I am well aware of that fact. All anyone has to do is listen to Jeremiah Wright to figure that out.
Oh, you mean the only racism is from white people, right?
Perhaps if you lived in the same region that produced someone like David Duke, and your family was:
1) Catholic
2) mixed race (French, Spanish, Native American, black, jew... in addition to Scot/Irish)
3) recently located there
you'd have a goddam clue about what the f**k you're talking about.

What did you say? You never had to fight it out with the goddam Klan?
Well, I did your goddam fighting for you.
Just like other white people did your fighting for you to end slavery.

Now, tell us why you're so goddam special you need special treatment from the government.
how about you join the real world with everyone else here?

I'll put it to you simply:
Geothermal heating is a piece of cake. Just drill a hole to the temperature you desire, and circulate water through it and throughout the building.
Geothermal cooling is very difficult. Why? Because the heat you transfer from a building to the ground has to be transported away from the location of the building, or it just rises back into the building.
Any questions?
How about this one:
How is the heat transported away from the location of the building after it has been transferred from the building to the Earth immediately below the building?
... your turn, dufus.
You claim to be a geologist.

What a joke.

This is not geothermal HVAC as considered in the marketplace.

Ya'll want the man to save the world. Assholes amongst your liken probably voted against him thus allowing companies to continue to receive tax breaks for shipping jobs overseas in support of sweat shops (foreign slavery). Meanwhile ya'll supported bush's attempt at a bailout that literally was a waste of tax payers money. Listening to your logic is like the blind leading the blind which is why the last 2 republicans to run for office were demolished!
You are a Liberal, do even of he orders the killing of three ex-boyfriend gays, you will still worship him.

Even if falsify his College transcripts you will still worship the altar of socialism.

Don't be fooled, the Obama unemployment rate is 11%.

You forgot to put content into your post. I gave a reason to eliminate the minimum wage. What is your reason to keep it? And, why do you think it is good for the economy to increasei it?
By the way, you never answered the question of where the money will come from to pay for Obama's government.
give me some hard data on why we shouldn't have it.

and no, i don't expect you will even try. you seem to have an aversion to empirical data. we haven't seen a hard fact from you yet.

but why actually make me look the fool when you have a handful of emphatic statements that cover every tea party myth.[?]

<quoted text>Bullshit! Those entitlement programs are in jeopardy because the rich raped the current tax system & found ways to escape from paying into the programs. The rich don't pay into medicare,medicaid, & SS. Thats where the problem lies. This country is in debt because the rich continue to take alot & give very littler back in terms of taxes. You don't need a palm reader to see that!
See? Liberals see and use the tax system to punish capitalism. To punish the rich cause they hate success and want more and more free stuff.

Hey, goofball, what about stopping the free Medicaid to drug dealers?

What about stopping welfare to lazy ghetto parasites like you? That will save trillions of dollars!

At any rate raising the minimum wage has proved to be beneficial to small business. States with higher minimum wages have had better small business activity than those with lower rates.

WRONG!!!

Obama's minimum wage proposal will hurt black Americans


What will a minimum wage increase do to black Americans? Olalah Njenga joins Jim Blasingame to discuss some of Obama's State of the Union proposals, including the minimum wage increase, which will hurt black workers disproportionately.

How amusing to watch Democrats wring their hands over what they can do to get businesses to create jobs, when one of the biggest job killers is the minimum wage they keep hiking.

Recall that it was Democrats who raised the federal wage floor a whopping $2.10 an hour in the middle of the recession. The record 41% increase has led to record unemployment among young people, especially black teens.

<quoted text>The legal legislature was in absentia having seceded temporarily from the Union. Had they successfully left and had been recognized as a seperate country then you might have a case. Even then West Virginia should have been Virginia, the mere fact that they created a new state called West Virginia violates the Constitution.
Bottom line West Virginia was created illegally and should never been allowed per Arcticle 4 Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution.
End of story.
"In absentia" while rebelling against the federal republic....

Do you listen to yourself?

When any legislator joined the functioning elements of the government established outside of the constitutional government, that legislator cannot be part of any legislative government within the federal republic.
The Constitution prohibits states from joining other countries, dufus.

... "in absentia"....

"Hey! I'm gonna rebel and start a new country from part of your country. While I'm fighting a goddam war with you, I'll be in absentia. Please hold my seat while I kill you."

... get real.

You still haven't shown us how the loyal legislators of Virginia violated Article IV Section 4:
"Section 4. The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened) against domestic Violence."

How did the loyal legislators of Virginia violate the above clause?
How was Virginia not a "Republican Form of Government"?

What are the opportunities do black people have that white people don't & I don't mean making it to the pros in basketball or football. Please explain your claim because I'm under the assumption your just talking out your ass again & know none of what you speak of!

How about common sense, and experience.

I pay the people in accordance with what they are worth.
I compete with other companies to keep the people I DEEM to be worth keeping.
Those who perform the best, I pay more. Those who don't perform, I pay less... and get rid of when I don't need the services of someone who is still only worth minimum wage after being in the workforce for several years.

You dodge the issue.
I asked why an employer should pay more for aan employee that isn't what he's paying it now?

... got an answer for that?

Bush also called upon Fannie and Freddie to play a greater role, lower lending requirements, AND legislation was passed ( by the GOP) to cover the down payment for low income families.
Why?

Because Libtards would use the media to accuse Bush of racists if he attempted to be fiscally responsible with Fannie and Fredie!

Actually, the did ANYWAY!

The message Fox has on again/off again observed is overwhelmingly clear: no president has the power to influence gas prices in light of a complex geopolitical climate and myriad other market forces affecting supply and demand.

oh, oh, oh, unless it's Obama!
