Here's a scam. The Repub Gov of N.J. is asking the Feds for funds to remove snow.

If you're the Gov of a N.E. State, and you need to ask the Feds for snow removal funds, you don't need to be the Gov of a N.E. State.

Even worst, he's a repub, and supposedly he's against Fed funds....

...oh wait...thats only if the fed funds are not for his constituency.

Obama just gave a Brazilian oil company 2 billion dollars to drill in the Gulf while strangling our own oil producers and cutting Americans out of jobs. Guess who has a huge sstock interest in that Brazilian oil company...None other than George Soros...super-commie. Commies like Obama and Soros stick together to screw us.

Oil giant BP has fired the latest shots in a legal battle over the Deepwater Horizon catastrophe, claiming contractor Halliburton should pay all of its billions of pounds of costs.
In a filing at the federal court in New Orleans, BP said the cement contractor should reimburse it for the cost of cleaning up the oil spill, the lost profits from the well and "all other costs and damages", Bloomberg News reported.

BP has so far paid 21 billion US dollars (13.5 billion) for the clean-up operation and compensating individuals, businesses and governments. It has also reserved more than 40 billion US dollars (25.8 billion) to cover costs related to the sinking of the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig.

BP and Halliburton accuse each other of making critical mistakes that caused the blow-out of the well off the Louisiana coast in 2010.

The disaster killed 11 workers and caused millions of gallons of oil to be leaked into the Gulf of Mexico, killing wildlife, polluting waters and shattering fisheries and tourism along the coasts of Texas, Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida.
