Oil

Thom,

Why does Russia and China own oil rights in Irag and the U.S. does not? Also, why don't we, the U.S., own any oil rights in the Gulf of Mexico?

Thanks,

Why are we celebrating Osama bin Laden's Murder

I don’t believe this paper will be popular, but I believe it must be said. Despite what Obama said tonight, justice has not been done. Osama bin Laden’s death will forever be a reminder of how this country has changed in yet another way from what it was founded on.

A Capital Idea Part 67: If Only They Could Hear

Q: How do you address the "Raising taxes on Corporations/Top 2% will only raise costs on the middle class" position?

This is a bit of a logic trap for me... I understand how things were prior to 1980, and I know "fair taxation" is the key to a successful society. However it has been tricky for me to tackle this position.

Any input is appreciated.
