How about you look into the sources Paul Ryan used and tell us what you find. You might find out that even Paul Ryan was surprised to discover they don't exist. Anyway, you, "you" being the idiot posting this bullshit, still haven't identified any subsidies paid to oil companies.
Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist.
Or, you can identify these mythical subsidies, which you will post your proof that these ghost subsidies actually exist.
Like I say to the television when one of those ghosts-are-real shows are on, show me the ghost.
You can lie. You can run. But your lies all catch up with you.

Rmoney promised to protect Oil Subsidies!!

Looks like you're the 'urban legend' around here, spreading bullshit throughout the day.

When you arrived, you were a motorcycle mechanic. Within months, you claimed to have multiple specialties in the oil industry.

Lies, all of it.

Just as you no longer speak as "Sarge", since Ghost busted you on your lack of knowledge concerning eqipment used during Vietnam.

You still haven't shown us any proof those mythical subsidies to oil companies exist, and you still haven't shown us those, how many did you say, 94 precedents of the president having the power of a dictator and ignoring the Constitution and raising the debt ceiling without a bill having been passed in Congress.

Now, back to the issue you run away from. You said there was precedent for the president to ignore the Constitution and Congress and raise the debt ceiling on his own authority as if he's some kind of a dictator. I think they number you threw out there was 94 precedents.
First, show us the text in the Constitution that defines who has the authority to borrow money in the government. Then, put your bullshit out there about those precedents again.
I'll just get me some popcorn to watch this.
You get crazier by the minute. But this time, I've got you trapped in your own lies.

I never said there was a precedent for any President to raise the debt ceiling on his own. Here's the post that proves it.

You're just a lying sack of Texas trash!!

Here's the exchange, proving you the liar we all know you are:

If there isn't any money to appropriate, there isn't any money to spend.
The debt ceiling is law. Ultimately, Congress has to raise the debt ceiling to have the money to appropriate.
There is no precedent for spending money that doesn't exist.
There is no precedent for the government spending money that was not authorized by Congress.
There is no precedent for the government violating the law defining the debt ceiling.
The problem is, the people don't like the Marxist programs the Democrats are pushing. The GoP in the House is doing exactly what they should do. They are representing the people and rejecting the Democrats' Marxist communist agenda.
Now, where will the money come from to pay for Obama's government?

Ah, the Putin loving Commie midget returns with more ignorance.

I see your inbred stupidity remains intact.

So if there is no precedent, how is it that the debt ceiling has been raised 94 times since 1944??

Do you ever think before typing your stupid messages??

As anyone with a functioning brain can see, there are 94 precedents, dating to 1944.

Where did the money come from to pay for;

Roosevelt's Gov't??

Or Truman's Gov't??

Or Eisenhower's Gov't??

Or Kennedy's Gov't??

Or Johnson's Gov't??

Or Nixon's Gov't??

Or Ford's Gov't??

Or Carter's Gov't??

Or Reagan's Gov't??

Or Bush I's Gov't??

Or Clinton's Gov't??

Or Bush II's Gov't??

Come back when you find a brain capable of discussing issues with adults, not your Communist Birfer buddies.

----------

As I said, there are 94 precedents for raising the debt ceiling. Since 1944. So if there is no money, why has the debt ceilling been raised 94 times??

the reason for raising the debt ceiling is precisely because there isn't enough money to fund Govt!!

My God, you're even more stupid than Ed and Waxturd's posse!!

Debt ceiling was raised 18 times when Raygun was President.

Debt ceiling was raised 7 times when Dubya was President.

All you do is come here and lie, hoping noone will find th eposts that you told so many lies in.

But this time, I gotcha!! BWAHAHAHAHAHAHHA

Check and Checkmate.

That popcorn tastes pretty crappy after you and your stupidity were debunked, eh nitwit?

Did someone say Oil Subsidies??

""A 2011 study by the consulting firm Management Information Services, Inc.(MISI)[7] estimated the total historical federal SUBSIDIES for various energy sources over the years 1950-2010. The study found that oil, natural gas, and coal received $369 billion,$121 billion, and $104 billion (2010 dollars), respectively, or 70% of total energy SUBSIDIES over that period. Oil, natural gas, and coal benefitted most from percentage depletion allowances and other tax-based SUBSIDIES, but oil also benefitted heavily from regulatory SUBSIDIES such as exemptions from price controls and higher-than-average rates of return allowed on oil pipelines.""

""House GOP Blocks Vote On Oil Subsidies""

""Republicans on Thursday unanimously voted down a motion from Democrats to consider legislation to end subsidies to oil companies.

Democrats sought to attach the measure, which failed in a 241-171 vote that saw seven Democrats defect, to a bill that would allow oil companies to more easily secure drilling permits off the Gulf Coast. That bill passed.

Speaker Boehner suggested in an interview with ABC last month that he was open to ending oil subsidies, prompting calls from the White House on down to quickly pass legislation doing so.

A number of Republicans, such as Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), have suggested that oil subsidies and other corporate tax breaks could be eliminated as part of a broader tax reform package but there has been less appetite for a standalone bill targeting the industry.""

Well, isn't that just what we all want though? A president "puttin the smackdown" on the opposition?

Because I know we'd both want a President Romney to be "puttin the smackdown" on those political terrorists called Democrats.

That's for darn sure.

I mean, who would they think they are wanting to be part of the political system - the way it's always been done - even if His Highness Romney had taken over the White House?

Smack 'em down. That's what I say. Smack 'em down hard too.

""In 2005, President George W. Bush, a former oilman, explained that the profit potential in the oil industry drives exploration, not the subsidies:“With $55 oil we don’t need incentives to the oil and gas companies to explore. There are plenty of incentives.”
Bush added,“What we need is to put a strategy in place that will help this country over time become less dependent.” Okay, he opposed such a strategy all his life, and he was never going need Big Oil to help him run for office again, but still.
The GOP Speaker of the House just had an equally rare moment of candor on oil subsidies, but it didn’t last long, as Brad Johnson reports (with video):

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) has conceded that their multi-billion-dollar subsidies should be on the negotiating table. Under tenacious questioning by ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl about “obscene” oil industry profits and $4 gas, Boehner admitted that oil companies have “some part of this to blame.”“I don’t think the big oil companies need to have the oil depletion allowances,” he said, which is a nearly $1 billion annual subsidy, part of the $4 billion in subsidies identified by President Obama. In the interview, Boehner recognized that oil companies are not “paying their fair share”:
It’s certainly something we should be looking at. We’re in a time when the federal government’s short on revenues. We need to control spending but we need to have revenues to keep the government going. They ought to be paying their fair share.""
