Heres one from a libtard network little barnyard.
LMAO, Yep, you trying to pass off bull shit again!!!!!!

The FBI has made clear that reports of a third gun recovered from the perpetrators at the scene of Agent Terry’s murder are false,” the department said in a statement Monday.
This comes one day after Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, appeared on a Sunday morning news show and noted that a now-public FBI ballistics report labeled two guns tied to “Fast and Furious” as “K2″ and “K3,” but “there’s no ‘Ticket 1.’”
“One weapon has a ’2,’ one has a ’3,’ on it. There’s no ’1,’” Issa said on CBS.“When agents who were at Brian Terry’s funeral made statements to his mother indicating that there were three weapons, when the two weapons that they have tested don’t conclusively match up [to the bullet that killed Terry], then you look and say,‘Well, was there a third weapon at the scene?’”

<quoted text>Two serial numbered guns that the ATF allowed to be smuggled into Mexico were found at the scene of Brian Terry. One of those weapons was balistically traced back to wounds Terry sustained in the gun battle. You are Anti-American and an idiot.
Prove me wrong commie!
NO Problem,

So, it appears to be undisputed that two Fast and Furious guns were present at Terry's killing.

And what of the ballistics testing?

The only information we found about ballistics testing and Terry's death was an FBI report completed shortly after the shooting. The report, dated Dec. 23, 2010, says that the bullet that killed Terry could have been fired from the kind of guns that were found at the scene but that "firearms examinations" could not determine if the bullet came from either of the found weapons.

The report — posted online July 26, 2011, by the Times and described in a story the next day — says the bullet "was fired from a barrel rifled with four grooves, right twist, such as the K2 and K3 rifles" — the guns found at the scene. "However," the report says, "due to a lack of sufficient agreement in the individual microscopic marks of value, it could not be determined if the … bullet was fired from the barrel of the K2 or K3 rifles."

Neither the FBI nor the U.S. attorney's office in San Diego, which is handling the Terry case, would comment to us about ballistics tests.

Finally, we talked with the House oversight committee and Grassley's office.

Becca Watkins, a spokeswoman for committee Chairman Issa, told us that the Times' reporting about the FBI report was accurate, although she said the committee is waiting for the Justice Department to respond to requests for more information. "The ballistics report for the guns recovered at Agent Terry's crime scene do not rule out the Operation Fast and Furious guns as the weapon in his death," she said. But she suggested that it wasn't accurate to say that the report confirmed one of them was responsible for his death.

At a Dec. 8, 2011, hearing of the House Judiciary Committee, U.S. Rep. Steve King, R-Iowa, asked Holder whether the department had "identified the weapon that actually killed Agent Terry." Holder replied that he was "not prepared to talk about that" because the investigation is ongoing.

Our ruling

By all accounts, Fast and Furious weapons were found at the scene of a U.S. agent's death. Dewhurst's campaign was emphatic, though, that ballistics tests confirmed that the weapons killed the agent. We found no information indicating that's so. Dewhurst's statement rates False.

I guess obama thinks his Socialist utopia will be better. He fashions himself savior of the poor and disenfranchised. Like most liberals, he does not want to accept the harsh realities of life. He made it under America's "unfair" system, so that makes him a hypocrite by wanting to "fundamentally transform" America. As for Obama's family, they will have it made, no matter how horrible the economic conditions get. His plans already in place, and those yet to come, will also crush the very people he is claiming to help. All it takes for our economy to go into turmoil is the Arab countries refuse to take U.S. dollars for payment for oil or China to refuse to lend us more money. Obama seems to be sincere in helping the downtrodden, but I believe he works for those who are trying to bring about a New World Order. He is a very dangerous man.

Is this where/what you would like to start a "point-counterpoint" debate" with?

<quoted text>
There are analyst on site to run the numbers (the actual numbers) on the wells when they are drilled. I never said I didn't believe in science because I do. Believing in science isn't an all-or-nothing proposition. I believe that science is very important to our society but only on tangible things. When you get into the theoretical aspects you start to lose me because without concrete tangible information that can be measured as it happens, the accuracy rate is less reliable. You may agree with everything science offers up so you will be wrong far more than you will be right and you will continue to have to change your position on things like the science community does.
There are analyst on site to run the numbers of the well to see how much is down there and how long they will be at that site. They do not tell the numbers of how much oil is contained by the U.S. and off shore. I never said science was all or nothing as I stated that i do not fully support the big bang theory; however, you denouncing what scientist say and agree on climate change and on how they determine how much oil the U.S. contains is totally different. That, as i have stated before, is like going to a docter, them diagnosing you with cancer and you telling them no i do not have cancer. I completely concur with your statement "When you get into the theoretical aspects you start to lose me because without concrete tangible information that can be measured as it happens, the accuracy rate is less reliable." I believe the same way. Change is something science is accustom to and has also adopted as a way of practicing and "experimenting". Results may change and so may factors to which they must reassess their reasoning and produce a more accurate outcome. It by no means implies that what they discovered to begin with was completely innaccurate but just needs reevaluated.

I have to agree with warrior fast and furious are just one of the many coverups that your old pal obama is involved in. It's amazing how many scandals and coverups he's involved and again he comes up smelling like a rose. Usually if it looks a pile of crap and smells like a pile of crap it's a pile of crap. You ought to be really happy now that obama has a second term cause you will get the real communist man. He didn't want you to see the real obama. Because somebody like you might get scared off. I bet you are going love obama's government telling what to do. There's one thing i should tell you will have to ask to go to the bathroom and they will probably make you hold it.Then the one thing I will be able to say about you and obama, you both are full of crap.
I must say you make no sense at all. Spent more time talking about literal crap instead of trying to support your subjective point of view.

"Things Republicans Believe

Being a drug addict is a moral failing and a crime, unless you're a conservative radio host. Then it's an illness and you need our prayers for your recovery.

The United States should get out of the United Nations, and our highest national priority is enforcing U.N. resolutions against Iraq.

Government should relax regulation of Big Business and Big Money but crack down on individuals who use marijuana to relieve the pain of illness.

"Standing Tall for America" means firing your workers and moving their jobs to India.

A woman can't be trusted with decisions about her own body, but multi-national corporations can make decisions affecting all mankind without regulation.

Jesus loves you, and shares your hatred of homosexuals and Hillary Clinton.

The best way to improve military morale is to praise the troops in speeches while slashing veterans' benefits and combat pay.

Group sex and drug use are degenerate sins unless you someday run for governor of California as a Republican.

If condoms are kept out of schools, adolescents won't have sex.

A good way to fight terrorism is to belittle our long-time allies, then demand their cooperation and money.

HMOs and insurance companies have the interest of the public at heart.

Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism.

Global warming and tobacco's link to cancer are junk science, but creationism should be taught in schools.

Saddam was a good guy when Reagan armed him, a bad guy when Bush's daddy made war on him, a good guy when Cheney did business with him and a bad guy when Bush needed a "we can't find Bin Laden" diversion.

A president lying about an extramarital affair is an impeachable offense. A president lying to enlist support for a war in which thousands die is solid defense policy.

Government should limit itself to the powers named in the Constitution, which include banning gay marriages and censoring the Internet.

The public has a right to know about Hillary's cattle trades, but George Bush's driving record is none of our business.

You support states' rights, which means Attorney General John Ashcroft can tell states what local voter initiatives they have a right to adopt.

What Bill Clinton did in the 1960s is of vital national interest, but what Bush did in the '80s is irrelevant.

Trade with Cuba is wrong because the country is communist, but trade with China and Vietnam is vital to a spirit of international harmony."

Two police officers respond to a crime scene behind a grocery store. The homicide detective is already there. "What happened?" asks the first officer. "Male, about twenty-five, covered in Raisin Bran and dead as a doornail." "Good grief," says the second officer. "Didn't we have one covered in Frosted Flakes yesterday? And Captain Crunch last week?" "You're right. I'm afraid," said the detective as he took a drag from his cigar, "this is the work of a cereal killer."

Gas prices might go up, not down: Right now, a lot of oil being produced in Canada and North Dakota has trouble reaching the refineries and terminals on the Gulf. Since that supply can't be sold abroad, it reduces the competition for it to Midwest refineries that can pay lower prices to get it.
Giving the Canadian oil access to the Gulf means the glut in the

Midwest goes away, making it more expensive for the region.
http://money.cnn.com/2012/03/22/news/economy/...

Tell me something OA, if that pipeline was meant to supply the US oil, why is it going to the Gulf of Mexico at a major shipping port, all the while going by refineries in the Mid West and California which is much closer?

Hint- The gulf is closer to South America, where the refined diesel fuel will be sold.

BTW- It was delayed, not blocked.
