Gas was highest it ever was under George Bush.

Intelligent people know the POTUS has no control over the pricewof gas.

Duh!
As a supplemental fund for retirement, 401Ks have long been supported by consumers and organized labor, union and non union for 35 years. As a primary retirement vehicle it's not performing well after the 2008 financial debacle created by the hands off over sight gang of the Bush Administration.

You're ignoring a few details surrounding sequestration. 95% of the deal is what Boehner negotiated, he received it and the Republicans raised the borrowing limit in exchange for sequestration.

The Republicans negotiated, after holding the nation hostage for sequestration, now somehow it's Obama's sequestration...... ha, when has the republicans accepted any proposal on any issue that's come from Obama in his 4 years?

Somalia doesn't need a military, they aren't at odds with any one outside of the borders of Somalia. Limited Government, and less oversight for businesses to abide by there. You can get in on the ground floor, there's not even a minimum wage there.

Again you aren't making sense. Somalia suffers from NO Military protection for their citizens. That is more of an Obamacrat thing. The Obamacrats demand for deep cuts in the Defense Budget in their portion of the Sequestration.
Obamacrats want to us all to ignore the FACT that National Security and Maintaining our Nation's Border Integrity was supposed to be the main reason for creating the Federal Govt in the first place not Class Warfare and "Social Engineering" which is their obsession.

Blocking drilling on government land does raise the price. We then need to import more oil and with the dollar dropping against other currency raises the price at the pumps. Maybe if you spent less time on Topix spouting stupidity, you could spend the time learning just how stupid you sound.

Oh, I see. You are too scared to live in a free society. You have to have the government come to your house every night before you go to sleep, to look under the bed to make sure no Al Qaeda are waiting for you to doze off.

If you want that service, you pay for it. I bet you could buy it in Somalia cheaper than here, and you wouldn't have any thing else to pay for, like roads, or clean water.

U.S. median household income up 4% at end of 2011
By Paul Davidson, USA TODAY
Updated 2/9/2012 8:32 PM
After falling steadily since the recession began four years ago, household income appeared to turn the corner by rising sharply the last four months of 2011.
By Mark Wilson, Getty Images
Inflation-adjusted median household income increased 4%, from $49,434 to $51,413, from August to December, according to a study released Thursday by Sentier Research. That's the biggest jump since the start of the recession in December 2007, according to an analysis of Labor Department data by the economic research firm.
Hey moron, the average income 10 years ago was $75,000. Do your fuzzy math all you want. Unless the average income is $75k today, our incomes are decreasing. Even the idiots on the right admit as much. Gawd you people are STUPID.

There have been 473 civilians killed in Pakistan and Somila due to drone attacks. That includes 73 children. When is the left going to want to ban drones.

The left and the right will never ban drones. It's the weapon of the future and will save countless soldiers lives. It's a win/win. As for the children who died in Pakistan, they were more than likely future terrorists who would have been taught to hate us in their Madrassahs. Seriously, your sympathy is misguided. No one in Pakistan or Afghanistan shed one f-ing tear on 9/11. Neither should you for the deaths of their citizens who HATE US.

They hate us because we have interfered in their internal affairs for a long time. We have killed many people in foreign lands. On top of it, there is a growing amount of people in America who are Islamic in faith. They will be a powerful force in a number of years. And are much more adherent to ways we are not used to.

PS: He has posted more *under just the Dumbo alias* than me since I have posted- under my one alias.
