McCain and Graham are history, convenient foils for the Democrats and their lapdog media.
And to think, just 4 1/2 years ago, you were damn near campaigning for McCain, calling him the maverick. Now he's really been an undercover surrogate of Obama's all along? Your confusion leads to delusion, which ends in your party losing!

What should we "save" it for?
Look around you, is their anything near you that isn't at least partially composed of petroleum product or that petroleum products (other than as an energy source) were used their manufacture?
In the near future when petroleum based energy has been replaced by better technology there's still gonna be a big demand for oil.
A point that entirely escapes the left.

Another reason for greater use of nuclear energy, but the obvious answer has no chance in a leftist political environment.

Notice that the cleanest, best, and virtually unlimited energy source is never even mentioned.

lol
just because the beltway media need controversial issues to pull viewers doesn't make it the most important issue to Americans. why do you think that the preponderance of the guests on those shows are wingnut Republicans?
it's amazing how little you wingnuts actually know about how things really work.
Again watch the brainless name calling.

Are you suggesting the Dems do not want the now Anonymous-turned Snowden captured?

Obama wants him extradited-remember.

However, as the most important issue to Americans -nope.

<quoted text>Americans are tossed on this issue. 90% of Americans also approve of NSA data collection if it leads to the capture of terrorists or foiling of terrorist plots. "The proof of the pudding is in the eating!" American pragmatism is deep in our DNA. Americans also find no cause for worry about large private Telecom companies data mining personal information and selling it to the highest bidder in the market place. You can no longer buy or sell the 'person', but only the person's 'information profile'.
NO

Americans support NSA data collection on foreign terrorists, but not on Americans.

Don't know that for sure. But I do know Soros is known as "The Man Who Broke the Bank of England" because of his US $1 billion in investment profits during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.

As I stated Gosnell brought to the public attention issues with Abortion Clinic safety and what is infanticide.
Was Gosnell convicted of murder or performing abortions?

The abortion issue will always come to the surface after such events as Gosnell slashing throats of newborns occur.
This resulted in a shift in Americans opinions about the issue, inspection or lack of clinics, etc.
This may bore you but infant viability and safety of women will always be of interest to me. It is about public health.
Should it be mandatory that abortion clinics have routine inspections is most definitely a public interest question. If it isn't happening, then the policy needs changed.
What is infanticide? Does it occur only after birth or does it occur when the umbilical cord is cut prior to birth to guarantee the would-be-viable infant is stillborn?
Some things are not all about politics.
But, I continued to re-post the poll due to Dave's and Yeah's confusion about what it stated.
Abortion is a constitutionally protected right. Has been since 1973.
----------

""Roe v. Wade, 410 U.S. 113 (1973), is a landmark decision by the United States Supreme Court on the issue of abortion. Decided simultaneously with a companion case, Doe v. Bolton, the Court ruled 72 that a right to privacy under the due process clause of the 14th Amendment extended to a woman's decision to have an abortion, but that right must be balanced against the state's two legitimate interests in regulating abortions: protecting prenatal life and protecting women's health. Arguing that these state interests became stronger over the course of a pregnancy, the Court resolved this balancing test by tying state regulation of abortion to the trimester of pregnancy."

You are one of the idiots who blame Gov't on invading your privacy, yet you're too stupid to see that's exactly what you're doing with your unConstitutional anti-abortion beliefs.

----------

Why do you nitwits hate the US Constitution and defy it's rulings??

Because you're sore losers, that's why!!

You insist on outlawing safe abortion centers, yet bitch and whine when people like Gosnell are all that's left for poor women.

You're another sick old post menopausal woman, just like Carol, who you appear to have a crush on. Go munch her carpet elsewhere, ya freak!!

THE GENIUS!

Borrows long term at 1.8% to fix the Republican mess.

The top few % are worth over $60 Trillion today.

USA owes 16.

Billionaires do not need tax cuts. They don't deserve them. They made all that dough with tax rates as is. Then complain tax rates are too high? When?

When they were able to amass huge fortunes with tax rates historically higher than now?

Bush/Cheney: "we are due"

So they handed out the US TREASURY TO ALREADY RICH PEOPLE.

During wartime.

Dumb that.

I say cut taxes for average folks who will spend it now.

Raise taxes on rich people who already have everything and can afford it.

Our economy got strong because of a strong middle, buying stuff everyday in large numbers.

We have always had a few rich at the top owning most of the pie, they don't spend enough to drive a large economy. HOARDERS!

Word association:

Republican. Greedy.

Republican. Idiot.

Republican. Hypocrite.

How come you omitted developing new, alternative energy sources. This country was able to put a man on the Moon in less than a decade from starting with failed launches of satellites.

am I to believe that in the over 120 years of the internal combustion engine and coal produced electrical power we haven't been able to develop more efficient, cleaner sources of power....

gee I wonder why

Right. Fukushima is a great example of what nuclear can do.

And look where a host of them are located... in the Ohio valley area of the US.

Fukushima was "prepared" for an earthquake and tidal wave.

I wonder what an earthquake would do in the Ohio Valley?

"The mixed-use Mizner Park town center demonstrates how suburban communities can create vital downtowns by redeveloping abandoned shopping centers. In Boca Raton, Florida, redeveloping the underused Boca Raton Mall into a community center removed a blighted property and helped revitalize the surrounding community." http://www.epa.gov/smartgrowth/case/mizner.ht...
Human nature is for people to want their space, to want to spread out, to not want to be packed closely together.

Abandoned shopping centers should be bulldozed.

Further proof that Nobraina can't comprehend what he reads.

In his insanity, everything must be twisted from the truth in order for Nobraina to tell outrageous lies.

Funny that it's the Repugnants who are pushing to arm the Syrian opposition.

Obama has resisted it every step of the way, while McLame goes to visit Al Queda in Syria.
