The Republicans accumulated an additional 3.5 trillion dollars of debt between the time Bush took office and January, 2007, when the Democrats took control of all the purse strings of government.

Please give us the figures of how much the Democrats increased the debt and deficit since they took control of all spending and borrowing.
Did you say the Democrats doubled the debt?
Did you say the Democrats increased the deficit a thousand goddam percent?

It's unConstitutional.

Why are you now running away from th ewords of the Constitution that you claim anyone can read and understand??

It's obvious you don't understand Section IV

""Section 3.

New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.""

----------

So now we have the fake Constitutionalis..t running away from the Constitution because it disagrees with his stupidity!!

Read this carefully, Dweeb. It's the US Constitution;

"but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; "

----------

Now you're stupidity has come full circle. From claiming you support sand defend the Constitution, to supporting a clearly unConstitutional Act.

You really blew it this time, Dweeb!!

The Virginia state legislature was comprised of the legislators that remained loyal to the federal republic.
The "other state" did not exist until it was authorized by the federal republic. The legislators that remained loyal to the federal republic became the legislature of the state of Virginia. The legislators that rebelled against the federal republic and became a functioning element of another country did not comprise the legislature of the state of Virginia as recognized by the federal republic the rebelled against and declared their standing as not being part of that federal republic.
Thus, those legislators that did not rebel had the authority to represent the state of Virginia in the federal republic, and had the authority to petition to split the state of Virginia into two separate states.

I note you walked away from your stupidity concerning geothermal systems.

Funny how you called yourself a geologist, yet had no idea that heat transfer through earth has been used for centuries!!

what was with the water thing?? Please explain why you think you need water to dissipate heat, when the earth works quite well.

I love it when you display your true ignorance, Dweeb!!

I will repeat this answer to your stupidity often!!

Just to remind everyone what a dumbass you are!!

Do you think it's removed by the water flowing through the goddam aquifer?
If the heat isn't removed from below the building where you put it, do you think that heat will just be transferred right back into the building.

Homer has the US Constitution on his side.
You??
You've got ignorance and excuses.
""Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1 reads as follows: New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress."
WVA is clearly in violation of Article IV, Section 3, Clause 1.
Therefore, WVA is not a state, per the rules laid down by the founders.
Funny how you nitwits hate the Constitution when it disagrees with your ignorance.
West Virginia was clearly the only part of the legislature of Virginia that could be considered as representation for the state of Virginia in the federal republic.
In case you are ignorant of history, the other members of the legislature of Virginia became a functioning element of another country. According to the Constitution, such joining with a foreign country is prohibited. Therefore, the legislators that joined that other country could not have been part of the legislature that didn't join that other country. The part of the legislature that remained part of the federal republic became the legislature of the state of Virginia and representation in the federal republic.
Therefore, they had the constitutional right to petition to split the state which they were the sole representation of in the federal republic. And, Congress had the right to grant that wish.
Thus, the state of West Virginia was born in accordance with the Constitution.

You are not only the most ignorant person here, you are the biggest liar.
The battle was over 7 hours long. The only reference you mentioned was some meeting at 11:00. The real-time video was being watched in the White House. Where was Obama while the White House watched the real-time video of Al Qaeda killing Americans?
The question remains unanswered.
How about you answer the question. All you have to do is give the location of Obama during the time the White House was watching live Al Qaeda kill Americans.
Where was Obama during the 7-hour battle between Al Qaeda and the stripped-down American security detatchment in Benghazi while the White House watched Al Qaeda kill them on the real-time video feed?
Let's work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language.
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
To answer the question, you have to state "where".
There is nothing in the question about "who" receives the money. Because the verb "pay" is used in the infinitive, you assume whomever receives the money will use it to, as the question specifically identifies, "pay for Obama's government". Who pays is inconsequential. Who handles the money is inconsequential.
The only significant part of the question is "where will the money come from".
To give an idiotic answer like "the Treasury Department" proves your ignorance. You have to identify a source of money, not the repository of the money collected from the source of money.
The Treasury Department is not a source of money, idiot.
So, the question remains unanswered:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
It's a simple question. All that is required to answer it is to identify a simple source of money that will be collected from to pay for Obama's government.
You idiots do have a goddam plan, don't you? Please don't tell us you clowns don't even have a plan.

Pentagon Time Line.
Read it.
at 11:00 PM Benghai time, an hour & 20 minutes after the attack began, Obama was in a meeting at the White House with Panetta & the head of the Joint Chiefs.
You know this because , despite you numerous lies, you read that time line I posted earlier. The one you now claim never to have seen.
Yet you still are running in circles waving your arms & screaming "Where was Obama" "where was Obama". We;ll Dickbreath, if you bothered to even read some of your own GD posts, you admitted where he was. In that meeting.
That same time line that you refuse to acknowledge, said there were two attacks.
But hey, don't let facts get in the way of your immense stupidity. Dumbass.
Read it and quit asking for it over and over, you idiot!!

As with most all of what you post.
Try and keep up. A person making $9 per hour, 40 hours per week, earns $18,720, before any taxes.
Assuming this is the poor Rmoney family, and Ann stays home with the kids, which you nitwits all thought was a wonderful thing, it means the Rmoneys would pay no Federal Income Taxes. DUH
That is the tax code as established by Republiclowns!!
But to say the poor Rmoneys pay NO taxes is idiotic, but expected.

This could result in a very severe problem. Mass ignorance always causes catastrophies.
Sen. Obama, who has taught courses in constitutional law at the University of Chicago, has regularly referred to himself as "a constitutional law professor," most famously at a March 30, 2007, fundraiser when he said, "I was a constitutional law professor, which means unlike the current president I actually respect the Constitution."

UC Law School statement: The Law School has received many media requests about Barack Obama, especially about his status as "Senior Lecturer." From 1992 until his election to the U.S. Senate in 2004, Barack Obama served as a professor in the Law School. He was a Lecturer from 1992 to 1996. He was a Senior Lecturer from 1996 to 2004, during which time he taught three courses per year. Senior Lecturers are considered to be members of the Law School faculty and are regarded as professors, although not full-time or tenure-track. The title of Senior Lecturer is distinct from the title of Lecturer, which signifies adjunct status. Like Obama, each of the Law School’s Senior Lecturers have high-demand careers in politics or public service, which prevent full-time teaching. Several times during his 12 years as a professor in the Law School, Obama was invited to join the faculty in a full-time tenure-track position, but he declined.

You keep doubling down on your stupidity!!

I like that!!

"The United States government rejected secession as illegal. Following the Confederate attack at Fort Sumter, the Union used military action to defeat the Confederacy. No foreign nation officially recognized the Confederacy as an independent country, but several did grant belligerent status."

Not only did the USA consider the Confederacy illegal, but no foreign nation ever recognized the Cpnfederacy as a legal entity.

The Confederacy was NEVER another country, it was merely a breakaway region that the Union had to bring back into the USA, when it illegally seceded. DUH

You lose again, Dweeb!!

You can't even make up a convincing story!!

Everyone who begins as a trainee gets a minimum wage. If someone is still relying on minimum wage after being in the workforce for a short period of time, that's all they are worth - if that.
Why should employers be forced to pay more for the same worthless employee?
This is just another Marxist idea from the Democrats to spread the wealth around to people who do nothing to earn it.
how about we get rid of the minimum wage entirely? That would motivate people to become worth something in the economy.
A person is paid according to their worth. If you want to be paid more, make the choices that will increase your worth.
Alternatively, you can choose to be poor. The choice is yours. The money is out there for you if you just make the choices to earn it.
This is the Socialist dialogue in America today: "I am uneducated, unmotivated and a mindless consumer. I don't produce anything but sewer effluents, carbon monoxide and parent-less children. The Boy Messiah says that he'll give me a free cellphone and high wages if I get off my fat ass to pick up the phone and the paycheck. He's my man!"
