Your hero Rand Paul says oil subsidies exist:http://mycn2.com/politic s/rand-paul-says-oil-industry- subsidies-should-end-says-he-l l-probably-run-for-re-election
Are you calling him a liar?
So, tell us about those subsidies. You say they exist. How about you back your bullshit up with some facts.

What subsidies?

Subsidy #1:???????

Subsidy #2:???????

By the way, I want to see Andrew Napolitano run for president. I'm a federalist. That means I have some problems with Libertarians managing a federal government.
However, considering how radical this administration has been, we probably need something like a Libertarian government for a while to get us back to sanity.
... well?

And that explains Obama being indoctrinated in Marxist communism and Saul Alinsky tactics his entire life, apologizing all over the world for the United States being the United States, sabotaging Iraq, sabotaging Afghanistan, and having muslim terrorists in the White House every day.
If Obama loves this country, why did he surround himself with the people who hated the United States his entire life?
How about we get one of those old patriotic chants going.
Everybody. All together now.
"God DAMN America"
Now, that's love for a country.
Any enemy of the United States is, and has always been, a friend to Obama. That's why muslim terrorists are in the White House every day.
The million muslim march is going to be met by a million American bikers in DC on 9/11.
Which side do you think Obama will be on?

Lewis Black tells Rick Perry: Go back to college,‘and this time, try to memorize some stuff’

“He may run for president again,” Black said of Perry on Tuesday.“If that happens, as a comedian, I’m thrilled, but as a citizen, I weep.”

O’Donnell also mockingly asked Black,“Are you now or have you ever been a Canadian?,” a swipe at another Texas politician, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX).

“No, I’m not,” Black responded.“I have too much of a genetic predisposition to irony and sarcasm.”

You wouldn't understand.
So, what you're saying is, Obama "can never love this country as much as us natural born citizens." Right?

Since Obama never attended classes at Columbia, do you really think he has ever even read the Constitution?

<quoted text>Carol doesn't understand. SNAP is an excellent program.
They hear about abuses to the system with Fox News blaring in their face all day.
It's like those two black panther jackwagons at the Philly voting booth who prevented no one from voting and were chased away by the cops, Fox News blew that way out of proportion. Rightwingers were seeing black panthers popping up everywhere for months on end.
And don't even get me started on Walmart...
Of course, I understand SNAP is a good program and a necessity in a compassionate society such as ours, Homer.

What YOU don't seem to understand is we have a broken system. There are people who take advantage of those who don't know the difference between compassion and gullibility.

Explain to me why you are so against accountability and oversight and why you support an oversized government who can't do either.

And why you are so against eliminating waste, fraud, abuse and duplication.

I really don't understand.

If you think you just described poor people, you are a GD idiot. You described a group of people some of which are poor.
In the rantings about poor people, you & your right whiner buddies do here everyday, you include the working poor, anyone that receives any government help.
But hey, I understand your need to justify your hate of poor people so you make up the description you stated.
A new study by the CATO Institute, a public policy think tank, found that some welfare recipients make more “income” than those in the private sector.

A mother with two children in New York, for instance, is able to collect $38,004 per year in welfare handouts. This is greater than the starting salary of a teacher in the state.

And the problem is not limited to New York. CATO found that many states give handouts with sums greater than what workers earn in the private sector. According to the study, Hawaii is generally the most generous with benefits — there, a mother of two is eligible to earn $60,590 per year.

The study also pointed out the least generous states. A mother of two in Idaho, the state that came in dead last, is only eligible for $11,150 per year.

Perhaps most unsettling is the fact that in 33 states, welfare recipients make more than they would at an $8 per hour job. In fact, in 12 of those states, welfare recipients make more than they would at a $12 per hour job.

*frankly I hate these lazy bitches. Poor my ass.
If you pay them more not to work than they can earn by working, many will choose not to work.”

Welfare programs have ballooned since former president Lyndon B Johnson declared a “war on poverty.” Since then, a whopping $15 trillion has been spent on programs to help the needy.

Now, 83 federal welfare programs combined represent the largest federal expenditure. In 2011 alone,$1.028 trillion was spent on welfare payments.

Three members of the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins decided not to attend an event Tuesday honoring the team at the White House due to political differences with the president.
The Sun-Sentinel reported that Hall of Fame center Jim Langer, defensive tackle Manny Fernandez and guard Bob Kuechenberg skipped the event, which made up for the time the team did not get the chance to go to the White House because, in part, President Richard Nixon was embroiled in the Watergate scandal.
The three players spoke with the paper and kept their comments brief, but direct.
"We've got some real moral compass issues in Washington," Langer said. "I don't want to be in a room with those people and pretend I'm having a good time. I can't do that. If that [angers] people, so be it."
Fernandez, for his part, told the paper that his views are "dramatically opposed to the President's."
"Enough said. Let's leave it at that. I hope everyone enjoys the trip who goes."
Kuechenberg said it would be hypocritical for him to be there, the paper reported.
"I don't want to do that. I just don't believe in this administration at all. So I don't belong. Anyone on the left or the right has to respect one man's opinion," he said

Want health care?
You've already got it. No hospital can refuse treatment to anyone who needs it.
Or, what you really want is the same health insurance as everyone else paying for it, right?

I'll tell you how to get health insurance like everyone in Congress has: get elected to Congress.
How to get health insurance everyone who works their whole life has: get a fucking job and show up for work every day on time and do what you're paid to do while you're at work.

Problem solved. That wasn't too difficult.
What other problem can we solve for you?

Yes, most of you locos do:
The man who allegedly exchanged gunfire with officers inside an Atlanta-area elementary has a "long history of medical disorders," according to his brother, who said suspect Michael Hill was bound to "do something stupid."
"I honestly can tell you he has got a long history of medical disorders, including bipolar, and that could make you snap on a dime," Timothy Hill told ABC News. "My moms almost looked like a drugstore at one point. There was so many different medications he was on."
Police said Michael Hill, 20, will face charges including aggravated assault on a police officer, terroristic threats and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.
Timothy Hill, 22, said he's not close to his brother and thinks he last saw him in January 2011. Hill did not disclose his brother's complete mental health history but said he was taking drugs for treating attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder as early as age 6.
Hill said his brother had once threatened to kill him. "I had a feeling he was going to eventually, one day, do something stupid, but not of this magnitude."

Actually he did stupid. The Republicans wanted the Bush tax cuts to be retained across the board and Obama wanted them to stay the same for those making under $250,000 ($200,000 for individuals) and for them to go up to pretax cut levels for those making more than that. The final legislation raised taxes on those making more than $400,000 while retaining the lower rates for 98% of taxpayers.
That's called a compromise.
Targeting specific individuals is un-American.

It's not global warming. Some scientists speculate it's the increase in pesticides in the environment. Others speculate it's the magnetic poles are shifting.
But it's not global warming. The average global temperature has gone down, not up, in recent years. The average global temperatures dropped since at least 2002. The temperature has decreased by 0.74°F (0.39°C) since January 24, 2006.
http://www.thetimes.co.uk/tto/environment/art...
Whatever it is, it's quite concerning.
Global temperatures have been going down Carol? Where did you get that crap? Here's some actual facts;
• Average temperatures have climbed 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit (0.8 degree Celsius) around the world since 1880, much of this in recent decades, according to NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies.
• The rate of warming is increasing. The 20th century's last two decades were the hottest in 400 years and possibly the warmest for several millennia, according to a number of climate studies. And the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) reports that 11 of the past 12 years are among the dozen warmest since 1850.
• The Arctic is feeling the effects the most. Average temperatures in Alaska, western Canada, and eastern Russia have risen at twice the global average, according to the multinational Arctic Climate Impact Assessment report compiled between 2000 and 2004.
• Arctic ice is rapidly disappearing, and the region may have its first completely ice-free summer by 2040 or earlier. Polar bears and indigenous cultures are already suffering from the sea-ice loss.
• Glaciers and mountain snows are rapidly melting—for example, Montana's Glacier National Park now has only 27 glaciers, versus 150 in 1910. In the Northern Hemisphere, thaws also come a week earlier in spring and freezes begin a week later.
• Coral reefs, which are highly sensitive to small changes in water temperature, suffered the worst bleaching—or die-off in response to stress—ever recorded in 1998, with some areas seeing bleach rates of 70 percent. Experts expect these sorts of events to increase in frequency and intensity in the next 50 years as sea temperatures rise.
• An upsurge in the amount of extreme weather events, such as wildfires, heat waves, and strong tropical storms, is also attributed in part to climate change by some experts.
