Ohio Slipping Out Of Romney's Reach

The most backwards people in developed civilization... " lmao, so true. Just as funny is the saving of the fetuses only to deny them any help in the future if they were to need it. lol sad hypocrites, voting against their own self interests.  (Nov 2, 2012 | post #2014)

Poll: Obama, Romney in dead heat

I'd MUCH RATHER, trust a guy that lied clearly because he didn't want to his wife to find out. Clinton left the office and the country with a SURPLUS. As opposed to trusting a guy whose position on almost every issue changes. Issues, that'll directly have an impact on me.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #840)

Poll: Obama, Romney in dead heat

http://whatthefuck hasobamadonesofar. com/ I'd say otherwise, in that, the economy is improving now. In fact, it's doing well enough that regardless of who is in office next term, Moody's is predicting 12 million jobs in 4years. Oh wait, isn't that what Romney is predicting he will do? What a smart guy. http://www.washing tonpost.com/blogs/ election-2012/wp/2 012/10/16/fact-che ck-romneys-12-mill ion-jobs/  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #819)

....annnnd.... OH AND BTW, "clean coal" is a myth, it's nothing more than something construed by the billionaire Koch brothers no doubt. Simply to make it sound environmentally sound and friendly when in fact, it's not. http://www.treehug ger.com/corporate- responsibility/the re-is-no-such-thin g-as-clean-coal.ht ml "But in a process being used increasingly across the nation, chemicals are injected into plants' emissions to capture airborne pollutants. That, in turn, changes the composition of the ash and cuts its usefulness. It can't be used in cement, for example, because the interaction of the chemicals may keep the concrete from hardening." Are we thinking about bridge replacement and repair using coal ash as an amendment to concrete? Because if we are, we better think twice. "That ash has to go somewhere - so it usually ends up in landfills, along with the rest of the unusable waste. "You're replacing an air problem with a land problem - a disposal problem," said Bruce Dockter, a research engineer with the Energy and Environmental Research Center at the University of North Dakota... And the chemicals added to clean up emissions - such as ammonia, lime and calcium hydroxide - make the ash worse, environmental groups say, because they take toxins such as mercury out of the air but leave higher levels of it in the ash." ANNNNND, just recently... ask some Tennesseans if they believe clean coal exists. http://www.time.co m/time/health/arti cle/0,8599,1870599 ,00.html The "clean coal" campaign was always more PR than reality — currently there's no economical way to capture and sequester carbon emissions from coal, and many experts doubt there ever will be. But now the idea of clean coal might be truly dead, buried beneath the 1.1 billion gallons of water mixed with toxic coal ash that on Dec. 22 burst through a dike next to the Kingston coal plant in the Tennessee Valley and blanketed several hundred acres of land, destroying nearby houses. The accident — which released 100 times more waste than the Exxon Valdez disaster — has polluted the waterways of Harriman, Tenn., with potentially dangerous levels of toxic metals like arsenic and mercury, and left much of the town uninhabitable. YAA, clean coal, good PR work by those who make billions from it. - ie - KOCH BROTHERS.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #48)

OldWhitey, you're listening too much to Romney throwing out sound bites that aren't true, or maybe it's Faux News? But, here's a link for you and it'll tell you the ACTUAL failure rate. http://money.cnn.c om/2012/10/22/news /economy/obama-ene rgy-bankruptcies/i ndex.html A total of five have gone bankrupt, according to the House Committee on Energy and Commerce. All of the failed companies that the Committee identified came from just two programs that received significant dollar amounts from the Department of Energy. Those two programs funded 63 firms. The other 58 are still in business. That's a failure rate of about 8%. (for someone like yourself who claims to be an "independent ", you sure do quote whatever you hear from the guy on the CONservative is saying) Well if that's the case, I certainly can't imagine you who claim you're an independent would be voting for Romney then. After all, he does want to give the military spending a huge boost of TRILLIONS of dollars for money that they're not even asking for. Where's that going to come from? Imagine that money spent elsewhere? Like ohhhh, GREEN ENERGY research? Sounds like China has the U.S. beat and that's without a shot being fired, incredible. They may refuse to, but at the same time, they're re-investing in the future techie, sciency stuff that many on the right believe isn't too reliable. Especially the Bible thumpers, science, bad, religion good... *science only good when they're sick and THEN they run to see a doctor and get medication, treatments vis-a-vis sciencey related stuff*  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #47)

RIGHT, BUT, there are some things that even at the Federal level, Christie would require help from them at some point, especially because of the magnitude of this disaster. I'll quote you something from FEMA Director, Fugate, who worked in Flordia under Jeb Bush. This is his how he views FEMA and I suspect he has a better understand than most. But as Fugate explained on Tuesday, this is exactly how FEMA already works. "We're a federal government; we're not a national government," he said "Disasters are local. Through state constitutions, the governors are the primary incident commanders for the entire state response in support of that. And the role of the federal government is to support the states when the disaster exceeds their capabilities. And when it's this bad, we work as one team. But we are in support of the governors, as they are in support of the local officials. It's a federal system of government." Understand now?  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #44)

Ohio Slipping Out Of Romney's Reach

I love how Romeny claims he saved the Olympics, when all he did was keep asking the FEDERAL government (the government he keeps crapping on) for MORE AND MORE MONEY. He got $600 million from the FEDERAL government to help "save" the Olympics. You give me $600 million and I'll save whatever you want me to save. Plus another $1.1 billion for INFRASTRUCTURE which had already been planned in Utah, but the Olympics gave it a reason to speed the process up. So ANYONE could have saved the Olympics, all they had to do was ask the FEDS' for moooooore $$$$$. But in Mitt's eyes, the Feds are baaad. But they're good enough to ask money from. lol  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #1808)

Yet Chris Christie is MORE THAN GRATEFUL to get help from the Federal Government when it's clearly needed. The State can certainly help with disaster relief, but when it becomes too big, then what? When the scope of the problem is more than a State can handle, what will the State do then? Knock on the door of the State beside it asking for help? In the meantime, action has to be taken immediately and people, animals, property are in need of aid? The FEDERAL government can help greatly in that it can muster the resources MUCH more faster than if it were just at the State level. The Federal government knows where to get whatever is being asked of them by the State and cut through the wait time. You just need capable people running the show. http://thinkprogre ss.org/politics/20 12/10/30/1112851/w hy-the-federal-gov ernment-should-han dle-disaster-relie f/  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #39)

OldWhitey, coal is OldBlacky technology. Green is where the future is at. It's time to MOVE ON... Not only is it detrimental to the environment, it'll be EXTREMELY DETRIMENTAL to the economy. When you have CHINA, the world's SECOND largest economy, to which the U.S. is in debt too btw, when you have them investing BILLIONS upon BILLIONS in green technology and the U.S. is at a stand still because CONS-ervatives want to protect their rich oil and coal friend's from losing billions and fighting Obama and ANYONE who suggests green is the alternative, it's COUNTER PRODUCTIVE. The U.S. will lag behind China in the future, then become dependent on other countries who have invested in green technology years ahead of everyone else. It's not hard to draw that conclusion if you think about it. Here are some links. CHINA http://www.bbc.co. uk/news/business-1 4201939 GERMANY http://www.investm entu.com/2012/May/ green-energy-virtu al-power-plants.ht ml INDIA http://www.guardia n.co.uk/environmen t/2012/feb/03/indi a-green-energy-gro wth To name a few. It's either LEAD, FOLLOW, or get out of the way. In years to come, the U.S. will be behind everyone else if alternative energy investments are NOT MADE. Coal and gas are NOT infinite sources of energy. Wind, thermal, hydro, solar can be if the money is pumped into SCIENCE and RESEARCH for it.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #38)
