Our President cant agree on 3 feet

Our President cant agree on the 3 feet that the Keystone XL pipeline will cross the Canada and United Sates boarder. All the other Governors that have the pipeline will go in want it. Its simply the 3 feet Obama refuses to agree on matter.

Survey says! "...men associate red meat with masculinity."

A survey by the Journal of Consumer Research says "Men associate meat with masculinity." Red meat, that is.

The surveys in the U.S. and Britain, plus a survey of 23 languages, indicate that males make a "strong connection between eating meat - especially muscle meat, like steak - and masculinity."

I feel that any person, female or male, who needs to get their reinforcement of gender identity from a diet, whether vegan, or otherwise, is truly a PUSSY!!!!

'Nuff said.

Supply and Demand

My friend and I were discussing Ron Paul supporters and I pointed out that after learning the basic tenents of Adam Smith's "Supply and Demand " the Libertarians as well as the Tea Partiers and most Republicons believe themselves to be experts on economics with the sole basis for their expertise being the refrain "Free Market". In actuality the Free Maket is much like Newton's First Law of Motion , "An object in motion tends to stay in motion" which only works in a vacuum.

What Do Democrats Really Want?

Thom plus logo Thomas Friedman, the confused billionaire, told us decades ago that "free trade" is what made the Lexus a successful product when, in fact, it was decades of Japanese government subsidies and explicit tariffs that did so.
