There aren't very many forests left, so we can't go on much longer claiming it is just fine to cut down all of the forests to scrape up oil and it is just fine to increase the human population from 500 million to 7 billion because of using carbon energy. Carbon energy will run out soon enough and the 6.5 billion extra humans will be caught with no way to survive. Or, if carbon energy doesn't run out before we make the Earth too hot to live on, in the next 20 or so years, then everyone will die off from that anyway.

It's the oil companies with greed to insanity. It's like greed of money so stay on ending oil no matter it kills everyone off, it pollutes everything so badly it kills everyone off. Maybe the plan is to funnel all the money to the one percent, drill up the last of the oil, and then when it's all gone, only the one percent can survive. I guess that's the plan. The Republicans' energy policy is greed to insanity, greed of money to death of everyone.

You know, rather than George W. Bush invading Iraq to get one-tenth of the remaining oil in the world, instead of Bush killing all those innocent people, all of those kids, instead of Bush dropping thousands of toxic bombs on Iraq and destroying it in total, he could have simply done the right thing. he could have called up Al Gore and asked him how to move the U.S. onto clean energy and how to create millions of jobs doing so and worked at making the U.S. the number one exporter of solar panels and other forms of clean energy. He could have saved the country rather than taking it down for the rich when he found out Saudi oil was running out. He could have had balls and left Iraq alone ande moved onto clean energy.

<quoted text>You should watch Michael Moore's movie about the war in Iraq. If you want to find out why Bush did 9/11, find out that oil is running out, find out Bush invaded Iraq to get the oil in Iraq, find out about the trillions spent on contracts on the rich contractors, find out about the real crony capitalism, you should look at that movie. First look at the Oil Crash Movie then look at Moore's movie. After the two of them, you find out the rich took the U.S. down over oil running out. Go get the information, stop looking at Hannity saying all hate stuff. he's not telling you anything real. You all have low IQs and you are all blind, you know nothing, you just repeat hate from Fox and come in here to harm strangers. Idiots loaded with hate stuff looking to beat up on strangers. You're ghetto trash.

Why do you people keep calling a Ron Paul supporter a liberal? I have news for you. I voted Republican from the time I was 18 because my family is rich, until now, and now I am 55, so for 36 years I voted Republican and I have never had any use for the Dems. The country totally collapsed when Bush was in office so I went and looked for a new way of doing things because I realized both parties had gotten so bad and ran up so much debt all of a sudden that we needed something new. So I found Ron Paul and I love what he has to say. In the meantime, this "tea party" started and they were mainly former Dems, unlike myself, and many of them did vote for Obama, not me, and many of them are also first time voters, not me, and so they didn't know anything about anything and so they let Fox TV tell them the answer is simply to vote Republican, so now I have all of these former Dems and first time voters calling me a Dem. You people show how dumb you are in here every single day for almost 4 years now. You all ONLY repeat the TV so you think anyone who is normal, who is smart, who was a Republican all those years and who is fed up with them is a liberal. If all you all you know is Fox says hate liberals, and all you know is to repeat the hate stories from Fox, of course you are stupid, so you see a smart person and you have never even seen one, so you don't even understand it. This is how bad off the U.S. is now. And, if you only repeat stuff from other people, of course if I don't do that, all you know how to do is try to slap the liberal label onto it. This shows how dumbed down the people are. It's a bunch of people repeating the TV and no good could ever come out of things like that. No good can come from millions of people repeating hate stuff from 3-4 billionaires on TV. Life doesn't work that way. All you people have done is hand over your power to a few people. Instead of electing Ron paul and getting rid of both parties, you bought the Fox BS and think one bad party is better than the other because your only information is from the TV. You are making problem after problem instead of coming up with the real solutions.

If you people did not have low IQs, you would not repeat the TV, and you would be thinking and debating me, instead all you have is to slap the Dem label on everyone who does think for themselves. it is such a mess, and a nation with people that lazy and dumb and uninformed cannot stand. It is an impossibility.

Your IQ is sooooo low, you are too stupid to even be able to learn anything so all you can do is make personal attacks, try to harm people. You are the type Fox loves, super dumb, scared, violent types who love the hate stuff from Fox. You all were supposed to get rid of both parties and control the media, not let the media elites control you and control the elections. You people flip on Fox and think a TV channel will save you, will do all for you, will think for you. Yeah right. Nothing stupider has ever been tried. You all needed to be smart enough to support Ron Paul and tell both Fox and MSNBC to go to hell when they tried to trash Ron Paul to keep their parties in power and their big spending going and keep things the same. You are supposed to have a revolution and take control of the situation yourselves, not let other people control you and control the elections.

I'm light years ahead of all of you because I already voted Republican for 36 years and then moved on to Libertarian, so to me, I see Fox getting rid of change, getting rid of Ron Paul, whereas you all never voted Republican before so you think there is some big answer in doing so now and you are 20 years behind, you haven't even figured it out yet that the media is totaly bullsh!t and that you have to go Libertarian and get rid of both parties. It is going to take the fake tea party 20 years to catch up to where I am, and you all call me a liberal, which NO ONE ever in my life called me a Dem, not ever. This is this new idiotic tea party controlled by the TV doing this stupid crap.

She pretends she likes Ron Paul but disses the Tea Party.
It's a tactic to get Ron Paul supporters not to vote for Romney.

The Tea Party elected Rand Paul as a US senator from Te.But don't tell Pam.Rand is also Ron's son.
Rand Paul and the Tea Party beat an ole go along , get along GOPer backed by Mitch O'Connell in the GOP primary.

Only 96,000 service type jobs created in Aug. Will probably be revised down to 86,000 jobs, or less.

Unemployment rate drops from 8.3 to 8.1% but only after 368,000 people give up looking for a job and so completely drop out of the jobs market.

Oh, I forgot, the 368,000 people who dropped out of the jobs market are just being polite to make room for some of the 1.2 million deferred deportation "illegals" that Obama issued work permits to. After all, Obama thinks that illegals getting a job is more important than "legal" citizens getting a job.

Obama has to keep those latino voters happy at all costs.
