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.

Nuclear power is a dead issue, too bad for you and Tenzing.

There was a brief window of opportunity prior to Fukishima, but the worldwide public has turned firmly against it.

Once again, you are part of a tiny dumb minority bucking the trends of modernity.

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?

Got it.
You support US intervention in Syria because it's Obama's idea.
Great.
Unlike Bush, Obama acknowledges that boots on the ground in Syria would be bad for America. Without a doubt, we are better off without a Republican president who is beholden to the military machine.

Gosnell was prosecuted (for murder) for performing the same procedures as others because he became overly brazen and thought he could get away with anything.
Was he convicted of violating abortion law?

The New KKK has double since Obama has been elected, Libs are KKK every day, and twice on Sundays. Obama has done more to enslave blacks, Klan Parent Hood is killing off blacks, the Klu Klux Klan loves a half white ass Obama, the KKK would have committed suicide if Herman Cain was elected

<quoted text>It doesn't,but drilling for more oil gets us deeper into debt and dependency to foreign oil---using up your own scarcer oil resources first puts you faster at the mercy of other states with greater oil reserves. Best practices would be to save your own scarce oil (leave it in the ground) and develop more plentiful reserves of energy alternatives that you have more readily at hand and the inexpensive ,simple technology to develop it from the sun, wind, and earth.
"back porch idiot"
Sun, wind and earth;
- Readily at hand? Yes.
- Inexpensive? Apparently not.
With the current high prices for energy you would think some one would jump all over the sources you cite. Easy to do, low cost you would think those greedy corporations would jump all over it.

Abortion issue may not be working for the GOP in 2013?

Gosnell trial involved Babies born alive in abortion clinic and then killed.
Murder charges for those involved is the law.

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.
... such as what?

I'm not the one complaining about paying taxes for the privilege of living in the United States. That is a Republican problem. I, on the other hand, appreciate what America has given me and am happy to support it.
