You're damn right we have no tolerance for you racist, everything-for-the-rich, War-by-lies, CIA imperialist bootlicks. You're a cancer on humanity. You hate us, and we hate you right back.

I agree California is awesome. My wife and I may retire in the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area. Sure it's still years off but now that my 401K is once again rocking and rolling after the Bush debacle I think we'll be okay.

What subsidies?
I hear the word "subsidies" said a lot. I just have never seen anything to back that Democrat propaganda bullshit up.
Tell us about those mythical subsidies to oil companies.
From the NY Times about one year ago:

Obama’s Bid to End Oil Subsidies Revives DebateBy JOHN M. BRODER
Published: January 31, 2011

WASHINGTON — When he releases his new budget in two weeks, President Obama will propose doing away with roughly $4 billion a year in subsidies and tax breaks for oil companies, in his third effort to eliminate federal support for an industry that remains hugely profitable.

For soem reason, you can't identify a single subsidy to oil companies. Why is that?
Organize your list, then just put them here one by one.
Subsidy number 1:________?
Subsidy number 2:________?
etc., etc., etc.
Got a problem there, don't you? That's because those subsidies you talk about don't exist. It's just another propaganda lie from the Democrats.
Or, I could be wrong. Tell us about those subsidies to oil companies you read from the API report.
I'm just going by what YOUR leaders are saying.

They obviously think there are oil subsidies else why did they vote to keep them?

I never said anything about an API report, dumbass. I was talking abut what the head of the API said.

Try to keep up.

But, he's a priority in your mind.

Your thoughts always stray to what Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and other GOP/Conservative Analysis state.

So, I believe you do give a HOT-DAMN! Ooh Yeah, selective filter!

If you invested as much time and devotion to what YOUR party of Liberals are involved in, you might have a better understanding of WHY and HOW Obama and this Administration are failing America and The American People.

Thereby, affording you a more balanced, accurate and precise perspective on Politics.

That approach would serve ALL well.

PS You can deny all you want.
BUT, in the final analysis ...

Sixth grade misogyny...is that what you do when you call carol a "slut".
I called Jane a slut, not carol, and that was an allusion to an old SNL bit. If you read back, you will notice it was in response to Cherokreep's threatening Lily that he could find her any time he wanted and calling her a bitch. I know carol's a liar, racist, and drain on society, but I have no idea about her sexuality or lack thereof.

If Bernanke fails to give strong reassurance in his testimony tomorrow that the Fed will continue to prop up the market, then you will see a real crash.

The scale was much smaller in AZ and the illegals there were not really doing much more than chore work, maids and gardeners in Scottsdale at first__but never the less the illegals in AZ were welcomed right up until they weren't.

CA was way different__the illegals in CA were productive to the enth degree helping to feed the USA and a few other good sized nations and Californian's had other strangers in their midst going way back, Asians of all sorts for instance and the dustbowl Okies LOL. That the aprovechar followed should have surprised exactly no one.

Check out Temecula, really much nicer than Palm Springs/Palm Desert, and equally affordable.
