Keystone XL needs support

February 22, 2013

Perhaps President Barack Obama should worry more about the American people than about radical environmentalists who have bullied him during his first four years, never satisfied with his own......

Your "wrong" streak continues Bob...my "concern" is big oil making unprecedented profits, taking lucrative subsidies from paid off politicians, while keeping a lid on production! Who is this gov't you keep harping on Bob??...it's none other than our paid off politicians!...but just keep making nonsensical generalizations about progressivism, instead of addressing the real issue of "big gov't" being in bed with big oil.

Well then, your words certainly belie your claimed belief(s). Your concern is big oil making, what, 8 cents profit on a gallon of but no concern whatsoever that your vaunted big government profits an average of 48 cents on that same gallon by simply taking it? Rebuttal? To what? Progressivism? Ok, it s*u*c*k*s.

Bob...Your last post is typical in that it rambles and says nothing, offers no rebuttal whatsoever, and a concoction of completely erroneous conclusions as to my beliefs, with the prime example being your inability to demonstrate specifically where I "love big gov't." And it's rather amusing that you interpret my quoting you as flattery, while completely missing the sarcasm. However, saving the best for last... this is my all time favorite... "I do not support free market capitalism."...after I've owned a successful business for over 30 years!!

Laker, you already admitted you refuse to do what you expect others to do. No need to beat that horse, you're doing it for me. I support free market capitalism and defend it. You do not. You like big government and the control that goes along with it, I do not. You're too embarrassed to admit it, defend it and explain progressives' goals, I am not. My goal is individualism, progressives' is the collective. Feel free of accusing me of anything you like but keep on quoting me, it's flattering plus it makes you remember.

cont.....You say this is an improper use of oxymoron, ok, let's refer to it as the height of irony when you jump to the defense of the oil companies, while bashing big gov't.

Well after my last post, I see you've at least given up on the ridiculous notion that I "don't want to give up what I expect others to"...and decide to switch to an equally absurd idea, that I love big gov't...please enlighten me how you arrived at that, or show me where I implied that. Did you say RESEARCH Bob, great, let's go right to that bastion of truth, FOX news, who points out that the big 5 made over 1 TRILLION dollars in profit between 2001 and 2011, with Exon breaking a quarterly record last year of $16 BILLION.... And they're only making 2 cents on a dollar, aww, where's my hankerchief. Isn't it obvious why big oil doesn't care what the gov't take is!...you can't see they're in bed together!?? And on top of all that... production is down!! When repeal of oil subsidies came before Congress, what a shock, it was defeated...looks like big oil's 65 million dollar lobby investment paid off!

Rs. so your answer to the many posts is to call me a woman and spew clams that my posts are comic strips. Yeah I can see why you believe in your intrinsic value. Now spew some facts that we can actually see your brilliance wont you?

You need to do some research laker, first the definition of oxymoron then how is big oil fleecing the public when their profit/gal of fuel is 2cents on the dollar while Big Government gets an average of 48 cents/gal. Progressives hate to be challenged while they fill their gas tanks, being to lazy to walk to the store. Progressives complain about Big Agro with their stomach full. Progressives rail against Big Pharma while they pick up their diet pills and depression meds because Big Agro has caused an obesity epidemic. All the while they ignore BIG GOVERNMENT confiscating almost 2/3 of our income leaving a lot less to spend on Big Private anything. So yeah, I challenge Progressive nonsense whenever the opportunity arises. Don't like it? Then go somewhere where everybody thinks like you and you don't have to explain your love for big government.

TiredOfTax, you're one funny woman (still) to think that car dealerships were stripped of their franchises based on their support for a particular political party. That comment may actually take the cake to be the mother lode of all comments you've ever said.

Also, the first page of the business section of the New York Times on Friday had a story: 'Sign of a Comeback: US Carmakers Are Hiring', which detailed, among others, the fact that the Big Three are not only hiring here in the US, but actually investing hundreds of millions of dollars here in the US as well.

TiredOfTax, whenever I read your 'comments' I am quickly reminded of those Family Circus comics every Sunday where it would show the boy's path around the neighborhood in no particular reasonable direction, through back yards, front yards, under picnic tables, through kitchens, over a mailbox, over three dogs, under a couch. Sort of like the illogical ideas in your comments.

Yup, I'm backed into a corner, you caught me!!...I want to keep the billion dollar subsidies that my business receives, but I want big oil to give up theirs!!...how selfish of me. It was YOU who first brought up big gov't, and now you bring up another ridiculous assertion.."man up and defend it."...where did that come from??? And I just love the oxymoron of attempting to defend Big Oil, while whining about big gov't!! One final time Bob: My issue is specifically about big oil (not any "others"),and the outrageous subsidies they are receiving due to their multi million dollar lobbying efforts...and the fact that production is down, while Joe consumer continues to get no relief. If you want to twist that to mean I'm against captitalism of all forms, I "don't want to give up what I expect others to", and then rant about "progressives hate em all"...well, feel free and have fun.

A great example of what liberals decide is the healthcare law. Why was it that the democrat controlled states were the first to be exempted from provisions of Obamacare? Why is it that the companies that backed Obama got the largest share of tax breaks? The next example the AUTO takeover... why were dealerships dropped? Who decided what dealers were dropped? Why was it overwhelmingly republican supported dealers that were dumped? GE, Google and others PAID NO TAXES even though they made RECORD profits! As a matter of fact look at every single policy that Obama has signed into law, they ALL lean so far left that the Tower of Pisa now looks to be plumb!

'Lol'..cute...more like nervous laughter I suspect. It's only irrelevant because it backed you into a corner. Thanks for being honest and disingenuous at the same time. In typical progressive fashion you don't want to give up what you expect others to and complain if they don't. Ha! Now man up and start defending Big Government, after all, you brought it up.

Why support it? A spike of 109% for natural gas. They already are passing the blame. Nothing new. Seems like a crime with all the gas lines already in place.

Ques: Why don't you give away your time, energy, and labor? Ans: Hmmm, because I don't want to give away my "time, energy and labor" lol! Your rhetorical question is irrelevant to the entire topic. Anyway, enjoy your Sunday Bob...

Who has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing one drop of fuel to the marketplace yet reaps the most 'profit'...Big Collective Government. Who takes profits from one person and gives it to another person...Big Collective Government. Since you're so concerned about Big Oil profits, who makes more 'profit' out of one gallon of gas?? Why, BIG GOVERNMENT of course. You never answered the question, why don't you give away your time, energy and labor?

Bob, You're right...You've asked a "simple" question to the point of being nonsensical. Anyway, here goes: Because I've criticized big oil for unprecedented profits, and receiving large subsidies because of paid off politicians, yet keeping production low while the average Joe sees no relief at the pump, you have somehow twisted that in your mind to arrive at the absurd conclusion that I believe "others" have to give up their "time, labor and profits!!" Do I really need to expound on the principle that corporations need to make a profit!! What I am addressing is BIG OIL and their gouging of the American public!! Are you ready for the source I used most Bob...none other than FOX news, who gave a scathing report on our oil companies. This isn't about all the "others" Bob, it's about Big Oil. In a way Bob, I envy you since it's not as frustrating if you are oblivious to the fact that the American public is getting ripped off.

Big oil, big pharma, big agro, big profits...progressives hate them all..BUT you progressives just love BIG GOVERNMENT. Why is that? Because your masters instilled fear and anger into you and told you it's for your own good. You believe them, I don't.

Laker, I asked you a simple question. Are you unwilling or unable to answer it? I don't have to justify anything. You, on the other hand, better explain why others have to give up their time, labor and profits while those you progressives choose don't have to. I believe in individualism which needs no defense or justification. Progressivism is all about control. Justify that.

"So you do make a profit." "It's ok for you, but not for those of your choosing."??? huh, you're comparing my business to big oil!...oh that's right, how could I forget that like Big Oil, I personally gave $65 million for lobbying efforts. "Keep changing the subject"....you mean like EIC...how is that relevant?? "Get rid of all the subsidies."...ha, dream on with the lobbyists buying the politicians. "Big blah blah".. hard to rebut that, lol. Big oil is making unprecedented profits, they enjoy fat subsidies, while keeping production down and gouging the average Joe. I'd love to hear a justification for that Bob.

So you do make a profit. Thats talking out of both sides of your mouth. It's ok for you but not for those of your choosing? Like subsidies, EIC is ok but subsidies to 'big' blah blah is bad. Get rid of them all and I'll be satisfied. Dodge my question all you want, keep changing the subject because you have no answer. Typical progressive rubbish.

Bob...The irony in your entire post is truly amusing!... beginning with the oxymoron "incessant blathering". But here's the topper (drum roll.., lol)....I've owned a successful business for many years!!!..and you're attempting to lecture me about capitalism, lol!! I live quite comfortably, and my business is successful because I worked my butt off, and provided good personal service to my clients. Oh, and I received no subsidies like big oil, which by the way was $2 BILLION to the big 5 companies....and which by the way on the very day it came before Congress to repeal these outrageous subsidies, Mitch McConnell rec'd 150K in his campaign fund...care to take a wild guess who from Bob??...and then came a filibuster, and then the matter was tabled! Ask some questions and know your audience may prevent you from making absurd, albeit amusing accusations.
