quote: I bet that it'd also be more efficient if the government didn't give the 2 cent subsidy to oil and gas companies and taxed gas 33 cents instead of 35 cents. Prices would stay the same and the process would eliminate some unnecessary government positions.
quote: Also, CAFE is a crock. Everyone know that gas prices aren't going down, there is no need for a government mandate for more fuel efficient vehicles, the gas prices will take care of that. Every car manufacturer is already trying to make their cars as efficient as they can and it's not because of CAFE, but because consumers want efficient vehicles.
quote: shows the sad state of GOP.
quote: If the GOP is in a sad state, this article is a perfect example of where the Democrats have their priorities. Gas prices, unemployment, and economic growth ALL terrible under their rule. And what do they waste their time doing? Crap like CAFE, de-funding social security with a payroll tax election year stunt, and trying to force Churches to provide birth control for free. Man those are REALLY important considering where our country is heading let me tell ya.
quote: Yet another excellent example of the parallel universe the libs live in. Bush evil. Bad wars. Rove and Cheney devils. Oil VERY bad. Pipelines bad. Crony capitalism good (for the moment). People who go to certain churches bad. Public funding of abortion good.
quote: country in the world agreed with.
quote: Hundreds of other countries "didn't go in there". So what? Is a military action only justifiable if the ENTIRE world agrees
quote: A. US invasion of Iraq was a "war of aggression
quote: The only time war is acceptable is in defense
quote: Iraq was very aggressive against Kuwait. There was a war. They lost the war and agreed to certain UN terms. They repeatedly broke those agreements, knowingly committed hostile acts like breaking the "No Fly Zone". A HOSTILE act. And other such violations. A second war, given this behavior, was inevitable. When you don't comply with agreed on treaties and UN sanctions, eventually a military response happens. When you don't allow UN weapons inspectors do their job, one assumes you have something to hide.
quote: 1. Iraq was NEVER a threat to the US
quote: You have no clue how horrible war is and how it should be avoided at all costs.
quote: And you do. Please regale me with all your first hand experience.
quote: I immigrated to the USA from Bosnia in 1995, does that count, you a-hole?
quote: I suggest you abandon them.
quote: Sending some flights over the country to help the rebels in the civil war
quote: Not only do you have NOTHING but contempt for this nation and uphold it with every post you make
quote: Maybe those Serbs had the right idea after all.
quote: I love this country more than you do bud.
quote: Where do you get that I hate this country?
quote: Unlike you, I have seen the horrors of war and what religion does.
quote: There we go folks, all conservatives are Nazis
quote: I do and I know it could be much much better than it currently is with the right choices.
quote: pass a national healthcare mandate in the constitution
quote: Also your religious comments are abhorrent given the fact that America was built on religious rights and freedoms as much as any other principle.
quote: No, you've seen the horrors of what morons and their false extremist take on Islam can do. Bosnia is not America, and what happened there could NEVER happen here.
quote: No one is denying anyone birth control for fucks sake. Anyone with a brain just is saying that employers shouldn't be REQUIRED to pay for it 100%!
quote: bible-thumping right-wing racist bigots
quote: Well, if you look at it that way, I don't think employers should have to pay for any healthcare for anyone. It should be just like Europe and Canada, but since we don't have that, the next best thing is employer provided coverage.
quote: Europe and Canada have it wrong, people should be paying for their own healthcare not government.
quote: .but anything government is evil you say
quote: I see America as a nation with great potential as the number of people like you sufficiently decrease over time and religion loses its influence.
quote: What does that even mean? Great potential?
quote: First off, you have no idea what people "like me" are, you simply call us names as if it were facts.
quote: Secondly our best times are clearly behind us,
quote: And these are the people who are first to point at our "failing" Healthcare system on one hand, while on the other forcing insurance companies to cover 100% of birth control, plastic surgeries, boobjobs and other elective procedures.
quote: In that context everything is health related.
quote: I mean come on Liberals, I was buying condoms by the truckload when I had a minimum wage job flipping burgers!
quote: So now birth control is a basic medical necessity? Are you fucking kidding me?!?!
quote: trying to force Churches to provide birth control for free.
quote: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;
quote: Everyone know that gas prices aren't going down, there is no need for a government mandate for more fuel efficient vehicles, the gas prices will take care of that.
quote: While 35+ cents go to taxes.
quote: If only 35 cents per gallon goes to the government in the USA, then I really don't think you have a lot to complain about. In New Zealand 59.129 cents per litre of petrol goes to our government. From what I've heard, it is worse in Europe.
quote: sorry but families of more than 4 don't fit into a Camry. Even then its tight for long trips.
quote: As the article makes note, cheap vehicles will disappear
quote: This is nothing short of government regulation deciding what vehicles will be built. Because in a world of these standards, large vehicles either don't exist or are too expensive for most to afford. And sorry but families of more than 4 don't fit into a Camry. Even then its tight for long trips.
quote: Um you're against the FDA?
