You still haven't been able to find evidence thos subsidies exist, have you?
Show me the subsidy.
Subsidies to oil companies is an urban legend. They don't exist. There are no subsidies paid to oil companies in the United States. It's all a propaganda lie.
Or....
Show me the subsidy.
I posted what they were.

I also posted a slew of people in Congress who said they did exist Congress debated eliminating these subsidies & your hero Paul Ryan said they existed. Are you calling all these people liars?

I understand that it must be embarrassing for someone like you to admit you an't make it on your own.

the rest of it...or rather, the part you need to ignore.

The publicís view of the Republican Party has reached another all-time low in the survey, with 22 percent seeing the GOP in a positive light and 53 percent viewing it negatively;

http://firstread.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/10/30...

so Obama's approval rating is almost twice what it is for the GOP.

so please, continue.

You know what? You go ahead and think this president has been honest with the American people. That his endless promises to get to the bottom of things and the allegations of wrongdoing weren't swept under the rug and, once forgotten, weren't called phony allegations. That his endless promises about Obamacare haven't been proven to be lies and that Obamacare wasn't a failure since its conception. That he's stood up to the plate and taken responsibility on behalf of us and the country. That he doesn't protect himself and his party first. That he is an absentee president and no one knows who is in charge in the WH.
So if it makes you feel better to believe whatever it is you want to see, feel free to do that.
Just don't try to convince the rest of us to join your ship of fools who see the obvious and know otherwise.
Carol, I deal in facts logic and actual evidence unlike you who deals in unfounded allegations and outright lies formed in your ignorant, hate filled mind.
I really feel sorry for you.

And the American public is particularly mad -- at everyone -- after the government shutdown.

By a 41 percent-to-21 percent margin, respondents say they have a less favorable impression of President Obama after the shutdown rather than a more favorable one.

Ditto congressional Tea Party Republicans (45 percent to 12 percent) and congressional Republicans (53 percent to 9 percent).

Still, more Americans blame congressional Republicans for the shutdown (38 percent) than Obama (23 percent), while 36 percent say they blame both sides equally.

Covered California makes it tough to find, but the same two people, with only "moderate" medical needs, would pay $1500-1600 for a gold plan (80% coverage, like basic Medicare) and $1800-2000 for a platinum plan (90% coverage).
Most employer-sponsored group plans provide at least platinum level coverage.
The point is that ObamaKKKare is very expensive insurance except for those on welfare.
More bullsht, err misinformation from Galt.

Once again pal most=one more than 50%.

Oh and these wild azz guess costs of yours do not reflect any subsidy__do they? It's my guess that "most" early 60's couples who earn $80,000 plus already have suitable health insurance through their employer or by way of a private plan.

You continue to ignore that all things equal__private plans were much costlier than group plans. The ACA works towards correcting that disparity.

Obamaís Approval Rating Hits Record Low in WSJ/NBC Poll
Just 42 percent of those surveyed in the latest Wall Street Journal/NBC poll approve of the job President Barack Obamaís doing, the lowest theyíve found since they began measuring his favorability in 2008. Thatís down from 47 percent in a poll taken at the beginning of October; the presidentís unfavorable rating ticked up from 48 percent to 51 (his high point was in April 2009).
The numbers donít look good for his signature legislative achievement, either: A combined 56 percent of Americans say it should be repealed or completely overhauled.
Obama's approval rating is still higher than the Republican party. He's not ever running for office again, they might as well not either.

Oh goody! The old WMD went to Syria fantasy. Here's where it falls apart nitwit.
Syria was a staunch ally of Iran, Iraq's archenemy. Why would Saddam sent them there? Why didn't he use them himself? He had his back up against the wall and had nothing to lose by using them.
Another fact is that chemical weapons and even their precursor components don't have a long shelf life and they would have degraded to the point of uselessness in the ten years that have elapsed. Syria got its components on the open market. The chemicals used for nerve gas are the same as used in commercial pesticides.
You're an idiot!
Unfamiliar with the "birds of a feather phenom" eh Dupont?

Try this--next nice, half way sunny day-check out some of your local trees. Watch patiently for awhile, and you might get to actually see the phenom in action.
At first it may look like just a bunch of old birds flying around-but if you look close ebough you'll see...eventually one will jump to the head of the fly pack, pointing the way for the others!!!

And here-have a box of rabbit turds while you're watching!
