Actually, you will just need to get away from primative filthy energy. Aren't you righties the kings of greed and materialism/? Of course you are... So sit your fat pasty right wing arses down and figure a way to make your precious millions off of the clean energy problem.
Folks unlike you are worried about clean air for thier children. So the problem is not going away. So use some of that barbaric greedy competitive rightism for something useful. Make a clean energy company or invest in one.
OK come down off your horse. I've done more to my home to lower my footprint then al gore. What have you done? Just because I'm right of center I can not be green, is that it. We just made 100k (per tax) for the 1st time in 2007. But we have put 20K into our home in under 5 years to green it up. And now in obama's words "the cost of energy will skyrocket". I'm sick of the dummy liberals thinking they are the only ones that care. Are you willing to put 15k on a Vertical-axis wind turbine at your home? Have you put in over 13K into the best windows and doors you could get to lower energy use? Have you put 5K into a tankless water heat and new pumping to lower waste? Do you cook out doors year round? So please put up or shut up your just one more small minded liberal.

Given the spelling and grammer errors above, I think you should burn your voter registration card.

You are a liar. I remember when Sr Bush was president 600 people standing in line try to get a job at Walmart. You are only fooling yourself.

You fool! ILL unemployment rates were 1986-7.0-9.9, 1987 -7.0-9.9, 1988-6.0-6.9, 1989-6.0-6.9, 1990-6.0-6.9, 1991-6.0-6.9. It was not even near 5.3% and it did not drop very much.

And if you would have looked to see the rate in IL from year to year under Reagan.

End of 81 9% up 0.2%
End of 82 12.8% up 3.8%
End of 83 10.1% down 2.7%
End of 84 8.8% down 1.3%
End of 85 8.9% up 0.1%
End of 86 7.6% down 1.3%
End of 87 7.1% down 0.5%
End of 88 6.3% down 0.8%
End of 89 6.4% up 0.1%

And Bush Sr had a high of 8.7% in 92 and it was 6.5 at the end of his term.

Clinton had a high of 6.5% and a low of 4.3%. But a lot of the jobs of lower pay.

The one to top them all is Carter Started at 6.3% and in just four years it was 9.0%.

Bush Jr had a high of 6.9%(Sept 08) and a low 4.4%(2006).

One thing gets me. The media when it hit around 5% under Clinton it was to low. But, with Bush Jr it was always to high.

Ladies and Gentleman its the they may elect obama and biden into the White House.

So now is the time to get back to work for 2010. History has show one party does not rule for long in the USA. We need to move the Republican party to its roots. Less government, less sending, less taxes, and less welfare.

Once the stories come out that should have my now. A lot of the news outlets will be weaker in 2 years. We need to keep this out front about how they covered for the dimocrats and not let them do it again.

In 2 years once unemployment hit 9% to 10%, and the rate on home loans are in the low to mid teens. We need to show the following:

Pelosi and her illegal workers

Reid and his land deals

Dodd and Frank in bed with Fannie, Freddie, and the banks.

And that is just the start. We hit them on unemployment and why our home home heating bills have (to use obama's own word) SKYROCKETED under obama.

We hit them on every mis-step, every slip of the tongue. We do like they do just harder and longer. That will get us to 2010 and then obama's camp comes under fire from then to 2012.

If obama puts his wife out there to do his work, she is fair game. She hates the USA anyway. We can tear biden apart on his own record so he should not be a problem. obama was hiding him from the media for a few days already. obama will give us all we will need to take back the WH in 2012.

Obamanuts....
LOL roflol... America isnt going to let Obama in at the Whitehouse..not going to happen.
This election will be like all the rest has been, the voteing machines are allready set up for the President that is to win.
Its going to be like the last elections, a very close race.. McCain will be President by a very close margin... America isnt ready for Rev. Wright follower like Obama nor the Opra Wimpassfree religon.
America needs a President that can be like all the rest sworn in with a Holy Bible, and that will Salute the American Flag not run from it..

What's the matter, can't handle the truth? That 5.3% was not for the whole country. No one cares if you never had a hard time working, there were plenty of people out of work. Get over yourself!
