quote: "Remember History" -- Winston Churchill
quote: Currently, yes, we're doing okay -- by European standards. We're doing absolutely awful by our own standards, but if you want to lower us to sclerotic European standards, we're okay.
quote: Union's don't negotiate contracts based on CEO pay, that's not a factual data point, just a Occupy Wall Street talking point.
quote: Their stock exchanges are dominated by many of the same names that've been there for the last century. Get what you pay for
quote: The Senate gets work done without all of them actually sitting down on the floor of the Senate.
quote: If you think one of the goals of this Government should be to "get us off fossil fuels", of course you wouldn't vote for Romney. You're clearly a flaming ass Liberal.
quote: Roseanne Barr? Really?
quote: and voting for one of the two parties is a throw away vote? wow!
quote: to the country and the world over the past, oh, 30 years or so..
quote: Go ahead though, vote like your average Greek. I hear California gas prices are north of $5, some stations are running out; insufficient pipeline capacity. Gee, what a shocker.
quote: I don't think I've ever heard a fellow American say "toadies."
quote: And after all the whining about how we're fascists
quote: Next time Europe needs us, we might be busy.
quote: The average Libyan would tell you to STFU; if not for our fascist, militarist air and logistical support, they'd of been crushed like bugs.
quote: it was a war of self defense, if you remember they were protecting al Qaeda
quote: we also helped stop massacres in the Balkans
quote: * Extremist right-wing politics now ascendant, that make any traditional 20th-century Republican look like a Liberal
quote: * Crackdowns against organized labor, and a broad-based war on "Socialism"
quote: * Spending more on the military than all other countries in the world, combined (and that's not even counting the wars)
quote: Ironic, that the Taliban would've never existed if it weren't for U.S. sponsoring the Wahhabi perversion of Islam in the first place
quote: Is why the world needs a stronger pan-African peace-keeping force. The proper way to handle such situations is through the U.N.,
quote: So a group of people that embrace the constitution as its central guiding document is extremist right-wing?
quote: Even the liberal hero FDR thought public-sector labor unions were an awful idea.
quote: Thanks for proving you don't give a flying shit about facts.
quote: That's a little bit of a stretch; they didn't get extreme until after the resistance, and they were but one of many tribal groups we helped.
quote: The others, the northern alliance, helped us run them out of town, in case you forgot about that part.
quote: How many atrocities have to go on under the UN's nose before the left realizes the UN isn't worth the prime New York real estate that it sits on?
quote: won't let the the Venezuelas, or the Nigerias, or the Saudi Arabias, or the Irans, jerk us around by the 'gas nozzle' the way they are doing it now.
quote: Tesla, in comparison to Fisker, has been much more successful, meeting most of its ambitious deadlines.

quote: Thursday issued a press release commenting, "We don't consider ourselves a loser."
quote: And while it was two years late in delivering its first vehicle, the Karma, it points to sales of 1,500 Karmas as a sign of success. The company also says that it created 1,000 jobs.
quote: ...if Fisker succeeds the government will have created jobs "for free"
quote: That's not say Mitt Romney won't be right in the long run, though. Fisker may yet prove to be a loser.
quote: And the loan program was originally signed into law in Dec. 2007, with funding signed into law in the Fall of 2008 by President George W. Bush.
quote: ...the loan would never have been possible without deep commitment from some members of the Republican party.
quote: ...most of the companies, universities, and projects that received loans are still alive and well, the paper says...In other words, not only are 99 percent of the programs still on the route to repayment, the net loss on the green energy programs is less that expected .
quote: To Mitt Romney's credit, 67 percent of Americans thought he won the debate in a CNN opinion poll, compared to only 25 percent for Obama.
quote: But the fact remains he was definitely off base in many of his claims about the government's green energy efforts and was on shaky footing when he gave President Obama the blame -- or the credit -- for all of the green energy efforts, when many of those efforts were installed by his own Republican colleagues.
quote: Yeah D is forward, forward to Greece and to Spain.
quote: You sure about that? Germany has a cultural advantage(They're smart and most work hard with a cultural commonality i.e. they are not a melting pot of cultures)
quote: You are trying to make the argument that Germany is a melting pot because of Turkish immigrants. Because you don't know; most Turks do not assimilate into the German society instead maintain what amounts to colonies with their own Turkish stores and communities the are generally hostile to Germans and mooch off the welfare state this is the reason to put it lightly Germans
quote: I'm sure African-Americans "leech off" the welfare state in this country too according to your stupid right wing racist opinion.
quote: So no, the case is not that different between USA and Germany, and as the unemployment numbers show, we are somewhat recovering.
quote: according to your stupid right wing racist opinion.
quote: but it has no relevance on the arguments I posted.
quote: We have to go forward.
quote: Obama picked "forward" as a way to jab a needle in the retina of every educated, intelligent conservative, every single day.
quote: But he's a proven, successful businessman who knows how to create jobs and balance a checkbook.
quote: I gave Obama a chance. He failed. Now let's more forward with someone else.
quote: Someone who has no concept of what being poor means?
quote: I see Republican's wanting to do exactly what you say, throw the doors open to energy production on federal land, drill anywhere we can, build new refineries, new pipelines... Make more then we need? Sell it to China!
quote: 1. Just being able to start pumping a meaningful amount of domestic oil will take decades.
quote: 2. What will we do when that runs out?
quote: So it's OK to invest in drilling which will take decades to pay off and run out a few years later,
quote: Over simplification that the left defaults to for lack of understanding how markets work. You never "run out" of anything, things simply get more expensive until development of an alternative makes sense.
quote: But trying to debate anything remotely related to economics with you is pretty pointless.
quote: So what will you do in the meantime where gas is so expensive that it costs more to drill than the amount you get and no alternatives have been developed.
quote: Free market would NEVER have built the interstates we had in the 50's
quote: You're going to lose big in November anyway, and I will be rubbing it in your face all the time.
quote: That's what you guys said too, before Reagan won by land slide.
quote: Every penny spent making alternatives cheaper is worth it.
