Not me. We actually have a station or two around here that still sell the old gas. For boats mostly I guess. Not close enough for me to use all the time.

Can I repeat this post since I loved it so much?

Sheila Jackson Lee was regurgitating the same old "Assad used chemical weapons on innocent children" liberal parroting when her diarrhea of the mouth spurted out all over my television screen after she said the Iraq War left an open wound on the psyche of the American people.

Saddam DIDN'T gas and massacre innocent children?

Where the hell was the Imodium when Ms. Jackson Lee's explosive diarrhea of the mouth grossed me out????

(Thank you for your patience.)

President Obama showed himself to be a brilliant statesman and tactician with Syria, Russia, the UN, the War Hawks in Congress. Keep up the good work Mr. President.

So you completely trust the CIA and the Intel now but not when they were absolutely convinced Saddam had WMDs?
The thing is, I gave the Intel a pass when it came to Saddam's WMDs because everyone including the UN knew he not only had them but used them numerous times.
He just had time to move them to Syria.
But you couldn't demonize Bush enough for "lying" in spite of the Intel and the world knowing about Saddam's WMDs, could you?
Be honest.
Not Russian...

Not France...

Not Germany...

You really ought to do your research son. Your opinions don't count as facts in the real world.

Frank & Dodd took oversight lead when they became chairmen of their respective committees in 2007. Two years later would be 2009. I have news. Housing collapse long before then, the recession started long before then & the near financial collapse happened long before then.
Paulson stated that Barney Frank was the only member of congress who possessed a clue about the housing crisis.

Note that Frank does not appear on the list of those most responsible for the mortgage crisis.

The right wing twots here are blinded by racism.

Why are you talking budget deficits when Bush ran the wars off budget?
Ok, for the very, very ignorant "special" students in the class.

Listen very closely. You may need to write this down.

A budget isn't spending you fucking moron. A budget is planned spending, idiot.
What I gave you a link to is actual spending, dufus.
The deficit is the difference between revenue and spending. Notice I didn't use the word "budget" because we're not talking about planned spending. We're talking about actual spending.

You have to be one of the most ignorant posters here.

Now that you have at least an elementary education on how the money the government spends is counted, go to that link and join the conversation about deficits and debt.

Democratic Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton said Tuesday that at the current time, the only reason she would vote in favor of an attack on Syria was out of loyalty to Barack Obama.
Appearing on radio's Bill Press Show, the non-voting delegate from the District of Columbia also said if the President actually gets the votes he needs, "it’ll be because of loyalty of Democrats. They just don’t want to see him shamed and humiliated on the national stage" (video follows with transcript and commentary):

Much along the same lines as Ed Asner tweeting "Hollywood is silent on Obama and Syria because they ‘don’t want to seem anti-black’."

Bah, and when the E-15 is out there the owner's manual will specifically caution against any fuel with more than 15 percent ethanol, right up front, large print.

The future awaits.

Why do rightwingers love their Chinese Russian Arab overlords so much but despise their fellow Americans?

The BBC should have provided some insight like Annie just did. After 50 years of progressive politicians failures things are worse for the middle class. Same story in Europe.
lol! So why don't you cite conservative successes son?


So far all you've spouted is how bad everyone else is.

Let's hear how good you idiots are for a change!!!

Putin accuses U.S. of orchestrating Georgian war
""OCHI, Russia (CNN)-- Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin has accused the United States of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia to benefit one of its presidential election candidates.
Russian PM Vladimir Putin has accused the U.S. of orchestrating the conflict in Georgia.
In an interview in the Black Sea city of Sochi on Thursday, Putin said the U.S. had encouraged Georgia to attack the autonomous region of South Ossetia.
Putin said his defense officials had told him it was done to benefit a presidential candidate -- Republican John McCain and Democrat Barack Obama are competing to succeed George W. Bush -- although he presented no evidence to back it up.
"U.S. citizens were indeed in the area in conflict," Putin said. "They were acting in implementing those orders doing as they were ordered, and the only one who can give such orders is their leader." Video Watch Putin accuse the United States »
White House spokeswoman Dana Perino blasted Putin's statements, saying they were "patently false.""
Bush got his ass spanked by Putin real bad.
Funny to see the asshats all supporting Marxist Communist Putin, ex KGB assassin.
I'll be in Sochi this winter. I'll ask Putin about that when I see him in the lodge.

You know, I just can't figure you out. You blame the extinction of the dinosaurs on Bush, then you praise Bush for helping Obama with his image and performing with him in front of the cameras, and now you're blasting him again.
Did you take your meds today?

Well, I'm so glad you knew more than the CIA and the UN back in 2003.
You should have addressed the UN with this information years before. It would have saved them all that time with all those resolutions.
Oh, and you can also thank Bush for taking down the wall Clinton built between the FBI and the CIA which the Commissioner's Report blamed partly for 9/11.
But you probably knew that too.
lol! How many times do I have to explain to you Condi Rice claimed bushie boy had them at battle stations in August 2001.

Why don't you like facts son?

The only history you know are lies.
Gulf War I was Bush I, moron. After that, there was a no fly zone for a decade.
Why didn't Reagan do anything about Saddam using chemical weapons??
Try and keep up.
Gulf War I was Saddam Hussein trying to take over all the oil fields on the Arabian peninsula, dufus.
There was no Gulf War II because Gulf War I never ended, you fucking moron.
After Saddam Hussien was thrown out of Kuwait, Clinton continually bombed him because he was in violation of all 18 UN sanctions against him.
Please try to keep up with recent history.

Like I told you so many times, moron, what's the difference between two years and one year and eight months.
The Democrats' Marxist CRA program collapsed the economy after two years (fuck you) of oversight by Democrats Dodd and Frank, during which we heard a constant stream of lies right up to the collapse.
So... when was CRA repealed son?

"Domestic violence can't be invoked because she has changed her story and says she didn't see a firearm," Bracknell said.
The dispute "was between him and his wife and her father,'' Morgan said. "There were some allegations that there had been an assault, but we could not confirm any of it.''
He said, she said...stay tuned.
