Any of that crap helping our economy..
You should show some proof of this. Also "if" and I use the word "if" loosely; if the oil rigs were moved from our shores, then it was probably because this current administration anti-drilling policies. Also if you don't know or understand oil rigs are NOT controlled by the US GOVT. they are a "Private" business therefore they can move anywhere where they are welcome. It seems as if you think the US GOVT. controls private businesses, well in this country we have a constitution and that is in place to "Limit" the power of the FEDERAL and STATE GOVT.; it is also NOT their job to create jobs for the economy.

Chandler Says Kentucky Certified Underground Miner “Isn’t A Miner”
Thursday, September 20th

LEXINGTON, KY – Continuing his desperate effort to hide his complicity in the Obama Administration's War on Coal, Ben Chandler today intensified his attack on Heath Lovell, a Kentucky Certified Underground Coal Miner who began working underground at age 18, releasing a new television advertisement which dismisses the loss of more than 2,000 Kentucky coal jobs this year as a “big lie” because, at least in Chandler's mind, Lovell “isn't a miner.”

“Ben Chandler's persistent attacks on a third-generation Kentucky coal miner who rose to a position of responsibility through the sweat of his own brow show just how badly Washington has warped this career politician's perspective,” congressional candidate Andy Barr said.

“He thinks there's something wrong with Heath Lovell's success – that somehow, becoming a manager means you stop understanding and caring for people you have worked alongside for years. Meanwhile, he says a labor boss who represents just 3% of Kentucky miners located in one mine – and who likely hasn't worked in a mine for decades – speaks for 'real coal miners.' Simply mind-blowing.

“It's time Ben Chandler faced up to his complicity in the War on Coal, and stopped trashing a hard-working Kentucky coal miner who made good.”

Chandler Falsehood: Heath Lovell “isn't a miner.”

Fact: Heath Lovell is a Kentucky Certified Underground Miner, a Kentucky Certified Mine Foreman, a Kentucky Certified Mine Instructor, and a Kentucky Certified Electrician. He attended the University of Kentucky as a Singletary Scholar, graduating with a degree in electrical engineering. While attending UK, Lovell worked as an underground coal miner during his summer, spring, and Christmas vacations. Following his graduation, Lovell returned to coal mining full time. Having worked his way up to his current position, Lovell supervises the work of hundreds of coal miners, going underground at least once a week.

Chandler Falsehood: Ben Chandler has been endorsed by “Kentucky's real miners.”

Fact: Chandler has been endorsed only by the United Mine Workers' Association, which represents just 3% of Kentucky's coal miners and whose membership is limited to one Western Kentucky coal mine.

Chandler Falsehood: Ben Chandler “took on his own party to protect Kentucky coal jobs” and “opposed unfair EPA regulations.”

Fact: These claims do not list any supporting sources for a reason. Because there aren't any. In fact, these assertions completely contradict Chandler's record:

In 2009, Chandler voted for the job-killing “cap and trade” bill, which could have cost Kentucky as many as 35,000 jobs by 2030, according to the Science Applications International Corporation.
Chandler claims he voted for cap and trade because “that that was a better option for the coal industry than the EPA coming in”- but Chandler has voted consistently against congressional proposals to curb the EPA's abuses of power:
1) Chandler voted against H.R. 2018, the “Clean Water Cooperative Federalism Act of 2011”, which would have prohibited the EPA from arbitrarily overriding Kentucky's decisions to issue coal mine permits. In a lawsuit pursued by Governor Steve Beshear, a federal district court ruled last month that the EPA acted illegally.

2) Chandler opposed H.R. 10, the “Regulations in Need of Scrutiny Act”(the REINS Act), a bill introduced by former U.S. Rep. Geoff Davis (KY-04) that earned bipartisan support in the U.S. House of Representatives, which would have required congressional review and approval of major new regulations.

3) Chandler became an original co-sponsor of H.R. 1375, the “Clean Water Protection Act,” which would have effectively banned surface mining in Kentucky.

With President Romney we won't have class warfare, no race baiting, no arrogant, narcissistic holier-than-thou late night appearances on David Letterman while our citizens are being murdered by terrorists...a real president at last! No more Obama the man-child to have to deal with and his little meltdowns when he doesn't get his way. Oh, hurry up November.

Why is this on Topix this is about election in 2010, I guess people should B having buyers remorse on Rand Paul though! I respect his Father though, if Ron Paul had ran on Independent ticket he would win in 2012, he would get my vote just for the way the Republicans treated him, they wouldnt even mention his name till they where sure he had no chance, I guess they thought nobody would notice. If you where paying close attention they way they did things conserning Ron Paul, would give you a lot of insight on this modern Republican party, the Neo Cons have taken the party over, not your daddys R party!!

Nerd man...liberal biased media? yeah right!

Major multinational corporations, Middle Eastern sovereign wealth funds and Saudi Princes, all hell bent on protecting their own interests, choose what you will see on the nightly news and trick you into believing it is unbiased reporting. As we see below all the major news outlets, regardless of what they make you believe, contributed heavily to George W. Bush in both 2000 and 2004 so any argument that they are controlled by liberals evaporates. In this case they all supported the candidate that promised to allow consolidation of multiple media companies.

The very news stories that you are fed by the mainstream media are manipulated to mirror the public relations campaigns of companies that operate nuclear plants, sprawling theme parks that gobble up wetlands, defense contractors, oil companies and even Saudi Princes. Remember the old "Outer Limits" TV shows where the announcer says "We control everything you see and hear, the vertical, the horizontal," etc? The corporate controlled news media controls all you see and hear.

"Conservative News Media"

Why did Australian Rupert Murdoch forsake his native country and become a U.S. citizen? Reportedly it was because he could save on taxes and start over in virgin territory after leaving behind so much scorched earth in the Australian economy as he laid waste to his business opponents and bought up media outlets. Or perhaps it was just so he could get around foreign media ownership laws.(Which no longer exist.)

Does a Saudi billionaire actually have the power to control the news on the Fox network, of which he is a part owner?

NEWS CORPORATION LTD./ FOX NETWORKS (Rupert Murdoch, numerous donations. On Board of Directors of Phillip Morris, Phillip Morris Donated 2.9 million to Bush's campaign.
Major Television Holdings:
* Fox Television: includes 22 major and many affiliate stations, Penetration into more than 60% of US households.
* Fox International: extensive worldwide cable and satellite networks include British Sky Broadcasting (40%); VOX, Germany (49.9%); Canal Fox, Latin America; FOXTEL, Australia (50%); STAR TV, Asia, IskyB, India; Bahasa Programming Ltd., Indonesia (50%); and News Broadcasting, Japan (80%), major owner of DirecTV.
* The Golf Channel (33%).
Other Major Media Hodings:
* Twentieth Century Fox, Fox Searchlight.
* 132 major newspapers (113 in Australia alone) including the New York Post, the London Times and The Australian.
* Owns 25 magazines including TV Guide and The Weekly Standard.
* Owns HarperCollins books.
Othe Major Corporation Holdings around the word:
* Sports: LA Dodgers, LA Kings, LA Lakers, National Rugby League.
* Ansett Australia airline, Ansett New Zealand airlines.
* Rupert Murdoch is on the Board of Directors of Philip Morris, a major Bush donor.


It's no surprise that corporate robber baron Rupert Murdoch is a major Bush supporter but who else owns Fox News? Prince al-Walid bin Talal owns 5.5% of Fox News.

Prince al- Walid bin Talal stated recently that he used his influence to change Fox's headlines. During the recent riots in Muslim neighborhoods in France Fox was using the term "Muslim Riots" to describe rioting by Muslim youths and Prince bin Talal claims that called Fox News had them change the title of the story to "Youth Riots". Source. worldnetdaily.com

In another instance, where supposedly conservative Fox News should have been up in arms, was the deal by a United Arab Emirates holding company to buy U.S. ports. Suddenly Fox went from being against the deal to very supportive of a deal that would have put US container ports in foreign hands. A U.A.E. sovereign wealth fund also owns major shares of Fox.

The "good ole boys" that hang on every word that Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly utters might not be so happy when they hear who is whispering in their idol's ears.

I am from KY, so I guess I have an opinion on Rand Paul, seems to have some balls if you ask me! There is a differance in your old school Republican and a Tea Party Republican my friend, give Rand a chance and I belive he will make KY Proud. That is just my opinion and you have a right to your's. I see Rand Paul on the news alot standing up for things I think are right, and against some of those power hungry thieves in the Senate. What do you think he is doing wrong?
