    With Gas Prices Soaring, Obama Looks to Ramp Up U.S. Oil Production

    It's really not an issue here in Grand Junction. CO. Prices have been holding at $3.62 for 2 months... Nowhere near the predicted $5.00... What's really a mystery is that all five separate corporations charge the exact same amount... Collusion anybody? ricksfolly

    Who really still support Obama?

    Picky, picky... Obama can be all of those things, and he's still the peoples best choice, as long as he still goes along with all the entitled programs, which are really a small percentage of the budget. SS, Medicare, and unemployment insurance are NOT entitlements and will never be. ricksfolly

    White House: Limited Role in Libya Means No Need to Get Congressional Authorization

    Re: White House: Limited Role in Libya Means No Need to Get Congressional Authorizati Wrong... Obama was well within his legal rights. When he took out OBL it was to protect the United states from more attacks from a sworn enemy who attacked us on 9/11 and was capable of doing it again...

    Obama: Palestinian State Must Be Based on 1967 Borders

    In the real world there are only Jews and Arabs, no terrorists, no Jihad, only Jews seeking revenge for what the Arabs did to them and Arabs seeking revenge for what the Jews did to them, back and forth, back and forth. No one knows who fired the first shot... Right now there seems to be a...

    Random thought ... on health and wellness.

    True, but unfortunately most rarely think about what's good for them, only that it tastes good, feels good. Only when they grow old do they start thinking about diets and other health issue. The problem is younger people have short attention spans and it's hard to get keep their attention...

    Government regulation of Churches?

    Churches that spend their tithe money on political adds should have their non-profit status taken away. That's as far as they should take government regulations. All forms of preaching are allowed by the first amendment, including hate, race baiting, abortion, ethnic, and sex discrimination...

    Congress in denial

    >> That's a chilling thought for us seniors, especially since there are so many reactionaries in Congress. Fortunately reelection is their most important drive, even more important than bribes and recognition, so us 60 million senior citizens are safe, at least for the present. I shudder to...

    Congress in denial

    Congress must know that Social Security is an independent group, not connected to the government, that also controls Medicare, and yet they keep talking about reforming it. Are they all in denial, or is it just more gotcha politics. It's true SS loans their surplus to the government every...

    Is Democracy Blocking America's Ability To Solve It's Problems?
