<quoted text>The republicans refused to mention Bush and they refused to mention the wars. Yet Romney is selling you a war against Iran. If it costs 2-3 trillion, are you willing to pay 10 percent more in taxes to pay for it?? An oil war to steal the oil in Iran like we did in Iraq is going to cost a lot more than the war in Iraq did. It is all mountains and they have the Persian Army. That war will be 2-3 trillion, you want it, are you willing to pay for it or will you run up another 2-3 trillion of debt and then complain about the debt??
I wouldn't mention the A-stan war either.

It's a trap Kerry suckered Obama into.

Just this weekend the U.S. Command A-stan issued orders to stand down on training the A-stan military.
If training is in stand down why not declare " Mission Accomplished " and bring the troops home for Christmas.

Who wants to be the " Last A-stan KIA "?

Cheap oil has all but run out, and 2/3rds of the world's remaining oil is in the Persian Gulf. So the next time Hannity has old John Bolton on to sell you that war in Iran, don't forget it is Iran and Iraq where the oil is. If this country had oil, the Repubs could care less about wars with Iraq and Iran. Bush got the memo about Saudi oil peaking. Read books about peak oil or oil ending. Bush knew Saudi oil would run out, and he knew Iraq had ten percent of the world's oil and he knew Saddam was going to sell it off the dollar, on the Euro, so he went over there and killed all of those innocent people and destroyed their infrastructure and homes and businesses, and think of how many of them will die from cancer from thousands of U.S. bombs being dropped on them. How would you like it if you had pools of oil here and Russia had come here and dropped thousands of bombs on us and destroyed our country and then given our oil over to Russia's oil companies?? And, the kicker is Exxon and BP don't even sell us the oil. They sell it to China. What do you think they want with Iran? Top three oil producing countries - Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Iran. We do not have oil here, obviously. No nation that has a lot of oil has multi-trillion dollar wars against countries that have the oil. We ran out of oil in 1970, and that's when we went into Saudi Arabia. They should be working to get us energy efficent, working with other forms of energy, going over to Germany and finding out how Germany got 30 percent on wind and how Germany got 80 percent energy efficent. These azzsholes are going to get you in another war to get more oil, oil is going to run out, and then we get all this blow back, all these terrorists from us invading these oil rich countries and from us putting dictators in these countries.

This is where people need to read books and go and research and find out what is going on for themselves. You are not hearing anything real from MSNBC nor from Fox. You can't fix a super power by looking at the TV. Nothing dumber has ever been done. The ONLY one who was telling the truth about the real problems and the big issues was Dylan Rattigan, so MSNBC got rid of him. He liked Ron Paul, so they got rid of him. The fake news channels want to keep the whole conversation on hate one party, vote this way, vote for this one, not that one. They are not talking about oil ending, energy efficiency, globalization ending, our trade deficit with China. Donald Trump tells the truth. He's one of the few that tells the real problems, and Dylan Rattigan used to have him on to explain the situation with China. You have to go and get the real information and turn off the hate and election propaganda stuff. Imagine a nation went under, a world super power went completely under in every way while Bush was in office and the people of the nation are so stupid that the TV can con them into forgetting it and into electing Repubs again instead of having a revolution. I hate seeing a few media elites running the nation. It's really sad. you don't have any liberty. Your brains are owned by 3 billionaires on the TV.

Why do you think Ron Paul got up in Santorum, Newt, Perry and Romney's faces and keep saying "no more trillion dollar wars, no war with Iran." Because that is a super smart, wise old man who knows damned well this is debt on top of debt being run up over oil wars and he knew Cheney had this plan to invade Iraq and then Iran for the oil and he is trying to save the American people trillions on oil wars and he is trying to save you from more blow back, from more terrorist attacks, and instead of people getting how great Dr. Paul is, they all go with the flow and think we need a third major war. Think for yourselves, think outside the box, take the lead, read Ron Paul's books. Learn what Libertarian is, find out about ending the Federal Reserve, about it's role in the bubbles and busts.

There is a reason wikipedia is not allowed to be used in academia. It is notoriously unreliable. Case in point would be the Mayor Mia Love, who after speaking at the Republican convention, was attacked on wikipedia. Someone called this wife, mother, and mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, a whore, and other equally disgusting things and passed it off as truth, on wikipedia.

If you knew how our government worked, you would understand why the budget hasn't passed. When any party controls a majority of the house or senate, it would be difficult to pass anything that goes on the table for a vote. Exspecially when a party openly states to not agree with the president even if he has a policy that will help the whole.
Don't be misinformed all of your life. Learn the three branches of government and stop embarrassing yourself with childish comments.

What she is quoting was the current wisdom about 1975-80.

But that has been proven totally false and terribly inaccurate.

I believe the North American sand-tar oil/NG is about 10x larger than the entire 1975 world estimates.

All Oblamer did was either extend or embrace all the Bush policies he campaigned on ending.
He kept the war machine going to the point of adding 2 new fronts without Congressional approval and the only Bush order he overturned was reinstating the executive order on domestic oil drilling sending gas prices back up.

I just picked one thing from her overall nutty posts. There were lots of over reaches and silly "facts". I figured she'd look and see her facts were garbage and maybe clean up the rest of the dopey stuff.

I just read Jeff Rubin's book "Why Your World Is About To Get A Whole Lot Smaller" and now I'm reading "The End Of Oil" By Paul Roberts. Rent the Oil Crash Movie - "A Crude Awakening." It is the best. It won a lot of awards. It explains oil running out and the wars being oil was. But also, you can see Jeff Rubin's lectures on Youtube. He is really good, super smart guy. He is a Canadian economist and the most sought after oil expert, he predicted that oil would go to $150 a barrel long before it did.

In both of the books, they say that the last 5 recessions have been due to the price of oil. They both talk about that big Saudi oil field running dry. Also, look into what China is doing. I read a lot of books, mostly about globalization, about China, oil ending and about Europe at large. I'm reading a really good one right now about Europe and it tells a lot of important things about Russia. I'm working at putting a bunch of pieces of a puzzle together to see how the world at large looks 5-10 years from now. See with the EU crashing, Russia sides now with China against us, and we want to go to war with Iran, so it's important to find out who is on whose side and what each country's motives are, and, which countries have oil left and which ones do not cause that will define who is going to fight for what where.

Here's the oil crash movie.

http://www.oilcrashmovie.com/film.html

When you see the world super power crash, you don't wait for partisian hacks on TV to tell you what happened.

I just read in that one book about Europe that right before Russia collapsed, a few at the top, a few rich folks took everything, they gutted the country financially via government deals. Sound familiar? That is what Bush did. He took the country down for just a handful of people, so you see, the rich knew the U.S. was going to collapse, or they caused it to collapse, it is exactly the same thing the rich did in Russia right before it went under. In Russia, the politicians grabbed the oil and all the nation's wealth. Sound familiar??

You low IQ know nothing folks want to sit in here and talk badly about me, when I am the ONLY one in here who reads books and who knows what is really going on. You all want to read nothing, learn nothing, go find out nothing, and when I hand you all of this real information, all you want to post is personal attacks of me. People who want to run a nation via Fox TV and do not one thing on their own, and who are so low as to attack a person who is educating them for free, you all deserve to go third world. I saw years ago that this country has gotten super dumbed down, so I don't belong here anymore, so I went and worked as hard as I could for years to try to educate people for free, to try to get people thinking, to give them facts. The people in this country are so stupid, they only care about hating on anyone who is intelligent, therefore, they do deserve to go under. And I deserve to be able to get away from people like this. It's not my responsibility to try to raise up the IQs of everyone in the country and be beaten up by them at the same time. It's ghetto stuff, and I should not have to live in a country of people who are this low. I would much rather have conversations with intelligent people who also read books, because that is who is going to solve the problems, as always. You all are mentally dependent people along for the free ride, contributing zero, solving zero.
