China has not signed the Kyoto Protocol and is exempt anyway because it is considered a developing country.

That was totally off-topic and dumb.
I was discussing why the Dow Jones dropped sharply just before close today.
If you don't know the answer, just say so.

The reason for market movement on any particular day is highly technical, but there is no question that the current trend of the market is downward.

If they cave in on amnesty, their base will stay home and they will lose in 2014.
Why vote for a party that ignores their base?
If people want the Dems to win because they choose to pout, that is their right.

Allowing someone who represents your wants less than the one you refused to vote for is the choice they made and have to live with the consequences of.

The United States never ratified the Kyoto Protocol, and Canada withdrew in 2011.

If the West pursues the Kyoto Protocol, it will be economic suicide. That's why Presidents have ignored it while Tree Huggers whine about it.

China has been on a Coal-Fired Power Plant construction binge for years now.

And the Magic Negro wants to tax our Coal Industry into oblivion.

George Soros is snickering.

General Electric, a tax-exempt Obama crony corporation, is making huge tax-free profits selling equipment to China for coal-fired power plants that will produce cheap power to drive America in to the ground.

I have never followed Horse Racing but for Sea Biscuit's story.

Hand wringing is for wimps. The Left no matter how poorly Obama is doing never come here to whine about him. Something moderates and conservatives need to learn and fast.

Of course, I sometimes think they are totally delusional.

The only retirees who return to screw around are the losers and their advice is unwanted.
Bill Clinton and Jimmah Carter know they screwed up--they are trying to change/improve their legacy ever since they left office. I don't who we see more lately, Bill Clinton or O'bama. Seems to me Clinton thinks he is still running the country, and Carter is still pushing for the terrorists in Palestine.

Same with cap and trade, the Kyoto is designed to impact and end economic prosperity for the United States. All countries are laughing at us.

Right. And the guy running GE sits on the Magic Negro's Jobs Council.

Liberals love the feel of a noose around their necks but only if the hangman is a Democrat.

That stupid Peanut Farmer has always tried pawning himself off as a Don Quixote tilting at Windmills.

I wish he would do his tilting at some hi-speed wind turbines instead.

Okay I am looking at the CBO report where they state that one would normally expect that those who gain a job another would loose a job but that is implausible.
So, please explain where are all these "new" jobs are originating from.
The CBO also state that they normally use current Unemployment figures and GDP but dropped that standard for this report.

Seems to me that both are totally ignored by Obama, except to drag Bill Clinton on-stage to campaign in return for paying off Hillary's moldy campaign debts.

I almost thought Politico wrote a negative Obama story. First paragraph stated his problem but was quickly full of helpful advice like terrorize your enemies.

Whew, would hate to see Politico return to honest reporting -it may tilt the center of universe or something equally bad.
