A milestone is about to be reached. In the next hour or so this thread will feature it's 1,000,000th. post. That's not counting the 75,000 or so posts that were offered but never shown.
My bet, a liberal loon will be the poster. Of course it could be so called conservative, also a loon. Maybe we will get lucky and one of the sane posters will be the one. Maybe "Galt", "killtaker", "Carol".
Just have to wait.

Follow up on Orwell's "Animal Farm":
At the book’s end, Napoleon completely eliminates the animal’s original “constitution” of The Seven Commandments. This happens one ominous day when the animal’s constitution, which was painted on the barn wall, simply disappears. In its place just one commandment is written:“ALL ANIMALS ARE EQUAL – BUT SOME ANIMALS ARE MORE EQUAL THAN OTHERS.” Obama has not officially eliminated the Constitution, but he has made significant “progress” towards that end. And while Obama portrays himself as a champion of equality for all, he has adopted the same mantra as Napoleon, which is that the ruling class (government) is “more equal” than the ruled class.
Themes from the book:
~To be free one must strenuously exercise one’s powers of reason to think through slogans, promises, and any form of ideology or propaganda.
~If one accepts being lied to, then he/she is also doomed. Acceptance of a lie, even a small lie, emboldens the liar to telthe ruling class and especially presidents and judges, decide to interpret the Constitution, and laws enacted under the Constitution, exactly opposite to the plain meaning of the words in the Constitution or laws, and the citizens allow them to get away with it, then all are living in a lawless state of existence, dependent on the whims of tyrants.

Chevron's 'pizza and soda' apology turns tragedy into farce
By Aaron Task 13 hours ago Daily Ticker
On Feb. 11, an explosion at a Chevron natural gas well in Bobtown, Pa. exploded, killing one worker. The fire burned for four days and gas and heat are still emanating from the site. The cause of the explosion remains unknown at this time and residents of Bobtown remain understandably concerned about the safety of other wells in the area.
The situation at the well "remains serious," Chevron said in a statement Tuesday.
But the oil giant is threatening to turn this very serious and tragic event into a farce with one of the worst PR moves in recent memory: In an effort to compensate the community, Chevron is giving residents of Bobtown a certificate good for one free pizza and a 2-liter bottle of soda.
To be clear, this is not a joke or a story from The Onion. The Philadelphia Daily News, CNN and various other news outlets confirm the 'pizza and a soda' apology and copies of the certificate and accompanying letter have been posted on the Web.
The letter from Chevron includes a number for a "toll-free community hotline" that rolls into a voicemail for an unidentifiable person, presumably a member of Chevron's 'Community Outreach Team', the same team presumably responsible for the "brilliant" idea of sending a certificate for pizza and a free soda to the concerned citizens of Bobtown. The Daily Ticker left a message on the voicemail and will update this story if Chevron responds.(Update: No direct reponse from Chevron as yet but the voicemail message on the 'hotline' has been changed to a more official PR response. "Your call is important to us, we will get back to you within the next 24 hours.")"
the saddest part of this story is that it wasn't Heirich Obama or you that died, sonny boy.

Shadow Government Statistics?
The irony of the entire website is that Williams takes government reported statistics to make his apocalyptic predictions, after flatly stating on many occasions that government reported numbers are "deceptive," "rigged," and "manipulated." Take a second and let that sink in, too long might give a normal person a stroke.
http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Shadow_Governmen...
Dick Morris, John Bolton, Lou Dobbs, Newt Gingrich, and Larry Kudlow? experts in lying and making the wrong call on an election, but not in economics. how about a real economist?
but if that won't work for you i totally understand.
Prove any of them are lying, you're the liar, BO is the liar.

TOLUCA, Mexico (AP)— Pressed by North American allies on an array of politically fraught issues, President Barack Obama on Wednesday vowed to press ahead with stalled efforts to expand trade agreements for the Americas into Asia and overhaul fractured U.S. immigration laws. But Obama made no promises to frustrated Canadian leaders about his long-anticipated decision on the Keystone XL pipeline.
Closing a day of talks with the leaders of Mexico and Canada, Obama said the North American partners must maintain their "competitive advantage" on trade, in part by expanding into the fast-growing Asia-Pacific region. While Obama acknowledged that "elements in my party" oppose the Trans-Pacific Partnership deal, he disputed the notion that Democratic concerns would derail the agreement.

If you right whiners are so interested in "buy American" quit supporting Republicans who continue to support tax breaks for taking jobs overseas.
Right now, Corporations are not taxed on profits earned outside the country until they bring those profits back to the US. So they don't bring it back & invest further in overseas operations. Romney's solution was to make all overseas profits tax free ( great plan masking it more profitable to invest outside the US)
You're an idiot, Romney..........aw never mind, you're too stupid
