    why has the united states senate failed to publish a budget in SEVEN HUNDRED DAYS?

    why has hurryup harry failed to move, up, down or sideways, on hr1 which he's been sitting on for months?

    where's the president's proposal to tax the rich or go after big oil, why has his ACTION been confined to making great speeches, excellent speeches, instead of producing LEGISLATION?

    what's up with gitmo, civilian trials, the patriot act, detention, rendition, the prosecution of the cia?

    why doesn't the slasher talk anymore about the stimulus, his health care bill, his reg reform?

    what's changed since november when americans rewarded the party of no with the most house seats since 1938, most state reps and assemblies in history, 10 gubs, 6 senators?

    That's only if you believe the destruction of the economy of the United States is a good thing.

    The Mayor believes it's not good, no, not at all. The government is artificially stifling the market by shutting down oil exploration and exploitation and refining in this country.

    No, they didn't. Most of the people who voted for Obama were voting for skin color and teleprompter reading skills. They're too ignorant to know what was wrong with the economy, and hence too ignorant to know what they were voting for, and why.


    why has the united states senate failed to publish a budget in SEVEN HUNDRED DAYS?
    Because Obama has more important things to deal with, like showing off his fresh-ink birth certificate and rushing off to tape an Oprah show and attend fund raisers.

    And he manages to squeeze that important stuff in-between the essential golf matches the Constitution says he must perform.

    in TIMES LIKE THESE, shouldn't americans expect A PLAN?

    leadership, anyone?

    Shhh....he's trying to improve that hook....his balls don't go anywhere near far enough to the left...

    whatever happened to global warming and international climate accords?
    Obama's listening to Led Zeppelin's The Lemon Song, and he wants to be America's "back door man". He's trying to get the EPA to impose by unlegislated regulation what he can't get done by Congress. The people watch Congress, the EPA ignores the people.

    buses, trains, and the like are only viable options for select, heavily urbanized areas. for the vast majority of the nation they are simply impractical.

    how about (i know, this is crazy) letting people decide for themselves what is the best or cheapest way for them to aquire transportation to get to where they want to go?

    Wal Mart does exactly what Liberal government claims it will do. It is one reason they hate it so. They expose a giganormous chasm between reality and rhetoric.

    So far I've yet to see a viable alternative. So let's just stop seeking out fossil fuels and focus on these half-assed alternatives, right? An electric car that can only go 40 miles at 50MPH after an 8 hour charge. My, how efficient. And how exactly is that electricity being made, again? Wind is only 50% efficient, wave energy continues to struggle, solar ain't cuttin' it yet, either.

    And those mileage estimates are under ideal conditions. Just wait until you get stuck in a snowstorm for 24-hours.

    Wind is largely a government subsidized joke... all these alternatives require government handouts to get some production, and none can run industry. Oil, gas, coal and nukes can.

    Perhaps one day Lithium batteries or something similar will assist and make solar useful with energy storage/capture, but the other stuff is a pipe dream. Good for keeping a fridge running perhaps, but little more.

    McCain's an idiot. Scroll down and check out the pictures and maps of ANWR. The ones that environmentalists show and where the actual drilling is are a sharp contrast.

    You know oil and gas companies received billions of dollars a year in subsidies right? Both in the US and Canada? Why the hell do we do that when they're making billions a quarter in profits?

    Arguing that renewables aren't efficient enough or that they'll ruin the economy is avoiding the fact that eventually oil and gas WILL be gone. If we don't prepare for that day we'll really be up a creek without a paddle when it happens. Then the economy will crash and we won't be able to go anywhere because of our short-sightedness and lack of planning. It's ridiculous.
