"...putting an end to taxpayer-funded subsidies to large oil companies."
What subsidies?
What are the oil companies being subsidized for?
There has to be something written in some law somewhere that authorizes a payment of any subsidy for some reason. It's easy to find the subsidies paid to farmers. No problem finding them. For some reason, nobody on Earth has been able to find any subsidy paid to oil companies.
Do you think there is someone sitting in the Treasury saying something like, "I'm bored today. I think I'll just write a check to the oil companies."
I hear a lot of party line mantra about "subsidies to oil companies", but nobody has been able to give any description of them.

BTW did you know that Assad never expected to take the reigns from his daddy and trained as a dentist? Did you know that he was a decent basketball player?
There is presently a coalition of 35 plus nations that are interested in some payback for the Assad regimes almost certain use of nerve gas resulting in at least 350 deaths and upwards of 1000 injuries.
France's Hollande is pizzed to the point that France might consider going it alone if the UN and NATO can't muster the courage.
There are really no good choices about how to react against Syria.
Blowing up the government center and ministries might be fun on the cheap.
Let's go over what we do know.

Al Qaeda is our enemy.
Al Qaeda is in Syria.
How about we kill Al Qaeda in Syria?

This is because they are either dishonest & uninformed.
depends on the reason for logging, the wishes of the landowner, and the type of logging and where. Swamp logging of pine is replanted just like corn or wheat. Hardwood logging, like in WV, is naturally seeded from existing trees. You must be really dense to think that loggers don't replant their crop.

"Fox News has rushed to defend oil companies in the wake of a Senate hearing in which oil executives were questioned about whether their companies should continue to receive tax subsidies. This follows Fox's long history of defending oil companies from criticism."
This is your evidence?
And, Mediamatters?
I've just got a couple of questions... well, more than a couple. Let's just start with the obvious.
Why in hell would you consider mediamatters a credible source?
How did Fox News "rush to defend oil companies"?
Your "source" was just a little weak describing that... well, they actually didn't back that statement up at all.
"oil executives were questioned about whether their companies should continue to receive tax subsidies"
WHAT SUBSIDIES?
What subsidies to oil companies are you talking about?
If you can't find any subsidies to oil companies, why do you think they exist? Because some Democrat asked about it?
I've got a suggestion. How about Obama cut those mythical subsidies out of the next budget he proposes.
BWAAAAWWW HAAAAAAAAAWWWWW HAAAAAAAAAAAAAWWWWWW
Its a video of your hero's show. In it he talks about these subsidies.

Oil company execs admit they exist.

Even you can't deny they exist.

And really, Mr Consti-f*cking - tution here thinks the President can just cut things out of the budget & change tax law all by himself.

You really get stupid when you are losing arguments.

So, seeding from existing trees is replanting?

What I am saying is that not all logging operations replant.

I see it all the time in PA on public land. They come in & take 90-95 % of everything & leave. There is no replanting.

Let's review some recent history.

The Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda aren't strong enough to take over Libya.

Karzai put the kabash on Obama's plan to put the Taliban back in control of the government of Afghanistan.

The Musliim Brotherhood just got kicked out of the government of Egypt.

Obama is 0 for three.

Now, Obama is going to help the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Qaeda take over Syria.

Who thinks Obama will be 0 for four after he gets Americans killed trying to help Al Qaeda in Syria?

Obama is Putin's bitch. That will always be true as long as Obama is so stupid he steps into every trap Putin sets. This is nothing more than a trap.

You can bet this time they are going to make us pay very dearly for putting an ignorant buffoon like Obama in as president.
We are about to get a very serious dose of egg on our face. And we have nobody to blame for it but ourselves.

To be fair when flying over West VA, or VA I did not see the complete deforestation like I did when flying over Oregon. Like I said I hope you are correct about the replanting I do remain skeptical knowing what good stewards corporate America is with our environment</end sarcasm>. I also doubt bottled/purified water is just a phase we are going through, you are old enough to remember when a person could drink water out of a faucet yes?.

No, was at the mall.

But, according to top-ranking retired military who were once sworn to secrecy, a crashed UFO is still there.

You need a lot of work on your reading and comprehension of the written English language.
Here's the statement again:

"I've got a suggestion. How about Obama cut those mythical subsidies out of the next budget he proposes."

Obama has submitted only two budgets since he came into office. These are called budget "proposals", you fucking moron.

Maybe if he took those mythical subsidies to oil companies out of his budget proposals, he might get at least one vote.
So far, the votes in Congress on the only two budgets Obama has ever submitted is 614 to ZERO. That's nothing. Nada. Zilch point shit.
Every Democrat in Congress thinks Obama is an idiot. He couldn't get one vote from even the Congressional Black Caucus.

Actually, I'm living off your dole. Just as your grandparents lived off mine.

So I'm just getting back what the government took from me - at your expense.

Sorry, but it was your party's idea.

Don't know who's dole you're going to live off of. Better start Plan B if Democrats don't get booted out anytime soon.

If you are 90 years old & your knee gives you pain & the cure is knee replacement, then the pain killer is likely better than the surgery. When people get old, surgery can lead to a down hill skid with infections or complications & difficult recovery times. Its a benefit vs cost analysis.
Some doctors push to the big buck treatments on our elderly when it is not the best option.
Patients need to be given honest information regarding the pluses & minuses.
Why do you have a problem with that?
Taking the task of making medical decisions out of the hands of doctors and placing it into the hands of Magic Negro Appointees sitting in a back room at the IRS is the point here, Slow Drip.

Why do you always miss the points, Mr. Clueless?

Probably intentional because you want to draw us away from the Socialist reality of the Boy Messiah's plans.

Yes, it does. But I'm quite sure these decisions have been made for quite some time - without the IRS deciding it for us and changing the age to 65 instead of 80.
They control our medical decisions now - who gets what and when they get it under the government exchanges.
But you still don't get it though. Correct?
In a Perfect World, doctors would all be honest and capable.

In a Perfect World, Congresspeople, Presidents, SCOTUS members and bureaucrats would all be honest and capable.

Liberals want to use Utopia as the carrot on the stick to draw us into believing that the Magic Negro and his IRS Brownshirts will straighten out those nasty people in the medical community.

While we're at it, let's have Law Enforcement tell the SCOTUS what to do and have have Carol King and Kanye West dictate all Congressional legislation going forward.

If we just do these simple things, we'll have a Perfect World by Monday of next week.
