    “The truth will prevail, liberals.”

    The truth is the Republicans will stop caring about the budget deficit the moment a Republican is elected President.

    Conservative say they care care about the budget deficit. But conservative presidents consistently grow deficits. Democratic presidents reduce them. History.

    But they are reduced under Republican controlled legislature. Six years of the Clinton administration. Read your constitution, Congress holds the purse strings.

    Absolutely true! They will never waiver in their quest to be in power, so that they can run up deficits for the things THEY want, like war and corporate welfare.

    So very true. America will become a 2 class society if a republican is elected. the rich and then the others who are poor,handicapped, sick, elderly and anybody who is not rich. Maybe Chris Christie may be an alternative republican that the nation can live with. One of a very few who don’t pander to their own party.

    From 1994 until til 2008 the republicans were in control of the congress. 16 years of republican rule has caused a whole lot of debt to incur. Why? 2 Wars that “W” put us into and a massive amount of money given to pet projects.

    Simple fact: while it still is not a 24/7 answer, and does present its own environmental problems, wind generated electricity is now cheaper to produce than coal, and IS cleaner.


    The impacts, like worker deaths, to produce coal are far more hazardous than wind and hydro. Much as I hate to say it, even nuclear may not only be cleaner (other than the mining of uranium) and safer, than coal. BTW, some of the byproducts of burning coal are also radioactive!

    The rest of the world is enjoying cleaner air and saving money. We’re the only ones dumb enough to not realize this.

    The money being wasted and defrauded from our gov’t due to the legislature’s failure to practice due diligence and use their committees to properly investigate and supervise the many groups and organizations each committee oversees can’t help but cost us billions. These cannibalistic committee heads and their Senate (Reid) & House (Boehnor) leaders give their allies positions of power on important committees and these ‘leaders’ too often turn out to be incompetent or disinterested in anything but the ability to tell people in the next election that they are a committee head. The only time some committess gather is when the press shows interest in their committee.
    The partisan fools, in their effort to manipulate public opinion for the next elections, fail to do their jobs, to read their bills, or to talk across aisles or paradigms to find compromise. They spend hours a day making calls to donors.
    And America declines.
    The only success our politicians and their media tools have done with any real effect is to turn neighbors against neighbors and reduce the level of Civil discourse to barely noticeable levels.
    As we celebrate the birthday of our United States, I pray my neighbors might set aside their partisan rancor and realize that when the bucket lines need to form, the person who is our friend is the one on the right AND the left of us.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    No kidding, but President Bush did not fly two planes into the World Trade Center. Personally I think we should have gone into Afghanistan, dealt with that and stay out of Iraq but those decisions are made under the constitution by the President and the Legislature.

    It was not an all out declaration of war but an authorization for the use of force.
    See Iraq Resolution or the Iraq War Resolution (formally the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002 1, Pub.L. 107-243, 116 Stat. 1498, enacted October 16, 2002, H.J.Res. 114) is a joint resolution (i.e., a law) passed by the United States Congress in October 2002 as Public Law No: 107-243, authorizing the Iraq War.

    It was decided by a bi-partisan vote. So I am satisfied with that, still spending is still high with the larger force out of Iraq.

    Obama and Bernanke are shoveling money into the engine boiler at the rate of $85 Billion per month……and Obama’s train is on the track to a Wrecked America, bankrupt and disconnected from the Founders’ system.

    “Deniers”, and those who don’t see that “green energy” is still an increasingly sophisticated, and functional, technology, are the descendants of the folks telling the Wright brothers powered flight was impossible.


    The fact that infrastructure is still relatively small for wind, and solar, but growing rapidly, is the reason coal, hydro, and nuclear still produce more power, but that’s changing.


    My rural county has very few people, but is getting more solar “farms”. Even one small setup on the edge of town is exporting a lot more power than we use here. But, that too is part of the problem, it is the transportation of that energy, from coal, hydro, or nuclear, that is the real cost, and waste. If every “jurisdiction” works at greater energy independence with “green” forms of production, gee, the sun shines everywhere, we’ll start solving some of the problems.


    As whole books are written on any of the several elements we’re addressing, it IS interesting that cartoon denier bloggers have all the answers in a paragraph, or in a sentence based on stupidity. (They’re way beyond the salvation of simple ignorance.)
