<quoted text>Hey, leave Marky out of this! How's the weather down Aruba way? I still haven't made it there yet.....we talked about again this weekend for our next adventure in the future.
The weather is boring as always, Sunny 84-86 degrees 365 days a
year here.... No need for a weather forecaster in Aruba... No hurricanes because they are to far south and we have been coming
here for over 20 years and I never remember even a thunder storm...
Occasional 5 minute morning rain but it dries as fast as it hits the ground.....

Let me try to keep it VERY VERY VERY simple for you. It looks like in post 8 you are saying Bush subsides were bad. Then in post 13 you are saying Obama subsidies are good. For the record I feel all ALL SUBSIDE$S are BAD. Let me repeat ALL SUBSIDES are BAD. If you want to look at other areas take Subsides to Farmers not to grow food yet look at prices going up for food.

Obama's subsidies to big oil????
Obama doesn't and hasn't given any subsidies to big oil... That my friend had been the job of the GOP for the last 50 years....
Subsidies to farmers????? What farmers McNutt, they're all huge corporations now with the likes of Cargill and Monsanto, about $70 billion worth in sales.... They are the ones getting the subsidies, NOT little farmer Jones in Vermont.... That little piece of taxpayer cash totaled $170 billion over a ten year period and was signed by the retarded Bush back in 2002.... Keep it up McNutt, you're digging a deeper hole for the GOP....

You keep it up it shows how good these programs are>. If they were bad all "THE MESSIAH" aka Obama had to do was stand up in from of his MAJIC TELEPROMPTER and say "IN THE NAME OF THE OBAMA STOP GIVING TNEM" Now answer are they still they "ONE" still paid because he likes them or "TWO" he is so imcompent when Dem's had a supper majority he could not get it passed. "THREE" was he so busy with basketball picks he did not have time. Ps did you see him on the news shooting hoops last week.

Alex's hero nobama is the one that shoots hoops all day, not Alex.

Charone told one morning last week that Alex didn't have that problem. I'll have take her at her word, but she was exhausted at the time... I think Alex was in surgery for something and I had to console her. Quite a trouper she was.

Before I answer this I will remind you that I am not loyal to either party and I don't vote strictly GOP or Dem....
Now since you always like to answer a question with a question I feel obligated to do the same... Name one president who was successful in removing all legislation which was created by the opposing party????

I have about 30 years left to live so I await your knowledgeable reply.....

NONE but some have least tried. What I keep saying is One if Obama did not even try does he like what Bush passed? TWO with a supper majority was he so incompetent he was not able? THREE was he so busy with basketball he could not find the time. Plus I might add a FOURTH was his majic teleprompter broke? I have over 30 years left so will you some day give a answer to why he did not even try??

Now just how much do you think these clowns are going to accomplish
with a Democratic-led Senate and Republican-led House????
