See what I mean from post #19943?
From my posts, Canton has NO good idea as to my party affiliation, whether or not I have any sort of trust fund, false teeth, wear diapers, drive a truck, ride a hover round, my personal race or if I am a racist to any degree, white, black, Asian, bi-racial or even my accurate age.
The funniest part is that ALL of this is true & that Canton is totally clueless. Again, ROFLMAO
I do also KNOW this tho, people that resort to repetitive name calling & or make baseless claims have NO logical position to voice. So their words are also baseless. How could one knowing that become 'mean' about that?
Yes, I'm so clueless to call a guy who voted Republican his entire life, a Republican. Once again. Can't blame you guys for being ashamed of what you stand for. You can call white Rightwing Conservative Republicans the Tea Party, Libertarians, Constitutionalists or the tooth fairy for all I care. Just don't believe for a second that I, or the majority of voting Americans are buying it. We all know you guys are just covering your tracks that lead right to GW Bush.

<quoted text>XXX said NOTHING about getting rid of unions, only their affect on jobs & the economy.
The Obama admin HAS affected the entire economy by chasing more jobs over seas & NOT coming even close to getting unemployment under 6 or 7% as PROMISED!! How about cutting the deficit in 1/2 in 1 term? How about NO tax increases? How about "pay as we go"?
I have seen NO racist comments by XXX.
Unfounded wars? We are out of Iraq but that was on the schedule already. Obama has us entwined insecurely with Libya, Egypt & Syria right now & was the driver of the 30,000 'surge'. Only to mention the Fast & Furious. He also PROMISED to close Gitmo.
Jesus for crude oil?? What the bleep does that mean?
Then there's his promise that Obama Care would reduce premiums overall medical costs. What a laughable so called promise. Unions, the Senate & Congress are exempted among others. The Amish are exempt for reasons of religious beliefs but he goes after Catholics!
He butts into the Harvard prof episode denigrating the police force & Trayvon Martin case on the 1st or 2nd day right out of the gate before knowing squat of facts.
He played more golf in his 1st term than Bush played in 2 terms.
Many people (you included) keep playing the race card about Obama when he is 50% white, 50% black so what is with that??
Obama doesn't even know how to spell transparency let alone practice it.
You need to stay away from Agent Orange. I am so happy to NOT be a part of your family tree. That could be my birthday present from now until forever!
I wish I could say you are just playing stupid, but then, you aren't playing.

You won't find many conservatives embarrassed about calling themselves conservative. How did we arrive at Progressives? Liberal had negative connotations to it, so they changed it from liberal to Progressive. Same thing with Global Warming. What happened to that? Well after it was learned the reverse was happening, they decided to call it Climate Change.

Democrats could never run on what they really believe or what they want to do; larger government, cradle-to-grave society, bringing the wealthy down while making the poor even poorer. Who would vote for that? Well..... you perhaps. But conservatives hide nothing from the public about who we are or what we believe.

Shut up old fool. Go put your Sunday teeth in when you ramble your paranoid visions of me caring about your judge icons. Believe it or not, it is a fact that the majority of Americans agree with me and not your kookie little Tea Party, so it could have been anyone. You and your beliefs are still just an adult diaper, stuck to the wheel of a Hoveround to me and the majority of hard working Americans. Get out of the way, old clown, racist trust fund boy and corporate fetch boy truck driver. The big boys have a country to put back together after you voted in the worst president in history...twice.
Oh please. When it comes to the worst President, it's you that voted for him twice and he's still trying to ruin this once great country.

Yeah, you have a country to put back together, that's why your Socialist gave Racist Holder a pass so he didn't have to testify what Fast and Furious was about. He gave out waivers to hundreds of companies so they didn't have to suffer the effects of Commie Care. But now that Commie Care is here to stay, he put off the employer mandate and minimum insurance company charges UNITL AFTER THE ELECTION! If Commie Care is so great, why not let the whole thing start right on schedule? We Republicans would welcome that.

Speaking of which, where did this Communist get the idea that the President has the authority to change or manipulate law without going through Congress--that he alone has that ability?

Well what should one expect from an anti-American like DumBama that was supported by the US Communist party during both his elections?

Right...where you are an all American, flag waving Patriot when you talk about getting rid of Unions. Who else likes to break up the Unions and trample workers rights? That's right. Now I remember. You and Communist China agree whole heartedly when it comes to not supporting the working man. The bottom line is the Obama administration hasn't hurt the way you were living one speck. You are unable to admit just how absolutely abysmal this country was under GW Bush. You and your camp flitter back and forth, desperately grasping at any sky is falling, emailed whack-job Tea Bagger conspiracy they dish out to you. Making yourself more and more invalid with every fake scandal and obstructionist ploy, all in the hopes that you can make the black man in the Whitehouse seem like an ineffective President. You gleefully watch your religion and your values whored out to a corporate, while at the same time, blurting out your greed based hatred of the poor in this country. All awhile, the majority of Americans outside your Fox News bubble become sicker and sicker of your anti-American views, and your racist based unwillingness to try to make this country a better place. You guys dragged America down with your ignorance for 8 years of unfounded wars, hidden torture camps, and Jesus for crude oil sales pitches. Good luck EVER being viewed as anything but a kookie, doomsday Bible bunker, Red Scare 2.0, Tea Bagging fringe group. You guys earned it.
We also earned the turnover of Congressional leadership from Democrat to Republican and held on to that leadership the following election. This on top of the multiple state representatives and Republican Governors that took control. Maybe people are starting to wake up! Maybe they are starting to ask What does Detroit, Cleveland, California and other failed government entities have in common? Democrats.

Don't tell me DumBama hasn't hurt me. He's hurt most Americans. My employer had to cut our healthcare benefits because Commie Care drove his premiums up so high that he couldn't afford them any longer. Our electricity rates are going to increase because of the closing of coal fired power plants and government regulations that the remaining ones allowed to stay open invest millions of dollars towards clean energy. His minions interrupted our business by placing thousands of dollars in fines for drivers caught talking on their Nextel with their dispatcher. Even my cigarettes nearly doubled in price because of this Mulatto. And what did he do with that new money? He funded healthcare for families making up to $80,000 per year. And what about all those full-time workers being cut down to part-time so their employer can escape Commie Care regulations? Those people aren't hurting?

The list goes on and on, but you dare to compare this total incompetent to George W Bush. Talk about blinders.

Very true, and because of that shortage, we have a lot of foreigners getting into the business, so next time you see a container truck or flatbed behind you, ask yourself if you're comfortable with a foreigner that can't even read our road signs behind you?

The word "liberal" has been demonized by the right. Most conservatives now have no idea what it means, just that they are the enemy, and responsible for everything bad in our society. Liberal ideas are at the heart of libertarianism.

Here are the origins of liberal thought: "From the 17th century until the 19th century, liberals—from Adam Smith to John Stuart Mill—conceptualized liberty as the absence of interference from government and from other individuals, claiming that all people should have the freedom to develop their own unique abilities and capacities without being sabotaged by others. Mill's On Liberty (1859), one of the classic texts in liberal philosophy, proclaimed that "the only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way"."

I think that it can be argued that the word liberal has morphed to some degree just as some words can do over time by a change in usage.

As I have pointed out here on TOPIX time & again, those who currently call themselves "liberals" are ill liberal & are anything but liberal. Actually they favor STATISM, which is the opposite of liberalism!

Definition of STATISM:
: concentration of economic controls and planning in the hands of a highly centralized government often extending to government ownership of industry

You probably also believe that WE don't have a spending problem, WE have a 'failure to pay for' problem. Or that taxes have not been raised, that has been 'revenue enhancement'. You probaly believe that 'Stimulus Spending' or 'Quantitative Easing' had no affect on the debt too.
You are funnier than a Missouri State Fair Rodeo Clown !!

Yes. But, in the last 25 years, attitudes in our country have taken a very hard turn to the right. Imagine a President today that would create a new government agency to deal with environmental problems ... and then create another government agency that would enforce new workplace safety laws ... and then (for good measure)institute wage and price controls. The craziest "liberal" would never try any of that now. But Richard Nixon did all those things, and he was a very conservative Republican. Right now his actions would be too "liberal", even for the Democratic party.

You'll have to forgive Canton. He gets like this when global warming disappears and he needs a jacket in the middle of August. Let me see if I can help as I thought of this looking at the weather forecast this morning:

DON'T WORRY CANTON, GLOBAL WARMING IS COMING BACK! Just look at evil Fox 8 weather forecast:

http://fox8.com/weather/forecast/

If you don't have time to click the link during your busy day, here is an excerpt:

"We had a 9 days stretch of temps above 80 in the middle of July. If the 8day forecast holds, we could see a weeks worth of 80+ warmth!

Provided by Scott Sabol: By the way, I ran the numbers for the ENTIRE SUMMER starting on June 1st. Believe it or not, this summer is NEAR AVERAGE compared to all of the summers since 1983. 18 summers since 1983 have been COOLER than this summer"

Feel better now that the "Invisible man in the sky" has responded to your agony Canton? Have a nice day Canton, Pops and everybody else. I'll get back to you all when I get home from work :-D

Funding High Risk/High Reward Technologies:
Originated under the Bush administration, President Obama launched ARPA-E in 2009.
ARPA-E is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, a small arm of the Pentagon created after the Soviet launch of the first satellite, Sputnik. DARPA's job was to take back the lead in the space race and then win the Cold War, and in it's history it was crucial in the creation of the GPS, the stealth fighter and the Internet.
ARPA-E's job is to do the same to energy, by finding viable technologies with the potential to transform the American energy landscape but that are too early, to risky or too academic to attract regular investors. ARPA-E steps in where the market won't by getting inventors the resources-money, business expertise, lab space- to see if the idea can be translated into reality. Many of them will fail. The hope is that a few successes will be sufficient to create a radically altered world.
More than 3,000 people gather each February for ARPA-E's Energy Innovation Summit. Entrepreneurs, regulators and investors cruise the aisles with military officers, academics and utility executives. Some ideas being shown;
www.electrofuels.org
http://youtu.be/iF9f6o5W81
www.makanipower.com

Grantee Cree displayed a 1-megawatt silicon carbide transistor the size of a fingernail. A suitcase-size box filled with the transistors could one day replace the 8,000-pound transformers in substations everywhere.
Alliant Techsystems took technology it developed for use in supersonic wind tunnels and built a prototype that scrubs the carbon dioxide out of smoke stack emissions. If it works, the life of hundreds of coal plants could be extended indefinitely.
Oh, by the way, Makani's idea was funded by the Department of Energy's Advanced Research Projects Administration in 2010 and acquired by Google in May.

Sorry truck driver. As much as I know you are a fetch boy for the oil industry, I'll stick to getting my information from NASA and the overwhelming majority of weather experts. You know, the guys who accurately predicted the hottest decade in recorded history? I'm sure you remember. It was when the Koch Brother oil billionaires were spending millions to form your opinions on global weather trends. Not that being a fat truck driver doesn't make you an expert.
