How many thousands of Americans unknowingly carry an internal death sentence, maybe an aneurysm or cancer that is beyond treating? Only the tragic time and circumstances of demise await recording.
Is our nation in the same sick bed? Is Benjamin Franklin’s proud but precarious Republic, Madame, beyond saving? Grave concern is justified.
If our popular, reelected president thinks—and says out loud—that the Founders’ framework of divided powers, checks and balances, and limited, decentralized control is JUST A BIG DRAG on “progress,” and then, the nation doesn’t toss him out forthwith, is that a critical vital sign?
If our populace forgets--or never knew--the warning of America’s greatest president:“Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force. Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and fearful master,” but instead, our people admire the COOL INCUMBENT who implores them to reject the voices that warn that big government leads to tyranny, then can we conclude the people have LOST the energy and vigilance that history has always demanded of free people?
If the president’s implausible account of current scandals is true—
“I didn’t direct the IRS to stomp conservatives! That was low level scoundrels! There’s no plot to abuse the media…the Justice Department just kinda’ went rogue on the Associated Press! And my Brother Holder was recused, anyway! There’s no Benghazi cover-up! My administration simply laundered and sanitized the account of slaughtered American diplomats and protectors as part of a petty, bureaucratic spitting contest between CIA and State! My fingerprints are nowhere near the bloody scene! Hell! After I was briefed, I split to pack for Vegas; any questions about where I was are ‘offensive’, you racist!”
--Then does it reveal that, beyond this current maladministration, we suffer under the accumulated, metastasizing mass of an imperious, arbitrary bureaucracy? Do we live under Leviathan, that can, for its own self-serving reasons, ruin any one of us, if and when it chooses?
How, exactly, does a free people overthrow an abusive bureaucracy that, as David Axelrod asserts, is too vast for even the president to be aware of, let alone control?
Lady, you're full of shit & it's seeping through your pores! You don't, you can't overthrow this administration. IT'S UNAMERICAN! You will do what we had to do for 8yrs as Bush demolished this country, wait on the next election & pray you find a conservative qualified enough to take out Hillary. Fat chance! I will continue to do what the average American does when you bring up these b/s scandals, deflect everything back to the master of disaster, George W. Bush! Democrats can run on that for the next 4 elections & no matter how much you ignore it, you can't deny it!

On the day the bill was introduced into the Senate that would eliminate oil subsidies, Mitch McConnell's campaign fund received over $131,00.00 in donations from the oil industry. Three days later the bill had been killed through a filibuster.

Recent criticism of the use of myriad as a noun, both in the plural form myriads and in the phrase a myriad of, seems to reflect a mistaken belief that the word was originally and is still properly only an adjective. As the entries here show, however, the noun is in fact the older form, dating to the 16th century. The noun myriad has appeared in the works of such writers as Milton (plural myriads) and Thoreau (a myriad of), and it continues to occur frequently in reputable English. There is no reason to avoid it.

LOL, thanks, this explains a lot about why Realtime keeps trying to claim posters here have multiple IDs.

The only poster here who has such a picky fetish about grammar is lesonnoa (or some such spelling).

Traditionally "of" should not follow "myriad."

Let's keep it simple stupid__the founder of the modern conservative movement William F Buckley Jr. would never have used "of" after myriad or "a" before it.

Buckley would have said that (so and so) uses myriad names while posting on topix daily.

Now run along so and so.

That is your viewpoint.

The law is they do have tax-exempt status and the IRS cannot target them for either their philosophy or political believes.

The truth is that the oil and gas industry receives the same kinds of tax treatments that every other manufacturing or extractive industry receives in the federal tax code. There is nothing uncommon or out of the mainstream of tax treatments about any of the provisions that have been repeatedly proposed for repeal.

So how did all of this misinformation get started? It all began in 2009. Within days of being sworn in as the nation’s 44th President, Barack Obama ordered his staff to scour the tax code for any provision that was relevant to the oil and gas industry, and promptly began proposing them for repeal. The oil and gas industry has always been an easy target for political demagoguery, and that dynamic has played out repeatedly and consistently in this Administration.

Unfortunately, most media outlets and reporters have chosen to basically repeat the Administration’s mantra that these tax treatments – several of which have been in the tax code for almost a century – are somehow unique, specific to the oil and gas industry, and are “subsidies” for “big oil”. A great example of just how inaccurate this depiction is applies to Percentage Depletion, which has been a feature of the tax code since 1913, meaning it will be a full century old this year.

Basically, Percentage Depletion is the oil and gas industry’s version of a depreciation deduction for its main asset, which is the oil and natural gas in the ground, commonly known as its reserves. Every industry of any kind is allowed a depreciation deduction on its assets under the U.S. Tax Code, but, far from being a “subsidy” for “big oil”, this tax treatment was in fact repealed for all integrated oil companies, i.e., ExxonMobil, Shell, BP, etc., in 1975, and is today available only to independent producers and royalty owners. So repeal of this extremely long-standing, completely common tax treatment would have no effect on “big oil” at all, and would in fact hit small producers and royalty owners harder than anyone else.

Offense taken. Especially since Realtime - who claims to have "set me straight" - apparently believes ALL black colleges in the United States admit all races.

Not to mention the number of times myself and others have had to "set him straight" on current events in just the past month.

So that would make you and Realtime dumb and dumber.
