Oops! Almost forgot. Galt likes Tiger; he's into black men.
Meanwhile, a little trouble here on the Treasure Coast this weekend:
TREASURE COAST - Military jets have now diverted a total of three small planes that stumbled too close above President Barack Obama's Treasure Coast golf outings.
The latest wayward aircraft ended up in restricted airspace near the Floridian at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday. The Cessna plane left the no-fly zone, landed at Okeechobee Airport and was met by local authorities, said U.S. Army Lt. Col. Mike Humphreys.
F-16s intercepted the first plane, registered with a business at the Plant City Airport, at 11:55 a.m. Saturday and it landed at Witham Field. The Secret Service questioned the pilot, but agency spokesman Brian Leary said "the restricted air space violation does not appear to be of protective interests at this time."
A Coast Guard helicopter and military jets intercepted the second aircraft at 5:09 p.m. But that plane, a two-passenger Lancair 320, left the restricted area and carried on to its destination, Humphreys said. The aircraft was flying from Boca Raton to DeLand, the FAA reported.
The FAA's investigation of all three is ongoing.

Obama should stay in Washington and stop interfering in the lives of American citizens.

The pilots are lucky that Obama didn't order their summary execution by drone for disturbing his golf game.

All Hail, Lord Obama!

Social Security’s Sham Guarantee

How many times during the recent debate over Social Security reform have you heard someone refer to Social Security’s “guaranteed benefit”? The AARP says “Social Security is the guaranteed part of your retirement plan.” Nancy Pelosi, the Democratic leader in the House, touts the system’s “guaranteed retirement benefit.” The liberal activist group ProtectYourCheck.org , headed by former Clinton chief of staff Harold Ickes, is running ads calling Social Security “a guarantee you earned.”

But Social Security benefits are not guaranteed.

They are not guaranteed legally because workers have no contractual or property rights to any benefits whatsoever. In two landmark cases, Flemming v. Nestor and Helvering v. Davis, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Social Security taxes are not contributions or savings, but simply taxes, and that Social Security benefits are simply a government spending program, no different than, say, farm price supports. Congress and the president may change, reduce, or even eliminate benefits at any time.

Obama has four years left and what appears to be a full plate on his hands just trying to restore the nation to Clinton era standards.
I don't think any of our nationally elected were prepared for Sandy Hook or considered that Obama would take on immigration reform__surprise surprise.
The economy is improving by leaps and bounds, his health care initiative is beginning to show some positive results and he's kept us out of new military conflicts. He's like a brown Ike Eisenhower.
What's not to like?

Called the Close Big Oil Tax Loopholes Act, the bill sought to repeal about $21 billion worth of tax breaks to oil companies over 10 years with the stipulation that all revenues generated would be used to reduce the federal budget deficit or the public debt. The five companies targeted were: Exxon Mobil, Chevron, Shell, ConocoPhillips and BP.

The Senate voted 52-48 in favor of moving the bill forward, meaning it failed to get the 60 votes needed to bring the measure up for debate. Votes largely broke along party lines, with all but two Republicans and three Democrats voting against it.

----------

Now, are you stupid enough to believe they would write a bill to eliminate subsidies that don't exist??

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Apparently!!

BTW, wingnut, I've listed 3 specific subsidies repeatedly.

you're copying Dweeb's ignorance and pretending you don't see things.

Again, SPECIFICALLY;

1./ Foreign tax credit ($15.3 billion)

2./ Credit for production of non-conventional fuels ($14.1 billion)

3./ Oil and Gas exploration and development expensing ($7.1 billion)

Your stupid act is tiresome, but genuine. Your stupidity is legendary, which is why you spend your life on this thread.

Going to electric cars is good for this country. The subsidies will help this product grow its market share & thereby attract more private investment & advancements. Electric car makers are not recording record profits & the industry needs some help to develop faster.
The more we utilize electric cars, the less we depend on foreign oil, the less we need to give a crap about the Middle East, the less money we export every year and the fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Still unable to identify any subsidy for the oil industry not available to other industries.

Keystone pipeline would reduce reliance on Middle East oil. So would more offshore drilling.

""According to the OECD, subsidies supporting fossil fuels, particularly coal and oil, represent greater threats to the environment than subsidies to renewable energy. Subsidies to nuclear power contribute to unique environmental and safety issues, related mostly to the risk of high-level environmental damage, although nuclear power contributes positively to the environment in the areas of air pollution and climate change. Subsidies to renewable energy are generally considered more environmentally beneficial, although the full range of environmental effects should be taken into account.""
"Foreign tax credit" sounds like something available to all industries, as well as individuals on their tax returns.

"Credit for production of non-conventional fuels" sounds like green energy program.

McCain and Graham prepare to quit fighting Hagel and move on to their next hissy fit

The McCain-Graham relationship on this one is, as Politico paints it, its own little Greek tragedy in the making: McCain was reportedly planning to vote for Hagel until Graham prevailed on him to join the filibuster.


By reversing himself, McCain effectively sacrificed his own credibility to buy Graham more time to continue his campaign against Hagel—an issue that plays to Graham’s advantage as he prepares to run for reelection in 2014.
“This is just a bone thrown to Lindsey Graham, who keeps painting himself into corners and then pleading with friends to crawl in there with him in a vain attempt to save a little face,” one Republican insider told POLITICO.
