Barack Obama, our next President

Still denying oil subsidies exist?
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.
Tell us about those oil subsidies that don't exist.

Reach into that bag of lies the Demcorats fill every day and tell us about those oild subsidies that don't exist.

A sampling of rightwingers er Nascar fans comments on nascar.com regarding Danica winning the pole -

'That's the wrong pole she should be working. Get her off the track. Go back to you know- taking off your clothes.'

'She'll crash in the twins on Thur, Back of the pack on Sun'

'She's on the pole yey. Now if she doesn't finish in the top 10 then stop putting the cameras in her face so she can blame the other drivers for her inabilaty to drive a nascar.'

'You actually want us to believe that Johnson,Gordon, Earnhart or Kahne didn't have enough car to beat "Ms. Wonderful". How much "palm greasing" has been going on over the past 3 months. Talk about a kick in the groin. I host a Daytona party every year for family, friends and fellow racers.We do a driver "blind draw" for a buck and the person with the winning drivers name gets $42.00 and the last place person gets their buck back as a consolation prize. I guess for this year I will add the " On what lap will she cause the BIG ONE". She will take out some great cars and the race will become a drag having to listen to her whining the rest of the race about how "They were rubbing all over me".'

'I think it is a set up. I don't expect her to be any better than20th by the end of the first lap.'

Subsidies to renewable energy are generally considered more environmentally beneficial, although the full range of environmental effects should be taken into account.""
You're going to have to come up with something better than that bullshit party line propaganda.

Foreign tax credit is a tax credit given to ANY AND EVERY company doing business in another country for the taxes they pay to those governments where they do business.

No oil subsidy there.

Credit for production of non-conventional fuels

what is a "non-conventional fuel"
Would that be ethanol? Credit for producing a product to directly compete with themselves?

Oil and Gas exploration and development expensing

That's called expenses necessary to conduct business, you goddam idiot. Every industry can deduct those expenses.

Alcohol Credit for Fuel Excise Tax

So, they get credit for a tax they already paid. Do you listen to yourself?

Renewable Electricity Production Credit

(see above competing with themselves)

Corn-Based Ethanol

(see above competing with themselves)

Yo ustill haven't told us anything about any subsidy paid to the oil industry that isn't the same for any other industry.

Where did the money come from to pay for Bush's Government.

You haven't answered that yet.

If you do, you'd see why we're in such debt.

But then, youre as ignorant about this as you are about geothermal HVAC.

Firstly, you can't show something that doesn't exist. There is no such thing as the oil subsidies. It's all part of the Democrat system of lies.
Secondly, we left off with Benghazi when Obama gave the orders for all support for the Americans in Benghazi to disregard their default orders, while he watched Al Qaeda kill Americans on the real-time video.
I actually knew Obama watched Al Qaeda kill the Americans after the jpresidential order (actually from Vallerie Jarrett) for all prepositioned military response to stand down and let Al Qaeda continue their attempt to kidnap Stevens, which Stevens was inadvertently killed in the attempt. I wanted some Democrat here to come out and say it.
Which you did.
So, now that you've said Obama ordered everyone to sit still while he watched Al Qaeda kill the Americans on the real-time video...
Why did Obama lie for two weeks covering up the Al Qaeda attack on the United States?
Just how the f**k did you get from my post to geothermal heating?
Yet you're obviously too stupid to comprehend any of it!!
Actually, the correct word to use for you is ignorant. You are intelligent enough to understand thermodynamics. You just never even studied it.
Now, back to the original topic of geothermal cooling.....
... dufus.
And, another question you never answered:
Where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?
If that question isn't answered, the government collapses.
How about you prevent the government from collapsing and tell us where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
After you tell us why Obama ordered everyone sit and watch Al Qaeda kill Americans, then lied about it for two weeks.

It appears you are still confused or in denial, let's try this:
Perseveration
The involuntary and pathologic persistence of the same verbal response or motor activity regardless of the stimulus or its duration. The condition occurs primarily in patients with brain damage or organic mental disorders, although it may also appear in schizophrenia as an association disturbance. It is caused by a neurologic deficit.

Your additional paranoia as exemplified by your fantasy civil war complicates the diagnosis, but this is the best I can do for now.

Don’t Blink, or You’ll Miss Another Bailout

February 18, 2013

Source: NY Times

That the New York Fed would shower favors on a big financial institution may not surprise. It has long shielded large banks from assertive regulation and increased capital requirements.

Still, last week’s details of the undisclosed settlement between the New York Fed and Bank of America are remarkable. Not only do the filings show the New York Fed helping to thwart another institution’s fraud case against the bank, they also reveal that the New York Fed agreed to give away what may be billions of dollars in potential legal claims.

Here’s the skinny: Late last Wednesday, the New York Fed said in a court filing that in July it had released Bank of America from all legal claims arising from losses in some mortgage-backed securities the Fed received when the government bailed out the American International Group in 2008. One surprise in the filing, which was part of a case brought by A.I.G., was that the New York Fed let Bank of America off the hook even as A.I.G. was seeking to recover $7 billion in losses on those very mortgage securities.

Each year, Congress provides between
$10 and $52 billion to the oil, gas and coal
industries. By any measure these subsidies are
huge and wasteful. This graphic highlights
the range of estimates of these subsidies, and
the urgent need to eliminate them.

The three largest fossil fuel subsidies were:

Foreign tax credit ($15.3 billion)

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

Oil and Gas exploration and development expenses ($7.1 billion)

Read it and weep, Dweeb.

And keep asking the same, dumb questions!!

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.

They made that choice to depend on the Federal Government and now you sound like a Modern Liberal wanting somebody else or the Federal Government to do the providing which is what Lenin thought too that was governments role to provide a level of Social Security too instead of people providing for themselves and I know alot of elderly that planned economically to be able to provide for themselves instead of depending on the Welfare Assistance from the Federal Government which they didnt trust the Federal Government to begin and the smart ones and know that Social Security & Medicare can be reduced or eliminated at anytime because both programs are based on a tax.

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.
