    this is incorrect. people are the source of innovation and growth. most companies have no problem reducing their costs, and personnel are often the largest single cost that's true.

    none of which has any relevance on the fact that firings are often a last resort, not a first one. productivity is increased through efficiency, not loss of production.

    If you are interested in educating yourself, you can read a fact sheet on the President's Energy Plan here:

    Here educate yourself on the Carter Doctrine.

    Oh come on man....What the hell do you expect in a political forum. Sometimes you people really amaze me in the leaps and back bending exercises you pull off. Partisan? of course it is. I got a hint for ya, if it weren't this site would fail. It would be NO fun at all. You get mad at someone's partisanship, when in all the years I have been contributing to these sites I have been consistent in my beliefs, and approach. To the point of never changing my name so that people know exactly who I am. Can you say the same Mr. Case? Mr. Independent? Mr. Moderate? Or what ever affiliation you hide your belief system behind?

    Carter was a disaster. I lived through his misery, and hope to never see that crap again. So, instead of hold up for the moment the WORST President to ever fart in that chair, go back and study where the country was at that time with honest eyes, if you can, and then call someone partisan....What a joke.

    So, what lean is Tucker? Whenever I've noticed him, he was supporting the free market; I don't recall other standpoints.

    He can be confusing. I think for the most part he does support a free market, but there are times I guess when mass media liberal creep gets in and he follows the general talking point. For the most part I leave him alone unless he makes an incredible statement about me like he did earlier...

    I mean really, I'm partisan? I didn't know that.

    not the same as his energy plan, poor attempt at divesion....people who cannot admit that Carter was right about needing an energy plan are too indoctrinated by the GOP to think for themselves...

    So? What does that have to do with his energy plan that Reagan scrapped as soon as he took office to protect oil company profits. The fact is Carter came up with a comprehensive energy plan that was beginning to work. Rightwing nut jobs ignore that fact and still claim he was the worst president ever. The worst president ever was the one that abandoned the energy plan and is responsible for the energy mess we are in today.
