saudi Arabia, Turkey and many lesser players. We live on a planet in which the wealthiest societies in history, from Norway to New Zealand, are incapable of defending their own borders while basket cases like North Korea and Pakistan have gone nuclear, and Sudan and Somalia are anxious to follow.

Whatever supple lies it may tell itself, a rich nation that cannot bother keeping up an army is retreating not only from imperialism & conquest but also from greatness. Continentals enjoy more paid leisure time than anybody else, yet they produce less and less great art, music, literature. A land of universal welfare invariably universalizes mediocrity.

Whether Greece defaults or gets bailed out one mo' time doesn't really matter: It's insolvent & there isn't enough money in Germany to obscure that fact indefinitely. The longer "political reality" tries to dodge real reality, the bloodier the eventual reacquaintance will be. Europeans are going to have to relearn impulses 3 generations of Continentals have learned to regard as hopelessly vulgar. Can they do that? A land of 30-year-old students and 50-year-old retirees has so thoroughly diverted the great stream of life that it barely comprehends what's at stake. "Europe" as a geopolitical rather than geographical concept has been for half a century the most conventional of conventional wisdom. Those, like Britain's Euroskeptics, who dissented from it were derided as "swivel-eyed" "loony tunes." The loons were right, and the smart set the political class, the universities, the BBC, Le Monde were wrong. "Europe" was a blueprint for sclerosis and decline, and then a sudden, devastating fall. As the "loony tunes" could have told them, it ends with, "That's all, folks."
