Please explain who gets paid for the oil, where is it of any use to the U.S. if it is sold. Since all this is coming from the U.S.and should be part of what is our National Resources , does all this selling benefit the people? Or any but the rich the Democrats say the Repubs love so much, So all this is BULL CrAP>

News Article:
Psychiatrist says leftists are mentally ill

Based on thousands of cases!

“Based on strikingly irrational beliefs and emotions, modern liberals relentlessly undermine the most important principles on which our freedoms were founded,” says Rossiter.“Like spoiled, angry children, they rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood and demand that a parental government meet their needs from cradle to grave.”

“A social scientist who understands human nature will not dismiss the vital roles of free choice, voluntary cooperation and moral integrity – as liberals do,” he says.“A political leader who understands human nature will not ignore individual differences in talent, drive, personal appeal and work ethic, and then try to impose economic and social equality on the population – as liberals do. And a legislator who understands human nature will not create an environment of rules which over-regulates and overtaxes the nation’s citizens, corrupts their character and reduces them to wards of the state – as liberals do.”
Rossiter says the liberal agenda preys on weakness and feelings of inferiority in the population by:
•creating and reinforcing perceptions of victimization;
•satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence and compensation;
•augmenting primitive feelings of envy;
•rejecting the sovereignty of the individual, subordinating him to the will of the government.

“The roots of liberalism – and its associated madness – can be clearly identified by understanding how children develop from infancy to adulthood and how distorted development produces the irrational beliefs of the liberal mind,” he says.“When the modern liberal mind whines about imaginary victims, rages against imaginary villains and seeks above all else to run the lives of persons competent to run their own lives, the neurosis of the liberal mind becomes painfully obvious.”

If Repubs had their way there would be no minimum wage. Everyone would work for the .30 cents an hour like American companies pay in China. Want proof?

You guys are right about the minimum wage..

Stop Complaining Republicans, the Minimum Wage Should be $22.62 an Hour

Welfare, as it relates to the security of a population, is said to be the provision of a minimal level of well-being and social support for all citizens, and in the United States Constitution it is mentioned as “general welfare of the people” in the Preamble and the Taxing and Spending Clause. The Constitution grants power to the government to enact laws to promote the general welfare of the people, and in America it is the basis for legislation promoting the health, safety, and well-being of the people. It is a sad fact of life, but because of the evil inherent in some people, particularly the rich and powerful, there are times when this government has had to enact laws and regulations to protect the general welfare of the people and each time Republicans opposed protecting the people to defend the rich and powerful.

Up until 1938, there were no general welfare protections for working Americans, and that year President Franklin D. Roosevelt sent a bill to Congress along with a message declaring that America should provide its workforce with “a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work.” The aptly named Fair Labor Standards Act was Roosevelt’s idea of fairness that established the minimum wage and was based on a popular notion that “No business which depends for existence on paying less than living wages to its workers has any right to continue in this country.” That sentiment was popular before 1938 and is still a prevalent sentiment today, but since government serves the greed of the wealthy, Americans are destined for poverty.

Today, because the wealthy wield absolute veto power over the government’s obligation to provide for the people’s general welfare and protect the labor force, the people must fend for themselves for protection from predatory capitalists paying substantially less than a living wage. The result has been workers at less-than-living wage jobs have begun protesting against poverty wages and demanding “a fair day’s pay for a fair day’s work” in a reiteration of Roosevelt’s idea of fairness in the workplace. The idea of fairness has never really caught on in America, but there is no greater indicator of this nation’s gross inequity than income inequality heavily favoring the rich.

In recent research compiled by the New York times, it was revealed that if the “federal minimum wage had kept pace with the earnings of the richest one-percent of income earners,” the hourly minimum wage would be $22.62 and would lift tens-of-millions of Americans out of poverty. The $22.62 figure is based on the richest one-percent’s earning rate that increased 212% over the past 20 years, and is in stark contrast to the $7.25 per hour minimum that is lower than poverty wages in 1982. The outrage is that employee productivity has more than doubled since then, and it increased by 25% from 2000 to 2012 alone. The NYT report cited that if minimum wage kept pace with worker productivity, the minimum wage would have been $21.72 last year, but instead workers have watched their earnings decline as their productivity increased.

CONtinued:

A few months ago President Obama supported a minimum wage of $10 an hour that would lift 3.8 million Americans out of poverty, and some Democrats have introduced legislation to raise the wage floor to keep pace with inflation, but the richest Americans vetoed wage hike discussions through their legislative arm the Republican Party. As usual, Republicans who are wont to claim they speak for all Americans say the people oppose higher wages, but poll after poll after survey of Americans, even Republicans, show overwhelming majorities support raising the minimum wage.

Republicans have been at the forefront of legislative obstruction and inaction that resulted in inflation-adjusted minimum wage declines in both absolute and relative terms. All the while, the richest one-percent celebrated a 212% earnings increase because Republicans protect their general welfare at the expense of the workforce.

One family in the richest one percent, the Walton family (Walmart), holds more wealth than the bottom 40% of the population combined and are well aware that their 1.3 million employees are struggling to survive. To keep them in poverty but still able to work, they have left it to the taxpayers to provide $9,000 annually in food stamp and Medicaid costs for each of their underpaid employees. The nation’s largest fast food chain, McDonalds, provided their workers with a budget based on “McMinimum” wages that left no money each month for extravagances such as food or heating; they do however offer their workers assistance to apply for food stamps and Medicaid.

The income inequality in America is unprecedented, and besides creating a hungry and sick population mired in poverty, it contributes to the nation’s debt and economic malaise. If millions of poverty wage workers’ had kept pace with the one percent that saw their earnings increase by 212%, their buying power would boost the economy and the nation’s revenue from taxes. It would also drastically reduce the necessity of government assistance in the form of food stamps and healthcare for 47.8 million Americans drowning in poverty. Unfortunately for American workers, their fortunes will never change because their government’s ability to promote all the people’s general welfare was neutered by Republicans in 1982; about the time wages began declining.

It is no small coincidence that the government’s power to promote the people’s general welfare coincided with Ronald Reagan’s assertion that government is inherently evil and the source of the people’s problems. Once Reagan convinced Americans that government regulations prevented them from thriving economically, Republicans began their deregulatory frenzy that continues unabated today. It is also no coincidence that as the one-percent has increased their wealth, Republicans increased their assault on workers, wages, unions, overtime pay, and recently, unemployment benefits that all contribute to the economic plight of most American workers in GOP’s class war.

Republicans began plotting their war on workers after FDR enacted the Fair Labor Standards Act, and their 75 year campaign to return America to 1937 is nearing fruition. Instead of raising the minimum wage, Republicans proposed eliminating it altogether with valuable assistance from the Koch brothers and their legislative template machine ALEC. Eliminate minimum wages, abolish child labor laws, end overtime pay and the 40-hour work week, eviscerate workplace safety regulations, and end unemployment benefits are all part of a plan to enrich the one-percent’s wealth at the expense of the labor force.

The conservative class war is nearly at its pitiful end, and government at the mercy of the rich is powerless to protect the people or promote their general welfare. The result will be precisely what Charles and David Koch promised the one-percent at a 2010 millionaire strategy meeting if they each handed over at least a million dollars to complete their vision for a transformed America. Their vision was unrestricted prosperity for the “wealthy class” while keeping the poor productive and content. The poor may not be content, but they are producing unrestricted prosperity for the rich and they will never see better wages.

GOP debunked on food stamps: Everything they say about SNAP is wrong

Forget the nonsense about them breeding dependency. Food stamps increase self-sufficiency, research shows

Hilary Hoynes is a University of California at Berkeley economist who wrote a particularly notable paper last year. Instead of increasing dependency, as conservative critics have repeatedly claimed, Hoyen’s paper showed that, for women at least, food stamp use during pregnancy and early childhood has exactly the opposite impact of what conservatives allege: It actually increases economic self-sufficiency when children grow up, in the next generation.

That was just one of two main results reported in “Long Run Impacts of Childhood Access to the Safety Net,” which Hoynes co-authored with Diane Whitmore Schanzenbach and Douglas Almond. As stated in the paper’s abstract, access to food stamps for women leads to “increases in economic self-sufficiency (increases in educational attainment, earnings, and income, and decreases in welfare participation).” Hoynes and her colleagues took advantage of the fact that food stamp programs were established county-by-county over a period of years, creating a sort of “natural experiment” beginning half a century in the past.

With all that data out there, and researchers like Hoynes starting to make sense of it, one has to ask if it isn’t time for a reality-based political movement to start using what they’re learned to shape a better future.

It might seem like a pipe dream now. But it was actually more or less like that before Gingrich “reformed” the House. As late as 1992, authors Fay Lomax Cook and Edith J. Barrett found strong support for the welfare state and its programs, despite negative views of welfare in their highly detailed survey, Support for the American Welfare State: The Views of Congress and the Public. One key factor in Congress was that Republicans in committee leadership positions, who were much more familiar with how programs worked, showed significantly more support than Republicans as a whole. That was how things were before Gingrich went to work. It’s a good indication of what Speaker Pelosi should have undone when she held power from 2007 to 2011. The next time Democrats do gain control of the House, they will need to prioritize making it friendly to the likes of Hilary Hoynes and her reality-based colleagues.

It’s the only way, ultimately, to make it friendly to all the rest of us as well.

Obama:'We're not going back'

President Obama declared Tuesday that ObamaCare "is working" and that "we're not going back," as the White House looked to reboot its efforts to sell Americans on the president's signature healthcare law.

"Obama said that "poor execution" of the rollout of HealthCare.gov had "clouded" the benefits of the bill but said he would not allow technical glitches to undermine a program that was providing financial security for many Americans.

"If I've got to fight another three years to make sure this law works, that's what we'll do," Obama said.

"We're not repealing it as long as I'm president," he added. "I want everybody to be clear about that. We'll make it work."

The president also chastised critics of the law, saying Republicans "haven't presented an alternative" that would address flaws of the pre-ObamaCare system. He singled out Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), saying the Republican leader "refused to answer" when asked what his alternate proposal was.

"He just repeated 'repeal' over and over and over again," Obama said.

Earlier Tuesday, McConnell said the president's "campaign-style event wouldn’t solve the myriad problems facing consumers under ObamaCare."

“The American people have been learning about the impact ObamaCare will have on individuals and families in the form of higher premiums, disrupted insurance, and lost jobs — more broken promises from the administration. And they’re becoming increasingly aware of the fact ObamaCare is broken beyond repair," McConnell said.

McConnell Challenger, Matt Bevin, Scoffs at Chamber of Commerce Ad

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce may be helping Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell with a television ad launched today that touts the Kentucky senator, but his opponent Matt Bevin says the business organization has an interest in keeping establishment lawmakers like McConnell in office.

“There are a lot of interests that have a very vested interest in preserving the status quo. There are people who have the wheels greased the way they want them, they know how things operate and they like it that way and there is a lot of risks associated with disrupting the status quo,” Bevin said Tuesday in an interview.“Many people who are in a position to influence things are using their prerogative to step in and try to keep it the same way.”

Bevin said he “firmly believes” if ”we don’t start to change the people we send to Washington” voters can’t expect change.

“You keep doing the same thing, electing the same people, and expect different results,” Bevin, who spoke to ABC News on a visit to Washington, said.“It is a fool’s game for us to believe that we are going to elect the same people over and over, the same people …[who have] been complicit in, and in some cases directly involved in creating the very problems, but now they are going to be the ones who are going to come up with the solution.”

The Chamber of Commerce’s 30-second television ad starts running today for 10 days in Kentucky, and it says McConnell will protect the important coal industry in the state.

Bevin’s argument is almost identical to the one pushed by the Democratic Senate candidate, Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes. Soon after the shutdown she put out an online ad with a narrator saying,“Mitch McConnell can’t light the house on fire and then take credit for putting it out, especially when it’s still burning” over footage of a home engulfed in flames.

When asked about the similarity, Bevin said he has not “really been paying attention” to Grimes’“arguments, but if she makes that point then I would say in that instance maybe she’s on to something.”

“They just want to know that if they jump out of the pan they are not going to land right in the fire,” said Bevin, and as for how nasty and personal the race has already become, he said McConnell is “becoming a caricature of what he should be as a U.S. senator and that is a shame, it really is a shame because he has brought it to a level that is beneath the dignity of the office he holds.”

McConnell’s campaign spokesperson Allison Moore responded to Bevin’s interview with a statement saying,“Matt Bevin’s sharp pivot back towards his centrist views was inevitable given that Kentucky voters found his makeover as a firebrand no-compromise conservative as believable as his MIT diploma. Watching Matt tack from one ideological position to the opposite is a sad example of a candidate searching desperately to justify his candidacy.”

Bevin and McConnell will face off in the Kentucky Senate primary on May 20th. The winner will go on to face Grimes in November.
