That is about where it is with many Americans-North West.
However, the Sunday Morning news shows are not TMZ and should be about issues that concern Americans. I do not think where is Waldo aka Snowden is worthy of a whole lot of airtime on such a show.
This guy committed TREASON against our nation, and you're unconcerned??

You really are one sick, nasty old biddy.

In case you hadn't noticed, the IRS scandal is dead. Mr Grand Theft, alias Daryl Issa, is reduced to refusing to release the transcripts, because they clear Obama of any involvement in what the IRS did.

In spite of FOX lies to the contrary, there is no 'smoking gun'.

It's all just another racist attack on Obama by hateful ole white witches like you, much like the Birfer stupidity.

Legislation to outlaw or severely restrict abortion.
Nope

I have clearly stated them-

Abortion clinics should be inspected routinely and maintained at acceptable health standards as other health facilities.

The second is the debate about viability of the fetus. It is illegal in many states to cause the death of a viable fetus either by willful intent(murdering the mother) or not. Should abortion have the same standards where the willful death of viable fetus in vitro occurs?

The ethics of abortion does not require a religious viewpoint.

The long term when supply and demand are equalized and the prices of NG goes up.
The second issue is fracking creates sulfur which must be removed prior to NG being used. This is creating a new pollution.
Sulfur cannot be created, so what do you mean?

Yeah, people keeping more of their own money, government cutting out waste and duplication and drilling for our own resources providing jobs and energy independence is really a losing formula.
Only to adults who still need a nanny.
Republicans are only interested in cutting waste that does not directly affect them.

Remember Romney stating that he wanted to eliminate “the Amtrak subsidy, the PBS subsidy, the subsidy for the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities?” Big whoop. If you people want to cut waste, start with the military. There is not bigger waste basket. Until then, stop acting like you are interested in cutting waste.

As far as oil companies are concerned, they refuse to invest money in more refineries while claiming they should be allowed to export "our" crude oil to other countries because they can't refine it. Don't look to the oil companies to aid us in becoming "energy independent". They are rapist, pure and simple.

You're rabid hatred of the colored guy in the White House has derailed your ability to make a coherent argument (assuming you were ever capable of such). In your reply, taken within the context of the post you're replying to, you're saying that 99.99999% of Americans are Obama voters.
Obama voters, in large part, are wards of the government, they are a net drain on our economy - and our society.
Obama, a liberal millionaire, has convinced you that conservative wealth is evil and the middle class, are victims. That's an attitude shared only by socialist crooks, lowlifes and greedy parasites.

His blackness is of no concern to me, it's his character that pisses me off. You clowns use his color as a weapon and a shield. That jig is up.

Even from a nitwit like you, that is one really stupid question you asked, Flake.

Bush used 9-11 to start two wars, wars he ultimately failed to win.

Liberals want to avoid a repeat of Bush's stupidity, which you and most of the nitwits here supported.

Perhaps if Bush had listened to the ample warnings before 9-11, none of this would have happened.

But you're way too stupid to understand.

Let me ask you this: If Obama had an "R" after his name instead of a "D" would you then be making excuses for his actions?
Let me remind you that it is you making excuses for calling the poster racist.

I pointed out that your comment was baseless.

You need to stick to what the poster stated.

Natural gas is too valuable as a resource, regardless of current price, to be burned as fuel for power over the long-term.
Natural gas is the obvious bridge fuel for a transition to increased use of nuclear energy.
Converting existing fossil plants to NG (compared to constructing new NG plants) is often based on siting issues rather than economics.
More Nobraina stupidity.

NG is replacing coal precisely because of economics!! DUH\\

NG is cheaper, leaves no residue, no retainment ponds for the mercury laced slag from coal plants.

You're on a roll of abject ignorance today, old man. Go take one of your dementia pills.

But the big question is why did Snowden flee to Communist China to spill his guts?
China isn't exactly playing nice with us, you know.
He could have secured a whistleblower lawyer in the U.S. and created the same mixed reactions.
You have so much faith in our government.

BTW, China is barely edged out by Canada as our biggest trading partner.

It does seem like only yesterday when Monica was crawling around the Clinton White House on her hands and knees, stuffing and putting everything in her mouth you idiot...

Clinton, inflaming, attacking, killing millions of Muslim people in Europe, Iraq and the planet... because of a Lewinsky, you idiot... Bill Clinton starting WWWIII with the Muslim world...

Mercifully Bush is gone and has been gone for going on 5 years. He isn't today's newspaper you moron, he's last year's newspaper, president a decade ago you idiot!

LMFAO... You idiot still breastfeeding on GW Bush and sucking Dick Cheney while the country slides into an abyss and goes to hell. LMFAO...

Billionaires do not pay their fair share. That is a FACT.
If you want to keep what you've earned and not support this country through taxes, move.
The Cayman Islands is really the perfect place for you. No income, capital gains, sales or mandatory social security taxes and employers must provide a pension plan for all workers even expatriates like yourself.
You certainly wouldn't be happy in an oil rich country like Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain etc. even though they have no income or capital gains taxes you'd still have to pay into their social security program and, God forbid, we know that's not acceptable.
Conversely, Cuber would be ideal for you. No more wealth, no more envy, no more problems.

You are still missing the point. The Gosnell trial brought up issues with abortion and may be related to the public shift on abortion sentiments.
It was about the trial and public awareness of abortion issues and problems not the conviction.
One of the things brought up in the trial was the failure of PA to inspect Abortion clinics for over something like 8 years. The Gosnell clinic was filthy and unsafe.
The Gosnell trial brought the abortion debate to the forefront? Is that what you're suggesting? Couldn't be all the anti-abortion legislation passing through various state legislatures and the House? Couldn't be that its the biggest teaser the GOP uses to get voters to the polls?

And let me get this one straight ... you're a teabagger calling for more government regulation and oversight?
