    a google search away. even the unions are ("officially") disavowing these guys.
    but still not nation wide, it didn't make headline news, so you lie...

    so let's be clear. you agree with the nutjobs that Palin bears even an iota of responsibility for the shooting of Rep Giffords?

    What do you have against people being free to walk out of their homes, pull the car out of their garage and drive to their destination, independent of socialized transportation?
    and none of your fears will be realized....mass transit works well only in densely populated areas, not where the population is just dense....

    I agree that Palin and others should not use imflammatory rhetoric, or suggest that any other politician should be targeted in any way short of corruption probes. Seems that once one of YOUR favorite politicans is being "targeted", you don't like it much....

    31,000 Signatures Prove ‘No Consensus’ About Global Warming

    Robinson said that in recent years the U.N. and a group of 600 scientists, representing less than one percent of the scientific population, reached a “consensus” that global warming is happening. This has never been done before, Robinson insists.
    Dennis Avery, Director for the Center of Global Food Issues at the Hudson Institute, agrees with Robinson. “Nobody can do science by a committee. You do science by testing,” said Avery. “To me it is appalling that an international organization of the stature of the U.N. would ignore the evidence of past climate changing.”
    The signers of Robinson’s petition, including 9,000 Ph.Ds, all have one thing in common. They believe that human rights are being taken away.
    When the U.N. and others want to limit hydrocarbons, which account for 85% of the current United States energy supplies, the consequences are disastrous, Robinson said.

    I disagree. We are supposed to have a healthy nation, and we are supposed to have a Surgeon General to oversee us. You want couch potatoes? You got it!! A guy can't even make his work station without a handful of pills and power drinks. Pathetic!!
    I've never seen anything approaching the bile and vitriol we've seen out of the left in the past few years. republians still try to police their extremes - democrats have largely embraced them.



    You having a lapse a memory, or is this your first year in polly 101? Impeachment, being made "Resident" of WH, gays, WMDs, invading Sovereign Nation.
    as a matter of fact i do not.



    now, the last time i checked - the only thing Republicans ever pulled the "with us or against us" card was a world-wide war against Islamist fundamentalism. not their domestic political opponents.



    indeed it well. the Ryan budget gives me hope.
    Was that before or after he stole all our rights and needed a means to divide the nation in order stop descent for his Holy War in Iraq?

    like the "overpopulation" people whose static models uncontestably prove to us that over a quarter of the population of the earth should have starved to death in the 1980's, the Peak Oil folks are a crowd operating on failed assumptions who refuse to go away. We've been "about to hit peak oil" since 1894 (not a mistype) - yet we keep finding new reserves or developing new technology to exploit reserves that were previously unaccessible. I realize this is Catawaba's thing - but you need to realize that he's sort of the energy equivalent of the End-The-Fed-And-Reinstate-The-Gold-Standard crowd.

    Let's just drill every resource we have out of the ground and wallow around it in ASAP because we're all a bunch of fat, lazy bastards that aren't happy unless they can fill up their 30-gallon tank that gets 8-miles per gallon for 30 bucks."
    we have more oil in the Rockies alone than Saudi Arabia has. Add to that our huge deposits running along both coasts and ANWR? we are the worlds' biggest idiots for not tapping them.

    Those kinds of resources do not exist
    actually the US has the largest energy reserves in the world.

    we cannot get to the resources fast enough to do what you want
    tomorow? probably not. We also can't pay down the debt by next year. Guess we should just continue to ramp up spending, and have ever expanding deficits as far as the eye can see, eh? i mean, heck, if we can't solve a problem in less than 6 months, then it's just not worth solving.

Four years later, she had come back and they remarried and happily raised their four daughters. But in a campaign she would be brutalized by left-wing mud-slingers. I can understand why he wouldn't want to expose his wife to them.
    If he is as good as you say, then she needs to do it for the country.
    What she did doesn't sound all that bad. If he was willing to forgive her and they put the family back together, that's a good thing.
