#1 Ask mainstream Amerika the same question again after the US gives up East Asia + roughly one-half or more of the Pacific to China + PLA in the name of Debt-luuuving Debt - you know, "GLOBALISM" + OWG "CO-SUPERPOWERS" AGENDUMS.

#3 Farmers are producing huge harvests and receiving historically high prices.

"High prices" for a while anyway. Subsidized by corn ethanol and high gasoline taxes. No discussion of fly-over country woodland clearing in order to plant more gov't corn gas. No discussion of sky-high land prices brought about by corn production..... until they planted too damn much and prices SLUMPED!

Got to get those Iowa agriculture votes. Keep the Federal payments for the dozens of farm giveaway programs coming.

#4 Don't even get me started on the Ag tax exemptions available for fuel.

#5 Ouch! Hanson nails it again. Is there some category or designation less than a "virtual President?" I'd vote for that description of this presidency. By all measures this president is an abject failure; an affirmative action president that 1/2 the electorate elected. They did it for several reasons: 1. to salve their liberal consciences, 2. a young uninformed idealistic and zealous voter who bought into the snake-oil this president was selling, 3. by an electorate that wanted stuff that someone else was going to pay for, or 4. a part of the population that wanted payback for perceived wrongs. Social justice was the standard. Reparations and re-distribution of wealth was and is the means of satisfying social justice standards. In any most other third world countries he would have been ousted in some manner that would not be gentle. In our country, he has not been impeached for many of the reasons Hanson cites. So, people here are hanging on just hoping that three years will go very fast and that damage will be limited because Obama's lame duck status.

#7 One definition of a bureaucracy is that if you cut off its' head, it keeps functioning.

#9 I was reading some of John Adams (our second President) quotes.

The consequences arising from the continual accumulation of public debts in other countries ought to admonish us to be careful to prevent their growth in our own.

Avarice, ambition, revenge and licentiousness would break the strongest cords of our Constitution, as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people.

But a Constitution of Government once changed from Freedom, can never be restored. Liberty, once lost, is lost forever.

In my many years I have come to a conclusion that one useless man is a shame, two is a law firm, and three or more is a congress.


I wonder how many of the quotes of our current President will be long-remembered? I don't think one can trust any of them to contain any truth?

"If you like your health plan, you can keep your health plan." will stand for the ages.

Similar to Bush the 1st's "Read my lips, no new taxes!" and slick Willies' "I did NOT have sex with that woman!"

The United States as a "developing nation" must be somewhere near the top, followed closely by his "57 States".

#13 FWIW - a lot of conservatives stayed home on the Bush/Clinton election for just that reason. He paid for that line in lost votes and being stupid enough to buy the negotiated Donk promises of future spending cuts for taxes now for which the cuts never appeared.

#14 Was he ever? He was elected, but he has never stood up to the responsibility, accountability, and he has never respected the constitution. The next elections will be interesting as we wait and see if he relinquishes the position he holds.

You know, I heard they got a great big book in the library all full of words and stuff, where you can look things up and see what they mean. And librarians. Wrrrrowww. Or so I've heard.

#16 Jerkface - IMHO, you will find that the generally well-educated and seasoned participants of this blog, save, in a generic sense, yourself, are quite aware of the downside of Conservatives saying stupid stuff. We acknowledge it and, mostly, vow to improve and move along, hoping to improve the bench and, thereby, our country.

Your ilk, conversely, is happy to just continue mouthing debunked platitudes and engage in ad-homonym attacks in place of reasoned discourse. Good luck with that.

We, like many in your life I am sure, are laughing at you, not with you...

#17 Looks like Jerkoff's mommy let him off restrictions and on the computer again. I wish someone would talk to her about that.

The Tea party doesn't revere Bush (either one). Neither Bush were perfect. But they were much better than Carter, Clinton, or Obumbles.

You've been swallowing your own bullsh*t again. Should be careful about that.

#18 I think the help Zenobia suggests is over at 019.

If you find yourself looking at travel books, you got it backwards. Again.
