dems in the US can put it off KXL until 2020 (if not sooner), when the repub party effectively dies due to demographics.

All hail democracy!

The Republicans Killed Democracy off in 2008 when all of a sudden it took 60 votes to pass any legislation.
So they are still in charge, and screwing this Country so they can blame it on Obama.

Some call it a quiet coup.

What Democracy requires a 60% majority??
Not the Country the Founding Fathers created.

60-vote cloture is a moot point - no bill that fails at that level would make it through the House anyway

We had the House for 2 years, and got nothing through
Jobs bills
Veteran Jobs bills
Raising Taxes on the rich
stopping the Corporate and Big Oil Subsidies
Back Ground checks

all stopped by the Minority

Obama had a bill that would have cut 1.5 trillion in spending, the Repubs just decided to not allow a vote on it, and let the sequester go through instead, that only cuts $86 billion.

They won't even allow Obama to cut spending!

All the Dems need is less than 30 Republicans to get a bill through the house, not all of them are treasonous tools.

I wouldn't be so smug Hedge, that oil or like kind will find it's way to tidewater. Speaking of demographics, have you been to B.C., particularly Vancouver, lately? Look at the cities skyline and you'll notice it looks like little Hong Kong.

I see that the FAA/Administration apologists were apparently unable to muster any citation to deny the allegations in the Wall Street journal editorial I quoted yesterday. If the FAA didn't set up the website criticized in the editorial, it would have been a simple matter to contradict. The Senatorial action quoted was recorded on Youtube, so it would be rather difficult to contradict:


Of course, the virtually unanimous congressional action to end the obvious, despicably intentional inconvenience of the public by the FAA will make the FAA action depart from mainstream news, but this episode demonstrates this administration's attitude toward governance: political gain over public good.

The Republican thought that the Cuts of the Sequester wouldn't harm anything, and when they did, they blame the President.

They were happy to make the cuts, saying any cuts are better than no cuts, so they were lying as well.

Well where do you think a large part of the oil will go Joe? Combine that with 6 billion in loan guarantees for the project by its largest customer and considering who is responsible for that skyline and you can begin to see the inevitability.

What…? Did bluebag get taught something?

But still, wouldn't the short-term jobs be awesome?

 Wow…. How short sided can he be? Narrow, short… closed… certainly not "open-mined" to alternatives to the short sided whimpy c#m shot of "progress" offered by at least two of the taco-re-staters.

I'm all-in if we can cut the Saudis out.

 I can almost see the blinders on this big thinker type.

And if we're producing and refining oil, why would we ship it and import oil? Isn't that illogical?

 There he goes again… Thinking cap firmly cutting off circulation to vital organs…. Namely… the brain

"I think you're wrong, jghedge."

That's nice. Call Wikipedia and tell them they're wrong too.

Also TransCanada, which Wiki cites as the source for most of that link.

 Wait… jghedge has some knowledge and research to back what he has written?

 Why hasn't the thinker done anything remotely as keen? Oh, wait… The thinking cap… I nearly forgot.

"Oil from proposed Keystone pipeline could end up exported"

Could? Hahahaha

Ya think?

Why else would Canada be piping their own oil to the Gulf of Mexico?

Why not just build their own refineries?

Amazing how easy it is for the repub party to play their constituency for fools.

Like taking candy from a baby.

 Now I just look bad… I haven't writ anything as clear as this yet… I'm working on it though.

 Hard to believe that it really is that easy. There is no second thought. Just promise a handful of jobs, imaginary "cheap gas" and you have set the hook. The countryside will be uninhabitable and there will be no drinking water for hundreds of miles by the time they realize what they have given away with all their flag waving and jobs rhetoric. So much trust in the republicon leaders, as if they really have the people's best intrests in mind.

 It only takes a few posts from this blewguy to put a resounding exclamation point on the answer to the "Why are republicons wrong about everything" question…. I read… and laugh for the comic relief, but weep with sadness for these people who think that business will make things right and bring back America to its former glory

Hahahaha, Blewey and TGT both tried to argue how good KXL will be for the US

 Like you say, it only takes a few questions to find out the bad side of the KXL. For me it doesn't take much poking to find out the truth about actions such as this.

These two characters need to watch The Wizard Of Oz a few more times…. They still to the Oz as if there is one, and never bother to look behind the curtain and find out the truth.

It's sad for each of them.

I have to say… TGT's cartoon has some truth to it….

The airline industry has made a mockery of the FAA.
Agribusiness has made a mockery of the FDA.
NRA has made a mockery of the ATF.

The list goes on… The executives of republicon favorite businesses get tapped to be on one committee or another and soon find themselves in a position of power and they will to destroy or push back regulations enough to make it seem as though there are no regulations for the industry that they themselves came from and are in charge of regulating….

So… yeah… FAA is wasteful… other than posting cartoons on an online climbers forum… What do you plan to do about it?

oh, wait…. you're a repuglicon… you'll do nothing.

Thanks for the oh so meaningful input TGT

Really, you're almost claiming that the extremist are justified, in their terrorism.

Please correct me if I'm wrong.

The wars in the ME by the USA where self defense, in reaction to 9/11.

Do you think the suicide attacks are justified by this?

Do you think suicide bombings are OK because of the US caused deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan?

Simple Question Craig Fry.

I go away for a day
and this is what I come back to??

Now you're scaring my wife dude, please don't come after me, like the psycho you sound like.

The wars in the ME by the USA where self defense, in reaction to 9/11.
should I even respond???
Was Coz sleeping through the last decade, or did he forget to listen to the news??? maybe he just heard the Fox report, which misinforms instead of giving you the facts, so then it would be understandable that you would be 100% wrong.

Defense of what in reaction to 911?
They were just a bunch of terrorists, they weren't a country, there was no invasion to defend against. Most of them were dead after 911 was over anyway.

We then invaded 2 countries that had nothing to do with 911, if you ask them about it, they would say they have no idea what 911 is, they think they we invaded to conquer their country and occupy it, like we did. And we killed 100s of thousands of them for no reason what so ever, they were fighting for their lives. we were there on a lie about WMDs.

Bush didn't even bother with Osama bin Laden after 2003, but because we were the occupying evil, the wars were now being fought because they were shooting back at us, so we had to keep fighting.

Turns out I can be wrong too. If by wrong I mean posted a post to one thread that was meant for another… then yes… I was wrong...

This post, which magically ended up on the Politics/religion thread, was indeed meant for the whats wrong with republicons thread.

Hopefully none of you take me to be anything above human.

Here it is...

Or are you just stupid and fail to comprehend economics as it relates to gov't subsidy?

It takes a very unique perspective to ask for a complete and thorough review of the finances of a company that may have made some money from one "contract"…..

While completely lacking the will for the same scrutiny of another "contract"

Here is a list of 100 contractors…


...will you take some time and look into any of these?

I understand you have a bias to the right…. but after looking into the dubious companies on this list ask yourself "How many of these billions of taxpayer dollars are really necessary? Then ask "How is this making government smaller?" like the idiot republicon/libertarian goofs constantly yammer on about… Seems to me all this "contracting" is costing much more than "government" has ever cost taxpayers.

So which is it going to be?

Smaller government and contracting at twice the cost?

Or government making mistakes on occasion with some contracts that don't live up to the hype of the contractors claims?

You're a fool if you think that any contractors exist outside the government. In other words they would not exist if it wasn't for government and each contractor relies heavily on government (they just can't admit that they suck on the teet of the big bad government like a 32 Billion back-alley whore)

They all have a problem with government in so far as: When they sell their goods/services to the government or the public, they'd like to do so with no oversight, no review, no regulation. I.E they want to be able to do as little as possible and get paid as much as possible (as their business charter states is their goal and seems to be the american way of business for the last 30 years). They want to be able to overcharge the government/taxpayer/client/public when they want without the accountability. They want to sell shoddy workmanship at top dollar (granted, most do not to this extent or extreme, but if you think that cutting corners is never done.. you are a bigger fool than I)

Here are just the first 3 examples of contractor waste by your favored corporate puppet masters…

No. 1 Ranked Government contractor in 2010 was Lockheed Martin Corporation. Here is what they do - Lockheed Martin has agreed to pay $37.9 million to settle charges that it inflated costs on several Air Force contracts, the Justice Department announced today. (this was in 2003 and I'm sure they've really cleaned up their act)

No. 2 Ranked Gorernment contractor in 2010 was The Boeing Company. Here is what they do - Leaked Audit: Boeing Overcharged Army Up to 177,000 Percent on Helicopter Spare Parts - $644.75 for a small gear smaller than a dime that sells for $12.51: more than a 5,100 percent increase in price. $1,678.61 for another tiny part, also smaller than a dime, that could have been bought within DoD for $7.71: a 21,000 percent increase. $71.01 for a straight, thin metal pin that DoD had on hand, unused by the tens of thousands, for 4 cents: an increase of over 177,000 percent. (This was in 2011 andy there is no reason to believe that they have not completely turned around they're entire philosophy by now, right)

No. 3 Ranked Government contractor in 2010 was Northrop Grumman Corporation. Here is what they do - In 2000 Northrop Grumman paid $1.4 million to settle a whistleblower case alleging that the company overcharged the Air Force for B-2 bomber instruction and repair manuals. In a case inherited through the acquisition of TRW, Northrop Grumman agreed in 2003 to pay $111 million to settle claims that TRW overcharged the Pentagon for work on several space electronics programs in the early 1990s. Also in 2003, Northrop Grumman agreed to pay a total of $80 million to settle two False Claims Act cases, one involving work by Newport News Shipbuilding before Northrop acquired it in 2001 and the other involving the delivery of allegedly defective aerial target drones.
In 2004, Northrop settled for $1.8 million the remaining individual whistleblower case from the late 1980s involving cruise missiles. The following year it paid $62 million to settle the remaining claims relating to overcharging on the B-2 bomber program. (as reported in 2010… and they have really changed by now…. Would you be willing to bet on it?)

….do I need to show more, because there are as many claims and settlements as there are general contractors….

BTW - This took about 6 minutes of my time to find….

What? No takers?

Seems like an easy case to make?

Less government right? More business… right?

I was going to post this on the why so much hate thread, thread, but I decided it would be better here, to not upset the PC conservatives as much..

Not just hate threads, but hate directed at threads

I try to have a little fun and have a BlueRig Tribute thread, and showcase his quotes, like Werner, and all hell breaks loose, and for some reason, the panties got so bunched that even my fellow Doctor, Dr. Sprock was flaming so hard that he almost blew a gasket.

I guess no one read the quotes, It was all in fun and laughs.
But no, it devolved into a gang pile of BS slander and misdirected hate.
I didn't even say anything bad about Blew, nor did he say anything bad to me that I would get butt hurt about.

I went to bed early after starting the thread, and was going to delete it, but thought it would be fun to see what slander I could troll up. I awake the next morning, and I see the Dr. Sprock thread, and I go Yea, I Dr. F tribute thread!!!,
and as I am typing onto it, to take sprock down for not reading the blurig tribute, the thread gets deleted!!!, I go to check my bluerig thread,and it gets deleted the next minute.
Well I guess the admin was alerted, I can guess the crybaby that made the call.

But what gets me, that for some reason these morons think that I can't take it, What could be further from the truth, the reason the Dr. F threads hang around is Because I can Take Anything, I don't give a crap what someone says about me, I have heard it all, I have no reputation or image that I have to maintain, None what so ever, I always come back for more, and will respond with a question. Why? Why not answer the question, let's move past the disagreement, and debate the topic, and I will have some words for if you can't do it better than at a fool's level.

So when someone says that I can't take it, it must be a projection of their problems, not mine.

I have more to discuss, but it comes down to this, you were all wrong about telling me Not to do what I have done, It actually turned things around for better!

BlueRig was right about one thing, too many people are a-holes, and some a-holes most desired goal is to out a-hole each other. sad, Is that the right direction?
