What's interesting is that the Keystone XL route and purpose have already been discussed on this and various other forums as well as reasonable estimates of how many US jobs, both temporary and permanent, will be created.
You must have missed those discussions eh?
Or more likely you, like Carol, are simply out to amuse yourself.
Keystone gives Obama the chance to choose between his labor union supporters and the environmental whackos.

Labor unions will take hind tit once again. They are useless to the Democrats except as voters. Suckers.

It does seem silly.
I guess it'd be one thing if it were planned, but to suddenly make cuts is a drastic way to run an organization.
As you well know, any organization as dysfunctional as the US Government would be out of business in no time.
China smiles as America argues with itself. Their controlled economy has outperformed ours for over a decade, with American Corporation's generous help to China. And the Corporations don't pay American taxes on their Chinese profits!! Only to China!!
So, over the years they've exported millions of American jobs to cheap labor nations. With the blessings of Dems and Repubs.
Then they blame Americans for being lazy and looking for Gov't help because they can't live on the slave wages so common today.
And you appear to have bought into this nonsense.
Who's got it better than us?? Many nations, you really need to travel more. Try the northern tier of Europe, to start.
It's not sudden. The size of the cuts has been known for more than a year and planning should have been done.

The US has just pledged $60 million to the Syrian opposition in what is being called non lethal aide. I think that's a bullshyte deal personally and only designed to speed "some/any conclusion" to the Assad horror show.
IMO that craziness needs to play itself out without US involvement beyond assisting with the refugees.
How many teacher's jobs could be saved by the $60 million that we are pissing away in the Syrian civil war?

Small-government advocates often claim that high taxes hold the economy back. But a new report finds that states without a personal income tax have experienced slower economic growth than states with high income tax rates.

The report, from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, found that between 2002 and 2011, the economies of the nine U.S. states without a personal income tax grew 37 percent less quickly per capita than states with high income taxes.

Did or dd not Obama submit a budget every year he was supposed to. The 2014 is due out this month.
It is a rather simple question that you can't seem to answer.
So did he or didn't he?
Yes, Obama sure as hell did, and the budget was so silly that even the Democrats didn't want to vote for it.

While Obama is still blaming Republicans for everything that has ever gone wrong in his administration - somehow forgetting Democrats had control of Congress the last two years of the Bush administration, the first two years of the Obama administration, and who resisted any effort to rein in Fannie and Freddie for years leading up to the crisis - the Republicans washed their hands of the mess insisting the bills they passed in the last Congress to avert the cuts were passed with little to no Democratic support and were never taken up by the Senate.
So let's get this straight:
It was Republicans who tried to reign in Fannie and Freddie and Democrats who fought it every step of the way...It was Democrats who controlled Congress two years leading up to the crisis and two years after the crisis...And it was Republicans who passed bills in the House to avert the cuts with no support by the Democrats or never even taken up by the Senate.
How is anyone not getting this?
How is anyone not getting this?

They DON"T WANT TO.

The rest of us accept reality as it spills out from the gate.

The Democrats really have made a mess of things, haven't they?
First, they resisted reining in Fannie and Freddie in the face of numerous warnings in the years leading up to the crisis.
They controlled Congress prior to and after the crisis.
They never passed a budget or proposed any solutions the past four years rejecting Obama's budget proposals twice.
They didn't take up any bills passed by the House to avoid the recent embarrassment.
And they still don't want to cut spending.
So explain to me again how Democrats aren't held responsibile for any of this mess and everything - I mean everything - is simply all the Republicans' fault?
It makes things nice and tidy for the Democrats to point fingers and come out smelling like a rose, but is it really as nice and tidy as they would have you believe?

Funny you should say that. I was reminded last night of the movie "Trading Places" when Eddie Murphy conned everyone until he was given Dan Akroyd's home and all his valuable things.
When he invited his friends over for a party, he became very obsessive about them stealing his things and trashing his home.
That's how I see this president. He doesn't see this country as his home. It's more of an experiment to test his personal vision. If everything is destroyed in the process, oh well. He has no personal connection or vestment in it anyway.
In fact, I think he even resents the "home" he was given charge over. That's my honest opinion.
carol, your opinion is shared by millions.

I have some news.
Every time the House passes a bill that reduces the availability of abortions, repeals parts of the ACA or waters down the financial Reform law, they know it will go no where in the Senate.
All they do is dupe the feeble minded.
Republican ideas for spending cuts were aimed at the ACA & watering down the financial reform bill.
Thy knew it would go no where.
...hey...ImanginaryDave.....yo u didn't answer any of the listed questions.

Hey! You aren't consciously trying to avoid the truth by changing the subject, are you?
