The Magic Racist is a small elite aside from all the other derogatory things he is.
Did someone on here say Obama was the "first African-American" who was "clean" and "articulate" to run for office?

No, actually that was Joe Biden.

(At least he called Obama an African-American instead of a Negro like Reid did.)

I didn't say it did-did I?

Again just because you work at a job that receives government money does not exclude you from criticizing it.

Wouldn't that be Communism?

No one.
Can't you f*cking read?
They are arguing against major restructuring & more oversight.
Dumbass Dave is so jaded that he can look at the negative in such a positive thing, and then post swear words to defend the stupidity of his statement, enjoy your life if it's possible...

I keep telling you I'm not a farmer. I work in the oil field. There is no such thing as a subsidy paid to any American oil company.
Or, show me the subsidy. So far, you talk about them, but you can't find any proof they exist.
Now, back to the post you ran away from:
So-called "poor" people are "poor" by choice.
Fk'em. Work or starve. Want more? Make yourself worth more. You're worthless because of the personal choices you made.
GFY
Work or starve.
"In the United States, credible estimates of annual fossil fuel subsidies range from $14 billion to $52 billion annually, while even efforts to remove small portions of those subsidies have been defeated in Congress."

We defend pipelines and shipping lanes in the Persian Gulf. That is a subsidy.

If the End Polluter Welfare Act (EPWA), S. 3080, had been enacted, "the legislation would have eliminated more than $110 billion in US taypayer subsidies to the fossil fuel industry over ten years."

“The End Polluter Welfare Act would have ended all tax breaks, special financing arrangements, and federal research and development funding. Never again would a company like BP take a tax deduction for money spent cleaning up its own mess in the Gulf of Mexico, and it would have closed the loophole that lets tar sands oil pipeline operators avoid paying the oil spill cleanup tax.”

"According to the fact sheet accompanying the text of the legislation, fossil fuels are subsidized at nearly 6 times the rate of renewable energy. From 2002-2008, the US Government gave the mature fossil fuel industry over $72 billion in subsidies, while investments in the emerging renewable industry totaled $12.2 billion. Unlike renewable energy incentives, which periodically expire and require Congress to approve extensions, the fossil fuel industry has dozens of subsidies permanently ingrained in the tax code from decades of successful lobbying."

The bill would have excluded any taxpayer that is in the trade or business of the production, refining, processing, transportation, or distribution of oil, natural gas, from the Last-in, First-out method of inventory oil, natural gas, and coal companies.

The bill would have denied the deduction for removal costs and damages for certain oil spills.

The bill would have taxed crude oil and natural gas produced from the outer continental shelf in the Gulf of Mexico.

The bill would have created a uniform seven-year amortization for geological and geophysical expenditures.

The bill would have ended... the "enhanced oil recovery CREDIT"; the CREDIT for producing oil and natural gas from marginal wells); the CREDIT for producing fuel from a nonconventional source; Limited the special rule for taxpayers with oil related qualified production activities income; ended the special rule for spudding of oil or natural gas wells; limited percentage of depletion in case of oil and natural gas wells; ended the deduction and recapture of certain mining exploration expenditures; ended the deduction for capital costs incurred in complying with Environmental Protection Agency sulfur regulations; limited the special rules for mining and solid waste reclamation and closing costs); Ended the 5-Year Carryback for Marginal Oil and Natural Gas Well Production CREDIT; Ended the CREDIT for Carbon Dioxide Sequestration; Limited the deduction for income attributable to domestic production of oil and gas by EXCLUDING gross receipts from the production, refining, processing, transportation, or distribution of oil, natural gas, or coal, or any primary product; etc., etc, etc,

Of course it does. I seriously doubt the poster would be accusing Bush of supporting a "terrorist" for doing the same thing Obama is doing. You people are well documented hypocrites.
You need to let go of your stereotypes.

Mandela was a terrorist and was even on US terrorist list but apparently the presidents have chosen to overlook this for what he did later in life.

The Golf shoes in the Oval Office could have been a clue... and... According to Reggie Love Obama bin Lyin played Spades during the bin Laden raid...

Bush flew fighter jets... Obama bin Lyin drives golf carts and relies on teleprompters... See the difference?

Lily makes you look th eidiot you are, and you hate her for it.
You still haven't provided any evidence of her racism, as I just did with Laney's racist comment.
Show the proof or admit Lily has you whipped into a hateful emotional breakdown!!
I have repeatedly and you keep denying.

What Progressive sites? What is twitter? complex.

The day lily stops tossing racist around at anyone she disagrees with then I will re-evaluate my opinion. Until then she is acting as a racist.
