    Re: State of the Union Address

    After the speechy goosebumps wear off, most people eventually start lookin' around for evidence of American citizens becoming more prosperous.

    It's been three years of nothing .. so, heck, let's give it another six months.

    Pretty sure by then no neededly heroic prosperity-creating deeds will have been done.

    Then we can focus on electing the Repub candidate in November ..

    .. So he too can predictably repeat the same do-nothing-worthy behavior ..

    .. Complete with thrilling speechs.
    You don't trust Trump? Well, there's only one way to leverage him to do what's economically right for us all: Powerful American Political Alliance. Got courage?! .. and a mere $5.00?

And he's stated that natural gas, nuclear and clean coal are "clean energy" in the past. If that is what he opens up public lands for, screw 'em.
    Hes provided more funding for clean energy than any president in history during his first year!

    I liked the point about if a someone is getting a tax credit/break they DON'T NEED, then someone else is going to have to make up the difference.

    Second biggest: "I'm going to make sure that banks help people refinance their homes. They can save $3,000 a year through refinancing. Banks should be doing this to pay back the American people!!" Puke.

    That's a paraphrase, by the way. Here's the full text: TRANSCRIPT State of the Union 2012: President Obama's Full Speech as Prepared for Delivery - ABC News
    You know what he meant. And why do you want to puke about helping people refinance?

    True. But we also have fracking gone wild in the US.

    Yes!! $25 donation to DP!! Just to nail it down, from the transcript, this is exactly what he said:

    Now, you can call this class warfare all you want. But asking a billionaire to pay at least as much as his secretary in taxes? Most Americans would call that common sense.
