You're not looking at this right. I assume you are posting to make a point - so posting a link will give your point the weight it needs to have an effect. We all read, we can go Googling after your every post - but we likely won't. It's for your sake as well as others, it gives you credibility, puts the judgment on the article instead of you.
Plus, it's a matter of courtesy on these threads.

She reminds me so much of Torchwood. The constant threats to my employer, the stalking allegations and it's funny becuase she comes here and maintains a dialogue with you and like clockwork begins to cry stalking when she's getting called out on her BS. Then she starts with crap like, "my brother is a police officer" bla bla bla drivel.

Have you seen the way she stalks that guy Juan from Pearland, TX???

I mean seriously, she likes to dish it but cannot take it.

Typical troll.

A political career failure.
In 2000, George W. Bush lost the popular vote to Al Gore. Bush became president not only because the Supreme Court awarded him Florida but also because sparsely populated Western states, from the Dakotas through the Rockies and up to Alaska, boosted his Electoral College total.

Good grief....

If you think that the USA getting only 12.9% of our total oil from the middle east is considered "being dependent on Islamic nations then I have a bridge to sell you for a good price.

The USA receives:

38.8% from the USA

19.6% from Latin America

15% from Canada

10.3% from Africa

3% from "other"

Augusta company to offer private health insurance exchange

An Augusta company is hooking up with a national company offering a private health insurance exchange model that allows employees to choose their own health plan, much the way public health exchanges will work under the federal health care overhaul beginning in 2014.

Ironically, Liazon was financed in part by Bain Capi­tal, the company co-founded by Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who has vowed to repeal the reforms and do away with the exchanges.

Your numbers are a tad off. Last year Bush in office lost 4.43 million jobs. With a spiraling down of 750,000 per month of increasing unemployment new filings. Giving him a grand total of 10 million jobs lost. Obama is at 4.3 million created. Much easier to destroy than create as any republican knows.

Rushing Rove Foxy troll, You’re a tad off on this fuel issue. Lets do a brief history. Bush took office gas at $1.74 oil at $16 per barrel.
Bush invades Iraq; Gas goes to $5 oil goes to $145 per barrel.
After election of 2008 Nov. Bush opens Flood gates on emergency National oil reserves. Price drops but only for temporary. National Oil Reserves closed their gates. Prices start to rise. Obama invest in more oil rigs to start drilling, Drilling for Natural Gas accelerates and Green energy. Mostly for R&D development. Which is exploding with new innovations as markets are being developed to consume them and reduce our need for oil and gas.
Presently we are at $3.70 for gas. Obama suggested we open the Emergency National Oil reserves which republicans immediately shot down. So here we are. Myself I’m in the process of getting my first Electric Vehicle and acquiring the solar panels to make the fuel. Savings in fuel alone will pay for panels and vehicle at no cost to me! Can I take another four years of OBAMA? You Betsa.. More if we could. http://youtu.be/5WT1Vwlfyms

Whistle-Blower Lawyers Throw Support Behind Obama
By ERIC LIPTON
Published: October 1, 2012

By ERIC LIPTON
Attorneys who represent whistle-blowers have made millions as the Obama administration cracks down on corporate fraud, and are now donating heavily to the president's re-election campaign.

The single biggest fund-raiser is John Morgan, a Florida-based lawyer. He has collected more than $1.7 million for Mr. Obama’s re-election or for the Democratic National Committee, making him one of the campaign’s biggest bundlers nationwide. He has also raised money for Elizabeth Warren, the Massachusetts Democrat running for the United States Senate. Ms. Warren served as interim head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, also created as part of the Dodd-Frank law.
Mr. Morgan, in an interview, said his support for Mr. Obama and Ms. Warren was entirely motivated by his admiration for their leadership in Washington. But his fund-raising blitz occurred just as he was expanding his personal injury and trial law practice into the whistle-blower field, with a television advertising campaign and new Web site, named whistle-blower-attorneys.com .
“America is full of crooks who are defrauding the government and investors every day,” Mr. Morgan said.“We are talking about billions of dollars in ill-gotten gains. We win one case and it will pay for our entire national advertising budget.”

Romney and all republicans seek to stop Obama from exposing their corruptions. While their fines go to the Fed and the gratitude of our citizens goes to Obama. Doing as he said. Holding their feet to the fire!

Corporations have gained 22% since Obama stopped the spiraling losses to a recession. Some have experienced record profits. Ex. 2010 Record profiting top ten oil companies paid Zero taxes, received Multi-Millions in tax refunds each; Demanded Welfare payments {subsides} into the Multi-Billions. Remember the Hostage/ Ransom? Don’t pay their demands and they will SHUTDOWN our Main Street USA. Guess who are the owners are of these companies. Yup same one’s that have their taxes cut to less than14%.
Their rates are just fine where they are; actually we could just stop providing them with welfare for starters. Remember Ireland with their lowest corporate rates in the world and the companies moved out and they went bankrupt. Its not the tax rate that is the most pressing issue with corporatist. it’s the consumers and laborers’. The Middle Class. The Engine, dynamo, that breaks or makes a productive society.
Greatest harm to our Middle Class today is “Inequality”! Within the Western civilized world our inequality surpasses all of our competitors. Inequality promotes hoarding of liquidity {wealth} to a small focused segment of our society. Once liquidity has reached a point that can no longer maintain our dynamo well lubricated it begins to sputter and stall.{Great Recession 2008} Redistribution of the lubricating liquidity is then required before engine seizes up.{Great Depression 1929}
Presently our distribution of liquidity is 1.2% receives 40% of nations supply. In 1929 it was 1% receiving 43% of the supply of liquidity. We are at the red line and redistribution is required.
Obama has tried to do just that. Obstruction from a “Party First” of a no, no, no, leadership has prevailed. Obama did what he could in the 6 months that democrat held power.{Kennedy Died} Brown {R} of Mass replaced him and the beginning of the record producing filibuster congress was initiated by the republicans. Infamous for their disregard for our USA.“Party First” was and is their autonomous. Their policies increases the forces that promotes inequality. Now is the time for redistribution. Anything less and well you know what happens when you starve an engine. No two ways about it. Take care of your engine and the engine will take care of you. Don’t take care of your engine and it will not take care of you…

Solyndra keeps popping up here and there. I fail to comprehend the hype that is associated to it. It was a failed investment. Get over it. How many failures have the oil , coal and nuclear energy sectors have Per Year? At what cost to taxpayers and consumers for their failures? There are always obstacles on a quest.
Observe did we throw up our hands up with every oil spill, coal mine disaster or radioactive catastrophes. Now consider that damage they have and are contributing to our nations Health and Security.
Toxic in their acquirements , production, storage and deliveries. Multibillions would be saved in health issues alone. Service infrastructure to a toxic energy source would be eliminated. Multibillions saved there as well.
Alternative energy require no fuel! Infrastructure cost to service is a fraction of a fraction of that of a toxic infrastructures. As well as the pollution factors.
At best it is naïve to focus on this one failure, when the rewards of clean abundant energy is simply here for the taking.
Obama’s investment into the R&D of alternative is beginning to blossom. Alternative energy is on a acceleration curve of technology growth. Imagine 40 years ago. We were with pencil, paper and a slide ruler and today we communicate with computers. Imagine what alternative energy will be with our technology focused on its development.
Suspect you already know this simple observation of the two energy sources. Toxic and non toxic. Shame on you….
