Withdrawing our troops from Iraq doesn't mean we "lost" anything.
Note to McCain- when you kill their ruler and take his castle, you'v won. Saddam is dead and his palace is our new embassy.
I'm sorry the best you could do was a wiener hut in Ohio while America's future was speaking to the world from Berlin. That is where your leader, George W. Bush has taken you, your party and the ideas you represent.
The rest of us aren't buying it anymore. Sorry. When you speak I hear the buzz of insects. Please stop.
The age of corporate welfare is over. Take heed. Change is coming and you aren't going to like it. You've pushed America to the wall and we're biting back now.
We will solve our own energy problems without big Oil, if that's what it will take as you've now made it affordable to develop alternate and renewable sources of energy.
We will not allow you to drill off our coasts, just because. And we will not allow you to manipulate us with the price of gas to change that.
There is enough oil in shale rock to change the planet, there is no need to take a chance on destroying our coastline and the delicate ecosystem of the ocean when we have an alternative. And we won't tolerate being manipulated.
Government, remember, we own you. Not vice versa. And it is the government that owns the shale oil. It's time to tell government what we want.
This government has failed us. It is time to rebuild governmnet with service to the many as its goal. Service to the few is not working so well anymore.
The problem with trickle down economics is that you assume we are happy with a trickle. You are wrong.
Get ready for a new day.
Wake up America. The shale oil is yours, not "theirs."
Maybe it's time for the government to compete with private industry to produce what we need to meet our energy needs. Private industry has failed us.

My God, while they were worrying Billy might actually marry Bob the rest of us were getting fucked.
Seems like their politics of fear is coming after us one by one.
Just what more needs to be said?
No wonder the Nazis got away with the Holocaust. We are a country of douche bag conservative, tobacco chewing, nascar racing hicks whose idea of higher education is 3 credits at community college after being rejected by the University of Phoenix.
What's it going to take to dismantle this freakshow? The 2nd Amendment?
I'm buying a gun today.

What wasn't profitable at $25-40 a barrel is mind numbingly simple at $147. Just the threat of bringing this supply to the market might create some relief, perhaps down to a level where it's not profitable to produce. But no one is talking about this. And you, with the loudest mouth and highest criticism of anyone with whom you don't agree should have jumped on this...but you were too busy engaginig in self promotion to actually make the "best news team on the planet" actually do their jobs. By the way? If "the best news team on the planet" had been doing their jobs for the last eight years we might not be in the sorry state we're in. So how about doing some homework and presenting some solutions instead of trying to sell books and xenophic ideas?

Shell seems to care. Exxon doesn’t. Exxon shut down its Colony Oil Shale project in May of 1982. Imagine having so much oil we could tell the assholes of the world to go fuck themselves. The entire geopolitical landscape would change.
Most of our shale reserves are under the control of the U.S. government since a Congressional act in 1910, the Pickett Act, authorized President Taft to set aside oil bearing land in California and Wyoming as fuel sources for the Navy. From 1910 to 1925 the Navy developed the Naval Petroleum and Oil Shale Reserves Program and it became official in 1927. Roosevelt expanded the program in 1942 as we mobilized for WWII.
So where do we stand today? Maybe it’s time to make Congress earn their paychecks.

The fact that most of our own people think the Flintstones are a documentary, the earth is less than 10,000 years old and that we were created by a designer shows how dangerous our lives have really become. Especially when there’s a country that not only wants to kill us but has told us so, told us how, told us when and told us why. And we attacked the country next door.
Chicken Little only gets one chance to get it right. W got it wrong. Now when we are going to have to respond to the danger Iran wants to become, how able will we to make the right decision? That nation is going to have to be delivered a reality check because they are insane. They believe the 12th Imam has been hiding since the 13th century and will reappear in the third year of chaos to bring about the end of the world as we know it. They’re dangerous whack jobs as opposed to the other whack jobs on the planet who base their actions on pleasing the figments of twisted imaginations.
This cannot end well.

So for those who have forgotten the issue, let's revisit the whole Iraq thing. OK?
We won the war. Got that red voters? Even your leader told us so when he proclaimed, "Mission Accomplished." But I call winning when a country invades, takes your castle, kills your king and takes your treasure. I believe we did that. Except the treasure thing. We've never been a country that cared much about treasure. Probably because we give ours away.
Anyway, for those who are trying to confuse the American people as they try to vote for change. We won the war. We are losing the peace.
And, like Vietnam, it is once again the fault of politicians and not the soldiers.
And John McCain should know that.
So if your going to spin, please do so in time with the music, otherwise you end up looking like that guy above.

Whether your vision of Jesus is the more traditional imaginary one of the soulful face with long hair, beard and expecting eyes,
the more accurate picture of him as a real man of his time, place and culture.
------------ONE QUESTION HAS ALWAYS INTRIGUED ME
We have the Book of Matthew, the Book of Mark, the Book of Luke and the Book of John, plus scads of other works apocryphal, anecdotal, etc. BUT
there is NO Book of Jesus.
Why is that?
Why did the most influential man on the planet leave nothing but hearsay behind?
And if something sounds stupid it generally isn't true.
So it's probably not true that Jesus left no written works behind.
That means whatever was left behind was destroyed.
The ramifications are truly staggering.
