I tend to think that your thinking is upside down.
I am a life long Republican of Old. Conservative yet progressive that believes it is wise to keep the religious nuts out of politics.
That said it was President Reagan that implemented the idea of trickle down economy and moved the county towards more and more corporate deregulation. The industrial base was moved out of this country and slowly the good jobs were sucked out of the USA.
IBM was sold to China and slowly that company has cut jobs in the USA and not just worker jobs but jobs of top Engineers.
The Democratic Party is not perfect either but right now the Republican Party has taken a trip down the rabbit hole into whacko land.
If one takes a honest look at what Bush/Cheney did while in office one has to give President Obama a lot of credit for trying to straighten out the mess they handed him. But to take that "honest" look one has to take off the blinder's that tie you to treating a political party like a religion where it can do not wrong.
agreed.....to many people here that won't open their eyes....if they don't hear it on the fox news, it isn't true......

( CNSNews.com )– The seasonally-adjusted price index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs hit an all-time high in May, according to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).
In January 1967, when the BLS started tracking this measure, the index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs was 38.1. As of last May, it was 234.572. By this January, it hit 240.006. By April, it hit 249.362. And, in May, it climbed to a record 252.832.
“The index for meats, poultry, fish and eggs has risen 7.7 percent over the span [last year],” says the BLS.“The index for food at home increased 0.7 percent, its largest increase since July 2011. Five of the six major grocery store food group indexes increased in May. The index for meats, poultry, fish, and eggs rose 1.4 percent in May after a 1.5 increase in April, with virtually all its major components increasing.

when my 16 oz coffee turned into 10 oz coffee, i knew we had a problem......
most products anyone buys today is half the size it was last year.....
manufactures and companies are still making money charging the same prices for less product.....stop buying from them until they start doing right to the public again......not everyone buying products that are half the size now can be that stupid to let it continue.....stop buying products from companies that are ripping you off, after awhile, they'll get the picture.

The Keystone XL pipeline will not do the gasoline price situation in the USA any good. Its purpose is to transport Canadian oil to Galveston, where it will be loaded on tankers for export to China.

All Keystone XL will do is present a huge danger to the water supply of the Great Plains. That monster pipeline breaks and the oil runs into the aquifer, it will be far worse than the Gulf of Mexico oil spill. It will be underground, in the aquifer that the Plains depend on for irrigation water. There will be no way to clean it up. Lose the irrigation water from the aquifer and the Great Plains, America's breadbasket, will become the Great American Desert.

Canadian Tar Sand Oil is “foreign oil” being transported to oil refineries to be refined and then sold on the world market.

Canadian Tar Sand oil is not the nicest stuff to handle or attempt to refine. When refined it creates a lot of pollutants. It is thick gooey stuff. The pollutants will remain in the USA. If what I read is correct it has more pollutants than normal crude oil.

Then the majority of it winds up being a heavier road tar and roofing tar rather than gas. Plus Most of it is heading oversea. It will have little effect on gas prices.

Why let another country pipe that stuff across the USA and endanger water formations. In addition what does the USA gain other than risk of pollution and more pollutants? Let Canada move it and process the filthy stuff in Canada. Canada is smart and don’t want the stuff refined in Canada due to hazardous by products.

Not all Canadians have sold their political souls to large companies. Canadians also don't have the political spin doctors like Fixed News doing their thinking for them.

Even if they flush the pipe will never be clean. It will remain in place with some environmental danger.

Jobs? Maybe some Canadians will show up to put in the pipe line - temporary workers - after that maybe a few pipe line inspectors and a few refinery workers. Is it worth the risk?
This is nothing but a big oil venture that the USA citizens (taxpayers) take all the long term risk and get very little benefit from. The jobs argument is weak at best compared to the risks and benefits.

Why not let Canada refine the tar oil themselves, keep the nasty filthy stuff in Canada, until refined thus keeping the environmental hazards it presents and pollutants caused when refining it?

You should take some time and do some personal research on Canadian Tar Sand Oil from how it is mined to how bad that stuff is to refine.

Think for yourself and do some personal research before letting your head get packed by the political spin doctors.

The Obama recovery aka the fundamental transformation of America aka The Welfare Nation
( CNSNews.com )- A record 92,269,000 Americans 16 and older did not participate in the labor force in August, as the labor force participation rate matched a 36-year low of 62.8 percent, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The labor force participation rate has been as low as 62.8 percent in six of the last twelve months, but prior to last October had not fallen that low since 1978.
BLS employment statistics are based on the civilian noninstitutional population, which consists of all people 16 or older who were not in the military or an institution such as a prison, mental hospital or nursing home.
In August, the civilian noninstitutional population was 248,229,000 according to BLS. Of that 248,229,000, 155,959,000—or 62.8 percent--participated in the labor force, meaning they either had or job or had actively sought one in the last four weeks.
The Labor Department announced today that only 142,000 jobs were created in August (much less than predicted), yet the unemployment rate still allegedly dropped to 6.1%. Given the fact that record numbers of Americans have given up looking for work, Obama's so-called economic recovery just isn't working, despite the spin coming out of this Administration, which has become quite adapt at manipulating statistics.

More smoke and mirrors by Obama and company.

In September of 2007 (exactly 7 years ago), I was at Walmart using the pay phone. I then noticed this little piece of paper folded up (a page torn right out of a Bible!). I got it, unfolded it. Guess what it said, "D**n the Holy Spirit God!!!". You fill in the ** with am. That's Hell bound ain't it?.

AFGHANISTAN - OBAMAS WAR wrote:
Afghanistan was the 'right war' according to Obumbler:
Western officials report that the Taliban are making “alarming gains” in Afghanistan, seizing control of two districts and reaching a level of power not seen since 2009, when President Obama ordered what was supposed to be their decisive defeat.
The statistics from the Afghanistan Defense Ministry show a “huge” rise in combat deaths for the Afghan Army and police at the hands of Taliban forces, and the recent losses in Kunduz have raised “deeper-than-expected concern” about the security forces’ ability to hold territory without Western troops entering the fight.
Also, in the interest of accuracy, we shouldn't forget that over 80% of all U.S. deaths in Afghanistan occurred since 2009 under Obama.
Afghanistan, Iraq, ISIS, Syria, Ebola, the still faltering economy and enormous debt, the list goes on and on. Crisis after crisis, and all occurring less than 2 weeks before the mid-term election. No wonder Democratic candidates are running away from Obama's endorsement!

BHO wasn't humble at all after the Democrats lost the Senate and even more seats in the House yesterday, as well as governorships in a number of states they used to own. Even Illinois went Republican, as did Michigan, Maryland, etc. while the Democrats only got Pennsylvania in return. In spite of this, BHO was arrogant throughout his rambling hour plus press conference. At least the White House Press finally had the guts to ask some tough questions for a change, instead of the softballs they usually throw at him. I guess they sense that he's a lame duck, and are circling like sharks who smell blood in the water. This is a great opportunity for the Republicans to undo some of the damage done by Obama and the Dems since 2009, and pave the way for a Republican to return to the White House in 2016. Let's hope they don't blow it this time!

WAR ON WOMAN wrote:
Radical liberal feminism — the kind that likes abortion on demand and taxpayer-funded birth control — has been rejected at the polls. Or, at least, it’s been a really rough week, or so. And I’m not just talking about the fact that Sen.-elect Cory Gardner effectively pushed back on the “war on women” narrative by defeating Colorado’s ”Mark Uterus.”
The story also played out in Texas, where — writing about the race — Mollie Hemingway observed:“Wendy Davis was the face of ‘War On Women’ Politics. How’d that go?” And it played out in California, where Sandra Fluke lost a bid for the state Senate.
And! It played out all across the nation, as conservative women won historic elections. As I noted at The Week:“West Virginia Rep. Shelley Moore Capito and Iowa’s Joni Ernst, for example, will both become the first female senators ever elected from their respective states. New York’s Elise Stefanik last night became the youngest woman ever elected to Congress. And Utah’s Mia Love became the first Haitian-American member of Congress. I could go on…”(Meanwhile, it was a slightly less good night for liberal female candidates like Democrat Alison Lundergan Grimes.)
Thankfully, Tuesday's election showed that there is still hope for this country, as long as thinking Americans stay involved in what is happening here.
