Tell us about those subsidies to oil companies. You still haven't done that. Or, is that just another of the propaganda lies you get indoctrinated with at your indoctrination sessions?
Tell us about those oil subsidies.
A fossil fuel subsidy is any government action that lowers the cost of fossil fuel energy production, raises the price received by energy producers or lowers the price paid by energy consumers. There are a lot of activities under this simple definition—tax breaks and giveaways, but also loans at favorable rates, price controls, purchase requirements and a whole lot of other things.

n the United States, credible estimates of annual fossil fuel subsidies range from $10 billion to $52 billion annually, while even efforts to remove small portions of those subsidies have been defeated in Congress, as shown in the graphic below.

President Obama has proposed cutting fossil fuel subsidies every year he’s been in office. The projections for savings have varied slightly each year but always hover around $4 billion annually. Congress has never even proposed voting on all of them.

anything else that your ignorance extends to that you need explained? always happy to do it for you.

The fact that you & DB writer can overlook all the negatives in the constitution speaks volumes of the kind of POS the both of you are. I damn sure don't trust any of the racist you named & none of the rest of the people you named had any direct bearing on America besides President Obama & he did nothing to warrant distrust from me. You people are cowards! Can't sleep at night without an AR-15 under the pillow! A bunch of fear mongering blind assholes that looks into the past to gain insight on the future.

You forgot to put content in you rpost. I'll help you correct your mistake. Here's the post again:
Monday morning. I guess it's time for you to do your usual clumsy dance and run away from answering these questions.
We still haven't gotten an answer to these questions:
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American embassy security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-time video feed?
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
And, a new question:
Joe Biden says the government can infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to infringe on the right of the people to keep and bear arms?
And, another question:
Eric Holder says the government can determine who in the United States is allowed to have a firearm. Where is the text in the Constitution that gives the government the authority to decide who in the United States is allowed to own a firearm?
The questions that Democrats can't, or won't answer just keeps growing.
The answer to the first two questions may describe treason.
If the third question isn't answered, the government collapses and the existence of the United States comes to an end.
The answer to the last two questions may describe the establishment of an unconstitutional dictatorship.
These questions will ultimately be answered. Hopefully, it will be through dialogue.
How about you do your part to save the country and answer these questions....
Here's an analogy I've used that you may have missed:
Three drunks are sitting in a bar, Galt, waxturd and DBWriter. Waxturd says to Galt, "I don't have any friends so I'm going to buy drinks all night for everyone in the bar and maybe someone will like me. Will you pay for it?". Galt says, "Sure I will.". When the tab comes DBWriter, who has been listening to all this says, "I wonder where waxturd is going to get the money to pay for all those drinks?".

Congress authorized the war against al Qaeda and its allies. While many details of the drone strikes remain secret, it can hardly be argued that Congress isn’t aware of the program’s existence or the administration’s -general legal justification for it; Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out much the same case for the program last March in a speech at Northwestern University. Nor is it possible for the administration to carry out the program without congressional authorizations, either by the intelligence or the armed services committees. And as the confirmation hearings of CIA director nominee John Brennan demonstrate, Congress has always had the ability to dig deeper if it chooses to use its oversight powers. What the critics don’t want to admit is that poll after poll indicates that the American public supports the drone program, and members of Congress, within reason, will reflect that support.

not to worry. they don't get to interpret the Constitution. only the Court does.

whatever they have to say about following the document to the letter is pure BS. the Court has already blown up the whole gun debate by declaring there are 'dangerous and unusual' weapons in the cause of defending handguns.

and that's not the only thing they don't want to acknowledge.

Trying to force a square peg into a circle huh! Show me where Obama said he doesn't support your right to bear arms. You can't because he's never said it! So if he never said it how can you align him with legendary dictators. Like I said you live in a world of hypotheticals. Making up shyt to ease your minds anxieties. You people are crazy!

we're always hearing about how the black folks are getting screwed by Obama, and now we know why according to those black folks.

Perhaps President Obama isn't as much of a economically empowering friend to minority Americans as we think he is? Colorlines editor Imara Jones writes that the POTUS is complicit in some of the Republicans' financially tough policies.

There was no 7 hour battle but two separate attacks. Obama was in a meeting with Panetta & the head of the joint chiefs an hour & 20 minutes after the first attack started. Obama gets his money from the treasury department. So you say the NRA will push for private ownership of armed drones.

No wonder you need to have subsidies to survive. You're too stupid to make it on your own.

Do you mean banks were not investing in areas that had a history of defaulting on loans? You do understand the definition of the word "history", don't you?
So, please tell us why you make the association between racial discrimination and the history of bad lonas in the areas you claim were being racially discriminated against.
In short, why did the areas banks didn't want to invest in have a history of bad loans? What was the relationship to race?
... I'll wait for your answer on this one.
The court called it racist. Why are you defending racism?? Oh that's right, you're a Tea Party racist POS.

I understand your position. You favored the voter photo ID. It wasn't that the vast majority of those who didn't have a photo ID were poor people & disproportionally black, was it? But you, being a racist f*ck, didn't care & you f*cked people out of their vote. It must because you believe in the Constitution...as long as it suits your racist agenda yet when it comes to black people buying homes & voting, you crumble it up & piss on it.
