Being a liberal white male living in the heart of the deep south, I’ve had the opportunity to debate a LOT of people about a variety of subjects. The topic of race and tolerance comes up a lot. Social issues are always a hoot! Religion is a BIG one that usually comes into the discussion regardless of the real topic. And then there’s economics. I don’t claim to be an economist, nor do I claim to be an expert on much of anything, but I DO read a lot and I do think I understand the basics about what an economy is and how it works.
The energy industry is at it again, this time with the renewal of the Surface Transportation Bill. They energy companies lackeys in Congress have zeroed out all funding for anything that isn't oil related. This includes all funding for walking and biking facilities including repealing the wildly popular Safe Routes to School program. No Clean air money, no rails to trails, no traffic calming and now they even want to threaten public transit funding. All this non-clean energy transportation will be paid for by...wait for it...
I did a little Photoshop to make Mitt's poster more truthful. Please use it if you wish to.
Q. of E. & Jamie Lee by leighmf on the subject of Royal digestion
To activate the Queen's new normal,
she queried Jamie Lee, informal,
"Dear, how much yogurt will atone
for sixty years upon the throne?"
"All those feasts of beef and suet,
sherry, cognac, by the cruet!"
Sixty years of dainties destined
to be cruditas, intestined.
Her Majesty requires a Fleet
of bioactive cups to eat.
Six a day should do the trick,
and please show Jamie Lee the pic.
It's very depressing to see the level of discourse in America today.

WARNING It’s Starting: United Nations warns of Enormous Food Crisis rapidly approaching with 9 Billion People by 2040.
This week the United Nations released a report stating that the expected strain on food and fuel supply from global population growth -- predicted to reach 9 billion people by 2040 -- hasn't been adequately addressed.
If approved, how can something conceived of stealth, beguile, purposeful omission of material facts, etc be considered a genuine law?!

Allen West tells liberals and President Obama to, “get the hell out of the United States of America.”
When I heard and saw this on the Martin Bashir show… Let me tell you, even in these times of pure hateful INSANITY, I was taken aback. Now the sorry-ass Tea Party legislators have gone too far.
I am disscusted with the way Planned Parenthood has been treated.
I am astonished that in this day and age, that we are still arguing over Roe vs Wade and the de-funding of Planned Parenthood. Claiming that Planned Parenthood does a majority of abortions. Well this just isn't true!!
Planned Parenthood is consistantly being singled out by the Republican Party, and the The Right To Life Organizations.
