<quoted text>If I'm not mistaken gas dropped below $2.00 after Bush threatened to open the oil reserves, Obama has no intention to lower gas prices, actually I am surprised they are hovering around 3.00 and not a lot higher, he has mentioned high prices will force us to find some sort of alternative energy, So far all of his "green" BS has not worked, it is funny how the democrats blamed Bush for high prices and called him an oil man, but make up excuses that Obama has nothing to do with the high prices.
just proof the US was founded on Socialism and article 1 section clause 1 the very first power granted to congress the taxing power and higher prices means more tax money.

Drilling at record levels, gas prices reasonable, and oil and natural gas production reaching levels no one thought possible during the bush years.
And all of it is dispite Obama's assault on the fuel industry and coal industry. If Obama had his way, we would all be on the side of the road watching our Volts burn.

Socialism has nothing to do with taxes. Socialism is the production industry with full or partial governmental control or ownership, such as GM.

Who gives a damn what Mickleson thinks of the tax laws, or does with his career?
Sixty percent sounds about right to me. What's he complaining about, that he might only have ten houses and condos instead of 12 or 15??
He's a punk. If he won't pay his fair share, screw him. And you.
phil made about 50 mil last year, and the california portion of his taxes would have kept a bunch of illegal mexicans safe, warm and paid for their welfare for a long time. Who will pay when Phil leaves the state?

What happened to the massive anti-Obama rally that was supposed to be held yesterday 1/21/13?
Even Fox doesn't have a story about it.

What EVERY President and member of Congress SHOULD be focused on is the nation, and how it interacts wih the rest of the world. ANYTHING else is a violation of their oaths to serve.
and you think something spawned by the Chicago political machine has concerns for something like an oath to serve, fat chance.

yes socialism does because in socialism the government is moderately involved in economical activity(Sherman Anti-Trust Act) where as capitalism the is no government involvement in economical activity besides everything is privately own & Controlled and there is no such things as public roads, schools, Social Securty, EPA, FDA which are funded by society through taxes which Capitalism reject.

In this article, you'll explore capitalism: its roots, principles and effects, benefits and shortcomings. We'll find out how capitalism compares to the alternative method of doing business. Incidentally, the United States doesn't actually practice capitalism. No one does these days.

Today, the economies of nations that are typically referred to as capitalist are in fact mixed economies -- they incorporate certain aspects of capitalism and certain aspects of planed economies. In pure capitalism, things like child labor laws, Social Security, anti-discriminatory hiring practices and a minimum wage have no place. Capitalism rejects all government intervention in economic matters.

<quoted text> This was a good post but I don't think that the mulatto messiah is quite as resilient as some may think. I believe that we will see the already considerable pressure amped up on Obama by the Republican Congress who has dug their heels in and are determined to solidify Obama's lame duck status. The Congress has only begun to fight and time will prove them to be more tenacious than Obama. Perhaps this is a bit optimistic but I have a feeling about this one. With the country already racially and politically divided anyway, congress will go all-out to get him ousted. Expect some serious political hardball in the coming months.

The BenghaziDeception is looking more like the Fast&FuriousDeception. The US Ambassador was humiliated and Killed on her watch, this event was to create the excuse for the Blind Sheik Deal, they have found a new opportunity.

Sure, as soon as you can produce a liber, er, progressive who doesn't think if I object to Obama's policies I'm an America-hating racist, if I oppose tax hikes I hate the poor, if I object to abortion, I'm launching a war on women, and if I support traditional marriage, I hate gays.

Yes, I do. Must be why I become frustrated at the number of Obama supporters who buy into it. Then again, when the majority of main stream media outlets spread this propaganda daily, I'm not surprised.
