Don't think I wouldn't let them on property I already own. How do you think I know about the process? There have been 57 recorded oil spills in America since March 10 1911. That's one every 651 days. There are about 40,000 miles of oil pipeline in America giving each mile of pipeline a 0.1425% chance that an oil spill will occur on any given mile of pipe every 651 days. Wow, when you put the ACTUAL numbers down, it makes you seem hypersensitive about not that big of a deal. There is a better chance of being in a fatal car accident than an oil spill occurring. You really need to stop listening to your puppet masters. They're giving you bad information and you look bad when you try to defend it.
When fuzzy math is cleared up by a conservative participant, Barney shuts up, disappears, and you can bet he's working hard to find a liberal rebuttal that he can bring back with his confused and dazed numbers to distort the truth, and ending with a "bada bing, bada boom, I sure am knocking everyone off their soap box!"
That's because he's a mature adult.

If Barney actually had a full time job with some responsibility he wouldn't be wasting all this time here on topix. He doesn't realize that he has failed to to convince one single person to change their political beliefs toward his views, however he has convinced many that he has a faulty set of values.
Barney would be better served if he would be seeking a more secure and better paying job and he might spend all that spare time he has in activities that would benefit him and his community.
The one thing about Barney that becomes obvious is that he is a taker and not a giver.

Another bad piece of news for Obamacare though I bet liberals are dancing in the streets. The CBO director Douglas Elmendorf said on Wednesday “By providing heavily subsidized health insurance to people with very low income and then lowering those subsidies as their income goes up, the act created a disincentive for people to work relative to what would have been the case in absence of the act,”. This comes on the heels of the CBO report that Obamacare will kill, not the 800,000 jobs it originally reported but rather 2.4 million jobs now that the real numbers and information are coming in. This, of course will do exactly what I said previously, which is pushing the middle class down into the lower class thus creating a two class system where the gap of income is so wide that those from the lower class have no chance of raising their standard of living so they may be in the upper class. This is of course by design. Obama has promised, on countless occassions, that he wants to give the middle class "upward mobility". Many in the middle class bought the lie and now are facing the harsh reality of their choice at the ballot box. We now have come down to a race between keeping those that are intentionally getting out of work so they will be subsidized by the government motivated enough to want to work until 2016 where they can make their voices heard and we can change this mess we are in around. That is, of course, if there is even a candidate out there that will challenge the establishment GOP and push them out of the way so REAL change can take place. Our first test will be in 2014 and the final exam will be in 2016. Hope we're ready.

OH really, what is the copyright date on this information of the 57 spills. Just how current is your information, who published it? Exxon Mobil

I can quickly find information that says 57 spills from 1911 to 2014 is incorrect.

The aftermath of a oil spill in my opinion is kind of like a bomb exploding, it only takes one to really fu*k things up and kill people.

Another thing there is a lot more vehicles than active pipelines, your analogy is absurd.

How funny is this, a new name shows up complaining about the time Barney spends posting.

Putting up a new moniker to lead people to believe you spend no time here, should have given that idea a little more thought.

To be so familiar with Barneys post would indicate you spend as much time reading his post as he does writing them.

Seems to me that makes us about even on time, does it not?

"CBO report that Obamacare will kill, not the 800,000 jobs it originally reported but rather 2.4 million jobs now that the real numbers and information are coming in"

Well lets look at at what else Mr. Elmendorf had to say about that spin the Republicans put on that;

To counter this, Van Hollen cited the report’s findings on Obamacare’s impact on labor demand, rather than supply. On page 124, the report estimates that the ACA will “boost overall demand for goods and services over the next few years because the people who will benefit from the expansion of Medicaid and from access to the exchange subsidies are predominantly in lower-income households and thus are likely to spend a considerable fraction of their additional resources on goods and services.” This, the report says,“will in turn boost demand for labor over the next few years.”
“When you boost demand for labor in this kind of economy, you actually reduce the unemployment rate, because those people who are looking for work can find more work, right?” Van Hollen asked Elmendorf.
“Yes, that’s right,” Elmendorf said.
Elmendorf added that the factor Van Hollen had identified was something CBO thinks “spurs employment and would reduce unemployment over the next few years.”

So there it is: The CBO report found the opposite of what some foes of the law claimed.
Now, it’s true that elsewhere in his testimony — when questioned by Paul Ryan — Elmendorf confirmed that the subsidies from Obamacare would reduce the incentive to

work, and that this would reduce economic growth. But as Brian Beutler explains well, for many people this incentive to work is not even necessarily a good thing, because it flows from “job lock,” i.e., they are tied to their jobs in order to have health care.

Oh I am sure that you would, but that is a moot point anyway. If the oil company wants to run a pipe line across your property, they will, regardless of your pro or con stance on the matter, and there is not a damn thing you can do to permanently prevent it.

Let's see, if Elmendorf said that the government would subsidize people out of the workforce and also said that unemployment would come down, how do you think those two things could co-exist? I don't know, maybe because there be less participants in the labor force and not more people going to work? You must have missed that connection. That's ok, I made it for you.

You're an intelligent person so I can't believe you used this as your argument. Well, I hope you will adopt this as your point of view because then you can stop defending Obama when he talks about job creation. Obama clearly wants jobs killed in this country so he can CREATE a large government dependent section and thus a permanent voting block of citizens. This is where liberals run into the hurdle they just can't clear. You see Barney, our government only is able to function by tax dollars supplied by the citizens of this country. By reducing the workforce, liberals are also reducing the amount of tax dollars our government collects thus putting more and more pressure on the middle class they boast of championing to support all the functions of our government. The middle class (soon to be lower class under this style of government) simply doesn't make that kind of money and with the bulk of the nation dependent on handouts, the government is basically shooting itself in the foot where tax revenue is concerned. If our government is to thrive and be healthy, we need as many people working and paying taxes as possible. Not because they necessarily want to work but rather because they have to in order to preserve prosperity and freedom for as many people as possible instead of just the upper 10% as happens in a socialistic government. A person making minimum wage in a free market with small government is much better off than a person making $10 per hour in a socialistic government. Either way, the rich are going to continue to be rich so we just as well drop the argument of income inequality.

This sounds eerily similar to something I've heard before...let's see...what might that be...Oh yes! I remember! The State of the Union speech where your hero in chief declared his intention to do the very same thing in any area he wants to.
See how Obama's leadership is being passed on to others?
He's quite a teacher!

Exactly correct, but sadly will be lost on Mr. Fruit Cake. He will have some sort of lame one liners and, if we are really lucky, a selective cut and paste that merits his stamp of approval...only because it tickled his ear. It might come from NBC...but it might not...depending on Barneys understanding. It may be CNN...but it may not...and the list could go on and on...of course, therein lies the folly of his tumbleweed foolishness, and why he is about as credible as his hero that he blindly follows!
