Oh it is blatantly obvious she is no "wealthy business owner". She's too stupid. She reeks of stupidity and ignorance. I have to go with your assessment, she is some welfare queen. Likely uses those weekly checks for her malt liquor and crack, and trades her food stamps for lottery tickets.
You still sniffing farts?

As far as my gender, I've never disclosed it. It's irrelevant. As far as everything else, it's the truth whether you like it or not, but I see that for you the truth is irrelevant. Karl Rove loves you.

It's amazing how cunning the Republican frightwingers are. Moreover, Why should we use our tax dollars (or worse yet, a loan from the Chinese loansharks) to pay BP to clean it's own mess or to hire Halliburton to do it? We all know the fascist Supreme Court will reduce any damages BP will have to rightfully pay. Why can't the free market solve the problem? What is it
about "capitalism" the requires government bailouts for companies to be successful? Why do we have to privatize profits and socialize losses???? Where are all the honest libertarians?

Back when Bush was in office, she was out of work and complaining. Then low and behold shortly after the Messiah's coronation, she was a small business owner, employing people, creating jobs and rich. Absolutely giddy to be a supporter of Obama's hellcare and pay the enormous taxes associated with that stupid bill. Made herself to look like she actually had "skin in the game". POSER!!!!!!!!!
BS. I've spent very little time in my life unemployed and never collected unemployment or welfare. I've been self-employed for years. Instead of speculating and posting out of your ass, why not deal with facts? The Reagan/BUSH era is dead. It died from the obsolescence of the failed policies. Americans have evolved. There is the internet now. Republicans don't control ALL the media. It's not about me. It's about your failed ideology.

I KNOW why the war wasn't illegal....Think you should educate yourself and find out on your own.
Wait...I think I hear your Mom...Dinner time!
It was illegal because it was based on LIES, plain and simple.

CREATED by a private for-profit multinational corporation, in the business of oil drilling. The government is not in the oil-drilling business. Why should we use our tax dollars (or worse yet, a loan from the Chinese loansharks) to pay BP to clean it's own mess or to hire Halliburton to do it? We all know the fascist Supreme Court will reduce any damages BP will have to rightfully pay. Why can't the free market solve the problem? It's the East India Company (BP)'s EXXON Valdez. You are a commie.
Whos saying that BP wouldnt or wont cover the cost?

No, B P wanted the help the Dutch Government offered, and the idiot in chief refused to allow it. Now 52 days later He, the Messiah, is accepting their help. The man is a total moron. This thing will still be gushing November 2nd, and it will cost the Democrats dearly in lost seats in Congress.
