And pictures of the first plane

AND video of firemen on the street reacting to an odd plane flying where it shouldn't be, immediately prior to hitting the north tower.

At this point, I've just got to write off ~20% of the American public as totally, irretrievably idiotic.

The pipeline is nothing but a giant "attack here terrorists" sign running through the country. There's no way to secure it.

It could be put underground.
Also, what's keeping terrorists from attacking all the already existing pipelines and powerlines, etc.

Oil spills due to pipeline breaks tend to not be too bad since they have valves that automatically shut them off when they detect a leak (I.E. - unmetered outflow = leak = autoshutoff).

Now if the terrorists really wanted to piss people off, they would be breaking water mains in big cities that are really cold right now.

The XL pipeline would require massive eminent domain seizures by a private Canadian oil firm in order to cover that many miles of US territory.

Of course Republican dimwits pretend to care about property rights and overreaching federal government power, but the reality is that this issue is saturated with stupidity, ignorance, and dominated by an army of brainless idiots who don't know what they are doing and don't care.

Republicans are LITERALLY too stupid and too uninformed to vote. That is why the country is so fucked up.

We look forward every day to your grouchy, old man arguments and comments you add to the conversation and share with us...

Glad to be of service. Certainly lights years of improvement on the meaningless idiotic drivel you post.

If this right-wing nut, can't pay cash for medical care,as True Americans do, he should be denied medical care. Why should he get help for his economic failures. He's not a TBTF. People like this will destroy America.
Did anyone notice that he is a Right-Winger that held a Big Govt. Socialist job?

Get sick,pay cash or DIE,Rep/Con/Teas.

As evidenced by your very presence.

Wrong, you're the only idiot so far. Just because it's your thread and as a coward you lean on the delete button, it doesn't make you the judge. Everyone knows you're the idiot.

Translation: I just got my ass kicked by Dan. Instead of being a man and fessing up to my outrageous lie, I'll double down on stupidity and hope the readers are the morons I think they are.

Once again Call It Crazy demonstrates his low opinion of the intelligence of anyone reading this thread.

It seems that every year, the high profile Presidential candidates all speak in carefully focused talking points meant to pander to his or her party's base of voters. High on emotion, low on substance.

This is something for women to use and waste time with. At least that is what my wife does for the most part. I have a theory that browsing Pinterest mimicks the shopping experience. Since nearly all women love to shop, that makes this website like methadone for heroin users.

Wingnuts want something for nothing?

..."California voters strongly believe that state and local governments should be spending more money to improve the conditions of its roadways – but they don’t want to pay more in taxes for those nicer highways, according to a new survey by the Field Research Corporation released Friday.


By a 71 percent to 14 percent margin voters want more not less funds to go to the maintenance of existing roads.

Yep, those lefty, liberal wingnut voters in the Blue state of CA want something for nothing..

What a bunch of leeches.....

Other States should pay for it. People in New Jersey live in luxurious homes, while we live in shacks. It's only fair to redistribute that wealth.

The problem is that the Republicans approve of all the evil things Democrats do like what you mentioned. In fact, the Republicans want to expand the evil.

Michael Moore made a similar point in one of his films, I think Fahrenheit 9/11. The choice is between the D's, who talk sweetly while making secret deals with their corporate sponsors, and the R's, who campaign brazenly on their sponsors' interests and then give them an office in the west wing. For the D's, being nasty is a by-product, a necessary evil; for the R's, it is the point, having the power to become wrath and declare vengeance. Neither party is truly liberal or conservative, both have become imperial patronage networks maximizing revenues for their sponsors.

Give the job creators a break, guys! They're over-taxed, over-regulated, beset by venal unions; their customers' discretionary income is decimated by illegal job thieves; they haven't had a no-bid contract in years; outsourcing/offshoring has been made punishable by death; their senior management can't take any more austerity.....and you whiners are piling on like grave dancing libtards. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves. Bain Capital would love these guys.

Average Americans can no longer afford owning a home

It really depends upon where you live (which has always been a factor). In Houston, not to mention smaller towns in Texas, someone making $50K a year could/should be able to save up to make a down payment on a house that will cost between $100K to $150K. And I'm not talking a POS, no, I'm talking a 15 - 30 year old house, 1800 - 2500 square feet, a decent lot (6000 square feet and up).

I use to live in Oregon. My house in Texas cost me less than $120K, in Oregon that same house (the Portland area) would have cost at least $200K - $250K. Yet, I'm making more money in Texas than in Oregon; and the cost of living in Texas is lower soooo, my standard of living (and life) is higher. I couldn't afford this standard in Oregon and I don't even want to talk about what it would cost in CA.

When I got laid off (oh, so long ago), I didn't even LOOK at CA for jobs. I knew I couldn't afford to live there. If you're making (and I'm just picking a number) $100K a year in CA, you would probably make $80 - $95K in Texas and yet your standard of living would be higher. If a young person wants/needs - refuses to move from CA; then yes, they will have trouble finding something affordable and suitable.

Just one man's opinion and observation.
