One could argue about Communist, Socialist, Fascist, etc...but inept certainly applies.

In fact, the only thing saving the country at present is the complete ineptness of Obama.

From your article:
"When asked if the government's collection of Americans' phone call records is a necessary tool to help find terrorists, a slight majority of 53 percent say it is."
"But fewer Americans are concerned about their own personal communications being monitored. Just over a third is at least somewhat concerned about the government collecting their own phone records (38 percent) and monitoring their internet use (35 percent); six in 10 are not concerned."
"Asked if the government has gone too far in infringing on people's privacy in its efforts to fight terrorism, 46 percent think the balance is about right..... 36 percent say the government has gone too far" and "13 percent think the government hasn't gone far enough."
Polling clueless fools means squat.

Obama Quietly Raises 'Carbon Price' as Costs to Climate Increase

"Even supporters questioned the way the administration slipped the policy out without first opening it for public comment. The change was buried in an afternoon announcement on May 31 about efficiency standards for microwave ovens, a rule not seen as groundbreaking.

“This is a very strange way to make policy about something this important,” Frank Ackerman, an economist at Tufts University who published a book about the economics of global warming, said in an interview. The Obama administration “hasn’t always leveled with us about what is happening behind closed doors.”

This is preposterous ,shoddy reporting by Bloomberg.com news because the EPA has been using this kind of carbon-accounting method for years in their reports and wrote a scathing criticism of the State Department for not using it for their own analysis of the prevailing costs of building the TransCanada Keystone XL pipeline. "For years, the Environmental Protection Agency has urged the State Department to do just this kind of calculation as part of its environmental review of the Keystone project. But the State Department has never done so.

In April, in a review sharply critical of the State Department's latest draft environmental impact statement for the project, the EPA again urged this approach.

It cited estimates that the tar sands crude oil the pipeline would carry could add 19 million tons of incremental emissions to the atmosphere each year—the amount of extra pollution due to the fact that tar sands oil is dirtier than conventional oil and uses more energy to produce. Using the new carbon cost estimate, the extra emissions from the oil delivered in the year 2020 alone would impose future costs of more than $800 million in today's dollars. Every following year's emissions would add to the economic harm, and at a steadily escalating price per ton.

"If greenhouse gas intensity of oil sands crude is not reduced, over a 50 year period the additional carbon dioxide from oil sands crude transported by the pipeline could be as much as 935 million metric tons," the EPA told the State Department. "It is this difference in greenhouse gas intensity—between oil sands and other crudes—that is a major focus of the public debate about the climate impacts of oil sands crude."

Some analysts contend that the social damage costs from the Keystone would be far higher."

In today’s episode of “What’s good for me is not good for thee” we find then-Senator Joe Biden in 2006 pontificating on the evils of spying presidents. Funny how Joe’s position has “evolved” in seven years, huh?

On Fox News’ Special Report with Bret Baier, last night, a video from May 12, 2006 was aired in which Biden admonished us not to trust a president who spies on the American people.

“If I know every single phone call you’ve made, I’m able to determine every single person you’ve talked to; I can get a pattern about your life that is very, very intrusive. And the real question here, is what do they do with this information that they collect – that does not have anything to do with al-Qaeda? And we’re gonna trust the president and the vice president that they’re doing the right thing? Don’t count me in on that.”

So, what’s changed, Joe? Other than it’s now Barack Obama who’s doing the “information collecting,” I mean? Anyway, don’t count me – or other freedom-loving Americans – in, either.

Dumbass Dave's liquor store is not a business, but a government monopoly.

Government union checkout clerks earn $60K per year, guaranteeing highest liquor prices in the US. But they offer lousy selection and surly attitude as compensation.
